To string out the light color play with the viscosity(higher) or air pressure(lower).

I couldn't find a T...so at this point, we don't know if it was cast at Saginaw and shipped to Tonawanda or cast and built at Tonawanda.

Pulled the driver side view mirror. Forgot how hard it is to take a picture of silvered glass.  :D  Can anyone tell me if all these numbers line up with the car, and if the parts are assembly line correct? I assume 5 = May  and  8 = 1968... What does the CBC / DMI / C-2 / B12 Stand for ...Danny

Tonawanda often used two digits for the year, but not in 67-69.

I never would of thought that these type of documents would all of sudden show up. And even more lucky they were just a 30 minute drive from my home.
Congrats !  Finding the doc's alone..what odds? and on top of that they where only a stones throw away...Double the luck.  Run out and play your lucky numbers...Things happen in 3's

Don't get me wrong guys.. As I stated at the very beginning "very sharp car".  The color combo w/white top is absolutely gorgeous and classy with some muscle.

And yes to each his own.  Unfortunately the numbers bug bit me.  It's hard to shake and I'm not in it for a profit either.  Once my Z is complete I plan to drive it.  Not daily, but it will be driven.  Heck I wanna enjoy it.. I'll let the next guy restore it and trailer queen it in the year 2065 after it's found in a barn   ;)

X33RS, I totally agree in reference to your earlier statement about the money one can spend to restore one.  Luckily for me, I have the skills to do my own restoration, except for the final paint and that's only because I don't have a booth  ;D  I also have a plane jane Camaro currently sitting on a jig as I'm in the process of welding in a new upper dash, cowl panel, firewall and both shoulders.  Several times I've been asked about selling it as is.  My response is "Do you have the skills to do this and if not Do you have deep pockets" because you'll be over your head in no time.

There is nothing like driving a good survivor... they close up tight and they drive tight, few restored vehicles have all the original sound deadening & sealers not to mention the foam strips inside the gauges and the ducting.

Little details, which to most would seem inconsequential, take time to do correctly and completely and are typically not covered in resto guides, however such items make a world of difference in how a restored car feels to drive.
