The pictures I've seen look just like Chick's.  Whether they are an accurate portrayal is another matter.

General Discussion / My X66

I bought my 69 in 1988 after saving up money to buy a hotrod. As I love Corvettes and all muscle cars I did not know what I was gonna buy but I knew I wanted something cool. There it was in a driveway with a big for sale sign on the back window. I took one look and knew it was mine. Well I bought it drove it for 2 years and had a blast. now its been sitting for the last 27 years and I need to get it back on the road. I have given it to my son and will be working on it soon. I will be posting pics and will have questions as I go along. As I have always gained knowledge and great info on this site I know you guys will help me when I have questions so thanks in advance for a great site. I will see if I can post pictures if not I will get my son to help.

I checked today. 6428845 is superseded by 19179532 and is still available. Now, whether its still made as nice as the one Chick shows I can't say.
Good deal John! For everyone's info, I was surprised when I received my sending unit years ago that it was "made in China" and do not remember exactly but at the time I thought it was expensive.

Note alignment hole in this late 07D 68 hood.


Zinc screw with captured serrated washer for horn.


Phillips screws used on this 07D, whereas our 01B 68 has hex head screws. Did not look but possibly a difference since RS?

Some say the a-arm shims were zinc from the factory but what I've noted seems to indicate they were natural with no coating. Note on Skip's A-arm how well preserved the zinc nut is, the painted A-arm assembly, and how rusty the original shims look. No remnants of zinc IMHO.


Now to the lower hood release and how it is attached with four 3846202 captured washer screws.

The AIM calls out to use four 9780422 (used many places in front end) which is a shouldered screw to attach the lower hood release.  Skipís late 07D 68Z utilizes two shouldered 9780422 to attach to header panel and two 3846202 to attach to radiator support.





Dum-dum location on this survivor.


Original Acorn nuts are approximately 7/16Ē in height.
