I have more pics of survivor 69 Z's that I can't find at the moment, and the one I did find I can't post.  But it's one of Larry Christensen's cars.  Built in Norwood in April and has the clamp.    That's the latest date I've found so far in my collection of survivors.

Does anyone know what temperature each hash mark is on the temperature gauge or where I could find some info on it?

Due to safety reasons, I really wont go into further detail about doing this type of restoration.

There is no bottom to reinstall.

I Get it  Lead (Pb), Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4), Stored electrical energy, (VOLTS & AMPS), Plastic Mess, Lead wire & terminals,

FYI, solo car is 01D (early January). I am going say that the heater hose bracket was likely phased out by may of 69 on A.I.R. Cars,  may be earlier,  if I can find some more examples from prior months.

Larry good point.

Gary good suggestions. Steves show would be a great one. As my kids get older it may be an option  :)

Kurt,
 could you please expand on this point?
 What method was used to keep the Tonawanda stamped blocks properly applied to the correct  LA built car?
Would this indicate that big blocks motors were not pulled from bulk racks ?
Thus all BB cars body's and motor numbers should be in numeric order, Correct?

I've done this a few times.  A few of "my batteries" are in certified Camaros & Novas.

Basically gutting them is the hardest and the most unsafe thing to do....once that's done, the rest is relative based on your mechanical skill level / determination.

I use Odessey batteries (PC 925) to place inside.

Due to safety reasons, I really wont go into further detail about doing this type of restoration.

Thanks Jim, you've come up with the goods again. At least I know with your car it's original, so there can be no doubt.
Regards Larry.
Original parts that have been fluffed;
Disclaimer: they should be natural (Bare steel) I Zinc Dichromate plated them in the 80's & GM replacement shifter cable

There are dozens of changes throughout the model year on 69 alone.   I still don't think there is sufficient data on a lot of it.  May never be as good examples dry up.  I'm sure they do the best they can with what they have to work with.

Austin:

1)  Yes, i am....  :)

2)  No one has sufficient data on that one tiny issue, not even we fellas who spend ALL our time on first gen Camaros!  (and many other such small details that are not known/documented.

3)  Suggestion:  Go to the Camaro Nationals (or Steve's judging event) and SEE the detail that is gone into, and compare that to the judging on any car model that is judged at an AACA event.  Better yet, attend these events and sign up as a JUDGE!  I think my point will be VERY clear once you've done that.
