Restoration / Reproduction 69 Endura bumpers available?
« Last post by 69Z28-RS on May 25, 2017, 08:15:26 PM »
Just got an email from Heartbeat City Camaro announcing and praising their 'new' repro endura bumper for 1969 Camaros.    James says of this new part...  "We just received the new 1969 Camaro Endura Bumpers which are one of the nicest reproductions or any part we have ever seen. They are exact reproductions in every regard of thse original GM bumper. "

It seems to be packaged well with all necessary parts including bumper brackets and jack jaw even!

Priced at $699, doesn't seem too bad...  but it doesn't qualify for their discounts..  but gets their shipping charge, plus 1.25% for shipping insurance, and an extra $25 for 'oversize'... 

If anyone has purchased, or purchases, one of these it would be interesting to all us '69 owners as to the total cost shipped, and the quality of the part (and how close to original it really is)..   if the part is as good as he claims, then it might be a good deal in spite of the cost based on the number of issues with the original parts out there....?

What do you fellas think?

Is there anyone who can verify this head bolt marking?
Thanks, Terry

Good to know. Most components have a bigger window.
That is spot on with my red 69. I think the mirror is dated 1 month prior.
Thanks Ed

Yes, an October date, but these things were made by the gazillions, so only a little before your build date. In reality, it should be dated 10-DMI-8 to be most correct. 9-DMI-8 would be okay, but anything before that would be really stretching it.

I see it has the clock, gauges, no a/c, 713 seats, what can you tell about this car from the trim tag?

Well, the owner doesn't know what he has because he says it's "an early Norwood build before they were X coded", when it's actually a Los Angeles built car! It's probably not a Z28 because the tachometer has the wrong red line. This one looks to be 5500, which would have been used on a big block (which it isn't), but variations in tachometer red lines versus engine have been observed, so it may be an L48 since they've been seen with 5.5k red lines. Especially if the 12 bolt axle is original to the car. I don't think there are any Z28's in the database with the 5.5k tach though.

If you're interested in the car, you need to get the numbers on the axle and the transmission and post them here. You'll also need to get the VIN.
