General Discussion / Reunite my freind with his '69 Z
« Last post by uscrichter on August 03, 2020, 04:50:39 PM »
 I had lunch with My friend Tom the other day who is a long time member of NCRS and owns a '78 Camaro he bought new along with a 64 and 65 Corvette and has got pretty excited when I told him about my high school car a '69 Z that I'm restoring and he said he will be selling his 64 Vette and really misses his '69Z that he had to sell when he was called into the reserves and would like to buy one just like it, then he told me he had the original dealer order form from Yarnall-Todd Chev. in Chicago, and I mentioned to  him that I would reach out to the members of CRG to see if any info. is available. The VIN # 124379N535066, it was a Hugger Orange Rally Sport Z-28 with black vinyl top, M21, Console, Head Rest Car , power steering and brakes, rear antenna, flat hood and chambered exhaust. any info. would be appreciated, Thanks!

Restoration / Re: hood insulation pad

It isn't installed yet, but this one came recommended.  I believe you have to buy through a vendor.  They can be found on their "About" webpage.  I had mine delivered/brought to a swap meet to avoid freight cost.

Garage Talk / Re: Is 1969 the 'best' year in the 20th Century?

I got my drivers license in 69. The high school parking lot looked like a muscle car cruise in. Big block chevys, fords and mopars with tri fives covered also. Before class burnouts were common and occasional open headers. 8 track players were the rage and if you did not have Cragers you wanted them.

Phat,
No argument 1969 was a tremendous year for performance cars. Every manufacturer had a home run, and even some real 'exotics'. ZL-1s, 440-6, Hemis, and Boss 429s. Same holds true on the carbs…'Dominators', Holley 3 barrels, Autoline Inlines, and 'Six Packs'. Mind blowing...

If ya overlook the negatives, yeah, as far as cars are concerned, 1969 was awesome !
If for no other reason, the 1st EVER Universal Holley Double Pumpers were finally introduce to the public,
List 4776 Universal 600 CFM through List 4781 Universal 850 CFM,
after Chevy had enjoyed a ~18 month exclusive to having them,
in the List 4295 585 (600) CFM 2nd Design 302 Crossram and List 4296 850 CFM ZL1 and 2nd Design L88
first developed by GM & Bill Howell & 'the team' in very late 1967 or very early 1968, imho.
Can you imagine...  you have the Double Pumper... and no one else does...  haven't even seen it...
wouldn't really see it or know it when they were right there in front of ya...
Supposedly so 'new', they even created a 'fitment problem' on the ZL-1 with the L88 Air Cleaner Base Plate.
Below May 1970 Hot Rod Ad mentions introduction on the Z-28 Camaro... a bit misleading,
as the list 4295's, the 1st ever Double Pumpers, were the 2nd Design for the GM # 3940077 'Induction Kit'
originaly released with the short lived 1st Design List 4210 Single Squirter Mechanical Secondary Holley Carburetors.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: My car's original Chevy information
« Last post by PHAT69AMX on August 03, 2020, 04:49:26 AM »
For $50 I think, the GM Heritage Center web site will produce and provide a document based on you VIN afaik.
A generic 100+ page PDF file for that year Camaro is available on the GM Heritage website for free.

Decoding/Numbers / Question on Master Brake Cylinder Codes
« Last post by gwp4 on August 03, 2020, 04:04:42 AM »
Hello First-Gen Camaro Experts -

I'm looking for a little help decoding the numbers on my master brake cylinder (mbc) which I thought was original to the car, but now I'm not so sure.  The car was manufactured/assembled at the Norwood, Ohio plant on May 14, 1968 and is a base model 327 3-spd Camaro with manual drum brakes all around.  I can make out a "D76" and "256" on the cylinder.  The casting number "5452310 Y" is clearly stamped on the cylinder.  I'm not sure what the D76 and 256 signify although I believe they might be the foundry pattern number and Julian date code.  I also think the correct application code should be "BS" for a 1968 drum brake master cylinder, but I can't make-out the stamp on the cylinder.  Perhaps 50 years has done some damage to the location.  Any help in determining whether the mcb is actually correct for the car and decoding the numbers would be greatly appreciated.  Many thanks.  gwp4
