Hello CRG Members,

Just seeing if someone could post some correct engine bay pictures for a 69 Z28. I have Jerry's book,but seeing if someone had some really good detailed pictures of their own or maybe from a car show.

Thanks,

Top pic has the diverter valve muffler welded to the body.
The bottom pic has the wiring harness tied to the heater hoses.

Thanks David!

The photos show some interesting differences. #1 has a strap on the alternator bracket to retain the heater hoses. #2 has a ty-wrap. The air cleaner mesh and diverter valves differ. #1 doesn't have a 302 decal on the lid. Both have top terminal reverse-polarity batteries.

#1 was a very early production car. Hot Rod, Sports Car Graphic and Popular Hot Rodding used it for testing. Hot Rod kept it and did some mods featured in the May' 69 issue along with a few good photos. With 5.38 gears it went 12.73/110.

#2 was probably built Feb-March as it was featured in August mags. JL8 with a yellow interior. Car Life had a cross-ram installed.

Kurt & William,  

You guys are amazing.  There are so many details that I end up missing!!!  I am hoping that when I get my 69Z finished that you guys can help me make corrections.

I saw a really nice 69Z at the 2012 Camaro Nationals.  It was it's third and final year there.  I can spot obvious issues like the incorrect "red top" R-59 instead of the "yellow top" Y-55 and that the air cleaner is an obvious reproduction, but I am probably missing a dozen other restoration issues.

Here is a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV-57Bzyz3k

And three pictures:

JohnZ also has a great '69Z and the car is very original. Should try to get him to post some pics of his engine bay.

DavidS, Looks like the right rear spark plug shield may be a repro. As it has no notch in it. JohnZ and the guys can be sure. Hey John, why isn't your hood hinges and spring assemblies gray phos??.... Danny

Thanks Danny!

I met the owner of the 69 Z at the Camaro Nationals and he was a super nice guy.  He answered loads of my questions.  I really fell in love with his Z/28 and I am trying to make my car like his.  I'm using his car as a model for my restoration.

Great pictures John.  Thanks for posting them!  Between the magazine pictures, your pictures, and pictures at the Camaro Nationals I should be able to get my Z looking as it should.

The rocker cover to air cleaner hose is not correct. Should be a 3/4" to 1" 90 elbow.

My hood hinges are 100% original, and have never been touched; they weren't "gray" to begin with - they were dark phosphate. "Gray" hinges have been restored (incorrectly).

WOW, talk about learning something important. I wonder who started that trend and when.  Just like the coil bracket I bought off ebay cause it had a notch in it. You straightened me out on that and many other things. Well thanx as always.....  Danny

For #2, I just got the August 1969 Car Life.  Here's the engine pics with the cross-ram.  From the article, it appears they were very disappointed with the cross-ram.

and here's another pic of #1 from Hot Rod, January 1969:



William, By any chance have you ever seen a DZ 302 in a color picture, in a 1969 or a 1970 magazine?
