The number is probably 50, which is the production sequence number.  Don't know about Lloyd's but my 1968 has the marking in the same area.  Mine is the number 22. This number also appears on the inside of the front valence panel and also on the back side of my spare tire.

Here is a photo of my firewall.....

His had BLACK and the PTB on the pass side but no sequence number on the firewall, it was  (80) on the top of the fuel tank and the top of the heater box.

Yes that was it. I thought it was a 50. All good info James.

Great shot of the factory PTB stamps. Although faint even when new, they do appear quite crisp and clear.
Why is the "P" a reverse stamp on the right side and upside down on the left side?  How did they do a reverse stamp? Upside down is very common. George

It looks like it is parallel to the frame in your more recent pics which is different then the AIM
Austin, You are referring to the 69 AIM, UPC N10, Sheet A2 shown below?

If so, it's not real clear to me how the heat riser goes on.  Do you have any other pages that show it better?


I took a close-up picture this morning of my car's heat riser.


A friend of mine has a 68 Camaro with a 327 that his Dad bought new in 1968.  He told me at least twice, before the Camaro Nationals, that I had it on backwards but I didn't take his advice.    When I added his advice plus the deduction, I decided to change it around.  Unless I have hard documentation to prove otherwise, I'm leaving it this way.



David, did you have any points deducted for the spark plug shields shown in your picture? Those (the screw on type) should be I thought on the left side and the brackets that the shields screw into were part of the engine so they should be painted orange. That is what I thought the AIM shows along with original cars and past discussions. Jon Mello had a picture of those brackets he took off his 67Z back in the day.

Dave I would think the judges are basing there judgements after looking at original cars with it positioned parallel to the frame? would be nice if Jerry M would weigh in on this....

I wasn't sure if mine were correct without the screws on the passenger side. I knew they were original, but I thought maybe the hex screws broke off at first glance,
thanks for that bit of info Chick !

not a great pic, but here is mine:

oh yea, don't mind that cable in the pic, the original owner was so worried about the motor mounts he had a cable installed on the passenger side as well as the factory recommended driver side. That motor isn't going anywhere....

Chick, THANKS!!!! 

I didn't get any deductions, but that was in the Bowtie class.  I'm positive they would catch that in the Legends class.  I've started making a list of all the things you've given me to research and fix.

Thanks for the pic Austin!  There are some good threads on the CRG with pictures that also show this.

The 1968 Z/28 Engine Compartment picture came from the September/October 1996 Camaro Enthusiast.

Contents Page
for page 36
"ENGINE COMPARTMENT DETAILING '67 - '69
Many Camaro engine compartments are the same after '69 as far as what is
painted what.  Most '70 - '74 were identical with few exceptions.  However this
article is dedicated to the 1st Generation Owners.  The photo is a 1968 Z28
engine compartment from Chevrolet.  We reproduced the photo full size so you
may see the details, and then put the arrows with numbers on the same picture."

The article is pages 36-39.  The previous picture is page 36.  Here's pages 37 - 39.

  I assume this is only for the Z-28? I only ask this because of alternator fan/pulley finish differences I have seen between 2-piece and 1-piece pulley/fans designs.
Interesting how they list silver cad several times. I wonder if they confused it with silver zinc plating. I believe John Z stated on another thread that cad was not used much during the 1st gen production because of the known inherited health risks.

Why is the "P" a reverse stamp on the right side and upside down on the left side?  How did they do a reverse stamp? Upside down is very common. George

Perhaps its an upside down, half-stamped "B".  Smiley
