Do a search.  Kurt has collected a fairly large data base with this information available to us in the email...   maybe search on hood date code?

Where is this hood code located?
Does the CRG database have any production numbers of 69 Z's with factory ZL2 hoods?

Nope, only the 10,026 that the production records indicate was made over the entire run.  Take away 3675 for the Z11's, another 400 0r 500 for the Z10, and 1000 for the COPOs where the hoods were mandatory options and that leaves roughly 5000 for all of the remaining SS's and Z28's ordered after the beginning of December 1968 that could have ordered the hoods as an option.

TX-302,
from what has been reported previously, all 'factory original' ZL-2 hoods had a 'date code' stamped on the rear drivers corner of the hood, on the side at the back.  See attached photo of my original hood with '25' stamped.  Note that the stamp in my case is 'upside down'.  I'm totally unsure if they are all like that or not, since I only have the one.   The 25 represents the week of the year, so 25 would be sometime during July of 1969 (since '69 is the only year factory cowl hoods were used).  My car is an 09C production with a 27August engine and most parts being produced in August 1969.

Supposedly, repro hoods and even post-69 model year 'OTC' hoods were not so stamped?

Mark wrote - speaking of ZL2 factory hoods:   
"...were mandatory options and that leaves roughly 5000 for all of the remaining SS's and Z28's that could have ordered the hoods as an option."

Mark, since the SS Camaros had a special hood, Was the ZL-2 even an option for SS's??  I didnt' think it was... but I don't have an original option book...

Yes, it was available on SS's and Z28's as an option, had to be ordered though it never came as part of the ss or Z28 package.  The SS and the Z28 were the only cars it was available on, outside of the COPOs.

OK .. thanks Mark.   Of course I recall seeing them on Z11, but don't recall ever seeing a *regular SS* with a cowl hood..  but then there weren't a lot of Z28's with the cowl hoods either, back in the day.. Smiley

Here is my SS350 factory ZL-2. Probably very few made.

I don't think the COPO hoods would count in that RPO total, since it was part of the package.

Does your car have a '270' ignition coil? Beautiful car, BTW!

Is there a 'code' stamped somewhere on the air cleaner?  First I've heard of that.. or are you referring to a 'paper sticker/label'??
