Here is a comparison of the Ebay Pace car rear axle stamp and mine on my LA Pacer.

They look pretty identical. My pic is the second one.

My car is a 04B and his is a 04C build date but they are very close in unit production numbers.

12 Bolts but they don't have to be posi's.
I have (1) Pace Car now with the build sheet (BL rear) and just sold one a few months ago with a Protecto Plate and a (BL rear.)

Nope. True in 67 and 68, but in 69, SS350 cars with powerglides had 10 bolts. Pretty uncommon beast, but they exist.

Okay so now I'm more confused. I was asking if there were 12 bolt rears on 69 z-11's that are not posi units? Or were all 12 rears positraction ?

Sorry.
So there's two parts - did all SS's have 12 bolts - no.
Did all SS's (or Z11's) have posi's - no. Posi was only required for 4.10 or deeper gears.

William pointed out that in 69, posi was required for 3.73 or 4.10 (Z was allowed a 3.73 open). I dug and it was only 67-68 that required posi with 4.10.

Okay so I guess I do really need to get underneath and try to read the stamping on the axle to know for sure if I have a posi or not. Thanks Kurt for the information.

Kurt, 

I have a Z11 with powerglide and 10-bolt (PG) rear axle.  I believe you have some documented SS with powerglide, but as far as Z11, have you had any documented powerglide cars besides mine?

Do you have the VIN of that pace car?  I am wondering how close it is to mine.  I found another pace car that was owned by a guy I met at a show in Orlando, and he had a column shift pace car, that had a TH350 in it, but he said it had a PG when he got it.  His vin was near mine.  If this is a pattern, I wonder if maybe GM ran out of 12 bolts for a couple of days during this time frame.  Just a thought.
