Chick, I'm not sure if anyone else here has asked you to do this yet but please give a big THANK YOU! to your friend (the new lucky owner) for his support in allowing you to share this unbelievable find with us here on CRG. Very excited to see more picture and details as your time allows.
Have a good day!

Chick,
He finally got it! Good for him and a nice one at that. Can you answer me the following three questions or I can notify him personally and view the car if need be.
1. Are the door strikers allen head or torx
2. Does it have the higher RPM Tach or standard 6-8 Tach
3. The exhaust bracket on the left frame rail. Does it have the two knotches "one on the top and one on the bottom" or does it go straight across. Thanxs Dave

Yup, as stated above, #1 and #2 owner also kept everything they took off the Z. When #1 got in touch with me about 6 years ago, he had JUST gotten rid of the pollution control set up, which had been up in his parent's garage from around May/June 68.He actually apologized ,but his intentions were to buy the car back, so he was being nice.

You can safely deduce : Why would someone keep old tires and a battery while getting rid of a hood Huh

I hate to admit, but shy of the shocks and battery ,the few items missing for this one has been my own fault over the years due to moves, storage when building the house ,parts "intermingling" etc..and how many really gave much thought to keeping old hoses, belts ,plugs etc...at the time I got it, was not even considered a classic. LOL.

IMO this HO 69 should define survivor--beautiful, well cared for, un-molested. No state of disrepair what so ever. I wouldn't even take a hose to the body--hand wash ,Simple green to the engine...period.

Even though my car (and some may gasp ) retained over 90 % of it's original paint ,presented well--- you can argue it should not have been touched ,I thought it needed it, my bar's set high and I own it.

Stunning is that 69,many an article should be written about it.

Not sure Dave on your question 1 & 3 but the tach was the std. 6-8 version. Will check out the other stuff when we go over the car some more which will be a little while since Carlisle is here.

OK, I promised some engine pics so here you go!


Silver looking paint on lift hook and manifold bolts appear to be phosphate (show no signs of clear zinc)





A-arm shaft and washer have remnants of black paint.



Bellhousing is partially painted orange.

Yes it does as we looked for that when we had the air cleaner off.

Chick, I noticed that this car had the left side motor restraint cable assembly installed. You see them on some cars, but not all...I guess these were some of the first things to be removed when they got in the way.

Eddie I believe that was a major recall in 1971 and some remained and many were taken off. Some maybe were taken off due to having mount changes also. Hard to believe back then the recall ID Number 7IV235000 impacted over 6 and a half million cars.

Awesome! May have missed it, but does this late-build car have the carb stud fuel line clip/bracket?

Tim, I'm fairly certain it did not as I have no recollection of seeing it and would think I would have noticed if it was there but will need to look next time just to make sure 100%.

I looked at the two on the left side of the car Mike and they both were the serrated finger type.
