Parts found from the Original owner of my 1969 Z/28
« on: April 22, 2014, 07:59:29 PM »
I bought my Z back in 2008, and then sadly soon after the original owner past away. I have formed a good relationship with the son of the original owner, who along with his mom (original owners wife), has provided a lot of great stories about the car and its owner.

Well I got a cryptic email last week from the son, who said he found some original GM boxes with some familiar handwriting (his dads familiar script). So I was super excited except I didn't know what to expect. Well I started getting some pics this week, and although this isn't like finding a JL8 car or something, to find these parts is like Christmas for me. To get the parts along with a note from the original owner, is like a gift from beyond the grave!

more pics to follow...

Now this bracket was purchased from the dealer since the "original?" was scuffed. (Owner included a note with it so he would remember where it went).

Nice to find those! Like you said, may not be rare parts, but valuable to your car (and you) because of the history and origin.
On that printed tag, could the '1-79' top right be the date of the tag? (Jan 1979)
Still doesn't confirm date the part was produced or sold.....

Well under date it says: 03222. Anybody have any ideas?
Or anybody have an original license frame bracket that can confirm on the "C" stamp?

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=10725.0 All you ever wanted to know about front license bracket, but were afraid to ask. Nothing on package date, at least , I don't think there is, but plenty about stamped letters and ID of original Bullitt65.

The seal number comes back as a 70 Chevelle cowl seal http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=86260 (air cleaner to cowl hood seal, same as Camaro), I bet the date is March 22, 1972.  Looks like an old label.

That is the correct front tag holder for a 69 Camaro with the "C" stamping. The AAC stamping is also another marking but mostly seen on the 67 68 Front Tag Holder. It seems to appear later in the 69 production year again.

Since that tag was updated/printed in '79, that date is likely 03/22/1982....

As someone else pointed out, there is a date on the printed tag of 1/79 in the upper right corner.

ok, sorry I missed that by ZLP. Now would that be a packing sticker? does the GM sticker on the box tell anything about the date?

Todays finds: The 1969 Camaro reference book, a nice find especially for me because of different notes the owner wrote down on pieces of paper and marked different pages with them. Again not a COPO find , but more notes from beyond the grave about a nice original car and paints a picture of how much pride he had in his 69 Z.
