Trunk Lid Identification
« on: June 28, 2014, 06:04:17 PM »
I decided to go ahead and create a new thread because I think this needs more research.  Here is what we have so far.


George's (NoYenko's) trunk lid on his 69 that is thought to be for a 67:

Here's an old thread on early 67 lids with pictures, apparently LOS and NOR were different:

Does the one you call "My 11-66 NOR 67 trunk lid" have a big hole on each side of the latch?

My late great NOS lid - whoever has it got a good one.

I will try to add a pic of my Nov. '69 L78 lid tomorrow, which might give an earlier window. I also can look at my 03C Pace Car, and the 01C X77 to see if there is a two-design lid here.

Pretty sure they were added later on when the spoiler was installed.  They are not clean stamped holes.  Unless that is how they are suppose to be but I wouldnt think so.

I am thinking this is what we are referring to tabs, I see them on the 67,68, & up to middle 69.  Vince thanks for the picture that's the lid I need. George

Are you sure it doesn't have the tabs?  I swear I think I can see an outline of one or two of them.  Also TA's were produced or went into production around Feb or March of 69.  So when would we see the transition of the lids?  


Lets see some Dec 68 or Jan & Feb 69 cars with original lids.

 Here are two pictures on my '67's from 04B (original paint) and 05B (in primer).
 Hope it helps sort out when changes in the stampings approximately occurred

John,

 I see the trunk lid striker plate is painted. I guess in '69, or sometime before, the process was changed to install it (and adjust likely) prior to paint?
My '67 is not painted.

Interesting to see the tabs & TA tabs.  The change from the tabs to no tabs with the tabs must have happened at a later date than I first thought.

67 was the only year that was plated.  68 & 9 were painted.

Great thread guys! So am I correct in assuming that 67, 68, and early 69 lids are supposed have the tabs?

All 67 & 68 had/have tabs but not all 69's have/had tabs. There was a change to no tabs just no sure when just yet. That's why I'd like to see more original lids.  My 07-69 & 11-69 do not have tabs but do have the TA holes.

Guys beside keeping track of the tabs we may also want to note the oval hole stamped in the lower center of the lid. I have not seen that on most original lids, but have seen that on most NOS lids. It may be related to the stamping plant. This NOS lid was stamped out at the "T" stamping plant. Noted by the upper arrow in this picture. Another piece to the puzzle. George

Darrell or George was the studs for the early 69 spoiler (Short one) and the later spoiler (longer one) in the same place on the lid?

Guys I have started a spreadsheet to help keep this info in order.  If you can give me your build date (on trim tag), Plant (NOR or LOS), stamping Plant Code (if readable if it isnt please note as such) & a pic that would be great.  Thanks, Darrell

Only ones I have seen have been the early LOS lids.  Do you know of or have any info of any lids with the oval center hole that came from NOR?

Lid on a 67 11B LOS, stamped T43 (the 3 almost looks like a 5) and does not have the oval hole in the center toward the front edge.  One hole to the right of latch plate and two to the left were drilled out when a PO added the spoiler.  FWIW this is a convertible and the LH quarter is stamped H43 2 and the right is H43 3.

I believe painted latches started with 68.  All 7s should be plated to the best of my memory.

Thanks,
Ok we still need more 03 & 04 69 cars (NOR & LOS) along with early 08-66 - 01-67  LOS
Darrell, can you clarify exactly what details/areas of the trunk lid you need for your spreadsheet?

OK. 04A Van Nuys build (NCRS shipper doc has production date of April 1, 1969), original paint under trunk lid. Sheetmetal date stamp T A 12. Photos tell the story. Interesting to note the original emblem holes in the lid where the spoiler sits, car is definitely a D80 and has one torsion rod thicker than the other.

Driver's side of trunk lid:


Passenger's side of trunk lid:


Lip detail (no tabs):


Emblem mounting and original (non-spoiler) emblem piercing:


Sheetmetal date code:


Front (leading edge) of spoiler mounting nut:


Rear (trailing edge) of spoiler mounting nut:

NOTE: spoiler is currently off the trunk lid during restoration, and was briefly removed in 1971 for the car to have it's drag-racing paint job applied, so no way to know if these nuts are original. However they do still have traces of dum-dum sealant around them.
Mike's (rszmjt's) picture shows captured washer on the nuts on his car.

Looks like someone made a mistake on the line...  The lower emblem holes do not show signs of nuts ever being on the paint..  First D80 car I have seen with the lower emblem holes punched..  Very cool..

Really? I guess I just assumed that all trunk lids were pierced at the time of manufacture ready for the standard (non-D80) emblem location, and additional holes were punched at the factory if the car had D80..... well that's something else I've learned!

Found the following thread which may explain the 2 sets of emblem holes:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3752.0
I haven't read right through it yet, but that is probably where I got the idea that (at least some) deck lids came pre-pierced in the std emblem location.

No I remember that thread now..  I forgot there were some cars that had both holes early on.  I need to add that info to the spreadsheet. Thanks for that and sorry for the memory loss..

Need to correct what I posted above, seems the emblem holes were drilled through a fixture, rather than punched.

John stated there was only one deck lid supplied to the plants... that is until the Firebirds started being phased into Norwood from Lordstown with Trans Am spoilers not covering the lower emblem hole sets- all these had influence on the phase out of pre-punched deck lids.

Pic is not that good and I can not verify for sure that this is original.  But it is on my 09C 68 Camaro.

Thanks Bryon.  I assume it has the tabs under the lip?  Can you make out the stamp code also?

Darrell, I can't remember on the tabs and that is the only pic I have right now.  

I looked for the date code, but could not see one. There is quite a bit of paint on it, so I will need to look closer next time. It's still in winter storage.

This is a picture from an 03E NOR X77 survivor, GM of Canada-documented car that has a production date of April 7, 1969; I noted it because the rear spoiler nuts are of the acorn style:

Gary, unfortunately up here I can only enjoy the car from about April to September.  

But it was 88 degrees here yesterday.   :)

If you run across any Rally Green 69 Novas down your way, let me know.  Would prefer it to be a big block car, but any V8 in that color would be fine.

OK, I have a few more pics.  Can't guarantee exactly what these were from originally, but will make an attempt.

First, I think this is from a 68 Frost Green big block. Wrecked in the 70s.  Date stamped in center at normal location is T23.

Second set.  I think this is from a 69. Might have been original black paint. Now mostly in primer.

Date stamped in center at normal location is 16.

That second set of pics is the exactly the types of lids I need.  Lids with the T/A holes and the tabs vs lids without the tabs and T/A holes. Right now it looks like the Feb - Mar time frame of 69 when this change occurred..

Thats strange.  That would put it in the April - May timeframe and none of the lids I have have the tabs & T/A holes..  Hmmmm

Here is another one, this is an 04C survivor X77 that was posted for sale (IIRC) a few years ago by Stefano over at sYc. The third picture shows the trunk lid date stamp, not so easy to make out last digit but it's definitely T A1x, so has to be week 10 or later - up to 3rd week of April, week 16 or thereabouts.

Darrell,  Hope I can help and add to your data.  Here's the original trunk lid to 03B Nor Z.  Has no tabs.  Also, was there a particular location where GM date stamped these lids ?  I looked all around and couldn't find anything   ???  The lid was repainted to white back in the 70's,  so maybe it's hidden underneath somewhere.

You can see the date stamp in my 3rd picture above, to the right of the jack instruction label. There is often another stamp in the center, below the jack label, but it's often fainter (less defined) like the one visible in that same photo.

Update to my 03B Z.   I was easily able to find the date stamp near where some white paint was beginning to peeling.  The original Dusk blue can be seen underneath the white which also assures me this is the original lid as well.

Dated:  T A 10  (10th week of the Calendar year, first week of March)

can't find the date code, un-touched underneath so I'm not sanding.(you understand) Latches/bolts shot. Car's 68. 04D Norwood ,non-spoiler. See anything that helps your quest?

It's probably under the jacking instructions.

maybe 1 9 left to right honestly can not make it out for sure.

I still haven't got the body shop pics when it was stripped ,anything he found he recorded. I did not want under the deck lid touched so it may forever be a mystery. Of course could probably make a pretty educated guess.

I'm assuming hole above date code was for Ziebart?? Looks punched, not drilled.
