Steering Column with a few markings that I assume are dates.  There's an "9 A 066".  Would the "9 A" be year and month (Jan '69) ? and what about the "066".  There's also a number "46" stamped near the base.

I'm also guessing this is dated as "9B21"  (Feb 21 '69).  Sems washer bolts with star washers

Tail Light Housings still in great shape with mounting tabs intact.  Will just need some TLC to the insides with new paint.

Reference to my 03B build.  Here's all 4 of my YH dated Ralley Rims.  1 is dated 92 26 ('69 Feb 26) and 3 are dated 92 27 ('69 Feb 27).  No spare...bummer ! Oh well I guess 4 are better than none.

Could these possibly be factory Speaker Coves ?  They're made of metal and have the same speaker shape images on the underside of them.  If they are, does anyone know what the factory color should of been ?

They sure look like factory. Probably the same color as the rear package try cover...or maybe black??

Did originals have the through holes for the screws (like the ones Darrell pictured) or were there studs?

I think the holes are correct with screws, not absolutey sure. They are factory correct covers. Two would indicate stereo, I believe. If only one, it would be U69 RH side only.

Agreed. My Judge had the same speaker covers which had screw holes and the covers were black. Can't remember if the screws where chrome or not though.

A little history update.

I just had the pleasure of speaking with the original owner of my Z/28, Jack Levy.  Jack who is now retired and lives in Tucson Arizona with his wife.  Jack bought this Z/28 brand new as a graduating gift to himself out of high school in Manhattan.  Jack then enlisted into the Army and was stationed in Fort Knox, Ky.  He purchased the Z with power steering for the sole purpose of running the car in Motocross races and p.s. was much needed.  He'd run it in Louiville Ky and across the river in Cincinnati Ohio.   Said he won a few 1st places but mostly all 2nd places only because there was another fella that was running a 302 boss, and that guy had more money than brains..lol   As he was blowing up a motor monthly.  Jack said if he ran the Z to 6500 rpm's the other guy ran his Boss to 7000 and if Jack ran it 7500 the guy ran his Boss to 8000.  Jack said it was the only car he and his wife had.  So it was a daily driver off the track

In the end, after the Military Jack and his wife had moved to Denver then Tampa.  With one child, the 2nd on the way and no job Jack needed a car that was better on fuel than his 8 mpg Z.  In 1974 Jack traded it in on a 4 door, 4 cylinder Honda for what was a great deal at the time.... a whopping $740.00 trade in value

It was only a few years ago that Jack said he threw away the original window sticker and Bill Of Sale from '69.  Now how cool would that of been to have landed those 2 pieces.

We are going to stay in contact, he was thrilled to hear that the car was still around.  I'm to send him pics of it now and as the restoration moves along.  Jack would like to see it on day as he comes to the Florida area once in awhile.  I'm hoping one day to get a picture of the Z with the original owner and me.

Jack said when he gets back home in about a month (travels a lot being retired) he's going to see if he can dig up more pics of the car when he owned it.

Thought I'd share that little update to the history.

It's great that you were able to talk with your car's original owner.  Hopefully he will be able to send you some of his old pics of it.  I was able to talk with the original owner of my '69 Z and get some history on it.  He sent me some photos of it when he had only had it 2 months.  I and a lot of others I'm sure enjoy finding out as much as possible about our car's early life.

Man that's great Darrell. Between all of the original parts and history that you have and are continuing to gather for your car, it just keeps getting better and better.

Is this the Vacuum Advance tube/hose to carb line ?  Still sorting and was among some of the parts.
