Great pics Dave of the original ZL-2 hoods.

JST it is more likely your hood is an over the counter GM unit. I have looked over many original unrestored cars, and I have observed the assembly line hoods to have the date. As mentioned some of them had paint in that area so it is hard to see it. The hood was very popular and MANY guys went to the parts counter and ordered the hood to add to their 1st gen Camaro, whether is was a 67,68, or 69, and it didn't matter if it was a Z, SS, or base car. It is somewhat rare to see a 1st gen let alone a 69Z without the ZL-2 hood now a days. You car though, you can keep the X33 trim and the ZL-2 hood or make the switch back to X77 and locate a flat hood to spray up for your car, and swap them at will, then hang the other in your shop. Congrats on the 69Z. 🙂

Jim, I wasn't in the market to replace the insulation so I can't speak to what's available beyond the well known Dynamat / Hushmat type products.

Looks like the same material used on the upper seat back, of a rear fold-down seat.  I could not find anything similar a few years ago.

I spoke with the guy who owned my car from 1976 to 1978 today and he confirmed he did add the cowl hood, wheel well chrome trim, and louvers.  Thanks to all, the info you provided was exceptional and completely accurate.

That is cool you have a contact that had the car back then. Was he able to provide who he bought the car from? or did he have any of the paperwork. Keep tracking it down as much you can you never what will turn up. 🙂

I bought the car from a friend in Tampa in 1982, and at the time I had another friend who worked at GMAC and was able to get me all of the Florida title history.  I did nothing with the docs until recently.  My friend owned it from 1978-1982, and I searched the name of the 1976-1978 owner (he still lives in FL in the St. Pete area) from one of the titles and actually found a phone number for him.  Was he surprised when he got a call 44 years later, but we had a great conversation and he remembered a lot about the car.  My car does not have the original DZ engine block, and he told me he was the one who replaced it but said he did use the internal parts from the 302.  I am starting a 2nd restoration (first was in 1982, but I had 3 young kids and not much money back then) and am keeping him updated on progress.  The car came to Florida from Connecticut in 1974, and I am still trying to contact the lady who owned it then.  CT DMV has been no help, so I'm trying anywhere else I can.  I got my NCRS letter recently, and found the car was originally delivered to Louisiana.  I called the Chevy dealer, who is still in business in the same location (since 1931), and actually spoke with the owner who started working for his dad there in 1970.  Again we had a great call, I sent him some photos, but he has no records that old.  So far a fun search, and I'll continue until I complete the timeline.
