1969 Camaro Z28 with options
« on: November 14, 2022, 08:06:36 PM »
Hi CRG Members.

I am new here. My Name is Andy and i am restoring a original 1969 Camaro Z28 matching numbers Car. So the thing is that we do not have any documents from the car. We bought the car in a box. We checked everything to see what we have. So i found the power windows, fold down rear seat, endura bumper, do not know if that was factory stock or not??? Thanks

The endura bumper was option code VE3 and 12,650 cars were equipped with that option (more if it was pulled by another option package/number).  So, it could have been stock on a 1969 Camaro.  Whether it was on yours is a different question.  I'd be interested to know what "bought the car in a box" means and, if it's literal, how you could be so sure of the Z28 lineage without any documents.  Note, that's not a charge against you and I'm not lodging doubts at you ... I am interested in learning more about your car, it's provenance, and your investigation.

Didnt the endura bumper have 2 different brackets than the chrome one?  Might be a clue if it came with one

Well, The last owner took the whole car apart 30 years ago and put everything in boxes and stored the car in a container. That means we bought the car in Boxes or we bought a body with parts:-)
There is the 386 Engine block with the 3.000 stroke crank, pistons, valves Partial vin stamped on it that matches all vin numbers on the body. There is the Muncie m21 stamped with the partial vin. including the hurst comp. shifter with the chrom knob. 186 heads with 2.02/1.60 valves, Intake manifold with the correct GM number on it, Distributor with correct GM number, Alternator with the correct Number on it. Waterpump and so on. There is the tilt steering column with the wood steering wheel, The original houndstooth seat covers never been restored. Please let me know what you need to figure out if it is a real Z28 Car and how it came from the factory. i think alot of people out there mean they have a real Z car so i understand that it sounds to good to be true!! I think you guys know more about the Z28 than i do.

Thanks

Yes, you're correct. A lot of fake cars out there so it's always best to verify before purchasing.

To validate what you have, post a good picture of the VIN, the trim tag, the engine pad stamp, the transmission stamp and the rear axle stamp. Also, post pictures of the distributor stamp, the alternator stamp, etc... Basically, anything with a stamping!!

And welcome to the forum!

Looks good. The only issue so far is the alternator. That's a 1969 Cadillac application. No big deal unless you're going for "show" or being judged. The correct 1100837 alternators are HUGE money!!

Post more pictures! I want to see how naked the carcass is!!

(And post a picture of the axle code too)

Please let me know what you need to figure out if it is a real Z28 Car and how it came from the factory.
You contacted me back in August and I already confirmed it is a Z28.

From yesterday's PM:
>The only thing i know is that the first registration was in 1969 in Switzerland. But i guess Z28 were build in the U.S. Would be great if you can help us to find some history from this Z28. Like factory RPO`s, build sheet, protecto plates.

It was exported by an individual, probably someone in the military. It was not exported by GM.

I know i asked you in August @KurtS. I try to figure out how the car came from the factory and maybe how rare or how many with this options were build.
