Are these original 1969 tie rod sleeves?
« on: January 15, 2008, 02:14:28 AM »
Can anyone let me know, or better yet, show pictures of their original/survivor tie rod sleeves, and let me know the build date of your car?  I am curious to know if there were several styles used during the 69 model year.

These pictures are those that were on my Norwood built 1969Z, during the first week of May (05A), VIN N638712.  My car was taken apart by a previous owner during a cosmetic restoration so I can not be sure these are the originals; however, the appeared to be.

Thanks,

I believe that those are original.
I just compared then to my original sleeves from my 1969 Z/28 that I am restoring and they look identical. It is a LA April Z for the record. I also have a pair of reproduction sleeves and they are really close but I did find one difference which leads me to believe your is an original sleeve.
