LM1 Convertible
« on: June 23, 2008, 01:06:22 PM »
I recently purchased a '69 Camaro RS convertible.  I checked the engine code and determined that it is an LM1.  The engine suffix is HS and the car has a TH350 tranny.  Is there a registry for LM1's on CRG?

Thanks,
Northstar

CRG doesn't have registries. Instead we (I) maintain the database of first gens. We have about 100 LM1's in it, IIRC. You can send the data to me or post it here.
Thanks!

I have also just purchased a LM1 convertible, but the original manifold and carb have been replaced with an aftermarket set. I have found the correct carb numbers. Can anyone here tell me what the correct casting number and dates that would have been used for the intake manifold? It has a 12B date on the cowl tag and it is a HS block. Thanks, Terry

Hi Mike, thank you for the response. Great minds must think alike, but unfortunately that is the site where I got the link to this site. Thank you again, Terry

It's great to see a site dedicated to the 1969 LM1 Camaro.

I take you saw http://www.camaros.org/lm1.shtml?

The intake would have been 184 (last 3 digits, same as SS350).

Thanks Kurt, I did see that discussion. I'm pretty new at this and I understand the manifolds were the same as the SS350, but I didn't know the number of that either. I have found a 3927184 with a date of Oct 7,68. Can I assume that this is correct for my 12B car? Thanks, Terry
