The POP said 514214. You added an extra "2".

What's interesting is the transmission code (G) is for a 396/265 from a full size passenger car with a 2.29 axle! The Camaro L35 Turbo 400 code is a C. However, since they also built the full size cars at Van Nuys, this is probably your typical "not paying attention" POP mistake.

Kurt's going to want to add this to the database, so can you let us know who the selling dealer was?

Thanks

Thanks, and yes, it's an L35 (396/325), not an L34. I mis-typed! But remember, I am NEVER wrong! (Once I thought I was but I was mistaken.)

 ;D

The transmssion codes for the Turbo 400 were used to indicate what model car it was installed in. C would be a Turbo 400 installed in a 69 Chevelle or Camaro with an L35 engine. G is for a full size car with a 396/265 (and a 2.29:1 axle). There were others as well:

A - 396/325 or 396/265 in a full size passenger car
B - 427/390 in a full size passenger car
C - as above
D - 350/250 or 327/235 in a full size passenger car
E - 396/350 in a Chevelle, Nova or Camaro
etc...

Can you get a photo of the tag on the transmission to show the numbers stamped? It would be interesting to see if it is the correct "CC" transmission and the typo was on the POP.

I'll almost guarantee that it's the right trans. The clerk just had problems reading the writing on the broadcast sheet and misread the C as a G.

Would you happen to have a pic of the cowl tag? :)

Thanks!

Looks like the POP really does say 69C331 to me, but then my eyes are going bad.

Look at the difference between the JG code above it, and on the BR1001G code to the right.  The "G"s there look alot more rounded, and heavier on the open ends, than the one in they tranny code.

I'm pretty sure I have the tag, I remember that VIN number for some reason.

Tough call Mark...I wish I had a better pic to draw from. I'm having to bounce the image (a poor image at that) from the monitor onto a mirror. Here are a couple more but I don't think they help much. At any rate I think you are on track with the rounded G's. And...the thing-a-ma-gig on the G is missing. Just wish there was another C stamped on it somewhere to use as a comparison.

I got a response back from the owner & will be getting the trim tag pic sometime soon.  I also hope the quality of the pic improves. I'll post it as soon as it comes in.

I think Mark might be onto something. If you compare it "G" in question with the other "G's" on the TT, it's very different. The "leg" of the transmission "G" might just be a shadow. I blew it up a bit more and it does look like a "C".

Marty, there is software that can reverse an image. If you can get a clear shot of the tag and post it, I should be able to reverse the image. May or may not be helpful.

Okay, It's definitely a "C".

I compared this one to several other POP's I have and you'll note that all the "G" have a little "nub" on the horizontal line. The transmission stamping doesn't have that "nub" so it's a "C".

Ed, if you don't mind me asking...how did you manage to get the magnified shot at the bottom? It almost looks like you used and electron microscope. My digital must be very out dated. Excellent pic.

I scanned it in at 600DPI. My Lexmark 9500 network printer/scanner/fax/copy machine actually goes to 19K DPI (although I've never tried anything that big before).

Ouch...your scanner is reasonably priced but your Lexmark is mucho $$$. Although I guess you need the best to get the best.

Thanks.

My work paid for it, so I don't have to worry about it. The only problem with these stupid printers is the price of the ink! The ink is almost as much as buying a new printer!! But my work pays for that as well, so I guess I can't complain.
