Disc brakes were a manditory option with the Z28. Unless they have been changed to drums, it's not a Z. By left side, I assume you mean the cable comes into the car between the column and the fuse box?

Jacob:

Post the trim tag, is the car built in Norwood or Van Nuys?, late Norwood cars have "X codes" which help determine if it was a Z. If your car was built in LA maybe you can find the "built sheet" over the fuel tank, but you have to be careful when you try to take it out.

I would guess not. Like Dave said, disk brakes were mandatory on the Z. The majority of people wouldn't change from disk to drum. All 67-9 Z's had Muncie 4speeds. If the cable is coming out of the left side of the column (sitting in the car) then it wasn't a Muncie car. Can't think of any reason someone would change cable locations. Was the car originally a 4speed anyway? It might be something else. Post some numbers

He already posted his #'s. See https://www.camaros.net/forum/Forum6/HTML/000262.html
Early 69 Norwood car (2 tone too!).

Jacob,
I'm confused. On the other post you said it had disc brakes.
How many fuel lines does it have?
10 or 12 bolt?
Original engine?

Kurt, thank you, your right. I like the weird color combos. I wish I was old enough to see these on the showroom floor when they were new. Do you have any strange color combos in the CRG database of a Z or RS/SS or anything? Seems most of the stranger color combos are on the lesser performance oriented cars. There is a junkyard about 30 minutes away from me that has over 300 Chevelles and a handful or more of Camaros. Some of them had weird combinations. When the weather gets warmer I am going back for some numbers. Took them once but lost them. Now back to the original issue. Jacob, when you get a chance let us help. How many fuel lines, diameter? Originally a auto or std? Disk brakes? Bracket on the frame visible behind the drivers rear tire while standing at the tire? (for dual exhaust) 10 bolt or 12 bolt rear? Heater core outlets on firewall-next to box on firewall or out of the middle? Numbers off pad on engine underneath the alternator?

I found 2 69 z/28's that had z/28 on the trim tag, but they had drum brakes, whether or not they were changed over I dont know, but it was just an observation i thought i'd add in

well Kurt sorry to get you confused but I just assumed the car had discs because my uncle told me it was a Z28. But no it has drums,I might have to double check the speedo cable,the car is auto 3 speed on the floor.
The real big problem is I dont have an engine or trani and the diferential is not origanal.
here are the trim code and vin

ST-69-12437-NOR-104988-BDY
TR-72365 50 PNT

I'll make you a deal. You tell me how many fuel lines there are, and I'll tell you what the engine was. Hopefully they are the original lines.

Robby, Z28 on the tag?? That code doesn't appear on a 69 tag.

Got data on a 2 tone RS/SS396 and 2 SS350 cars. Yes, I'd be interested in those #'s in the junkyard. Thanks!

Single fuel line on an early production car means a 327 car, 2 bbl.
2 fuel lines was for a Quadrajet 4bbl car.

Thanks!

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Heres what I can make of your tag. No, it is not a Z28. It is a basic v8 sport coupe. It was built in norwood and was originaly dover white with midnight green interior standard vinyl. I was not able to tell what engine combo you had. Please check your cowl tag again to make sure you didn't leave anything out. Good luck!
