1969 Camaro Z 28

Does the backup light wiring on the 1969 V-8 4-speed Camaros come through the firewall in the same location as the 1967 and 1968 V-8 4-speed Camaros? bill

Re: 1969 Camaro Z 28

The neutral safety switch and back up lights are controlled through the back drive linkage from the shifter ears on the transmission to the steering column. That back drive linkage is usually removed over the years when headers are put on the car.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: 1969 Camaro Z 28

Thanks for the quick answers. I have a friend who has what is supposed to be a real 1969 Z/28. I thought all 69 Z/28's had X33 or X77 on the trim tag. I asked why his did not have that code and he said that some of the real early 69 Z/28's did not have that code. Is that right? bill

Only Norwood cars got X codes and you are correct some early one did not get the code at all.

Hey gents, I also had that concern about my 69 Z28. Turns out its true. I have an early 69 that shares numerous late 68 options. The trim tag does not have the Z28 and it's verified original. Wish I had the matching block though.

Right. The X codes didnt show up on Norwood built cars until the second week of Dec. '68 (12B date code on the trim tag). If the car was built before that, or was built at the Van Nuys plant (L in the VIN instead of a N), it won't have an X code. Another thing to make sure is the 3rd digit of the VIN is a 4 (V8 car), not a 3 (I6 car). A 4 won't verify a Z/28, but a 3 will definitely disqualify the car as a Z/28.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

Re: 1969 Camaro Z 28

With no X code, original motor or paperwork, to most it is just a Camaro with Z emblems

Re: 1969 Camaro Z 28

Back in the early 70's, every Camaro in my town, except BB's morphed into a Z. Even I6's. Must have been a hundred of them.
