    The nipples coming out through the firewall rules out a BB car. Since your VIN is so early, the 10D means the fourth week of October '68, but you already knew that. 711 means it had a black standard interior originally. The dual exhaust bracket came on any car that was factory ordered with dual exhaust, so it couldn've had any V8 in it. As early as your car is, odds are it had a 327 originally unless it is a possible SS350 or LM1 car, which would have been a 350/255HP car (unless you find the X3 or X7 behind the rear seat). It's a long shot, but drop the gas tank and see if the broadcast sheet is lying on top of it. That will tell you exacly what it had originally, but they are rare to find on Norwood cars.

    hi , was talking bout sway bar but will have to ask eric what size the bar was . nipples come out firewall like a normall sm blk car. will check out crossmem. this weeknd, my emblems dont code out to a 69 , and book dont give 68 #. 33,345 car built oct 68 so thought maybe they used leftover 68 badges? also will check behind seat . took off badges for a long time cause didnt have x33, will change to ss , or just normal bowtie badge if can ever figure out. heres my tag st 69 12437 nor167764 tr 711 57 57 10d . know should be fathom green but always been black. scoured every inch of old grille looking for part # hoping it was argent but # must have been on section that was all busted up. last question does the dual ex. brkt mean at the least a 350 ss, or could say a 307 car have that.? know it was a v8 car but also no fac. tach or console that i can tell. s/n is 124379n5333345 title just says spt. coupe. thanx bmayor

    The factory sway bar on the Zs were 11/16", some of the COPO cars got the 13/16". Since you are saying you traded a 1" bar for a 1 1/8" bar, I assume you are talking about the drag link between the tie rods. Those were 1 1/8" on the Zs, along with a lot of other cars. Look at your crossmember from the bottom. Is the hole to access the trans mount bolts oval or square with an angled corner? The Zs should have an oval hole. The BB 4 speed crossmembers are the square one. Do the heater core nipples stick out of the core cover in the engine bay? On the BB cars, they come out through the core cover. All the other cars they come out through the firewall right next to the core cover. Keep in mind that over 40 years a lot of things can be changed on a car (not to discourage you). Also, yes, in 82 it was pretty common to see cars with the Z/28 badges even if they weren't originally Zs. Hopefully this helps. If you've got anymore questions, just holler!

    Z/28s are the only car that came with 4 leaf rear springs. The rest were either monoleafs or 5 leaf. If you have an early Nor. trim tag, there is nothing that will tell you what the car originally was except what interior/exterior it had and which month/week the car was built (do you have a picture of the tag?). Pop the rear seat back out of the car and look at the bulkhead between the seat and trunk. See if you can find a chalk mark there. If it was a Z, it should have an X3 or X7 there. As for the the 9204 booster, all the cars that came with power brakes had that booster, so that isn't much help. I'd have to look up the coil count, but there were two different springs used on the hood hinges. The flat hoods and "cowl induction" hoods had 26 coils and the SS hoods had 28 due to them being heavier.

    if it is improper to ask u a question here feel free to tell me. read one of your post replies stating only zs came w/ 4 leaf rear. have jerry mc. camaro book and have been trying for yrs to decode my early nor trim. bk says its impossible from early tag. have always thought z but a few things bug me like 28 springs on hood and 5 rear leaf. do have frt power brks w/9204 boos.,dual ex. brkt.,speedo comes out at say 5 oclock on tunnel. ex drag car so all goodies gone. 4-sp car and local camaro guru talks about notch on crossmember makes him say bb ss car. had 1 inch sway bar he traded me out of for a copo hes doing (did finally get 1and eighthbar this yr) car had all z badges in 82 when got it and didnt think anybody cared to fake one back then.sounding like i was wrong , any help is very very appreciated kmejr.
