1969 GTO - a few questions
Hi, I looked all over and dis not see this mentioned elsewhere, so.....
1. I have the order sheet from the Dealer and the the car was built in October 1968. The heads are 48, i assume all 48 heads are "D" port, right? The date code is H208. H is the 10th letter, so does that mean the heads are October 20, 1968? Seems odd that the heads would not predate the car since I would expect those would be an inventories sub-assembly.
2. The car is trim code 250 which is blue. Does anyone make a paint that would match interior trim colors. Also, the softer parts (Seats and door panels) are noticably a darker blue than the harder parts (console, dash and kick panels) which are brighter. Was that normal?
3. I have a popping sound that is present every 5 to ten seconds or so at idle (kinda sounds like a fart) and on deceleration sounds more like a 'pop' almost like a backfire. Probably not a question for here because it can be anything. I am chasing it down, but I figured since I was here.....
Torque (tork), n: 1. The tendency of a force to rotate the body to which it is applied. 2. See also: GTO
