If Chevy has the Courage to build it. This it will be best thing from GM since 1974. Ten bucks says they don't.

OH, Yes most likely a 69 difference. Mine were black also, I did not see your pic come up other times I viewed. Thanks

Thats Funny, On top of a wrong claim He is asking 750.00 for the sway bar. Sad thing is someone might believe and buy. Thanks for Info

Bracket to fender well. If I remember right all six screws are the same size, and so are the six rubber caps.

Thanks. OK Then was the 1 inch bar a dealer option. This car has been parked since before 1991, the sway bar mounts on subframe appear to be as aged as anything else. And the sway bar has been on long enough to develop over a quarter inch slop in its rubber cradles on subframe. Right now a guy is offering a 1 inch bar on ebay claiming its a Z/28 offroad swaybar. The thing should be plated in gold for what he is asking.

Two questions. Front one inch factory sway bar ground off at ends appears to be done to clear upper ball joint nut, was this done at factory or by someone over time. Ads in Classic catalog show copies of originals that look like they have the ground off ends also.  Also I have a two piece power steering pump bracket the second piece bolts between the engine block and the motor mount, is this correct I am hearing conflicting answers. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thanks

Assuming someone is a Democrat is not a political comment, and people talking up foriegn trash on a site like this should darn well expect a little negative reaction. If someone wants to expound on the virtues of a Honda they should go to a web site that caters to that kind of person. I for one believe in buying American product. I live in America. And if that is considered negativity then I guess You could call it negativity. Patriotic seems to be more of word I would use to describe it. But I guess that just isn't a politically correct word nowadays

Any beat up slant six dodge would crank out 400 thousand miles with almost no maintenance. So go peddle it somewhere else. No foreign garbage would handle even half the abuse I have put worn out American cars thru. Lock Hondas brakes up at 60 going downhill and put into first gear and pop clutch and see what happens. If auto get going about 35 or 40 and put into reverse. See how many times you can do before breaking. I have taken many a two hundred dollar ford or chevy getting ready to die and have tried to kill them on the road. Hard to do. You can heat up a slant six till manifolds are glowing pink let cool down and do again. Usually get bored with trying to kill car before car dies And Why would any self respecting american buy foriegn garbage, You must be a Democrat

Good points. Though the cobras were never produced in numbers. The cost of building one of those foreign body jokes is quite expensive, so hopefully they wont hurt price of real ones. I would imagine without a VIN to rivet in that these could not be titled as 69 Camaros. Titles should also read as a rebody, Gm was wrong in allowing them to be called Camaros when they should be called a kit car just like Cobras. I will never buy a new GM product after they did this, they soiled their name
