Originality / Re: 67 Convertible SS/RS horn.

You can try WD40 or similar spray into the horn and let it soak a while. I have done this several times to restore the sound.

Let,s see how many bids they get starting at 38K. Besides the shill.

You could do what someone did on one of my cars. Cut  hole in the inner fender, make sheetmetal  patch, spray undercoating, paint to match. We did not even notice until we pulled the front metal during resto.

The cool factor is what I am going for. Watching people at the cruise ins do a double take and probably that guy who (ordered one new just like it) back in the day. The fuel thing is a non issue. An L78 with 355 gears and my foot can,t get much worse.

Is this really bidding at over 40K now?

Got around to starting to sort the tripower out. I set it on a bucket next to the test engine stand and pumped some fuel in it. So many leaks I could not count them. Surprisingly the next day the gaskets must have swollen and I was down to just a couple but the needle and seats and floats worked perfect. Got some part # specific kits ordered.

Any of you tried the trailer tire covers? They are priced pretty cheap and my trailers tires seem to dry rot while my cars stored inside out of the sun do not. Last fall I got a new boat trailer that will be used maybe once or twice a year and I would like to think I could actually wear out the tread for a change. My car trailer tires have about 1500 miles on them but I am about afraid to go far on them.

Ed you are probably right. I was thinking about the earlier big cars and C2 vettes.

I was thinking that bigblock chrome valve covers cam with the SS option. Should COPO,s have chrome?

I think the whole story is BS. LOOKS like a clean body with nice parts. Some guys are really getting good at applying patina.

6-cylinder Camaros / Re: 1968 6cyl 3spd

I think rare options are desirable but more so if it is a desirable option plus on a desirable model. Loaded big block four doors are neat but the resale market is very slim. My 69 vert WAS per the POP a 6 cylinder 3 speed with factory air (kind of rare) but it never impressed anyone. When it was sold the current owner did not seem to even care.

All brings back a lot of memorys of the time. But some things never change.

Well IF I was, at least I would know whether to show up or not.
