Restoration / Re: 1968 Z28 Camaro paint code for white strip
« on: May 13, 2019, 10:20:03 PM »
In the center of the PPG 68 paint chip reference sheet it indicates Camaro striping colors - including 8259 Ermine White.  See link below.

Also at the bottom here with Lucite code for Ermine White:

And from the CRG website indicating white strip used with Rallye Green:

The MT engine application code would indicate a manual and AIR/smog car, of which all were assembled at the LOS or Van Nuys plant in 67.  My hunch is a trim tag swap to make the car more that it was originally.

Here's a starting point:

At least the paint on the underside of the hood is nice and shiny    ;)

Here's a old thread regarding torx door strikers.  I didn't think they were used that early.


If anyone wants to pursue further, I found a Facebook page the other day for Chatham Canada and that same picture appeared waaaaay down in their archived photos.  There were a few comments, and one stated that the same place is now this dealership below.  A couple others commented they worked there back in the day or new someone.  I'll see if I can find the Facebook page again.

Wouldn't it be in a Fisher assembly manual, which I seem to recall are nowhere to be found?

General Discussion / Re: 1967 327 Smog Pump and Brackets Value
« on: April 09, 2019, 09:06:51 PM »
They're fairly plentiful on eBay and seem to go for $50-$100 for the base 327 type pump in need of a rebuild.  Pulley and brackets will increase it to the $150 you mentioned.  The L30/L48 pumps are a little more difficult to find and command a little more $$.  If the car had AC, the orange pump bracket installed at the engine plant brace would kick up the value, as those C60 pieces are harder to find.     

Restoration / Re: Correct color bolts for Steering Box
« on: March 27, 2019, 01:08:02 AM »
I pulled out two gearboxes, dated 312 7 and 353 7 so both off a 68 but a few months before your box.  Both has the same cover bolts, with three spokes radiating out from near the center and the letters R S C in between the spokes.  They were dark phosphate finish and had a separate lock washer.  Picture is of the 312 but both had identical bolts.  The covers did not have the Saginaw S as seen in the 69 cover above, and look the same as the picture in reply #4 above.  Both caps also had the 5689023 number, which I assume is a part #.

Anyone know of a suitable and modern lubricant for the felt?  $34.99 on eBay is a bit steep for antique grease.   :o

Read this again around the bottom right of the table.  Both plants started with N5xxxxx at the beginning of the 1969 model year, then at Norwood progressed through N6xxxxx and ended at N711922 through their extended production year.

I'm thinking the only difference between the L30 and L48 would have been the chrome lid, and the bases are identical.  Yours should be 6421914, and it looks like someone just stuck the wrong repop label on it.  Funny how the AIM page shows the bottom tubes incorrectly oriented, and like the mystery base I have.  Thanks.

That seems to be how the L48 one is oriented.  Does it still have the black and gold AC label on the outside with the part number?  Also just noticed you have chrome valve covers with breathers in each.
