"The fact that he photographed and showed those questionable items perhaps indicates that he purchased the car that way, and had no personal knowledge of the issues... restamp or not.."

Rule of thumb: Whenever a seller starts "playing stupid", be doubly suspicious!

Reading the description tells a story:

"1967 square traction bar 12 bolt camaro not a firebird repalcement correct with brackets. We are very knowledgeable about the correct parts you need for your specific restoration."

He is misinformed...that looks like a Firebird style square bar.


I'd believe that if he took listing down or corrected it after I messaged him on the fact that its a firebird bar and not a camaro.

Messaged the vendor "427 King" on the obvious ,  no response.

I've seen several complaints about other "prominent" vendors' shady practices lately (Made in USA stickers over "made in taiwan labels", continuously out of stock on a part so they can sell  "house" version,  advertising high quality part and sending crap, etc)

Between that and all of the scam cars out there, it's really discouraging.

Believe it or not....I have used Easy-Off oven cleaner on a 65 chevelle rear once. It took lots of elbow grease & steel wool, but it was sparkling  clean when I was done AND the factory paint daubs were still intact when I was done. might take some soak time to remove heavy crud or factory black paint. The bare iron flash rusted almost immediately, but overall, it turned out really well.  It appeared to me that the '65 rear was never painted from the factory. Just paint daubs on bare cast iron.  Make sure you rinse thoroughly, I mixed a little baking soda in the water to make sure the lye was neutralized & wear gloves & eye protection.

Since then, I got lazy & just sandblasted & painted or powdercoated the rears I have done.

Good Luck
