Maintenance / Re: 68 Tilt column loose & turn signal switch removal

This was helpful thanks.  I was able to tap mine off relatively easily once I knew how it came apart.  I'm rebuilding a 67 RS Convertible in Cairns, where are you?

Thanks for the reply, very helpful.  I've placed a small order with Classic Industries to test shipping, service and quality.  Have you had any experience with the reproduction door shells?  Mine are reasonable but doesn't take many panel beater hours to get to the $350 price of a new shell.

Originality / '67 Interior and Engine Bay Finish.

Hi,

I have a 67 RS Convertible I've started restoring in Australia.  Interior code is for Black, however I'm not sure if it should be satin (matte) or gloss.

Same question for the engine bay and firewall, were they originally satin or gloss?

Appreciate any assistance.

Thanks.

Hi,

Restoring a 67 Convertible with A/C. Original unit is beyond recovery, considering Vintage Air system.  Appreciate any comments on benefits and problems with these systems.

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm looking at purchasing quite a few parts for my 67 RS Convertible to complete the restoration.  I'll have to order and then have it all shipped to Australia so will not be able to see the quality prior to order.

Major suppliers appear to be Classic Industries and Rick's First Gen, but would consider others.  Appreciate any comments on the quality of parts, price, service etc.

Thanks.

The master cylinder would be standard I believe, however the local "mechanics" would not have seen anything like this.  Carburettor was from a Russian truck, air conditioner compressor is gone, coil could be from anything and quite a few other running repairs done throughout it's life.  It has motor oil in the powerglide and it was parked up shortly after that was added I'm guessing.

Has front disc brakes, haven't had a close look at the diff but assume it is not 12 bolt with 327 and powerglide.  Will have a look when I'm home next.

My 67 RS was in a movie in Cambodia in 1969. Have a look at my post in foreign camaros in this forum. There is a link to the movie on you tube. Quality is ordinary but you'll get the idea.

Yes, still lots of unanswered questions! Wheels are also different but pretty unlikely there were two of these in Cambodia at that time.  I think it is more likely they removed the emblems for the movie then replaced them afterwards.  There are some interior shots later in the film and seat trim etc all looks correct, but the quality is very ordinary as you've seen so difficult to be sure.  I am trying to get a better quality copy of the movie but no luck so far.
I haven't seen these type wheels on any other cars. Does anyone know if they were an option orare they just something they ound that fitted? They are similar to wheels on GM cars in Australia around that time.

Missed the question re #1 owner.  I was told the car was given to the King of Cambodia by the French government in 1967 but don't know how I'd verify this. The movie seems the best indication it was his car but unless I can get some documentation from GM France it is all circumstantial.

Trunk emblem. Not sure what this is but guess it may be the importer? Another terrible quality photo but you get the idea!
