Restoration / Re: 1969 Dash Carrier Restoration Source
« on: February 09, 2018, 04:49:21 AM »
There is a lot of good info on the dash carrier here. I just finished one on my 69. I must say being a maintenance tech in a auto plant that the process of manufacturing has come a long way. I decided to buy a carrier rather than ship out. My carrier was just to brittle from time and I guess the summer heat. Anyone doing this yourself just take your time. Take pictures before and just try and have fun with it. I had to cut out for clock, tach, and defroster switch and that made mine a little harder but now it's on the next project.

I have a 69 Camaro with 3.07 12 bolt same as yours. My car is original and it is a X11 SS-350. The engine code is HB.

I watched the video's and really enjoyed them. Nice work. I was just a kid in the 60's but I have had a love for the Camaro ever since I can remember. I still have my 69 SS that I drove in high school.

Kurt the car was built first day of production. It did not have radius rod. Since it's been changed to 4 speed and rear purch is broken I was thinking multi leafs might work better. I've read about monos that have good reviews.

I had no idea they were worth that much. Glad mine has one.

Kurt the reason is the 67 has a broken saddle on the right side of rear end. In my extra parts over the years I kept a 69 front subframe and 12 bolt posi. My dad has a 67 RS all original and they seem too soft for me.  I'm thinking with good power they would be best.

I want to change over to multi leaf springs on a 67. I will put in a 69 12 bolt. I know I will most likely need longer u bolts.  What else will I need for this conversion and where would you purchase from?

I like the 327 engines too. I think I'll keep it 4 speed and have some fun then decide how to finish car. JKZ27 I think we have sister cars I also have a 69 SS/RS Cortez silver.

Talked to previous owner. He changed car to 4 speed. Car later came out of gear rolled into tree bending front fender. He soon busted tranny. Friend offered good price for engine so he sold it and called me to buy the rest. Mystery solved.

Yes, It will be a few days as I am away with my job. That is the correct Vin that you stated. The car is red with console so I think that's most likely what it is. I have several parts to make car 4 speed and 12 bolt. In your opinion would you put it 327 auto again? I have those too but not the originals. I am trying to get in touch with past owner who I purchased from to get clues on original engine and if they changed paddles. I agree that most likely they were changed. thank you for your info and advise.

Decoding/Numbers / 67 Trim tag
« on: January 24, 2014, 05:21:38 PM »
I purchased a 67 Camaro back in 78 and stored it. The person I got it from blew the motor. He was thinking of making a drag car but lost interest. I purchased the car with out motor or transmission. The body is rock solid no rust anywhere. Here are the trim tag numbers 08D       T087
                                                                                                       67-12637-LOS  52
                                                                                                        742-Z             R-R
                                                                                                        2MG  3SK
                                                                                                        5Y
The VIN shows v8 and the car is the 173rd built. I take it was a 327 PG but what is confusing is factory clutch paddle and a 400 turbo cross member. I set in a small block and the springs set like a big block. It has no traction bar and a 10 bolt rear. I should also note the opening in transmission tunnel has factory opening. What is your guess on the original state of this car?
