Originality / 68 Rally Sport lower side moldings
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:59:41 AM »
On a '68 RS with the lower side moldings, concerning the doors only, I understand that the clips are of the "T" bolt with nut variety, but I am unsure about the ends (front/rear) - are they fastened with the same acorn nuts or are the end clips of the type that have female threads and take the low-profile/flat chrome plated phillips screw typical of most GM products of that era up through the 80's?
Could anyone post a pic showing the end attachments on an original car?
Would greatly appreciate any input on this.
Thank you.

Originality / 68 Rally Wheel Date Codes
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:49:33 AM »
I am searching out a set of original Rally wheels for a 68,(09D) and I was wondering what the range would be for the date codes? 90 days? How close to the build date of the car?

Originality / Under-Dash Heater Box
« on: June 04, 2018, 02:56:50 PM »
Just want to confirm, on a 68, the under-dash heater box color - is it semi-gloss black, or is it a dark gray?
Thanks for your help.

Hope someone knows the trivia on this. 68 with deluxe interior and fold down seat, the lower armrest panels, were they year-specific? Ashtray size variations? Lower armrest panel itself specific to fold down seat or just deluxe interior?

I have 2 sets - one with large ashtrays, and other with smaller ones- 67,68,69??? Larger ashtrays have ribs on lid.My car is a 68 (September 67 built) and I need to confirm the ash trays as well as any differences between fold down and non fold-down seat.

Also, the length of the thin stainless molding on the cardboard section of the quarter trim panel?

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you.

Originality / 68 RS Taillamp Harness
« on: April 17, 2018, 08:41:49 PM »
On a 68 RS, is the side marker lamp wiring a separate pigtailed harness, plugging into the taillamp harness on each side, or is it one uninterrupted wiring loom direct to the side marker harness. I have two harnesses, basically identical to each other, which came with my basket case, neither one installed, (backup lamp plugs cut off)one harness ends on each side with a 2-prong plug, the other harness is straight through to the side markers.
Does anyone know which is correct fo 68? Is one possibly a 69?
68 - separate harness just for the side marker lamp?
Or 69?

Thank you

Is the dash grab bar on a 68 Camaro different than that of the same year Firebird? If so, does anybody know what the differences are?

Originality / 396 Big Block Water Pump Back Plate, 68
« on: October 13, 2017, 08:44:56 PM »
I need to confirm the correct water pump rear cover plate for my '68 396 "284" short pump - which is correct:
The flat, plain version, or,
The version with the flared outer lip on it??
I have seen the flat plate on '65-'66 original pumps, but do not know when they changed the rear plate design.
Also, are the 1/4 x 20 attaching bolts 7/16" hex head like the Timing Cover, or are they flat-headed, slotted screw heads?

Any help greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Originality / 68 Core Support - Standard vs RS..............
« on: September 11, 2017, 08:24:14 PM »
On a 68 RS, I do not have the original Core support, but found one from a 68 Standard. My question is, on the washer bottle mount, would the factory original core support on the RS NOT have the 3 triangular pattern holes pierced on the left side of the core support, as the RS mounts the bottle farther back on fender?
Does anybody have an original 68 RS on which they could confirm these holes pierced or not?
Thank you.

Originality / Oil sender line for console gauge
« on: August 30, 2017, 08:17:19 PM »
In 68, with the console gauge package, was the line originally copper or plastic?
Thank you.

Originality / 68 Big Block Radiator Codes
« on: June 26, 2017, 02:55:11 PM »
I am of the understanding that the 67-68 Big Block radiator code on the pass side tank for manual trans is "OL", and this is for a 4-row core (?) but I can't seem to find what the code would be for a 23-inch, 3-Row core, Big Block, manual trans.

Does anybody know what the correct code for the pass tank would be? Original/survivor examples.
Thank you.

Originality / 1002 7 blade fan - 68 396
« on: June 21, 2017, 08:40:24 PM »
I was wondering if the "1002" (last 4 #'s) 7-blade clutch fan would be correct for a 68 L34, non-AC, Camaro?
The info I have is a bit ambiguous - "limited usage". No reference to Big Block.
If not, then which would be the correct fan for this application?
Thank you.

Originality / 68 L78 Lifter Valley Splash Shield
« on: June 07, 2017, 08:23:37 PM »
Did the L78 in 68 have an oil splash tray/baffle in the lifter valley? I purchased one from Heartbeat, of which they state is an "original GM part" (?) and there are interference issues with the bottom of the 069 intake.
Anybody have a pic of an original one, or had a similar experience such as this?

Originality / 1968 RS Horns
« on: June 13, 2016, 08:46:58 PM »
Can anyone post a photo showing the correct horns for a 68 Rally Sport? I understand these differ from the non-RS models?
Correct numbers also?
Any help greatly appreciated

Originality / 68 Big Block Coupe Spare Tire Floor Bracket Location
« on: September 02, 2015, 08:34:01 PM »
Can anyone help with the location of the spare tire bracket which spotwelds to the trunk floor on a '68 Big Block (L35) Coupe?
Prior - to - purchase floor replacement, and whoever installed the floor neglected to transfer this bracket; I am of the understanding/rumors that the location of this bracket differs from coupe/convertible as well as Big and Small block. Is this true?
Can anyone post the correct measurements? Thank you.
