Dear Sirs, Thank you for all the posts. I have checked and the rockers on a British Green painted car were painted body colour.

I am sorry for the use of the word 'wings' instead of 'fenders' however I am English and the car is in the UK.

Thank you again for all your help. Nigel

Restoration / British Green paint colour for my 1968 RS / SS
« on: September 22, 2017, 04:27:32 PM »
Dear Sirs, I would be grateful if you can confirm whether Chevrolet made a British Green metallic paint colour in 1968?

My 1968 RS / SS Camaro came from the factory painted British Green and the car is still British Green now however my mechanic has advised that there is a slight metallic in the paint.

We are trying to match the paint now as the rockers and the front wings need to be repainted.

The car has been repainted at some point in the past which might be the cause of the paint issue..

Any help would be gratefully received.

Best regards, Nigel

Hi Abiddle

Thanks so much for the post. I was not aware that Firestone had brought out a Wide Oval Redline Radial however I think these will be the best ones for my car as it came with Firestone Wide Oval Redline tires from the factory. I presume the FR70 X 14 are the correct replacements?

Thanks also for sending through the article. The video was great. They just don't make car adverts like that anymore!

Thanks again, Nigel

Originality / Correct tires for a 1968 Camaro RS / SS 350

I wish to install the correct tires on the original steel wheels on my 1968 Camaro RS / SS 350 which I understand are F70 x 14 Firestone Wide Oval Redline tires, however I have been told that the old style bias ply type constructed tire will track quite badly when driving along and not handle very well if I intend using the car for any reasonable length journey. Instead I have been told to install BF Goodrich Silvertown Redline radial tires.

Please can you confirm if this information is correct?

I am also trying to find out the correct width tire which came on the car and if all tires were the same width or if the rear tires were wider.

I would be grateful for your help so I can ensure I buy the correct tires.

Many thanks, Nigel

Thanks for all your help. I have managed to find a correct date coded Quadrajet from Custom Rebuilt Carbs. Philip was very helpful. The Carb has been completely refurbished and is in show condition. Kind regards Nigel

Can anyone recommend where I may be able to find a Rochester 4MV Quadrajet carburettor (7028212 DH / 1188) for my 1968 Camaro SS RS 350ci manual. I live in the UK and am struggling to find one. Many thanks, Nigel

Hi Kolektor, are the 3919803 manifolds for sale? and if so are they in good condition or do they require repair. I am looking for a 3919803 manifold for my 68 Camaro ss 350. I am also looking for the two intake manifolds. Thanks Nigel

Hi Russ, Please can you confirm  those casting numbers are correct for a 1968 350ci manual car. I have found the following advert for manifolds however they give the casting numbers as 3892679 and 3840912.

I just want to make sure I am buying the correct manifolds,

Russ, many thanks for all the information, and the casting numbers for the exhaust manifolds, just what I needed. Kind regards Nigel

Paul, thanks for the photo, is it just called an L48 air cleaner or is their a specific part number?

I have just purchased my first Camaro, a 1968 Camaro RS / SS, dash vin is 124378N443468. The previous owner had added various after market engine parts and I wish to return the engine to original factory spec.

The engine now has headers however I want to replace them with the original manifold which I believe is casting number 3919803. I have found a couple on Ebay however one has the oil fill tube and one does not. Is the oil fill tube original factory spec?

Please can you also confirm if the correct air cleaner for the car is an L48 single snorkel air cleaner?

Many thanks in advance, Nigel

Dear Ed & Paul, thank you both so much for all your help. It is great to know that the car is a true matching numbers 1968 SS 350. Once I have been to see the car next week I will with matching numbers do some research to see if it is also a true RS car. Thanks again and have a good weekend.
