Thousands of ads out there, what are you looking for? Also want year Camaro do you have?

Paul

Paul...I have a 69 SS 350....

I looked online for old vintage newspaper ads for Reese Chevy in Mechanicsville, PA without any luck....nothing that I don't have to pay for.

Next time I go to Carlisle, I'll make a stop at a local library there and check it out.

Thanks,
Mike

Finally spent to $50 on the NCRS Shipping / Dealer info.....said my car was shipped to Reese Chevrolet in Mechanicsburg, PA - near Carlisle.

Does anyone have anything related to that dealership, like dealer emblem, pictures, info???  I'd be glad to hear from you if you do....

Thanks,
Mike

With that date and 2 fuel lines, it is an SS.

Kurt......what does the date have to do with it?....Just asking....:) 
The only small block engine RPOs in '69 to have two fuel lines were LM1 and L48 (SS), and this car's build date is too late for it to have been an LM1.

Oh...ok!! Gotcha- Thanks.

Originality / Numbers Matching or Not?
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:26:35 PM »
I have a friend who is the original owner of a 68 Camaro/ 327 / 4 speed....neat car.

Back in 68, he had the car for a week and the rear developed a leak, which turned out to be a crack in the casting.  The dealership had the rear replaced under GM warranty.  So is the car still considered a numbers matching drive train????  The owner had no choice - just got his car fixed under warranty.  He has all the paper work on the car since day one.....

Same car.....he ordered the car with an AM radio....but what he received when the car was delivered - was an aftermarket unit made by Motorola.  No capacitors on the frame anywhere on the car and no caps on the voltage regulator.  An obvious addition BEFORE the car was delivered.  Seems to be a money making trick dealers did back in the day...pay $60 for a GM AM radio, and the dealer puts in a cheaper aftermarket unit to make a few extra $$.

Again.... is this considered original or not????  This is how it was delivered when he picked up the car from the dealership.  How does this car get judged in concourse judging????

Just throwing this out for thought.

Maintenance / Fuel Pump - How old is too old?
« on: May 09, 2017, 12:30:12 AM »
Spoke with a friend of mine who has a 68 327 Camaro yesterday, and he asked me how long I would keep my fuel pump on my 69 SS 350 before I replace it due to age - like preventative maintenance.

To be honest, I wasn't sure what to tell him.  I've had my AC embossed unit on my car since 1994 with no issues (knock on wood).

Now I'm wondering if I should replace it.

Any thoughts / suggestions????

The ad states: "100% NUMBERS MATCHING DRIVE TRAIN, 302-290 HP "DZ" ENGINE, ENGINE IS RE-STAMPED NOT ORIGINAL TO THE CAR". 

Geez.....my car just became a number matching drive train car!!! WOO-HOO!!! ;)

Amazing....

Trailer the car.  No need to have rocks and loose lug nuts bouncing off the car and windshield.  No need to risk it.

I would suggest using plenty of 3M paint masking tape (the blue stuff) around the edges of the dash and ash tray door itself.  Install it and remove the tape...
