Mild Modifications / Re: The Hugger goes ZL-1....
« on: November 25, 2018, 01:34:11 AM »
A TH350 trans hooked up to a ZL-1 engine? 

Personally, I would have gone with a TH400. I believe that's what came with them when new (if auto equipped)...

But hey, if it works what the heck.

Nice build...

I hate being picky, but the car in the pictures has no emblems on both the trunk & front header panel like the car for sale has.

Just saying......

Wish I had the rear part so I could complete mine.

Good luck finding one....took me five years before I gave up and bought an original from Jim at Heartbeat City.  Still feeling the pain.....but I finally got one.

Unbelievably, it almost got stolen at a cruise I was at last year.  Long story...............Now I keep my windows 3/4 up and doors locked.

Its amazing what some a-holes will do..

If you have to use repro, this is the place to go.

This car is the perfect example of "auctionitis".

Someone paid way too much for this thing at auction, and now the new owner thinks it should bring the same money.

Never happen.

Just for information sake..

These LED upgrades may not work with cars that have fiber optics / Vigilite option.

The end of the fiber that goes into the bulb socket usually goes right up to the edge of the bulb glass - which cant happen with LED's.

Just sayin...

I've done this a few times.  A few of "my batteries" are in certified Camaros & Novas.

Basically gutting them is the hardest and the most unsafe thing to do....once that's done, the rest is relative based on your mechanical skill level / determination.

I use Odessey batteries (PC 925) to place inside.

Due to safety reasons, I really wont go into further detail about doing this type of restoration.

There is no bottom to reinstall.

General Discussion / Re: Dealer number
« on: January 05, 2018, 05:49:18 PM »
I have a friend who is an original owner of a 68 Camaro that he ordered himself.  Still has the car...
So he figures for the helluvit, he'll get the NCRS dealer report to have as more info.
To his surprise, he gets the report and it lists a dealer number, with an additional statement about not being able to identify a dealer name.
My friend calls the person at NCRS and he explains what he has in terms of paperwork, original window sticker, protecto plate...whatever.
In essence, he bought the car at Sausman Chevrolet outside Harrisburg, PA in 68.  The dealer number on the report is one number off the one listed on the window sticker.
He calls the NCRS person and explains the situation.......however, the person at NCRS wouldn't listen to him and wouldn't correct the report / cert....even with proof-positive data.

So.....just because you get a report from the NCRS, I wouldn't take it as gospel truth.

Thanks for the info but the goal here is to find and document other 68/69 Camaro's with their original LH door mirror frame that has no mold line/seam. 

What has always amazed me  - are the differences between original "from the factory" parts vs. original NOS GM parts.  I was told by a Camaro expert to never say "that's absolutely" the way it is.  As in this case it seems quite possibly that there were few mirrors that were flat vs ribbed.  Original is original.  So how do you argue that?  The part number is what its supposed to be.

Btw, my GM NOS mirror dated April 1970 has a "mold / parting line" as seen in the eBay pics.
