General Discussion / Re: "muscle car" without posi

If the formula is big engine, hipo parts from the factory, light weight body, than why not a 57 Chevy 210 with the fuel injected 283? The 210 was lighter than the Belair 283 was the biggest engine Chevy had and with fuel injection (exotic at the time) made one horsepower per cubic inch of displacement. That was big news for 1957. I think this is a subject that could be debated until the end of time and you won't find a consensus to it. I feel most do agree that it was the 64 gto that started it. However horsepower wars were going on before that.

Yes on the center emblem for the grill. I believe yellow is the correct color bulb at least that is what the 67's I've had, had.

Where did you live when you had that 68 z? I cannot help you trace the Vin but my car came from west Texas and the guy I got it from said he bought it after it was traded in on a new vega. Mine is blue on blue if you were in west Texas at that time maybe the same car? There were only 7199 1968 z's could not have been a lot of blue on blue in west texas. I would be interested to find out if it's the same car.its a long shot but maybe?

2m is powerglide, no turbo 350 in 67 camaros and turbo 400 was a big block only.
   My one 67 L35 w/TH400 has the UOIT listing 2M as M35 "PWR GLIDE AUTOMATIC"
I believe this to mean the Fisher body was prepared to use an automatic transmission in general and not indicative of the model transmission used.

I agree the point I was trying to make is that with the car being a small block it had to be a power glide.  No other choice for a small block 67.

Sounds like a pretty nice find. If it's the car you want I say go for it. If you have had you heart set on a different year or model (rs, big block ss, 67 or 69) than pass on it if he won't budge on price much, and wait for what you want. I personally love the 68 z's; you just don't see as many as 69. I guess what I'm saying is get the car you want, even if you spend a little more than what it might be worth, the fun factor and joy of having what you want is worth it.

Remember that it might have been bid to 32k on ebay but he will have fees to pay on ebay. So you could get it for somewhat less than 32k. Also remember a lot of fake bidding goes on, someone might b I'd to 32k and never show up with money. If you there with money ready to go I would think you would get it for less. I like the car and it reminds me of mine which I'm collecting parts for and Is getting ready for the. Rotisserie

Seems i seen you do a build on a chevy truck a while back.  If your the same person then you did a great job on that truck and i have no doubt that your camaro will come out great. Keep up the great work!

I was at a show early this spring and was talking to a guy with a 68 wearing ss 350 emblems. As we talked he casualy asked where i had learned so much about camaros? I had said nothing bad about his car and in fact most of our conversation had just been about camaros ib general. I told him that i have owned a number of camaros but had learned a lot on crg. He replied "oh those guys! I went to that sight once and wont go back. They are too uppity  and snooty." I just thought he must not like the truth and left it at that. We did continue to talk and had a good time but it did seem a little odd to me as everyone always seems so nice here.

 Ok, good to eliminate an option I know I couldn't remember for sure what they looked like but thought I would try to help.

On the 68 I used to own I bought a Robbins Auto Top. It fit well and my installer said it was one of the best he had ever seen. Was not cheep by any means, and while it seemed close to the original fabric it was a good heavier material and the color seemed right on. They also seemed to have a good warranty. The guy that owns the car now has had it for 12 years and the top still looks brand new, and I had it put on 3 years before he bought the car from me. Granted it didn't see much weather except for sun when I owned it and the owner now just drives it in nice weather also. I will probably use them again when my current 68 gets on the rotisserie.

 Is it possible that the AMP gauge came from a Nova?  Nova's used the console gauges up till like 77 I believe. I know I had a 76 Nova SS with them but it has been so long I don't remember exactly what they looked like.

Mild Modifications / Re: 8.2 10 bolt differential
« on: December 21, 2013, 05:01:45 PM »
another option for you would be to build/find a 8.5 ten bolt. It can take more abuse than the 8.2 and is cheaper to find. They came in Nova's after 1970 and are a direct bolt into a first gen Camaro. You could also find a 8.5 out of a second gen Camaro/F-bird after 71 (much more plentiful)but it will take a little modification to get it to work.
