I have a friend with a 302 block and the serial number is close to yours, but it is not your original one.

I spoke with John Elliott several years back.  I don't think the car has been located.

Such a bummer that Rusty's '67 was destroyed like that.

I had not seen the gas station photo before so many thanks for posting it.  Off the top of my head I thought I heard that there were three Smokey Camaros at Bonneville in '68.

Thanks for posting, Mike.  The Laurie Craig Z has still not been discovered.  It is correct that the car went to Tony Morris (aka Morris Torlay) and I was told about that by Robert Barg some years back.  Where it went after Tony was done racing it is not known.  It's a terrific car and I hope it still survives.

I'm a little confused.  I tried to help you with the ID of your car some years back.  You didn't seem to care about the European race history and rebuilt the car to a mildly modified street car.  I think you may have painted it red?  Might have put a Yenko fiberglass hood on it too?  When I first got information from you, I received no VIN but got a picture of a cowl tag that showed it was built 06E, had Y-2 paint and 765-Z interior.  The tag also showed 2LGS 3K 4P for the options.  I sent you a picture showing that it was most likely the '67 Camaro driven by Fritz Schulz at Hockenheim in September, 1969.  I never got a response.  You are now evidently asking about a car with a different VIN that would be built more in the 06C timeframe and you say it is not an SS model.  Do you have any other tag photos or info on what the original color was, original interior, etc?  The frame pics and the others all seem to be from the other car, the yellow SS, which I got from you a long time ago.

Interesting that this SS convertible looks to have California tags ?

Definitely CA license plates.  The plate frame looks like it is from Parker-Robb Chevrolet in Walnut Creek which is in the general SF/Bay Area.

Wow, nicely done and very impressive.  Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome.  Glad you enjoyed them.

1967 Paul Revere 250 color images posted recently by Harry Hurst via Facebook 2022

Car #68 is the Camaro of Bill Boye. This is its first racing appearance and it is one of the two "Stormer" Z-28s built by Yenko Chevrolet.

Not sure this would work without interfering with the drag link on a Camaro but it might be a possibility.

The ex-Gary Morgan '67 Z from Heinrich Chevrolet is being advertised on the Hemmings website for $205K

Thanks for the updates, Mike.  Looking good, as always.

The top picture is not a match for the other three.  Totally different base in the last three.
