Mild Modifications / original style reproduction seat covers?
« on: September 10, 2017, 11:10:39 PM »
Does Legendary (or any one else) offer 69 standard seat covers in the original style but in leather instead of vinyl? I really like the leather seats in my pentastar.

I've only ever owned the 69 version pictured above, the intake seemed to me to be pretty flat and I had previously read what Chick says, that the earlier versions were taller. I'd really be interested in seeing the bottom of that hood ( "original cross-ram with repro steel hood"   ) if it differs from original round hole ZL2 hoods.

Thanks James, that is great news, my car is a factory ac car too and I intend to keep it that way. I would love to find out who built that car and ask him a few questions (like did he use the taller bb motor mount frame bracket on the driver side). I'm assuming it had the SS hood?

Maybe you could custom make a bottom for the cowl air cleaner with a bottom from a tri power

....this is what I figured someone had maybe already done, what I had been searching for. Repops of the tri-power air cleaner are cheap enough to sacrifice one for this. I'm a long way from being there right now anyway, so plenty of time to experiment. I have both a cowl ind hood and an SS hood for the car and can go either way. Just thought it would be cool to fab up something close to what GM would have offered, and thought someone may have already done it. Thanks for the replies.

Thanks guys....

"...The ZL2 hood might be a better option? I believe the engine and intake/carbs will fit no problem, but the main issue might be the air cleaner...."

I have searched the web numerous times (with no luck) looking for someone who may have fabbed up a "cowl induction" air cleaner to mate a BB tri-power to a ZL2 hood, or modified the bottom of the hood to mate to a triangular tri-power air cleaner. I don't believe there is room inside the correct round base to mate the three carb base and still have room for an element. Am I correct in thinking the dual four Z28 option with the oval air cleaner only mated to a fiberglass hood or was a steel hood available with a modified understructure?  Sorry for all the questions, just thinking out loud.

Hello Bullit

Yes, it is a vette setup (400hp 427, oval port, 69 model). I searched the web, but had no luck finding an example of my future combo. On a side note, I had and restored a garnet red 69 Z back in the 80's. Original matching numbers car, red with a red interior, factory 4.10 gear car. It was a blast. The car I hope to restore soon is my wife's car (we both had 69s when we first got married). I sold mine, but we still have hers (it was her first car).   jess

Hey guys, newbie (to the board) here. I have a 69 camaro I intend to restore and hope install a BB chevy with a 69 400/427 tripower setup. Just wondering if anyone has pics of a 69 with an SS hood and this intake/carb combination.
