Restoration / after the trunk floor, then what?
« on: October 16, 2011, 02:18:10 PM »
Ive just installed a complete trunk floor on my 67, with quarter panels installed, what's next? There's the trunk drop offs, rear inner valence, etc. Don't wanna get my carriage ahead of my horse.

Stinger, I was afraid of that. I believe at least one side has more rust than the other. I was hoping I could replace it without dealing w the quarter. Thanx for the info

Restoration / replacing rear outer wheelhouse
« on: September 16, 2011, 07:15:29 AM »
  Ok, here's what im facing. I have a 67 Camaro, at the preset time, the lower rear quarters, trunk floor, taillight panel, rear inner valence, has all been removed. Both of my rear inner wheelhouses are in good shape, but the outer wheelhouse sections are bad on about 12" of the rear portion. My question is, were about to begin putting in a complete trunk floor, should I replace the outer wheelhouses prior to this or after? Also, since only a small portion of the rear of the wheelhouses are bad, could I use only a portion of a new wheelhouse, instead of replacing the whole thing. Also, is it even possible to replace a outer wheelhouse w/ out removing the entire quarter panel???? Please help!!!

67 RSS, I do have the original harness to the car n I believe they may be unaltered, but right now their in a spaghetti like mess in a barrel. There's ALOT of wiring on a rs/ss w/ air and deluxe int!!! Im dreading untangling it all but that should tell me. Could anyone post what the harness w/ the gauges would look like. When I got the car, the Speedo was replaced with a '68 cluster with the fuel on it, so that may also be a clue. IZRSS, thanks for the diagrams that will be helpful. FLYINGSKIBIKER, there was some rivets at the front of the tunnel where the front of the console would have been. Is that the ar your speaking of?

 I'm in the process of restoring a 67 ss350 and was looking for clues on whether or not it originally had console gauges. The interior was almost completely stripped when I got the car.trim tag says it had a console but its gone as is the speedo/tach. I be heard there should be a small hole in the firewall behind the distributor are but my firewall has been "hammered" back to make more room for a modern distributor. I can see a hole that was punched halfway out, but it looks like it may have closed during the "hammering". Any other clues to look for??

Very,very true lol. Here's another thing I was thinking, correct me if u disagree, is a 67 more than likely the easiest 1st Gen to determine TRUE SS on? I know 68 is not. (not real familiar w/ the 69). I would ASSUME more ss/rs cars were built in 68 due to the fact more people were becoming more familiar with the Camaro, and realizing different options could be combined. ( There's not alot of advertisements that talk about combining the ss w/ the rs in '67 that I know of, granted, there was some) By the time 69 came around, people were very aware of the Z28, and that had to lessen the amount of some of the SS/RSs I would think, as more Z28/RSs were made. But being mostly familiar w/ the 67, in the last 10 years id say, I've seen a ton of camaros, at shows, a decent amount of SSs (of course these will be restored 1st, I would think, so that makes sence) but not very often a 3L 4P, 3L 4Y, etc. car at a local show. So anyhow, that's how I came up w/ that # for the 67s, basically just from the ratio I've seen over the years, of course there may be all these great cars out there hiding that NEVER come out, ya know. Its all fun detective work :)

 Ok, so its a FACT,well probably NEVER know how many TRUE rs/ss's were made, I know. BUT, over the years we've been to many shows, seen many camaros, n alot of us take time to look at the TRIM TAG (if the hood is up) to check the legitimacy. We know in 67 there was aprox. 31,000 TRUE SS's, without opening up a can of worms TOO big, what's the guestimation of how many was made each year (67-69) ? We all have that # in our head, but just for fun, let it out! I, say, 1967- 6,207 1968- 7,118 1969- 5,021. There, it had to be said, sue me lol.

 Dave, that's very, very true,good point! Sometimes we forget there WAS other plants besides NORWOOD and LA right?! Also, over time I've had questions arise about the CAMARO, and many of them, no matter what restoration handbook, magazine,etc. I read., JUST NEVER DISCUSSED some of them! After less than a week on the CRG, all were answered in GREAT DETAIL. Thank God for this site!

 Cool thanks for the info. That's around my ballpark figure. Probably slightly lower I assume on the 67 version

General Discussion / L48 "actual " horsepower
« on: July 19, 2011, 11:33:13 AM »
 We all know alot of the horsepower ratings were underestimated, but does anyone know what the actual horsepower of the first L48s were? Or was it pretty close to the 295 rating?

 Wow, after today I realize that the plant the Camaro was built, has little to do with dealership.
