General Discussion / 68 RS/SS Convertible VIN #
« on: April 29, 2014, 04:09:46 AM »
Hello Everyone,

I purchased this car back in October. I have had my eye on the Car for 25 years, and tried to buy it but was not successful.  After many years I now own it. I am pretty sure it's original numbers matching car. The problem is, my Buddy that restored it in the early 90"s replaced the dash ( which was rusted ) but did not replace the the original vin plate. I have found the other 2 partial Vin #s on the fierwall and it is correct. I have the Protecto plate and have researched and found I am the 4th Owner.

My Problem is,,, How can I get the Vin # back in the windshield to make it right??

Thanks
Dean

Hi Folks,

Happy Holidays and thanks for the feedback. I have not had the chance to post pic's.  We did have a nice day last week here in MD, and took the car for a spin, and it was great!! I am so looking forward to doing this project. It looks like I will be doing some new body parts ( door skins ) and a few other small things.  Driving a Convertible is so cool!! No Mike I will not Hot Rod this one!!  All the the #'s match so far, I have had 5 and never had a protecto plate and all the history that this car has!! 

My first thought was to Tub it, Slam it, and drop a blown 502 in it and be the coolest car around. But my son insists it stay's all original.   

Thanks,
Dean

It's a small block car. I will post some pics in a couple days. It's to damn cold here in MD to pull the car out today. Thanks for the feedback.

Hi Everyone,
I am new to this web site, but not new to First Generation Camaros. I bought a 1968 RS/SS convertible that I have had my eye on for 25 years. I was told it's a numbers matching car. I didn't verify this but, when it came up for sale, I jumped on it. This is my 6th First Generation, but I Hot Rodded the other 5!!!

I have a few question's, if you all would be so kind to chime in. I know the original color is Corvette Bronze. How important is it to make it that color again?? I have not checked the Engine, Trans, Or Rear #'s (12 bolt).  I hope to have more info from that stuff in a week or two. The other question I have is about the convertible top. What are the correct terms for the the top and parts.

I will have a lot more questions, for sure!!

Thanks,
Dean
