Restoration / Re: Seat Foam
« on: January 29, 2018, 04:16:02 PM »
Many thanks for your replys! The seats will go to a professional upholstery and new seat covers will be handmade using leather as cover material. They told me that they can make it look original - lets hope they are right.
I know that these seats were never available in leather but it will feel better than the original material. Unfortunately it is a lot more expensive....

Restoration / Seat Foam
« on: January 27, 2018, 03:43:33 PM »
I need to replace the seat foam on my 67 Camaro RS/SS 350 front seats. The car has the Delux Interior.
I want to know if there are any recommendations on the products available. They are available from OER, TMI and others.
Unfortunately I need to ship them to Austria/Europe so I want to buy the "right" ones as shipping is very expensive.

I hope some of you can give me some help to define the right product.

Thanks, Guenther

Thanks for the help! I have ordered the low fuel warning module and the decal and I am finished with the installation. All works fine and it is back to original  :)

Here are some pictures. The car has the original engine and powerglide transmission.

Yes I do have the factory gauges.  Unfortunately the guys who did the restoration of the car did not make it right....
I will install the fuel/brake lens and the low fuel module in the center console. I found the yellow wire unconnected under the center gauges and in addition I need to install the bulb in the speedo. Should work then.
Thanks, Guenther

Maintenance / Oil preasure gauge
« on: May 24, 2016, 08:36:06 PM »
I have bought a 1967 Camaro RS/SS 350 and imported it to Ausrtia. Unfortunately there are very few similar cars running here and the workshops dont have a glue....
So I hope someone can help me in this forum with my questions:

1) My car has the center console where I can read the engine oil preasure.
In addition to that I have an oil warning indicator in the speedometer (down left). I think there should be the low fuel warning light instead - am I right? My speedo has oil warning and brake.....which I guess is wrong for that SS 350 model.

2) When I only switch on the ignition (engine not starting) should the warning lights illuminate for control that they are good? In my car nothing happens - is that right?

Thanks, Guenther

Thanks, after I could not find one I went to a speedo shop and they made a new scale for me. What would have been the price for it?

Thanks for the Info. Unfortunately I dont have an owner manual for my car. I did find the information in a service manual in the net but the AC 44 are hard to find here in Europe and I was thinking that there are some replaceables out there in the market. I found somewhere that AC Delco R44XLS may fit but not sure.

what are the correct spark plugs for my 1967 Camaro RS/SS 350 with the L48 engine (295HP)?

If you can help me somehow please let me know.

Thanks, Guenther

Thanks for all your support guys!! My prefered option right now is to buy a used 67er speedometer and send it to a specialist for kmh modification. I already sent an email to Bob but I am still waiting for his response. Right now I am collecting all options and ideas. Hopefully I will get the car in October/November and then I can start working on it  8). I canīt await it

Hi Victor,
thanks for the reply! I want to do it original so the stickers are the last option. I hope someone can help me to find a source. And yes, we have a regular inspection every 2 years on the car - that make things not easier...

General Discussion / 1967 Camaro kmh Speedometer

Hello! My name is Guenther and in a few weeks I will be an happy owner of a 1967 Camaro RS/SS 350  8). I bought it from an US dealer and now it will be shipped to Austria/Europe.
I need to do some modifications to meet the local standards. One thing is that we need to have a speedometer with km/h. I dont want to put stickers on it and I have heard rumors that there have been original speedometers with km/h instead of miles.
I would be happy to hear where I can find one (or how to modify it) - but it must be an original and no aftermarket product  :-\
