General Discussion / This is why you NEVER trust anyone on ebay
« on: January 12, 2013, 09:04:54 PM »
Some really nice docs for a Norwood LF7 Coupe were sold a few days ago by seller rradar2002 out of Medford, OR.


The seller said:

68 Camaro Owners Manual + Envelope + Waranty & Owner Protection Plan with Metal ID Plate  + Window Sticker + Milage Sticker + Inspection Schedule + Air Pollution Brochure. Most  items are in VG to Excellent Condition. Was saved from vehicle I owned and kept inside out of sun or moisture.   Will make a nice presentation for your Camaro.  Be sure to ask about the condition of individual items before bidding. Thanks.

They were purchased with a buy it now of $50.00 by another ebay seller wbjpmj out of Canfield, OH, but in HIS ad, the car has magically turned into an SS!!


THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. A FACTORY ORIGINAL 1968 CAMARO SPORT COUPE SS WINDOW STICKER WITH THE MATCHING OWNERS PROTECTION PLAN BOOKLET AND THE ORIGINAL NEW VEHICLE CHECK IN SHEET. IF YOU OWN A BUTTERNUT YELLOW SS WITH A BLACK VINYL TOP VIN ID: 124378N449356 SOLD NEW IN AUGUST OF 1968 FROM DANIELS CHEVROLET IN COLORADO SPRINGS COLORADO THIS IS YOUR ORIGINAL DOCUMENTATION !!!!!! This is one of those pieces that you don't find everyday and when you do it is not in the condition this piece is in for that exclusive show piece. No need to play the bidding game here as you can buy it today and receive it in three days. All Literature listed is of the finest quality and will compliment any show car of any quality. Unless listed as a daily driver piece the photo that you see is the item that you will receive. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase simply send it back and I will refund your purchase price less the original shipping costs.

 If you are looking for the finishing touch for your show piece or daily driver and want only the best in Factory Original Literature in hard to find pieces you have found on of the Rarest collections in existence. I will be listing 20-25 pieces per week until sold which I can assure you will be quite sometime with over 1,600 pieces for all makes and models. I have the Original owners manuals, warranty booklet's and plates, tire brochures, emission brochures, radio brochures, convertible top manuals, envelopes, bags, leather pouches and anything else that may have been found in the glove box of the vehicle when it rolled off the showroom floor. You will find that my prices based on the condition of all of my literature are the best on E-Bay.

The item you see is the one being sent to you should you be the winning bidder. There are no RE-PRINTS in this collection. RE-PRINTS are found all over the internet, however factory original pieces are of the hardest to acquire especially in the condition found here.

Factory Original Owners Protection Plan Booklet with Metal Plate for a 1968 Camaro Sport Coupe WITH THE MATCHING ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER AND MATCHING VIN. This particular piece was from a Butternut Yellow with a Black Vinyl Top VIN ID: 124378N449356 with the Matching OPP Manual and Plate. The book is in exceptional condition,  Original Part number is 3936265 FIRST Edition and also has the Original Dealer Pre-Delivery Sheet and the owners name was never filled in. As seen in the photo literature is in excellent condition. Rating this piece on a scale of 1-10 considering it's age I would give it a 9.5. Please review the photo closely prior to bid or purchase. Being an original piece which is very hard to acquire it is an excellent original piece.  Looking for other Vette Manuals, Import Manuals, Domestic Manuals, Service Manuals, Parts Manuals, or other unique show car literature keep checking my auctions as they will be here.

All items will be sent by Economy First Class Mail with delivery confirmation for your protection as well as mine. Shipping will be FREE across the United States and $8.00 to Canada. Others please e-mail prior to purchase and verify that I ship to your area.

Not only that, but he didn't include the rest of the docs and paperwork in his auction, so you're getting less for more $$$! Now, I'm not saying the new seller is trying to rip anyone off (you can make that decision on your own), but I've contacted him about his "mistake", and what do you wnat to bet the auction WON'T be changed?

The lesson? Do the detective work BEFORE you buy. (Thanks for the heads up Warren!!)

Gents, I received an email from Michael Brennan, the chair of the muscle car selection committee for the 2013 SAN MARINO MOTOR CLASSIC.

He's asking for original (or restored) ZL-1 and/or other COPO owners that might be interested in participating.

If you have a ZL-1 or a COPO, and would like to enter your car, please contact Michael at

If you don't have a ZL-1 or a COPO, but know someone that does, please pass this info to them.

Research Topics & Reports / 67-68 Los Angeles firewall piercings
« on: October 22, 2012, 03:51:31 PM »
Gents, Troy is working on a firewall report and needs some assistance.

He's found that Norwood cars follow the AIM exactly for the firewall piercings, but he's found that LA didn't always go by the book! Specifically, the manual transmission backup light wiring hole and the oil line hole for the U17 gauge option.

Therefore, anyone with an ORIGINAL UNRESTORED Los Angeles built 67 or 68 Camaro with a manual transmission (3 or 4 speed), please post a picture of your firewall. Specifically the general area where the backup light wiring hole is, but a large enough picture so he can get a reference as to other holes and components.

Also, anyone with a Los Angeles built 67 or 68 Camaro with the U17 gauge package (manual or automatic transmission), please post pictures of your firewall. Again, specifically the general area where the oil line goes through the firewall, but a large enough picture so he can get a reference as to other holes and components.

In addition, please post the year, model (Coupe or Convertible), and build date of your car, along with the Fisher Body scheduling code, so he knows when any changes that may show up took place.

Any questions, or if your picture is too large to post on site, feel free to email them directly to Troy or myself. My email address is in my profile.



Mild Modifications / Reproduction AM/FM quality?
« on: April 23, 2012, 04:04:16 PM »
Anyone know anything about THIS RADIO? It's very pricy (all the repop houses sell it for about the same price), but my radio just died and it would cost close to that to get it fixed. And even then it would still be 50 year old technology. This one "appears" correct, but I haven't seen it up close so there may be some minor differences.

Basically I'd like to know if it really DOES look "correct", how does it sound and how's the overall manufacture quality. It's actually made in the US by ANTIQUE AUTOMOBILE RADIO, so hopefully, that's a plus!

Thanks in advance...

John Pirkle obituary

I didn't know John personally, but spoke with him on a few occasions over the last several years. He was a well respected member of the Corvette community as well as just about all other GM communities. His attention to detail was unparalleled and he will be terribly missed.

The picture below is John Hinckley and John Pirkle at the last NCRS National convention in July.

Rest in peace Colonel.

1968 - Orphans / 18L324909 LF7 on Riverside Craigslist
« on: September 30, 2011, 10:44:15 PM »

VIN: 18L324909
Suffix: V1229ME

Location: Riverside, CA

This is a complete 327 large journal short block out of a 1968 camaro. It is casting number 3914678 which indicates 302, 327, or 350 large journal 2 bolt mains. Only produced in 1968 this is a very rare casting number from what im told and is correct for corvettes, camaro z-28 etc. only the crank would be differant to acheive the differant displacements. The date code shows it was cast on Dec 20 1967. It has a 327 crank casting# 3911001 and the desirable 7178 main caps. It is stock bore, turns freely and apparently has never been rebuilt. Looks to be in great shape except light rust in one cylinder. would definitely clean up with a bore job. Have an oil pan to go with to ease transport as well. Located in riverside but i could make delivery arrangements depending on distance in southern california. These are selling on ebay for between $650 and $2800, so if i dont sell it here im going to auction it. I would rather not deal with that though and willing to part with it for $400 or best offer 951-836-0620 ask for Bryan.

Xerox is doing something really cool for our troops and you can (should) participate. Even if you disagree with our policies.

Go to THIS SITE and send a Christmas card to one of our troops. It only takes a few minutes of your time and would be a huge lift to someone far away from home. There are "canned" statements, but if you have the time, you can use your own words to say thanks. Please though, no political statements. Just be supportive of our military personnel.


Research Topics & Reports / Early 1969 Remote Mirrors
« on: March 22, 2010, 03:11:03 AM »
I'm working on a Mirror report for the group and need information from you EARLY (August/September 1968 timeframe) 1969 Camaro owners with an original factory installed remote mirror.

The 1968 Remote Mirror utilized an intermediate "adjusting collar" because the mirror was used model wide. It also had two small drain holes on either side of the bottom of the mirror "head".

The 1969 Remote Mirror didn't utilize the intermediate "adjusting collar" because each mirror was specific to each model car. Each had their own part number and were designed just for the slope of the drivers side door. The 1969 mirror also had a center "oblong" drain hole in the bottom of the "head" instead of the two small holes as used in the 1968 mirror.

My data indicates that the 1968 version was produced up to August, 1968 (8-DMI-8), but was this mirror installed on any 1969 models from the factory, or was it an over the counter service replacement?

So, I need everyone with an early (August or September, 1968) produced 1969 model year Camaro with the FACTORY installed D33 Remote Mirror (that's VERY important. It has to be the original factory installed mirror), to take a look at theirs and tell me if it has the intermediate "adjusting collar" and the two drain holes like the 1968 mirror, or if it has the center "oblong" drain hole without the intermediate "adjusting collar".

Please let me know the build date on your trim tag, if it's a Norwood or Los Angeles built car and the date code etched into the glass.
