General Discussion / Re: 68 z/28 question of authenticity
« on: March 22, 2018, 01:32:33 PM »
The car was on ebay back in 2008, but at that time no mention of Jerry's certification. Here's a picture of the pad (see below), and the ebay description.

1968 Camaro Z28 ~ 4 Speed
This is a very rare 1968 Z28 Camaro. There were only 7199 Z28ís produced in 1968. As you know, there are no real identification codes to prove that a 1968 Camaro is what it is. Those who do their research will see that all the tell tale signs show this 1968 Camaro to be a Real Z28.
It is equipped with:
CE Replacement Engine
4 Speed Muncie Transmission
12 Bolt-Posi w/Multi-Leaf
Very Rare Original 4 Piston Front Disc Brake Calipers
Very Rare Original 6K Red Line Tach
Bucket Seats w/Center Console
Cowl Hood
Front and Rear Spoilers
Factory AM Radio ~ working
Original Tire Pressure Sticker on Glove Box Door
that states E70x15 which is Z28 Only
This Camaro has a very solid body that seems to retain all of its original panels. There however is a small patch in the trunk pan, but the trunk is still very solid as it shows in the pictures. The interior seems to be mostly original and in great shape. It runs and drives great and sounds awesome with the relatively newer dual Flowmaster exhaust system. I would consider the paint on this Z28 a very nice driver quality paint job with just a few scratches and chips. This car is impressively solid and straight. There are new BFGs on all four corners. This Ď68 Z28 would make anyone proud to pull into the local cruises and shows.
Overall this is a great buy on a rare 1968 Z28. You also would be in an investment muscle car that you didnít have to break the bank to buy.

Tach looks new, not sure about the tire pressure sticker. Not worth anywhere near the asking price in my opinion (typical dealer markup), but I would contact Jerry and see what he says if you're serious about the car.

Restoration / Re: Rear drum brake backing plate questions.
« on: March 17, 2018, 01:08:23 AM »
All GM cars with drum brakes had the backing plate contact surfaces. They were there to keep the shoes in line with the drum contact surface and were to be lubricated with a thin coat of brake lube per figure 29 (see attached) of the Chassis Service Manual when a brake job was done.

1967 and 1968 didn't have the logo. That was a 1969 only thing.

Originality / Re: 1968 Camaro SS RS

See below:

1. Would the car have been equipped with a chrome lid air cleaner? Yes
2. If so, does any body re-pop them? Unknown
3. Would the car been equipped with chrome valve covers? Yes (no script)
4. If not, would the orange painted valve covers been a flat smooth finish? N/A
5. What would the yellow line and red line be on the tach? Yellow line - 4700, Red line - 5000, but read NOTE 5

I am restoring a 1968 327/275hp w/ac and powerglide. my question is on Rochester quad the # on the carb is 7037218 and the date code is 219 BC. what is the 219BC

I split your post to a new thread since it's a new question, but BC is the broadcast code. However, you're going to have to post a picture of what you have. The 7037218 carburetor was a late 1967 model year application, but the broadcast code was BD, not BC. The BC broadcast code was used on the 1967 7027218 carb. (By the way, the 1968 L30 automatic would have used the 7028212 carb with a broadcast code of DH.)

Decoding/Numbers / Re: COPO 427
« on: March 07, 2018, 10:03:51 PM »
You don't have a COPO. What you have is an L36 (427/390 with a 4 speed transmission) from a 1969 Corvette. The engine was assembled on March 3rd, 1969 at the Tonawanda, NY engine plant and the Corvette it came out of isn't in the registry. However, I've posted it over on the NCRS site ORPHANS SECTION for you just in case it ever shows up.

You bet Dan. And you want to talk hard to come by? How about the Cobra Head for the 68-69 Camaro convertible with fold down rear seat!! This one has the long bracket instead of the short bracket as shown in the picture above.

Dan, a lot of these parts were shared by other models and divisions, so even though they may not be carried by Camaro vendors, they may be carried by others. For example, CORVETTE AMERICA has the ferrules and boots on their web site (P/N 26154 for the front and P/N 26155 for the rear), as do other Corvette vendors. The boots aren't exact for the Camaro, but the ferrules are. You'll also notice they're made by Lectric Limited, so you might want to check on their web site too.

What would have been the correct lens colors for a '68? Clear in the middle and what on either side?

The Camaro front fender lenses were clear/clear/green (or green/clear/clear depending on what side you're looking at!), and the rear "Cobra Head" was red/clear/red. Note that the fronts also have R (Right) and L (Left) cast into the lenses.

The gaskets were used on Buicks.

Yep, that's it! Thanks Steve.

Hi Dan. Welcome to the site. That gasket wasn't used on any first generation Camaro but if I remember correctly, It was used on the Chevelle and full size cars.
