1969 - Orphans / Re: DZ Engine
« on: October 23, 2017, 09:23:23 PM »
RonZ, please post the entire VIN. The idea of the orphans section is to reunite original drive train parts with their cars. Without the full VIN, it's basically impossible to do this.

6-cylinder Camaros / NOS 9029014 Carburetor
« on: October 23, 2017, 09:20:50 PM »
While we don't normally allow "for sale" or "wanted" ads on the site, I try and give 6 cylinder guys a break since their stuff is REALLY hard to come by!

Not mine, but there's an NOS 9029014 CARBURETOR on ebay right now with no bids, a starting price of $50 bucks and 4 days left.

Good luck!

We're not talking about the Z28 or RS emblems. This thread is in regards to the header and trunk "Camaro by Chevrolet" or "Chevrolet Camaro" emblems. Those have no black paint around the edges.

The emblems used on '69 Camaros did use the black paint around the periphery of the cars emblems...

I would disagree with that statement.

never seen mixed fonts sizes like this, Legit?

Yes, it's legit, but the VIN is 18L311781 not 18L311701, so I'll fix your post. Full VIN would be 124378L311781 or 124678L311781

Without the full VIN there's no way to know. We can check the database for you, but we'll need the last two digits of the VIN.

CHQ stands for CLASSIC HEADQUARTERS, so it's a repop.

Actually, if you look at the new auction it appears to ALSO have shill bidders? I've reported that one as well.

However, I HIGHLY doubt ebay will do anything. They don't seem to care anymore.

6-cylinder Camaros / Re: 67 Camaro 6 cyl 4 speed?

It MAY have been a dealer install. They LOVED to bypass GM rules and install aftermarket radios, tape decks, etc... More profit for them that way.

Yep. Possible shill bidding? I reported the old auction and invite others to do the same.

To report shill bidding:

Shill bidding is where the seller uses another account to bid on their own item to increase the price and they should be reported.
On the listing page which you are reporting you need to click on the blue Report Item,(above the Item number and to the right of the Description and Postage tabs.
Click on the arrow on the Report Category box,(it will bring up a drop down menu).
Click on: Listing Practices
Then click on the next box: Reason for Report and select Fraudulent listing activities.
Then on the Detailed Reason select seller is using other accounts to inflate item price.
Then click continue.
Then once the box with the listing number comes up,click send report.

Factory tape deck too.

That's not a factory tape deck. It looks more like an aftermarket deck you could get from J.C. Whitney, Monkey Wards, Western Auto, etc... On the same vein as THIS ONE from Sears.

Garage Talk / Re: L35 Carburator CFM

Did you read my REPORT?

Quote
The medium- and high-performance power plants received the Rochester "Quadrajet" (4MV) four-barrel carburetor. This included the 327/275hp, the 350/255, the 350/295, the 350/300, the 396/325, and the 396/350 engines. Rated at 750CFM, this was a carburetor that could deliver good performance out of the higher power engines when the secondaries were opened, yet still retained good gas mileage under normal conditions, due to the small primaries. Rochester carburetors were known for their simplicity and reliability.

From the ad:

I don't know if it's a numbers matching...

This is ebay speak for "it's not".

True X33, RS/Z28 Camaro

And yet no picture of the trim tag. Wonder why that is!

And yes, it sold, but look at the buyer. Zero feedback. It'll be back, mark my words.

General Discussion / Re: Big block Camaro oil pan
« on: September 19, 2017, 01:38:52 PM »
According to the P&A, all Camaro 396 engines used the same oil pan. The part numbers varied through the years, but there's no mention about low HP or high HP applications.
