Quick question, did all 67 and 68 Camaros with front disc brakes have 4 piston calipers? and didn't the single piston deal come out in 69?

Correct on all counts. However, in 1969 the 4 wheel disc brake option (RPO JL8) also used 4 piston calipers.

Guys, it would be best to PM jaybee and take this off the forum.

My understanding is that the stickers were put on all cars at the time of assembly, not at the time of any adjustment.
If adjustment under warranty was necessary, the dealer workshop had to remove (part or all of) the sticker and submit to zone with the payment claim, to prove the door trim had been removed.

That actually makes sense.

So, if a car has no sticker, maybe it did have adjustment under warranty. But all four?

Mine's a convertible and we all know what a PITA adjusting the glass on a convertible is so maybe all 4 had to be adjusted? Maybe at different times too, not all at the same time? You never know...

I looked at the stickers on the other post. Any idea what the numbers mean? Maybe the week of the year?

That makes sense too.

I've not seen any on my 05D Los Angeles 68, but then again, it may not have been in for adjustment.

How did you find out it was on EBay?

The CRG has been tracking these cars for 20 years (even longer for some), so we have histories on a lot of these cars. COMPLETE histories for some, and partial history for others.

Ok, the car was on ebay 10 years ago by seller martinautosalesllc our of Fredericksburg, VA. It was listed as a Z28 with a factory warranty replacement engine (see below). The only "proof" at that time was the glove box sticker that showed the E70-15 tires, but of course this could have been changed at any time so that's not really proof.. It had a Muncie transmission, 12 bolt posi rear axle, 4 piston disc brakes and a 6k tachometer (which appears to be a reproduction), but there wasn't any documentation mentioned.

There weren't any date codes shown in the auction so who knows. And by the way, back in 2008 the car didn't have the Rally Sport option (again, see below), so if it has it now, it's been added.

I'd be interested to see what paperwork you get and also the date and suffix codes on the transmission and 12 bolt.

Pictures HERE, and I believe this started in the 1969 model year.

PW is good for the front. LH for the rear.

There you go Buzz. I knew Kurt would know!

Thanks Kurt.

Yes I did Warren. I'll fix it. Thanks!

Which brings me to a strange question I can't answer. Why did they have TWO boxes for the rear shocks??? I don't know of any car that had one shock for the left and a different one for the right!

The shock absorber codes were included in the Chassis Broadcast Copy (see 1967 example attached - box 224 for the front - LG, and boxes 245 and 247 for the rear - LH), and yes, there were stickers applied to the shocks to make them easier to find for the guys on the production line. I don't remember seeing a chart or list of the codes, although Kurt may have some since he's got a ton of CBC's in his collection!

If a dealer installed this motor would they also stamp the block to match the car too?

most likely not. Dealers could care less about the "numbers" back then.

Without more information, there's no way anyone can place a value on it. You would need to post pictures of the car and pictures of the documents before we could even start to venture a guess. Right now, 1968 Camaro Rally Sports go from a few thousand to the upper 30's to low 40's depending on condition, documentation, options, etc... 1968 Z28's are going for probably double that, but again, it depends on condition, documentation, options, and if it's numbers matching or not. If I were to throw out a number, I'd guess a non-numbers matching Rally Sport in fair to good condition would probably be worth around $10k to $20k.

There were dealers that did engine swaps (Dana, Nickey, Baldwin, etc...), and the 1967/1968 302 engine was available as a service part (P/N 3923217), so it's possible. However, you'll need to go through the paperwork to see what he has.

BUT!!! This would have been an expensive way to get a Z28! It would have been much cheaper for the original owner to order the car from the factory than to go through all this hassle and expense of buying a non-Z28 then having the dealer order the engine and install it!

What's the VIN?

No, that won't really help. What we need is a picture of the front pad behind the alternator and under the two heater hoses! You may have to remove the alternator to be able to take a good shot.
