Sorry boys. I can't help. I've never seen a factory rosewood wheel with rivets.

They look painted on! Are you sure they're actually rivets??

Can you take better (higher resolution) pictures of the "rivets", and also of the back of the wheel at each spoke where it meets the plastic of the wheel?

Thanks

Sure. The diaphram will eventually tear and won't be able to pull fuel anymore.

That's what he has (the shipper). He got it from Jerry's book.

The shipper. I would scan it in and post it, but I would have to get permission from Jerry.

Dear x66ss396,

Hello, yes the protecto plate is slightly different, the last 3 digits are off. From what I was told there were often slight mistakes made when stamping the plates. The window sticker matches the car exactly and shows the same dealership as the protecto plate. The plate also shows the car being the same Color, Convertible, AC, Options ect as the car has. Plus the dealership it was sold at. So the chances of it not being for this car is very slim. It was most likely a mis stamp like I was told.

Boy, this guy sure likes to make up stories!

Here's what I asked him originally:

Quote
You show the VIN as 124678N433549 in the description and on the window sticker, but the protecto plate shows the VIN to be 124678N434704 and is for a 327/210 with a Powerglide! Did you post the wrong protecto plate picture???

His first reply was:

Quote
Just had to go look myself. The protecto plate came with the car when I bought it a few years back and I've had it in my safe ever since dont know how to distinguish the size engine or transmission from it. But the number on it is as you said slightly different from the Vin. Let me call a friend who knows more than I do and get back to you. This is the first time I ever noticed this. Give me an hour or so to ask him.


His second reply was:

Quote
I sent him pictures of the protecto plate and the vin on the car along with the cowl body tag and the window sticker. He said the the vin on the protecto plate although close is not correct although the color, interior, options, A/C, convertible and dealership is. So he said only thing he could think is maybe at some point the dealership mixed up protecto plates during warranty work or something because it's so close. I'm not that knowledgeable about them so I would have to go with his response.

None of this explains the fact that he purchased the POP on ebay a few months ago and the windshield sticker is a fake!

NICE CAR, but can the people bidding really be this stupid? The POP doesn't match his VIN and the Windshield Sticker is a reproduction!

POP VIN is 124678N434704 and the car is 124678N433549

Since the POP didn't match the VIN, I sent the seller an email asking him about it. His reply was that "The protecto plate came with the car when I bought it a few years back and I've had it in my safe ever since"

Well, considering that POP was on ebay just a few months ago (08-03-13 by seller fdgoodnight), it's a bit difficult to believe his story! So yet another ebay seller caught in a lie.

Was it doing that before you converted it?

73  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: amp gauge on: December 18, 2013, 10:17:18 AM
To test the amp gauge connect a partially dead AA battery (+ on pin 3 and - on pin 4), it should register 40 amps charge (depending on condition of battery), reverse the AA battery and it should register 40 amps discharge. I got one of these at Radio Shack for a few bucks just for this purpose (see below).

I recommend you don't use a new battery since it'll be 1.5VDC. The one I have I got out of my Cable TV remote when it wouldn't work anymore! It read just under 1 volt. Also, don't leave it attached for too long. Just long enough to see the needle deflect both ways.

74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: December 16, 2013, 10:21:46 AM
I agree with Kurt. A 3 on the tree is fairly rare because even the base 6 cars were usually ordered with the optional Powerglide automatic transmission. Two things you normally see on low option cars are Powerglide and AM radio. Interesting that this one got a tinted windshield, AM radio with the rear speaker, the exterior molding group and deluxe seat belts! Kind of a strange combination of options for a base car.

Quote
From what I here that it was a special order for a 3 speed on the column to be installed on a convertible.

No, the three speed manual transmission with the column shift was standard. Anything else would have been optional.

75  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 68 PP code axle on: December 13, 2013, 12:04:32 PM
In 67 the PP code was a 3.07 12 bolt open with metallic brakes. In 68 it was a 12 bolt open (No metallic brakes in 68). Look at the column for 68 at the top of the REAR AXLE CODE page. "MET" (metallic) is part of the 1967 section.

By the way, I split this topic from the other one.
