I bought an original JL8 car for $1800 in 1976 stripped out everything I wanted and sold it for $1800.

Recent purchase from HBC, part was wrong, they admitted it was their fault and would not take care of the situation to my satisfaction. I did not ask for the world, just expidited shipping on a very small item, to finish a project. I have been in business for 25+ years and deal with many vendors both business and hobby. I was very disapointed at the poor response, and rude treatment I recieved. 2nd bad experiece with them, shouldn't have given them another chance. Never again.

In late 72 my 69Z already had headers on it, thus the cable kit would not work, the dealer checked with someone up the chain, and installed new motor mounts. I'm assuming they were interlocking.

When I bought my car in 1975 it had a 600 Holley and a dual point aftermarket distributor installed on it. Before I left I asked if he had any other parts for the car, I walked out with the original carb and distributor. Guess it never hurts to ask!

Are people paying that kind off money for real 1111480 distributors?

General Discussion / Re: Chambered Exhaust Option - 69 Z
« on: April 03, 2012, 12:18:58 AM »
I have a set of resonators which I purchased in 76 from GM with my chambered system I mistakenly believed they went with that system. Having no use for them I welded  a set of header reducers on the inlets and used them a couple of times to test an open header car on the street. I'm pretty sure that the reducers can be cut off without hurting the resonators. If anyone can use them, I'll dig them out and take a look to be sure. Send me a PM or e-mail if you can use them.

69 302's didn't have interlock mounts from the factory did they? I had to take mine in for a recall, the dealer installed them.

My car is a 12C LA car, it has what I believe to be an original tire on the spare. Good-Year.

Did he change the rearend also?
Thanks for the info, it appears to be exactly what was done to my car.  There is a small piece of brake line that had to be modified for the JL8 brakes to be used.  My father-in-law took JL8 front brakes off his wrecked Z28 and put them on the Z28 I am restoring.

I did this changeover in the mid 70's. Took everything off of the JL-8 car down to the spindles. The front brake lines were different also, took them all the way back to the master cyl.

My 12C California car came to me in 75 with a 12/18/68 YH wheel and original tire in the trunk. The other wheels had been changed.

Hotchkis is the way to go, my son was going to put Competition Engineering on His 67 and he would have had to pound the heck out of the floor. Sent them back and got the Hotchkis, they fit great.
