601  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What other rear end differentials will fit a 69 Camaro? on: May 04, 2006, 03:29:18 PM
What, if any, other donor cars can I look for to get a rear end that will fit a 69 Camaro?  I don't care about the perches as I am going to cut them off anyway and install the rear with a 4 link setup.  I just want to make sure the width from wheel to wheel is okay to use.  Can I even go a little smaller and adjust it with offset rims.  This is for a pro-tour project with 17" or 18" rims.

602  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: 700R4 conversion in a '68 on: May 04, 2006, 03:25:39 PM
I installed a 200-4r in my 68 and it was the easiest swap ever.  I had to get the TH400 crossmember, the shift plate and shifter plate from shiftworks, the torque converter lockup module from TCI.  I got the tranny from a buick (I think a riviera).  It cost me under $500 for everything.  It was easy to do and the results were tremedous.  The 200 had a luxury car shift feel so I highly recommend a shift kit to firm it up a little.  It was installed behind my smallblock.  Not super high horsepower, but the 200 handled it fine and worked great.

I have the original article from Chevy hi-performance magazine from several years ago.  I saved it.  It has the step by step instructions and the list of suppliers where to get the parts as well as the list of donor cars to look for to get the tranny.  I will mail this to you if you email me with your mailing address.

603  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Anyone recommend an aftermarket front subframe/4 link suspension. on: May 04, 2006, 03:10:26 PM
I am completely rebuilding my 69 Camaro.  I want to get rid of the stock subframe and leaf spring setup and go with an aftermarket suspension with coilover shocks, rack & pinion steering, 4 link rear, new rear differential and 4 wheel disc. 

There are a lot of choices.  Has anyone used any of these brands and what do you recommend or suggest or have had experience with as far as installation and overall performance, and finally price?

The car is going to get a 502 motor and either a 5 or 6 speed transmission.


Thanks guys,

Steve

604  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: HELP with suspension upgrade? on: May 04, 2006, 03:05:43 PM
After installing new ball joints and tie rods and shock...I highly recommend upgrading to the 1" or 1-1/8" front sway bar.  It costs between $100 - $150 for it.  You wouldn't think this slight difference would make a big difference, but it really does.  It won't help with your bouncing (the other stuff will take care of that) but it will handle corners better and be a little more firmer in the turning.

According to my last search on ebay there were 37,865 Z/28's with the RS option for sale.

This may be a resolution.  I haven't tried it, but it may be worth a shot.

607  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / What other subframes fit a first gen Camaro? on: April 30, 2006, 06:52:20 PM
Okay, I know a Nova subframe will work as well as its brother the Ventura.  What other subframes will work on a first gen Camaro?  Anything late model?

608  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 69 Camaro metal dash replacement - will Nova work? on: April 27, 2006, 02:45:59 PM
I need the metal dash for a 69 Camaro.  I have located one for a Nova.  The glove box and ashtray look the same.  The gauges are different though.  Will the metal section of a Nova work for a 69 Camaro and fit the Camaro gauge bezel etc.?

610  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / X77 Rally Sport - is this possible? on: April 27, 2006, 02:38:02 PM
Okay, I need my head examinined...really.  After a full sub-rame off restoration on my 5th owned First gen car (69 Indy Pace Car).  I swore I would never do it again.  Ahh...how time heals all wounds.  I have forgotten all of the horrible nightmares and only seem to recall how much fun it was.  How easy everything went together and how very little money and time it actually cost me. 

I just bought a 69 Z/28 RS rolling chassis. It's an old pro street car, so I will have to remove the tubs and put back all the original sheetmetal back there.  The great news, it has NO rust.  NONE.  Very very solid body.  The trans tunnel is a little tore up, and the metal dash is missing (I will need one...anyone got one laying about?). 

Now...on to my question.  This car is an X77 car, but it has all of the rally sport items.  Headlight buckets, RS taillights and backup lights.  I thought the X33 was the Z28 with the style trim package and the X77 was without the style trim.  But I thought the RS meant you got the style trim.  I am inclined to believe that the RS stuff may have been added.  So, is it possible for an X77 to be and RS as well?

611  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Does anything seem wrong with this auction? on: April 25, 2006, 02:49:29 PM
Check out ebay auction # 8059805500.  Several things concern me.  First, it's a three day auction.  Second, the seller has a 0 feedback rating.  Finally, if you look at the seller's history, you will see he has sold the same exact subframe setup three times.  Three different auctions all with the exact same pic and different high bidders.  My concern is maybe the guy is collecting money only.  He said he would accept paypal, so am I protected if I never get the item?

any opinions are greatly appreciated.

612  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Plastic bezel repair service recommended on: April 24, 2006, 02:04:03 PM
I was taking out my steering column and broke the corner off of my gauge cluster bezel.  Not just the little tab that hold the lower plastic piece, I mean the whole darn corner.  Is there anyone out there who does this type of repair?  Is it any good?  Is it expensive? Is it worth it or should I just buy a new replacement bezel?

Thanks,

Steve

614  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Which tachometer is correct for the 69 SS350? on: April 08, 2006, 12:11:54 AM
I am looking at Rick's catalog and under tachometers, it has the following.

It shows the 5,000 rpm redline tach was applicable to the 307, 327, 350 and the SS350 but when you look at the 5500 rpm redline tach it states it was for the SS350 and the 396/325-350 hp motors. 

So, which one is correct for an SS350?

Steve

615  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / What options came with the Z21 style trim group? on: April 07, 2006, 10:04:23 PM
If you ordered the Z21 style trim group, what options did you get?

I believe these are the options, but is this all?  Did you have to get all of them or could you mix and match?  Was the fender and quarter panel pinstripe included with this style trime group option?  what determined if you got this pinstripe?  What about the blacked out rocker sills?

Z21 included the following?  Is this correct?

Chrome roof drip rails
quarter panel louvers
wheel well moldings
lower rocker molding
chrome headlight rings
blacked out rocker sill
fender and quarter panel pinstripe
