I'll keep you posted. Not sure how much I should bid on it though. What do you guys think? I took it to $500.00 and didin't reach the reserve. I think someone else went fishing to see what I bid and then stopped when they reached my bid and hasn't gone any further. I hate it when that happens.

To be honest, the older pics of the paint look silver. My gut said orchid at first until I read what everyone else had thought. Now I'm going back to what I originally thought, Orchid. That is going to be one unique looking car. Should draw some attention.

I corrected myself...I thought it was orchid, my bad. It's the same as mine. Cortez Silver.

If I was to look for those parts would they be hard to find? I have 5 sheets a friend gave me in 1975 from a HOLLEY CARBURETION VARIABLE SPECIFICATIONS AND PARTS counter book , page 81 and 82 showing the 4053 carb numbers, page 240 that has the exploded view of the 4150 TYPICAL VIEW ILLUSTRATION NO 34-1, page 241, 243 with part names and index numbers.

Fast idle cam is (136)41R-539 and the fast idle lever is (6)4R-852. The missing screw is not found. Just wondering if if I should waste my time on this or let it go.

This is the reply I just recv'd about the carb, no pic was supplied when I asked. Actually I tested the reserve ($500.00), yeah risky I know, and it hasn't been met yet. Not sure if I should trust it.


This is it's original 4053 Base plate. It has 3 vacuum sources, an angled 1/8" port directly under the primary float bowl which was used for the choke pull-off and/or smog system vacuum source, a 3/16" vacuum port on the right front corner for the vacuum advance, and a stepped 3/8" port on the right rear corner for the PCV hose. The Fast Idle Lever is missing, the Factory Screw is intact. Found one here on ebay for 10 bucks.

Go to your auto insurance company and just add liabilty insurance for it. I think liability is minimum for all states.

Thanks Ed. Still waiting for a eply about the missing pieces.

I was thinking Microsoft Paint would help with resizing but it doesn't. I use 'Irfanview' to resize my pics. Works pretty good in a pinch.



Gary,

   Took a couple of comparison pics between my Z11 and open element Z wings, but the file size is way big to attach. Definite difference between the two - if I can figure out some way to shrink 'em, I'll send them to you.

Regards,
Steve

ok, so a 934 wouldn't be out of the question? I'll send an email to find out about the missing pieces and the base plate.

NOTE:
I sent email just waiting for a response.

I believe Pontiac used it as well. Seen it on a 67 Firebird and a 65 GTO. Unusual color and unique to say the least. You have definately got to be confident in yourself for a man to drive a car that color as my dad would say.

Yeah John I made a copy for reference while I was researching these used emblems I just bought. The fender emblems are good candidates for restoring, really nice chrome but real faded paint. I just need to find what is being done to restore them and what paint. Not much of anything online about this subject and it seems like most if not all aren't doing it themselves.

Photos of my originals are in this thread:

Thanks fellas. I am thinking of putting in a bid for this carb. What do you think? I'm really looking for a 943 but haven't found a core yet in 14 years of looking. Everyone wants to sell me a restored one and I don't want a restored one. I want the patina to match what I have.

585  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Z28 grill and tailpanel emblem question. on: April 14, 2013, 08:58:30 AM
So far it appears there have been differences in IDing the emblems, whether they are original factory or service replacements, what part of the year they were installed, and how many molds with differing numbers, white spray in the '28' instead of silver. Might be a good add on to the CRG information base. Not sure if this is something that would need to be addressed. There are posts asking about pepple grain and non pepple grain steering wheels, which was a surprise to me. Never even noticed it until it was asked.

I still have to pull my grill emblem off and check. probably do it sometime today and post what I find. For the tail panel emblem so far 8745869 is on the 3 I have.
