Restoration / OEM Glass & Windshield
« on: December 14, 2021, 04:50:35 PM »
Does anyone know of a good glass company-supplier for correct glass for 67-69 Camaro?  Paul's Auto glass is now retired and some of the other stuff is from China.  Trying to find a good supplier for a customer and a car I am trying to finish.

Thanks,

Jerry

Pocket porting is not worth the time or money.  Doing a "bowl job" is the best bang for the buck and it does not change the combustion chamber much at all.  That's good for about 30-35 hp.  We did Charlie Lingenfelter's '67 Z28 cylinder heads and with stock cam the engine was 400+ hp. 

FYI, Hendrick Motorsports is now doing our machine work for stock restoration rebuilds.  Jeff Andrews at HMS came up with a plan and it's working out well.  Now generating 10-15% more hp on the dyno too.  Hendrick technology.  What a gift to have an engine shop at the top of the food chain doing work for us.  HMS is also sponsoring our Stock Eliminator '67 Z28, thanks to Jeff Andrews.  Just living the dream here at CHP.

Does anyone know of competent vendor who can rebuild hood hinges?  I need new rivets installed for my '67 Z28 Stock Eliminator race car.

Thanks,

Jerry

I also posted many details about this car on my FB page.  This car could easily qualify for "Legends" certification with minimal work.

Sale price total would have been $200k for the white '67 Z, $150k for the red '68 Z and $200k for the '69 Z28.  That's $550k plus 10% to the buyer, grand total $605k.  I was there, this buyer wanted all three of the Bryan Frank Z28s.

My thoughts and prayers got out to John and his family.  He was a true icon to this hobby that we love.  He's done just about all there was to do professionally in his automotive working career.  His articles and hands-on experience to both the Camaro and Corvette world will live on forever.  I never got the meet John but we had many conversations over the years.  From drag racing to engineering to the restoration world.  He truly loved the hobby and the people who were part of the Camaro and Corvette world.  Rest in peace John.

Restoration / Re: 4053 Carb Ink Stamp Font?
« on: April 10, 2021, 03:47:30 AM »
Found a photo.  This is the correct 30cc accelerator pump for the GM Holley production carbs.  Even in NHRA's Stock Eliminator class where I compete we are not allowed to install the larger 50cc pump.

I'll post a photo tomorrow but yes all of the original carbs have the countersunk holes with clutch headed screws.  Here's a bowl photo from the survivor '69 Z28 I owned about 12 years ago, 27,000 mile car.

All of the original Holley's made for Chevrolet do have the ink stamping.  Here's another virgin from my secret stash of parts, dated 854.  I can also barely see part of the 4053 ink stamp on my 25,000 mile survivor Z28.  Some carb restorers are ink stamping carbs but the fonts are not even close to correct.

Gardner Exhaust has the most technically correct exhaust for these cars and it's the only system allowed for concours judging.

I'm sure that many or most of those L78 convertibles were bought my NHRA sportsman racers.  That engine combo in a convertible changed the class and bumped you down the ladder a bit over the coupes.  Case in point, Ray Allen and the LS6 convertible.  That car was undefeated at all NHRA national events in 1970 and won the NHRA world championship.  Yet the stick shift LS6 cars did not set the world on fire in Stock of Super Stock eliminator.

This Z28 just hammered at $127k plus the 10%.  Not bad for a much smaller auction house.

The black Z28 going to Greensboro is a nice car.  Not concourse perfect but does have nice paint and original engine and rear axle.  Black with red interior is very, very rare.  This car should break the bank.  Last fall, a driver LS6 with everything wrong including replacement trans and rear axle went for $135k there. 

Many clients are telling me that investors and collectors are back in full force with collectable commodities with the new administration in the white house.

The Greensboro auction has been picking up steam too.     

Get out the popcorn,

Jerry
