16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 ivy gold sail panels on: January 25, 2014, 12:34:06 PM
This may be tough. I replaced my entire interior recently using Legendary Interiors. Their gold is listed as Willow Gold which I think is a Corvette color. They sent me a color sample in about a 1" square that when held up against my old door panels it looked close.(My original headliner was long gone) But, when compared in large sections, there was an obvious difference...its more light green than gold. I don't know exactly how the Ivy Gold interiors were configured as far as different colored components. Like, did the headliner color match the seat color? Or, was it more green like the metal dash? Do the sunvisors match the headliner?etc,etc...
The sail panels I got from Legendary were nice but I did have to reposition the mounting points. They didn't have the little metal pieces attached to the back like the factory, instead they had cardboard or fiberboard squares with holes for the clips glued on. I had to peel them off and re glue them so the panel lined up better.

I have a standard interior. If your interior is known original I'd like to know what pieces were obviously different colors or shades.

That engine paint sure looks a lot lower gloss than what I typically see on repainted ones.

If your preference would be a 4 speed, and the car has already been converted (tunnel cut), I'd make it a 4 speed with your 327. Especially since you don't have the original drivetrain.
I changed my original drivetrain 68rs from a 327/210 PG, 3.55 10 bolt which is stored in my basement, to a 327EFI M20(4 speed) with 3.55 12 bolt. That car is soooo fun and I can drive it anywhere in any manner and I don't worry at all about hurting the components.

ALL the parts are out there to make it what YOU want!

I watched my dealer shred all of its old records and deals from as far back as the 20s in 2005.

Chick very nice art work on the filters. You sound like you really did your homework on that one   Wink

Heck!, Chick's middle name is Homework!
I truly believe when his 68 Z28 is completed, he may be able duplicate the 68 Camaro AIM, only with date breaks, physical part/fastener variation and high res color photos.  Grin

Nice stencil job. I wouldn't mind having some of those for my street cars. I think Delco still sells the old red & blue logo AC PF25 or 35 for a premium.

Chick, that black logo AC filter is a re-painted WIX?   Shocked
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: So you think you have a Dana, Nickey,Berger Baldwin, etc...? on: January 18, 2014, 08:56:10 AM
Anyone know if there was much dealer exchanging going on back then? Where the delivered to dealer may be different than the selling dealer?

Very exciting info! I already know where my 69 came from, Eaton Chevrolet in Washington, DC, but I'm excited to learn more about my 68.
I've known my 69 was ordered and sold by Eaton Chevy for about 10 years now but, other than the building still there, I haven't found ANY other info about the dealership...no history, no ads, no promos or name plates...No nothin.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Z28 Pricing.... $75K??? on: January 05, 2014, 07:52:43 PM
Chances are that their target audience for the Z/28 already owns a Z06 and or a ZR1.
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This is a nice original 69 Z28 on: January 05, 2014, 10:23:44 AM
I would agree with Danny. If I had no Camaros and had the choice between two equal survivor cars, one with ZL2 and spoilers and one without....I'd choose Cowl and spoilers for the appearance. Then, I'd go shopping for the non-equipped car like this one.

Were some of the service replacement Rally wheels gray like "paint as required"? I thought I've seen some that way.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Quarter Window Vertical Chrome on: December 28, 2013, 10:37:14 AM
When my original chrome came off I don't remember any adhesive being on them, only a plastic or rubber insert. When I reinstalled them, I cut strips of a truck inner tube and wrapped them over the glass before tapping the chrome back on. The chrome went on tight and the rubber sort of squeezed out as it was compressed. I ran a razor down the edge to trim the excess. Seems to be working well.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original fan belt on: December 28, 2013, 10:00:45 AM
The A/C belt I took off of my NOR 69 had the raised print. It may have been original to the car.

Well, it's all in how one man or a group will define "restore", "restored" or "restoration". I think those words are used carefully around here.  Smiley

Charley, awesome gesture.

I agree.  Smiley
