I just read a post on the San Francisco Craigs List for a 4 speed trans. listed as an M-22. The VIN # is for a 1968 Camaro. The date code is P8A23c. Maybe it can find it's original home.

Thanks, Dan

Sorry guys, but the car is 6 plus hours from me so I can't look at the known hidden clues (like a speedo hole). I'm trying to determine if it's worth the trip too look at it. My understanding of a 67 trim tag is, that in the case of an original 4 speed it would have a 2L designation. Since this car does not have the 2L, but had a 396 (4N), then it should be a TH400 right? Thanks, Dan

The trim tag has 742-z for red deluxe bucket seats, and 2G for a console, so no column/bench. The car was used for bracket racing and the owner says it was a 4 speed car but it has a TH400 in it currently (probably has 4sp pedals in it). He sent me a picture of the trim tag and there is no 2L designation but it has the 4N. I was pretty sure the TH400 was all you could get for an automatic with a BB. Evidently the original engine is long gone, but the car has several options including: tinted glass, remote mirror,fold down rear seat, rear defrost etc. I'm sure most of those things if not all are long gone since it's been raced off and on since the 70's. The good thing is the body is preserved. I'm trying to figure out how much to offer for it as I think it could be brought back to it's original glory. Thanks, Dan

Hello,

I've recently run across a 67 Camaro with no transmission designation on the trim tag and it has a 4N code for an SS 396/325. Am I correct in assuming that it came with a TH400 originally? If so, how rare is that compared to a manual trans. combo with the 396? Thanks, Dan
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct color of the nose stripe (bumble bee) in 68 on: April 03, 2008, 08:29:17 PM
Thanks for the replies. I talked with him again, and he was leaning toward the semi gloss, but I told him again that I was pretty sure it should be gloss. Now after reading your replies, he's agreed to do gloss. Even the header panel will be painted off the car so the stripe will continue down the edges, which will be even more correct. Thanks again, Dan
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Gorrect color of the nose stripe (bumble bee) in 68 on: April 03, 2008, 09:08:45 AM
Hey guys,

I have a friend getting ready for paint on a custom 68 car, but he is going for a factory exterior color combo. The car will be Matador red with a straight nose stripe (like 67). The car is having the tail pan blacked out and the lower doors and rockers due to the ss/rs 396 look he's going for. The question we have is, I've read where the rockers and tail pan are to be semi-gloss black but I can't find any info on the nose color? I always see them gloss black at shows on recently done cars but what's the correct from the factory look? He's afraid it would look funny to have a gloss stripe with the other areas in semi-gloss? Thanks in advance for the help,

Dan

UPDATE:

I spoke to the seller via e-mail and his car was stolen in 2003 while under resto at someones shop (ouch!). He did sell the engine to someone in Cal. who was also buying a 68 z without engine and trans. the same week. He said the car was dark blue/white stripes with black int. rallys etc. Calif. Lic. plate #WQL 799. He said the plates will come up as stolen. Thanks, Dan..........keep 'em locked up!

Hello,

Saw a posting for a fairly complete 68 z engine, block stamped with MO. Says it has a 610 intake, dz carb etc. Does not list the VIN. Search the SF Bay Area listings for 1-10-2008. Shows it's located in Turlock, Ca. Also still has an M20 bolted up to it. Maybe it will find it's correct home. Thanks, Dan (wish I had the car!)
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct "elbow" for RH valve cover to air cleaner on a 68 275 hp 327? on: May 02, 2007, 08:28:48 PM
Jeff68,

Thanks for the great pics. Nobody re-pops these yet?? With all the other hoses out there it semms like this would be somewhere. Anybody know?? I also noticed you have your small vacuum line running to the front of the q-jet. Is that the correct spot? Also it looks like a hard line too? Just curious.

Thanks, Dan

Hey guys,

I finally tracked down an original q-jet 68 air cleaner and need the correct passenger side elbow set up for the breather. Anyone have any pics of a survivor as well? Thanks, Dan

Paul,

Yes I did get the one from Ricks. I think it still may be a groud issue. But I wanted to make sure that it was not related to the Petronix conversion.

Thanks, Dan
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Petronix distributor conversion with TIC TOC Tach on: April 23, 2007, 10:58:13 PM
Hey guys,

When I assembled my car, I had installed a Petronix HEI conversion within the stock distirbutor. My tic toc had only worked intermittently since. I figured bad ground or something simple right? Well I decided to change out the printed circuit while I was at it, as it was rough looking and now I have no tach. Since this car was built from scratch I had never had it running before the Petronix install. Would that have anything to do with it, or am I still searching for a ground issue?

Thanks, Dan

Thanks for the reply. I have used white lithium before but I was thinking there might be some magic stuff ;-). Brake clean makes sense. I'll give it a shot.

Thanks, Dan

Hey guys,

I have not found a discussion regarding the correct or suitable lube for window guide rollers and tracks. Also, what works good to clean the old crusty stuff off all the rollers etc?

Thanks, Dan
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 woodgrain ash tray+dlx hubcaps on: January 30, 2007, 11:40:35 PM
I paid $105 for mine about 2 years ago (off the Team Camaro site). I cringed at the time but someday we'll probably say, remember when you could get one for "only" $200? Hopefully smooth ones aren't that bad. Any sellers out there? Thanks, Dan
