Danny,

Could you post a picture of your original white vinyl top?  What sort of shape is it in overall? How has it bee taken care of over the years?

Steve and I are emailing back and forth.  Looks like he has an exception to what we had figured out before.
BTW, if anyone thought I was negatively questioning Steve from my post above, that was completely not my intention!  I'm actually excited about him being able to document an exception... That's one of the great things about CRG!  Grin

Dave,

I agree with Sam (which is the reason I didn't add anything above).  Knowing what you've said about your car (cruiser, et. al.), the 350/350 would be a good choice. One of these days, I'll replace my motor (which is not matching, and I know the original was lost in a scrape pile in Florida a long time ago).  But I'm waiting myself, because the 327/4 barrell I have is a great cruising setup for a powerglide car.

I also noticed on another one of your posts that you are starting to get answers to the issue of transmission and speedometer irregularities.  Let me (us) know how that all plays out.

Dave,

Hate to hear about the bearing.  That's the "excuse" for getting other things done.  (Had to do that on another car.  Let me change what I wanted to change and bring back to original what I wanted original.) Keep us posted on your work.

Steve,

Posting from a third-party site works better, because it shows the picture on CRG. (Learned that from Ed).
Take a look at Joe's explanation:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1643.0

I cannot tell much from the picture you posted. (Even saved it and tried to enlarge...)  Would you mind sending it to me in a PM?
1731  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Air Conditioning -Sealing on: March 18, 2007, 01:38:19 PM
Well, once again, from John and Ed I'm confident about the tape for mine.  My car does not have the holes for the pins.  It is good to know, however, if you have a late, late 68 those pins are a possibility.  Thanks for the verification, Steve.  And always, thanks CRG!
1732  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Air Conditioning -Sealing on: March 17, 2007, 11:13:39 AM
That is helpful Steve... But now you've opened the question about clips again... and pretty much voided the info. I got on another post at CRG... Do you know for sure that the core support seal on your 07E is original???
1733  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: March 16, 2007, 01:55:32 PM
Out?!?  Well, yes, for about 30 years...
But fake convertible?  In 68, vinyl tops outsold convertibles 3 to 1, and by 69 5 to 1.  Convertibles were on their way out!  Makes them rare and worth something today.
Don't get me wrong, I love convertibles.  I've owned three.  And yes, the right color of paint... the more the better.
Thanks for posting!  Anybody else?
About ready to put this one to sleep for a while...
1734  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ralley Wheel Question. on: March 16, 2007, 01:38:32 PM
Mine don't...  You'll get a rub every now and then in a turn or over a hard bump with those 15x7s on the front.  Not enought, generally to be a problem.
1735  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Firewall Number on: March 15, 2007, 08:29:39 PM
Thanks, John!  Am I correct that an assembly sequence number would be the "locked in" number that you mention in your report on the assembly process?

Sorry to be a little slow in getting back to this... Have to work every now and then to keep my toys up!

Last week I (finally) got original pictures from a previous owner before he painted the firewall in a restoration.  The 254 was the only such marking visible on the whole wall --just like you said.  Like Jonesy's 252, it was mostly covered by the heater box.  There was no sign of PTB markings.
1736  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Firewall Number on: March 12, 2007, 04:05:11 PM
On top of the blackout paint...
1737  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Firewall Number on: March 12, 2007, 02:04:50 PM
I know this is a shot in the dark, but anyone have any idea what the number "254" means crayoned on the firewall (near heater box). I know about firewall markings in general.  I just can't figure out 254...
Thanks in advance.

The problem with companies like State Farm is usually the agent not knowing what you are talking about.  (BTW, I have had my other cars covered by State Farm for over 30 years.)  Some agents seldom get a classic car request, and they wind up not quoting it right.

Still wondering if anyone knows anything about Infinity group???

There are several references that are constanly noted here...
Start here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#InfoSources
Also, Ed had a post a while back that gives several other good references.  You might want to hunt for that... or he might see this and post it again...

Thanks, Steve.  Actually, I've just completed the history of my car.  My trim tag says "YY", but the original owner drove it off the lot with a vinyl top --original dealer installed.  You make a good point about contrast.  In fact, the original owner had the top installed because it really set off a butternut yellow car. So, I'm keeping the vinyl and carrying my documentation to shows.
Let's hear from the rest of you... Post pictures and vote!
