I agree with Paul, especially in terms of fit (and obviously, originality), go original if you can.  Beyond the E-scene, if you haven't discovered the best junk yards and swap meets in your area, you should.
I'd be afraid to quote you a real price, as they vary at swap meets, too.

We had a good conversation about suppliers a while back:
As you can see opinions vary...

"Choices"; i.e., options were part of the appeal in those days.  It was certainly part of the sales pitch --wide variety of motors and options.  Wish that were "truer" nowadays. 
1743  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1968 clonsole clock info on: March 06, 2007, 03:55:06 PM

The part number for a 68 console clock would be 3921410.
$200 may not be a bad price.  The list price for a replacement was $32.30 in the early 70s.
I'd say Paul made a good save from the "crusher".

Offer us an opinion and/or a picture...

Hey Booya420,
So is your car a genuine 67 Z?
Beyond Jerry's books, which are VERY helpful, look at this article by Kurt:
I found it very helpful in understanding the whole smog device business.
Gotta love CRG!  Grin

Ed and others,

Thanks for the help, so far...

$125!!! for 68 baffles?!?!  That sheetmetal shop is starting to sound like a good idea!

Again, seal #3937126 was sealed with two sided tape in 68... Does that tape look like the same stuff that is now on weather stripping?

A question and a comment:

Does anyone know anything about Infinity that just bought out Great American's Classic Collector's program?

As long as we're all reading over our policies (including those very important notes by Mark), watch out for "attachments" (those other pages or little pamphlets that they send along with your policy).  There are all sorts of interesting attachments that limit the company's liability --even if you have a declared value.  The most infamous is a "Lesser of" attachment (similar to Mark's note), which limits what they pay to a lesser amount --often tied to "Cash Value".

I want to pick back up on the AC sealing question...

Learned a lot from here:;all

The 68 AIM, C60/B3, mentions several seals... I've been hunting for over a year and nobody has any original to sell and I can only find seal #3937126 in repo.
Does anyone know a source (yes, even repo) of the other seals? (Am I just not looking in the right place?)
Does anyone have any more pictures of the various seals in original cars (Ed has helped a lot, thanks.)
We established in the above post (and from the AIM) that clips were not used in 68.  It was double-sided tape.  Can anyone describe was that looks like?

68rsss327 has asked how the seal went across the fender braces in another post.

I (and I believe others) would really appreciate the help!  Grin

68rs327conv, I'm going to take the AC sealing question to a new thread here in restoration.
Also, look here:;all
Ed posted a good picture of the seal going over the brace in that thread.

Ed, are there any more pictures --especially ones that show other seals involved with AC sealing? 

See my new thread:
1751  Site Comments / Discussion / Site Comments/Discussion / Unable to open attached photos on: March 02, 2007, 10:45:11 AM
For the last week or so, some of us (so it's more than just me) have not been able to open some attached photos.  Any ideas why or what we could do?  Do they expire?
1752  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Engine Assembly Stamps on: March 02, 2007, 10:43:21 AM
It's not just you zbo2.  I've been having the same problem for about a week now.
1753  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Car info on: March 01, 2007, 03:02:30 PM
What's the paint code from the cowl tag? (Whoops!  I need to get my bifocals changed... Thanks John, Sorry, Mike!)

Otherwise, it decodes like this:
69-12437 = 69 Coupe.
01C = Built the Third week of January; NOR = in Norwood Ohio.
711 = Standard Black Bucket Seats.
X44 = non-SS, non-Z28, without style trim

...not sure I would encourage you to clone...  Undecided

Take a look here:

(OK, one last post to give anyone still searching some hope...)
I wrote a "hat-in-hand" letter to the gentleman that goes the fartherest back in the info supplied by FDMV.  He turned out to be second owner and knew the first owner (now deceased) and the original dealership!  He also told me where the POP, etc. might be (3rd owner).  At any rate, I now have a full history of my car (even know about the replacement motor and body repair that I suspected) and it cost me $3.00 plus postage!  There is hope!  Keep looking and be polite...
1755  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: stickers on core support and fan shroud 0f 69 z/28 on: February 28, 2007, 02:51:58 PM
I'd say on the shroud.  In the 68 AIM when you look at C60/B3, which shows the seal, it would have covered the sticker.  Ed could verify this one for you.
