2041  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67ss frame off restoration on: June 18, 2006, 10:49:16 AM
Not surprised you are having a hard time getting a $$$ answer...
The answer to your real question, "How Much?", is actually very subjective.  It also depends on who wants the car and the size of their wallet.  Then again, there is the question of availability in your area...
If you are not prepared to do a great restoration, these guys are right!  An original car is a wonderful thing to find!  Assuming the car is in great shape, it could bring as much as $23,000 unrestored in my part of the world, which is NC.  A show car (good restoration) could bring $27,000.  Could you bring your car up to show level for $4,000... maybe not....
But again, that's my informed, but subjective, opinion.
2042  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anyone know what a factory 427 goes for nowadays? on: June 18, 2006, 10:34:36 AM
I have no doubt that your friend's motor came out of a truck.  I had to replace the motor in my S-10 last year and my local mechanic told me there was a 427 available.  Needless to say I declined...
There is a 67 427 Vette Tri-Power on ebay right now.  The bidding ends today, and right now with 11 bids it's at $9500.  Of course it could go much higher.
Chevy High Performance has an article on their web site that lists a literal 427 "Brute" (550hp) at turnkey for about $13000.  I ran across this the other day, but not sure of the date of the article.
2043  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Camaro Clubs in England??? on: June 03, 2006, 01:16:51 PM
Does anyone know of any Camaro clubs in England?  Especially southern England?
Looking for the web sites, but had little success...
Thanks in advance.

That's right.  Sorry, Bob, when you said your car was an SS 350, I assumed you'd know to use that button (from out of the SS buttons available).  The Camaro promo I listed is a deluxe wheel, which did just have the SS.  I should have been a little more specific.
2045  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Looking for a 1969 Camaro coupe on: June 02, 2006, 03:38:58 PM
I've talked with those guys several times.  They seem to be "straight up".
2046  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Missing Cowl Tag for 67 Convertible on: June 02, 2006, 08:07:35 AM
Start by researching this site:  --especially 9. Spources and 10. History

Without the cowl tag it is an uphill battle.  81 may seem like a long time ago for you, but I can assure you there were great looking clones in the 70s.  You need to find what other numbers you can.  Start with [from General Info. sources] Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9.  Post what you find in Decoding.

In any case, you have the potential there for a great car.  Good luck and post what you find.

BTW, take a look at Ed,s post about sources in this thread: 

2047  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Door locks won't come up with the key? on: May 29, 2006, 07:45:34 PM
...Not exactly the same discussion, but before you start taking the doors apart take a look at this and the previous one it refers to.
2048  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: emblems on: May 27, 2006, 09:24:27 PM
SS for both
2049  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: '68 mutt on: May 27, 2006, 08:58:52 PM
Lots of mutts turn out to be great drivers.  Got one myself.

And I quote (from General Information):

"Critical printed references that the CRG recommends that you investigate include the following:
Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9
This is the "bible" of major vehicle components. Separate chapters are included for each of: engine, crankshaft, head, rod, piston, carburetor, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, water pump, distributor, camshaft, alternator, transmission, rear axle/differential, wheels, and Rochester fuel injection. This has had various printings, each with slightly updated and/or corrected information. As of August 1998 the latest printing of this volume was the 1997 4th printing - look at the rear of the book to find a printing difference summary. The major limitation of this work is that it only covers V-8 engined models, though certain components are also applicable to vehicles with L-6 engines.
Chevrolet Camaro Assembly Manual (for your year of interest)
Available as a reprint from the major Camaro parts suppliers. Loose-leaf versions are often preferred for insertion in a three-ring binder."

But now I understand why you asked about the mythical 327 SS in your first post.
2050  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 LM1 article on: May 27, 2006, 03:21:45 PM
Great article! Thanks Kurt!
Some of us were just looking for LM1 info. a while back!
2051  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ...your opinion??? ...I have POP, is for sale elsewhere... on: May 25, 2006, 05:18:48 PM
Kevin, Good for you!  You're in position to do what is best... and right...
2052  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need help before buying (cowl Tag info) on: May 25, 2006, 05:07:44 PM
Tell us something about the car... what kind of shape is it in..?  what's the asking price...?  Huh
Joe and Dave decoded the tag for you, but if you are really looking for a 69 take a look here : 
and here:
snd here:
If you are new to this, you want as much info. in hand as you can get when you are out looking!
Good luck!  And seriously, share info, about the car...  Grin Grin Grin

And whoops!  Roll Eyes  If you share info. beyond the numbers, we really ought to take that to General Discussion.
2053  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ...your opinion??? ...I have POP, is for sale elsewhere... on: May 25, 2006, 11:43:55 AM
I see your dilemma!  And on initial reaction, I would say "Surprise the new owner".

But my second and third thoughts are based on some questions:
As the car is being offered now, is it a reasonable price? 
Do you know something about this dealer that makes you wary?  (Yes, I know even the nicest dealer would increase the price on a documented car!)
Once the car is sold, do you think (or have some way of knowing) the dealer will reveal the buyer?  (If you ask the dealer now, he would be a fool to not ask "WHY?")
Since you have such information, is your ultimate responsibilty not to make sure that the information does not get lost?

2054  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 23, 2006, 07:12:15 PM
Again, remembering what John said...
The October 1967 P&A says, "62-68 Chevy, Camaro, Chevelle... CAP ASSY., oil fliter (tube guage)... 5690846". It makes no mention of 7803820. And that's not a misprint. It does say "filter" for 5690846.
2055  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Ethanol in the tank on: May 22, 2006, 09:40:40 PM
Golden Eagle's "STA-BIL" is only one of several gas stabilizers you can and should use --if any gasoline powered motor is going to sit for a long period of time.  Ethanol or not, gasoline can eventually "break down".  If you do drive it once a month for several gallons, you are probably OK. 
If you are that concerned about your tank (I have seen tanks that sat for a long period of time that looked great on the outside but were all rust and sludge on the inside.) consider cleaning it or having it cleaned professionally.  Look at this from Chevy Trucks:
If your car sits a lot and/or you do not drive it many miles a year, you should also be changing your oil by the calendar, not just by miles.
