I know what you mean about the "fear" of working on transmissions!

I'm posting back to you to make sure other folks realize my suggestion was only about the speedometer, not the transmission leak.
Hey, you transmission guys... Help the fellow out!

Good luck!

In terms of #2:
Dab67 had the same problem with the speedometer being about 10 mph off.
Look at this post:

Not sure we really ever answered his (or your) question, but there are a couple of suggestions about where to start.

Good luck!

First, glad you are okay!  Second, equally glad you didn't have any significant fire damage to that great looking 67.

Your misfortune is a good lesson for all of us.  When I first got my 68 I had an auto electrical shop go over the wiring.  Even though the visual inspection looked okay, I still had them go through and clean up all the connections, etc.  It was amazing how much that improved the whole electrical system.  I knew the car had sat for at least a year or maybe a lot more than that.  Bad things can happen when a car just sits...

This also reminds me why it is good to carry a fire extinguisher in every car --classic and new.

Again, glad you are okay!

By the way, we got drenched the other week at the show at Lowe's Motor Speedway.  It rained like cats and dogs.  Not real fond of getting the car that wet.  At least, we did get a DPC plaque for our efforts

Green was a popular color in general in the late 60s.  While not that many may have been made, green on green was considered a great look in a car.

The 68 Illustrated Facts shows hub caps as standard for all models.  It lists all wheel covers (and notes "special for SS") as Extra Charge. I'm not sure about the RPO, unless it's P01.  But then I'm not sure how you got the SS cover (as opposed to 68 emblem cover), unless it automatically came when you ordered it with L48 or L35.
2136  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: COWL TAG HAS ME PUZZLED.. Is it worth while? on: April 11, 2006, 11:30:59 AM
It's sort of like grandpa used to say, "They aren't making any more dirt..."
If you post a picture of the cowl tag, also post us a picture of what the car looks like unrestored.  Your description sounds rough, but even if it weren't a possible Z28, it could still be worth restoring.
Yes, it costs money, but once you cut an old car up for something else, that's one more lost!
Take a look at thiis thread:
2137  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Style trim group on: April 10, 2006, 02:54:02 PM
This has a picture and description for a 68 "belt reveal molding"
2138  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Passenger side rearview mirror location on: April 09, 2006, 07:19:26 AM
Yes, and if you do not put it further back, you can barely use it, without turning it all the way toward the driver.

You might want to look at this:

Of course, my wife thinks the passenger side mirror is for her as the "co-pilot"...

Thanks for the opinions and votes.  Got some good, helpful information.  Grin Grin Grin

I went to a show this weekend and looked at 12 68 Camaros, some large block and some small.  You are right it was about half and half.  The size block didn't seem to matter, however.
Mine is a small block and straight forward.  I didn't want to force it, but it almost feels like it could turn across at the connection to 90 degrees.
2141  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 vs 68 seats - is there a difference? on: April 05, 2006, 08:59:27 AM
Take a look at this thread:
2142  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: SEMA ACTION NETWORK on: April 04, 2006, 01:40:23 PM
Thanks for the info. about SEMA.  We try to keep track through our local AACA chapter about legislation, but that SEMA site is much more thorough.  The legislators will listen to us if enough speak out, but they will also pass some very restrictive laws if our side is not heard!

I noted that you can copy info. off the site that may impct your vehicle.  I carry around copies of three NC laws (where I'm from) in my car.  You never know when you might get a rookie, who doesn't know that in NC: 1. I don't have to have an inspection sticker; 2. The car is exempt from emissions inspection; and, 3. I can have a 68 NC tag on my car as long as I keep a current tag in my possession.

So, if I drive my 68 into West Virginia on a Monday, I'll get the blue light special?!?!
2143  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Vinyl or Not? on: April 03, 2006, 08:22:26 AM
Well, if 34 persons can be considered an acurrate and wide-ranging survey, then I think I'll keep my vinyl top when I get the car repainted.  Considering some of the negative comments I've seen elsewhere, I'm pleasantly surprised.  Thanks for the input!
I'm going to shut this poll down next week... Would still like to have your opinion.
2144  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 SS350 Convert Insurance Value? on: April 02, 2006, 04:48:16 PM
John's advice to get it appraised is best.  If you have someone like Tophat John appraise it, then you do know what it is worth.
But you are under insured.  NADA and Gold Book value a car of your desciption for more than $21k.  The average price for ALL 67s on Hemmings is $5k more.  There is a car similar to your description on Hemmings that is asking $47k!
They aren't making any more of them (except clones, etc.), so ask yourself the age old insurance question:  What would it cost you to replace it?
2145  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: L30/M20, ...2nd chance, you think it's worth $1500 on: April 02, 2006, 04:19:08 PM
Does the motor run?

Think about it... even if the body is shot... IF YOU WILLING TO PUT UP WITH THE HASSLE, the motor, transmission, rear end and any other parts you salvaged could net twice or three times that.  Then, there's the whole restoration issue.
You're already asking the real question:  Do you want to get involved?

You could certainly be doing the hobby a favor!
