6-cylinder Camaros / Re: 1967 08D Camaro Coupe 6 Cylinder

Good news.
That car was very original, but it hit an owner who couldn't move it so pulled the L6 and put in a 327 and painted Z stripes on it! :(

HBC's vendor is Heatex Radiator.  Interesting, they are owned by LKQ....

Foreign Camaros / Re: Decoding Caracas Venezuela Cowl Tag

I think I was emailing a prior owner back in 09.
It had the original L65 350 in it, T0602HD.
I'd try Dupont or PPG and see if either can cross reference the code. It should also be visible in the door jambs and the floors....

No, these are different blocks. The other is stamped T0823JH. This is T0809JJ.
Could this be the real block? Be nice to confirm the VIN.....

I've said before that the trim tag is a reproduction. That picture clearly confirms that.

The picture quality of the engine pad isn't good enough to make a definitive call, but it looks sanded and redone.

Not a great picture, but it looks reasonable.

Axle is clearly a restamp.
Do you have a pic of the engine pad and trim tag?

Really hard to tell. It could be a rare TH350 trans test car, but everything has be changed.
Car has been restored - look at the springs and calipers and tie rods. Painted subframe and axle and rear springs. Engine and trans have been out - no paint on the oil pan. Firewall has been painted. Hood and hood springs too.
The Muncie clearly isn't original and I think the 12 bolt was added. The BX tire pressure label indicates it wasn't an SS.

Yes, that's the original cable and RC is the broadcast code for the drum brake system.

What do you see as the height and width measurements of the T, P, and B stamps? I see about 7/8" high on the T and 3/4 on the P & B, but it's hard to be sure.


Originality / Re: Rust prevention on bare steel parts

One of the TC & CRG members (Kevin W, ??) had pics of some steel coupons that he treated with Boeshield and a competitor. He hung them outside for a few years and showed the changes. I think it was on TC.
One worked much better at rust prevention.

And I don't like what I see with that partial VIN on the engine.....


Originality / Re: Recently purchased a LM1 Camaro RS package

White on blue, nice combo.
I'd be real curious to see the broadcast sheet. Very few of those survive for LM1's.
