With BY, that top would look OK. But not with that interior.

67-8 had gold interiors. 69 went to green. Times were a-changing.

I just picked up a Kenny Ross RS/SS 350 4 speed 1968 Camaro.
Nice find Brian! Can you post a pic of the color? Thanks!

Over the years, I haven't run across special paint KR cars, but they are showing up now!

Lots of the combos look OK in person.
Gold with dk green looks OK and is common in other cars. Green with gold looks better, but no gold interior in 69.

Butternut doesn't work with those 714 seats....

General Discussion / Engine painting video
« on: December 18, 2018, 06:05:21 AM »
A much discussed topic. Here is actual video of the engines being painted in the factory. Notice the water curtain to catch the overspray. And notice the third guy painting the one engine blue (or black) and the next one yellow.
At 12:53 in

Restoration / Re: 69 396-325 hp starter heat shield spacer bolt

The replacement is the mid-70's heat shield, 361443. It has a notch on the top edge.
The $35 is the right one, 3954224. That's a lot better than I was finding.

Thanks for bringing this up.
IIRC, the 3954224 shield is missing on my car. Anybody have a good source for these?
NPD has them for $162! I found one place for $55. These used to be a few bucks from GM....

Also try James (FirstGenAddict). He has some paper knowledge and some experience with the sheets.

The repair bay at the end of the line was simple - fix and move on. There isn't room in an assembly plant to store cars - they get in the way real quick.

It is an atypical stamping. The fonts are correct and the cast date is correct. It could be an anomaly due to a process issue. Don't know, but it's not original. :)

Sorry, but I would have corrected that too. It's a serial number. Not sure if GM kept records for very long on them....

Yeah, it was a lucky find. Wonder what happened to CE9A50000 to CE9A89999, etc? Maybe those were assigned to the other engine plants?

General Discussion / CE motor stamping info
« on: December 16, 2018, 06:28:24 PM »
There's been a lot of discussions about the letters after the CE code, e.g. CE9A45361. I happened upon this page in a pile of documents.

General Discussion / Re: Whats a realistic price on a 67 Camaro bench seat?
« on: December 16, 2018, 06:22:35 PM »
More than $100!
It's a small market, but to the right person......

Yes. But again, there's nothing in the ad that gives a hint of the VIN, body #, or even build date.....

No defining info in that ad....

General Discussion / Re: Factory Production 69 Camaro JL8 L-78?
« on: December 15, 2018, 10:39:40 PM »
Year ago I got a call from a kid in Detroit about some parts I had for sale.
He asked where to get rotors. Anywhere. But these are the larger rotors. Yup, JL8. Prior owner pulled the axle and the 302. Was candy apple red, if it's still around....

« on: December 14, 2018, 07:17:24 AM »
Which is exactly what i am saying. Both plants produced other models along side the Camaros.
Actually, no. Norwood only produced the Camaro in 67-69 with the Firebird added later in 69.

Attached to original boosters would count. :)
