Thanks, I had the carb rebuilt by Jerry McNeish but it doesn't want to idle. It acts like it loads up and falls off.

I am restoring a 68 Z/28. It has standard interior. The interior color is ivy gold. I purchased an interior kit and the rear seat shelf they sent me is black. Can anyone tell me if the shelf would have been black or colored?
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Tilt Wheel in 68 Z/28? on: March 08, 2006, 11:31:32 AM
Was tilt wheel an option in a 1968 Z/28? The one I have has tilt wheel and a different wheel than I have seen in any catalogs. The previous owners (all from my small town) claim that it was not changed.

O.K. I finally got to check the block that is rumored to be from this car. Here are the #'s from the block, the cowl tag and the vin.

cowl:        06B                         H257
         ST  68-12437  LOS 42128 BODY
         TR 722                     G-G PAINT

V.I.N. 124378L343505
ENGINE: V0423MO    18N425549

Could this be the original block??

Can anyone tell me exactly where to look for the "MO" engine code? Thanks.

I finally got the car to my shop and had a good look at it. The tire pressure decal does indeed indicate E70X15. There was one wheel that I was told was the original in the trunk but I could not find any casting on it. I have simply based that it is a 327 by what I was told from the previous owner. However, I may have located the original 302 block. The owner is checking the casting #'s and I should know in a couple of days. After looking closer at the car I am even more excited. It has the front disk brakes, the large rear bumper caps, all the original trim except for whatever was on the rocker panels is in very good shape. It doesn't appear that this car has ever sustained any major body damage. Every corner and bumper is straight! I can't wait to get started! Unfortunately work seems to interfere with progress.

I would like to know why a 327 instead of another 302. The change was done in 1975 and I think they had no idea what they had. At the risk of sounding completely clueless(which at this point I admittedly am) what are the chances of finding another 302??
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1968 Z-28 on: January 19, 2006, 05:58:04 PM
Well, I have learned that that is correct. However, I have also learned that the original 302 was replaced with a 327. They apparently did use the heads and intake from the 302. The 4-speed transmission and 12 Bolt rearend are believed to be original. I have learned that a local individual who I just spoke with purchased the car used from our local dealer in 1971. He them sold it to the last owner in 1974. I purchased the car today. According to this person the car was indeed a Z-28 and had 12,000 miles on it and was like new when he got it. Being from a small town (pop. 8500) I am inclined to believe that this is in fact a Z-28. This will be my first Camaro restoration and I am sure that this will prove to be a valuable site. Thanks for any input and I hope I am not crazy for purchasing this car!

Can I verify from the VIN that this is in fact a Z-28?
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1968 Z-28 on: January 19, 2006, 11:38:26 AM
I am considering purchasing a 1968 Z-28. I have watched the car sit for many years and have finally talked the owner into considering selling it. Can anyone tell me how many Z-28's were produced in 1968. In looking at the Old Cars Price Guide from Dec. '05 it would appear that the Z-28 is of more value than other models even though it has less HP? Is this because there were less of them?

Thanks,

Garve
