1051  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Clutch recommendations for 1969 Z/28 on: February 27, 2008, 01:48:52 PM
I went with a Centerforce dual friction 10.4" and couldn't ask for a better pedal feel or grip... it works excellent and came highly recommended from many other 302 Z28  owners.
1052  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: what paint is used to paint the dash of a 69 Camaro? on: February 26, 2008, 08:31:59 PM


This is the difference in Suede and lower dash paint...
1053  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Where to buy "correct appearing" ball joints? on: February 26, 2008, 05:39:18 PM
Ricks sells the reproduction Bubble top Ball joints... they are painted black though... the originals were natural steel.
The bubble tops were used on 67-68 for sure but most original 69's I have seen were the flat top which no one reproduces... as far as I know. They are had NOS... and a Pair of NOS ones runs around $500 if you can find them.

Sounds like the tailshaft bushing in the trans... if that is what you determine it to be... take the trans out... I did it in the car... next to impossible...

The grille was molded in a bone colored plastic... you may want to paint it the bone/offwhite color then go back and paint the silver... here is one in a Survivor 69 RS/Z

That may well be an 11,000 mile car but it is no way a good indicator of how they were built... the whole engine compartment has been refurbished on that car... the hood latch is black painted, the inner fenders have been repainted as have the brakelines been painted black... the engine has been repainted the exhaust manifolds have been painted with cast iron paint... IMHO the originality of the engine compartment has been greatly jeopardized and it would take some very careful attention and lots of work to bring it back to the way it left the factory....
BTW... 68's with white interior had white handled knobs... not black...

Kurt,
Out of those 23 how many have their original paint?
The Black car RS/Z is probably going to go up for sale... but we may wait until after Carlisle... it has been invited for
the Vintage Certification Program.

Sounds like it froze... that happened to my boat when I didn't winterize it one year... made the 454 a nice anchor... live and learn... I was being lazy and it cost me... BIG TIME...
1059  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 302 DZ Heads on: March 11, 2007, 07:52:19 PM
$10... just about anything can be fixed... even if she needs to be sleeved or cracks welded up... if the engine is original to the car you do whatcha gotta do.

Jerry/Kurt,
How many other original paint Tuxedo Black Z's have been found?
I know that there is the 1200 mile black RS with stripe delete... so it would be a - - paint car.

1061  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / is this car in the DB 68Z VIN# 8N477646 on: March 11, 2007, 10:41:10 AM
Kurt,
Ken Shupe bought a 68 302 with this VIN# on it, he is planning on putting it in is car... it is very close on the Vin's but if the car has been located I am sure he would reunite the two...

I had mone machined for Screw-in studs (7/16) and guid plates... the 7/16 studs keep the valve train more stable.
1063  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / LA built Z28's on: March 09, 2007, 02:05:40 PM
If it has conole guages it wold have had a tach (rev counter) and a clock in the center pod. Most likely it was not a factory guage package car if there is no Tach.
there are punched holes in the firewall... in certain locations if the car in deed had factory instrumentation... find or buy a 69 Assembly manual and look in the front for hole locations and diameters.
1064  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / LA built Z28's on: March 09, 2007, 09:45:52 AM
Yes they made Z's in LA
1065  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: stripe question on: March 08, 2007, 03:13:39 PM
The Sequoia Green car was restored and recently sold in GA... (last 6 months) if anybody knows the whereabouts I would like to know, I am interested in buying this car.
