Where does the white one come in?

That trans is from a Fremont built car... it has a Z in the Vin...
1068  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Can someone look at the paperwork on this one? on: February 29, 2008, 02:17:51 PM
Wow... that seems to be a very original car... I question whether it has even been painted.
The spare tire alone is worth a mint...
If the car is original as it appears it would be nice to see at the Camaro Nats next year...

The repo bubble tope also has larger holes... for bolts not for the original rivets

I'm really going to muddy the water up here. What yould you do on a cowl plenum car and factory headers. They were in the trunk and now they are on the car and thats not the way it left the factory. They were sold and have a rpo # so they were intended to be used on that car. Would it be ok if the car had a dealer invoice stating what it had. What happens when you didn't have the invoice

Then you would have to leave off the Center caps and trim rings as well...

Anyway... there are way too many over restored cars around... none were as nice as the restorations... too many guys want them perfect... not the way they were from the factory.
I would rather see them restored with the imperfections... you would see alot of people falling out and saying this or that is not right... or the paint doesn't match from door to fender...etc

That's it... the first batch of 50 Yenko's (X66 Cars) were built beginning in January.

The tag looks out of place on the firewall... it looks newer. looks as though it was changed after the car was "restored"
1074  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.
1075  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...
1076  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.
1077  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 Z motor mounts on: February 26, 2008, 05:31:04 PM
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...
1078  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Black Z28/RS Grill on: February 26, 2008, 04:25:03 PM




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
1079  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wire routing on: March 14, 2007, 08:43:59 AM
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.
