1186  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: IS my car a real Z??? on: January 23, 2007, 10:05:48 AM
If you bought the car out of Atlanta recently... yes it is a pre X code Z... I actually won the bid on the car the first time he auctioned it on ebay and then he did not like the price it brought with the no reserve auction... $2850...and he refused to sell it to me...  You only paid $2500 for it though Grin... I was looking at the car and it has a good bit of the original paint on it. It also has a set of matched 15" ralley wheels date coded for the car. It is a muncie car with the original white overspray down the firewall... Supposedly the car has 42k miles.
It has the fast ratio manual box in it... the car was out of Asheville NC and the 302 supposedly went into a street rod.

As far as I know all the 1969 deck lids got the holes for the emblem in the lower position... then if it was a D80 car the upper holes were punched and the lower ones were covered with tape... then the spoiler was installed.

My April 68 RS/SS 396 had Spring ring clamps on the heater hoses... 43k miles unrestored in the mid 80's...
1191  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 68 RS center grille on: December 31, 2006, 11:43:08 PM
I don't have a horse in this race although I have a fondness in my heart for 68 RS/SS's as it was my first firstgen. I also thoroughly enjoy the process of documenting and researching to figure out EXACTLY what is and is not correct... most people could care less though... I can not for the life of me understand their way of thinking... and they probably can not understand mine... it takes all sorts to make this world go round...

Good luck with your research guys... I will continue to help out when I see something...
1192  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: No X code on: December 28, 2006, 10:01:42 AM
BINGO... that indicates a Muncie transmission... or at least someone knew enough to put the hole in the approx correct location.

1193  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 68 RS center grille on: December 28, 2006, 08:36:14 AM
It may be restored but it is only a 20k mile car... it still has the original door panels, headliner, and looks to have original seat covers...  I would be willing to bet that it has an original grille... and it is a 3rd week of June car... with the horizontal silver bars. It is worth a shot...
They may be willing to help...
1194  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 68 RS center grille on: December 27, 2006, 09:52:18 PM
Here is a 68 RS Z that has a silver bar grille... it claims 20k miles.

1195  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Best source for resto parts on: December 26, 2006, 10:00:19 AM
I wish a Camaro parts supplier would do a rating system so we as consumers could make educated decisions on whether or not we wanted to buy something that was not exactly correct... Ames does it for GTO's and Firebirds and they have a VERY LOYAL following as far as parts buyers... they tell you upfront in the catalog... it is not correct but best available or perfect reproduction in every aspect... or somewhere in between... they are honest and if anything they probably under represent what they have, but I will bet their return rate is NIL...
better to have someone pleasantly surprised with what they get than to have them PO'd.
Underpromise and Overdeliver...

see if there is a hole in the firewall to the left and above (when looking at the firewall from the engine compartment) where the accelerator linkage comes through.  This would be the Muncie Speedometer cable location.
1197  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Best source for resto parts on: December 23, 2006, 06:43:03 PM
Does anyone make a standard door panel that is correct yet for 67-8 or 9?
One that actually has the ridges cut into the panel instead of using foam or batting and then affixing the vinyl to the panel?
1198  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: No X code on: December 23, 2006, 06:34:03 PM
Has the car been restored yet?
If not what color is under the wiper cowl... down where you can see the wiper linkage?
Also where does the speedo cable come out of the firewall?
Does it have disc brakes?
If not... does it have disc brake A arms? (sometimes drag racers removed discs and installed drums for less drag)
What does the hole look like that was cut in the floor for the shifter?
1199  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: CORRECT UNDER BODY COLOR on: December 19, 2006, 09:17:47 PM
Are you sure it is primer? I have heard that sometimes they cleared guns by spraying out on the bottoms of bodies...
1200  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Re-created suspension marks on: December 10, 2006, 07:45:39 PM
Inspection marking colors varied, based on what colors were available on a given day at the component plants; those markings were applied at the supplier plants, not at the car assembly plants.

So the castle nuts and cotter pins would not have paint on them...
