It amazes me how some cars that are not perfect attrach the biggest money. That Old Reliable has a solid history and is correctly done and still the high money goes to cars with what I would call questionable restorations. I am sure someone will pay you what the car and it history is worth. Good Luck  

Many folks don't give a flip about history...

68's did not have cowl hoods.

The '69 cowl hood fits '67 and '68 Camaros

A company is selling them for $179 on ebay. The company "Tamraz's", has sold a bunch of 'em, and has a high rating on ebay. I know, I know, you get what you pay for...but these are guaranteed excellent in fit, and look great in the pictures. Anybody know anything about these?  Undecided
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Exhaust manifold removal... on: January 07, 2008, 04:58:36 PM
My '68 327/210 Camaro has a cracked exhaust manifold(passenger side). I have a replacement, just need to put it on. The car has factory air and little room to work from the top. Can this be removed from the bottom? Or should I remove the factory AC and take it out from the top?

One other consideration. I could just go ahead and put headers on this motor. The motor's mostly stock. I would definitely want a small tube diameter header. Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you checked out Jeff Lilly Restorations?  I don't have any experience with them, but their work looks nice.
Check out the web site:  http://www.jefflilly.com/

WOW Thanks! This place is about a half hour away from where we deer hunt. I'll check him out!

I thought there were no factory bumper guards on 1968 Camaros?

Incorrect.

Items not available from the factory on any 1968 model included:
Rear sway bar
Radius rod/traction bar
Rear axle disc brakes
Small bumper guards (as used in 1967 and 1969)
Fuel return line
Cowl induction hood

You're right - but according to this site only the large bumper guards were available in '68

You all know that Rick's was bought by Eckler's? They also charge for sameday shipping, $3.95. Rick's use to ship everthing the same day for free. Ground Up Restorations is a good source also. Muscle Car City in MI is OK also.

Figures - Eckler's SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1968 Camaro restoration on: November 18, 2007, 09:33:13 PM
I have owned my 1968 Camaro since 1989, and have rebuilt the engine/tranny, as well as had it painted its original color and added front/rear spoilers, as well as the correct GM 14x6 rallys over the years. The car is numbers matching w/82,000 miles, and I am considering a complete restoration as at this time in my life, money is not so much a problem as time is. I would like it restored by a shop that specializes in first generation Camaros, or at least F-bodies. I live between Houston/Austin, but would not be opposed to taking it to San Antonio or Dallas, or even somewhere else in Texas if needed, to be restored. Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Lance in Brenham, TX.

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / WARNING - Ecklers Camaro experience I recently had!! on: July 14, 2006, 03:33:42 PM
I recently ordered 2 cans of "Eastwood Argent/Silver Rally Wheel Paint" from Ecklers as I am restoring my 14x6 Rally's for my 1968 Camaro. Well, when I opened the box yesterday I had 2 generically label cans of "Ralley <sp> Wheel Paint", definitely not the Eastwood paint that is pictured on the website. The can is not even the same size/weight. When I called Eckler's today, they told me that they changed vendors but the paint in the can is the same. WRONG! It is not the same, it DOES NOT spray or look the same as the Eastwood paint I thought I was purchasing. P.S. Eastwood was very interested to find out that Eckler's has a picture of their rally wheel paint on their website for 40% less than they sell it for themselves! The Eckler's Camaro folks are WEASELS in my book!
