16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: does this cowl tag & VIN match? on: December 01, 2013, 02:02:28 PM
That's a real early car. I haven't seen that build date before, but it is probably real. Got a pic of the tag?
Any drivetrain original?

Sorry my bad!   It was late last night when I was typing in the numbers and the trim tag date should be 08D  not 08A

The whole VIN is 12437NOR500026:  I'm got this from the owner of the car over the phone so I have not seen it myself.

  I don't own the car and it is VERY rough but the color and deluxe interior peeked my interest. Then I seen the O8D build date which I knew was early and it just kind of caught my attention.  It does have an engine(small block), trans (auto) and 10 bolt rear in it but I have no idea if they are the born with drive train.  It looks as if the rivets for the tag has been changed was the main reason I was asking & even as rough as it is I might try to make a deal and restore it.
  I have a picture of the trim tag as a word document but I'm not sure how to attach it on here.

thanks again!

  I was checking the decoding numbers section of this site and couldn't find an answer, maybe I missed it but I was wondering if the VIN number and cowl tag date  match up?

   VIN nor500026
 
  Trim tag date of 08A

Thanks

 Maybe the larger backing plate was a second gen thing as I had a 71 SS 350 that had the larger backing plate; however I don't know that it was original to that car.

  I have been looking for one also. This is the one that I'm close to ordering but have not yet.

http://www.derekweaver.com/rodders-garage/auto-rotisserie/w-rotisserie/

It seems to come with a lot of extras and has good reviews.  Does anyone here have any experience with them? or know anything other than what the web site has on it?

Thanks

I like JB plastic weld. Once dry you can sand it and it will fill in the cracks so once painted you'll never see it. Any hardware store sells it.

Another successful HAN in the books - and for those of us that live in the area, the addition of Barrett-Jackson was huge.
It was truly an event in and of itself that became a part of the much larger HAN festivities.

Nice additional benefit to the local economy.

agree completely !

  I don't know if it was me or what but it seemed like there were more cars this year.

I will have my red 70  RS/SS 396 at Grand Sierra.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1968 parchment interior? on: July 20, 2013, 04:59:28 PM
  Hi everyone,
 
   I was wondering about 68 deluxe parchment interior;  My questions concern a Grotto Blue convertible; First would the dash (around the gauges glove box door area; not the top by the VIN)  be Grotto blue like the body? or black? How about the dash pad?  I know the seats, door panels, and rear arm rest area would be parchment but what carpet would it have blue or black? Last what color would the steering column be?

Thanks

Others will chime in but I believe that the 4P code didn't show up until later then you November build date.

Can't commit on if the color is correct but it sure looks pretty to me!

Maybe this will help reunite a car and engine. I don't know anything about it other then what the add says. It's not mine but hope it can help someone.

27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: early vs. late 68 Front spoiler on: June 01, 2013, 09:35:39 PM
my next question is do the correct ones bend as driving down the road?  I have seen a few cars mustangs, cuda's and others where as they are driving down the highway the front spoiler is all bent out of shape from the air hitting it. Always looked bad to me and while I want my car to be correct I don't want to look like a cheap Ford or Mopar L.O.L..

28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: early vs. late 68 Front spoiler on: June 01, 2013, 03:35:36 PM
Does anyone have a picture of both spoilers installed?  I thought there were two different ones also, but if not I would like to see how both fit and look.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / How rare is tripple blue 68? on: March 22, 2013, 03:57:23 PM
  I just picked up a 68 convertible that is triple blue: blue body (grotto blue), blue top, blue interior. Does anyone know how common this combination is? Or can someone tell me how many are in the data base? The car I picked up has no drive train and I'm going to make it a nice cruiser but was considering a switch to white (ivory) top and interior being it is not original anyway. However if the triple blue is uncommon I might go back to that. Does anyone have photos of a grotto blue, blue top, blue interior 68 to share?  I would like to see what it would look like.

Thanks in advance
30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / convertible glass ? on: March 09, 2013, 02:32:56 PM
 I have a question about glass in convertibles; I tried a search but couldn't find an answer.

I know the windshield is different but is the door and quarter window glass different also? or are they the same as coupe glass?

thanks in advance
