Without knowing all the facts, I tend to think, “What are the odds”?

We have Jerry, who has 30 plus years experience with an excellent resume a mile long VS a guy who restored a rust bucket Camaro into a “Cross Ram Z/28” and brought it to BJ to shoot for the moon.

Best I can do for you is 99 to 1.

there are a bunch of cool pictures on the Gibb site.

Royal Plum looks almost like black in some of the pictures

Maybe we can take away an important lesson from all this.

Have the car checked before it is restored and/or take a lot of pictures during resto.
Take pictures of stripped vin area, tag area, all dates anywhere you can find them during resto.

Same with engine block. In a restored car a deck stamp can look pretty good but with the head off it can show an obvious decked block.

If you have a original stamped un-decked block, be sure to take pictues of the uncut deck with head off.

Take pictures of the sheet metal dates, crankshaft date code, rear end gears, etc. anything and everything you can find. It can't hurt.

the SS also had a blacked out grill. To use a 60s word, it was to make it look "mean"

the top drawing looks like it is for a 3 speed trans
293  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Competition Plus body number 2479.... and correct arm... on: September 25, 2008, 10:09:02 AM
The #5325 is the 1969 Camaro OEM Hurst chrome round stick that presses in or (snaps in) to the shifter.

67-68 Camaro used the Muncie shifters OEM

The aftermarket Hurst flat chrome stick ( bolt on) for 67-68 Camaro is no. 4106
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Competition Plus body number 2479.... and correct arm... on: September 24, 2008, 11:54:10 PM
5325 is the Hurst number for 69 Camaro chrome stick w/ or without console

I would need a picture to ID the shifter. Hurst stamped numbers on parts but used same parts on many applications
295  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: 69 z/28 loses prime, any ideas? on: September 15, 2008, 07:44:43 PM
your fuel pump may be going bad
also check your float level adjustment
296  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: muncie shifter on: September 13, 2008, 05:28:45 PM
The spring and the metal cup (looks like a hat) is for the neutral gate return

The reverse detent has a ring shaped spring, a bushing, a pin, 6 balls, a C clip, a washer, and a orange plastic grease cup.

Did they have  "Muncie" stamped on the 3 speed shifter for the 3 sp Muncie trans?

I had a 3 sp shifter with Muncie stamped chrome stick but most 3 sp shifters I see
did not have the Muncie stamped stick

I have seen the shifters but not with the car attached
298  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original #s matching SS muncie 3 speed on: July 22, 2008, 04:15:27 AM
does it have the original 3 sp Hurst shifter with the round chrome stick?
 
I have seen a bunch of these over the years at swap meets and ebay so there must have been a good number of them sold
299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Lacquer or BC on: July 15, 2008, 12:33:30 PM
 my Chevelle has a 10+ year old lacquer paint and held up well except has some chips on the rocker panels. I never waxed it once just use a very light hand rubbing compound on it
300  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Questions about trans on: July 15, 2008, 10:58:31 AM
upshift/downshift also depends on rear end gear ratio

In the 70s I bought a 1963 Impala 4 door 327 4bbl (i  think ) 250 hp with PG.
I bought it just for the engine but drove it for the winter and that thing would downshift at high speed and that 327 would screem until it up shifted again.
