VI009DZ -

I'd be very interested in his car if the vin matches the vin on my engine.  Here's the thread about my engine:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1558.0

Tell your friend if he sells the car to me he won't be "losing" money on an engine.  Instead, he will be making money on something sitting around taking up space!   Wink  Thanks in advance.

John -

   Happy Birthday!  Thanks for the loads of information, photos, opinions, and expertise you bring to the CRG!  It is appreciated more than I can express in words!

Paul,

You hit it right on the money.  About a 33% increase in value on the car.  I might have a dated carb in stock, I just bought an 812 or 813.  I'll have to check.

Jerry -

   You state it increases a cars value about 33% if it has it's original engine.  Assuming I will never find the original chassis to the MO 302 I have, what would make more sense?

1) Find a date correct, original 1968 Z/28 without it's original engine and install the one I have?
   or
2) Since I already have a 1968 Z/28, find a date correct 1968 Chevelle, Nova, El Camino, etc. and build something fun?

I appreciate and value your expert opinion!

   I just checked my '68 Z/28 (I know you guys are talking about '69s) and mine is white too.  Actually, it has faded to a slight yellow color over time.  It snaps into a hole on the rear housing of the alternator.

Thanks Ed -

   When you guys get something completed, please shoot me a copy.  Since I've brought my Camaro back home, I've been finding a lot of first generation Camaros around.  Funny how that works, it seems I tend to spot the same vehicles that I'm driving more so than others.   Huh

The seller ended the auction this morning because of "an error in the listing."    Huh

Hi Ed -

   I've already emailed you the information you requested.  Let me know if you don't receive it.  Does the CRG have some type of "form" one can take with them on a car inspection so the relative numbers and info can be recorded without leaving something pertinent out?  I was thinking about creating one, but thought if the CRG had one already I'd go with it.  Thanks again for adding this Camaro to the database.  Hope the info proves useful.

Paul

Hi Frank -

   The information you supplied is for a 1967 Camaro, not a 1968.  In order to accurately decode these trim tag numbers you need to post the numbers exactly as they appear on the trim tag or better yet, post a picture of the trim tag.  Once you do that we can help you decode it.  Here's a link with some examples as well some info about decoding them:

Good luck finding your dream car!

It's a scam.

It might be a scam, but some sucker has already bid $100,000.00 on the first day!!   Roll Eyes

Hi and Welcome -

   According to Michael Antonick's "Camaro White Book" the 396 engine was added in November 1966.  Here's the link I found it at:

http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/story/67facts.htm

I also looked in an original issue 1967 Camaro sales brochure I have and the 396 engine is not listed on the "Power Team Combinations" pages.  Neither is the 302 engine.

However, on a 1967 Camaro power teams chart (engines, transmissions, & axle ratios) I have the 396 engine is listed.  The dating on this chart states "Revised January, 1967."  Still no 302 engine listed.  Hope this helps.
