Originality / 68 Camaro Door Hinge Bolts
« on: July 25, 2010, 10:31:14 AM »
Our 68 Z/28 had three different vendor bolts used in the door hinges. I took them off the car and cleaned the YY paint off each as we have started a restoration. We had "23", "P", and anchor type bolt head markings making up the mix with the "23" being the least (6 bolts).

I've got a hex one, but by the book I bought a square one and was going to change it out.  I'd rather not do that if I didn't have to.
I assume you did not have the orig. water pump if considering changing to the sq bypass???? And since the time frame for change was up in the air (at one time) I'd forget the change. I gotta obtain a hex one and glad I did not purchase a sq. one immediately. We ought to do a survey of our fellow 68 Z/28 owners just to see if anyone had the orig. water pump (what bypass) but sure Jerry has seen plenty.

What float bowl problems are you experiencing? Those Holley's are normally easy to sort out and would be worth your time & money to do so vs. purchasing a replacement.

Hi '68 Z28 fans, I know this will be a vague question but I do not want to walk into this clueless. I am on the trail of a '68 Z28 one owner car. I do not know much about the car other than it is Not an RS. It has the born with motor ,trans and 410 diff. Pretty much rust free Ca car, Flat hood gone in place of cowl hood and original carb changed to holley carb. She told me she paid 5400.00 new and her credit union told her she was over paying for it and she told them she wanted it anyway. It was a showroom car, she drove it off the lot. I know showroom cars usually are loaded or flashy in some way but I will know more later. Big question is can someone give me a ballpark on the value. Right now it's just sitting on blocks under a plastic tarp in her backyard.
First off, it would be difficult to believe she paid $5400 back in 68 when Camaro's were in the $3500 range +/-. That is Corvette money.... And the car would have come with a list 4053 DZ Holley Carb so it might have been changed to another type Holley but it might be correct afterall. No expert here for value but for anyone to give an opinion there is so much to know and verify like yes, it does have born with stuff, etc. etc, etc. So many times things were taken off that are expensive to obtain now notwithstanding the cost to do any paint/body work. Fair question but difficult to answer unless pics and information are shared.

Realize many belong to both sites (CRG & and several here have their cars on the list which is a handsome list of 68 Z's.
Here is the latest:
11D RPOL72 Ivory/Blk Vinyl/Gold std. int
11E Jerry@CHP White Survivor#351124
01B 68camaroz28 Butternut Yellow/Blk std. int.
02D sixd8rs Tripoli Turqoise/Turqoise int. NOM #388484
02E X66 714 Corvette Bronze/Blk houndtooth
03A SEK Z28 Matador Red/Blk std. In family since 1970
03A Jerry@CHP Matador Red #392050
03C zeds68 Butternut Yellow/Blk std. int.M22
04A ggtsvnv Lemans Blue/Blue std.
04A Jerry@CHP Dave Strickler's Ol Reliable #411100
04B 68RSZEE28 Matador Red/749 RS w/head rests

07A Dayton68Z28 Matador Red, cowl plenum #463934
07C Sonet Ermine White/Red std. (?)
07D Shupee Lemans Blue/Blu std. NOM #475449

One of the items not on our 68 Z28 01B built when purchased was the orig. water pump with the 90 degree bypass. Realize 67 Z's and early 68's had the hex head type fitting and then it was changed to a square head design. For our 01B which one would be correct and when did they make the change?

   68CamaroZ28  you probably have but did you know about this site?

It has a registry for 68 Z's and if you contact the site owner they might be able to help with how many still exist. They do have some data but the site has not been updated since 06, still interesting though.  :)

I was not aware that the above website was still in operation but glad it is. Noticed too it has been idle (no updates for years) which helped me assume it was dead.

68 Z28 05D.  I've got the original owners manual with a POP, but the dealers info and owners info were cut off of it.  Mine was about as plain as they come.  Had a heater and an AM radio.  Other than the stripes and wheels, you wouldn't know it from a  6 cyl. plain Jane.

Nothing wrong with that but many of us are very glad they had stripes.........  If anyone is interested this is what we have in 68 Z's over there. And yes, a few are the same as listed here.

I found out rather quickly that several members have 68 Z/28's with the question I had concerning date code on our distributor. But how many more are out there? I thought it might be both cool and possibly beneficial to know how many CRG team members here have a 68 Z/28 and when was it built. And any neat characteristics your Z/28 might have.
Our 68 is a 01B built Butternut Yellow/Blk std interior Z/28 with born with engine, trans, and rear.  Interesting note: Found the original owner through a 1972 charge slip that was under the carpet where the carpet folds over under the seat. Car was purchased at Roger Dean Chevrolet in Charleston, WV in late March/early April, 68. Shows you people were not standing in lines to buy these at the time either  ;D

Thanks for the info Randy and Paul! And neat to learn quickly of two other early built 68 Z/28's.  Might be asking my fellow z/28 brothers you something when a question comes up....... ;D

We just started to restore our 68 Z28 built 01B. We have owned this car for almost 30 years and knew way back when that it had it's born with engine, trans. and rear. Had even checked out other items like the dist., alternator, etc.... The only thing changed was the water pump and the ex. manifolds had been removed as the first owner told me he purchased headers. Didn't a lot of us put them on way back when! ;D
Now where it seems strange is the time lapse between a few parts like the distributor and alternator. By the way, everything else seems logical and within the normal time frames for parts except the aforementioned two. The distributor is a 1111266 which I always felt was correct since our 68Z is a early build. Not sure how many 68's were built before ours but Jerry M and others have stated they are somewhat rare. Anyway, the dist. has a 7A25 date code (Jan. 25, 1967). I know they were not utilizing FIFO (first in, first out) but wow. Then the alternator is a 1100814 with of course the correct pulley but with a date of 7H10 (Aug. 10, 1967). These parts were part of the car again 30 years ago so I believe them to be original. We are doing the restoration for a trailer queen ride and some showing so my concern is a judge is going to say "no way" those date coded parts are too old to be on there.   Just looking for some information to support that this was possible or vice versa (no way)!
Anyone else have/seen this much difference?

The manual pitman arm on our 68 Z/28 has an embossed cast part # of "3935075 A" with a "GMT 10" below the part #. How many different manual pitman arms were utilized?
