Nice car, Does the battery hold down clamp have the 2 dimples on the top lip.
All original battery hold down clamps I believe to had the two dimples and yes this Z/28 has the that type of two dimple battery hold down clamp. Actually a hard item to locate! This is one of mine but the type of two dimple clamp we are referring to.

Chick, Does it have the 4 clip trim rings? or the Serated/finger type?
I looked at the two on the left side of the car Mike and they both were the serrated finger type.

Awesome! May have missed it, but does this late-build car have the carb stud fuel line clip/bracket?
Tim, I'm fairly certain it did not as I have no recollection of seeing it and would think I would have noticed if it was there but will need to look next time just to make sure 100%.

Chick, I noticed that this car had the left side motor restraint cable assembly installed. You see them on some cars, but not all...I guess these were some of the first things to be removed when they got in the way.

TMR...



Eddie I believe that was a major recall in 1971 and some remained and many were taken off. Some maybe were taken off due to having mount changes also. Hard to believe back then the recall ID Number 7IV235000 impacted over 6 and a half million cars.
6  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Wiring lume for the trunk of a 68 rs on: April 22, 2014, 09:26:44 PM
Hey fellas

Just about to change the wiring harness in my 68 and noticed that there is a socket on top of the wheel arch.  I'm assuming this is for
the under boot lighting if it was ordered or are the harnesses different for each?

Thanks
Matt
What brand wiring harness did you purchase? Are you referring to the wheel arch in the trunk Matt?

I can't tell in the pic, but does this car have the bracket that holds the vacuum line?
Yes it does as we looked for that when we had the air cleaner off.

OK, I promised some engine pics so here you go!


Silver looking paint on lift hook and manifold bolts appear to be phosphate (show no signs of clear zinc)





A-arm shaft and washer have remnants of black paint.



Bellhousing is partially painted orange.

Chick,
He finally got it! Good for him and a nice one at that. Can you answer me the following three questions or I can notify him personally and view the car if need be.
1. Are the door strikers allen head or torx
2. Does it have the higher RPM Tach or standard 6-8 Tach
3. The exhaust bracket on the left frame rail. Does it have the two knotches "one on the top and one on the bottom" or does it go straight across. Thanxs Dave
Not sure Dave on your question 1 & 3 but the tach was the std. 6-8 version. Will check out the other stuff when we go over the car some more which will be a little while since Carlisle is here.

Chick, I'm not sure if anyone else here has asked you to do this yet but please give a big THANK YOU! to your friend (the new lucky owner) for his support in allowing you to share this unbelievable find with us here on CRG. Very excited to see more picture and details as your time allows.
Have a good day!
Len H.
Will do Len and know he will appreciate that. Thanks!

Nice work Chick, would love to see more detailed photos of this important find (and who better to take them!).  Thought it was interesting to see the cowl air cleaner is a ridged bottom version.  There has been much debate if any of the ridged bottom actually made it into late production cars (vs service part) or if they were all flat bottomed.  I think this benchmark c

Unless I've missed some proof that the cowl induction system was factory original on this car, that is an assumption re the 'ridged bottom'...  Just as the owner installed the Hurst shifter knob, he might have also installed the hood..  unless we have *proof* that it was factory original?   I haven't yet seen such proof...?

I really debated whether or not to even comment on your response Gary and will only state not sure how a shift knob change relates to a hood/air cleaner change but it does relate to how the owner kept everything. Think about it, he kept the original shift knob, battery & even the 2nd one, all 5 tires, etc. Major items like the smog set up never removed, same owner since new, etc.. The last thing I want to get into is debating about "he might have also installed the hood.. unless we have proof that it was factory original?" Have a great day!

Looks like the original chrome shift ball sitting on the console.
Yep, as I had mentioned in an earlier post the original shifter ball was there. It will be put back on!
OK, have some engine pics to post soon!

Agree 100% except for the "who better to take them"...... Smiley Car is a true benchmark IMHO....

Chick, are the tags on the coil springs and rear leafs still intact ? mine had only one coil spring tag but was so badly deteriorated I couldn't read it and it was too far gone to even make out. What a nice find, would be a nice car for Jerry M to look at for posterity Smiley
 

Eldon, have spent very little time looking underneath except for general inspection so cannot answer at this time but can when its on the lift.

How did his jacking instructions not yellow ? No "spider web" cracking in the stripes ? Top edge of the spoiler flawless. Once again all I can say is wow. I can see were you would be excited going over that car in person.
Yep, its been a joy and wish all of you could participate in looking it over as we have and will continue. Guess we will try to be your eyes....... Smiley
