31  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early 1968 Z/28 original tires? on: June 03, 2014, 05:29:13 PM
It was an E70x15 according to the air pressure sticker, being available only on the Z28 I would call it special.

By the way the early 69 Z's list the on their Window Sticker a no cost 15" tire option.
PU6 AD - E70 x 15 Tiires
This was dropped sometime between N522xxx and N528xxx based on the Window Stickers in JM's book.

What was the P28 option, priced at $90 for 1968 models,... "Wheels, 15" and special tire (added 03JAN68 to AIM)"

There is a guy on the Yenko site with a 68 L78 4.56 or 4.88 car that has the original window sticker and 15" tire option, pretty sure it has DF's & wide tread GT's, someone else remembers a car (was def not a Z as it either had air or was a real auto car) with the 15" tire pressure sticker but had discounted it as being wrong earlier in their life.   

Would the wide tread GT have been called a 'special tire' in Jan '68?   Was that the standard tire on the Z28 at that time?   If not, what WAS the standard tire on the Z28 in Jan '68?   I was thinking that this 'special tire' might have been red line tires...?

I have an original Goodyear wide tread tire still on the large font DF wheel and the tire is date coded Jan68. JerryM 68 survivor is an earlier 67 built 68 Z so maybe he will chime in.

Concerning the Vent Tube-I thought or probably more correct to state I ASSUMED the vent tube was part of the rear differential assembly when painted. Or was it placed in after paint?
Got my answer as JohnZ said they were installed after paint.

Lloyd,

Yes. It was the all white version and looks exactly like the one that Chick posted earlier. Perhaps their on-line catalog isn't up to date. I too, searched high and low for a long time to find the correct all white version and after stumbling across Bair's at Carlisle (and reading Chick's post) it was a no brainer to buy one. My rear still has the faded yellow vent tube but for a dollar I just couldn't pass it up.  Grin

You may want to give them a call. Ask for Brian...he's a real nice guy and I'm sure would be happy to help. Bair's riveted my upper ball joints about a year ago and do top notch quality work.

Let me know how you make out.

Bob
For sure Bob, Brian is a chip off the ol' block as his Dad is a great guy to talk to as well. Gee, a buck! Paid a few more for mine!

Lloyd, I ordered mine with some other Corvette stuff from Eckler's. What is shown on the website is a white and black version but they for sure have them along with other suppliers in all white but you might want to verify with whoever you choose to order from.

I'm looking at some used original wittek smog pump clamps, how could I determine what is a fair price to offer the seller for the clamps.
Price can vary a lot and what one person would pay is not what another would, etc.. ! I'd search ebay and google the internet to assist with pricing.
PacecarJeff sells them! http://www.broachbuster.com/id45.htm
Darrell, that was a good one!

Holy cow!  Sold for $625.78!   Shocked

Paul
Yes it is! Take that bracket and the power booster Z/28 hose bracket that recently sold and one has close to $1100! The detail stuff has gone out the roof!
37  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Dealership Memorabilia & Dealership Info on: May 24, 2014, 06:25:27 PM
Found out from the NCRS report our 69Z came out of Rosenthal Chevrolet in Arlington, VA. Did not find much in the way of old pictures but did uncover this info. If anyone has more please add.



And a car possibly sponsored by them?HuhHuh

Charlie Mason paid Baldwin Auto Co. 5500.00 bucks for the 1 and only converted 67 L78 chevelle to a aluminum head 427 by Motion performance pictured in front on the dealership. He got 1 chevelle for the price of 2..  Thomas Mote gave 4280.45 to Baldwin Auto Co. for his  Motion prepped 1968 427 Camaro on 4/24/68 and drove it back home to MD.

Great info and can believe the $5500 for the 67 but only $4280.45 for a 68 427 seems extremely low as a L78 car from GM probably listed close to that. Any idea where both of these cars are today, especially that 67 Chevelle?
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Dealership Memorabilia & Dealership Info on: May 21, 2014, 08:57:31 PM
Chick the sign on the car hauler what does it say? I think it says "Another load for Ammon & Smith  Special promotional Sale"

By George Vince, I believe your correct! Never really looked at the tractor trailer sign that close.

Baldwin, Nickey, & Yenko Dealerhips
Come on, keep the info coming!
Went to Baldwin in 1969 with a friend who was thinking of purchasing a new Baldwin 427 Camaro! The dealership was small and at the time we were both disappointed. He did not buy as he had a little sticker shock and they only had a 427 Nova in the show room to look at. Think it was $6 thousand something. Lot of money back then!
Baldwin Chevrolet


Nickey Chevrolet


Yenko Chevrolet

Take your pick of inventory in behind the dealership!

Do you have the original engine, trans, and rear? Tell us about the car and just curious, have you done any analysis of what your going to spend to restore?
Love those 68's!
42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 12 Bolt Vent Tube on: May 18, 2014, 06:26:57 PM
Not sure if they turned ivory over time but the corvette houses sell the exact vent tube but its white. Danco with the same lettering! Here is an example!


43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Chevrolet's New Z/28 on: May 18, 2014, 06:15:48 PM
Eddie, that was a re-run! He has been bidding on vin #1 Corvettes and now the new Z/28 for several years as they go in his private collection plus the charity which I believe is the amount total minus the value of the automobile.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: gray phosphate on: May 18, 2014, 03:10:44 PM
One of the main reasons you clean the parts immediately is to remove the solution or you will have white spots develop. Palmetto suggests cleaning the parts to remove grease/oil, glass beading, and then within two hours start the phosphate process without handling the parts with bare hands . IMO glass beading bolts and screws does not impact the texture to any extent of causing issues but there are many parts I would not glass bead for that very reason. That is what I do but have for just a quick couple things cleaned and wire brushed which can be acceptable. Just like painting though, the final part is only as good as the preparation. I'm sure there are many ways to accomplish satisfactory results! Smiley Gary is of course correct the instructions do say spraying and wiping three times with wd-40 but the soft brush helps eliminate the three and out wiping mode. When I first started every so often even after wiping and spraying 3 times a part after sitting would obtain a white spot which is the salts mentioned earlier. That is when I found "Mystery Oil" took that off immediately so I started using it with a soft brush with nice results. Recently I was helping a friend get started with the process and he had a pan of WD-40 which we put the parts in that first, scrubbed with the brush and then into the mystery oil for a final bath before taking out and wiping down. Another key is when you take a part out spray it, dip it, or whatever immediately with the oil.

                     thanks john.
                       
                                      I guess if it was a recall it wouldnt be original.
                                       any info on lifting lugs and left wire tower would appreciate.

                                                                                 iceman

The lifting lugs as you call them were installed at the factory and yes, the rear spark plug tower does have two bends.  Sounds like you have a neat car iceman!
