My restored 67 SS conv has this attractive color combo.

 Hmmm...must be a rare radio in that too.
Sometimes I wonder how many times the so called *winning* buyer is actually a rep of BJ that is bidding to force the price up artificially but in some cases not having a real legit buyer topping it to take it away. Just an observation.


I highly doubt that due to they would have far too much to lose then gain.
Wow, just cannot believe that car brought that much. Incredible..... Seller is happy I bet:)

Peg, welcome aboard to the CRG Grin Know all of us sure wish you and your husband the best with the car but not sure what the trim tag or vin will assist in establishing it was a Dana unless someone has some Dana vin database. The trim tag on a 68 tells us very little as we own a 68. You mentioned it was purchased off the orig. owner and that you have the front end coming so maybe there are some clues there but so far I'm not sure anything has been revealed. I'm sure you asked but doesn't the orig. owner or any family members have any pictures of the car at all? Racing picture or maybe it never hit the track?
Again, welcome and good luck!

Survivor car has or sure looks like a RBW bolt. There is no clear path for bolts/screws and it takes time. I know and appreciate as I'm restoring as you may know a 68 Z/28 and its taken just huge amounts of hours researching as so many of the small details are not in a book or bits and pieces of info are scattered among many resources. I will be glad to assist any way I can as this and any theads concerning bolts/screws are helpful in our restoration endeavor.

12A LA Build...
Is a Black Phosphate finish baked into the metal? If so, you are probably correct. If it is BP It shouldn't have lost its color right? 

Phosphate is a chemical process and not a baked on process. No I do not think it should have lost its color like the thread and underside show if it was a phosphate bolt originally. I have taken rusted bolts and upon removing the rust (evaporust) it is nomally quite evident to still see the dark gray phosphate appearance. Your bolt Marty appears to have been coated with something while it was in place (threaded in) hence the upper portion of thread and underside so zinc looking. Maybe someone sprayed some coating on it while it was threaded into something other than the car? Just my thoughts!?!?

I have gone through a lot of bolts/screws comparing head markings (originals) to the repros which do not match many times but we all know there were many suppliers. As you assumed Marty and I'm with ya, I have not noticed or remember that head marking on the bolt you posted so I will assume also they are not original.  Grin I have mine bagged but will have to dig through the finished and non-finished bolt bags to find. Memory tells me RBW was a predominant one.

Marty, that anchor bolt sure looks like a zinc coating under the captured washer... When was your Camaro built?
712  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Horn Fasteners on: January 17, 2012, 10:26:14 PM
This is one of the horn bolts on our 01B 68 Camaro and it is zinc.

I have a 6A, & 9A NOR Z28's with Firestone SC 200 tires.

I have seen one late NOR Z with a Firestone SC 200 spare tire. At the time I thought it had been changed but know differently now.

Cool thread, I have a butternut '69 convertible SS black top that I just adore. Since you are kinda my big bro { 01B - 01C } after seeing this thread what is your opinion about the tire pressure sticker? and the chances of this being a real Z28?

Well you sure have a lot of info that supports it is a Z/28 but as others have mentioned its always wise to proceed with caution. Concerning the sticker, I'm no expert but over the years we have all seen some weird things like a AM radio mast on a AM-FM radio equip. car or std. seat belts in a custom int. equip. car or a factory grind out and restamp of a pad so anything is possible and it might be just a simple defect that someone placed the wrong sticker or glove box door on.  Bottom line, you will probably never know.
716  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 B.U. rear end on: January 14, 2012, 08:23:50 AM
I've been searching what seems like a lifetime for a B.U. rear end for my late 1969 Z28. I've found them but the dates are never close enough. Can anyone suggest somewhere to look for a rear end, i've tried ebay, team camaro, supercar registry, no luck.
How long you been looking? Reason for asking as a part like that might take awhile as you are finding out. I'd put a wanted ad in Hemmings Motor News, check out Craig's list constantly, and place wanted ad's in any type of local "auto locator". Did you put a "want to purchase" ad in Team Camaro? Get aggressive and enjoy the hunt....
717  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Possible Purchase on: January 14, 2012, 06:57:25 AM
Hi John and good luck with the purchase if not solidified yet. Read your post in the beginning but then did not follow up until now and was pleasantly surprised to see our 01B NOR 68Z has another sibling as our engine was built/born the same day. I have a restoration thread going that you might find interesting concerning our 68Z.

I was just under a 68 Z/28 survivor this week observing things for our restoration and the only color other than the body overspray underneath was black. Our Oct. 69 Norwood car is a TN never undercoated Camaro and other than the Lemans Blue overspray it's all black. I honestly do not remember working on a car with a gray bottom but that does not mean they do not exist as I'm sure they do somewhere.
720  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 upper control arm shaft finish on: January 01, 2012, 10:21:52 PM
As Mike has mentioned they were black. JohnZ communicated in the past the control arm, bushings, and dog bone were painted as an assembly.
