Any opinions on the selling price of $60,500?

Did you guys ever reunite paperwork with the car?

I found this thread while researching this car for sale at BJ. I attempted to broker this car to George E. back in the very early 90's, but got cut out of the deal by being na´ve and divulging too much information. I was talking with Bob H. back then, and I think he got cut out of the deal as well. It's a long story, and I have since forgot about it until I saw this car and thread. Does anyone know George E.?

The car recently sold at auction for 60,500. Seems a bit low for the real deal. When it went to George, the last price discussion I heard was near the 40K range, way back then.

All of the 68's I have seen with original header moldings have looked like the ones in the first post.
Shiny chrome in the front, and satin chrome in the back.
Not sure about the 69's, but if it was a DOT thing, they are probably the same as 68.

Not mine, I just was comparing it to my car which is almost identical, except mine is blue/blue.

Not often you find a car where the owner seems to have saved everything like this one.
Did the dealer always take a POP imprint when the car was in for service, or did this car have a lot of warranty work done?

Perhaps CRG can use some of these docs for their files. They all look legit to me. What do you guys think, legit or not?

Here is another article with some pictures of his collection. I do not see the Green Z in any of the pictures (including backgrounds).

Is his collection open to public viewing?

Interesting how the article comments on how he cashed out of the home building market at just the right time. I hope his timing of cashing out of the car market doesn't follow the same course!

It will be interesting to see the net profit (or loss) of his collection over the years.
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Rear bumper and front export model???? on: March 14, 2014, 08:29:18 PM

i have a question , when i look at the AIM UPC 14 for my 67 rear bumper , the screw at the corner is located at the top of the bumper. but on my export model the screw is below the bumper Huh?

where are yours??? is it possible that the export model have a special bumper ? or a mistake in the AIM?


The rear bumper has a drawing error in the 1967 and 1968 assembly manual. It is correctly drawn in the 1969 version.

Good times for sure. First gens were well represented. We had 2 67 rs/ss, a 6 cyl 68 and my 69 Z all pretty much lined up together and there was probably at least 20 or 25 in total at the show.

Hey, I stopped and looked at hose cars! I bet you guys where standing right there and I missed the shirts. Next time I will look for CRG or other Camaro enthusiast shirts.

It was a good show, however they changed the spectator parking and it took forever for me to get parked. The town has a PA system and during the walk from parking to main street I could hear the typical car show Doo Wop music playing on it. I was pleasantly surprised by the various live music acts playing mostly rock instead of the doo wop. Cool

It is normal to have this slight skew in the drive shaft because the pinion is not centered in the rear end.

I am not sure why they thought it would be a good idea to start and drive the car before thoroughly checking it out, but they probably won't try that a second time. Look at the massive oil leak when they drive off. Probably shut it off just in time before running dry.
Don't these cars have a low oil pressure warning?

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Lifetime Warranty on 1968 Camaro on: February 04, 2014, 12:15:18 PM
Never seen that, but did they actually charge extra for that?

It seems it would pay for itself due to clause #2 that requires you to pay full price for inspection, oil change, and prescribed maintenance every 60 days (regardless of mileage)!

That, and clause #7 where they can cancel anytime with 30 days notice really makes this just about a worthless gimmick.

Nice looking car.  The engine numbers are certainly inline with what is expected to be original. Just no proof that it is. Sometimes that's the best you can do.

I understand how some people insist on having the original engine when the most common first question asked at a car show is always "is it numbers matching" even when that person has no real idea what they are looking at. Why is it so important to you on a non high HP car? The value in this car is that the top goes down and it's a sharp looking blue!

I see the buyer paid 39,960 with fees at BJ in 2005, but that also means the seller sold it for ~32,900.

Also looks like it also sold at another auction just before BJ where the current owner bought it. Perhaps a dealer/flipper. What do you think it's worth today?

Auction has 42 watchers on ebay.

Probably 42 guys with old ME blocks taking up space in the garage and hoping there is good market for them.

The source I'm getting my imformation is very knowledgeable and I had him restate the information that was to be provided. I believe these GM records are from a different dept/source from where the corvette records were obtained. 

That would be fantastic. It always seems like the Corvette is GM's favorite so for Camaro owners to get a more detailed report would be quite an accomplishment.
