16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NCRS YENKO NICKEY BALDWIN DANA SCUNCIO on: July 01, 2014, 02:39:31 PM
I can,t say surprised because when I bought my 69 RSZ28 back in 2001 the owner made a deal about it being a Scuncio and said he had talked to Bob Johnson and he had some Scuncio newspaper adds and a key fob and some papers not matching to my car but no proof. I had never heard of them at the time. Later when someone at car showed offered me some serious change for my tail emblem I got interested and did some research but came to a dead end until I got my NCRS papers. They say production date 8/28/1969, dealer code 613 in zone 32, Scuncio Chevrolet, Greenvile, RI. Plus my car being an 08E car put the icing  on the cake. So surprised? no, happy, yes. If my 55xxx L78 was not in the lost zone maybe then I could be surprised.

I don,t have mine either. It was a black with red interior 61 Impala bubbletop.348 tripower, 350 horse, 4 speed, all factory. Bought new by my cousin . His wife parked it when it would not start in a field while he was in Viet Nam. I gave him $90.00 for it and towed it home. New battery and a tune up and a 16 year old in 69 was on the loose. Put down some 396 chevelles and GTO,s. dated my 1st wife in it. Spun a bearing in it and bought a 65 SS impala. Put the 4 speed in that and actually gave the body away to a guy who wanted the interior. Later gave the 348 away. This car actually had the tripower emblems on the front fenders. Many cars later and I still look at 61 black impalas hoping it might be mine. I did however take pictures of it and still have them. For some reason I was into pictures and took some of almost every car I ever had and still have them in an album. On lazy days it is nice to look at 45 years worth of muscle cars the I owned and drove.

If you guys are talking about the Fathom Green in Muscle Car Review. Look at the original engine except hoses and belts. I saw a 67 down oil fill tube and cap and the valve covers are on the wrong sides. Not sure I would say all original.

As long as matching numbers and rare options can double the value of a car, be it a Camaro,corvette, or other the fakes will continue. As Dana M said at one of his actions, only the cars with doc,s are bringing real money.

After leaking cork and plastic I went silicon on the ends. They sell orange and silver to match your block or aluminum intake. If you want to look factory and don,t know you parts history just dry set the intake and use a feeler guage to check clearances. I someone milled your heads or cylinder surfaces when you tighten the intake it might squeeze the end gaskets out due to no clearance.

I do not what is best but I have some hints. If anything such as dash,instruments,wiring, ect are left on the car the media will find it. Remove it all first or you will have to do it later and clean it. Plus after you blow it with compressed air, vacuum it 4 times. still wear goggles when you drive it for a while and be prepared to get it out of your ears ,nose and teeth. And by the way spraying with water 5 times will not help.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What's it worth, untouched Cortez silver 69 RS Z on: June 09, 2014, 10:00:50 AM
To me, a person with a parts car would be the only person who come out of this one. Prefferably some with a body shop who,s guys get slack occasionally. A reasonable # would be fair for someone who might track the engine and doc,s.

Roy,
Sorry to hear that. Hope someone else picks where you left off. Your enthusiasm has been great. Thanks again.

I would have to look this weekend to make sure but I am pretty sure my L78 SS Auto has 4 leaf springs.
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 05, 2014, 10:34:36 AM
Mine had white plastic push plugs in the holes. Kind of like the ones at the Help rack at Auto Zone. The were in the doors, quarters, even the tailgate. But like I said it still rusted.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Heavy undercoating was it factory or dealer applied? on: June 04, 2014, 04:21:21 PM
I remember dealers here in NC pushing in the 70,s when you bought a new car. I even had a 76 Blazer I bought used where they drilled holes in door jambs and other places and pushed a wand in to spray the inside places. It rusted anyway.

If my memory is right, the 2 wires are open close. The neg. or ground goes to the case.
29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: fake protecto plates heard any stories on: May 30, 2014, 03:00:20 PM
AS far as real paper work. We had someone raid our company mailbox and stole some checks. They somehow removed the company name and installed a persons name and cashed them. Some were SECURE type checks and one was a bank check. It fooled the bank that issued it. I have seen a couple and I can,t tell that anything was done. The police say there is some clown working our area that has the means to do this. In short it may come the day when REAL paperwork is handed to you by the person who originaly received it.
