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.

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.
38  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.

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.
41  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.

The cast number and date might narrow it down.
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 Z28 stuff on: May 30, 2014, 10:03:06 AM
My memories recall certain Nova 283,s being different. A friend who Pro raced in the 70,s always said they were stronger and had more meat but I cannot remember why he said they were.

As far as cowl tag verses NCRS build date date my cowl says 08E and the letter says 8-28-1969 which I think is Thursday of the E week.
