If you have the ability/availability to sand blast, I would choose that over a chemical that you may not get completely removed/neutralized.

Nice work... Grin The front brace is a common casualty of parking curbs... Angry
3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Quadrajet question........... on: November 13, 2009, 06:33:35 PM
I followed your picture trail and MAN that is a beautiful car  Cool  I'm glad to see you kept it and are bringing it back to life.  My 67 isn't quite that bad and is a driver right now, but needs restoration.
I have a 67 GTO that was in the same shape and was just a rolling shell. I've been collecting parts to restore it and will be putting the body on a rotisserie this winter to replace the entire floor from the firewall to the bumper, including the tail panel... Shocked Then it will be set on the new frame I bought in OK and brought back.
Keep up the good work and get it on the road soon. Good luck with the carb adjustment.

Am I reading this right  Huh?  The guy in IA paid over $71 for it and sold it to Kurt for $7.00    Huh Shocked

Cool, thanks. The swap to the 4 speed got waylaid by a 67 GTO basket case anyway, so the info is still timely..... Grin

I dug this back up to ask a question too. My 67 has a floor shifted PG w/console now. Is the factory hole for the pg shifter in the same/correct location for a Hurst comp plus shifter when I make the change over ?
Thanks
7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Stamped code on trunk lid on: November 08, 2008, 09:25:25 PM
I am sure I saw a topic on how to decode this on here a while back, but I can't find it again.
Also, is there a description/pictures of the different styles by year to better identify the lid ?
thanks........ Wink

 ...that is a surprise, ...but I also think I can understand (I get some crazy thoughts myself sometimes, ...I just don't want to look back and regret it though...).
   Did yours go to a 'good home'? ...hopefully we'll still see it around...

Kevin,
 When I sold the car I thought it was going to a good home and be left just like it was. I think I was wrong. Darn!

It's just a car, right?

Rick H.



No. If the person you sold it to mislead you to believe that, I know how you feel.
I have been considering selling my documented 70 Chevelle ss lately to fund my 67 Camaros restoration. The 70 is just a shell too and I don't see it getting restored anytime soon either. I waited 23 years for that car and KNOW I will regret selling it, if I did.
Wish I was in a position to buy your grill assembly. I have an "original GM" in it now. Must be a 68 too Huh

Wow, cool Steve. That's all right up there in the red rectangle ?? Maybe that's where I saw it and didn't remember. Sooooooooo much info in there... Cheesy
10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Clutch Return Spring on: September 02, 2008, 06:17:57 PM
In the past, if the header tube was in line with the spring, I just put a stainless hose clamp around the tube and attached the spring to it. Course I never had ceramic coated headers that I didn't want to scratch either.... Wink
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Power Steering Conversion on: September 02, 2008, 06:15:01 PM
I used one of Jim's kits seven years ago - went together fine, no missing parts, no problems.
Hey thanks.  I realize it a matter of opinion, but is it worth the effort.
If you are used to/spoiled by a ps on your daily driver, you'll like the ps on your Camaro. It was the first "upgrade" I did to my 67 and love it. Next is power brakes. I forgot how much pedal pressure it took to get 4 wheel drums to stop a car !!!
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: sparks plug wiring support 67 on: September 02, 2008, 06:06:58 PM
It would be VERY helpful if you could post a picture of it..... Grin There were a LOT of different supports thruout the years.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 camaro master cylinder on: September 02, 2008, 06:05:20 PM
Wow.....that's an eye opener about Heartbeat. I can't believe anyone would sell a high risk part like that.  Shocked
I can't help on the original part number. I know I've seen posts about them.  If the guru's don't respond here, maybe try Team Camaro. Lots more traffic and many of the same people from here over there. I bought my rebuilt MC at Auto- Zone, but it is just 4 wheel drum. Paid $10.00 and have had it on a year now with no issues. You might want to check them out for the disc/drum MC.

My 67 glide pan code is within a few days of the trim tag build also. It was built on the night shift too, so that should tell you something about the volume of transmissions going out the factory door...I don't think they had time to stock ahead on the Powerglides.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoration of the glove box door on: September 02, 2008, 01:13:23 AM
The missing rubber stop may help, but it may not cure it. My 67 is notorious for sticking too. I've tried setting the latch back farther to enhance the preload on the stops and sometimes it pops out and sometimes it don't. It's just like a female........does what it wants, when it wants.... Cheesy
