Maybe it's "hammerite" which came out in 1962 ?

Wow!  You may be on to something.  I googled that.  Hammerite is zinc phosphate based. 
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 68 Camaro on craigslist on: October 25, 2011, 09:05:01 PM
I thought someone may be interested in this car.  It's not mine and I do not know the owner, but it appears to be fairly original and possibly numbers matching.  It for sale on the Oklahoma City Craigslist.

68 Camaro
Approx 134,000 original miles.
Motor was pulled a few years ago and has sat ever since. I have original motor (327) and transmission available. I have a new motor on engine stand (350) with lots of extras. Eldebrock intake, uni-lite distributor, timing gears, low end cam with lots of lift. Also have a 400 model transmission available it is a 3 speed. The original transmission is a 2 speed (power glide). This car needs rebuilt, will need tires just to get it out of the yard. Very little rust on this car, must see to appreciate. It was our family car, I was the 3rd owner and was in the family previously. Time to part ways don't want it to turn into a rust bucket

19  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 3917610 Intake Manifold Inspection Stamp on: September 10, 2011, 07:05:03 PM
Mine is not stamped on the right front corner.  Instead it is stamped 55 on the on top of the square boss of the right middle coolant runner.  I don't know the date code of the intake or anything about the car it came off of.  I just have the intake.  I've owned it since 1986. Hope this helps you.

 I am replacing my Door Panels and rear Side Panels, corners and edges are curled and loose.  But the Trim pieces are all good.  It looks as if the trim was laminated to the Vinyl at the factory.  What would be a good strong glue to glue these on?   Would headliner glue work?

Try this before you give up on your original panels.  Go to the auto parts store and spend $20 on a vinyl repair kit.  Using a heat gun (or your wife's blow dryer) heat up the damaged areas and the vinyl will soften and become very workable. Stretch the vinyl back around the corners, glue it, and clamp it.  Let the glue dry.  Heat any cracked vinyl, shove a little glue under the crack, weight/press it down and let the glue dry.  Then go back and fill cracks using the vinyl repair kit.  

I did this to my trashed door panels and they look almost perfect now.  I even messed up a few areas and simply cut out my mistakes and refilled with the repair kit stuff until I got it right.  Very rewarding in the end.  It was kinda like body work.  I just kept at it until it was right.  I suppose you could take them to an interior shop and have them worked also.  

Good luck.

This is sort of expensive, but it works as good as the website says.  I have used it before with incredible results.

 I'd use the gel on a stamp pad.  It won't harm metal or paint.

And no I do not have any connection or financial interest with the company or its owners.

Don't know about 67, but in 68 it was possible to get standard interior with deluxe belts.  You may want to checvk this out for 67.  If available in 67 that might explain your bright blue belts and standard interior.  Maybe someone will comment.

Here is a pic of my 68 floor drain cover.  Stamped H41  8

I just check my 68.  Each is stamped  H41 8.  Appears to be a date code on my Oct production car.

The block and heads may be fine, but I think your friends carburetor will have a difficult time making it a year as the gas will dry up and the gaskets will dryout.  It will leak gas all over the intake manifold when you try to start the car.  I think that if you just let an engine sit for a year you will at least need to put a rebuild kit on the carb all else may be ok.   I don't think the ethanol will require any other extra attendion.  Undecided

If you don't have rear shoulder belts you may want to consider installing them. I believe I saw a recent thread about rear shoulder belts either on this site or on the team camaro ( website.  Aftermarket suppliers can get you a good belt and tell you how to properly install it.  Good luck and watch out for the crazies that don't realize a 40 year old car can't stop on a dime.

Cheers for the advice there. Sadly the block is not original to the car.

If it is not original to your car, I wonder whose car it is original to?  Could you post the partial vin stamp and other numbers?  Please don't deck the numbers, even if you wouldn't consider selling it to the owner of it's original car.  Someone may be looking for that piece of information for their car.   I know that if I ever happened to luck onto the original block for my car, I would be very appreciative and work to put the seller in a better position for releasing it. Your block may be someones, life long hunt.
