1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Keys from keycode? on: March 25, 2013, 09:23:43 AM
I just did this 3 weeks ago on my 1970 442 as the key was falling out of the cylinder when I was cranking the engine. I pulled the cylinder and the code is stamped on the side.

The key was worn out on the end which is what holds the key in the cylinder when you turn it forward. My local locksmith charged $15.00 plus the key charge, all total about $17.00. The new key works great and when compared to the old key, a world of difference!
I had a new trunk key made too and then had duplicates made from the fresh cuts of each key.
If you don't do this, your duplicates will look and work like the old worn out keys.

Looks like a great car to me, but I'm partial to Yellow Z's (had 4 of them including one now.) No louvers on the rear quarters yet it has the moldings on the wheel wells, but no big deal.
I would say it is at the right money now but sometimes it's not worth arguing over a few thousand to get the right car.
I love the black vinyl top on this color but this car has a "stance" that does look great!

I had looked at a car locally in Illinois a number of years ago that was Dusk Blue and was featured in a Car Magazine. The seller had bought the car from a guy in New York and had a copy of the magazine included in the sale.
The block vin number was crisp and bright like the pictures you posted.
This particular car was also rear ended and was very poorly repaired and quite obvious with a peek into the trunk.
I passed on that one to say the least even though I love Dusk Blue.

What state is this car located in?
Is it Dusk Blue or Lemans Blue?

I don't have any pictures of a vin number and the trans was never out when I owned it.

I was told by the the guy on the title as mentioned earlier in this discussion that the trans for this car ended up in a station wagon. I never identified what the actual trans was and didn't care since it wasn't the original anyhow.
Maybe someone else can chime in on this one.

Kurt,


Here is a link to the current owner's website.

There are pictures posted including the Trim Tag.

I owned this car for 13 years and was told that story from the guy I bought it from. The title I received when I bought the car was never put in that sellers name and had the previous owners name on it.
I contacted that owner in July of 2007 and had a nice conversation with him. He verified that the previous owner had stripped off all of the good parts but that he always new it was an original JL8 car. He did not know what a POP was so if this was kept with "all of the good parts", it is certainly plausible that the POP and parts were reunited with the original car as this story goes on to say.
I sold the car last year thru Volo to John Cena, WWE wrestler who sold it this summer with a few other cars to a Exotic car dealer in Naples, Florida.

Price seems high for a non dual carb cross ram JL8 car. It does look nice and clean. I am no expert on the cowl tag, but the ad does say it is a numbers matching car. You need to inspect or photograpgh the engine stamp pad, trans bellhousing, and body under the passengers side cowl to verify that the hidden VIN are real #'s matching car and not a restamp.

Where does it state that this is a JL8 car?
Reproduction tag for sure.

Fake.
No D80 in January among other things wrong with it.
11  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hendrick Motorsports Olympic Gold 69 Z28 for sale. on: December 06, 2011, 12:50:04 PM
It's got a fake tag.  Lots of stamps look to be "modified", angled headrests on an 01C car, Guage cluster with no clock, all kinds of little nits.  Kind of throws the whole car into question, doesn't it?  123479N587627 for the record.


Definite fake tag and suspicious looking stampings.

12 Bolts but they don't have to be posi's.
I have (1) Pace Car now with the build sheet (BL rear) and just sold one a few months ago with a Protecto Plate and a (BL rear.)

Ebay Pace Car rear axle pic.

Here is a comparison of the Ebay Pace car rear axle stamp and mine on my LA Pacer.

They look pretty identical. My pic is the second one.

My car is a 04B and his is a 04C build date but they are very close in unit production numbers.

Restoring this car will be expensive and when done the new owner will have a 350 pace car with no docs and a non original motor.

Probably worth somewhere in the 30's. At 12k, he should take that and run with it.

No bargain here.
