Hi guys,
 I have a 1968 "FACTORY ASSEMBLY MANUAL" that i found about thirty years ago, it's a copy from DRAFTING GRAPHIC # 3918855
it has many handwritten notes and dates in the revision box on the bottom of the pages. Is this considered the A.I.M.?
 Thank you all,

General Discussion / Edelbrock's red camaro
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:23:17 AM »
Hi guys,
I was wondering if anybody has ever checked out the red 67 SS "that came from the factory with a 327" becuse they ran out of 350s ? I remember this being a magazine car early on (I think one of the stories was "THE CAMARO THAT COULD"). I don't buy that the factory made so many big mistakes. It seems that a lot of people think their wrong part is somehow original. It was common in the late 70's early 80's to crash or buy a crashed muscle car an put all the good stuff on a stocker... we did a few... numbers ment nothing! Parts were cheap, labor was free. We also swapped out all the good parts we wanted when we sold or traded cars. I have gone through 7 early camaros through the years and still have many of the good parts, kept 1 original BB car. Our group went through dozens (Chevelles and Novas too) and i'm sure this was repeted throughout the hot rod world. People junked 302s becuse they did not know how to tune or drive them. Anyway any info on the Edelbrock camaro would be great to know.

 Hi Guys,
Thanks for the replys. Out of 23 rods not  single match, though the shifter and levers are correct. I will check the Long beach Hi-perf swap meet on Sunday, I may get lucky. Thanks again for the Info, picture, and advice.

Restoration / Competition plus rods

Hi all,
Does anyone know or know where I can find the Correct part number  or rod numbers for a competition plus shifter? They may be in a bucket with about 20 others.  I will be using this to replace a muncie shifter (factory warranty replacement anyway) in a Stock BB car with a console and was wondering if anybody has any "heads up" on this. Also, does anyone have a picture of a Muncie stick stamped "MUNCIE" that they can post?  as this will be mated to the shifter.
 Thanks for reading and good luck on all your projects,

Hi All,
 I have a 05C LA car with the original 14 stamped hood and a better shape 17 hood. the car is at the body shop now. Is the 17 hood too close to the 23rd week that the car was assembled?  (red original primer, spoiler holes in the trunk, no pen marks behind the seat, no build sheet tucked anywhere inside the interior, I'll check the date of the jacking instructions later if any body still needs to know)

General Discussion / picture library

Hi all,
We were wondering if it would be possable or practical to create a photo library to go along with wealth of information at this site.
It would be great to be able to compair colors, punch fonts, locations, hardware, part changes, tags, textures, ect. ect. . .
Once again thanks to all that make this site happen.

The back spacing will not allow you to off-set the rims one more inch without rubbing. Factory 15 x 7's will give you the same back spacing and allow you to use the 245's w/o issues. weak springs will cause some rubbing on the inside of the wheel well while turning on dips, bumps, or driveways.

Originality / 1968 "MUNCIE" stamp, D90 colors
« on: May 31, 2008, 03:30:21 AM »
Hi all,
 I have Two questions.
    1 Were in fact all 68 muncie shifters stamped MUNCIE? Mine is not.
    2 The paint page states that a 1968 Camaro painted LeMans blue should have the D90 stripe painted white, I saw no exceptions
        listed. My car has the RS black sill, rear BB black-out, the D90 stripe is visible in the sun through the $29.95 paint job that was
        on the car when I bought it in 1980 from the second owner. The car has a Black vinyal top. I power washed Earl's paint over
        the stripe and it is also black (white would be ulgy - Three tone paint !) The car was unmolested except for the radio was
        replaced, it had deep set 6" low-rider rims, and Ansen ground grabber traction bars. so I belive it is all original. any feed back
       or comments on these subjects would be great.

 The carb shop in Santa ana Ca. does a great rebuild. i have used Mike many times, always with great results.
Check out his web page (i think it's the carb shop . com) All makes, models, years.

 Hi all,
I am looking for the most original seatcovers and padding for a standard 1968 (712). Thanks for your comments.
 P.S. Whats the best way to remove the melted rubber from the quarters and wheel wells, going faster did not work?
