16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 15" X 7" Rallys clear everything on a '68 on: January 08, 2015, 03:37:30 PM
Danny,
  I deceided to keep you company! I would guess that the responses are few becuse there are a few factors to consider, Easy answer is yes. however not all 265.50.15's are the same size, stuffed wheels look awsome stopped but not always good for daily driving. If the springs/bushings are weak/sagging there will be lots of side shift causing rubbing to the inside of the fender wells. a full tank or passangers will lower your car a couple of inches. I have 295 50 15's euro T/A's tucked in my 68 with un-cut wheel mouldings (Multi-leaf springs with Anson ground grabbers,- bolt is in) The rims are 15 x 8 with a 4.5" back space. The only rub I have had was a bad dip on the 405 freeway at high speed. They must have rubbed the tops of the fender wells as there was no markings on the tires. Hope this helps.

P0428, I know is Muncie, built on April 28 ( of 1966) But 6Z125483 got me. I don't know the VIN MFG or the "Z" plant.

That car's VIN is two after mine. for the line process guys, my SCH # is J543, and the body # is 39094. would that mean that this car was four cars behind mine on the assembly line?
Not that that has any importance, but the closest to mine that I have seen.

 John,
   But did you solve the problem?

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: December 17, 2014, 07:25:25 PM
Mark,
 I would think that the 05B cars were the hand built "true" pilot cars, and the 09B cars were used to test run the assembly line, pre-production.

ds1,
 Is your car built in Ohio or California? does the trim tag read 05C?
   Thanks,

G/7, Jon,
 I got that date from the " the chevroletcamaro.com" site years ago, it has been updated but still cites the Dana 427 camaro being built 6 months before the first GM 67 396 camaro. Very early, With all the main players being close to GM's R&D department I still wonder if that car was/is a Prototype. It seems that there are prototypes missing and no BB prototypes accounted for. Hmmm.

Big Iron,
   Non BB T400 mounts? What small block came with a T 400?  Would a new part number coincide with the introduction of the 396 ? ( the BB transmission cross members are also off-set)

Jon,
  Is this the same car from the Sept. 66 Car Life magazine? I know back then the magazines had a long lead time, being a Sept. issue I have always wondered is this car was a early prototype body. Has anyone ever been able to blow up the trim tag picture? or know what happen to the car? and did Bill Thomas race cars supply the motor mounts?

Keep in mind that input shafts can be changed during rebuilds.

Kurt, or anybody.
  What is the best way to handle/clean a sheet that my brother found on top of his gas tank just this weekend (72 LA SS Nova)? it is very brittle and is covered with 40 yrs. of fine black soot. Im not going to a document restorer as it is not mine and he can care less about it. It seems even a weak vacuum with a brush would damage it further. It is currently between pages of the Sunday paper for safe keeping.
    Thank's for any advise,
    Victor

 Take note of the black tail panel paint lines into the trunk, that's the same as my car. (correction) my car is a few THOUSAND after this car.

Red67,
    My car was produced just a few hundred after this car and it never (since June '80) had the posi decal and no sign that there ever was one.

30  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Tail light gasket recomendations. on: October 17, 2014, 02:49:03 PM
Dave,
  I faced the same problem when repainting my car, nothing was worth using. I used the original born with gaskets that were still on my tail lights when they were removed, needless to say they fit and looked perfect. IMO there is nothing worse than seening a otherwise nice car with gaskets hanging out of the door handles, mirrors, side markers and tail lights, but it is so common. BTW there was nothing holding the gaskets, they seprate from both the car and the housing without damage. I never split the tail light housings. Hope you still have the originals to use.
    Good luck,
        VT
