leather is better than vinyl...  there are companies that will make seat covers for you using your material of choice (black leather) in the pattern of your choice (69 std)...

Has CRG ever seen a documented original car with a 6 month delay between planned and actual produc tion?   What is the largest delay we've seen/documented??

Why? What is different?

That was my thought as well.....  ?

that car is SO rare, I think that only an idiot owner would want to sell it.....   he should take his ads down and keep that car as it's rarity will just continue to increase...   :)

I change my mind... :)    The photos tell a different story than the words.... :)

Odd thing is if it is a good body and has what he says, the price is not stupid.

If the body is halfway decent, and has the parts described, then it's probably a very good deal at $10K based on what I see awful camaros sell for....

Take the photo with your i-phone (if that's all you have?) then EMAIL it to  your computer, and use a software package (I like 'Light Image Resizer' but you can also use PAINT if you have nothing else to reduce the file size (or resolution) after first 'trimming' the image to only the portion you want to show...  Each image file size has to be below 200 KB (compressed JPG) to post here...

The vendor will likely quadruple their price if they realize they fit early Camaros too...  :)

.. SO I just ordered the parts on the 'take a chance' principle!   (didn't want to take the door apart to check first).. :)

Is that item unique to '67 models? or is the same part used on '68's and '69's??

Dave Beem and I pulled a 63 Z06 Big Brake Fuelie out of Colorado back in 2016.
The master the finned large brakes with the 1-3/16 wheel cylinders

AND ...  the cooling vents with screens cut into the backing plates... factory not custom~     I believe that was only done on '62 and 63 Corvettes (wtih the big brakes)~

Al Knoch produces convertible tops for Corvettes (predominantly) but also for early Camaros..

Their corvette convertible tops are first rate...

A loud banging likely results from something 'large/heavy' shifting positions when braking...  Check every large item underneath the front of your car for loosened bolts, etc...
