I'd love to see some photos of your cars; surely with such a trio of fantastic cars, you probably have taken a single photo with all of them in it? Smiley   I was just thinking today that one car I'd love to have (that I've never owned) is a '69 or 70 Nova SS (an L78 engine would make it 'primo').. Smiley

For someone who's English usage and spelling seems a bit lacking, he seems to have taken care in NOT referencing the drivetrain components as 'factory original', instead he says...  "The matching numbers motor was redone to factory specs markings by a professional shop. Has all the factory Crayon and Chalk marks on and under the car. All new front and rear suspension was also done on this car. The matching # transmission and rear end have had the same thing done rebuilt strip and repainted to factory color."

He DOES seem to call the car a 'factory original in his last statement although it seems he has more than one..?   Smiley
 
"These original matching numbers 1969 Z/28's are a Blue Chip Collectable's and a great investment!! "

Well.. I told you I couldn't make it out..  Smiley

Yes, I'm in the northern part of Alabama, but I couldn't read that Camaro's license plate.   It's for sale in Oklahoma, so I assumed that was where it was found?

a factory Z28, with it's original 302 is a 'whole Z' to most of us here.. Smiley

The 'hugger orange' color is why half the CRG members are considering it... Smiley

I agree with you again James!   in fact, back in the '70's when I was daily driving my car, I obtained a set of 3.55 gears with exactly that intention, although the car got parked before they were ever installed.... Smiley

It appears as if the steeringwheel/column got *body slammed* and broke loose, and in turn broke the instrument panel and possibly a 'head' broke the windshield?  I agree with James...   it appears to be *right* except for the wreck damage and the $price$...

Companies do sell zddp additives, although I haven't used them myself.  Eastwood and even a company called 'zddplus'..

I looked at the Piqua Call newspaper archives yesterday and found advertisements for the Crumback-Rogers dealership although all the ads were for used cars. I looked at 68, 69, & 70 newspapers. It appears that Crumback was involved in many dealerships in the area.

On a different note, I did like the price of cars quoted in the ads!! Where is my time machine?

The numbers were very different than today, but new cars were still expensive even in 1969.. Smiley     I was in the USAF, about to make sergeant and making ~$150/month (of course with free food, board, med, etc). Smiley    I ordered a new 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner in October 1969, listed for $3870, bought it at $3283, financed for 3 yrs payments of $93/mo..   insurance cost me $50/mo..  Smiley    (I had a  40hr/wk parttime job fortunately).. which helped pay my car/ins payment and the 6 speeding tickets I received the first 4 months of ownership..  Smiley

What is it coded for?   The code will tell you if it were a positraction from the factory.   if it were an Eaton it would have the 'E'... not sure what the 'D' means, but a check on CRG data should identify it

when you get that far, use a steering wheel puller, Danny..  rather than the 'jack whack'..  Smiley

It looks real.. lots of original appearing parts..  body not *super*, but not nearly as bad as some we see, although the rust around the glass bothered me...  If I were in the market for a *restorable* real Z28, this one would be considered, but the money appears high to me, as it needs to go all the way down, and all the way back up..
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 Camaro Heater Control Back Light - Green or White? on: January 27, 2015, 10:39:10 PM
I think the lamp plugs in on the lower right hand side... not very far under the lip of the instrument panel.  I'm not sure where a green lens would go, but the letters for the heater control panel are 'tinted a light green'...?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Crumback-Rogers Inc- Piqua, OH on: January 27, 2015, 11:27:24 AM
The local newspaper there (Piqua Daily Call) has several references, photo references, etc for the Crumback-Rogers Chevrolet-Oldsmobile-Cadillac dealership.  Perhaps these were advertisements?   The Newspaper archives might be a good source of information.. and perhaps that dealership changed hands in the early '70's...?   check re the Joe Johnson Chevrolet dealership  between Troy and Piqua?
