It's difficult to tell from the photos you included, but that wheel doesn't look like an original rosewood wheel for a '69 Camaro.  In fact, even the dish appears deeper?   Can you measure the dish so we can compare?

Already had it rebuilt and plated and disgusted with what happened. Friends seen it and wondered if it was done with Eastwood paint.
I have it in vice and going to see what happens.
Who did that for you bill?

so do you have the body back together after cleaning it?

body?    front clip?    Smiley    No, the front clip is still off, although my 'hesitation' to start reassembling is the only  thing holding that up..  that and lack of space in my garage to move big parts around.

I'd love to have heard it full bore..  getting a *double shot* (of his baby's love) .. Smiley  .. from those dual Holleys..  Smiley
It takes a LOT of horsepower and a lot of RPM to justify all that cfm... Smiley

I like his music too.. and he's obviously an afficionada... Smiley
Wanna buy my old Dual 1219 ?  Smiley

Also very difficult to check during judging, Scott..  Smiley
If you have it off the engine, take a photo, and show the judges the photo. Smiley

Thanks for clarifying the issue with the Vega engine heating issue, JohnZ...  I *may* have heard that before in the latter days, but I heard so many others who owned those cars say the 'block warped'...  I never owned one or worked on one myself.  (My memory is OLD too) *G*

Gary is yours going to be on the road this spring?

Maybe...  with a 350 LT1 in it, to work out any 33 yr old bugs in the rest of the car, but the 302 probably will not be back together by then.  I still haven't decided which pistons to reassemble it with (compression wise).. the 12:1 Forgedtrues I ran  I'm probably going to use the original exhaust manifolds and stock exhausts when I put it back together (although I'm torn between that and headers also)..

.. and in the HOT states, as soon as the engine overheated one time, the engine *warped*.....

Have a healthy, happy, and prosperous new year!

The word 'restored' to me has always meant 'returned to original factory fresh condition, in function, appearance, and parts'..  all original and 'as new'...  I think most auto enthusiasts embrace this or a very similar definition.    'Restified', 'rebuilt', etc..  all have totally different meanings.
987  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare?? on: December 25, 2013, 11:35:12 PM
I'd call that cleaning and repair.. not restoration!   Yes, cleaning and functional repair *almost always* makes sense... but restoration is VERY expensive...

Toss the Q-Jet into a trash can and get a Holley Spread-bore.... lol            you won't be sorry. Good luck.

At one time, prior to using a well rebuilt Quadrajet, I would have agreed 100% with this sentiment.. Smiley .. if *performance* is your only criteria, then I would probably still lean that way.   But, I have to defend the quadrajet a 'little'..   If properly rebuilt, and set up, a QJ can get very good gas mileage for normal driving and still run very well when opened up.  One of the main problems with 'old' QJ's is that the throttle shaft wears in it's bore, allowing leakage, so make sure you get that rebushed and fitted, and there are some other 'standard' fixes that a good QJ guy knows when rebuilding them.

I have decided to restore the car back to original and not modify it. I just don't have the heart to change anything on her. I'll let the next owner decide if they want to modify it. After restored back to its original condition I think it will be worth about the same as a base 327 convertible.

If your plan is to sell it..  purely as an investment, I seriously doubt that you will make more $ than selling it as it is now.   If some one has ever made $$ in the short run on an original car by *restoring* it.. I'd love to hear from them...?
990  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: My other 2 69's on: December 24, 2013, 11:35:01 AM
that thing was put in the trash many years ago... Smiley    Buy the repro and drag it behind your car for a few miles.. then bury it in your garden til next spring.. it'll look 44 yrs old after that. Smiley
