If that car is legit, that is a smoking deal IMHO..

No doubt, my Z's seats would be getting disassembled double quick. lol.. These seats have been in my 68 since about 1981, but were originally out of a triple Black 69 SSRS I parted out back before i knew any better.  Shocked
5  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Original seat tag on: April 10, 2014, 09:36:59 PM
I'm not really sure where to post this but I ran across this tag today while stripping my Passenger side front bucket seat apart to get ready for new buns & covers. This were original 69 trim 712 Black Comfortwieve seats. I had them recovered back in about 81 but the guy never removed the original Burlap as this tag was in between the layers of Burlap..




 The original rear seat cover was dated 2/3/69 I thought I took a picture of the date stamp, but now I cant find it although you can kind of see the imprint from it on the rear seat bun. I will retake one and post it soon..
 Here is the rear lower seat before & during tear down..

They are repo emblems from Firewheel Classics.

I found something on Team Camaro that said 2 1/6 from the pipping on the rear & 2 3/16 on the front buckets.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 Deluxe seat emblem location?? on: April 08, 2014, 12:04:30 PM
I am ready to start installing my 68 Houndstooth covers & I was wondering does anyone know the correct 68 Houndstooth seat emblem location? I figure I can look at a picture & guess but I would rather know the correct emblem placement. My car was originally a 712 car so I don't have anything to go off of? I have new buns for the front and I am using an old 69 Confortweive rear seat for the rear as the core.
 Thank you in advance,
 Nick

WOW!! It turned out beautiful. I am in the middle of restoring my marathon project 68 SSRS 396 & seeing yours motivates me to get mine done.  Smiley
 Outstanding job!!

Thank you guys, I do not know that is just a cheep 15.00 antenna I bought off of feebay. I just couldn't justify 200 bucks for an antenna. It's 30"s long if I remember right

Thank you guys, I installed the top today and got it all trimmed. What I did was, I laid the chrome moldings over the pins with out the clips and marked around the moldings with a sharpie. Then pulled them back off & used one of my wife's thin plastic cutting boards and slid it up under the top up to the pins & used a razor blade and slowly cut it just on the inside of the line. With the cutting board between the paint & vinyl I was able to trim it with out ever touching any of the paint. I did take a few pics but left the camera out in the garage so I'll try & post them tomorrow.

I would make sure you get a good vinyl top. Most that you see are too padded.

The top I bought came from Firewheel Classics, I hope it is right.

Thats a good looking color. Is that what color your car came from the factory?
Thank you. Yes Butternut was the original color although when I bought the car in 1980 it was Gold. I had it painted the 77 Corvette Yellow in first pics in 1981, but I have wanted to return it back to Butternut for probably 20 years. After hurting the big block at the drag strip in early 2006 I set it aside & started on the rotisserie resto the end of 2009.  I've worked on it off & on.. mostly off. lol..  over since, & painted it myself at home here in my garage last May through July.

Thank you, yes that is what I have done all these years Smiley
