Just wanted to run it and do a compression check before ripping it out and apart. probably see what it has for pistons, change the cam, and turn the power up a little bit. nothing worse than a muscle car that cant spin the rear tires!
  Mine was 210 hp. 2 bbl., it's now pushing 400 hp.  Has "Double-hump" 2.02 Heads,  Comp. cam (480 lift), a REAL Z ...610 intake, 10.3 comp.  Has a "built" TH 350 with a 2500 stall Converter, and 4:11  12 bolt Posi.   Git-R-Done.  The Heads and Forged Crank are '64 Vette pieces. Put in all ARP bolts, I think it will hold together.  I've "thrashed" some other 327's before in my lifetime that weren't put together near as well as this one.

A couple questions in my mind, but the first one, the front fenders, where they always rust out between the support and the skin, on the lower section, is there a way to permanently seal that so it doesnt happen again? Or just coat it with undercoating and hope for the best?  Seems a bad design, the way stuff can get in there and not get out (obviously as they commonly rust there)
  I know what you're saying, but most of our cars at this point in their lives lead pretty pamper lives, so you'll most likely never see the rust issue again in your lifetime.  You could always spray a little truck bed liner in there, would probably be better than under-coating.  Or, I have a spray bomb can of plastic coating, not sure where I got it, or for what.

It makes noise, on its own, wanted to see if it will run before ripping it out, sounds pretty good!
What is that squelling noise?  I wouldn't run it too long or too often without a radiator.  BTW; mine has the original 327 in it also.  Dressed up to look like a 302.  Lot of real 302 trim pieces.

its origionally coded a turbo 350 with a console?  It has the column shifter and only a L and D, so I assumed powerglide, but it def has a TH350 in it.
Thanks!

Welcome MooneyD!  Nice project you got there.  It would have came with a Powerglide, TH 350's didn't come along until very late '68, a few Camaros were used as "Mules".  There should be a 2M on the lower left of your Cowl Tag.   BTW, your car seems very similar to mine.

I will always remember 911.  This is how our Fire Department remembers.

Congrats Danny.  Good news.  I  too am a survivor.  I had Kryogenic (frozen) Prostate surgery Jan. 20, my 6 month (Aug.) check-up my PSA is 0.05.

That car need era correct wheels like Cragars sized accordingly front and rear, with proper tires to go with the endless line, and ladder bars. Then it will be a suitable candidate for http://70sstreetmachines.tumblr.com/linkage
Larry, like the stripes, those were very popular back in the early 70's.  I, myself like the "Day 2" theme.

wtexz10,  are you talking of 700R4, or 200R4, when you say you needed to modify the tunnel?
26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 16, 2014, 01:46:50 AM
Thanks for for all the input guys.  Does the 200R4 use a similar relay to the 700R4?
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 14, 2014, 09:31:27 PM
Yes, I already know I need to have a shorter Driveshaft, and a different Crossmember.  I am concerned about modifying the Trans. Tunnel.
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Swapping a 700R 4 into a 67 on: August 14, 2014, 03:16:19 PM
  i have been considering swapping a 700 R 4 Trans. into my 67.  It will be bolted behind my original 327 engine now pushing 400 hp.  I now have a "built" TH 350 in there, backed by a 4:11 Posi rear-end.  Looking for a little better Gas mileage, and lower RPM's on the road.  Many people have told me this would be a great combo.  My question is; I just heard that I may have to do some modifying to the Trans Tunnel to get it to fit.  Is this right???  I really don't like the idea of doing that.

Why do we have to take it so personal when someone gives their "opinion" as to whether or not something is legit?  I started out on this site quoting Colvin, saying I had a rare DZ block casting # and really thought I had something.  Then it was divulged that it wasn't so rare at all and Colvin kind of jumped the gun.  Info comes and changes things.  At first I thought screw you guys, you don't know what you're talking about.  Then I had a 480 dist. from a 69 DZ engine that was in my 68 and the engine was put in there 35 years ago.  The experts said the 480 was a restamp.  I could try to justify it all day long as being there before anyone would want or need to restamp something,  But the consensous of experts was that it is a restamp, so there is nothing short of me having a video of the dist. being made that is going to change what the experts say, so I have to live with it and am selling it on the basis and price of being a restamp.  Am I happy that this was the outcome? No.  But I have to accept the reality of things or be bitter and lash out.  I would rather not be bitter, so it's a choice of accepting reality.  I do not take it personal. 

Ed I wish you would reconsider.
X2 , I wish you would reconsider.  You have added a lot of good input here.  I also ran into some input here that didn't agree with what I believed, and still do, to be original parts(seatbelts).  I cleaned them up and used them anyhow, and let the subject drop.  My car is not a "high-dollar" car anyhow, so how important is it?
