16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: New Member just purchased a 1969 X77 D80 on: October 03, 2014, 08:23:04 PM
Very hesitant to cut out the entire floor with this one since it appears to be a correct X77 D80.

Should I attempt a restoration, just stab in something to drive it until the proper drivetrain can be located or sell it as is to someone that can do the work correctly?


Welcome aboard.  In the end it's your car to do with as you please.  I would be real hesitant to cutting out the floor pan route.  Remember that the original drivetrain may never be located, so I would go the route of restoring it and putting in a period correct drivetrain.
17  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / White paint on 67 LOS Cowl Tag on: October 03, 2014, 05:40:00 PM
I certainly don't want to open an old wound about White paint on the Cowl Tag.  But, i read completely through the thread about White paint on the Norwood Cowl Tags, and saw no  mention if it was also done at Van Nuys.  My LOS Cowl Tag looks as if it had white paint under the black.

Personally, I like the red, but I tire of seeing non-Z cars with Z-stripes.
How about this, which is what it originally looked like?

I like that look also.  I considered many options, even some different colors.  One option I considered was original Bolero Red with "Stinger" Hood with "Stinger" stripe.  I still 2 nd. guess that option some times.

Mike,
Interesting on the number. I know you have an 11a also. Does it have these other numbers? Mine does not.
Thanks-Chris

Chris,  Yes, mine has those #'s.  I'm assuming you're talking about the A638.

Q: I was looking at your vin tag and noticed what looks like 3 numbers stamped above the production number (106 or 186?) I don't recall seeing that before. Anyone?
67rs327,  that's an inter-plant production run #, was only used in LOS.

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?
