That '67 low mileage survivor Z/28 with 13,xxx miles is nice, saying believed to be the most original in existence. . I just talked to someone last summer who was inspecting a '67 Z/28 with 11,000 original miles in spectacular condition. Probably one with even lower miles out there somewhere. Too much fun. Thanx for all the effort. D

Here are a couple of his feedbacks:
Terrible experience, seller said he would ship large item and he had a box. After auction ended he requested I buy a box. Then wrapped part part in cardboard and wanted me to pay extra $50 to ship. I paid $500 and he said he didn't have the money to ship the part. I offered to pay several times for shipping, but he wasn't able to provide a shipping cost. Please be careful. I had to seek a refund from eBay. Thank goodness for eBay's guarantee.
1965 mustang NOS front fender C5ZZ – 16006 – A (#284988503440)

Seller totally ghosted me, finally got back with a “I’m not available until the end of the month” after I contacted eBay Item was very expensive and had to have eBay step in to help get a refund Buyer beware.   D

And the left rivet is not folded over correctly? Been off the car, a car?   Danny

Oh, I see... I know you should not see the rivets. So the dash isn't pulled over far enough? Are those rivets correct GM?... D

Exactly.. Big hardware store rivets. Tag has been removed at one time? He got a good price for it. I wonder if that POP was legit. Oh well, gone now. New owner problem... D

Do we know what the finish was on the metal dash top between the pad and the windshield on 1968 Camaros? Thanks... Danny

 Indy - Yes, Blue Gear....

 DK - If it has the factory set-up GM should have made sure it was accurate. Contact Muncie and work it out.

 Bronze - When the trans was pulled for inspection and clutch install, it looked to have never been opened up. The side cover
 gasket was original. Everything inside was in good original shape. Maybe they pulled it apart at the tail shaft? I believe I am the
 3rd owner and the car sat for almost 30 years. I am going to guess it was never apart. Who knows, I am curious to see what
 happens with some other cars. Maybe I'll post my findings. Just glad it is very accurate now. Thanx for the suggestion on gear 6-
 pack. ... Danny

Well, I got it figured out. It had a 23 that was WAY off. I tried a 22 and it fixed it by 5MPH. Then I tried a 21 and an 18 and it seemed to go the wrong way. Then 20 tooth and BINGO, DEAD ON. It read perfect from 25 to 65. I was amazed how accurate it was. At 70MPH on the speedo, it read by satellite at 72. That was the only real change. And I won't be going that fast or above that speed. I was mainly concerned from 40 to 60. So if you have a M21 - 3:73 and are running Good Year E70/15's, this would be a good starting point for accuracy. Going to check some of my other cars and see what happens. I am shocked GM missed it by that much. But maybe some things changed in thousands of miles? The internal gear was in nice shape. And the 23 tooth I took out was also perfect?  Danny
