Original owner paid 6 months of payments only.  I would love to buy a car and make only 6 months of payments and still get to own it 42 years later.  What a deal!  Not going to happen.

The insurance company paid off the bank for the whole car.  Who do you think should own the rights to it now?  Just sayin. Smiley

Pad looks aged as if it was rusted.  No expert here, but that stamp looks to be a little too fresh and crisp on an otherwise OLD looking surface . JMO

Does anyone have any input as to the placement of the grille emblem ?

Looks Perfect to me.

Hurst will do it.  Download the form and fill it out. :~D  Mine came out nice.

Rear wheel well moldings have small holes for the attaching screws.  The screws should be included. 

The fronts did not need screws due to the large fender bolts holding them in place.

I used Apple Hydraulics to re-sleeve my master cylinder.  Pics are in the master cylinder cover thread. Very nice work.

The original front wheel well moulding has the holes in it for the fender bolts.  I don't know why they would not still come that way?  That is how they are attached.

Is that VIN in the database?

The stamp on the machined surface is a date stamp with shift of production.  There is not any way to know what vehicle it was originally installed on from that stamp.  It would be critical to examine all the mounting holes to be sure it would work for you.

You and your seller may already know this but it was news to me at one time.   It is important to be sure the pump is machined for our application.  These smog pumps were used across all the GM lines and they all would have the same casting number on the back of the pump.  The castings are machined differently for different applications.  Example - A Smog pump from a 73 Caddy will have the same general shape and the same "149" casting number on the back of the pump BUT the holes and threaded mounting bosses are not machined the same as the pumps installed on our Chevy engines.  They look very close but will not bolt up.

12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 camaro Z28 Shifter rods on: January 15, 2015, 11:55:09 AM
I would be very skeptical about that being factory.  The 1970-1/2 Muncie tail housing and the '70-1/2 -'72 Camaro shifter mounting plate are completely different and will not interchange with '69 pieces.  The later '70 console is not in the same place as the '69 console so the shifter would not end up in the right place.  The '70 and up tail housing has only 3 bolt holes and they are not like any of the 5 on the '69 and earlier tail housing.

Can the '70-'72 shift rods be used with a '69 style shifter/mounting plate/tailhousing? - I would not be surprised at all if the rods can be forced to work but they are not being used as originally designed.  They could be field installed and be functional,  just not factory installed.  JMO.

Classic Headquarters seems to be what I used if I remember right.  SOFT.  Came with a kit of mixed vendors.

Brace is still very NOS available and cheap so I can't see it being all that rare.  Maybe the design has changed?  I would sell it if the money was right. 

The wiring clip is pretty cool. I would not let it go without doing some more research about it.  Those kinds of pieces are pretty hard to find when you need one.  If you "need" one, you $$$"NEED"$$$ it. :~D

I tried KYB, Monroe, and Bilstein on my '69.  The Monroes were last and best.  They are on the front now but I have a new project in mind to replace my poly control arm bushings with regular rubber style and will report back after I re-evaluate them.  Didn't like the KYB's much so I ripped them off.  I absolutely LOVE the Bilsteins on my C3 Vette and would not trade them for anything else on that car.  On the '69 Camaro the Bilsteins were not as impressive when used with the poly bushing setup.

Gotta replace the control arm bushings and try again....
