Restoration / 68 4spd xmsn shifter
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:00:13 PM »
My 68 SS has an older muncie m21 4spd (casting 3851325).  Has the speedo cable on the left side & appears to be out of a 1963-65 chevy/nova/etc.  Since it was just rebuilt (over $1900), I'm not ready to replace it with a numbers matching xmsn(yet).  I'd like to change the linkage/shifter to the correct 68 muncie. Does anyone know if the 68 linkage/shifter will work ok?  Thanks

Restoration / 1968 SS hood hinge spring
« on: July 28, 2009, 04:30:26 PM »
I'm trying to determine if my 68 SS w/SS hood has the correct hood hinge springs.  My car has 26 wound coils per spring & holds the hood up just fine.  In aftermarket catalogs & at a recent car show I've seen 28 coils.   Now I see in some catalogs the replacement non SS spring has 22 coils.   What's correct?

Restoration / GM Mark of Excellence Decal
« on: July 18, 2009, 03:50:17 PM »
Follow up to an earlier question on the Mark Of Excellence Decal.  I understand most/all 68's did not have the decals.  I'm helping a friend with a 67' RS & he wants to put the Decal(s) on.  In photos/books/e Bay postings we see many different locations on the door jamb.  Some show the bottom of the decal level with the screw.  Some show the decal between the door latch & the screw.  What would be correct.  Regarding my 68 SS.  Have a Muncie M21, but it has a white shift lever ball...thought the correct was black with a chrome base.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the help.  Looks like I'll be making one myself.

Restoration / 1968 seat back stop cable
« on: July 03, 2009, 04:05:07 PM »
Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement seat back stop cable and cable to cushion screw?  This is the cable on the passenger side bucket seat .  I have the upper cable attaching screw.  Also, wondered what brand, & paint color # is preferred when respraying a black SS grill (non RS). Thanks.

Restoration / 1968 correct ss grill

Restoring my 68 SS & unclear when the LA factory changed grill colors.  My Camaro was built during the 4th week of April, 1968.  It's a non RS. Should the grill be silver or black.  Thanks

Restoration / parking brake release handle - 68 Camaro
« on: June 16, 2009, 04:02:12 PM »
I'm replacing the Parking Brake Release Handle on my 1968, and am unclear how it should be fastened.  The replacement handle does not appear to have internal threads.  Is it a friction fit, glue on, or am I just not seeing the threads?  It's a correct handle, not a generic one.   Thanks

Restoring my 68.  Does anyone know the exact placement of the Mark Of Excellence decal on the door(s).  How many inches down or up, & left to right?  Do both doors have the decal?  Some literature shows driver's side only.
