Went to 3,550, which is a fair price. I don't think you'll see much higher than that, unless the original car would show up.  Anyone else buying it would probably value it like you stated above " But it's not original" 

If someone pays $8000 for it, I'm betting they are in the re-stamp mode.   Sad

I didn't call, but nothing on their website.

I've installed 3 Vintage Air Systems, 2 on 1st Gen Camaros and 1 on a 66 Chevelle, and they work excellent. I did use the March Serp pulley system on all 3. On all there cars, I ran everything behind the fender, makes for a very clean look.

Give Frank a call at Prodigy Customs; he can help with the details for the install, he has several tips and tricks, and excellent prices and customer service.

x2 on Bob Harris. I just got my 4 leafs for my Z28 and they are exactly as my originals, very satisfied.

21  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 68 Camaro Passenger Assist Handle (Grab Bar) on: September 02, 2012, 10:01:24 AM
Does anyone know if the bezels used on the 68 Grab handle, on the dash is interchangeable with those from the 69? I have my originals, but would probably spend a week moving boxes to get to them. If not, anybody making the 68's (I haven't see any)?

Thanks,
Paul

Too bad they won't correct it, looks like they would have some immediate sells.
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Repo Radiator Tag 68 Z28 on: August 19, 2012, 05:30:52 AM
Has anyone started making a correct radiator tag for 68 Z28? I have my original Radiator, but somewhere in it's life the tag was removed (can still see where it was).
Still looks like they are incorrect.
Thanks,
Paul
24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: DSE solid subframe mounts - stock bolts too short ! on: August 18, 2012, 09:06:42 AM
Being that this is the restoration section, it may be more appropriate in the "mild modification" section, but in my opinion, the benefit of the solids is the tighter frame, especially when combined with frame connectors.  Another good site is Team Camaro, there are lots of posts on the pro's and con's of solids. Again, my opinion, made a huge difference in the handling of my car, but would never use them on my original Z28.

What's the purpose or benefit of solid bushings? Not trying to side track the thread just curious.

Jason,

For the record, my pump does not have the bushing. I have to agree with Chick, I  would think a judge would take points for the bushing.

Paul

Thanks for the responses fellas.  Paul, that link was interesting hadn't come across it.  That the factory might have issued the car with a reducer bushing, means I can too.  I have Jerry's book but didn't see that mentioned, will have to look again.

JohnZ covered the different quarters here:

http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3935.0

I was thinking mine may be original, but maybe they are repros. My wires say 2Q and 3Q on them which I assume is 2nd quarter and 3rd quarter, which seems right since I have a 08C car. Do you have a choice of what date your wires say with reproduction wires?

Ed, I think you correct on the repo tach, colors are pretty dull, compared to my original.

Danny, if you want to go look at it just to go look at it, can you get the VIN and the trim tag info for me? Also the VIN on the engine pad. I can't see the last few numbers.

As for it being a real Z, the chances are doubtful. Yes, it has the 6k tach, but it appears to be a repop, and the gauges are 70's Nova. That and the small aftermarket tach at the lower part the dash tells me it's not working, so it probably didn't even come with the gauges. The steering wheel is hard to tell, but it may also be a repop. The horn button is for sure. The woodgrain radio bezel's from a Firechicken and the front and rear spoiler has more than likely been added. Check for the larger diameter torson rod in the trunk for that. Aftermarket shifter and cheapo traction bars as well.

Check for the 4 piston calipers and 12 bolt. He says it's got a 3.73 posi axle, but he didn't say if it's a 12 bolt or not. See what the VIN is on the transmission and if you can get at it, what the axle code and date are.

It's currently at 18k, which is about right for a car that's not really a Z. I wouldn't go too much over that unless he can prove what he says.

Ed
