1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1968 Camaro standard lower valance types on: August 24, 2014, 05:13:40 AM
Hello everyone: I hope this finds my Camaro family doing well.

I recently discovered I had two standard but different lower valances for my 68 currently in the body shop... one has additional holes and flanges on the inward lips... I know I should have taken some photos... but in my state of mind the CRS disorder must have flared up... as I never even thought about photos, which really amazes me when I do these things.. typically I take millions of photos...  Just so there is no added confusion; I am NOT talking about the RS lower valance.  The only things come to mind is possible bumper guards or a change within the production year... and I think 67 is different ruling that out

I'll post some photos asap... 

PS  You all better watch out... This CRS stuff is contagious....so please be aware of it

What's that CRS you say?


CAN'T REMEBER STUFF   Grin

PS   I would suggest that you try to find 2 very close build date original (not restored) cars to yours,,find something just prior to your car and something just after...

This way you are more likely going to be correct ... but bare in mind what i wrote above. 

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1968 z/28 brake booster inspection mark on: April 14, 2013, 11:23:36 PM
why?   If you did not find it maybe your car did not have it.  Did you have it but re-plate without documenting it? I have a photos of an OEM 68 Z28 booster with no markings that I can see. 

What I am trying to say is that too many folks put marks all over their car because they saw it on another Camaro and they think that is what is correct when in fact it may not be...  for example the inspection marks on a part may have been for a group of inspected parts and not every part got it... besides that things changed from day to day and car to car...

In order to preserve the true history one should only restore what they find on their car... 

Please don't take me the wrong way... I am just trying to be helpful so with that said, it is your car...

as of this hour 09:52 Eastern time April 12, 2013 

IMHO I do not believe there are any OEM 499's on eBay  ...

and only one 170 OEM... out of several listed for $,$$$

with the possible exception of the one 499 listed above AND the Heartbeat City.. his 499's can't be seen with the photo he provides. and his 170s appear to OEM,, but again the photo is the issue. 

again these folks may have been the victim...

Also for those of you who are looking for a distributor  ... feel free to email me... I will look at it and give you my evaluation about it.   Grin

Right now there are quite a few distributors on eBay for $,$$$ ...  and IMHO not OEM so BEWARE.   Sad

here is a 169 dist that appears to have been sand or glass blasted..  the housings finish is ruined. This distributor could be real or faked.. best to pass on these...

BTW you can set up any dist to run just like the Hi Perf ones... you may need to change the weights, springs and re-curve it etc...

there is even a 327 dist on eBay I would stay away from too...

you 're probably right, and i should have thought more before I posted in that manner... I think that he was either taken and believes it to be real or the distributor he has was poorly restored making it appear to be a fake...  unfortunately some folks have with good intentions destroyed real McCoy parts by trying to make them appear new again...

I suspect he was going on someone else s reassurance and creditability of it being a real McCoy.. but from the photos he posted it strongly appears to not be an OEM.

There are a  number of folks doing business on eBay with fraudulent parts who well know what they are doing.  We see it from Cowl tags, to Vin numbers and to all the rare and Hi Perf. parts as well as to the car themselves being pushed as real just to steal some guys hard earned $$$$$$$$... look at all the fake paperwork be pushed out now... i would be more Leary of any guy with all the paperwork than one without any these days... unfortunately I would guess there are some forgeries out there that are so perfect they fool almost everyone. 

BTW I have personally contacted eBay many times about items that was without a doubt fraudulently advertised and sometimes eBay did something about it and sometimes not. IMHO When it is brought to their (eBays) attention they then have a moral obligation to address the matter regardless of any disclaimers they write and post. 

Also when anything out the norm appears it too brings into suspicion of fraud.  After 40 years of handling, racing and working with Chevrolet parts one learns. 

I had some more photos to post but they are to big and now I cannot get the photo program to reduce them smaller so that will wait for another day.
