211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro RS SS Convertible on: October 18, 2011, 12:05:42 PM
What will bring up the value is having the factory original  drivetrain.  A non-original 327 isn't much different than having a non-original 350 in most peoples opinions.  An L30 version of the 327, if you had one, isn't much lower in performance than the 350.  Aside from that, the previous owner was probably just looking at ease of replacement when he went with a 327 over say a big block.  Being sold in Canada isn't as big a value factor as having documentation, which happens to be more readily available on Canadian than most of the US sold cars still around, due to their records requirements.  As you get into this, you'll see that Chevrolet wasn't big on keeping a lot of records, to include combinations of options on cars sold.   

You may want to post up your trim tag, P-O-P, any docs at some point, and look at trans and rear axle codes to see if original.  First step is to start reading all the info on this site, then post questions or use the forum search feature as you learn about things.  Knowing what your intentions are for the car will also help folks here give you advice.  BTW that white paint looks like butternut yellow, must be the lighting.

Also, if you end up searching for the original block etc, do not broadcast your full VIN as unfortunately there are shady characters with stamp sets, who will magically find (counterfeit) your original engine.

Must have been driven pretty hard if it was really on the road for only 4 to 5 years.  Note the "$10.00" on the RH exhaust manifold.
213  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Rally wheel valve stem length on: September 29, 2011, 02:58:40 PM
Anyone know the correct length - either overall or protruding from the rim to cap - for rally wheel valve stems?  Specifically 67 DG 14x6 wheels.  I believe they were Dill 627s, but seems like there are various lengths for this number.  Thanks.

I believe it has also been mentioned on this site that for any judged event, points will be deducted for having the kit installed, even though it was a recall.  Has to be how it left the factory, pre-recall.  
215  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Engine Hold down cable on: September 05, 2011, 09:28:25 PM
Engine lift stop cable, also sometimes referred to as a stop lift kit.  They were recently discussed over at the TC site, probably here as well if you search.

Maybe try Grainger or McMaster Carr for suitable tubing.  McMaster usually has good descriptions of the material and strength.  If not showing the car, you could just add a small length of braided sleeve or spring like you see used on some hoses for protection.
217  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Need help on orig. 68 std Gas Cap on: August 20, 2011, 08:07:38 PM
Must be a drive rivet, similar to the types shown on page 156 of the AMK catalog.  Maybe a little JB weld down the hole ahead of the rivet? Seems you'd need a special tool or mallet to keep from smashing the head.

Just wondering if I should tell him and show the proof, or just let it be.

Most likely you'll get an arguement and told you don't know squat, especially if they bought it from someone else, thinking it was genuine and now realize they were duped.

If you're no longer interested I'd just walk away, maybe just say there were discrepancies.  If they really want to know what they are, they'll ask.  If you're still interested definitely use it as a bargaining tool and walk if things get heated.   

If you have any info like VIN or trim tag the mods here or at TC site may want to add to their databases, so any future buyers know that at least the paperwork is fake, if not more.     

219  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: console gauge car or not? on: August 17, 2011, 01:16:27 PM
Does it have the original engine?  Gauge cars used a different temp sender unit and you'd have the small brass oil pressure fitting and plastic hose on the top rear of the block.  The temp sending unit for gauges has a connector that sort of resembles the head of a common nail, while the unit for indicator light is a blade type connector.  Looks like this:

Saw these, but I don't think this is what you want plus looks like they floor mount for the front:  http://wescoperformance.stores.yahoo.net/am4point.html

IMO, there are other safety factors that come into play before the benefits of going from a 3 to 4 point belt.  Stuff like no crumple zones, air bags, or side impact reinforcement etc like you have on modern cars.  My point is, belts are just part of the total safety system.  In a road collision there may be bigger issues like the steering column or something else, things you cannot change on these older cars if staying original.

Steve - PM sent.
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Well liner installation on: August 13, 2011, 08:29:52 AM
The Fisher Body service manual has a detailed section on installing tops and how the pieces get layered.  Also if you go to the Team Camaro site forums they have a section for convertibles.  A topic search there will probably find you an answer as well.  Don't know off the top of my head, never attempted an installation.   
223  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Convertible Rear Speaker on: July 23, 2011, 09:33:18 PM
Yep, plus to verify on a 67 you would have the group 2 code R on the trim tag for the rear speaker option U80.
224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Convertible Rear Speaker on: July 23, 2011, 11:54:22 AM
I'll chech the p/n later today - I had a speaker guy in Ohio who had a rebuilt pair that I was looking at, however I just needed one for the 67 setup and he didn't want to split the pair.  He was offering me the pair at $170, but I'm not certain 67 and 69 used the same one.
225  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68' A Arm & Frame Dust Shields on: July 21, 2011, 01:29:21 PM
Sorry if I'm derailing this topic, but does anyone have a tip for a correct looking roll-over on the staples ends?  Is a "camel-hump" appearance correct?  I was thinking about using a pair of needle nose and rolling over, then push it down a little more into the rubber.
