1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 19, 2014, 01:43:06 PM
I am still looking for information on Shea Chevrolet in Hackensack NJ where my 69 Z28 was sold. Any help/leads would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I just received my shipping report (#644) for my 69 Z28 and the original delivery dealer was:

Shea Chevrolet Co.
Hackensack NJ

Production date was on June 6, 1969 which corresponds with the 06a trim tag info. Does anybody know anything about this dealer?  I understand that in 2012 it filed for bankruptcy and was closed that year, but would still like to know if anybody has any history on it and if there are any records that are still around. I know it is a long shot but I had to ask!

I looked long and hard for some original black comfortweave material for my Z28 and I even tried SMS'  "NOS" material. Go over to Camaros.net and search for comfortweave material- the whole story along with photos of the "comfortweave" material is there.  Found 1 yard of real NOS material from another supplier which is just enough to do my seat bottoms and a small patch in the rear seat back cushion.

Those parts look really good. I will definitely try the glass bead the next time around; same with the WD-40/Boeshield treatment. Looks like I should oil them up a bit..

I have not tried WD-40, I usually just rinse the parts in cool water afterward. Then I  treat it with the finishing oil that comes with the parkerizing kits. I also believe the deposits are more a function of the process and the better the process is followed, e.g. water levels are correctly, the temp. maintained  and the parts clean, etc., will help control the deposits more than can be accomplished after the fact.

I parkerized quite a few of the under hood parts that were either mag or zinc phosphate, including some big parts like the hood hinges. In my  experience, cleaning and temp control are really important. I tried to stay away from sandblasting because the surface texture is usually changed with a rougher texture and detail is lost. I would start by treating the parts with Evaporust and if that didn't work, short dips in muriatic acid would usually do the trick. Then I cleaned them with purple degreaser and then placed the parts in boiling distilled water and without touching the part, transferred it to the solution. I used a barbeque and a 3/8" metal plate under the SS pan to maintain the temp as close to 190 Degrees as I could. I used the finishing oil that comes with the kit and it has worked pretty well. I am near the coast and I don't see any significant changes in the finish from new; just sort of a nice aged look.

Hi John

I have never heard of that before. Is there any more info on it available and is it mean anything in terms of the car?

I have come across a 70 Z that has a national press showing notification on the bottom of the build sheet. What is the significance of this and is there any additional information available on this topic? Thanks.

Does anybody have any opinion on the surface of this distributor? I don't remember seeing any of these original aluminum distributors with that rough of a surface?

10  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Need someone to check out a 70 Z in the Toronto Area on: August 19, 2012, 11:51:53 AM
Does anybody know of someone local to the Toronto area that could check out a 70 Z in the Toronto area?  I am on the west coast and would like someone to check it out for me before I get too serious.

Hi John:

Yes I did, but unfortunately the thread got off topic and caught up in a bunch of back and forth, which didn't really answer my question. So far, I have gotten some general comments but nothing convincing. Without going into it too far, I am considering buying this car and the TT is the only Z validation I have to go on, other than the usual Z specific components. I was trying to save my self the time and hassle if the TT doesn't look right, that's all.

Anybody else have any opinions that you might share? 
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1970 Z28 Trim Tag Opinions on: August 13, 2012, 02:17:25 AM
Any specifics? My eye isn't trained enough to pick out all of the various indicators.

Any opinions on this trim tag originality?
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Ebay Listing-1970 Z28 on: July 11, 2012, 01:15:35 AM
Took me a while to remember where I saw this car before. It was listed by RK Motors a month or two ago and was advertised at $39,900. The new owner even used their ad copy and photos. Looks like a textbook example of a flipper, but who knows.
