211  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 3 Speed Auto Steering Column to 4 Speed on the floor Question on: March 11, 2013, 10:41:54 PM
I am changing from a 3 speed auto on the column to a 4 speed on the floor and I am wondering if I can still use my steering column. Obviously I need to remove the shifter handle. However, what other changes do I need to make. Or would it be easier/make more sense to buy another unit. If using my existing is inexpensive and an easy swap, I would prefer to go that route.

Thanks

Thanks Steve good to know.  How does the rest of the carb look?

Hi Gary here is a picture of a 4053 I found that has just been restored. I just had it on the dyno and it works great.

I wonder if the wing nut on my original car is correct? Were all wing-nuts created equal?

I think this may be my all time favorite Camaro. Thanks for posting the great articles. My next car should be this one. However in the above picture it looks like a rally sport, but Smokeys cars looked like non RS cars to me. How many cars did he run? This would be the only RS I have seen.

Noticed this one was removed from auction - wonder if it sold, or just removed for further tweaking ? Pretty car, but details like the shroud warning tag are an instant flag that someone didn't complete their homework assignment -

Regards,
Steve

Agreed

Thanks for PMing me. I look forward to following your build.

Great Looking car. Like to 70.5 as well. I had a '71 Z28 in 1979, my first car. It had a transplanted drive train from a total 1970 Z28. 4:10 rear gear M22 and real factory LT1. When I bought the car the drive train was long gone and replaced, with a generic motor and non posi hiway diff. That car was a rocket ship. I really miss it. That is whty I am putting the same drive train in my '69. Looking forward to pics when you get it painted. Azure is one of my favorite colours.

Too bad. Looks like someone spent some time to do a not bad restoration. CAutions sticker is always a dead give away that not enough research was done on the car. I just don't get why this is such a problem. Hasn't it been discussed enough for people to catch on?

I see 11 69 - fits well. That one digit it barely stamped.....

Thanks Kurt, that would explain the mystery. I could not make out the first 1 at all.
222  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Old pictures of the 1969 Z/28 I owned in the late '70's on: March 03, 2013, 10:10:08 PM
Sorry it's Gen 2 but I didn't get my '69 till 2006!  My first Camaro, '70 Z28, 4-sp., motor stock except Nitrous, 1-off glassed-in back spoiler.  Yes it's posi- just a windy day. Pics from '78, owned it '77-'79, almost died the day I sold it but needed the money for college.

Nice car. I had a '71 Z28, with the entire drive train from a totalled '70 Z28 in 1979, all stock. My first car as well. Brings back great memories.

I have an original tank in my car and it is covered with a really thick coat of dealer installed undercoating. Its a Canadian car with the undercoating option on the options sheet. Should I remove the undercoating or keep it that way? I am not crazy about the look. It is just a 6 banger car. I would like to have a nice clean tank as the cars has just been painted. I have a new tank I can install, but is there any point keeping the original and does anyone care if this car retains its original tank. I was thinking of saving all of the orginal parts since this car is very original currently. Pretty well everthing for the most part is original except tires, paint, front windshield, some hoses and hose clamps etc.

Here is a Pic of my tank. Car is 11C. It does not seem to match the tank chart.

224  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z/28 Crossram JL8 on eBay.. Real JL8 Car? on: December 27, 2012, 11:07:50 PM
The car was for sale at least 6 years ago on ebay, and back then it did not have a cross ram or J-l8 option. Obviously there must be a problem with this car if they are using pictures that are over 6 years old. Obviously they have made upgrades to the car since it was for sale previously. It was for sale by dealer back then as well. I have sen this car for sale at least a half dozen times.

So many things wrong with the car, no shift pattern on the shifter ball, bright trim on the pedals, has repop door panels, front grill emblem in the wrong place, head rests have stitching, wrong bolts holding down firewall wire gutter, looks like after market inner fenders, gap on passenger side rear quarter panel to lower valence is huge, repop gas tank straps, lower rockers should be painted black and the list goes on...
