There should be a third choice to vote for. Buy a car that is in good cond.
I agree. How about buy an original rolling chassis, use your hood and doors, find some decent fenders. I also agree with Charley, that it would probably be worth more, and the original parts would fit better.

So what which car would have made it out the door first? Does your earlier trim tag indicate your car just left the fisher plant before his, but once it was at GM, his got done first? What is the build week of his car vs. yours?

no argument here, just speculating how far back the problem could go and wondering if it is possible to nail the original guy who passed it off as a nicely restored car, but knew better.

Perhaps the dealer that sold it to him, bought it without knowing the extent of the damage as well. Could it be possible it has changed hands a couple times since being "fixed" up?
Is there a statute of limitations when fraud is committed?
7  Orphans - documentation or VIN-stamped drivetrains - in search of the original cars / 1967 - Orphans / 7N118626 Protecto plate on ebay on: July 23, 2014, 09:24:27 AM
I hope this post finds the owner of a 1967 Camaro convertible with vin number 123677N118626. It looks like it was originally a 6 cylinder car as well. Your protecto plate just popped up on ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-Camaro-Owners-Manual-Protecto-Plate-/261301998217?pt=Motors_Manuals_Literature&hash=item3cd6d01289

The ebay seller is 1968fastgto

good luck!

Thanks, I miss it already. From your pic yours looks like a Garnet Red Z as well right?

Hey man keep looking. If you have seen the recent topic of Danny getting the 68 Z, there are good finds out there.

Well even though they don't have all the details, and there was some poor decision making going on, I hope all involved come out healthy and learn from the accident.

After seeing those CLR pics, I would love to see a couple before and after of your car done, it seems like a great candidate for it. I am happy for you and your girlfriend, hope you guys have a good time on Sunday.

"As for oil type and brand, lots of debates on that.  You might consider one of the oils for diesel engines. "

Actually there are different detergents in the diesel oil like Delo, or the Shell rotella , that are not helpful for a naturally aspirated motor. They do contain a little bit more zinc, but are counter-productive because of the other additives specific for diesel motors. I have researched this some. The previously mentioned Joe Gibbs oil, I think Royal Purple may make a special high zinc oil, and the classic car oil, would be the best for it. I think you can also use the Lucas break in oil, along with just your typical motor oil as Jano stated as well, and be in good shape.

I am guessing it was originally a non tach car.
