Well you are gonna make a few friends on here right away, there is a contingent that like 68 the best. I like 67 and 69 , it would have to be a RS or a Z for me to bite on a 68. Just saying....
There are guys like Chick and Daryl that are big on the 67 and 8 and will come to your aid if you have any questions.

Hope you enjoy the site and all it offers at a great price.... Grin

Those are all bolt-ons. What matters is underneath.

That's what I'm talking about. If the shell isn't too bad, seems like it is worth the time.

Kurt,

If you gave me the $$ to do it, I wouldn't touch that car...  Smiley

Gary when I grew up in the 90's this was the typical project car. In fact I purchased a 66 Chevelle SS that looked identical to this car except with a couple of gallons of orange house paint on it for $900. I slapped an extra 396 and muncie in it I had laying around and drove it for 4 years as a daily driver, and had guys making me offers back then if you can believe it. So I have seen worse. I really wanted that car back then, and I couldn't afford a 8k driver so a project car fit my budget. I think I had around $1500 into it, and had fun drag racing it against my friends 10k muscle cars.

That Z/10 looks like it was taken down to metal and then parked outside?

The condition of this car kinda reminds me of another members car on here, that looked like a 20 footer maybe even a ten footer when he bought only to uncover a bunch of rust and shot patch panels underneath. The work looks about the same roughly.  If this car was media blasted or dipped, you would probably double the value right there. Then you could see what you have to work with. It doesn't look ir-repairable to me, but you would have to be passionate about it to get it done the right way. If you have a good title, and good VIN and trim tag along with a garage space to blow it all apart, that would be all the encouragement I would need.

This is assuming you got a good deal on the body, which may or may not be the deal killer here.
It would be cool to see it resurrected from the dead, Good luck with it

Final pic of the car?


You made the right choice, and they 20,302 of them, so not impossible to find another one.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: This Pic got me thinking.. on: December 02, 2014, 01:09:16 PM
Well one of the things I notice, is while agree the flash point is above the heater box, you will notice as you get farther away from the flash point along the upper cowl it gets less and less white, and by the time you reach the wiper motor it turns into a light overspray. Vs the passenger side where it is very bright white (very close to the flash), and even the rubber seal looks grey with a white (flash) stripe running along it.
This appears to be a 68 Z from the pic, is there no such examples of 68's with the cowl having any white overspray?

I think it would be interesting to know the percentage of all first gen Camaros with their original drivetrain. With big blocks getting swapped out, and the numerous changes guys made, including blowing up transmissions, and rear end swaps. Maybe another  poll is in order ??
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Poll: 1st gen Camaro vs. Stang on: December 02, 2014, 02:13:59 AM
thank you for the new topic Bently ( you got my juices going):
BUT What a lame poll.

Do you want a basic 65 mustang coupe with a 4 barrel 289?.....OR a 67 Camaro convertible SS/RS....

What decision?

The 67 Camaro convertible SS/RS should win all day long!

It would have been a more ideal poll had they said just a 67 Camaro hardtop with a 283 or 327 vs. a 67 Mustang Coupe with a 302.
Or if they would have had a 65,66 or 67 Mustang convertible GT vs. the highly optioned Camaro convertible.

Its all how they ask the question in the poll. To me the fine details in the poll question skew wether the 1st gen mustang or the camaro is more popular.

( BTW I have owned a couple of each, and they both have there pros and pros Cheesy.....)

Thank God for this great country and the beautiful vehicles that have been manufactured here, and been available for the masses to afford and drive.

Sometimes I feel like I am living the dream... other times I feel like I'm DRIVING the dream!

Hmm you sold your Camaro but still bought parts from him, makes me think you may own more than 1 Camaro at that house....

I like the goodie boxes, exciting to say the least.

I really like the color on that olds. It seems to be a great color for the big A bodies, a 70 Chevelle in that color is a favorite of mine.

Well I hope Steve was pleasant while you were in San Bruno.

Very nice pic of your car. I am a fan of red though.... Grin
