Greatly appreciated.
The two I can find are not the right ones.
Currently have a green button from an arcade game wired in, works but looks terrible. LOL.

Hello everyone.
Any ideas on where I can find a neutral safety switch for a 67 Camaro that has a 700R4 transmission?

Thanks

Hi Everyone;
I finally seem to be finished with most of the restoration on my 67 Camaro. Only thing I may do is put in a modern transmission (and keep the original).
I have a question.
How rare is the 67 RS/SS Convertible? It was a Canadian car and has the build sheet from GM.
No Protecto Plate or dealer info.
It has a date and period correct 350 engine that has been built with a mild cam.
Otherwise original. Back to Tahoe Turquoise paint as well.
How rare and roughly what would it be worth? I am keeping the car and will never sell it. But my insurance company is looking for value and I think they are pretty low.
What are your thoughts?
4  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Dash from Wauseon Ohio to Colorado on: September 26, 2012, 01:51:54 AM
Hi guys;
i am in search of someone in Montana close to Sweetgrass if possible.
I have bought a dash out of a 57 Olds for my 57 Buick project but they cant ship to Canada due to oversize.
It would be great if I could find someone to ship it to and to come down and pick it up.
Please let me know if you are close.

thanks

Ok. I am back and have had the starter issue corrected.
Turns out that it was the starter. I purchased a higher quality starter and the problem is fixed. Strange since we tried two other starters.
But this high performance one works like a charm.
We also solved some of the tire issues. The right rear spring was not fully sitting in the guide area. Loosened the spring and slid it in. Seems much better.
Still rubbing on the right front but I suspect that this will be due to the wheel alignment being off as the alignment has to use the rear wheels for reference.
I will post some of the pictures after the 16th when the new top goes on.
What a time we have had with the local shops that did the work. Absolutely terrible every time.
However, I have found Kurbs Performance in St Albert. Great shop and they have helped out tremendously. Smiley
Kudos to Brad the owner. Good price and the work is done right.
Thank you to all of you for your help. It is appreciated.

Guys;
Sorry for not responding yet. I am away for a few more days and the car was not finished yet.
I will update once I return and let you know what we find.
Thank you all for the help.

235 70R15
they are about 1 1/2 inches out on the drivers side and look pretty good on the passenger side.
I can post a pic after I get it back.

Thanks for the advice guys. The car is at the tire shop getting the brake conversion gone through and bled and a wheel alignment.
As soon as I get it back tomorrow I will go through the wiring and hopefully get the starter issue fixed.
I will get some better pictures with the rubber and new chrome on her as well.

A second issue with the car is that the new 15 x 8 rear tires.
The drivers side sits outside the wheel well, and the passenger side is inside.
anyone else see this before? It looks like the only fix would be to have the body off frame and reset.
Any thoughts?

Before and after.

I will check the battery and cables.
I already changed the starter though with the same result.
Thanks for the suggestions and I will post what we find.

On another note, we had the car painted in the original Tahoe Turquoise, WOW, a very nice color.
I haven't seen many in this paint and it gets a lot of attention and questions. The wife was the one to be firm that it be repainted the original color and I am sure glad she did.
I have tried to post pictures but I cant get them to attach. Any ideasÉ

Hello.
I have the 67 Camaro rs/ss convertible just about done and ready to roll.
But the engine shop that i had turned out to be a bit of a nightmare, ok to good on the engine build for both the 350 and the 425 Buick, but nasty on the install and set up side.
the starter clicks 20-50 times and then the click gets a weak sound then starts. happens just about every time but sometimes it starts fine for a while.
I though ground maybe but it seems ok.
Any ideas out there?

Thanks
Ken and Axl

13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Engine Part Numbers on: February 02, 2012, 07:06:55 PM
Hello all.
Does anyone know what all of the part numbers are for the 1967 350 rs/ss engine?
I need pistin, rods, and any others you know of?
Any help would be appreciated.

14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro RS SS Convertible on: January 03, 2012, 09:12:46 PM
Hello all;
So I did the deal on the 350 Block and will have it in hand soon.
I have hired Cougar Paint and Collision here in Edmonton to do a complete paint job back to the original Tahoe Turquoise.
Cougar suggested having Dupont provide a modern mix on this color for us and I like the idea. It will be brighter and will provide a shine not found on the original.
I would like you all to weigh in on what color the engine compartment would have been on the car?
It is presently black but shouldnt the top portion match the exterior color? Cougar is doing a 69 in Hugger Orange and the top portion of the engine bay is orange.
thanks for letting me know.

The plan for the car is to rebuild the drivetrain this winter and to drive it in the summer.
It needs very little in the way of body work but next winter it will go in for body and paint. It will go back to Tahoe Torquoise then. And again, we will drive it in the summers.
We are building a 57 Buick Special convertible which will take years to complete. The Camaro was bought for my son and I to drive every summer. Eventually we will likely have the Camaro completely done in five or six years. But for now it is our driver.
I do agree that the car is a driver without a 350 and I want it as close to original as possible.
I doubt that I can find another 1967 350 that is as close to mu build date.
I think I need to suck up the price and pretend I only paid $350, and not $3,500. Lol
