16  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.

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.

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.
22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Starter clicking before start on: August 14, 2012, 09:54:32 AM
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

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?

25  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.

26  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

Hello everyone.
I really need some advice. I have found a 1967 350 3892657 cast block, crank, heads, and some other parts.
The block is dated September 8/66. My car was built on December 28/66. i have a correct year 327 in the car now.
My issue is that the 67 350 block is $3,500.
It has been honed and prepped for rebuilt.
Is it worth it to spend $3,500 on a very close to correct dated block for the 67 RS/SS?
Opinions please!!!!

Once I pick up the 350 and know that it is as correct as possible I will post the 327 here for sure. I am aware that anything but original is second best but I would like the car to as original as possible in all respects. I managed to speak to the second owner of the car and purchase the original heads and manifold and carburetor, so the only part of the car that is not 100% original is actually the block. I know that that is the biggest item but nevertheless it is as close as one could get. After researching I haven't found many first generation Camaros with the original block. I looked high and low and found two that were absolute frauds, base cars put out as true rs/ss models. So I was happy to find this one and look forward to making it as authentic as I can.
I would never represent that the car is anything but what it is but it is great that you guys are here and know so much. This forum was key to my being cautious after reading posts for many days. I asked the right questions of the owners and caught both up in lies about their cars. Believe it or not, one was a movie studio employee in Hollywood that had an ad on Autabuy for a beautiful 67 rs/ss convertible, fully restored and "all Original". Everything checked out until I was ready to send a deposit and wanted to see the title, cowl tag and vin numbers. AFter much delay he sent me his banking information, explained that the car was rented to the studio to be used in a movie for an unknown period of time but would be ready for pickup as soon as possible. The title that he sent me had a name of a guy in Maine on it (he hadn't bothered to  transfer it to a California title because it was too much trouble), and the cowl tag was obviously wrong. Turns out that when I pointed out that the tag was for a 68 base model he immediately faxed me a printed picture of the "actual" tag. Luckily I was suspicious enough to track down the guy from Maine on the internet.
Mike Fiori is his name. He is a classic car dealer in Maine and had completely built the Camaro in question and sold it to a guy in LA. Turns out that Mike built the Tribute car from the ground up as it had no drivetrain and needed a complete overhaul. he decided to do a tribute car as an rs/ss. The guy from LA sent him pictures of a beautiful 64 Ford Falcon convertible and a 63 Chev convertible that he wanted to trade for the Camaro and sent $5,000 to finish the deal. The transportation company verified that they were picking up the two trade cars and Mike put the Camaro on a truck and trailer to head out west.
A week later two nice looking cars arrived on his lot and he thought he did a great deal. When they pushed the cars onto the lot however, they discovered that niether car had an interior, drive train, or anything else. They were both studio cars used for films.
I share this story so others can be aware of what can happen. The fraudsters are becoming smarted and smarter. But what is worse is that I called his bank, Bank of America, and reported detailes including the name he used, account number, and address. I never heard back from the bank. I then called Autabuy and reported the guy and was told that this was the third complaint about this advertiser, yet the ad was still there three weeks later.
It is forums like this one with the expertise of you long term members that can help the purchasers from being taken for a ride. It seems that there is little else being done to protect people.
Glad I found you guys and with your help found a car that is largely original but exactly what I thought I was buying when I picked it up.

Ok. So I may have gotten extremely lucky. Like CAMARO LOTTERY lucky. I found an engine and have bought it. It is at the very least a early 1967 350 engine out of a true RS/SS. As unbelievable as this will sound I located a person selling a 67 RS/SS online. In the ad it said that the original engine from the car was part of the purchase price as her husband had pulled the original, replaced it with a newer engine, and planned to rebuild the original when he restored the car.  The husband passed away before the car and engine were restored and both sat since 1995. She finally decided to move and made the decision to sell the car.
When I emailed her she called me two days later she said she had just sold the car. I asked her for the buyers name to see if they would sell the engine out of the car. She said that the buyer did not want the date matching engine and left it behind. So I bought it.
i am picking it up this weekend and will confirm the casting and date numbers. But the lady was almost positive that her husbands car was built in the third week of December and he found a engine made two days before the car. My car was made on Dec 28 and delivered Dec 29. So, like I said, the Camaro Lottery if it proves to be dated within 10 or 12 days.
So that leaves me with a question. Does anyone have interest in a 1967 327 engine out of a Camaro? Is it worth anything more than any other 327 due to age or does it matter?
I am about to pull the engine this week and hopefully have the 350 ready to go to the shop.
Thanks for the help.
