 Would it be the same as an L35? If so then mine are both pink. The sumps should be the same size.
Engine dates are T0214 and T0308
I assume the sticks were installed when the motor was assembled?

Here's a funny one...  http://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/4808445196.html

Current seller keeps getting flagged and removed because of this "warning" listing.

Caution: Some language may be inappropriate for children.  Lips Sealed

I can't blame someone for trying to make $$$ by flipping a car, especially if he/she bought it at a low market price. If anything, I would have been really pissed at the original seller for breaking a deal and switching buyers.

I have seen fairly late model dodge trucks here with the bed side rotted out and you can see a rope looking piece in there that didn't help the problem
  You beat me to that observation, Bill. Same here too on Long Island...many new trucks with wheel opening rot. Looking closely at them I can see no matter how much care the owner does to the truck, that is still rotting from behind the paint and from an inaccessible cavity.
  It still amazes me how many old cars I see at shows that are still around even though they weren't designed to last what, maybe 10 years? Remember when reaching 100K miles on a car back then drew reverence and awe? Yep, they now needed and got some cosmetic help (sort of like people when we get older) but the fact remains if it's made in the USA, it's here to stay ("your mileage will vary" )  Wink

Wide tires were used back then.  They just had to jack the rear of the car up to clear the quarter well.  Another check mark for 7 & 8s for not needing as much jacking..












Yep....raise that baby. Back in the day it was Gabriel HiJackers....with the air hose fitting drilled under the lower rear valance.

Remember that:

2. Making the inner rear wheelhouse tubs wider would have compromised the rear seat hip room dimension ..............

 I agree. It was cramped enough spending time in the back seat at the drive-ins back in my youthful wild days  ( Mike checks over his shoulder for the wife's whereabouts )  Cheesy I can only image how cramped it would be if it was narrower!

Have you tried Crane Corvette Supply? They make the best accurate aftermarket BB valve covers. I think they also do flash chrome, though I' am not sure if it includes BB.

Decklid - they used that most of the way thru 67 production. There was an earlier version, but I'm not sure LOS ever got that version.
I'm also curious on the decklid date. Should have asked that. No hurry. Smiley

Thanks!

  The lid with the center elongated hole was for the '66 period, correct?

68  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: paint code on leaf spring by front eye bolt, on 1969 camaro on: December 04, 2014, 10:11:41 AM
 There was a discussion about paint coded leaf springs (it was used) for 1967 and possibly early 68. I am under the assumption that 67 was the only year used before starting to use decals.
The discussion can be found here: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9739.0

 The description is humorous! I'm curious if someone actually buys it.

 I suspect those VIN's are well guarded due to fraud.
This link talked about it for Motion:

 Here is a topic about that from 2009:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=mdv2o3niniq3lb1etg6vsgdr16&topic=5632.0

  Both, my 04B LOS and 05B NOR, have the metal tags.

This answers the The GM jam decal question I have. What is the build date on this 67?

Steve,

  Just curious...what question did you have about the sticker?

 Gosh, I completely forgot the OP asked about the rear panels too.
Great shots MooneyDriver!  Looks like your doors show signs of adhesive too.

 I like the 'Stang a lot. But, I own Camaros simply because I like them more :-)

 Hi Wendell,

    Attached are two pictures of the paint edge from my 67 w/standard interior. You can clearly see the rear paint edge line. The front edge is hidden under the rubber, which is very brittle, so I didn't want to pop out the black plugs. Also, there looks to be traces of adhesive in that area so I didn't want to risk tearing the original rubber.
  The picture MooneyDrive posted displays an excellent view of the bottom paint line under the door panel.

MooneyDriver, can you get a front shot of the paint edge under the rubber on that door?

Mike
