Gary,

 FWIW, both my 67's (4B & 5B) still retain their original 346 'WT' master cylinders and neither have date codes on them.
Also, Long Island Corvettes has the correct reproduction covers with the vents and wording (P/N 52-18N).
They also sell the correct steel bale wire for a lot less than others Camaro suppliers.

Merry Christmas,
Mike

 If I should restore the survivor I will make darn sure I get close up pictures of every detail from all around for reference.
I'll have to get a camera with a good macro zoom for that  Smiley

Thanks for the scoop....'Scoop'  Grin

Merry Christmas,

I have been told by the Camaro Nationals Judges that the wheel well plugs need to have undercoating on them to be correct. Scoop

Well then my 67 4B LOS survivor will have failed that inspection because there are zero coatings on any of the plugs. If I were to restore that car I would leave them clean despite what the judges think because they have been that way since I bought the car in 1980 and the car sat for 6 years in a garage before I came alone to buy it.

I don't think you can use it with headers because how would it fit? I have never seen it like that anyways.

So 67 was the only year for plastic in the wheel wells?

Are 67 shakers the same as 68?
652  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: cocktail shakers on: December 19, 2012, 07:37:37 PM
 Are you looking for 67 shakers?

 I just checked my 67 4B LOS and all plugs are clean of any coating.
In both wheel wells  there is a large thick clump of undercoating and the plugs look like they were installed with the coating still wet because they sit within the clump but are not covered by it.

I sent an inquiry to the seller at 6AM on Dec. 16th.

He responded on the 18th as follows:
"I thought when I looked at this car that it wasn't a correct Z28 so therefore I didn't list REAL Z or Matching Numbers? It's just a nicely built Camaro"


LOL.....after reading this, the term "plausible deniability"  popped into my head. Smiley

 Despite what the ad now states....Below in itself is still misleading and would have gone unchallenged if John didn't call him out on it....I suspect the dealer doesn't realize its context is questionable.

***BLACK BOOKS CPI(CARS OF PARTICULAR INTEREST) BOOK-COLLECTIBLE VEHICLE VALUE GUIDE(AUGUST 2012 BOOK)....#2 CONDITION....PRICE OF $82,875.00!!!!!!           <----- This would give a subliminal perception to look at the car as a real Z sitting at this value. The wording above clearly is meant to cause the reader an inaccurate perception that he/she is looking at a real Z. I've seen many of these advertising methods on eBay when it comes to NOS  hoses with stampings. Read twice and you will see it is actually NOS hose but was stamped with the correct markings vs. an original hose with factory stamped markings.

***I JUST ADDED A COUPLE PICTURES OF THE STAMP ON THE FRONT OF THE BLOCK. AS YOU CAN SEE IT ENDS IN "DZ"!!  ......   <------ this by itself implies it is a true DZ block. Clearly deception to word it this way.

Good call John!

I'm puzzled...... if it was a real SS why it had the RS gas cap and horn button.
Plus the rear blackout bottom edge is below the bumper brackets and the door strikers have paint on them.
Nice car otherwise.

 The pictures may have been blocked by my company firewall.
The ad states it was restored but the RS package was an addition.
At least the seller was up front about that.

Thanks,
Mike

hmmmm....is it my web session or did the pictures vanish from that URL?
I waited a while and no picture loads except for the one at the bottom

But, as Daniel stated, it shows a Tonawanda plant code instead of Flint. That's a huge red flag.
This car will be targeted towards the real sucker. I can only image how that person will feel the day he/she learns of their mistake and realized they were duped.
I still have that bridge in Brooklyn for sale if anyone is interested  Wink
