Originality / Re: 68 Factory Gauge Question
« on: November 09, 2018, 11:45:20 PM »
For an SS396 325hp was there a tach/clock combination on the dash instrument cluster?  I have read about a tic-toc-tac on some cars, but I'm not sure if mine would have come with one as it does not have a console.


If it didnít originally come with a console then there is zero chance it came with a factory tach.  But for those that did come with tach & gauges the tach would have been a 5.5k/7k redline.

FWIW just about every question you have asked can be answered by using the search function or by reading anything and everything on the main page link.

Glad to see another 68 given some love.  Post pics unless you have already.

Maintenance / Re: 302 Valve adjustment
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:47:33 AM »
X33RS gave great advice but I would add if you are going to adjust the valves with a cold engine then you need to add 0.002" (0.032") to your lash if it is stock cast iron head and block.

If he would consider just selling the car I think it would go a lot faster.  But for now he only wants a trade..  No matter what its history during its life as a racer its a X33 D80 car.  No matter how you slice it; it's a Z car.   I wouldn't care if it had a Cummins diesel between the fenders I'd still consider it a Z.  For the record the car is very, very clean and appears to present great.  If I were in the market for a 69 Z that I wanted to race this would be the car I would consider.

Gary, your line of thinking would lend to someone having all the "correct" components for a Z on a 6cyl rolling chassis and that you would consider it a Z.


BTW this car has a legit trim tag, vin & doc proving it was ordered by Berger Chevrolet.

Nevermind found it.  Also FWIW I couldn't see the pic in Gary's first post until I created a login over on Tri-5

So let me make sure I understand a couple of you that are shitting on the car because it was modified from stock form and now is not considered a Z any longer?  Is there photos showing the trim tag or legitimacy of the sellers claims of it being a Z?
