All 67-69 Camaro bbc valve covers have/had the drippers.  The slanted corner like the ones you see that are repops are not for Camaro.  The original drivers cover on Camaro, Nova and Chevelle had a very slight slant front back to front and had a notch or kickout for the rocker stud. 

Here is some good info.

Are you sure the upper center screw is making good ground with the metal wire that goes to the gauges?

Not sure how many are known.  I knew of one that was in Scottsville, KY but it was sold and no idea where it went.  Originally a small block car but was built as a BB.  Cant remember if it was made to be an L35 or 78 though.  There is also another one that was in middle TN but not sure if its still around..  

I know this forum is dedicated to the pacers of all years but not sure if they are keeping data.

I personally love the blue topped pacers..

Only pics I have of an original bag and owners manual.







Thought it was a pretty cool piece.  Apparently he went in 3 months after buying the car and bought some rear shocks.  Still have the originals that came on the car.

Z's back...however replacing lower control arms and half shafts in our Freestyle, replaced rear spring shackle mount in my kid's truck (back from college) Fired up the Anglia today, ran it through it's paces and heard an unfamiliar clunk in the rear end ....only made a few passes summer before last  !! Gremlins. Too much free play in the rear end I think, getting another opinion ,at least 3rd member comes right out (9 inch) Too much to ask to run  1 Gasser meet this summer.

Is it just me or is there always  some BS getting in the way of just relaxing with the Camaro ( wrenching on it)  I'm venting.

My son told me most people just ignore car problems, laughed and said " you tear right into it and correct  " Like to think I share company here" BTY how's that motor  Darrell ?  Sad

I know exactly what you mean.  Ive been working ot at work trying to meet deadlines for projects and honey-do's on the weekend along with yardwork.  Its put the engine on the back burner.   I do have it completely toredown, cylinders look good, very minor wear on bearings and light wear on skirts of pistons.  Ive ordered a few coatings from Cerakote and Im gonna do the pistons and bearings.  Ive always sent my stuff out to have this done but I am doing it myself this go around.  When the time comes Ill post up pictures of the progress.

As for the Anglia, I would guess either a broken tooth or  pinion nut backing off.  Just a guess but either way, you know its gotta come out.  Good luck with it.

One way is to see how much the repop ones are going for and either double or triple the price.  Seeing as they are just a few bucks a piece I could see 5-10 bucks each being a decent price.  Although somethings are harder to resale.  If you are looking for something that is correct for your car then I think that would be a great price to offer.  But take my opinion with a grain of salt because I am a tightwad..

If it's not a L78 Pacer I can't see it bringing much less being worth 100k.
IMHO the white and blue is a great combo however, there are many people who really do not care for it which reduces the available buyer pool.
L78 is a different case altogether and makes a huge difference because of how few L78's were made (>11k firstgens) & L78 verts were but a fraction of that.
If you want a L78 conv and a pacer comes up, you probably buy it in spite it's being a pacer, where as if looking for a L35 conv you probably pass right by the pacer if you aren't specifically looking for it.


I agree James.

Block looks good to me.  It would be better if the car owner new that his original block was still out there.  I.E. the reason for Kurt posting this. 
207  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Choosing the correct window molding clips ? on: May 22, 2014, 03:56:20 PM
What little research I did when I was putting the front and back glass in my 67 was the one you have labeled rear with the serrated edge was the front and the ones like in the catalogs were the rear.

I ordered them off ebay.

The front windshield:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/310731077667?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2648

Back glass:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/370006022566?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

I can post pictures of what the extra clips look like once I get home.  Fit was nice and tight and they are even with the body (referring to the trim).









I didnt take any pics of the back glass but the fit and finish was the same.

Just an FYI this is not a Pypes kit.  Just the muffler was Pypes.  I wanted to be able to tuck the exhaust up against the car and I didnt know how the Pypes system would fit so I went this route.  Cost was about the same as getting the kit but I got a deal on the labor since I was doing 40% of it.

I went with this config. 3.5" collector reducing down to 2.5" into a x-pipe and going through Pypes Pro Race Crossflow muffler and the tailpipes are in the stock location.  I think it sounded great but the fiancee thinks its extremely too loud..  lol but still wants to drive it once its finished.  Go figure.  Once I finish with the engine I plan on posting a vid of how it sounds.  Also note that the aftermarket aluminum diff cover worked with the muffler.

Pic of the assembly and fabbing of the exhaust.
