Yeah I have access to one and will be using it for the tuning and break-in of the engine.  Those test stands are great to have.
422  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: May 29, 2014, 04:28:13 PM
Now my question is.. I want to call the dealer and try and ask for some possible info from way back when it was sold, who would you ask to speak to if you were doing this? I tried this on my 69 Z back in about 2000 at the dealer in OK that sold it but never really got anywhere as I dont think they really wanted to bother with me. Any advice who I should try to speak to and questions I should ask?

Thank you in advance,

I am going through the same thing.  Ive called and talked with the Manager of Sales & Manager of Finance and they are supposed to be looking into it.  Its been a couple weeks now and I havent heard anything.  I will probably wait another week or so and make another friendly reminder call and see if anything has come up.   Wink

Nope. Everything that was die-imprinted on the P-O-P was done at the plant, when the plate was created in the Addressograph machine on the Final Line.

Do you happen to know if this was the same for all vehicles and plants?  Because this brings up an interesting topic non Camaro related.

Finally found the time to get some pics posted up.  Got the shortblock disassembled and pressure washed & cleaned.  Pistons not yet cleaned.

No pistons were harmed from the P to V issues.

Crankshaft in great shape.  Still needs to be cleaned though.

The madness.

Drivers side head on the bench and torn down.  Kinda surprised this thing didnt smoke a little.  Every umbrella seal was torn in 2.  Looks like its gonna need a least a few guides as well.

Looks like Felpro gaskets will not work on this setup.  Cant believe it was put together like this.  Mr. Gasket's 5827 intake gaskets here I come!!!  Exhaust ports are just as bad (not pictured).

A few of the goodies have started to show up.

Also planning on adding this to the coating arsenal.

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.
