I love the blue car, Chick.  All the add-ons are tastefully done.  Especially the spoiler.  Where did you get it?  Wouldnt mind having that on my 69 when it comes time to restore that one.

68 L78 03D NOR 

I think what everyone is seeing is a pass or two with the spray gun and that is why it is leaving uniform edges.  Have to remember these were on assembly lines and they were just hitting these things and moving on.

Apparently not..  lol

Guess Ill have to stick to restored or original..   Grin

Someone needs to come out with a term book on all the ole wording phrases.  "original engine" - but not matching number, "NOS" - New Old Stock or Near Original Sorta, restored, survivor, unrestored, original, NOM, born with drivetrain..  Sheeewww..  It gets tiring going through all the bull to get the facts..  lol  But I guess we are all glutens for punishment or we wouldnt be in the hobby.   Tongue

What I find humorous:

- Restored to near perfection

And then states

- kept in beautiful and orginial condition its whole life


Well which is it..  lol

Not sure who owns it.  Just cruising craigslist and found it and thought I would pass it along for data and/or interest.

1967 Pace Car
442  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Does anyone have a picture of an original 68 glove box without AC on: January 06, 2014, 07:58:05 AM
I can get you one still installed if that helps but it will be a couple days before I am back at the car.
443  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 rosewood Steering Wheel on: January 04, 2014, 10:21:25 PM
why would anyone do that?

I've seen stranger.. 
444  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 rosewood Steering Wheel on: January 04, 2014, 08:19:19 PM
Personal opinion.

I believe the wheel is legit.  I think what makes the biggest difference is that the color is much darker than originally would have been due to an additional coating or glaze added to the plastic after the rivets or accents were added.

Photo for comparison.

445  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Closet Find.. on: January 03, 2014, 10:23:59 PM
Since I am stuck inside due to sickness and the fact its just too freakin' cold outside I ran across a couple mags in the back of a closet.  Neat little article in Rodder & Super/Stock about the 68 L35; along with a pull out photo of the Grump.  Also if anyone needs to know the price of a new 1968 vehicle just let me know.   Grin








446  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Camaro Kick Panel Vacuum Actuator Cover screws? on: January 03, 2014, 02:13:23 PM
AIM page C60 A3 shows part # 47203984 for the cover screw; which I believe to be the same as the 69 AIM part # 4720885 which can be seen here on page 83.

http://www.amkproducts.com/Catalog_PDF/74-91.pdf

Might contact AMK to see if they have a cross reference for the part number.

FWIW my 69 has the screws like the one pictured in the PDF link above.
447  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Disassembly of brake booster on: January 03, 2014, 01:28:15 PM
Like Mike S mentioned.  Secure the base were it would bolt to the firewall into a bench vise and I use a long prybar between the 2 master cylinder studs and twist the halves apart.  All that is inside is a diaphragm, rubber bladder, rod (& E clip if memory severes) and spring.  Just make sure to mark the halves before pulling apart or you could get it clocked slightly off on reassembly.

You also might have to use a little persuasion with a hammer to separating the halves.

Charley, awesome gesture.  Makes a person rethink trying to make the all mighty dollar vs helping out a fellow enthusiast.
449  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 19, 2013, 11:41:37 AM

The BP code is 2.73 - you probably saw that. That ratio was commonly used in 1969 for the 230, 250 and 327 cubic inch engines when a Powerglide transmission was used. Probably with the 307 engine too, but I can't confirm that at the moment.  My guess is the original engine was a 307.
 

Same as my 69.

307 - glide - 10 bolt mono with 2.73 gears.
450  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Help please, decoding car on: December 16, 2013, 09:40:30 AM
Thanks guys,

I told you wrong on the shifter on the column,  its P R N D L,    So im assuming that is power glide?

Vin is
124379N643537

trim tag,
ST69 12437 N "O" or "G" P326079 BDY
TR 727   53 E PNT
O5A       X11

I could not get you in numbers off the trans or rear end.  Only jacks i have at home at 5 ton,  and nothing will go under the car





ST 69 12437NOR326079

Ext Paint is Glacier Blue With Parchment vinyl top (if it had stripes they would have been white as well)
Interior is Ivory/Black

First week of May build which falls in line with the vin.

X11 means style trim.


If the engine is out of the car get a pic of the firewall.
