If you are in the description he states he has tags & title for both a Firebird & Camaro.  That is why I say a potential rebody.

Darrell,

That broken spring would bother me, esp if you have a high lift cam installed...  Are you close to 'spring bind'??
PS.  The car looks great.  I like the gray spokes...  Smiley

No it's not close to coil bind.  This engine still has the original L78 cam & springs. 



I know the topic of the tail paint has been discussed here before and I believe the consensus was the black paint used for the tail was the same for the lower rockers (where used) and the firewall. It makes sense because I doubt GM would have a special gloss just for the tail blackout. If you were to take a guess (unless you know for sure) at what gloss level would you say yours is?

Mike

I can't say with 100% but I would guess 70-80% gloss.  You have to realize that in my case the tail panel hasn't any type of protectant applied in over 20 years.  Just a wash every now & then.

Since I can't added pics correctly the first time..  






& yes Mike that is what I am stating & my belief.
Car at less than a month old.

and thought I would wash wax finish up any tuneup issues that were left from the previous weekend.  So Im almost finished and I keep hearing a little chatter under the valve cover.  I pull the cover to adjust the valves and get to #7 intake and see what looks like a weak spring.  I pull off the keepers to discover this.





Luckily it didnt drop a valve because I would have been sick..  But got it replaced with a spare I had and everything is back to normal.  Not sure I like the wheels on the car..  Cragars are definitely the leading candidate at this point.







Also a pic of the tailpan after waxing.  I have to retract my first belief of them being semi or satin black.

Acts lean at idle, cruising or WOT?
54  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Found Some More Pics of the Green L78 on: August 26, 2014, 09:22:53 AM
I might just do that.  I want to go to the Soild Lifter Show next year if I can plan around it.  Would like to take the Rallye Green L78 to though.  Just need to upgrade the towing rig.  Roll Eyes  My mighty ZR2 S10 (with 200K plus) had all it could handle with the trailer and pulling the Z as a roller a few months back.  Shocked

Heck its not hijacking when there are cool vintage pics involved!!!
56  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Timing out of wack on: August 25, 2014, 04:27:40 PM
Maybe a dumb question but are you plugging off your vacuum advance when setting timing?
57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Found Some More Pics of the Green L78 on: August 25, 2014, 01:17:36 PM
I modified my last post so reread it again if you missed it.

That sounds right.

WOW small world..  When you said Steppenwolf I called my mother and confirmed with her.  My father bought the 427 out of the Steppenwolf car.  She said it was Mr Evans son.  I said was it Dale Evans and she said; you know I believe that is right..  He put that 427 in the green 68 and it wouldnt run as strong as the L78 so he pulled it out and sold it and put the L78 back in.

This is too cool..
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Found Some More Pics of the Green L78 on: August 25, 2014, 12:55:11 PM
How cool is this..  Its a shame its no longer around.

There was no dealer emblem on the car.  Just the license plate frames.  He also bought a new 66 SS Chevelle from a dealer in Painesville.  My parents lived in Mentor until 1971-72.  Eventually calling Lebanon, TN home in 1974-75.  If you run across a Glasscock frame I would definitely be interested in it.
