If you choose "other" then could you tell me what the other would be..?.. 

So no one else is running a crossflow muffler on their car?  Small blocks are welcomed as well!!

Is there anyone here that lived or knows anyone that lived in Texas even in or around Austin in the late 60's early 70's?  Thanks, Darrell

Phillip,

Do you have the weights of the 230/250 ci 6 cyl engine?   I've been under the impression the weight was very similar to a small block V8 of the same era..?


These are rough #'s I have and Im not real sure where I got them..


Chevy L6 194-250 cid 440 lbs
Chevy L6 216/235 cid 630 lbs
Chevy small block V8 575 lbs with iron heads and intake
Chevy small block V8 535 lbs with iron heads/alum intake

Chevy V8 348/409 620 lbs
Chevy big block V8 685 lbs

That is a good question.  Here is a few pics of an original L78 car.  My guess is the one on the water pump was painted and the one on the intake zinc?  Extremely hard to tell on this one due to all the rust and I do not plain on removing them anytime soon.  Hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.

816  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Which crossflow/transverse muffler on BBC on: September 23, 2013, 08:54:03 PM
I am just wanting a good sounding exhaust system that is stock in appearance but with headers, x-pipe going into a crossflow or transverse muffler and exiting in stock location(67-8) on a BBC. No true duals.. It can be either 2.5"in / 2.5"out or 3"in / 2.5"out. So tell me what you have or what you have heard? I am leaning towards one muffler but I havent heard it in person yet. If you happen to have sound bites load them up as well. Thanks. Smiley

For some reason I'm thinking it was natural..  But I might be wrong.

My original is zinc-plated; I doubt if any of them were "natural", as they'd rust quickly, and everything around them was either painted, plated, or aluminum. See my "Bracket Location" photo in the first post in this thread.

I thought that after I posted but figured someone that had an OE piece would chime in.  Thanks John!!   Grin
818  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: WOW! Chance to buy a COPO from Original owner on: September 23, 2013, 11:54:16 AM
I know COPO 's came with automatics,

I gotcha..  I didnt know by your post.


Why wouldn't this be considered a recreation??? (if he has nothing to prove it otherwise)


I do not see proof one way or the other.  To me its one of those cars you put a ? mark next to until info is presented one way or the other.  Whats been presented so far isnt enough.
 
819  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Camaro and Firebird bucket seats? on: September 23, 2013, 08:02:33 AM
Not that I've ever encountered.
820  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: WOW! Chance to buy a COPO from Original owner on: September 23, 2013, 07:04:56 AM
ok, so you saying it was an original copo, but now has a ce block in it plus the fact that it is an automatic and you still think it sold for close to 100K?

FYI COPOs were also ordered with automatics.    That has no baring on whether or not this is a legit car but do not want you to think they only came with 4 speeds.
821  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 68 grille center plastic repair on: September 22, 2013, 03:43:29 PM
The 2 part epoxies have worked for me in the past.  I've also used old pieces of the same plastic & a soldering iron. But the latter was not good as far as apperance..

Only pic I have handy.  But looks like the small one is correct.


824  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1100837 9 F 17 on: September 19, 2013, 08:06:56 PM
I'm certainly no expert..  But with the vin being late may early June I wouldn't feel comfortable with a 9 F 17...
825  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1100837 9 F 17 on: September 19, 2013, 06:53:00 PM
I would say yes it's too late..  You could go a couple of months earlier than your build date & still be ok.
