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..

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.

Great pics! What dealer sold it?


Steve

He ordered it from Glasscock Chevrolet in Willoughby, Ohio

The blue 69 z28 was DJ's car is somewhere in Kentucky last I heard. 


For some reason I was thinking it went out west..  Glad it stayed at least somewhat close.  You can also see Ron and Diane's X44 Z in the back ground.  lol

Pace car was sold back in 2001.  I can not remember the guys name.

No air shocks.  He didnt get them until July of 68.



Engines coming.  Got the coated cam bearings installed and the crank is back in the block.  Still need to finish the other head and get a set of rings and back together it goes.

Thanks guys.  The only reason I am the person I am and the vehicles I now own; directly or indirectly is due to my father.  

Steve yes he sure did.  The POP shows he signed the paperwork on the 4th of April and in less than a month he had already started making changes and personalizing it.  I was actually giving it a tuneup and oil change today and while I was under the car I could still see the old paint in some of the hard to see places.  Set the timing at 33 degrees total (started to ping a little when I went higher but hadnt ran a full tank through the car yet), dwell at 30 & NGK plugs with 110 octane..  Definitely a world of difference..  Also cleared up the hesitation I was having off idle as well.

I also ran across some other pics of some local cars.  See if you remember some of these..





On a side note:
If anyone is looking into oils to run that has the correct amount of zinc (over 1500ppm) & phosphorus (over 1300ppm) go with Brad Penn Grade 1 Oil..  From my research they have a great reputation and it is 100% USA MADE.

Heres a 68 with the wick missing.  I would guess most either dry rotted or were broken off.

102  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Condensation wicks in tail light housing on: August 24, 2014, 05:24:20 PM
They are on 67 & 8 tail light housings.  Because the metal back housings that cause  moisture.  Pretty sure 69's do not have them.

Well as far as I know there has been the original steel wheels, keystones, some unknown mag wheel, Cragars, & rallyes..  I still have the Cragars, rallyes & a set of AR wheels (never were on his car but I plan on running them some) that I am currently running on my 67.  The mirror, spoilers & chrome on the doors & fender wells were added by him.  He bought the car with one thing in mind; which was drag racing.
