sorry it has taken so long getting back, especially to those who replyd to my questions earlier and have helped me get this far. After the holiday's getting back to work did not leave a lot of time to pursue the purchase, but I have been working at it slowly. I was finally able to come to a preliminary purchase price agreement with an inspection contingnecy that allowed me to walk away if the car was fake. This allows me to have the car inpsected by an expert (such as Jerry or other expert) without signing a contract. After obtaining that agreement, I was given a number for a guy here in FL named Ian Johnston to inspect for originality and condiditon. Is anyone here familiar with Ian's work or had an inpsection done by him before?

You might want to call and ask local platers if they use triple plating with copper. If not check out Advanced Plating out of TN they do excellent work.

Here is one: http://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/chevrolet/camaro/1248669.html

It has had a complete resotoration so I am not sure if it is original or it was changed after it was painted. It would be interesting IF it is authentic.

Very nice! I can only imagine what it will look like when it is done.

Great photos. Thanks for sharing. Is that your car?

If you get a universal kit you can cut them to the length you want.

I did not get a pictue of it. My camera was not woking anyway as shown in some of my previous posts. I did not look at the welds, I only made note to check to see if it was present and not how it was attached.
205  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Spark plug wire sets? on: December 29, 2011, 10:38:09 AM
I am not sure about item #1 but my thought is that some kits allow you to custom make your own so the lengths of wire are how you want for looks or for different applications if the car is a complete custom.
I think you should be able to assemble them yourself I have done some of my own before
You would need a crimping tool and or be able to strip the end of the wires if they are not already
8mm or 8.5mm is better if you have higher voltage ignition systems if your ignition is stock then any of those choice would be OK. If you plan on upgrading the ignition/coil in the future I would go with the 8mm if you are not concerned with originality
Your last question depends on weather or not you are concerned with originality or not? If not then they are OK.

The yellow trans tag shows CE (which is correct for an L34 engine) 69 316 then below on the same tag CE-69-2442




As far as I can tell the TH400 looks promising as well. Just need a date?                                             
                                                                                               

Marty I found a Julian date calculator over in the CRG research area here:

http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#Calendar

Anyway with the information off the yellow trans tag on the passengers side of the TH 400 the C is correct for model year 1969 even though it started in late 68.
E is the TH 400 correct for RPO L34 Engine

316 Julian calendar date. In the above calculator I put in November 1968 (Because I know both the cowl tag 2nd week of Nov 68  and rear axle code 11 15 which is November 15Th 68) and the calculator gave me November 11, 1968  as the calendar date for the transmission.

Thanks Ed. He did email me this morning. He informed me of his current situation and will be in touch after the first of the year at his convenience. I asked the seller to inform me if the car is no longer for sale during that time. If you have had the opportunity to read what I have posted here to date, I welcome your thoughts and opinion.

Very cool video, John thanks for posting the run times. Best run was a 9.69 at 140, very respectable. 

I agree and from a factory produced vehicle. I bet if it comes available to the public it will not be cheap.

Have you heard back from Jerry?

Did you call the phone number at the bottom of the link Paul posted (Reply 1)? He'll be back on a regular schedule after the 1st...

I did not call yet. I sent an introductory email since he does not know me. I also wanted you guys to take a look a that engine pad photo before I called the number.
