. If you look at Hagerty evaluation tool they say the average price of a 69 Z is around $80k which seems way to high to me for the average.

* If you looked at the fine print BULLITT65, it says that price is for HO only!?

An older guy near me, that I help him maintain his cars, goes to a lot of auctions buying auto/oil/gas related trinkets. He has a fantastic collection. He had these in a drawer of parts. He said "take em". I did. Cool Grin

I'll ad, I would network and find a guy that deals locally with swap meets. There is a guy near me that has tons of  Camaro only parts. He goes to several swaps and sets up. If I need a part, I can always use him as a "go to" for factory stuff. He usually is cheaper than ePay and lets you know if it is repro or not.  Cool  Once you establish a relationship, it is easier to just call for your needs. Make sure the guy is not dishonest (ask around). He may even trade or buy your extras out right. The guy I know has found several desirable parts I can recall. He even bought an NOS endura bumper jack rest for $5 once. rosewood wheels for $25. Of course he knows their value, but original beats repro any day IMO.

Sometimes we change our minds, given time to re-think the situation and getting more information. The new owner may have a change of heart and may want it now, so I would give him one last chance. I know several Camaro owners that just do not care about "correctness" or putting their car back to original. Hard for us, here on CRG, to understand, I know.

I really should not contribute as I am not sure this fan is original, but I believe it is as some stuff was in trunk(engine was gone when I got the car) 12B Nor X22. Here it is :
Hayes-Albion fan, Schwitzer clutch 10-16-68, also an extra Eaton unit FWIW.

Congrats Steve. Nice to be recognized for your good service.
14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anybody need these parts? on: October 05, 2014, 05:32:40 PM
Personally, I think it is a scam. I would not even bother to inquire since there is no price. But if you do go over to this guy's place, I will take that Big Block shifter bracket...I am sure it came off of his Z (sarcasm).

So I don't have a torch per se, only a little propane gas bottle torch. So how hot do I get the parts?
If you can put a wrench on the bolt (use glove) apply pressure with one hand while heating with other until it turns. This is one way. The other is get 'er cherry red and let it cool. I hope you are taking the shifter off the car to heat it. With out experience in heating parts, you risk catching the car on fire if part left on the car. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher near by and nothing flamable in the area. Garage near me scrapped cars for cash and some kid working there was draining gas tank by drilling bottom of tank with an electric drill. Burnt the place down.
