When I looked at the ad earlier today at work (before it got removed), the X33 tag looked genuine but the car had some confusing details. The asking price suggested a NOM engine, and in the pictures it at least had an earlier style intake (from the front oil fill tube). Also was a 711 interior on the trim tag, but had standard seats and deluxe door panels in the pictures. Could still be a good buy at that price, but needed much more detail.

Oaklyss, in that last picture, is the horizontal area on the underside of the rocker bare metal? Can't tell, could be the flash effect, but it looks like there isn't even primer on there.

Did you download the 67 Chassis Service and Overhaul Manuals from the link in reply #4 above?

You move fast Kevin - from "what's it worth?" to "sold" in a smidge over 24 hours!

Great photos, thanks Mike

Meant to add in above post, can a "branded" title (don't know what that is, being overseas) become a full clear title if the vehicle is rebuilt and passes inspection, or does it always remain on that type of title regardless?

Kevin,
Sad story for sure, I can only imagine how you must feel to see that beautiful car go up in flames.....
Now there are a couple of things I'd suggest:
1) if you get the software recommended earlier, please post some pictures of the car, damaged and undamaged areas so we can comment on what looks rescuable (is that a proper word?) and what probably isn't.
2) as for current value, the truth is likely to be that the parts are worth more individually than as a complete car. But a good ballpark place to start may be the valuation that your insurance company put on the wreck i.e. what you bought it back for. If they paid out the appraised or agreed value as a total loss, then they know what it was worth and would have tried to recoup as much of that as they could.
3) people are probably only asking after the car because nobody wants to see a previously-beautiful classic in a sorry state.
4) you obviously enjoyed the car, and while it may be unpleasant to look at it as it sits today, as a number-matching car, it deserves to be returned to it's previous condition (as you said). Have you thought about getting it professionally restored, more costly that you doing it, but you won't have to put yourself through tearing it all down and doing it again.
Hope this helps, and look forward to pictures!

Mike, pics would be much appreciated when you have an opportunity.
Thanks, Tim

Interesting, the one pictured did look quite short. Assuming you use the jack base, and then the special curved wingnut, to secure the spare, wonder if that'd run out of length? I didn't mention bolt length for space saver spare because I thought that was only an option with 14" wheels, is that correct? I know the coupes and convertibles used different bolts due to the position of the spare in the trunk, maybe the 'vert has the shorter one?

I'd be in for 2 gray cables (assuming of course that you'd be happy to post the to Australia at my cost?).
Steve, I'd still be interested in 2 gray cables and 2 sets of mounting bolts, if you're happy to ship to Australia. Just let me know total and your PayPal email details by PM. Interested in a couple of the special washers too, if you end up getting them made.
(And before anyone points out only 1 cable is required per car, I have an original cable but want a couple of spares while they're available).
41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Who would be interested in buying a replacement passenger seat cable? on: June 14, 2014, 04:52:44 AM
I would. Sent you a PM from T.C. an CRG. I need the bolt and cable in black. PM sent.
Gary, the original 69 cable I have is gray, I thought the black was 67 and maybe 68 too?

Great, thanks for the pictures. Much appreciated.
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Length of J-bolt for spare in trunk on: June 13, 2014, 09:23:23 PM
Could someone with a 69 Z please confirm the finish, correct overall length, and thread length, of the original factory J-bolt hook that is used to hold down the 15" spare in the trunk?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Well I hope it's not a member here, but they have removed the RS grille badge in the new ebay ad pics.

Looks like the person who just bought it is a flipper:
