Difficult to tell for sure - stamping appears correct, but the block surface looks a little weird. No real obvious evidence of broaching lines - surface almost looks shot peened, or blasted, but it could be O.K. I don't think the Van Nuys VIN stampings ever made it to the block side as did Norwood's above-the-filter stampings, so at least that matches.

Without a larger view of the deck surface, it would be difficult to pronounce a verdict one way or the other. At least no decking lines visible -

Not many in this business since ASL went out, Don was really good and reasonable. I still like to look through his old catalog - 

Contact Bill Hodel @ 330-833-0871. This maybe the guy that Don sold his business/inventory to, still advertises in Hemmings.

Greenhoe's Corvette lists parts, but I don't know if he rebuilds or offers that as a service or not. Worth a shot -

Are you kidding me!!  I didnt even know it was in town!!!  Im mad I missed it..

Did anyone post on here about it before hand?

I thought you, Satch and Billy probably went to Bowling Green - otherwise I would have called you when I didn't see you there. Show kinda slid in and slid out -

Good show, better weather on Saturday, but the worst in lack of advertising locally. 7 miles from my house, and I found out about it Thursday.

I can't blame this on the AACA, but I was amazed this size of show could sneak in here without at least some warning or propaganda.

Go on line and download Light Image Resizer - you can then re size to any that you need to transmit (600 X 480 works), and/or simply save the image as a .jpg file, which will downsize most image files (tif's, etc) to a much smaller format. I had the same problem with my iPhone pics, the resolution of the camera is tremendous, which causes a very large file content (usually greater than an MB).

Works for me -

Looks like the person who just bought it is a flipper:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/251558724442
Buy It Now $23,500.........

Indeed. The gentleman has sold a couple of '69 Camaros in the last couple of months/year, but this is his biggest price to date. I like the "15 minute conversation" with Jerry MacNeish concerning the car, plus his direction to have Jerry come document the car after purchase. If only it had some documentation other than parts, he might get somewhere. Knowing today's market and some misinformed buyers, he still might get somewhere.
 
Not with my money - even as a "flat hood spoiler delete" rare car.

His one negative feedback rating came from an auction in 2013, a dispute over a Chevrolet Silverado truck descriptive condition.

BTW- my entry is #1491. I'd venture a guess that the NCRS has paid for at least some of the labor that Roy did. Several times over, maybe -

Dishwashing detergent (I prefer Dawn), warm water and gentle scrubbing (use a cloth to prevent scratching), followed by either soaking in Armor All regular or clear Detailer's Advantage protectant. Soak them inside and out, or immerse if you can to get inside the hoses, which further protects and restores them. Wipe them down, blow out any excess inside the hoses, and let them dry out for a bit. You'll be amazed at how they soften up and look. I've used this technique on original vacuum hoses on Therm A/C air cleaners for a number of years, and it works perfectly.

We'll find out - just placed my second order. Site is still working, order acknowledged by Marilyn Heitzman, Chevy Muscle Docs Historical Document Services Administrator. I'll report back when (and if) it arrives.

Thanks again to Roy for all the work he put into this over the last many months. Keeping my fingers crossed that this one goes through (first one was in the group of "no shows").

70  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Which water pump needed for '68 Z28 on: June 08, 2014, 11:44:18 PM
Last two pics.

Also, note the instructions in the sheet above. This pump appears to be NOS, not a reman, plus no signs of ever being bolted on an engine. I could not find the part number in my '74 printing parts manual. Bag containing the 3/8" bypass plug, two gaskets and a 3/4" square head pipe plug were (are) in the box -

71  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Which water pump needed for '68 Z28 on: June 08, 2014, 11:27:21 PM
For your consideration - I picked this pump up ($15.00) in a local swap meet a few years back, thinking it was correct for my '68 due to the date, bypass, short design, and instruction sheet, but after reading the previuos threads I have a severe case of doubt. Looks appropriate, but maybe not -

Nice pump for the price, anyway.

Regards,
Steve

I'd say the one on eBay (Alliance Plastics, Erie PA) has to be a lot later production - compare it to my original I salvaged from my carpet when I changed it in (about)'73-'74 - company was previously Niagara Plastics, Erie, PA, and had the numbers "833" and "3" molded into the reverse side; hope the pictures are clear enough. As was mentioned earlier, it's not rubber, not a hard plastic - kind of in between.

I knew there was a reason why I saved it all these years - just to see how wild prices get on these things sometimes.

This one is in good enough shape to go back in the car. Maybe I could trade it for the Pace Car jacket on eBay - lol.

Regards,
Steve

Hey Steve I wonder since my car was special order car if they got shipped out on MSO out quicker than regular dealer stock order cars. Also checked out MSO invoice my #N019561

Mine were not special order cars, so I'll have to check this against my MSO's. First thing first, the Pace Car is going to get the treatment - probably followed by the '68, then the '9 Z. Be interesting to see if the '68 is close like yours, since they are close in build week.

74  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 02, 2014, 10:06:40 PM
I got my notice today & I have my MSOs also...Joe

How's the correlation between the MSO date and the production date ? One day off ?

Pics of the 6-8K I sold (stupidly) some time back. January '69 dated, it would have been perfect for my (non-gauge) X77, but monetary needs took precedence -
