1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / '68 L30 RS Conv. with 2 Broadcast Sheets and POP on: Today at 12:15:39 PM
Hey Guys...hope this is the right spot for this topic. I may be wrong, but I think I read somewhere that NOR didn't put Broadcast Sheets in their cars, so naturally I have to debunk this.  I found this very nice '68 RS convertible (VIN: 124678N342134) on CL Toledo and am sending on its pertinent info with a couple of photos.  It is being advertised for $28k by its original owner (not many of those left!) and has a claimed 79k original miles.  The red on red color scheme is beautiful, but the owner switched from the original white top to a less exciting black one.  As far as 1st Gens go this one's loaded: 327/275 engine (code on POP is "EE"...is this an L30?), PG, console, tach/gauges, deluxe interior, tilt, PB, tinted glass and an AM radio.  I noticed it has a clutch fan without A/C, so is this part of the L30 option?  It also has Rally wheels, but the '67 center caps lead me to believe they may not have come with the car.  I don't know if it has disc brakes, or not (I'm not skilled at reading BC sheets).  One BC sheet appears to have masking tape in the top center, so I'm guessing this was how they were held to the cars as they went down the assembly line.  The drivetrain carries Oct. build dates.  Anyway, the rarity of the car plus the Broadcast Sheets and POP mean that someone on here should buy it and bring it to shows to debunk the stories about non-existant Norwood Broadcast sheets  Huh.  I would buy it in a heartbeat if I could.  The link is posted below...happy hunting!

2  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Radio Delete Block-off Plug on: October 21, 2014, 09:55:20 PM
"L6Ragtop" noticed my '68 was a radio delete car and asked about the antenna block-off plug. Here's a photo of it to add to the info about originality on this site. Best regards to all.

Agreed! Q: does this car have an appearance package? I noticed it has the RS chrome under the side glass.

It's very odd that there are two 1st Gens with their original 6 cyl/manual drivetrains on Ebay at the same time, but I figured I would post one more since this section of CRG rarely gets anything new. This coupe is needing much more work than the '69 conv. that I posted earlier today, but it's complete and untouched. It appears the only options are AM radio, full wheelcovers, and spiffy front and rear bumper guards (also, dig that drink holder between the buckets). I don't think the steering wheel trim is correct, and the "RS" cap has infiltrated from another '68. I'm a sucker for these stripper six cyl. Camaros!

Thanks Ko-lek-tor...been off here for awhile with family stuff (busy with my 20 month-old son and just married his mother a week ago...it was about time!), and still collecting parts for my '68 RS rstoration. I hear you are down in the Cinci area and hope to meet you one of these days. Best regards!

Saw this '69 Camaro convertible on Ebay and thought how refreshing to see an original, unmolested example for sale. It had very few options (AM radio and power steering), and dog dish hubcaps. This would be a nice one to restore as-is and take to shows. It was originally equipped with a 3-on-the-tree and has been converted to a floor shift. Enjoy.
7  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Re: '68 Camaro 6 on Ebay bid over $20k on: June 11, 2014, 08:39:58 PM
The clamps are wrong (should be Wittek), plug wires are wrong, valve cover hold downs are wrong, coil should be a Delco "208", oil filter should be an AC PF29, oil fill cap should be Chevy orange...anything else? Don't get me wrong...this is a damned nice car (and it hasn't been aborted into yet another V8).
8  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / '68 Camaro 6 on Ebay bid over $20k on: June 11, 2014, 02:33:38 PM
Maybe there's hope for lowly 6 cylinder Camaros yet.  Here's one with a claimed 44k miles, 230 base engine and 3-on-the-tree that's been bid to over $20k.  There are a couple of nice Youtube links that show what a well-tuned 6 sounds like (a little-old-lady car immediately comes to mind  Cheesy ).  I keep thinking that one of these days these cars will actually be appreciated and sought after.  This is the level of restoration I hope to achieve with my RS.

Dave (aka Chill-r), thanks for inviting me out to see "Mom's Camaro". Just wanted to tell everyone on here that it is virtually a museum piece...stunning white paint (done by Dave), perfect quarter panel replacement (also by Dave), and a nearly perfect silver blue interior with original carpet, seats, door panels, headliner, dash pad. The car's original Firestone Deluxe Champion blackwall 7.35x14 spare and jack (with original dove gray paint and black factory paint spatters) are in the trunk. All of the wiring is original, and there are faded firewall grease pencil marks still visible on the firewall. I told Dave I would definitely pull that anemic 6 and 3 on the tree column and install a GM ZZ4 crate motor and a Turbo 350 (who the heck wants a crappy 6 ? Smiley. Hey...just kidding...lighten up! Anyway, this car is so unusual and beautiful, and it will drive the guys nuts at any Camaro show it enters.

Check how clean the bed is...obviously babied. And check out that beautiful rubber floor covering...no carpet! This would drive people crazy at a show. I wouldn't change a thing on this Camino!
11  Model Specific Discussions / 6-cylinder Camaros / Survivor 6 cyl El Camino with 3-on-the-tree on Ebay on: May 13, 2014, 02:25:01 PM
I'm posting this with the hopes that someone on here can pick this up (no pun intended) and save it for posterity. It is a marina blue base El Camino with black bench seat, 230 cubic-inch 6, 3-on-the-tree, radio delete, dog dish hubcaps, and no apparent options. It has 60k original miles (claimed by seller), and was sold new at Groth Chevrolet in Huntington Beach. It even has its original 7.35 x 14 Laredo blackwall spare tire! The seller says he has a 327 engine, Turbo 350, and Ford 9" rear for it...sounds like a great idea to take a completely original and beautiful low-mile survivor and turn it into yet another boring V8 car that won't get a second look at a car show.

Chill-r, there's another dirt cheap 230 or 250 (seller not sure) for $50 on Ebay. It's in Mich, so not too far from us in OH. Bidding ends on 5-14.

How many miles are on the 230? The sixes are rock-solid reliable, but it sounds like your 230 needs to be pulled and looked at (it would be a real shame to lose the original motor). It would be a piece of cake to pull it and have it re-ringed and re-bored (if necessary), and sixes are cheap enough that you could have a spare motor to swap in for not much dough. My plan with my 230 is to put the guts from the low-mile 250 I bought into the 230 block and have a "mountain motor" 6 (LOL). The 250 was a smoother running engine than the 230 and got the same gas mileage with more torque and hp (it had 15 more horses). I'd like to see your '67 and take some notes for my project as it sat for a long time and a few parts disappeared here and there. My fiancee lives in the Dublin area and I'm up there all the time. PM me your phone number if you think of it. Best regards

I'm probably 3 or 4 years from cruising in Ol' Krusty, but then I'll drive the wheels off of it. It goes to the body man this summer for mucho welding, then I can begin the long process of smoothing the body and getting it ready for single-stage urethane paint. You'll see it one of these days as I'm often in the Cleveland area with my fiancee to see her family (from Middleburg Hts.).

Yes, just like your mother-in-law's car. Looking forward to seeing it one of these days. Are you taking it to any shows this year, Chill-r?
