Also to add. On my chevelle with the top of the dash the darker suede that matches the pad and the rest of the interior a medium red semi gloss, I sent off to Legendary for a seat sample so I can double check to make sure it will match with the medium red semi gloss Ditzler paint number that Jimmy gave me. I'm not positve 67 Camaro would have followed the same two interior color scheme as the Chevelle's but I'm thinking they did. Which would explain the two different colors you are seeing on your dash. Hope this helps.

I'm going through the same thing with my red interior chevelle. The upper is the zero gloss suede paint as Jeff mentioned. On my 66 chevelle there were two different interior colors used. The upper is a darker red suede zero degree that matches the dash pad. The lower dash, console, tops of the doors, seats etc were a medium red semi gloss. You can contact Jimmy Chips atTCP global and he will be able to look up the correct Ditzler or Dupont paint codes you would need if you are trying to put your interior back to the correct factory color. He worked at Ditzler back in the 70's when they supplied the paints to GM. He is a very knowledgeable, friendly guy that loves the old car hobby. I have his number and direct extension if you want it.

I second that. I would love to see as many pictures of both unrestored cars as you both would be so kind to post. I love these unrestored cars!

He says its a 386 block. I thought they were the early July68 through Jan69. So IF its the original decked block the VIN would have more than likely been on the pad. It also would have been nice to see a picture of the trim tag and had most of the VIN because he says it is an X33 which means it should have an approx. Dec 1st or later build date.

They were there earlier. Now gone over on TC as well.

That is a great looking car..  To be honest I would clean the snot out of that thing, replace whatever absolutely needed to be replaced and keep it original..  Survivor cars are becoming harder and harder to come buy and to me are worth more to keep them as they were and preserve them..  Great project regardless!!
I agree, that is what I would do too.

Jerry M rebuilt and restored the 302 for my Z.   He used Seymour paint.


Wow Jerry does a nice job! Thanks again guys for all the responses and input!
175  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: November 01, 2013, 08:10:21 PM
If yours is the big block make sure you have the cast exhaust manifolds on when you do it.

Yes, and wasn't the water pump on before paint on the big block so therefore a bare look on some of the timing cover and back of the water pump?

Its a beauty!!
177  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: October 26, 2013, 11:16:48 PM
Thanks for all the input and suggestions. I will check on these and also look back at old forums as mentioned.
178  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Correct engine paint suggestions please! on: October 26, 2013, 06:44:45 AM
I have my big block on the stand and it will be buttoned up from the intake to the pan by tomorrow. I will put on a good self etching primer for now but will want to put on the correct orange soon. I am trying to do a concourse frame off restoration on my car and want to do everything as close to factory correct as possible. If I'm not mistaken the factory used a big pot spray gun to paint the engines back in the day. What are you concourse, original guys using to paint the Chevy orange? I know most people use a rattle can but I was thinking about using a paint gun. Any suggestions or past experiences or correct paint color numbers would be helpful.
Thanks!

Sure glad you got her and it went to someone that will preserve and appreciate the originality. The first time it ran on EBay I contacted him and was very interested in it but just not in a position to buy it without selling one of my chevelles which I considered doing. Love the color and history of the car. Congratulations!
180  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69' Z28 with Factory Cross Ram on: October 05, 2013, 01:11:33 PM
And the whole "Cross ram still in the trunk from the factory" we know was a myth that never happened. Jerry's book pages 30, 31 and 32
But nice sales pitch. Another issue going on with the car along with the ones already mentioned. The build date of 02B is to early for D80 on the cowl tag. This thing is looking very fishy. Fake trim tag I would say.

I understand this car is a sham for the most part, BUT there was a recent post by john mello showing vintage documents where 67 Z-28 did have the cross ram in the trunk, how long was done for and after seeing those documents how could you disprove that a cross ram didn't come in the trunk? thanks

I hear what you are saying and I have always tried to have the attitude that when it came to GM you never say never as it has been proven many times that with the right dealer or connections strings were pulled. But when it comes to this particular issue I am just going by what Jerry wrote in his book on pages 30,31 and 32. He spends quiet a bit of time on it. He says it never happened and has two letters from GM executives confirming that the cross ram set up was only available as an over the counter item and never came in the trunk from the factory. Maybe someone out there has some other evidence.
