Yup, as stated above, #1 and #2 owner also kept everything they took off the Z. When #1 got in touch with me about 6 years ago, he had JUST gotten rid of the pollution control set up, which had been up in his parent's garage from around May/June 68.He actually apologized ,but his intentions were to buy the car back, so he was being nice.

You can safely deduce : Why would someone keep old tires and a battery while getting rid of a hood Huh

I hate to admit, but shy of the shocks and battery ,the few items missing for this one has been my own fault over the years due to moves, storage when building the house ,parts "intermingling" etc..and how many really gave much thought to keeping old hoses, belts ,plugs etc...at the time I got it, was not even considered a classic. LOL.

IMO this HO 69 should define survivor--beautiful, well cared for, un-molested. No state of disrepair what so ever. I wouldn't even take a hose to the body--hand wash ,Simple green to the engine...period.

Even though my car (and some may gasp ) retained over 90 % of it's original paint ,presented well--- you can argue it should not have been touched ,I thought it needed it, my bar's set high and I own it.

Stunning is that 69,many an article should be written about it.

Wow ,you know who built it ( 8 years ago) If the above is the case, no way that motor was broke in as claimed. Solid lifter would have presented when rotating on the stand. Once the hydraulic ones pumped up...can't imagine the other 3 exhaust didn't suffer. No use pondering on this , once you open it up, you'll discover the mix matching of parts. Sorry man.

Like I posted ,I've wiped pushrods out with no piston or valve damage. Other than the PITA of pulling the engine , may not be a lot of damage to your wallet.

Oh, cut open your oil filter to see what's in there for metal particles. (if the lobes got ground off ,guess where they are at) You know this Darrell, posting for the 100's who happen on this site and don't.

Ever wipe a cam out ? same symptoms---strange only 4 of ehaust push rods. Checking your timing gear set.


400 68 GTO I had---nylon timing gear set ,severe carb back fire ,guess what??

 one of my SBC's severe carb back fire---cam wiped out ,a few bent push rods.

Both spit up raw fuel through the carb. Both I shut down ASAP with minimal damage. On the chevy, dropped the pan checking for shrapnal, minimal ,most caught by the filter ,changed the cam push rods etc ,ran it hard after that for about 10 years. Blocks now at home in the Anglia ,rotating assembly boxed up.

Really what else could it be but bad cam timing ? Only the upward force of the piston would be strong enough to bind those pushrods and big blocks are ,er ,BIG. Let us know--steve.

Do you have an OHM meter ?  Or 12V test light ?

Power to the motor ?  Operate one way and not the other ? 

For starters un plug the motor and have some one operate the system while checking for power in the harness you had plugged into it ( feeder from limit switches---relay board )

I'm at work today ,can email you copies of the 67 instruction/troubleshooting guide tomorrow. Only problem I ever had was one of the motors went bad when the car was about 22 years old.

I agree with z28z11. I compared Danny's pics to mine and the characters are identical in detail. Except for my 4 touches at the top. In another pic of an authentic block ,one of his does not ,and his first one appears to. Lighting and camera angle can play tricks on your eyes looking at machining markings. Seeing as I'm the only one to ever pull the motor in my car ,I know mine are legit . I think it's real safe to say 1968 Z28's are. Smiley Looks like Danny's buddy's are also. IMO

I said, alien abduction, somewhere they are cloning the ultimate vehicle as we speak Cheesy

Got to add ,nice to see this car is in good hands. Hope it doesn't hit the red carpet and get crated up overseas. This one needs to be on display for all who know about them to enjoy. Captures a time long gone by.

The car basically sat entombed , even wiping the interior down on occasion--they would reappear. And still the flaws over the years.

By no means am I questioning, just adoring. Mine yellowed and pulled away around the edges. Keep in mind the car did do a little time in the burnout box. I had the underneath of the deck lid and hinges  left untouched. It's flawless and retains the jack , and small air shock? stickers. No surface rust in my trunk. Those pesky mildew spots in the interior look familiar from leaving the windows up year after year. I found fogging it with Lysol (fresh linen scent !) a few times a year prevented it. I would imagine some sort of moisture wick might also do the trick.

How did his jacking instructions not yellow ? No "spider web" cracking in the stripes ? Top edge of the spoiler flawless. Once again all I can say is wow. I can see were you would be excited going over that car in person.

In the 9 digit ,or 1's our identical ,my 4 closes at the top. I shot several pics of the VIN ,and based on the camera angle the stamping appears very subtle to deep. I sent Ed B. copies for the data base ,but I'm not posting. Hate to see "my" engine on Ebay one day.  04D build date.

Beautiful car. Everything about it is truly amazing. What stands out is it just wasn't " toyed" with. Per #1 owner "mods" were made to mine in the parking lot at the dealer. ( pollution control removed, manifolds plugged) By 69 cowl hood was added along with 67 hideaways and RS lower valiance, rear tail lights. Car was always babied, never seen snow ,garage kept. Fact is never was in the rain as of 76. ( I honestly don't know if the wipers work). I have all 5 OE tires ,but 4 were "abused" Even the exhaust which was taken off soon after delivery has surface rust. And it has always been attic stored. 36K on the odometer.

With all that it was sort of overly loved to the point paint was wore off in some areas from so much waxing. Any dings happened in the garage. Passenger side only, , as driver's side usually was against the wall. Hoses ,plug wires long gone.Plenty of semi-gloss black under hood and underneath. Small stone chips on the lower parts of the doors. But believe me ,I'm not complaining.

That 69 Z is truly something special. By the pics, presents as only a few years old. Sure that car wasn't abducted and recently beamed back down ? LOL!! Wonderful post and looking forward to future readings. thanks.
