I'm in Bullitt's camp. larger wheel wells. you can fit a little more meat under 69's then 7's or 8's I think.  Other then that love the lines, just one of those cars that don't have a bad angle. I like the vent windows on 67's.

I ran a 26 x 8 on a 15" corvette rally. in a 68 with staggered shocks. I'm at work now, cant give you backspacing.  This was the recommendation from Harlow Tire at Norwalk. Safety first.

gave enough bite to just pull the front wheels with a 5 grand stall/4:88's. foot braking

Will double check for you tomorrow when I get home.

Try browsing racing junk.com.

Not like I've had the time to play with what I got now....but I do like to " window shop " a lot.  Worth a look. Depends what you want to build ,but as Gary said, SBC's are relatively cheap. Might find a roller project.

My guess is if there was 1 site with solid project cars, everyone would hear quick, and up go the prices !

Are we talking "Percentage with MO/DZ on their blocks"?  or "% with factory original engine/drivetrain" ?? 

There's gotta be a big difference in those two percentages..  Smiley

 Wink ditto.

Always something interesting. I love these old ads. How some of the innovation forged ahead, and some passed.

I've never seen it mentioned on this site or anything remotely recent pertaining to the Camaro's history. Years ago I read an article stating much of the Camaro's lines were "borrowed" from the Corvair. I was probably in high school at the time, and have no recollection of the reference. Huh

Nice car BTY, I've really gotten into 6 cylinder convertibles ! What a great summer ride.

Check with Vintage Air on application, they have been around awhile with a good rep. Dragging down ? Every 4 banger on the road today has A/C, my opinion is the inline 6 should have enough torque to turn the compressor while cruising.

You "believe it  to be Fathom Green?  68 Z's are MO blocks. (mine is anyway) Man that's a long time ago, I'm sure many moons ago it was parted out, gutted and doing 1/4 mile time.

Have him solder the 1/8 holes shut.

thought about that today, you beat me. have him check the base plate for warping ,also the metering blocks. Think I mentioned this.

no not stock, this was actually a tuning tip per Holley to help smooth the idle with longer duration cams vs. opening the throttle plates more having to idle at  say 1200.

Also he's making the disc for the body work ( or lack of  Smiley) pics. Will be posting in the future.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: battery hold down bolt on: October 22, 2014, 07:04:14 PM
Thanks ,literally just came in, my buddy who shot the Z came over and we removed the front clip. He diagrams everything and utilizes letters to designate the fastener locations. So we just had the conversation what's needed. My hold down strap is in good shape. ( dimples and all)
