Agree with Bullitt...very crisp , all cylinders hitting, (no smoke) nice "lobe" to it.  Can't beat firing it on a stand  prior to installation. On the race engine I have alignment marks dist/intake.

I love that look in that time frame.

In the mid 70's a friend of my Dad's (at that time) had a 427 factory Camaro. COPO-Yenko, could not tell you. By that time already had the psychedelic paint scheme : purple lace on white. I forgot about the car until I found some pics of it next to the Z. Ran into the owner some time ago. Had long since gotten rid of it. Bad a$$ car ! I remember the noise. It was reported a high 10 car. Really something for a  car driven on the streets in the 70's.  If you search YouTube (vintage Dragway 42) you'll find some shots of it. Also "Big Red" A 67 Chevelle ordered minus 396. 427 added at the dealer (another story for another site). Rode in that car a few times as a kid....him and the "old man"  street raced each other a lot. Hence my love of the high winding small block.

P.S....watch the fuel by the battery next time on the stand  Wink   ( I am a firefighter.)

Looks like it's coming along nicely. Schedule permitting ,should be finally able to get back to mine end of Feb. ( coming off a much needed skiing vacation, so I'm not complaining) Honestly just been prolonging as I have been undecided on the direction. Never wanted to go back stock , Day 2 was an option, but confines it still. To be continued...

stamped ,as you know ( don't have to pull the part out of storage for this one ,LOL) side note...car's never been in the rain or snow( at least since 76 ,and reported prior...it was always a toy) Honestly I don't know if the wipers work because I've never seen them operated ! It'll get a bench test before reassembly.

you just looking for 69's ?

68's arent cool enough for some of these guys.. Grin

Did they make a 68? Grin Grin Grin

Best flowing heads of the 3 years ( 302's) per a very reliable source.  To the thread: if you need 68 #'s let me know, looks like a 69 post.

If we assume that when it was certified, it was as a rebodied/restoration drivetrain vehicle as indicated by the second and final certification. The  professional appraisal value was 100,000-120,000 in 2008. No one on this site questioned the appraisal value then.... I don't know why, to me it was virtually worthless unless you collect documentation.  So logically if it was worth what it appraised for in 2008 at 100-120K, then based on the increased value in cars 148K is not unrealistic in today market.

Again the car has very little value whether it was in 2008 or 2015. There is nothing original and should be valued at nicely restored clone cars...but that's just my opinion.

I would guess that most of us share your opinion, Steve...  but then it IS a *pretty car*, and with B-J pushing certain cars, there are many big$$ folks there who bid on 'pretty', in response to the 'push' that B-J provides them...?   

but personally, pretty or not, I wouldn't trade my original, unrestored, partially-disassembled *real*  Z28 for it..  Smiley
    ditto. although I did want to repaint...my car. What I do not understand is how a re-body can stack up against a car whose un-original sheet metal can fit in the palm of one's hand ? And no filler. Of course there are those who go ga-ga over re-stamped carbs and alternators. Guess it depends who is pitching the car. Rule of thumb should be put your hand on what it rolled out off the line with.

not sure what you are looking for now ?  The tires on Craigslist were a bit bigger than E-70's. 6" rims only ? Are the tires on the car now original to it ? If not , why not just order the tires you want and have the mounted on your wheels ?? I put my originals back on 26 years ago, with new tires,  and that's what the cars rolling on now. High quality wheels, true, and no slow leaks at the bead. Irreplaceable ? yea,but so is everything else hanging off of and including the chassis.
