Alright, missing a few still attainable items . Paint not OE color ,but on straight car, which is turn key btw. If top dollar on the market is mid 60's, and you are walking the fence on rolling it, I'm with TODD at mid 50's--maybe at a bottom line. Window shoppers will keep walking.

If I was buying, I see the 302 on the stand as a plus. You say the heads are on the 350 ?

I have turned down serious offers in the past ,certainly with no regrets.

was welded in 68 also, why was that ?  Noticed it when I pulled my exhaust out of storage for pics. ( sloppy weld job BTY)


Beautiful car

Don't know why I was thinking wide ovals ,no coffee in me at the time.

Welded because in production it establishes positioning and it's one less part that needs to be fastened. Might not sound like much but at 57 units per hour it adds up.

On the N10 standard system the head pipes were also welded to the resonators but I believe that was an MVSS requirement. Something else that recently came to light is the original production configuration of the "bright metal" tailpipes. The LH tailpipe was the standard 1-pc pipe; the end of it polished raw steel/flash chromed. The RH pipe was 2 pc welded construction with the tip nickel/chrome. Several original systems still exist in this form.

Remember all this if you see a complete NOS exhaust system for big $. Might be NOS but service replacement components were not identical to parts used in production.



don't want to step over the thread, will send you a personal message--steve

Plus column far exceeds negatives. Beautiful , straight car. Appears a nicely done clone with a few personal touches , but it's not. It's the real deal with the 302 sitting on a stand. And from what you say, not a bunch of after market sheet metal built around a vin tag.

I like your car quite a bit, but I'm a little partial to 68 Z's lol.

The cost of getting one to that level in primer alone?? From some of these barn finds?

If you are on the fence, set the bar high. It's the person who doesn't have one in the garage that may come off the long dollar.

tires, did they change in 69 from the wide ovals used in 67 and 68 ?
51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: OT - Talk about an insane price for a 'Cuda on: June 21, 2014, 05:28:59 AM
Cuda's are cool looking to me, similar proportions to the 69 Camaro. I am not a big convertible guy, but I would love to have a 70 AAR 4 speed.

I agree, they share lines.

Jesus man...  Now I remember why I never wanted kids..  Cheesy  Just wasnt for me.  Pets are my kids.. Grin

And you don't have to buy them a newer 4x4 Silverado to take back up to college for those nastier Michigan winters LOL.

I honestly can not remember the last time I drove the Z on the street.

I see it !   Glass body.... right ? mmm....  Hang it on a S & W chassis, can not imagine much left underneath Cry would make a nice toy to haul up to Norwalk Bill. 42 should be up and running next season. All new. Lots of fun running those Gasser meets.....just a thought Grin

Good point is they were not perfect. Above my fuel tank was basically bare metal, "mist" of primer. Good representation Oaklyss. I've posted before ,ironically, more time was involved trying to replicate "factory" vs. "over restored"  in mine anyways.

Thought maybe they did not do the kilometer to mile conversion ,which would put it at around 12mpg (off the top of my head). Interesting article . Two different mind sets concerning autos between here and across the pond back then. Interesting the Z was so well received. Love them articles Jon.

I read the specs, agree. DWC usually beats me to the punch.

Cook may have already answered your question with his 69 pic.
