Adding, I do know of a car where the 427 was installed, instead of the 396 .at the dealer. His father worked there and he was able to have it delivered that way. No special tags or badges.

Depends on the asking price, but who wouldn't want to own a clean 67 with a 427 ? add M22 + 4:88's mmm...
Original or not .

Check the Yenko registry, pretty sure they have them all numbered and accounted per vin. Good place to start.

Mines apart right now so I can check the doors for ( 68) difference ?  I do have a question. While it's apart I'm documenting all the numbers ,taking pics and sending copies to Ed B. Concerning the sheet metal: are all panels/pieces stamped ? Front clip etc...? It's all OE and wonderful shape so somewhere I want it noted. I know doors ,hood---can't find it on fenders ,valiance, etc. My body man is also shooting pics and leaving the undersides untouched. Lots of inspection markings. Anyway I'll get those pics of the doors posted in the near future--Saturday.

Disturbing...crush what's left ,RIP.
668  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: how about this one on: September 11, 2013, 04:28:41 PM
I remember it being a short lived fad some years ago to shoot the wheels the body color, from the factory, doesn't make sense considering the build process ,however I do not know for sure ,there are some that would on this site. Wouldn't they shoot the spare  Huh You know ,get caught in one lie ,more  to follow. Side note ,love to see a rare color  ,stripe delete , 68 z going for over 100K. Where do I sign up?!
669  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1969 DZ BLOCK OR NOT... on: September 03, 2013, 08:08:27 AM
Still a Z ,look at the VIN.

You can stick what you want between the wheel wells and you have a" Z " without the 302 . Can't put a 302 in what came with a 6 banger , glide and a 10 bolt and ever make it one.

Like was suggested ,if you're building it to go out and have fun or even have plans in the distant future to sell it , stick another engine in it and keep looking. Too many unknown variables with your car to suggest investing 10K+ in a 302 will immediately raise it to a level demanding top dollar. Plus a deal on one may surface.

 Hate to say ,and am still on the fence, but  probably will end up installing an early 327 I have , leaving the 302 on the stand . That was my thoughts years ago when it got a 400 for street/strip use. The final purpose should dictate the build.

You can get a Dart little M ,Callies rotating assembly ,Lunati roller, Dart heads and intake---better add the Moser rear end and axles !---be ahead $$ and put my numbers Z in the weeds---food for thought   Wink

The prices are down on these cars and yet the rare parts are through the roof ,IMO wouldn't get a return on your money to build a non numbers match 302. Of course I'm no expert, just own one.

And yes ,it P's me off the prices ,captive/hostage is a great term. 1300 for an alternator ? no time soon!

Just fishing for your input ,pretty active on the site and appear to know your stuff.
672  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1111499 Distributor Question?? on: August 31, 2013, 10:10:43 PM
I think that is the problem ,the stamping does look too fresh as compared to the marring on the rest of the body, although it is highly polished. You can sort of tell what it looked like before tumbler time. Not to say it is not the real deal ,just that fine line between done right and over restored.  top $ = top scrutiny ( I'm bias, only one guy I trust sending my parts to, and I called him almost daily)
673  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: rear brake/fuel line removal on: August 31, 2013, 09:47:15 PM
Engines out, cars peeled down on the lift. I cant see making the turns through the subframe without screwing up the factory bends. Subframe is coming out soon anyway so it really does not matter but the lines are hanging ( secured ) in my way. Wondered if anyone had luck snaking them through ? If I have to loosen the bottom two bolts for clearance ,figured I might as well wait.  More fun running 1/2" braided !
674  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / rear brake/fuel line removal on: August 31, 2013, 08:03:47 PM
I'm 99% sure of the answer but I am putting it out there anyway, do I have to wait to drop the subframe before removing the fuel and rear brake line ? They are OE and I don't want to #$%^ them up ! I am to the point of being sick of removing .040 of undercoating ,rustoleum , factory overspray etc... I am down to using a brass toothbrush with laq. thinner so almost there. Upside ,gorgeous !   Cook DW Huh


Race cars are a whole lot easier than restoration !!

All of it is BS made for TV , remember PINKS ?  Made it and ran it at Norwalk a few years ago. My car was running 10.3 and had it dialed in at 10.5 for a gasser class---never got my time slip ,word was they were looking to group 10.5 cars. They looked for a story and wrecks. Had I put the little yellow Anglia in the guard rail ,it would have made the show. ( did pull an early 426 Dodge by a fender before the first beam, love those high revin SBC's ! )
