Factory paint was sprayed using enamel, quick and dirty. Orange peel and runs were the norm.

Incorrect. Camaros were painted with acrylic lacquer. Only wheels were painted with enamel.

Imo, for what it's worth, this dealer is fishing. 99% of them know nothing about these cars but they look at what other dealers ask and always go above because they think they  can sell it. I think it'll be sitting on his floor for a while.  To each his own but I don't like the colors any way. Red reminds me of a fire truck on '69s  ;D. Red looks much better on the 67/68 cars, imo. That particular red actually looks a bit darker to me - maybe it's the clear on it that makes it pop. Factory paint was sprayed using enamel, quick and dirty. Orange peel and runs were the norm.

I recently read an article that says if 66% of US vehicles were electric the US electricity generation would have to double and most likely would peak at night when solar does not work. I consider myself as "green" as most with 62 solar panels at my home but math is math. We have a long way to go unless one of us invents a new battery or new power generator. I wouldn,t ditch your gas cars too soon.

I blanked out the name. It was on there, and also on the POP. Looking for the car, but it appears to be gone forever.

The 'CE' and 'CT' stamps were initiated by GM prior to the '68 model year in order to satisfy a state of Georgia requirement that major replacement components be uniquely identified.  So Sept '67 would be near the beginning of that GM action.

Is that date known for when the CE code was first stamped on a block? I see some articles say 1967 and others say 1968

Like today when cars were traded in dealers, wholesalers, and used cars lots most times did not want the past owners name to be known to the new owner. They went through cars and removed anything concerning the former owners information. They still do it. I recently traded in a 3 year old pickup in perfect condition and offered to talk to any future buyer to let them know why I traded it. It is still on their lot as of 2 weeks ago since Thanksgiving. No calls. I tracked one of my 69,s back 4 owners to 1977, then that owner said he bought it off a used car lot, dead end.

Very cool indeed. Someone must have been over reving that poor thing.

It seems pretty straight forward to keep repair receipts nowadays. If for no other reason I keep them to just show any potential buyer down the road. However, that doesn't seem to be the norm back in the day. I know I never kept any when I was younger.
