Pity there's no picture of the trim tag.

Asked him for a pic of the cowl tag. Here is our banter so far below. Waiting for new response.. Danny

  Please email a clear close up picture of the trim tag on the cowl. Thanx..


   I would prefer if you came look at it so it won't be on the Internet


    Why would that matter? There are thousands online right now all over the world. Itís not like your posting your social. All it does is show some things about the car, some options, color of car, trim, what number in the sequence the car was built, etc. You do know the VIN is not on the cowl tag right?...

His reply to my last question. AND, my next question to him... Danny

  I would have to get it tomorrow and send you the picture


  Ok, sounds good. It would also really be good to have the VIN. Cause that helps tie it all in. Itís not a big money car by any means. So itís not like somebody is going to track it down and try to come steal it.

I see the asking price is $6500. "how many  camaros are left on (on the road) ?" This car will be bought and be put back on the road. It seems like a first gen camaro has to practically crumbling into the ground for one not to be restored, or stored for a future resto. I (still) have a 66 Chevelle SS that I bought back in the day that was pretty similar condition I did a quick aerosol overhaul of the engine compartment, and interior, dropped in an extra 396 I had laying around, & traded a fender for a muncie 4 speed. by the time I had it on the road I think I had about 1200 to 1300 into it and I drove the piss out of it for the next 6 years. My point being is: it was an affordable 60's muscle car that ended up turning low 12's in the 1/4 for very little cost.  My car might have been in a little worse condition to start with, and at a minimum I could see someone doing the same with this car.
I don't have a digital image of the car when I bought yet, but here is another one of my 66's that is just a tad better condition, but you get the idea.

Sorry if my original post seemed kind of sarcastic. Maybe I'm just bitter that I sent a 69 away to the crusher that still had a usable roof,firewall, and cowl tag. Just seems at some point to be too far gone. 1f you have to replace 75% of the sheet metal, 100% of the running gear and interior, 90% of the glass and 100% of the trim, what do you really have?
I guess that's why I kept the VIN and Cowl tag from the one I sent it away.

I hear you on the 20/20 rear view. All I'm saying is on almost any of these projects, replacing the interior is a given, glass can be saved most of the time, or can be found relatively easy, motor/trani again pretty easy.
Ok so now the meat of the argument the sheet metal:So if a car has poor sheet metal,  One guy may say "junk the car", another may say just replace enough to get it on the road, ( I have a friend who just fixes the metal enough to make them a 20 ft road worthy car), another may go front to back giving it necessary sheet metal. It just depends on the guy, and his initial investment in the car.
But I will tell you this if you have a good roof and firewall, and vin, you throw some full quarters on it, and it may seem like your half way done at that point and over the hump.
I have another friend that bought a plain jane 65 mustang coupe. (original v8 car). And replaced A LOT of metal on that car, we both learned to mig weld on that car. He basically saved it from the junk yard, because he liked that body style and got a deal on the rolling chassis.

The right buyer has a dream of what it will look like done, and sometimes it is the journey of bringing the car back that is worth more than the first drive when you get it done

(1964 C/10- the only original metal on the this truck is the radiator support and frame. 7 or 8 rusty long beds and 1 short bed gave their life so my truck could see the road rust free)

Here is the cowl tag. I am surprised he cut the upper right side off to protect the production number. That's a red flag already....I don't know what the hell he thinks he has. This thing is pretty much a pile of crap. I wonder how many people died in that thing. ;D... Danny

I don't think he cut it. He just stuck an index card or piece of paper over the corner. If there is a problem with what is shown, I don't see it.

I meant he cut that part out. Not literally cut the tag. I think your right, he set an index card on top and took the pic. Funny I don't know what he's trying to hide. I sent another email asking for the VIN, we'll see.... Danny

Tags looks good....
To some degree, I can understand why sellers are wary of supplying photos to "tag chasers", especially if the requester of the photos has no interest at all in buying the car, and the seller later finds it the subject of discussion on an Internet forum.
I understand the motivation for assisting those who track VINs and TTs, and find the dark side of the hobby - fooling people with fake cars - disgusting, but I can also see why some sellers are reluctant to provide VIN and tag details to strangers via email.

I don't know about that. If there is nothing to hide, show both tags and good pics of the car and get it sold.
