http://www.ebay.com/itm/181233448098?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sacat%3D0%26_from%3DR40%26_nkw%3D181233448098%26_rdc%3D1

All made up to look like a Pacecar. Has a posted vin of 124667N155815 and a cowl tag of 05B, body number 158332.  He actually calls it a Pacesetter car, apparently not knowing exactly what the pacesetter program was.

7N155815 is a December of 66 VIN, and a body number of 158332 is beyond the end of 67 Camaro production at Norwood.

 Interesting tag. Option 1 position (W) and interior color code look to be misplaced.
  My 67 conv is a 5B period and the VIN and body  date and number is nowhere this one.
The seller does have an interesting article and I assume he is making it sound that this is a dealer car made to look like a Pace Car. Even so, that still wouldn't support the differences in the period mismatches of VIN tag info. if a dealer bought a non pacer.

Tags a repro, if the VIN on the dash matches whats on the car, none of the drivetrain is original as there were no BB's in December of 66 and all the parts in the car are based on the fake cowl tag build date of 05B.

 The engine pad is definitely not kosher   Wink
Not to be picky ( well maybe ) but he did say it can be a museum piece?
  • He makes it a point to stress how correct the car is and yet the engine ground is in the wrong place.
  • The TH400 pan looks to be wrong.
  • The rear antenna looks to have more pitch than usual. I suspect an incorrect base?
  • The trim tag is missing the rear antenna code
  • Spring/shock perch retaining bolts too long
  • The traction bar axle housing bracket is missing a hole above the mounting bolt. Not sure why. I looked at my 4B w/TH400 w/axle date 0404 and round bar and it has the extra hole in the bracket.
  • Looks like wrong oil dip stick style
  • looks like incorrect accelerator rod for that period
  • do I see spark plug shields?
  • missing PCV hose support bracket
  • water temp sending unit wire looks like it's in the wrong position
  • Wasn't there a break in the stripe by SS?
  • worm clamp on heater hose on engine side
  • missing vacuum advance tube
  • wrong valve covers...missing wire tower on left side and temp gauge wire hold downs
  • looks like a broken rear cover bolt
  • single piston disc brakes
  • where's the brake metering valve?
  • PB booster looks like a repro
  • non painted intake manifold bolts
  • clutch fan

And there are 5 bids for this?

That's enough for me tonight!
