That's a little pricey. I have one that has been in my inventory since I bought my first camaro in 1975. Send me a PM, I would sell mine for half of that.

When I sold the car in 76, it had  triangle foam air cleaner on it that I bought at motion performance. I couldn't afford anything else from there!

Thanks ,I am looking forward to collecting the rest of the parts to start my resto on my car. I will have to pay someone to do the body panels and trunk. Even though I am almost 60 I can still handle the mechanical part of the job ,I can also do a lot of the interior myself. My plan is to reuse all of the interior except the headliner carpet. Will know more when I get the carpet out. Glad this site and members are around for good advice. I can avoid  SIS ( self inflicted stupidity) this time on the resto! I will get my son to show me how to post pics'. I live out in the country and have a slow Internet .Thanks to all.

Here you go guys...


I want to add a "BIG THANKS" to GaryW, "69Z28-RS" for giving me the opportunity to purchase an item I had previously inquired about here but couldn't buy because of an illness that I was going thru at that time. This restores my faith in that there are people out there that will go out of the way to help others. Thanks Gary...I got the item today and it looks better than I hoped it would and the patina is perfect. Now, I just have to figure out how to replace the cable on it so it will work.

I had a Carousel Red 69 GTO Judge for a while in the 90's. Same as H.O. and I just had enough of that color. I think 'Cortez Silver' is way better than any other color....  ::)

Finally - a man of reason concerning color (just kidding for all of you thousands of Hugger Orange fanatics).

Ditto on the seal extensions - glad you had the offer on the one; repros are pretty decent for the extension and the seal flanges.

The cable detaches very easily at the mast mounting... OR if you are 'good', you might be able to splice on a new end for the radio plug in.  :)

Just tugged on it and doesn't seem it will come out very easy, so I'm guessing it is a firm fit. If I can replace the connection end I'll give it a shot IF I can find some info on how. Gonna google to see if I can fine something.
