Your right idk what I was thinking..  Sorry

Also I was wrong about the console too since it was a LOS car.  Damn I was sucking it yesterday..  Does it even have the bracket or holes for one in the tunnel?  I see it has an auto column.

Contact me if you have a 68 L78/L89 Camaro to add it to my database.

Big truck for little parts




Yes, skins, I know.... Everyone says full quarters, in hind sight, I could use the top of the quarters to help repair the drip rail areas, but there is so little rust in the quarter it just seemed like the way to go... But, If anyone has those sail pieces leftover.........  :)

I've seen the photos at T. Camaro of your driprails. Since you need a roof skin too I'd suggest asking the shipper for a return label and have them send full AMD quarters. Use panel adhesive for the entire roof skin perimeter except the A-pillars and sails, they are to be welded solid.

Call them, maybe they'll cover it or meet you half way. From what vendor were they purchased? Better to lose a hundred bucks and do the job the right, easier and faster way.

ok, they said I have to pay the return shipping ($100) to return them. So I just made an ad on craigslist for what I have into them to see if I can sell them without taking the 100 dollar hit. I still really really dont want to have to deal with the nightmare of setting up all the gaps, wish I could find a sail panel.

I have some of my ford race parts on ebay, auction ends tonight, if it sells Ill have enough to buy the remaining sheetmetal parts asap (roof, full rear quarters)

its origionally coded a turbo 350 with a console?  It has the column shifter and only a L and D, so I assumed powerglide, but it def has a TH350 in it.
Thanks!

Welcome MooneyD!  Nice project you got there.  It would have came with a Powerglide, TH 350's didn't come along until very late '68, a few Camaros were used as "Mules".  There should be a 2M on the lower left of your Cowl Tag.   BTW, your car seems very similar to mine.

It's not a nightmare. You would have more time in buttwelding and skimming that skin seam than throwing on a full qrt. Out of box AMD qrts are not that bad. Chances are the deklid radii and lid to qrt sides will be off. If you want gaps better than factory then mods are required. Rebuild your door hinges and align them to the old quarters. If you don't want to do the hinges, send them to Willie. 8 and 9 hinges are a no-brainer but I send my 67 hiunges to Willie because he does and excellent job for the money, bettter than any rebuild kit you can buy.
