Roy bought a really original 68 SS350. Hopefully he figures out how to post pics. :)

Sure is ! Notice the white cowl tag. Have heard some Norwood 68's got that, but this is the first I've seen it. What's the build date, if you don't mind me asking ?

Thanks !

The date code on the cowl tag is 10B and yes it appears to be painted white!

Long story short this is Jerry MacNeish's fault, I've been bitten again and as a result I now own another car, like I need another one. I’ll have some better pictures eventually, right now I'm just trying to wrap my hands around it. Jerry MacNeish pointed the car out to me and advised me that it is one of if not the best unrestored Camaro's he has ever inspected.

I know the brake hoses and battery have been changed. It's butternut yellow, black vinyl hardtop, 4speed. Still has the original door protectors used at the factory for shipment, protect-o-plate, original title and owner history to day one.

I'm just a sucker for these original unrestored cars. Original paint, exhaust, mufflers, clamps, red line tires and it drives spectacular, like a new car. I know you want pictures, it may be a few days before I get better ones to you because frankly I'm travelling and not going to be near its climate controlled storage for ten days.

I know very little about Camaro's, do believe the rally wheels are added based on notes in the file on the car.

Any one else notice the additional "T" under the trim tag and the 2? on the pass side??   8)

Roy could you double check and make sure Im seeing it correctly that the heater hoses are GM logo on one and ribbed on the other?  Congrats again on an amazing 68.

Fantastic car Roy, a real beauty. I noticed the additional T. I also took note of the patina on the logo hose versus the ribbed heater hose. The engine compartment is spectacular!

Also looks like no dum dum under the squirters but kinda hard to tell from the pics..  Green car did not have any either but have seen others that have..  Must have been hit and miss.

Yes one hose ribbed, one GM logo. Thank you all for the kind words. It's important I think that you realize I have not washed or cleaned anything at this point, eventually I will - cautiously.

I've attached another photo I have with me, again I'm away from the car so can't send you any detail photos I do not have with me until after 7/26.

 That's cool the 'MS' didn't fade from engine heat. I assume that was done in a grease type of marker or maybe chalk?

I have a few pics with the engine code on the pass head for 68.  One is a MO too..  Great pics.

  Grease or chalk, if you were to guess.

Grease and it seems to have been a white that has discolored over time.  Again personal opinion and experiences.

Edit:  Not the best pic but the only one I had with me.  Summer of 68 is the timeframe of the pic.

Perhaps a marker like this? It develops yellowish skin over time.
