68 Z28 Survivor - Lemans Blue -
« on: July 27, 2017, 04:28:05 PM »
moderators please move-
 This is Dave Beem's 68 Z28 survivor which he purchased from the 2nd owner. Car is EXTREMELY NICE and unmolested with the original tires included. I have a number of detail photos will continue to post...

You know I love to document 68's James so thank you! One thing I noticed was the large steering arm nut with what appears to be zinc. Interesting in that is how I had ours, lock washer phosphate with clear zinc nut but changed to phosphate nut for judging. Keep those pics coming!

Chick,
 Did you document that FLAT handled dip stick? Notice no clamp on power brake vacuum line. Must have just gotten changed at one time and pushed on with no clamp to get it up and going. Would love to see a few hundred more pic's. This is one of my dream cars... color and all... Danny

Yes please post some good detail pics of the dipstick. I am in the camp of there being two suppliers for 1968. 

Maybe a pic of the fuel pump plate too.

Glad to see you on here Danny. I hope to see you posting about a new purchase in the future... :)

I agree with others on this beauty, keep the pics coming. Great find!
