From the files of “They NEVER built it”.
« on: April 25, 2022, 09:18:42 PM »
I’ve seen it, worked on it, given advice on how to preserve it, pushed him to show it in public for people to see it. His name is Lee and back in the 50’ thru the 70’s, his father in law was a big wig at Chevrolet in Engineering. Lee and his wife got her father’s demo. Back window is original, the grill and gas cap emblem were restamped, it’s got some “experimental parts on it”.

Date code is on same line as the AS6, but to the right and below the other bottom side of the Regalite diamond logo.

Looks like H7…I’ll see if he can send a more clear picture.

I feel like I have seen that emblem and gas cap before in the past..  Just can't remember when and where.
1968 - Rallye Green L78 unrestored
1968 - Matador Red Z28 - Currently under preservation

If you have solid lifter 1967 - 1969 Camaro please contact me as I would like to add your car's info to my database

If not mistaken the one on the 68 RS/SS pictured with the custom 68 C10 from the hotrod article and NY autoshow was custom lettered.

I think the letters are from the CHEVELLE letters on a mid 60's Chevelle.
I first though they were Corvette letters from the tail of a C3. however the base of the corvette letters stand out from the body further because of the curve in the rear tail panel.

He’s taken it to the GM Nationals in Carlisle before. Took some prodding but he got it there. Let people see it and enjoy it, take pi, etc.
