Looks interesting.
That the engine may not be original because the exhaust manifolds are wrong.
10 bolt or 12 bolt axle?

I posted a reply on the site. Hopefully they can understand me.... :)

btw, that 350 Yutivo was a one-off. There's no documentation that any similar cars were built at Antwerp.

Interesting Camaro, looks like it has some nice options. Do you have a better picture of the trimtag?

The front end (lower valance) looks like a RS model, RS tail lights as well. Obviously all RS stuff on the grill is gone and a 'barbeque' grill is installed instead.

Is it your car?

Very cool Philip!     :)

i have notice that the valve covers look like a 350 engine.

The valve covers on this car are aftermarket.  The factory original ones in '68 had no script on them.  The original valve covers also have one hole each in them for the PCV system.

Correct.  Below is a photo of what the original '68 chrome valve covers look like...

They look like stock 67 Chrome valve covers to me. What's up with the rubber strip on the rear bumper ? Lots of strange things going on with this car. What's the story on these ? Were they assembled in Belgium from parts shipped over from here or what ?

That's the European (ECE) data plate; note the "HX" in the VIN, which says it was built at Antwerp, Belgium.
