Camaro Dudes!!  Hey I just scored this steering box I believe is for a Z/28. Was just wondering what is the actual application? Does it fit Chevelle, Nova, Firbird ???
 It turns stop to stop 3-1/4 turns. Actually about 3 and 3/16ths
When were they installed in relation to build dates?               So I can put fit's Nov. 30th 68' to Feb. 1st. 69' or ????

Numbers on Arm BOTTOM = NVD 1  J18      OCT. 1ST. 68 ????
Numbers on Arm TOP = 8770 
Numbers on Adjuster PLATE = 5686555
Numbers on SIDE = 5691676 And just to the right of that is either a 106 or a 108. If I had to guess I would pick 108

Wanna throw it online for sale. Thought I would do a little market and information research first.

As always, Thanx for your time......Danny
P.S.
How do you insert pictures instead of having to click on a jpeg or ??...

Here's a sure fire way to find out what it's worth:

List it on Ebay with a starting bid of $19.00. What ever the auction ends at is the real market value. No more and no less. Don't put a reserve on it as most serious bidders will ignore it then.

Yes, it looks to not be what I thought. Oh well..I paid $75 for it. I'll find the application and let it go. As far as putting on eBay....it's a hit and miss. Depends on if the right guy sees it and who is home and happens to see it that wants this exact item. I have listed things 3 times, only to have it hit reserve on the 4th relist. I would never just throw something online for sale that could be worth $600 for 20 bucks, and hope that the right person bids. If I found this box to be for sale at two or three locations for $300, I would list at $225, not 20 dollars. Thats a quick way to lose hundreds of dollars. Again, hit and miss. I have made THOSANDS of dollars on eBay. THOUSANDS!!! And not by putting a $2000 item up for sale for $50 to try to get lucky and see where it goes, just cause I don't know what it's worth. That's crazy! That's just MY thing. But if anybody happens to know this application I would appreciate it. The top little stainless tag on the cover says 11 0 0. Thanx in advance..........Danny

I also don't agree that one week on Ebay equals market value. I have sold many items second or third time on Ebay. It's a timing thing sometimes. Just because you list an item on Ebay doesn't mean that a buyer who needs it just happens to be looking at it and ready to pull the trigger.
