Paul - Thanks for posting this tag. First time I have ever seen a 3 dash special paint designation. Evidently it was only used in 68 by LOS/Fisher... Very cool!

12E - Dec 4Th Week
U063 - 19Th day of the month. 63rd body started that day.

Ed, it appears to have been a coupe.  Not much left now.  Too bad as it appears to have been painted a "hugger orange" color as seen on the cowl and other oversprayed areas.

Duh Paul!  68-12437 on the cowl tag tells you it was a coupe...   Embarrassed

Well Ed, going by the motor mount brackets and the accelerator pedal linkage, I'm going with V8.  What do you think?

There appears to be another subframe in the background.
It looks like a good project to me, but my wife doesn't think so Sad.
Could you find any original paint on the bottom side of the A-post areas?

That's my guess as well, but I figured if you had the full VIN you could confirm.

Not much left, but original disc brakes are worth $100 or so. The front sub frame another $100 or so.

I also see another sub frame, and a rear axle behind it. What's the code on the axle?

Is this a wrecking yard? The early model Corvair looks like it's a convertible, so there may be some parts on it the EM (Early Model) guys might be interested in.

Sorry Ed, the VIN plate is gone.  Only the partial VIN is there.  See photo below...

The seller doesn't say anything in the listing about the rear axle.

Ed, that's a 1962 Oldsmobile F85 Cutlass convertible.

Honestly can you do any?
More importantly
Would you be willing to do any more work to ID if this is a solid lifter LA Special Paint Car?

Just for fun what is the drivers front wheel and tire..
Maybe the firewall has visible chalk marks if wiped with windex?  or lightly scuffed?
Check the Wiper well for signs of white stripes or Black stripes.
Maybe a spring tag or shock tag exists?

AS a side note
The car appears to have been rolled.

The top of the firewall between the elephant ears is painted black over the orange body color paint.  Typical of a car equipped with a set of Z28 stripes from the LA plant.

I know it seems crazy but I bought it. I envision it as a Hugger Orange 68 RS Z/28. I think most of it will just buff out.

That Cutlass Convertible would be a nice car to restore for an Olds enthusiast.    That car would have come with a 215 ci ALUMINIUM V8 engine with 185 hp (4 bbl).  Unless I'm mistaken, you could also get either a supercharged or turbo charged version of that engine as an option?

Agreed on the COOL car factor. Not hooked in to the Olds scene though. If it's still there, I'll reprt back.

Anyone know what size the center link is?  That would also help clue in potentially what the are was..

Interesting that car was built a week after mine.  Would there have been almost 200 cars built in a weeks time around Christmas & New Years?

Yes. Van Nuys built 512 cars per day, 256 of which were Camaros. The full week off (from Christmas to New Year's day) didn't start until the early 70's.

What's the possibility that Camaro was a Z28?  With the special order paint, Muncie, disk brakes, etc..   it was more than likely a *special model* of some kind.    With that paint code, you could paint the car ANY COLOR you want, and it would be *correct* for judging purposes..  Smiley

Are you going to restore it?  a few body panels..  it would be good as new.  Smiley

I thought I'd try to buff it out first. Smiley   Yes, at one point I think it was a very cool car.  I am going to try to identify what the "special" paint was.

In looking at those photos, I noticed that the driver side engine mount has one of the attaching bolts coming up from the bottom (with the nut on top);  I recently found that same bolt on my car in the same cirection (opposed to all the others);  Is that the way all the cars were for some reason, OR does it just mean if  the bolt was ever removed, it was easier for the owner/mechanic to reinsert if in that direction???

From what i find, that color was not available for other Chevy models that year? I wonder where it came from and why. Also, the eBay car is a Norwood, and mine is LOS built 8 months apart.

I thought the orange from the factory was from the GM truck fleet line .?.  It's that what Dana used?

This is the one Lucas Restorations did- as far as I remember they never found any remnants of stripes.

Has the NCRS package been requested on this car?
If so where was the car delivered?

1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 – The Real Deal

Are you looking for a collector vehicle that will garner attention and admiration from all who see it? Are you a Camaro enthusiast searching for your Holy Grail car? Stop searching – we found it for you, and it’s right here in our showroom at Blue Marlin Motors USA!

This is an original, documented, one owner 1968 Camaro Z/28. How do we know it’s one owner, you ask? The original Protect-o-Plate warranty card and book are still with this car.

The VIN of this rare Camaro is 124378N409412.

The block casting number is 3914678, which authenticates the engine block as one belonging to a 302 cubic inch 290 horsepower V8 intended for a 1968 Camaro Z/28. The engine deck, as you can see in the photos, is stamped with a partial VIN stamp that reads 18N409412, verifying that this DZ 302 engine belongs in this particular 1968 Camaro Z/28.

The Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission mated to the engine is also original to the car. Its assembly date is P8C21, it sports a “660” case, and again the partial VIN of 18N409142 is stamped into the case as well. The 12-bolt posi-traction rear end has original 4.10 gears and an assembly date code of BV0321G, a casting date of B298, and a housing number of 860NF. It, too, is original to the car.

What really sets this car apart from the pack, aside from the fact that it’s only got 22,220 original miles, is its paint. The paint code was a special order, as evidenced by the “1001HA” code on the window sticker, as well as the “- -“designation for paint on the car’s original trim tag. This special order car was ordered and painted in a special hue called “Tangerine orange.” In addition to that, it is a real factory stripe delete car, and the paint on this car is original.

This car has been certified by Jerry MacNeish of Camaro Hi-Performance, INC – known worldwide as the authority on the 1967-1969 Camaro Z/28. It is a true survivor Camaro. The only changes from the day this car left the factory during the first week of April 1968 are minor. There is a Hurst shifter in between the bucket seats, and the smog pump, long known as a failure item and a concern on these cars, was removed sometime early in its life. Everything else is date-code correct for the car, making this quite possibly the most original Z/28 Camaro you will ever see.

A complete list of the codes will be below this description for your review.

If you want to add this piece of history to your collection, come see it in person here in our showroom. Blue Marlin Motors is close to Palm Beach International airport, and we’ll be happy to help you make arrangements to see the car from anywhere in the world.

Blue Marlin Motors can also assist you in finding financing for this or any other of our classic and collector cars in inventory. With rates as low as 2.5% from some of our favorite credit unions, and classic cars appreciating on average about 6% per year, financing a classic car is just money in the bank! Give us a call for more details!
