Can John Z and Ed comment on the use of red oxide primer on the interior of the 68 Camaro. I have pictures of my car when it was taken apart for restoration and it had a light coating of red oxide primer or some type of rusty red looking primer under the headliner, around the interior and doors, some traces under the rear package tray and under the dash.  This weekend I watched the talked to the judges at the Camaro Nationals and was told they did not accept any red oxide primer anywhere on the car as they did not use red oxide until 69, and that the primer should be dark gray. Are they correct? We painted everything back the way we found it and want to know if I have to change it to dark gray to be correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated before we complete the restoration.  Thanks for all the help!  Scoop

The reddish color on V1009DZ's pic, is that the factory primer or what?  In Jerry's book he said floor pans could be semi-gloss black, mine were the color of V1009DZ's rear bulkhead.

Yup, that's factory primer.

Guys if your car has anything other than light grey or dark grey primer on the interior areas only, please post pictures if you can. So far in the past couple of days I have looked at 7 68's and 3 67's, and none of them have true red oxide primer on the interior areas. However, some do have a brown primer, the same as Larry's (scoop) car did originally. I also looked at the low mile 68 SS350 at the show last weekend and it too has brown primer, not red oxide. Some may refer to this color as red oxide, but it is not the same. I have already seen a pattern forming, but I will not make any conclusions until more cars are looked at and verified. So far there have not been any 67-68 cars with this brown color in any area other than the interior surfaces of the body. Nothing showing on the underside, trunk (excluding the underside of the pkg tray), or exterior areas. Guys that have red cars really need to observe them closely as red body color overspray that is on top of the grey primers will make them look brown or even orange if they have light grey primer.

Any and all help is appreciated. I have researched this heavily for over 5 years, and until I started compiling my info this week because of Larry being persistant at the show I didn't see the pattern forming...................Thanks,..........RatPack.................

There was a 68 survivor at Frederick, MD this year with what appeared to be a brown or red oxide primer in the trunk and Keith who has the great looking 68 SS350 car told me his was red oxide.

I don't have pictures of Keith's car before restoration, but it was probably blrown just like the others including that red car we judged. I took lots of pictures of that one. So far there have not been any with the red oxide primer like what started showing up in 69 and all 2nd gen cars. So far the only cars that have this brown primer are Norwood cars. Attached is a picture of "scoop"s car before restoration.............

my 67 is red o xcide inside with yellow overspray.
Which plant? Please post pictures or email them to me as none of the 67's I have observed have anything other than two shades of grey...................RatPack.................
