Question

Can someone confirm that this is a complete set of 68 Camaro cocktail shakers for me? The angle of the picture really makes it hard to verify the fronts.

Thanks!

PS - I stared at the pictures in the sticky post until I was seeing double. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I tried to clean up the ebay pic for you, hope it helps...



I think you can rule out the rears from being '69's...

I think those rears are '67 vintage. Pretty sure 68s have two top tabs...

Oh I appreciate the help Bill. I just thought I'd read/seen that fact somewhere. Sure doesn't mean that it is correct. [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

Like I said, I could be wrong. I was pretty sure though that all three years are different. The ones on the EBay ad would definately fit in a '67 and are definately not '69s. Looks like '68 is a grey area.... hopefully someone else will give their opinion here...

Actually, I am wrong...I think.... I should just have kept my mouth shut on anything except '69. Anyway, here is a '68 'vert with them installed, and it looks like only one on the top/side. Sorry to mix things up here...

LOL No problem Bill. I've opened my mouth a time or two in response to 69 questions and found out that I was 100% accurate for a 68, but that the same rule didn't apply to 69s. Oh the fun!!!

Donald,
They don't look like the correct fronts for your car either. Remember all the hassle I went through, first with the wrong ones sent from a parts place who swore they were correct?
The "legs" on the front ones don't seem long enough.
I'm looking thru my stuff, and switching hosts for my website, but as soon as I can, I'll post the pics here. But my guess is, they wont work. I'd hate to see you go thru the same stuff I did.

This isn't my car, but the install was the same. Note the long front "leg". This is a 68, non RS model.

Here's the pair I bought (before being cleaned, painted, refurbished) and installed. They fit perfectly! In the photo that Dennis posted for you, its kinda hard to tell, but the front "legs" don't look long enough.

Hmmmmm... as I look at the pics from ebay again, maybe its just the angle that makes the "legs" look shorter. The rear ones actually look correct.
Can you get the seller to send you a different angle picture?

Hey Steve!

Yeah I was thinking it was the angle of the pics as well that made them look short. I don't know why I didn't think about asking for more pics. [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]

I guess I really expected these to go up to around $400 and no one has even bid on them yet. The deal I had for a complete set for $200 never materialized so I'm still looking.

Thanks for the info!

PS - Hows my 385 HOT cam motor running?
