Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

I couldnít find anything saying the nomination entry has to be a finished product, so Iím entering my WIP í69 Z/28 that Iíve had since 1971. If WIP is not allowed to enter, you can delete my post. And hopefully the description of my project doesn't exceed any size limitÖ

Up for consideration is my í69 Z that Iíve been working on the past several years. All of the work has been done in my garage and driveway, including the bodywork and paint. It is a 06A Norwood X33-coded Z that came in Fathom Green with Dover White stripes, and the dark green interior. Iím keeping it as close to stock as possible. This is my first attempt at doing something like this, so go easy on me. Itís my first 1:1 model car attemptÖ.

Here goes, this is what Iíve got Ė

Original 302 is unfortunately long gone, so in its place is a 383, with all components keeping with the stock appearance as much as possible. The alternator is the one that came with the car, along with all of the pulleys and the alternator bracket. The water pump was replaced back in the early Ď70s so itís kinda close to being original.

Pretty much everything on the car is original to the car. The exceptions being the engine, front suspension, radiator, front seats, dash pad, carpet, headliner, and windshield glass. I put in a smaller diameter steering wheel and short Hurst shift lever back in the Ď70s to give me more leg room clearance.

The bumpers, bumper guards, and door handles are also replacements as the originals need to be rechromed so theyíre in storage until I save a bunch more pennies..

All of the brake lines and fuel line are new stainless steel units, along with a new gas tank.

I re-wired all of the car with a Painless wiring harness kit.

I am putting a flat hood back on it as in 1974 I had the Chevy dealer in Norfolk, VA install a cowl hood while I was stationed in the Navy. It was somewhat rare back then but now seems like everyone has the cowl hood so Iím going back to a flat hood.

It has the original Muncie 4 speed and 3.73 geared rear that have both been restored by a local Camaro guru.

Iíve put Hotchkis drop springs in the front and rear. I have L&H Kustom spindles on the front along with SPC upper and lower control arms. The front brakes are Baer. The exhaust system is the Magnaflow 2 1/2 ď stainless steel system. The headers are Blackjack AlumaKote headers I bought back in the 1980 timeframe, but never installed until now.

All 5 wheels are 15x7 American 200S that I bought back around 1977 with the 2 piece center caps, which I cleaned up and had 225/60-15 BFG T/A radials mounted.

The front seats I came across, so the original front seats are in storage and I had the rear seat and Ďnewí front seats redone to match with a pattern similar to the original design.

Other than the engine build, the trans and rear restoration, the front and rear glass installation, and the exterior paint job, Iíve done just about everything else myself. I stripped every inch of paint (body and undercarriage) by hand (lots and lots of DA sanding) including use of my dremel to get into the real tight spaces, including the trunk.

The undercarriage I painted epoxy single stage gray, with the engine compartment, subframe and various undercarriage components painted various shades of black.

We built a homemade paint booth in my garage where I had the exterior painted PPG bc/cc in the original colors. The stripes were painted using the Phoenix Graphics stripe kit.

Iíve been doing the cut and buff work, using 1200, 1500, and 2000 grit.

All of the emblems are the originals that I cleaned up and restored using One Shot sign paint. The rear taillights are the Digitails LED unit in the original taillight housings and lenses.

If youíre still reading, Iím closing now as I probably exceeded what the size of the entryís post is supposed to be.

Thanks for reading, and for your consideration in this monthís ROTM contest.

Have a safe and Merry Christmas (am I allowed to say that???).

John

P.S. Ė I know they said no nudity, so I apologize for the picture of the naked undercarriage. Thatís just an example of how far down I took everythingÖ

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

Hey I have no problem with your entry, the more the better!

I really like the 200S wheels, and you combine that with the flat hood, and the car is going to look awesome. Not sure if the comfort of those new seats would trump the looks of the original seats, but thats just my 2 cents...
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

Well technically yes you can enter in progress projects. We do run a Wreck of the Month in March for April first awards for a project that should in most minds have been crushed but through hard work and shear cash has come roaring back to life as a restored vehicle. And last year we ran a winter project which I intend to do both again this coming year.

Under ten days left folks to get your nomination posted. Santa may bring you a late gift from NPD or CoverCraft so get to it.

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

Current house is too small for the '67, so we bought a farm.

I painted the garage, had the flooring polymered and brought her home.

1967 Camaro Base Model
6 Cylinder 250, raised compression, truck CAM, Holley 4BBL 490CFM, Headers, 200-4R 4 speed OD, Custom Stainless Exhaust
Power disk bakes and Power steering added (and there was much rejoicing!)

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

My 67 Camaro Black Panther.
I am the second owner of this rare Camaro that is one of approximately 20 sold by Gorries Chevrolet in 1967. It has only 89,000 miles on it and was resprayed 14 years ago in its correct A-A tuxedo black paint with the gold striping that all Black Panther cars had. The BP cars came with Black exterior, Deluxe gold interior, Redline tires on Deluxe Magnum 500 wheels and Black Panther fender and trunk emblems (currently being reproduced). Options my car came with were the 007 console switches under glass (a $29 option believe it or not), power steering, power brakes, Interior decor package and exterior moldings. It is a 327 automatic car.

Thanks for the consideration.
Shawn

Shawn, nice to see vehicles of this nature and rarity come out of the woodwork.
Lets not dissuade vehicles from being showcased and leave the policing up to the Moderators.

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

Well, I am going to fail on the drivers side preferred (was in the shade ) With 2 amateur photographers in the household, do you think I could get them to take some pics of my car in the warm weather with the top down??? NOOO, I had to move the cars around today and needed to warm it up anyways, so here are the pics I took today, a dirty car, in December, right after a snow storm, with my old iphone camera. But at least they are recent!

69 Camaro 327/210 PG with style trim, early Oct 1968 build, original short spoiler, 4 wheel power drums, power top, factory tinted glass, factory walnut wheel, console, original interior (except for front seat covers, carpet and dash pad), had 88K miles when I bought it and up to 97K now.

Her name is Jinx

Bought in 2000, mostly original, 100% restored in 2005-2009. The original 327/210 is on the stand awaiting a rebuild. My SS's 350/300 is under the hood masquerading as a 4bbl 327

Has a 200r4, 3;55 posi and an aftermarket 8 track hooked up to a 4ch amp Cruises highway speeds all day long!

Re: December 2017 Team Camaro RIDE of the MONTH

I am still having trouble attaching my engine photo. I want to follow the rules but even after resizing the photo to 640x480 it won't allow me to upload it. Is there a limit in the size or number of photos allowed for a new TC member?
