Re: 15x7 - 4"BS or 4.5"BS ???
Don't worry about the hijacking - I'm going to hijack my own thread now...
It's good to hear from you other Frost Green Owners out there - whether they're still Frost green or not.
I think the most common phrase on Ebay is the line "...originally Frost Green". Was apparently the 4th/5th most popular colour of 1969 - but you try to find one now!!!
For those interested, mine is:
Original YZ Black Plate California car, first registered in June 69, sold from the Pollock-Ravenscroft dealership just down thre road from the Van Nuys factory, where it started assembly in Feb 69.
It's an original Frost Green on Midnight Green car.
307ci, 350THM on the console, Front Bumper guards, Interior Style kit with wood panel inserts in wheel/dash.
Drum brakes all round
2.73 (or is that 2.76 I forget) rear axle
original steel wheels still on car with original dog dish hub caps
original front seat shoulder harness seat belts
Original engine had gone when I bought the car in May this year, but has a nice 350 now. Everything, apart form the engine, and possibly small bits of sheetmetal, is factory original on this car.
I live in NZ and after about 6months of carefull searching I bought the car, which was located outside Troy, Ohio. Had it shipped to LA, then shipped to NZ. I finally got the car 4 months after sending over the money - nearly one year after I started looking for one to buy seriously.
Car runs and drives fine, and is presentable from 20 feet, but is a bit scruffy all round - will be completely restored over coming years.
Came with original dealer stamped warranty booklet with Protectoplate still stuck inside - was never removed!!
I will be restoring the car to it's full glory with all it's original options and colours - but will restore the outside as a Z/28 (so adding black stripes, badges, rear bumper guards) seeing as the 307 is gone anyway and I love the look of Black Z stripes on Frost Green cars.
Might post pics when I know how.
Th only downside - I had to sell my gorgeous 62 coupe deville caddy to buy the Camaro!! - but I did spend 10 years wanting a first gen!!
