You could always add a posi if you needed ? What are the plans for the car ?

I want to keep it as original as posible. Do u think adding a posi would hurt the value of it?

Find a 10 bolt 8.5 rear end from a 70's nova some had posi but if not you could get the posi carrier and gears from a second gen camaro/trans am. It is a bolt in setup. I just did it on my 68. Then you could keep your original 8.2. Theres an article in Chevy High Performance " Budget 10-bolt upgrade"

Try and keep what ever you take off the car so it can go back to all original at a later time if you change your mind.
In my opinion having an all original Camaro is something special.

value is in the eye of the buyer. ive seen completely un-original cars sell for more then original ones. All depends on what the buyer is looking for.

My advice, Your car build it the way you want.

Adding a posi wouldn't be all that hard.
Now you want to keep it numbers matching ??? Is it just a cruiser ? Then the open rear would be fine IMO.
