Hey fellas, I've been reading posts here for a while, trying to get educated before I buy my first Camaro.
I've narrowed down my search to a '69 Z28 (clone) and a '68 SS. They are very comparable in condition. the Z has a 302, TH700 automatic and a 12 bolt. The SS has a 396, TH350 (3 speed), 12 bolt with posi and 4.10 (or 4.11?).
Both were frame off restorations a few years ago.
The Z is slightly better built in terms of final finish and alignments. I like the 700r4 trans for the overdrive.
The SS has one or two very minor alignment issues on passenger door and hood. I noticed them, but can live with them. I think I'd want to change the differential gearing and/or the trans. I'd have to hire both of these jobs out.
Both drove well, sound great and look fantastic. I'll only use this as a second for weekend, local drives. Probably wouldn't get out on the highway much at all.
Any advice, or additional considerations before I pick one?
Thanks for any input!
