  2. 1st Generation 1967 - 1969
    Recently I changed my power top motor, cylinders, and lines. It worked perfectly for about a month then I was putting my top down and it stopped midway and was no longer making a noise in the motor but it worked putting it back on. I assumed it was the power top switch and I replaced it and...

    Hi - I have a '67 convertible w/427, recently moved from CA where AC wasn't required. In the Austin, TX heat it's just too hot during the summer w/o AC for me to enjoy. Looking to hear from others with 1st gens on whether having AC (Vintage Air or Classic Auto?) will provide enough cool air...

    Hi all. I've finally decided to reach out to the forum. I read a lot of feeds on here and am so thankful for them but I can't find anything about my current issue. I am stumped. Our 67 Convertible Camaro just won't start. I have been working for three days trying to figure it out and I just...

    Hello everyone. Quick question. I recently did a manuel to power top conversion on my '69. When the pump is on and the frame is in motion, all seems fine. When is approaching the extent of its travel to either its up/down position, it basically sounds like the motor is shutting down. If I keep...

    Here is the plan for our 1968 Camaro that we affectionately refer to as “Lil’ Red”. She has never been restored and is in need of some refreshing. I contemplated long and hard about which direction to go with her….(1) restore her with her original 327 / 210 hp engine and powerglide or (2) go...

    Hello All, My Camaro is a 1968 convertible 327 / 210 hp that my father bought new. It was affectionately known to our friends and family as “Lil’ Red”. I have very fond memories of family cruises to watch fireworks on the 4th of July, drive-in movies and trips to Sonic for cherry limeades...

    Part 1 I bought a convertible that needed a lot of sheet metal. I purchased a set of jig plans from First Generation Jigs. The plans were excellent. The jig itself was easy to build and really helped me rebuild the body. Some of the bracing is removable. For the parts of the jig brackets that...

    What is the best method for getting an F Body onto the jig? I am starting a 69 convertible project and will be building the body jig shortly that is referenced so many times. I have searched threads but I haven't found the definitive best way to place the body shell onto the jig. Thanks!! BTW -...

    Ok so for some reason I have a power top frame with manual springs. I have all the parts to convert it to power however when I did start the tear down I ran into the following. 1. The manual shoulder bolts are a different length than the power...so I ordered the correct bolts. So then I went to...
