Thats one of my favorite configs of the early camaros. Although the Z/28 was the hardcore enthusiasts car, the 350, 4speed car with A/C was the sportsmans car, the driver....because it had power and air conditioning. Thats the car I would've bought....because I like A/C in the summer....and the rated HP of the Z/28 wasn't higher than the 350/295.

And it wasn't necessarily cheaper than a Z/28....the A/C option was around $400....not alot by todays terms....but with the base price of the car around $2700, thats a 15% zap for a buyer......easy decision now....but I would've bought AC over Z/28 back then.

There's a book... Chevrolet by the numbers.....
It will should you how to read the casting numbers and the date codes for all the "important" parts.....even the waterpump.

Those rally wheels are date coded too......so don't throw that front ugly one away....they are too hard to find.

Post a pic of the engine compartment...I'm dying to see it and the intake manifold....whats the casting number on that?

Your tires actually don't look too bad....I would focus more on cleaning....tires are last.

The car needs a deep cleaning.....clean the engine comparment with a degreaser and a toothbrush. And get hold of a buffer and rub the paint out with some 3M "perfect it" rubbing compound to remove all the oxidation from the paint. Then sand those rusted areas down to the metal and put some primer on em to prevent any further oxidation.

And cut those right angle tail pipes off...those look silly.

That's a pretty odd combination of options. Base car, Non-SS with 350, disc brakes, 4-sp and apparently A/C. Nice....

Don't forget the factory rear spoiler (I'm assuming, but the paint match looks good) and the hockey stripe.......

I've seen less for sale for $20K

I wonder what rear end is in the car......most likely a 10bolt 1 legger, but a posi would be cool and a 12 bolt would be fantastic)

Wasn't the LM1 you mention essentially a complete SS without the badges. As in, you order this motor, it has to come with multi-leaf springs, 12 bolt etc etc

Could be.....I've seen some weird things before.....best to count the bolts, read the code, and spin the rear tires.

But you're right, the car is basically a badgeless SS350.

Very Nice!
Dirty as a pig pen, but thats just dirt and oxi. degreaser and powerwasher!

Looks very original.........o baby o baby.

Don't throw anything away....especially the AC. Even that voltage regulator that was on the floor. If you are gonna drive it use octane booster.....

The trim tag is a little blurry bro.....maybe another try.

Cleaned up and polished (not restored)....thats an easy 18K-20K car. Mother's day is this weekend.


I can't believe you told that guy were you lived....now he'll be stalking every barn until he finds your mean green machine.


PS I'm dying to know some of the casting numbers....so I'll even give you one.
The number for the intake manifold is behind the carb and it should be 3927184....same as the SS, Pacecar and Corvette! Good Company right?

Nice project and as you well know you can go as far as you desire. I would do a complete rebuild from bumper to bumper. But that is me an old retired dude. Hope that you keep posting as you progress.
