nice car!

You said that you wanted to do a 67' Z/28 clone?

The 67' Z's never has any badging saying "Z/28, that didn't appear until mid year 68' models and the earlier 68' had "302" fender badges

The only thing on the 67' were the "Z/28" stripes

They were only offered with manual trans and NO a/c was available

here are pics of my old 67' Z/28 RS that the new owner finished it

hope this helps

Jeff

you have a awesome car!

Glad to hear that you are making it your own!

one of the reasons that I sold my 67' Z RS, I couldn't make it my own, car was too rare, plus the fact that I was getting divorced then
It worked out though, the new owner finished the restoration and I kept one of the 68 projects that i had, and have been making it my own!

That is a super nice cruiser that I bet is a a pleasure to drive. I love the gold color combo as well because it has a nice vintage feel to it. Congrats, and good luck with it.

Nice, love the 1st. generation. My sister had one the same color back in the late 60's.
I would keep it original 327 and 2 bbl. But that's just me.
Enjoy!

think your right

thinking I might just add the vintage air a/c and leave it as all matching two brl runs great might just add the orig fin z/28 valve covers she has numerous leaks from sitting so long before restoration.

on the 17th will pull engine out reseal complete engine oil pan real seal new oil pump screen shaft timing chain waterpump alt and reseal intake along with fuel pump "BUTTON" IT UP then drive it ALOT

Did you have to drill holes to add those Z/28 badges? If not, I would remove them. They look off and as someone else has already mentioned, the 67 Z/28 did not receive badging.

You have a beautiful car and adding the stripes and various upgrades make it even more beautiful. This car can easily stand on its own without those Z/28 badges. I think you're on the right road by leaving it as it is with the original intake and 2 barrel setup.

Thanks for sharing your car. It really is a great example and you don't see many that have not been hacked up or converted to a big block.

I don't dig fake Z's that don't try and look real. Ditch the auto tranny -they never made them. Got a 12 bolt rear? Ditch the 327 sticker and the horrible Z28 badge from a 1969 Z

Might also consider removing the FoMoCo "CAUTION FAN" sticker. No GM EVER came with that sticker.

Pull the Z/28 emblems off. Trust us on this.

Such a cool car as it was originally. Save all the stock pieces that you pull off and have fun with driving the car. Keep the mods "bolt-on" and never cut anything. You will have a lot of fun with it and get the best return on your investment if you ever find yourself in an unfortunate selling situation.

Just an opinion.

in the shop for a reseal

pulled the engine last night due to a leaking ft seal replaced ft seal oil pan pump pump shaft water pump reseal intake ect.

was very surprised when we pulled the intake off as well as the oil pan with 54000 miles showing motor has never been out of this car, very very clean no sludge at all.

did see timing chain was a nylon teeth that had tons of cracks all around it due to shatter any min, so I put in a double roller I know overkill but what the heck never have to worry with it again.

tomorrow itsw put engine back in and fire her up will post engine pics tomorrow STAY TUNED

I can see "ME" written on the side of the block = 327/210HP Camaro Engine Suffix Code. This is also stamped into the top surface of the block in front of the passenger side cylinder head after the engine was finished. The yellow grease crayon was applied before the internal parts were installed. It told the worker what internals need to be used at a glance. This engine looks to be pretty unmolested.

-Mark.
