1969 Camaro, Standard Coupe 12437 built in Norwood Ohio the first week of November 1968. This is a early production vehicle (number 176350) with no X code. Car was painted RPO code 5913RR, Garnet red #52 with E code parchment white vinyl top and code 729, deluxe cloth & vinyl ivory Houndstooth interior. 
Some of the known RPO codes that are original and still on the car are as follows;
RPO D55 Console
RPO F41 special purpose suspension
RPO G31 special rear springs
RPO G80 positraction rear
RPO J52 power front disc
RPO M20 4 speed trans with Hurst shifter
RPO N40 power steering
RPO N44 quick ratio steering
RPO U16 Tachometer
RPO U17 special instrumentation
RPO U35 eletric clock
RPO ZQ8 economy axle ratio (3.07)
RPO Z87 custom interior

I can not verify that it is a true "SS" car all I can say is it has allot of the correct parts.
There are many parts that were replaced on the car over the years with incorrect replacements as the 
pictures show. There was some shoddy body work done but rust is at a minimum and body is solid. This is most likely originally a small block car (3/8 fuel line w/ no return and SB motor mount frame brackets)but was a original 4 speed with 5 leaf rear springs and 12 bolt axle. 
I do not have the correct engine for the car only a few correct dated parts of L48 300hp 350ci HA coded engine and a 1969 HB coded complete engine. The HB engine is casting number 3932388, a 4 bolt main with 2482 forged main caps, dated May 28 1969, deck stamp T0611HB. Crankshaft is Cast PN#3932440, cast June 2nd 1969, still standard/standard rod and main. Piston #3892673, cast flat top. Balancer #7704H, dated 19. Heads are 3947041's dated Feb & Apr 1969, 1.94/1.50 64cc, fresh from machine shop. Intake #3927184 dated June 2nd 1969. Distributor 1111488 dated May 22 1969. Exhaust manifolds LH 3932529 dated June 4 1969, RH 3932376 dated May 5 1969. Lower pulley 3932428CH, upper pulley 3932430DW. Rochester Quadrajet Number 7029202 DH.    

I have fully inspected the car and found no indicators of a accident, the car was purchased from central Texas several years ago and has been stored in climate controlled warehouse. I do not need or have to sell this car, I have ample storage, I am just not wanting to do a project right now. I have a clear Louisiana title in hand.
I do not want to trade, buyer is responsible for transportation from my location. Email with questions, I reserve the right to end auction early, vehicle is for sale locally.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible gives us a couple of looks

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.

2015 Chevy Tahoe gets Police Patrol Vehicle treatment

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 13:29:00 EST

That was fast. Mere days after showing a Police Concept based on the 2015 Tahoe at the SEMA Show, Chevrolet has announced that it will build a PPV model based on the SUV to do battle with the Ford Police Interceptor Utility (Explorer) and Dodge Durango Special Service.
You'll recall that the Tahoe has been police staple for several years, predating both the Explorer and Durango police variants, so the fact that the new model would spawn a police variant is hardly surprising. Like the civilian model, the 2015 PPV benefits from a more efficient 5.3-liter, direct-injection V8 that pumps out 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque. It also features more high-strength steel, offering better crash protection, on top of optional safety items like lane departure warning, forward collision alert and a Safety Alert Seat.
The press release is rather light on police-specific items, aside from the auxiliary battery, which keeps the myriad of electronics in a modern police car running even when the engine isn't. Lightbars, 17-inch steel wheels on Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires and a push bar round out the mods for the Tahoe PPV. The cabin features a revised center console and room for laptop and other equipment mounts.

Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Museum

Fri, 02 May 2014 14:16:00 EST

Callaway showed off its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum last week, giving the rampant enthusiasts of America's sports car a look at the roughly 620-horsepower, supercharged rocket.
Unlike the Corvette SC610 we showed you back in January, this Stingray packs a fair bit more oomph. Horsepower is only up ten ponies, but torque has jumped from 556 pound-feet to "at least" 600 pound-feet. Neither horsepower nor torque is official quite yet, although Callaway is expecting to know just what its creation can do once testing and validation is completed later this month.
The 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 now boasts a new, three-element intercooler, which Callaway claims only allowed the inlet air temperature to increase by ten degrees Fahrenheit during dyno runs. Previous designs saw a 35-degree-Fahrenheit jump. The exhaust system has also been fettled with, and now is even less restrictive.
