Rescued 66 conv barn find . orig 427/425 hp car no motor or trans .
Car sat in a barn for over 25 years all the while folks were picking the parts off it , engine and trans were sold for scrap !!! body is mostly there but did suffer damage to lh parking lamp panel and surround , poorly repaired doors back look pretty ok . Frame is NICE hardly any rust as well as the bird cage . Still has rear sway bar and tank has never been down although I cant see the tank sticker . Has the 6500 rpm redline tach and the 427 badges still on the fenders . Interior is still intact as well as soft top frame . I found part of orig lh skirt and it has the mounting holes for the TI ign box . The differential has been changed at some point as it has the light duty stub axles. over all a very good candidate for a complete rebuild . Please call 845 567 0500 for additional questions because I am sure I left things out . car will be sold with a bill of sale as the title was lost a long time ago .
Silly me I was not aware that 66 did not have tank stickers . I know enough of the tell tale signs for hp engine options but did not know of that little tidbit Please dont report me to the NCRS

2013 Detroit Auto Show
Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
