Hey what's up everyone. Just wanted to say hello. I just became a member of the group. I feel like I have recently won the camaro lottery. To begin with this will be my third second gen camaro. My first was a 1972 standard camaro, my second was a 1970 true SS 396 (boy do I miss her.), and my newest project is a 1971 RS z28. Starting this car is what made me feel as if I won the camaro lottery. I just pulled the engine and tranny this weekend. I ran the numbers and found out that I have a true matching numbers RS Z28. Original everything with all options. It has the origainal engine, tranny, and rearend with a posi 4.10. I am the second owner of the car. It has never been in an accident and is all metal, no bondo. finding all this out just changed all my restoration plans. Have a good one everyone!!

Matching,

Welcome to the board.

Let me take the "devil's advocate" position. I have a '69 SS350 all numbers matching car. I want to tear into it so bad, but this "matching numbers" guilt trip is holding me back. I know it is my car, yadda yadda, but I just can't bring myself to rip into it to turn it into a real performance machine.

Freedom is a plain jane roller. Eff with it all you want, no guilt.

I might even sell the 69 SS350 to a purist. It doesn't need much to be a trailer queen. If I spy a clean 1gen (not a bondo buggy) with no pedigree I just might "trade down" to get out from under the guilt trip.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. You're right about the guilt Mikem79. The guilt is what changed my plan from building a fire breathing muscle machine into building a stock muscle car. My problem is that I have already built a 383 stroker for the car before I even bought it. It's a pretty mean 383 with port and polished bowtie phase II heads, ground 400 crank, forged pistons, the whole enchilada. What I think I am going to do is restore the car to stock and drop my 383 in there while I rebuild original engine. I'm hoping this will satisfy my need for horsepower. When the original engine is ready to drop in, it will be time to begin my next hotrod. Who really knows? My whole plan has been turned upside down. I went from building a hotrod to a restoration. Wow there goes the budget!!!!

Welcome from Pittsburgh, matching#s!
I can agree with MikeM79 and yourself. I found a similar find in a 77 with auto and 342 posi. Everything that's on the build sheet appears to be there. I only did the usual intake, carb and exhaust changes. I have all the parts I removed so far. I thought that was the next best thing. Granted its not your original motor, but my few mods like the 342's. This is about all I plan on doing mechanical wise. I bet that stroker will love those 410's, lucky dog! This is a great spot for gen-2 info.
