I suggest you get in touch with Jerry. Also, have the current owner show you the second page (and subsequent, if any) which will tell you exactly what Jerry found when he did the inspection.

Jerry's contact information is on his WEB PAGE.

Nope. It was never superceded and was discontinued in July of 1974.

Although posted in 2014, you might want to check with the guy selling his on THIS THREAD anyway.

Does a 67,68 Big Block 170 distributor use the 360 vacuum advance? thanks

Yes, after April of 1966. Prior to April, 1966 it used the 1115355.

For future searches the full VIN is 124379N686100. I also edited the title to reflect the partial VIN and suffix code.

124378N463029 was on ebay back in February of 2016 and also on a Craigslist scam around that same time period. (The Craigslist scammer was using the pictures from the ebay auction.) In 2016 it was also being discussed on the TEAM CAMARO site. A Google search also shows it in other sites as well.

What do you need to know?


The lettering is orange, the 67 Pace car decals were blue.  Must be some local Canadian Pace car like an SCCA (or the Canadian equivalent), grand prix or some other race that had their own decals made.

Completely agree. That's why I said I thought it looked something like SFDC.


I'm stymied on what the word before Pace would be....



Seriously, kind of looks like SFDC?


And page 3...


Thought you might get a kick out of this.

(Sorry, but to post, I had to reduce the heck out of it, therefore lowering the resolution, but it's still readable.)

Pages 1 and 2...

They don't, and they're, well, I won't say trash, but they're not that good. What I did was I finally got my original AM/FM restored (approx $700.00), but I also installed a Custom Autosound hidden radio under the back seat. it comes with a wireless remote so it's undetectable. It's not a cheap system, but it does sound good. Unlike the original AM/FM mono!

You can read about it HERE, but I don't know if the Custom Autosound SRMS radio I got is still available or not. The link on ebay doesn't show the pictures anymore, but HERE'S A LINK to it on Amazon (currently unavailable).

I'm sure there are other "hidden radio" options, so it's something you might want to think about.

I'm always leery of ads that don't post pictures of the trim tag and engine pad. Do you know what the VIN is and do you have a picture of the trim tag?

Jorge, I split your thread into it's own. Also, is that the VIN? If so, you're missing a lot of numbers! Post a picture of the VIN, the Trim Tag and the engine pad and we might be able to help.

From what you're saying, it sounds like one speaker in the front and one speaker in the back might be my best option for decent sound in the car (and also an option that might have come from the factory).

It is, but you'll have to find the fader control (P/N 7304601), harness (P/N 7290858), wiring (P/N 2988134), rear speaker (P/N 7300614), grille (P/N 7296871) and mounting hardware. Those aren't easy to come by and are usually expensive when you DO find stuff that's working and not all hacked up.

As for "decent" sound, you'll never get that out of the factory setup!! It was crappy at best.

Also, if you're restoring the car for "judging", that radio won't pass. The 68 AM/FM had "AM" and "FM" lettering in the lens (See below).

First, that's a 67 AM/FM mono radio, not a 68 (The 68 was 7303241).

But IF you had a 68, the speaker (P/N 7298001) would have been located under the dash.

A rear speaker would have been installed if the car came with RPO U80, and there would have been 4 speakers (two speakers in the kick panels and an additional two in the rear deck) if the car had come with RPO U79 Stereo Multiplex.
