I will look at my L150010 vin plate to see if it has these types of rivets. I know it has never been off the car. I will get a picture and post it here.

If you can get the 67 front clip at a good price pick it up. The only difference between the 2 years is the reflectors added to the fenders in 1968. You can always cut them out. That is what I would do.

Wish I had the rear part so I could complete mine.

Like I said the trim tag was hard to read but it was a Canadian Camaro. Sounds like you have it information.

At the Pocatello Idaho the "Chrome in the Dome" car show I saw a 1967 Z28 numbers matching 26,000 original mile Camaro. Trim tag looked good but could not read the engine numbers.  I got a poor picture of the trim tag, 05? for month and E-E paint. The other numbers were 760-z, 2LGS, 4L and 5B.  I did not get to talk to the owner because he was not at his car. I really wanted to talk to him or her but I had to work today so i could not go back.  Also saw a 1966 L79 Nova and a 1969 Yenko. The Yenko had a X44 trim tag but big block heater core. Did not get to talk to any of the owners.

Looks like you have a 1968 Z28 Camaro just like mine. See "1968 Z28 on CRG. I have most of the same evidence and pictures that you posted. I plan on trying to save the evidence on the rear valance of the original stripes. I wish i knew how to post the link to the post. Good luck on your build. By the way those heads would work perfect for my 12E Z28.

I WAS running a SBC 400 30 over with twisted wedge heads, ross racing flat top pistons, Trick flow rods, Eagle crankshaft and a Iskendarian 292 .505 lift cam. Now I am going to build a nice street engine with the parts that I can save from dead the engine. Make it 40 over just to clean up any problems from the dropped valve. Find a bare set of heads to transfer the stuff off the dead heads and get a more mild cam and mild pistons and put back together. I do not need a racing engine. The engine came with the Nova and it was 19 years old so I am not that sad that it died. It was very strong and the 1966 Nova does not need much to flat out scream. It has a Turbo 400 and a Dana 40 posi that are still going strong. I know it is a long shot to find some rods but maybe I can help someone if they need some or some come my way because of this post.

I dropped a valve in my SBC 400 and bent a rod. Destroyed the Trick Flow twisted wedge aluminum heads. Not a good day. Looking for one or more 6 inch Trick Flow Ultralight full floater connecting rod. These were discontinued 17 years age so this is a long shot but it is a shame to have to replace all of them. If this is not the correct place for this please move it or delete it. Thank you.

i down loaded this to my phone. It works great and I now have it with me at all times. Thank you for the great link.

On my 1967 RS the steering wheel has a standard horn button not the RS. I know this is the way it came from the factory as my brother in law bought it new and it has never been worked on. All original numbers matching L30/M20 Camaro one repaint and new carpet and seat covers. Engine has never been rebuilt. The smog stuff has been removed if it ever had it.

Kurt will have to weight in on this one. I do remember reading about a original 1969 Z28 that had X11 on the trim tag. I bet Kurt has more information on it. This Camaro may be the "ONE".

I know that a lot of guys are looking for a real 1969 Z28. I saw one on KSL cars in Salt lake Utah. This is not mine and I have nothing to do with this Camaro but I just thought I would pass on the information for someone looking for a real Z28. The trim tags looks good but I am not an expert. If this is not the correct place for this information the please move it to where it should be. Weston
