Originality / Re: 68 Z alt bracket gt stamp

I no longer have an original front bracket, just the rear. The part above the slot is too fat (tall?) on your part.

I have seen the Flint #1 sticker on the front of the passenger side valve cover on '67s. I don't recall seeing it on a '68, but maybe others have.

That looks like an original GM bracket but not for a '67-'68 Z. I think it was used on some later 409 engines and possibly something else like a '65 396. Both have the GT stamps but the 409 one is thicker above the adjusting slot and the Z bracket is thinner up there and more equal to the thickness below the slot.

Some cool stuff there. Thank you for posting!

I'm with 1109.  An aluminum rod would indicate a drag racing intent rather than road racing, in my opinion.

Thanks for the info.  It's never too late to add to one of the threads here.

Last I knew they were in the $10k to $15K range. Could be slightly less or more depending on how complete the set-up is, dates of components, etc.

Thanks for posting these, Scott.  That first photo of the Grand Prix movie float is just incredible.  I love it.

That had not been posted previously so thank you for doing that now, Mike.

Looks like a miserable weekend.

Nice to see someone post those on youtube and thank you for linking them here.

Thanks for your efforts to document these cars, Scott.

Jerry MacNeish has a picture of his '69 Z towing his '69 L89 Chevelle to the drags back in the '70s.

We'd love to see that stuff if you can find it. Thanks!

Most Trans-Am cars run two U-bolts on each side and don't use the T-bolts.

That's exciting to hear, Brian.  We'd love to see progress pics if Tony was OK with that.
