OK, thanks.

Is there a list compiled that shows all the standard gear ratio's for each engine/trans combo??
I was looking for one but never found one.

L35 (396/325) with 3 or 4 speed.
Curious... Where did you find that info?

Also, I don't think my Camaro would have had a BBC because of the heater core in/out location.

Where does the speedo cable come out of the firewall? If it comes out under the fuse box area it is a lower performance model like a 307/200hp Higher performance model muncies, come out to the side of the throttle lever (Left side looking at the firewall, right side of the car)
It comes out to the side of the throttle lever.

I've been trying to figure out the possible engine/trans combos that my 69 may have been built with...
the car has the original rearend (Axle code: BR 1206G1, Line2: E, Casting: 3894860NF) Read: 12-Bolt Posi 3.07
But the engine/trans are non-original.
And I know it is was originally a manual transmission car(clutch/brake pedals).

So, assuming the 3.07 gear ratio was standard and not an option...
What engine/trans combos would have been possible?

Just curious; saw an ad for
Apparently they make custom reproduction USA State License Plates.
Anyway, I'm wondering how good the quality is.

Also, It's strange that their Texas plates are the "euro" style?!?
My Camaro is a Texas car, but I wouldn't want that style plate on it.

Yeah... I've seen that done before. It looks ridiculous.

If you're not worried about looking original...
I'm running Bilstein's on all four corners and I love the ride.

My first Camaro was a 1974 burgundy Sport Coupe with a 3-speed manual.
In 1977 I ordered a new black Sport Coupe with a 350, 4-speed, and positraction,
which I owned for 30 years before selling to buy my dream car (a rust-free 1969 Camaro).

Nice. Looks like a very reasonable price... assuming that it's actually as nice as the pic's.

I got my Spectra (or Spectre?) from for about $100.
Well packaged, no damage.
