What is "EO"?

Evening Orchid - this is a special paint car.

I thought the N65 space saver never made it into 67 Camaro production?  Odd they would list a specific mat for it, unless the Firebird managed to get it, and for some reason they also listed it under Camaro in the parts catalogs.

I wonder if that could be scanned and reproduced with a 3-D printer?  I was looking into having a missing fold-down rear seat, top trim piece, end cap reproduced this summer, but gave up. 

The Body By Fisher Service manual has pretty good details in the "Folding Top" section, so maybe check for it there.  I don't recall those on my 67 but it's undergoing restoration so can't check.

You could also look around eBay for something that might fit.  Here's an inexpensive one for later model GM, NFI.  You'd have to ask what the ID of the sleeve is:

Not sure if anyone has that reproduced, or what the hose OD is.  You may have to look at  using a neprene rubber hose insulation like Frost King.  The original material was probably similar to the  type on PS hose.

I've seen an H 2 6.

I think this one was discussed here in the past, but no shot of the trim tag to determine the build week.  I don't recall ever seeing a November or later without the emblems.

I'm wondering if there may have also been location differences between the SBC 3892657s and 3903352s.

Sorry can't help you on repros.  I restored my originals earlier this year.  I didn't see much recent discussion on the Team Camaro site either.

You might want to provide more details to get better assistance.  Repros or used originals?  If repro, any idea who the vendor was?  If original, did anyone try to clean them up or restore them?  What exactly is the symptoms of "don't work for crap"?

68-69 had a satin finish plating.  Here's an example, not sure if this is what you mean by top releases.  I've no idea if the hooks and knuckles had the same satin plating.  The mirror stem probably had the same finish to comply with the regulations, although the one linked below seems a bit shiny.  As we know, repro parts aren't always totally accurate.  If you don't know the full history on the car, a PO could have painted the parts.

This CRG report is a really good read.  Under the Fisher Body - Paint Shop Operations section it tells how the rear ballasts were suspended in the trunk and spatter painted before later installation.

The SS 350 on the grille emblem and gas cap were on early cars, and phased out when the big blocks were introduced.  Depending which steering wheel was ordered, you may or may not have the center steering wheel emblem.

If you are not matching numbers, the remanufactured ones are probably less than what you will pay for an 8338 core, and they should have some warranty.  Call them to confirm fit and ask who rebuilt it.  If concerned over heat, get a thermal wrap too.  I've seen rebuilt 8338s go for near $300, and cores well over $100 on the usual eBay, etc. if you decide to take that approach.

I assume you have a PG and need an under pan/inspection cover.  Some vendors list them as fitting SBC and BB, but my experience is many are unaware of the difference and what they sell is often for a 153-tooth flex plate.  You need the one listed for a 62-70 BB/168-tooth.  I got mine from Ecklers - their part number 166962.  Compared to a repro 153 tooth pan, it's overpriced IMO, but you know it fits.  Once an original pan is off the car, most don't know what it fits or the depth differences.  You'd need to confirm a used one came off a big block car.  Summit doesn't have a 168 cover, and JEGs has one listed as both 152 or 168 but bad reviews.  Good luck.
