Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Paint colors on the Alan Green Camaro
« on: December 13, 2018, 01:52:00 AM »
Jon, you beat me to it !  lot better than I have to offer !

Brian, the car is looking great !

As for the emblem and stripe configuration, I'm sure Jon will come up with something from his extensive files, the car appeared in a number of publications.

There is this, not the best, this is the pre production Z tested at Riverside in late '66. Jon is this stripe/emblem relationship representative of the production item ? (this image is from the Michael Lamm "The Great Camaro" book) it looks like there is a slight cut out on the stripe for the C.

Don't want to side track the thread, but have some questions regarding that first year.

Jon, I know this is probably already been covered here, did all '67 Zs come with stripes ? or was it a delete option ? I see some early photos with and with out ?

I also have images where there are no emblems, were they deleted to save a few ounces on race cars ?

I also have seen images of race cars with the bumble bee stripe on the nose, were some SS/RS cars converted to 302s due to a lack of availability of Z's that first year ? would there have been extra 302 engines able to be ordered, or did some build there own ?

Thanks, Mike

This is from Corvette News, volume 10, number 3. not seen this shot before. looks like it's at a race track, you can see cars on the hill behind. Jon probably has the answer.

General Discussion / '69 Camaro pre production prototypes & pilot cars ?

I posted this pic here before, but I don't think there was a answer. what is the story on this one ? SS with Z stripes and looks like a Z/28 emblem on the left front fender. a prototype, or pilot car ?

with the knowledge base here, some one should know the answer.

looks like a official GM photo.

Thanks Jon for that link to the article on Fisher from the Canadian source. Here's a photo of Craig Fisher (in truck) and Jerry Schwarz from the '68 Continental Divide Trans-Am. Also Craig is seen in the Firebird circa July '68.

Looking at the cars in the background, I would guess '80s  ?

Oldtimer, thanks for posting the TODCO item and the others, that is neat stuff !

The two links in your last post for the race Press Kit & the Penske Javelin item aren't working for me   :(

I looked through the thread, but I can't remember if I had posted this photo before of the Chaparral Camaros waiting in the rain at the Dallas race 1970.

In the first image in this repost of Jon from Jan. 23rd. 2012, that looks like a Iso Grifo (327 Chevy power) in the show room at the left of the Corvette. Note that the ad copy says, "other high performance vehicles"

Here's a colour chart for '64 Cadi's, they offered a green in "Fire Mist & Fire Frost" through '67 and beyond.

Google Cadi Colour charts for various years, I didn't want to post them all here.

Once again, colour reproduction is not the best, and I'm sure some of these charts are faded.
