Restoration / 1967 defrost duct mounting picture needed
« on: May 15, 2018, 12:20:34 PM »
I am working on a 67 rs/ss convertible that was gutted of all it's interior when it was converted to a drag car. I am in the process of gathering all of the missing interior pieces to properly bring it back to its original condition.  I recently got a good used defroster "Y" duct and a heater box.  I also bought a nice repo firewall insulation from Camaro Specialties.

I've had to make some repairs to the firewall, so I need drill some holes and test fit the defrost duct and heater box before paint.  I need to see what the lower bracket mounting looks like with the heater box out.  Is there supposed to be cutout in the firewall insulation ? Does it screw through the insulation ? etc.  The AIM for 67 is no help.  All the pictures I can find online are for a 69, which has the braccket screwed to the heater box and not the firewall.

thanks
Chris

Restoration / 1967 Muncie speedo cable hole question
« on: December 14, 2017, 07:07:56 PM »
I am wondering if someone can clear this up for me.  In 1967 if the car did not come with a Muncie transmission, would the 1" hole in the firewall at the transmission tunnel not be drilled by the factory ?  refer to picture

The reason why I am asking is that I have a 2LG 4P convertible dismantled to the bones and am trying to convince myself that it was a true RS/SS. It is missing the nose and the original running gear.  The muncie speedo cable hole was covered with a piece of metal riveted to the firewall, but the speedo cable was routed to the right of the column and there are holes for the speedo cable clamps at the center of the firewall (next the Muncie hole) and on the right side of  the transmission tunnel. I am thinking these holes would only be dimples if the car was an L30/M20 with a 327. I did read the L30/M20 article, but it wasn't clear about the holes.

thanks
Chris
