Restoration / Black out tail pan BB 67 IPC
« on: February 07, 2016, 06:04:37 PM »

I'm getting ready to paint my BB O-1 1967 Indy Pace Car and would like some input. The issue I have is that my car is a 396 and not the 350 but has the exact same RPO build as the pace cars sent to the Indy Zone for IMS commitment activities. Its not a commitment car because it doesn't fit the criteria being a 396 and was produced the 1st week of April. The NCRS says the car was delivered to the Indy Zone and it has the vin delivery stamp etc. Basically the TT reads exactly like the actual two pace cars would have if the were not a refit from 4P L78 cars but factory built the way they paced the race. I plan to black out the tail pan and I'm sure I will get into lots of lengthy conversations about the combo of identifiers once I start showing. I just thought I would bounce it off you guys first.

Thank you.

Restoration / 68 fender support shield?
« on: June 02, 2009, 05:14:42 PM »
I took this off a 68 when doing a restoration a few years back. It was attached to the driver side fender support brace at the lower mounting holes. It had the remains of a rubber skirt but now only has the staple. Does anyone know the application for this piece and if its even original to camaro? I can't find it in the AIM. I'd also be interested to know what the rubber skirt looked like?

Originality / No radio.... need ground straps?
« on: February 25, 2009, 03:36:43 AM »
A radio was not ordered with my 68 L78 so would the engine compartment still have radio ground straps? What about noise filters? I expect an "adda boy" for correctly wording my question :)

I've attached a couple shots of the radio plate and cardboard speaker hole cover for those who are interested. The sliver of black cloth tape shown with the radio plate is what was used to hold the cardboard speaker cover in place. Although it gave up holding years ago!

Originality / Bracket on X77 frame rail

I was going through some photos I shot of my X77 and was wondering what this bracket might have been used for? Its on both rear frame rails.

Restoration / 67 vs 68 engine harness route
« on: December 23, 2008, 07:22:57 PM »
Was their a direct cut off of the engine harness route i.e. behind the inner fender vs engine compartment side of inner fender?  The 67 ran behind the outer and inner fender and the 68 was connected to the inner fender by fasteners on the engine compartment side but was the change directly model year specific?

Restoration / rear wheel well drain plugs
« on: December 15, 2008, 02:12:14 PM »
OK, kind of a stupid question that I should know but I dont have another car to look at currently. The drain holes in the in the rear outer wheel openings ar plugged with plastic or rubber plugs? Same question for the rear drop off drain plug?

Does anybody know what this event was all about? It's on the windshield of my 69 Z28 and I was curious.

Originality / A.I.R on 4053 Holley
« on: November 24, 2008, 06:39:46 PM »
I've run out of vacum ports on the 68 L78 4053 to hook up the signal hose to the diverter valve. The A.I.R system is inactive but I need somewhere to run the hose?

Originality / Deep groove idler pulley
« on: November 19, 2008, 06:30:03 PM »
Did my 68 L78 originally come with a deep groove idler pulley from the short water pump to belt? Someone told me it was used on high performance big block camaros in 68. I've not seen one before and I've heard they are hard to come by?

Decoding/Numbers / Radiator decode
« on: November 19, 2008, 03:19:18 PM »
The radiator that came with my 69 Z28 has a right tank O D code with an H date. That would be a 68 SB code in August. The left side is coded I A not IH as it should be. Any idea what its from or should it be tossed in the scrap heap.

Originality / X77 cowl hood/spoiler
« on: October 28, 2008, 08:35:07 PM »
I'm about to start restoration on my X77 and was wondering if it was a good idea to have Jerry authenticate it before I start to pull it apart and strip the paint? I first thought that it wasn't necessary because its a NOM car but it does still have original paint and is spoiler, and cowl hood equiped and a desireable 720 72 72 Hugger combo. Would the original paint confirm those options and if so are they rare enough to add value to the car even if it's without the original DZ? Its a May built X77 without the D80 designation. It's also a non console tach & gauge car.....weird order.

Originality / Right hand mirror
« on: September 24, 2008, 03:42:21 PM »
What's the scoop on the first generation right hand exterior mirror application? I've seen several and have had a few on my cars as well but running through the factory RPO list they were only available as Dealer ad's. I see most of them on 69's and was wondering if many were added due to Fed regulations? I remember it being an issue from my youth where my parents had to add one to stay legal on their older cars.

Decoding/Numbers / 69 LOS L48 ID
« on: September 16, 2008, 09:32:06 PM »
I looked at this car over the weekend. It has a 388 cast block, BM 0813 axel, TH 350 and factory A/C. I couldn't see the partial at the rough casting as usual it was too difficult.  Should I exppect to find it there during this time period at LOS?

Originality / 68 L78 Distributor Cap
« on: August 24, 2008, 05:09:23 PM »
Anyone know if I should use a Delco dark brown cap with the copper contacts on my 68 L78?  I also have the regular black Delco cap if that was original?
