Originality / 1967 Fuel Line Clips
« on: April 25, 2022, 05:57:02 PM »
The 67 Assembly manual calls for a fold over clip on top of the frame rail by the heater box.  Has anyone with an original or survivor 67 seen this clip replaced with a double riveted clip like the two on the side of the frame rail? Seeing examples from LA cars and one Norwood car where the riveted double clip was used rather than the fold over clip. thanks

Originality / Late 68 model year changes
« on: March 17, 2022, 01:02:54 AM »
trying to find any other late 68 model year changes which may have occurred as assembly was getting ready for the 1969 model. Only items that come to mind are the change in front spoiler being bolted to the front valence vs. using the braces and the hood adjustment hole. Anything else come to mind? thanks, Brad

Originality / Two types of Peaked Trico Wiper Blades
« on: August 28, 2021, 10:45:35 PM »
Seeing 2 different styles of " Peaked" Trico wiper arms. First has 2 bends and comes to the typical peak or point that comes to mind. The other has 3 bends and comes to a flatter peak. This style is not the flat style replacement Trico wiper blade. These are on 1968 and 1969. Why the difference? Is it a production date issue ? thanks

Originality / 1969 Z21 Wheel Opening Moulding Bolts
« on: August 15, 2021, 10:55:31 PM »
The 1969 AIM for the RPO Z21 shows a change for the bolt ( screw assembly) mounting the moulding, inner fender, and fender together. The standard cars used a black bolt with floating washer, while the cars with the mouldings received a silver bolt with a serrated floating washer. When was the date change to the silver? Can't read the date in the AIM. thanks

Originality / AM antenna masts and wiper blades
« on: June 11, 2021, 03:03:57 PM »

Seeing two different types of original AM antenna masts. One with a groove in the tip and another with no groove. Does anyone know if this is due to two different manufacturers or was there a manufacturing transition?  Also, there seem to be two different designs of Trico wiper blades that hold the rubber refills. One style is peaked. The other is flat. With both being marked Trico Made in USA. Was this due to a transition. With one style being an early style and the other later. Or was the flat style strictly a replacement ? thanks

Originality / Minor Topic - Door Jamb Vent
« on: April 02, 2021, 11:33:07 PM »
Minor originality question. Is the door jamb vent held in place with a silver cad Phillips screw or a black finish Phillips ? thanks

Not quite a Camaro topic but I came across these and have never seen them before. 1969 Chevrolet vs Chrysler and vs Ford Product Comparisons. I have seen lots of automobilia but not these

Originality / Wiper Trico Blade Holders
« on: March 13, 2021, 08:47:17 PM »
I am seeing two styles of the Trico wiper blade holders - the part of the wiper that holds the rubber blade. One style is flat which is what I have on my 1968 and April build 1969. Just saw a late September 1969 original car and it had the point style or where the sides come to a crest like on a roof line. Which is the correct original style or is it another early vs late year change ? thanks

Originality / 660 Thermostat Housing - Neck vs. Outer Lip
« on: March 05, 2021, 08:01:29 PM »
Would anyone have a definitive answer as to why some 660 thermostats have the number marked on the outer lip while other housings have it on the neck. My 04C car has its original and it is on the outer lip. My 06A car is unknown as to originality but has the number on the neck. Thanks

Who makes the best conversion to electronic ignition? Looking for product that only has one wire coming out so the distributor doesn't show that it's been converted.  Thanks
