Originality / Re: 1967 L78 Fan/Clutch
« on: Today at 02:27:51 AM »
Bryon absolutely but 20 plus years ago there was skeptism. I remember in Colvin by the #'s book stated "possible some late 67 production cars could have received this block, but highly unlikely and unverified. The same could be said for the fan/clutch assembly that are in some late production L78's. The interesting thing is both L78's I reference have 456 gears!!! Yes 323 bocks were in production June of 67.... my block was cast F 18 7

I just spoke to the original owner of the Butternut Yellow L78, built the same week 7B, and he confirmed that he has the 5 rivet fan and Eaton clutch like mine, and that's how it was delivered new. Due to the limited space he could not get date information of the components. My understanding is this may have only occurred very late June & July. two other unique features our cars also came with 323 blocks which use in 67 was unverified back in 1996 when I purchased, and 840 head with the temp sender boss not drilled & tapped.

My 9B of 68 L34 survivor had identical 5/16 hose that James pictured with GM and box. I've attached a 3/8 hose from a 4C Z28 survivor. I don't see a logo and have only wiped with WD 40.

Originality / 1967 L78 Fan/Clutch

I just want to share some information regarding two 7B 67 L78 Camaros. Conventional wisdom has it that L78's received only the schwitzer clutch and fan 3871276 with large diameter mount. My car came with the 912239 fan (note 5 rivet per blade) dated F7 (June 67) and Eaton clutch date E29 H (May 29th 1967). I know of another survivor built same week configured identical. If anyone else has any example please post and Kurt consider updating the cooling report.

Without a doubt Chicks car should be featured. I was just volunteering to submit a write up on my car. I haven't even put together anything on the car my site, in members rides :).

I would expect the November of 69 built car to have the 6500 redline tach... There have been a few 6000 red 7000 high tachs found in July August September of 69 built cars if I am not mistaken.

James I have seen a few, and in fact my orange z (9A of 69 ) has a 600-7000 tach and is dated for the car.

On a somewhat related topic, were there any internal changes to the 302 when they changed from the 6-8 to 6.5-8 tach?  I'm thinking screw in studs and guideplates?  Did the 302 ever have screw in studs and guideplates?  I seem to read differing statements on this.

No and no.

I can tell you it was an L35, auto with endura bumper, It sold out of Peleshok Motors and first owner purchased it in May 1970.

I actually had a chance to buy the Mosport 69 Camaro Pace Car in the mid 90's. I even received a copy of a letter from the track & dealer confirming the cars authenticity as the pace car. The gentlemen who was selling it was from Canada but retired in FLa. He ended up giving/selling it to his son. It wasn't an L78 and think it was an L35. I'll look for any docs I have with information.

General Discussion / Re: Dealer number
« on: January 08, 2018, 08:10:35 PM »
I've had a couple of issues: my Pace Car had some obscure dealer (Max Meyers Motors)in IN listed. The original owners son recalled it being sold at McManus Chev, in Chicago. I later found a window sticker for a car built same time frame, same zone and dealer code and McManus was listed. Yes the microfiche was read incorrectly.

I've also had a report with zone and dealer code "but no further info available". I did a lot of research and found the dealer info and provided it to them and they update.

I found the service they provide excellent and very accommodating.
