I don't recall seeing those used on cars fresh from the assembly plant, with top post batteries, back in the day.  But we'll see what our experts say.

4 loose trim tags for sale, 3x 1967 Camaros and 1x 1968 Firebird. All assembled at LOS.
67 Camaro Body numbers: LOS 1271 LOS 22466 LOS 18146
68 Firebird Body number: LOS 53
CL ad image:

In case the picture is ever lost, to further clarify these LOS tags, since in 67 they used similar body numbers for each of the four possible body/interior type combos and both need to be considered:

67 12437 LOS 18146  coupe standard interior
67 12437 LOS 1271  coupe standard interior
67 12437 LOS 22466  coupe standard interior
68 22637 LOS 53 Firebird

The production date listed on the NCRS reports - anyone know what that date is based on, and is it an actual date or approximate like the LOS Fisher Body scheduling code?

I seem to recall it's metal on metal where they screw together, and on a good day can be tight unless you can possibly get some type of lube on the threads.  If a PO stripped them, you may wind up destroying part of it when disassembling.  My best suggestion is to look at the AIM or repops to fully understand how it fits together, then have at it.  Make sure you are turning the piece up under the dash in the right direction, and you may have to go back and forth a lot until it frees up.

When turning the retainer sleeve up under the dash, ensure the "insides" or housing assembly that the knob assembly inserts into from the front side of the dash, isn't also turning.  If you have an AIM it's UPC 12, Sheet B6.  I believe it's a 14 gauge orange wire to the lighter.  Is the ground to the dash good?

Older thread, one of several that popped up when entering "original bumper" in the SEARCH box

Not the original owner, but my 11B LOS has black nylon that I would be surprised if not original.  Bought it unrestored back in the mid 1980s.

Heartbeat City sells repop gray spiral shocks, about $100 each.  No idea if the other vendors sell these as well.

Here's an old thread on rebuilding;topicseen#msg124778

These are both claimed survivor SS cars, so just shots of the rear.  The gold was a mid-year NOR, Jan-Mar time frame

The extract of the title had me thinking a little, 'body style: Tudor' - until I realised it meant '2-door'.

Maybe he had a Ford Model T on his mind, they used the Tudor term for two door sedans.  No idea if the intent was a play on words or what.  Or could just be a spell check error.

Pulled out the bottles I bought several years ago and the label reads Owens Group, LLC, d/b/a Palmetto Enterprises, 12 Lovalley Way, Taylors, SC 29687, 864-907-4751.  No website as far as I know.

FWIW, it's found in the 68 AIM under UPC C60, Sheet C9.  Not real obvious when you look at the C60 Contents page

Looking at the 67 AIM, UPC 0 Sheet C1 Miscellaneous Shipping List, it shows just one part number 7792010 Booklet-Fldg Top Instr.  Would they have been using older/other stock p/n 4228124 in the early cars, or that page of the AIM later revised?  But the booklet indicates the 1967 model year, so you wouldn't think there would be any old stock to use up first.  And I don't see anything indicated down in the bottom right revisions box.
