67 Z's were very unassuming.

Like a dog that doesn't bark before it bites :)

67 RS Camaro ( I wonder if it's a real Z ? a lot of people added the emblems) at Duke's Italian,  any one know where that might

 have been ? I would say it's the late 70's- '80s.

Considering 67 Zs only had 302 emblems on the fenders, it's definitely not a stock emblem from the factory. Whether it was a Z28 and he installed 68 Z28 emblems on it, or just pretending it's a Z is anybody's guess.

1967 Z/28s had no emblems. 1968 used 302 emblems early. In about March 68 Z/28 emblems were used.....Joe

There was also a thick dense foam seal (3 pieces) between the radiator and core support (2 up top and 1 across the bottom IIRC). Iíve only witnessed it on my old 69 and when restoring the 1st pacer of my fathers we used them from my car on his.  Idk if I have seen them in repo form but Iíve also not looked recently.  That is whatís being called out as #2 in the AIM.  #1 is the top seal for the core support and hood.


I bought the filler foam from e-bay. The guy cuts it from a big sheet. Don't remember the seller....Joe

I was thinking on my 68 Z/28 I had to put it on the crank 1st. Then the alt & the w/p pulley last, from the back side....Joe

You can't use the butyl. He had to use what they use on glass for newer cars so he could build it up so the height is correct & the moldings look correct. I don't know the name of the product. It came in a large caulking tube....Joe

I provided them with what I needed for etching & it's looks very good. The glass needed to be set differently because of the thickness. The glass isn't wavey like some I've seen. Overall, I'm happy with it but decided to leave the rest of my glass alone. I lost a few points at MCACN because of my original glass....Joe

I don't have any in my parts but have compared them over the years. When I'm at swap meet, I can see the larger hole before I even get close to the wheel. YH isn't the only wheel with different hole sizes but the k-1-0 do have smaller holes...Joe

Shouldn't a January 1969 car have a tachometer as required equipment with Z28 RPO?

No. Not till April 1969 if I remember correctly.....Joe

Those wheels could very likely be from an early 1970 Monte Carlo as their rallye wheels were also 'YH' code.   THere probably were lots more '70 MC being built at that time than '69 Z28s...

Monte Carlo wheels have smaller different shaped vent holes. Monte wheels are mostly dated K-1-0....Joe

I can't see the repair cost greater than the cost of replacing AD or YH wheels. Those 2 wheel codes seem to go through the roof....Joe

Well, I am looking at that speedo gear number and it says it is for an automatic? Does it matter?... Danny

Depends on what part of the catalog you're looking at. Here's the 4 speed section....Joe

We have speedometer calibration shops here. I would think you would also. Not really knowing how the speedometer works, could the problem be there?...Joe
