Vince, if you contact Rich over on Yenko (his profile name is Enoch) he finds and sells a ton of OE hardware for first gen Camaros. He may be able to answer your question while looking at a complete set for the application you are talking about. Great guy, been very helpful to me. If you order a set from him, if he has it, may take some time to get to you if he restores the set for you. Just FYI. Thanks

If you PM me, I can give you his phone number directly to call or text him too. Thanks

Here are the pics I promised. The frame guide bar looks to have a finish on it, not paint. But I cannot vouch for the authenticity of this piece as it's not off a "survivor" car. But looks a lot like the same finish that Mike was talking about. Thanks

Mike, thank you for all the detail on the pathway and hardware for the rear speaker. I couldn't find that detail anywhere I looked. This is extremely helpful, appreciate all the time and effort you put in to adding to this topic. Much appreciated, answered every question I had.

I'll take the right sill plate molding off to look under and see if anything is securing the wire. The speaker wire you have has the connector on the radio side?


Mike, yes that is correct.

Thank you for the reply. I am in the process of gathering the different hardware pieces to install mine as well. I've gotten the wire portion, and speakers and grille with bolts. So a detail of how they ran would be very helpful for me, and maybe some in the future. I've seen many posts with others asking this question, but no answer. But also, what the different wire holding clips looked like (i.e. the ones that were used for the wire on the passenger side floor and the ones that are used in the truck for carrying the wire). I've seen so many different repop versions I don't know which is even close. Thanks so much.

Hey everyone, sorry to repost such an old post but when I typed in my search words this was the only one that came up. I was looking for pictures of the wiring route, and especially the types of clips used, for running the rear speaker set up. I am going to install rear speaker in my 68, but wanted to try and duplicate as close as possible what it looked like on original rear speaker cars. Any help with info and pics appreciated. Or if this has been discussed already, a link to the forum topic. Thanks

I'll check this weekend when I'm up working on my car, and try to get a closer pic for the thread.

Just to add to the conversation, here's one I recently bought on ebay for my car. It looks just like the picture, and the finish. Thanks

Hadn't gotten a response and continued to dig through pics, posts, and those being sold and just for reference if someone is seeking this info in the future, the backing plates on the front were plated for disc brakes. But drum were black backing plates. Thanks

I was a bit confused about the post as I was searching out the color of the drums on a drum brake car, so some clarification please. From what I understand after reading; the drums are to be painted black front and back(mine is a 68), but the front backing plates are plated where as the rear backing plates are black along with the axle assembly? Thanks

He does have two available. One is in storage, the painted black one, and then the one chrome one. I talked to him a bit about it as I'm really wanting to find a 68 chrome lid in good shape so I can rechrome for my car. But he says the chrome lid he has isn't salvageable to rechrome, and I don't have the experience to tell if the condition it's in is something that can be saved. Bummer......

My car is a stick so I don't need a whole unit, just a good condition lid, so still looking. James, the one you have would be perfect, but I just couldn't utilize the base. But anyway, I chatted with him and that's the scoop. Nice guy, has a very nice looking 67.

I second that. Had a set done by them as well, very nicely done and very conscientious about quality.

Someone awhile back actually paid $50 for a piece of ORIGINAL scrap metal from the cutout off a 68 Camaro. The circle piece was about the size of baseball. If I could part out a Camaro for $50 for every square couple inches, maybe that should be my retirement plan.

Says this is for Standard or RS, and there's a link to the other side extension if that's what you are seeking. If you're wanting NOS or original, at least HBC gives you the parts #s too. Thanks

As stated in the ebay post, no vin# so not sure how to match up to the correct car. But I guess if you are seeking a date correct 350 for your SS this may do. Thanks
