Decoding/Numbers / Re: Transmission, Rear End and Trim tag
« on: August 21, 2006, 01:06:30 AM »
The ACC tags were pre-1964 vintage tags applied to 68s that were not warranted to be in compliance with FMVSS.  These included some export cars, as well as the like of Yenkos.   See the last sentence of the first paragraph below.

John may be able to answer specifics as to the desygn/why question, but until he replies, one can only suppose that the designers felt a need to supply a different mount for higher performance engines.  This is independent of the block casting.  If you swapped the brackets as well, you should be able to put a bracket/mount combo from a 302 or 350 onto a 327 block.

We did have a very unconfirmed report that the stripe was created for a Dr. Pepper promotion campaign.  Only hearsay, no backup.  Only mentioning this in case it rings a memory bell with someone.

Veteran and Full Member are both 3 stars.  Veteran's come from the previous forum.  Full Members require 100 posts on the new forum.

Newbie <50 (1 star)
Jr. Member is 50 (and 2 stars)
Sr. Member is 250 (and 4 stars)
Hero CRG Forum Member is 500 (and 5 stars)

CRG members/Admins/CRG Coordinator all have 5 stars

Nothing is intended to be offensive to anyone.  We can change the names and stars of any of this.  It's just a game anyway, a typical male way of trying to keep some type of score. ;)

General Discussion / Re: Camaro Clubs in England???

Not aware of any current UK clubs.  We've had contact with a number of UK f-body owners of various generations over the years, but they don't seem to be organized.  Unlike a few other countries - for example - Sweden (Sweden probably wouldn't have made my short list in a guess of countries with an organized f-body club, but a successful club is far more dependent on finding a few core individuals willing to commit a lot of time & energy to it, than location).  See

Kurt might have some info that would help you.  That he hasn't replied is a sign he's busy doing something. If he doesn't reply to this thread eventually send him a note. Rich

General Discussion / Re: XCO build numbers

IIRC, the only fully-built ones we've seen were SS models (perhaps Z28, but I can't recall one).  It was the more base models that were shipped in kits.

If you count Yutivo, Carcacas, and Belgium (the three we know about), I would guess a total of at least 1000, but probably no more than 2000 per year.

RC:  If you *know* that the tag had original paint on it 21 years ago, and this is the same tag, then you have a degree of comfort that you cannot expect us to have.  One anomaly is an anomaly, filed away as such.  Two anomalies raise additional questions.  Multiple anomalies lead to other thoughts. Since evaluation of a car can sometimes be taken personally, even when it isn't meant that way, I think we should take this off-line to better explain the concerns to you.  If you want to re-start the thread at that point, your call.  Thanks, Rich

100 to 1 would be even better... ;)

Pg 170, yep.

SS with no wheel options came with the dog dish caps in 68.

The cover in question is the RPO option "P01" cover as applied to the SS, and for 68 the RPO P01 cover was different than the P01 cover on non-SS.  The non-SS cover is what is on my car, as in

You would have gotten the covers in question if you ordered option P01.  If you don't have P01 on your order sheet, then the factory put dog-dish hub caps on the car, and the dealer put these full-wheel covers on it after it came off the truck.  And if he found some SS style wheel covers in the parts department, they may have grabbed a previous version, not realizing it was slightly different.

Makes us 67-68 owners quite happy, knowing that 69s will become even more common... ;)
