I thought that GM had one shown in there 67 parts accessories booklet that also showed dealer installed add on accessories.

You did, but only for the full size cars, Chevelle, Chevy II and Corvair models (see crappy pictures below!!)

The one that Ebay is the one that I was interested in, however only if it was a factory approved by GM part number.

As I stated above, you're not going to find a Chevrolet issued tow hitch for the 67-69 Camaro. And GM wasn't in the business of testing and approving aftermarket parts so the Valley Tow-Rite hitch on ebay is about the closest you're going to get. It's not GM, but it IS "period correct".

Would anybody know the part number for the GM accessory tow hitch for a 67 Camaro?

Even though there were publicity photos of the Camaro towing boats (see attached), trailers, etc... Chevrolet didn't recommend using the Camaro for towing so there wasn't an "official" part number, factory or dealer installed. Of course, that didn't mean the dealer couldn't have one installed using aftermarket kits (usually even kept in stock) if a potential buyer pressed hard enough, and I've seen several over the years.

SS/RS L48 from what I see in the pics provided.

I'm not sure I agree. Yet.

I'm not going to comment on what I believe the car is without better pictures and more information (i.e., no snow), but that steering wheel emblem (if original, and it appears it may be) is a dead giveaway!

Does anybody know why GM only put one horn on RS Convertables?

They didn't. ALL Camaros came with two horns. A high note and a low note. (A 3rd note horn was optional in 1967 and 1968, but only on the Coupe.)

If you only have one horn, the other's been removed. You'll need to look at the part number stamped in the horn itself to see which one you still have.

Some (not all) 3817173 balancers are date coded. Is yours?

Any idea what happened to the car itself?

Can you post a picture of the pad? That's a very early engine for a Z28. What's the VIN?

When in doubt, read the Chassis Service Manual!! In this case, start on page 1A-4 "AIR DISTRIBUTOR DUCT AND CORE - ALL VEHICLES (Fig 6)"

It has pictures and everything!!!

The finned balancer was discontinued sometime during the 1966 model year. It's possible (but not probable) that some VERY early 1967 engines may have had the finned balancer, but since the FIRST PRODUCTION Z28 didn't come out until early January, 1967 (Jon Mello's car), the chances are almost zero that there was one originally installed in a 302.

I never realized there were so many L48 cars built.  Are there any numbers known for how many came with the RS option also?

No, Chevrolet didn't keep records of combination of options. The only reason they kept records of options at all was to see if something was successful or not! If they sold a lot, they would bring it back the next year. If it didn't sell very many, it was history!

It looks like some kind of door panel retaining clip similar to THESE, but I don't think the Camaro used that exact kind of clip.

The 1967 350 (and ALL 350's for that matter) was a large journal. Same block as the 327 and 302, which were both small journal, but machined for the large journal crank. And as Doug said, 2 bolt mains. 4 bolt small blocks didn't start until 1969.

Yes axle does appear to be original. 99 percent sure the vent hose isnít.

I'm 100 percent sure!
