Yep. As I suspected. Like I said, that steering wheel emblem was the tip off.

I remember them being the clamp on type...

Yep. Those are the ones that'll really do a number on the springs! Especially the mono leaf springs.

Mike, that's a typical issue when cars were fitted with aftermarket traction bars back in the day. Especially the CHEAP (or non-Camaro) traction bars!! The "good" ones would also deform the springs, but much closer to the front bushings. Maybe an inch or two back. The REALLY good ones (like Lakewood) had the snubber directly under the bushings so they didn't deform the springs.

I haven't installed traction bars in AGES, so I don't know if the newer designs have improved, but I believe most of the newer style don't even use "snubbers".

Is there a list compiled that shows all the standard gear ratio's for each engine/trans combo??

Yes, it's called the Camaro Power Teams chart and it's in most of the dealer literature. It's also in the Camaro Reference book by John Hooper.

If it's a small block heater box, the rear end is original and the Muncie hole is original, then the car started life as either an LM1 (if the car was built before January 1st, 1969) or an SS 350. However, the 3.07 ratio was the optional "Economy" ratio, not the "Standard" ratio on both engines. The standard ratio for the 1969 LM1 and L48 with the Muncie M20 was the 3.31 non-posi.

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.

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