I hope you're sitting down.

Congratulations. You have a COPO!!!

The "MN" code is 427/425 COPO 9561 4 speed (L72) Special High Performance and the "BE" rear end is Heavy Duty 4.10 Posi COPO.

Now why can't I find something like this???

You have to have a third party site host the file for you. I use PHOTOBUCKET and FREEPHOTOSERVER because they're free and I'm a cheapskate!!!

Post the picture up there and then post a link to it here.

Thanks for the Muncie info. Not mine but it IS from a Camaro, so maybe it's someone elses.

Your car was equiped with the following options:

742Z - Red Deluxe Bucket Seats
R2 - Bolero Red exterior with a black vinyl top
2LG - 4 Speed floor mounted Transmission with Center Console
3SL - Z23 (Deluxe) Interior and Z22 Rally Sport option
5Y - Custom Shoulder Belts

Thanks again for the numbers


I swapped the entire seat. Back in the 70's I didn't care about originality!

There are lots of power bucket seats out there that could probably work. If I were you, I'd take measurements of what I currently have and then go down to the wrecking yards and see what they have. You should be able to find something that will fit, even if it's just the mechanics.

I don't know about aftermarket. I haven't heard of anything.


No Power Seat option on the Camaro, but there was on the Firebird. I found one once at a wrecking yard many many moons ago and snagged it for my (now long gone) 68 RS. Basically a one wire hook-up to the fuse box. Worked great! One of the things Chevrolet should have offered on the Camaro.

Group 9.750 Tachometer Assy

67 Camaro w/console gauges (327), (1st design) - 6468244 (stamped 6468244)

15-41 ring and pinion is a 2.73 ratio and the PW verifies this as being a 2.73 10 bolt open rear end, assembled on October 6th, 1966. This is further verified by the casting number (3894859). The date on the Ring and Pinion of 9-66 (September, 1966) matches the stamped date (1006), so it's probably original to that housing. However, your 09D assembly and the October 6th axle dates don't really line up very well. However, if your car was started late in the week, it's possible you could have gotten an October 6th rear end. Here's the 1967 Calendar and you can see that the last day of 09D was either the 29th or 30th (depending on if they worked a Saturday that week), and October 6th is the next Friday, so it's possible, but it would still be hot as they were installing it!!!

Your car isn't an SS, so it's either a 327/210 (base engine) or a 327/275 (L30). The 68 Muncie or course isn't original to the car, but what's the numbers on it? (I'm missing mine!!)

Check your Trim Tag and post the numbers. We should be able to narrow it down for you.

I'm surprised that none of the 67 owners haven't chimed in here. I would give you the info you need, but I have a 68.

Anyone with a 67 out there?

That's the 65-67 tag. The 68-69 was 3931171.

Would not be on all Z21-optioned cars.


Which Z21 cars didn't get this? The reference material I have shows that the Z21 option came with:

Fender Striping
Bright Accents on simulated rear fender louvers
Front and rear wheel opening moldings
Black body sill
Rear panel emblem
Bright Taillight accents

Sport Coupe also included Bright roof drip molding

That's a 1969 Chevrolet, Nova, Acadian, Chevelle, Camaro and Canada Passenger car distributor, all with the 350/300 and manual transmission. That one was built on January 28th, 1969. Depending on the date of your engine, it may be the original to your car.

As for rebuilding it, do you just want it "rebuilt" or do you want it for 'show"? If you just want it "rebuilt", you can do it yourself, or check the phonebook for a local rebuilder. Most allow "walk-in" work.

If you want it restored as "show" quality, there are several guys that can do this, with Jerry MacNeish at CAMARO HIGH PERFORMANCE being one of the best.

I don't think so Steve. There are books that show the options, but I don't know of one that shows them in a "Z21" or "Z22" collage. That would be a nice page for reference. To show exactly what you got (pictorially) with each of the main option groups. Z21 would be one set of pictures and Z22 another. you could even have pictures for the interior groups, Z87 and Z23.

Anyone with lots of pictures willing to group them into pictorial collages?

Actually, that "number" belongs to a 69 Pontiac, but because rebuilders commonly change housings, it's found its way to your 69 SS 350. Remember, they could care less about date codes and casting/stamped numbers, so you'll find starters on Chevrolet cars with housings from Caddys, Buicks, Olds, Pontiacs, Trucks, etc... They all fit!

Nice. A very clean car.

Any way to contact the guy you got it from to see if he still has the original engine? It would be a good idea to get it if possible. Camaro's are worth more if they have the "born with" components. Even if they're not installed.

By the way, "Miss Rolla"? I'm assuming that's the name of a town, but where is it?

That's a 1969 Pontiac starter built on November 20th, 1968.
