Another winner Rich. Kurt deserves a round of applause for the great job he did, especially noting the huge amount of work involved. I always look forward to another CRG article. Keep up the good work.

No experience installing one, but I was at Classic Industries a few months ago and noticed there aren't any drain holes! I think that's probably going to be the major show stopper here.

It's been discussed several times, but no one has any idea on just WHY it's been left off the 67 specs. It's another one of those Camaro abnormalities we see so often!

For 67 the BP suffix was a 3.08 open 10 bolt. Not listed in most books (including Colvin's), but it has been verified as used on 67's.

Yes, going by the VIN the car's a 307. (I didn't see it up in your post. Sorry...)

Chris,

The 2.73 rear axle (BP 0410G1) is the giveaway. That axle was "standard" on the two L6 engines and the base V8 (307/200). Yours appears to be original to the car going by the date (April 10th, 1969), so unless it was one of the L6 engines, it would have to be the base V8.

What's your VIN? This will at least tell us if your car was a V8 or an L6.

I'll bet Tommy is now kicking himself for passing up an original 69 COPO for 10k!!!

Yes, PLEASE keep us informed of the progress of not only the restoration, but any luck in locating previous owners.

Another thought. The original dealer "may" still be around. you should check that out as well. It should be listed on the POP as well.

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.

2037  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: COPO? on: January 08, 2007, 01:23:53 PM
Post a picture of the plate and we'll tell you exactly what you have.

2038  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: tach number on: January 05, 2007, 10:33:28 AM
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

2039  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Was there a power seat option for first generation Camaros? on: January 05, 2007, 10:27:25 AM
Tom,

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.
