2041  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: tach number on: January 04, 2007, 07:00:45 PM
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?

2043  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original '69 12-bolt posi rear tag & plug on: January 01, 2007, 11:34:05 PM

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


2045  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What Does this starter belong on? on: January 01, 2007, 06:46:39 PM

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.

2046  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: SS Tail Lights on: December 31, 2006, 10:39:18 PM
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?

2047  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What Does this starter belong on? on: December 31, 2006, 07:44:21 PM

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!

2048  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hello on: December 31, 2006, 01:50:42 PM
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?

2049  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: What Does this starter belong on? on: December 31, 2006, 12:16:40 PM

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

2050  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: correct emblem locations for 67 RS trunk lid? on: December 30, 2006, 11:30:41 PM
There wasn't a "Rally Sport" emblem on the trunk lid. Only the "Chevrolet" and "Camaro" emblems. Is this what you're looking for?

2051  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hello on: December 30, 2006, 11:25:55 PM
You can't post a picture of a beauty like that without including some specifics!!

Is it yours? What engine's in it? Can I have it? Etc...

Give us the low down!

2052  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: SS Tail Lights on: December 30, 2006, 11:22:28 PM

The chrome strip on the lenses was found on cars with the Z21 (Style Trim Group) or the Z22 option (Rally Sport, which included the Z21 option) and wasn't associated with the SS option.

There were 102,740 cars built in 1969 with the Z21 option group and 37,773 cars with the Z22 Rally Sport option.

Only SS cars with one of the two above options would have the strip.

2053  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 camaro 283 on: December 30, 2006, 10:59:52 PM
Sorry Gary. 193 export models came with the 283 engine rated at 195HP.

MJ engines were mated to a powerglide (total count 121) and MD engines were mated to either a 3 speed or 4 speed manual transmission (total count 72).

These cars were all built a the Norwood plant and shipped to Bloomfield, Michigan, where they were disassembled for export. The cars were then reassembled at their destination plant.

There was ONE ON EBAY that just ended.

READ THIS. It should help...

From the auction:

This Z-28 has received a complete rotisserie restoration a few years ago

Unfortunately, it's been "messed with" so it's not a good candidate for the research Steve's doing. A lot of cars that get "restored" end up getting restored wrong because of misconceptions. (Remember the Bowtie mirror?)

How many folks would have looked at Steve's (or my) car and said: "You've got the wrong grille on there buddy. It's a 67." I would have said the same thing (and did) until this thread started and we discovered there are too many original cars out there with the black grille.

Of course, this grille could still be wrong, but without more folks chiming in, we'll never know "for sure". What we need are a lot more "original" cars dating in the 04A to 06D range to come forward.

I'm still not 100 percent convinced that the black grille was used after the 04A date, but I have to admit, with the information we have so far (replies to this thread, the strange indications in the parts manuals, etc...), I'm not 100 percent against the idea either.
