Rich,

In that case, I believe Steve may be on to something here. The above is a picture of MY 68 SS/RS Grille. NO chrome. I also removed both headlight door covers and they are 67 parts! (P/N 3898136 passenger side, and 3898135 driver side)

What he's theorizing is that at some point in the 68 model year (probably very late in the model year), Chevrolet discontinued the chrome application on the RS Grille and left it black. Steve's car is like this (as is mine), and both our cars have the 68 RS Grille without the chrome, and the 67 headlamp doors. I couldn't find any part number on the Grille though...

Both our cars are very late production (05D for me and 06A for Steve), so our question is, are there any other late 68 RS cars out there with the (pictured above) center Grille and 67 headlamp doors?

Rich,

Is there a date on the MP721A?

And Steve, what's the build date of your car? Mine's 05D but like I stated above, I no longer have the original grille.

OR DO I?Huh

Where's the P/N stamping on the grille? I'll go take a look...

In the meantime, is this a 67 or 68 Grille on my car??? I've always assumed that my car had been in a front end fender bender and the grille had been replaced with one from a 67 RS. Is this not the case???

Phil,

There's also a casting number on the face of the bezel (under the trim plate), but I don't know if the Camaro and Firebird use the same plate or not. The P/N is 7305954, but I don't think the casting number is the same. From some of the pictures I can make out the last 3 numbers of "474" (can't read the first 4 numbers).

mr396, yes, we are neighbors! We'll have to get together some time.

Looks like the Team Camaro forum is back up so HERE'S THE THREAD regarding the tinting of the lenses.

By the way, mr396, where are you in So Cal? We might be neighbors! I'm in Murrieta if you know where that is.

This was brought up a few years ago, and Bill Glowacki (CRG member) wrote that the Camaro Lens was tinted and the Firebird Lens was clear. He was referring to a 67 but I belive the 67 and 68 were the same tint. HERE'S THE THREAD regarding this.

I also did a search on Team Camaro and found a few other threads stating the same basic thing, with one regarding a 68. (I can't prove this right now because the forum is coming up "The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later"!!) However, I was always under the assumption that the Camaro was tinted and the Firebird clear, but since I've never actually seen one in person, I can't say for sure. The only thing I DO know is the P/N for the 68 Camaro AM/FM is 7303241 and the P/N for the 68 Firebird is 7305582.

Hopefully, someone can clearify this for us.

Phil,

I didn't even know they were repoping these things!! How does it look?

And by the way, I'M looking for one also, but don't want to have to sell my first born (and possibly my second born) to get one!!

Who's repopping them?

Phil,

You're referring to the tinting of the lens right? The Camaro lens is tinted and the Firebird is clear. Actually, the picture I posted doens't show the tinting very well. It's a bit darker than it looks. The flash washed it out a little...

Ed
2110  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Finding the Correct Underhood Lamp on: September 02, 2006, 09:01:42 PM
Phil,

Yes, all the same for 67. (Corvair, Camaro, Chevelle, etc...)

The same goes for 68 and 69, although all three years were different part numbers.

If you're looking, there's one on EBAY right now!!

How about this one?

Steve,

The CRG guys don't always read every thread. You might want to email them to get a better response.

Steve,

What kind of survey are you looking to do? I have a 68 SS/RS 396 that's (supposedly) in the database. At least I submitted the info many years ago...

If you're not interested in "original" pieces, RICK'S FIRST GENERATION, D&R CLASSIC (among others) sell repops of most of the pulleys that are close in appearance (with some being closer in appearance than others) to originals. Of course, it all depends on your needs, A/C -vs- NON-A/C, P.S. -vs- NON-P.S., A.I.R -vs- NON-A.I.R., etc...

Ed
2115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 68 RS center grille on: August 26, 2006, 03:20:24 PM
I'm not sure how that would be handled Steve. I can see where this could get messy depending on just what needed to be replaced. However, I'm sure things could be worked out...
