Why would RS change axle ratio? Added weight?

Correct. However, in 1969 they realized it really didn't make that much of a difference because there wasn't a ratio change for RS cars that year.

I wouldn't rule out an RS just on the basis of the axle.

True, if that axle isn't original to that car, but the date code of 08-12 indicates it might be. (2 months prior to the cars assembly, but still within the accepted range)

However, to verify, the casting date on the center section should be examined. If it's August of 1968, then it's probably original.

Did RS cars get 3.08 also for '67?

Yep. For 67 and 68, the LF7 and L30 (with Powerglide) received the 2.73 10 bolt axle unless the car also had the RS option. If it did, then it received the 3.08 10 bolt axle.

I'm curious, where did you find this information?

The "1968 Camaro Power Teams" chart.

The 3934224 antenna mast was used on several models in 69 and 70 (including a few trucks!)

The only difference was the cable, so if it really was removed from a 69 or 70 full size car, it will be the correct mast for the 69 Camaro.

No, the optional ratios were 2.56 (economy) or 3.55 (performance).

Maybe it's the lighting or the crappy picture, but the tip looks "tear drop" to me.

You can rule out the Rally Sport. For the base LF7 (327/210) and the optional L30 (327/275), the BP axle (2.73) came on non-RS cars. (RS cars got a 3.08.) And as memtioned before, you don't have the factory hole for the 4 speed, so the car came with a Powerglide automatic transmission.

So no way to know for sure which engine it originally came with, but the more common engine by a long shot was the base LF7 (124,870 vs 21,686 L30's), so that's probably what the car started life as.

Wrong tip.

Well, the original engine would make the car worth more, but since you don't have that, it really doesn't matter what you do, as long as it's what YOU want to do.

I personally LOVE the 327. I think it's probably the best designed engine Chevrolet ever came up with. A well built 327 is a screamer. It was available with horse power ratings from 210 (Camaro) to 375 (Corvette).

I've had several cars with 327's in them and you really can't beat it for power, reliability and even mileage if you keep your foot out of it!

41  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Trim tag on: January 24, 2014, 12:40:28 PM
Yes, the car came from the factory with the following:

2MG - Powerglide and console
3SK - Interior Decor Group and Exterior Molding group
5Y - Deluxe seat belts

By 173rd built, I'm assuming the VIN is 124377L100173 correct? If so, your car was probably built on the very first day of production at the Van Nuys plant.

Clutch/brake pedals are easy to replace so a prior owner probably changed the automatic pedals to manual pedals. The Turbo 400 cross memeber would be the same.

Can you post a picture of the tunnel cutout? (above AND below if possible)

What are the possibilities for me, as an foreign Camaro-owner, to get such information regarding my car that you all mention here?

If you have the VIN, you can get the info.

Thanks for the explaination Roy. To boil it all down, it's a major PIA!!

And I can guarantee that MY Camaro will be on one of the missing microfiche pages!!

(By the way, you should also have a request for my 69 Corvette sitting on your desk!)

Roy, I'm assuming this info is on microfiche like the GM of Canada shippers, but did GM give the microfiche sheets to the NCRS or do you have to contact someone at the Herritage Center for the info when you get a request?
