Originally it was thought to be rare, but as more data has been collected it is fairly common block. Certainly it doesn't add value over 010,618 or other four bolt configured blocks. This block has also been found in a few Z28's that I have inspected as well.

I found this site which has the Cyrkle hits including Camaro. Red Rubber Ball was a very popular song back then.

My 45 came with a sleeve and has a guy and a gal dancing and a circle between them with the following:


Swinging
Chevy
Circle

I will take a picture a little later.

I have the YH wheels on my car too.  I'd be curious to know what the interest is all about.  Are they anything special?
Joe

15x7 rally wheel, used on the '69 Z/28 from about January '69 on.

They were also used on Monte Carlo's in 1970. When purchasing verify year designation as well.

For anyone who is interested, I now have an MP3-CD file on the 1967 song called Camaro recorded by The Cyrkle.  To my knowledge the Columbia masters have never been released to the public in CD form anywhere but thanks to a close friend who works at the XM radio studios in Wash DC, I now have a clean file that was made from an original mint condition 45 out of my personal record collection.  He ran it through some software and it now sounds like an original master tape. 

If anyone is interested, I should be able to e-mail the file to you. 

Jerry

I have the original 45 on one side is Camaro by  "The Cyrkle" and on the other SS 396 by" Paul Revere and The Raiders"  It also states "Created Exclusively for Chevrolet Dealers"

William,
Thanks for your reply. So all Norwood built cars in June had 06A? Or what exactly do you mean? Thanks in advance

Yes all June Norwood cars had a trim tag build of 6A, although cars were actually built in the weeks following as well.

At this point Gary, what I have is only heresay and I do not want to start false rumors but I will say that I am currently working on a proposal to a very senior executive at GM about a different approach to finding possible information. I have never worked for GM in any way but I do have someone's ear.

I would like to point out that Chevrolet provides documentation for 1977 and newer cars see link attached. http://www.camaros.net/vis/

BTW I have use this service for my 81 Z. We have heard all sorts of reasons why the prior years haven't been released from lawsuits, floods and fires. The bottom line is if they existed they would have been released, the truth is the records have not existed for years.

There is no "issue with GM"; the documents simply don't exist.

I believe otherwise.

Believe as you will. I was there, and I know all three groups very well that were charged with the three separate internal searches chartered (and funded) by Jim Perkins (Chevrolet General Manager) for the 60's Chevrolet production records.

Based on the information I have found, I believe John Z. is correct...There are no Chevrolet records. Thinking otherwise is just wishful thinking.
384  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hershey AACA on: October 19, 2007, 07:26:23 PM
Was anyone else there? I talked to the owner of an excellant '67 red Z-28 on Sat. Pretty strange options, bench seat with fold down rear. I didn't take any pics, but there are several on AACA in the gallery.

I was there and spoke to the owner of the 67 Z/28, 68 and two 69's. The orig owner of the yellow 69 rs/z is a great guy. I was judging and then had to leave shortly after, but there were many outstanding cars. It is an amazing gathering of any type car from any period.
385  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Possible Yenko found in Michigan? on: October 03, 2007, 05:53:54 PM
All 69 camaro yenko's were sports car conversion cars 9737 as well as 9561(double copos). So all 69's yenko camaros had 140. In 68 most 427 converted cars were 9737 copo's as well, but not all. I believe 2-4 were not 9737copo's. Most copos ordered by other dealers were for the most part just 9561 copo's. Berger and Douglas and a few others who ordered the cars as yenko did as double copos.

I believe they are reproduction tires, because i don't believe that plant existed in 1969 or1979.
387  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct '69 L-78 front springs? on: September 14, 2007, 11:37:52 AM
I have used this vendor, and they have been great. I have used him on BB pace cars & coupes. I switched because eaton sent me incorrect springs three times for the same car. I can tell you it gets old changing springs. Since they couldn't provide the correct ones, I found this supplier and they have been perfect on the 5 cars I used them on. I am only speaking from my personal experience. 

SUSPENSION coil springs, 1934-2007, standard, custom made. Coil Spring Specialties LLC, PO Box G, 632 W Bertrand, St Mary's, KS 66536, 785-437-2025 or coilsprings.com
388  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Gas tank straps on the 67 on: September 09, 2007, 03:15:26 PM
Were the tank straps painted black or left galvanized? Also was the insulator between the strap and tank felt or rubber?  Huh

All the original cars I have inspected have had the straps painted black with no insulators under the strap. The felt insulators go on top of the tank.
389  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: decoding tires on: August 22, 2007, 09:34:29 PM
I have a 1969 Camaro pace car.  I am trying to find out if the original tires are on the car.  It has been garaged the entire time and tires are in great shape.  Anyone know if there is a book out there that tells how to decode the tires or does anyone know how to do that??  Here is the info on the tire itself:

Firestone  Super Wide Oval Sports
F70x14
CYLD F2K5049
White letters
Thanks for the help...

I believe it decodes as follow, but I will try to confirm it with some documentation I have, tomorrow.
CYLD = Plant
 F2K5= Mold Type #
 04= Week in year produced
   9= Year produced 1969 or 1979
390  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69 Horn Relay on: August 19, 2007, 09:15:26 PM
I did some more cleaning on my horn relay, and found numbers 889 stamped into the metal part. Is this a familiar part number? 03 build Norwood car. It does have the embosed cover with Delco Remy and Made in US on it.

I have seen a couple of 03A&B built cars with 862's, and had black plastic, although most seem to be white/clear plastic.

Thanks!
