Lloyd -

I checked the '69 AIM for the rear axle, page 65.  It appears there was a production change to the clip - see note "17".    Unfortunately, the copy quality of the AIM is poor and I can't make out the date when the change happened.   I also checked the '68 AIM, but I couldn't quite make out the clip used but something definitely changed between '68 and '69 as the engineering drawings changed.

So it's very likely the clip on your rear axle is the original production clip which appears to be the same as the other translucent blue brake line clips.

Hans

Hans, Iím reasonably confident based on the evidence that my diff and the rear brake lines had never been apart or serviced and therefore assembly-line original. The blue dyed brake line clip used appears to be one of 4 variants posted here.  Is it possible the diff-specific clip (per yours) and standard in-line brake clips were interchangeably used? Would sure like to see more original examples.

Lloyd, here is mine. 12B Norwood SS.

John

Thanks for posting John, your clip appears to be another variant. Green rather than clear zinc or blue (per mine) and and open center. Hmmm.

Anyone else have a photo of an original diff clip to post? Would like to see a few more examples to fill out the thread now and for future reference.

if you want ones that are correct, heavy with the cording in them, you have to make them yourself. 
The rubber is available... from restoration supply.

Is restoration supply a company? Do you have any details? Thank you, Joe

Joe, I just placed an order (by telephone) so I can't vouch for the authenticity of the material however here is what you need:

Vendor: Restoration Specialties  http://stores.restorationspecialties.com/
Part #: MAT014-WS  (All Black Rubber; 1/16" Thick Rubber With Fibers Used On Splash Aprons, A-Arms & Wheel Wells; 43" Wide)

Great photos Hans, the stamping detail is interesting. This style is the most typical and possibly a standard. Many thanks for posting.

I painted mine. The rest of mine were either blue and  i think a small one on subframe was green. What finish should this be

Bill, my research continues however it seems the original finish for the style of clip on your car was either natural steel or clear (silver) zinc.

This is on my 03D. I dont remember changing it

Bill, definitely the more popular clip. I assume it was painted at some point as I've not come across examples where they were painted with on diff.

Lloyd,  This is the retainer / clip from my 12B VN Car.

Rick, thanks for posting, it appears very similar to mine, I'm beginning to believe these were frame mount brakeline clips that were used - on occasion.

This is a car Steve Shauger either has or had. It's an 02b car....Joe

I reviewed the linked thread however wasn't able to locate any photos of the brake line clip - where is it shown?

I'm trying to contact a friend that has a 01B car. Mine should match Hawks but I will check today or tomorrow. My 68 should look like yours but I will check that also. Both of my cars have stock exhaust so seeing them might be difficult.
Isn't JohnZ car from that date? Who has it now?....Joe

Joe, I believe JohnZ's car is a 2D build date however would certainly like to know which brake clip was installed.

Lloyd,
Your clip I have seen before on a couple of Camaros, but its not the normal clip used. The Heartbeat City clip is the correct style. Dave

Dave, thanks for your input. Its becoming clear the clip is not typical however I'd sure like to see photos of other diffs of the period that used it.

Thanks Dave, would appreciate a post-restoration "after" photo if you have the time and opportunity. From what I can see, the same (as 11) shouldered bold is used and the clip appears to be similar to the HBC repop with flared/eased edges.

Here is a sample I can offer;
1969 04C Z11 LOS Car

Jim

Thanks Jim, entirely different design that my example. Seems there is an air gap between the line and the clip, almost resembles a front brake hose clip.

I'm reassembling the 12 bolt differential from my 1969 2B build Norwood RS/Z and trying to confirm the correct rear cover brake hose clip and fastener. There is a CRG thread on a related topic but it doesn' specifically address the clip ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3123.msg20270#msg20270 ). After researching the Rear Axle Brake Line Clip PN 3956700 I can't locate a photo of a similar one to compare with and the typical (HBC) repop is different and doesn't spec a bolt or washer. I'm confident that neither the diff or rear brake line have previously been out of the car or worked on as the car was sidelined in the 70's with just 22K miles and has the tell-tale signs of not being messed with including the original single-crimp rear brake line etc. My brake line clip uses a non-captured washer and non-shouldered bolt (see photos). It also has the presence of blue dye typical of frame located brake line clamps. I would appreciate opinions on originality
