Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 Rally Wheels
« on: January 25, 2008, 03:24:04 AM »
The XB is not a 1967 wheel and was found on 1968 and 1969 Chevelles and is a disc brake wheel. Sometime in In 1969 they were replaced by the YW wheel.

To be technically correct for your Camaro you should have DG or DA coded rally wheels. In 1967 the only way to get a rally wheel is if you had disc brakes. If you had drum brakes you got the solid wheel with hubcaps. Full or dog dish style.

Although you and the other gentleman have the same coded rally wheels they are not correct for the Camaro. As long as they work and you are not having the car judged for 100% correctness I would leave them on the car. Trying to find a complete set of DA or DG wheels could take you a while and be costly.

Originality / Re: New Chrome Bumpers vs Originals?

When I did my 67 RS I thought I could get away with repro's. I was wrong because I am one of those anal types Jerry is referring too. Just knowing I had reproductions on my car was eating at me to no end. So off I went and got original GM's rechromed. Yeah it was expensive, around $700-800 for the pair but I do feel better.

The repro RS gas cap was bothering me as well but I finally found an NOS cap to replace it. Yep, wasn't cheap either.

Restoration / Re: 67 rs headligts wiring

Check the 4 limit switches on the core support. Make sure the diode is good. That is the brown wire from the ignition switch to headlight switch. Also the ignition must be ON for the doors to close.

Buy an RS wiring diagram. It helps.

My 67 RS and 70 Z/28 have the Rosette rivets. The 67 are in the door jamb of course and can be seen. The 70 rivets are installed unside down.

I keep forgetting there were plain old COPO's as well. I just got done looking at 2 COPO's, one Yenko, one COPO and to tell you the truth I thought both had the 120 speedo's. I know both didn't have ralley's. I will go back and look at them again this week.

Not all Yenkos had the 140 speedo. Must order COPO 9737 to get the 140 speedo along with ralley wheels and larger sway bar.

Things are added and changed over 40 years so you must have a knowledgeable individual look it over.

I know we don't want to give the "bad guys" any help, so I won't ask to post them here... But if anyone has some good, clear pictures of original trim tags --not sanded, not repainted-- would you email them to me?  I'd appreciate the help!

Ok, I have to ask.  Why?

Ok, heres my opinion.

You have the car, you have a VIN and in my opinion you have another very important document, the POP and they all match. If it was my car I wouldn't add a repop trim tag. I don't believe it's needed.

General Discussion / Re: 67 standard to RS front conversion.
« on: March 15, 2007, 12:42:02 AM »
In my opinion I would just buy the reproduction lower valance. It's not that expensive and is easy to change. You'll probably be repainting anyways so why not just change out the valance and save the hassle of measuring, taping cutting etc...

Go for it.

Also to make the RS conversion complete you need to put the backup lights in the lower tailpanel, change the taillight wiring to an RS harness, cut the holes to run the backup lights and change out the tail light lenses.

Don't forget the 6 piece RS trim.

Are you sure you are not referring to the date codes stamped in the sheetmetal? I don't think the partial VIN is stamped in all those places.
In the places you mentioned I have date stamps for the sheetmetal.

I saw the car also. As I recall it was a LA car but had a restamped engine and they put a N on the engine vin stamping as if it was a Norwood car

And that is what I meant when I said the stamp wasn't correct.

Car needed to be done correctly.

I have pictures of the car with a black steering wheel and column and other pictures with a red wheel and column. Also have pictures of the car with no pin stripes. They must have painted the wheel and added the pin stripes before the the auction. Also the cheesy aftermarket hood insultation with incorrect clips just doesn't do the car justice.

As Jerry pointed out there are a lot of little things wrong with the car.  I also heard the stamp on the pad wasn't quite correct so to speak.

Very poor and incorrect restoration for a somewhat rare Camaro. To bad.

General Discussion / 1967 Camaro LA VIN number 16 Body #1
« on: January 27, 2007, 03:55:33 PM »
Anybody care to comment on the 1967 LA built Camaro that sold at Barrett Jackson for $69,000??
Lowest VIN known to exist with body number 1.

Here is the link to the auction. http://www.barrett-jackson.com/carlist/cardetails.asp?In_AuctionID=221&In_LotNumber=1029

It seems there a few issues with the car that are not quite as correct as they claimed.
