Kev68,

The 68 Assembly Manual under UPC N30/A1 clearly shows this deluxe wheel, including the difference in emblems (insignia) I mentioned above.  Also, the Oct. 1, 1967 revised P&A 34 lists your black deluxe steering wheel as:

6.51 Wheel Assembly, steering
68 Camaro w/del. wheel......9747536

The deluxe steering wheel also came in gold, red, turquoise and blue in 68. If your car has RPO Z23 or Z87, it came with that option.  If it doesn't, then it was one of the 9178 N30s ordered seperately in 68.

Thanks for the confirmation on the 68.
What we really need is someone with a 67 AIM to tell us what it says...

Put in an original style battery:

If you're worried about a judge counting off for POR 15, then you definitely don't need a yellow-top Wally battery or any other current style.  That's the first thing you would see...


OK, I stand corrected by John and Rich below...  But if you're going to have it judged, I do know that can make a difference...  But now that JohnZ has suggested a battery topper as being acceptable... Buy the new Delco and a topper for show, you'll still come out cheaper!

The 68 N30 wheel did have the appropriate insignia for the car as ordered.  Thus, your 68 RS/SS has an SS insignia.  The picture I posted is a 68 N30 off a standard coupe, so it has the bowtie.

Sure... I've seen dealers, etc. have the ability to help the process on a couple of ocassions.  They know the system.

Adz28,
Do you know how Florida DMV responds to inquiries?
1791  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: finding original owner on: January 10, 2007, 01:49:19 PM
Depends on the state... Sometimes that's more of a matter of the kinds of records the state kept and how they converted them over to computer.  Any of them that will are going to want proof of present ownership and probably a fee.  If you have a friend in the car business or law enforcement, you might want to "quietly" pursue that line of search.
1792  Site Comments / Discussion / Site Comments/Discussion / Resource buttons? on: January 10, 2007, 09:19:53 AM
Would it be possible to get the various resource buttons on the bottom of the forum pages?  I realize they are on the "newCRGforum" page, but that makes for several extra clicks when you're researching something....
1793  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: steering wheel on: January 10, 2007, 09:08:01 AM
Here's what a 68 N30 does look like...

If it doesn't have any cracks or bad scratches, you are lucky.  There are still some of them around, but most are cracked.  And for exactly the reason that Rich mentioned, they are gradually becoming rare.

Don,

The last couple of years at the AACA auto fair at Lowe's Motor Speedway near Charlotte, NC through the Road and Track booth, they have been gathering stories for an update of The Cobra In The Barn.  Tom Cotter lives in Davidson, NC.

After you finish your documentation, you really ought to submit your story!  I'll be talking to one of the AACA district officers soon.  I'll see if they have contact information.

Congratulations!  All of us will be taking an extra look at every used car lot when we drive by...  Grin

Have you looked here:

1796  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Tower Clamps on: January 08, 2007, 10:09:29 AM
Dave, thanks for the 69 AIM info.  I've already got my tower clamps, but that's good advice about how to install them.  One of JohnZ's posts made me aware of AMK.  Thanks, again.  Grin

Firstgen, Thanks! The 68 AIM does show spring clamps on the heater hoses.  Grin

Now, if I can get someone with a 67 AIM to respond, I'll have a complete answer (for Camaros, at least) to give to my friends next week....  Help!  Huh

1797  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: engine mount part numbers on: January 08, 2007, 09:58:27 AM
Looks like 67-68 302 engine mounting brackets...

Check 3955783 and see if the 7 is a 1 = 3955183...

72 P&A 30A says:

           0.029 BRACKET, engine mounting

67-68  All (302).....3955183 L.H.     2.00   engine mtg. to side member
67-68  All (302).....3980938 R.H.     2.00   engine mtg. to side member

Steve,
You're right.  Don't mistake my questions for disagreement.  I'm just trying to learn.
77-chev says above, his car is a Norwood 4th week of September, so your info is showroom fresh.
1799  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: tach number on: January 06, 2007, 05:42:24 PM
77-chev,
Hang in there!  There are a lot of us un-doing other folks car butchering out here.  In the long run, it's a noble deed... and fun!

Steve,
Thanks! By Oct. of 67 it reads like Ed posted above.  I'm still trying to fathom all the ins and outs of GM P&As.

Steve,
Which P&A did you take that from?
