OK, but you did say, "just purchased a '67". 
It certainly sounds like a decent deal for under 13K.  The missing cowl tag may explain the price.  A 67 SS could easily go above 20K, even in poorer shape than you are describing.

Do note what Richard said about why you are buying the car and your sense of investment.

Again, make sure there is a clear title.  You can buy a new cowl tag for it.  But that will impact the value and originality of the car.  No doubt you can get your money out of it and more later on, especially if you find someone who is looking for a driver, not an original show car.

In the end, many of us are driving cars with non-matching numbers, etc., including myself.  That doesn't make cruising any less fun!  Go for it!  And do post us some pictures.

First things first, do you have a clear title on it?  Huh
Please tell us you didn't pay a fortune for it!  Shocked
List the VIN and any other numbers you can find.  Cool
Look at the answer to this question: "What are the best sources of information and data on my car?" on this site at http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml  Cool

A car without an original trim tag will always be questionable.  But if you're looking for a good driver and don't need to recoop a fortune for what you originally paid for it, then all this may work out fine.  Grin

All the way back to the original question:  I think, 5690846 for a 68... But it would be great if Ed or someone could verify.
1926  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Camaro deluxe steering horn shroud on: May 17, 2006, 08:56:16 AM
BTW, in 68 I know the deluxe wheel came in black, gold, red, turquoise, and blue.  The part # for a deluxe black one was 9747536.

Yep! Ya'll ought to know that we Tarheels (NC) know how to take care of our Chevys!
But, Dave, you should have told everyone that you find them at http://www.oldmusclecars.com/
1928  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Walnut or Rosewood?? on: May 16, 2006, 05:13:54 PM
Well, your 69 should be rosewood: "The interior simulated woodgrain pattern was changed from walnut (68) to rosewood (69)." from General Information CRG. 
Color should tell you --assuming you do not want to take it apart, like you said.  (If you cannot tell, ask anyone who knows anything about wood or get a color chart at the hardware store.  If you know what stains look like, it is easy to tell.)
As to what was most "desirable", that question has gone on between 68 and 69 owners ever since the first 69 came into the showroom... 
1929  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 68 Camaro deluxe steering horn shroud on: May 16, 2006, 04:52:55 PM
The original 68 deluxe steering wheels matched the rest of the interior.  Most of the repos for sale today do not look like the real 68 deluxe wheel.
The 69s were the ones with the wood accents.
Here are some pictures: (1 GM file, 2 ebay file, 3 mine, 4 69 ebay file)

I've been watching this thread with great interest...
Jeff, how about posting a picture of an unpainted metal power steering cap.  I'm not questioning that you have one.  But like John, I've just never seen one. 
In the last four years I've looked at literally hundreds of 60s Chevrolets --mostly Camaros-- including judging a few.  If some caps were originally unpainted, we need to know it.
1931  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Looking for a few parts on: May 14, 2006, 07:19:37 AM
If you are restoring and haven't already, get a copy of Colvin's Chevrolet by the Numbers, 1965 -1969.  http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml#InfoSources
From that you would know that there are multiple possibilities for a 4MV.  To get an exact # you also need to know things like transmission, A.I.R., special performance, etc.
Try Rick's for the air cleaner.  http://www.firstgen.com/.
1932  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: blacked out rear panel on: May 13, 2006, 04:38:52 PM
Problem is... you can find L6 cars with blacked out tailpans, today.

Going to shut this down soon.  Please vote and/or post.
1934  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: AIR pump pulley PN# (for '68 396) ??? on: May 11, 2006, 10:47:53 AM
The #3917234 that you got from the AIM agrees with the original 68 Camaro part # for 396, exc. Sp. H/Per., C.A.C.  Sorry I don't have the info. about the # 3925522.
1935  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black windshield washer jar? on: May 11, 2006, 08:48:16 AM
Looks like you need to post on a Firebird or Cutlass (442)  site.  It would make sense that a black jar made by another GM division could fit your bracket.  I think that bracket dates back at least to 62 for most Chevrolets. But I will tell you, Classic shows a white jar on their online Firebird site.  I did find one parts company, oldmusclecars.com, that does offer a black jar as "optional" for 67 Camaro.
Are you planning to show your car?
...When you stop to think about it, a black jar looks (or blends) "better", when you open up the hood.  Although, at a show, when you see that white jar filled to the top with blue washer fluid, it sure "looks original". 
BTW, the original part # for the washer jar is 3840083.
