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.

Now, that you mention it, I believe the Vette jars were more wedge-shaped on the back to fit the contour of the car.  JohnZ could probably tell you more, but I think they went with black in 68 because the white jars were visible through the Vette's side "gills".  My original point, however, was that GM did make black jars by 1968.  That's why I asked about a part #.  I'll still try to look it up for you when I get home.  And let me just add, I do know that Olds was using black jars by 68.  --Not trying to say yours is not an original --just trying to figure out how we can verify it...

GM did have some black washer jars in 68.  Not sure about Camaro, but have seen them for Corvette.  Does it have a part number on it anywhere?

OK, I'm starting to warm up to it... especially the interior and back end.
You might think you were behind a vette from behind...
I see the yellow bow tie...  Have they said anything about SS or Zs?
Is the blonde in the first picture standard or optional?

Looks to me like 3010176 (67-68 Camaro with P.G.; 8 cyl.)--which is a 2 core row radiator (since no a/c).
You can figure it out by looking at this:

Keep driving and keep voting.
It looks like most of us are occasional drivers.

AC45 & 45S were originally for 283 & 307 ( 2BC) in 68.
AC44 was originally for Camaro with 4BC (except 396).
AC44S (extended shield) was for 327 & 350 in Camaro (and Chevelle)

Richard,
Thanks for the link to Hot August Nights web site.  Now, that's what I call a cruise in!

Keep voting and sharing!

Another classic car driver has parked his ride due to the high price of gas! Shocked
My 68 Mustang buddy informed me he is parking his Mustang and buying a hybrid.  What's this world coming to?  Hydrogen?  Huh

But he got me thinking... How much do we drive our Camaros?
Please vote in the poll (for as many 1st Gen Camaros you own) and post a message on your classic driving habits!  Grin

As for me, I'm a weekend cruiser.  Haven't resorted to a hybrid during the week yet.  But I do drive a black on black sports car that gets 30+ mpg --as long as I go easy on the gears...

Let me hear from you...

Yep, "H" and "the EH style key with the rectangular/oval head but with CD grooving..."

Sorry, did not mean to "cut you off".  I was just picking up on your original post about "early style" and JohnZ's reply about NOS.
Actually, I was referring to the replacement keys that are NOT "early style".  (You really have to hunt for the "early style" in their online store.) They give this disclaimer in the online store for their "replacement keys": "Note: 1967-68 keys are later model design and will work but do not resemble the early model Briggs and Stratton keys. Genuine GM Replacements."
But you guys had already covered it, so I dropped it from the post. 
That does explain, however, why many of us are walking around with E/F keys to start our 68s. I was given two sets of keys for my 68 by the seller.  He said, "One set is the original."  But both are actually E/F replacements.
Thanks for reminding us of Rich's report.  It's interesting that keys changed that much in the late 60s.  Sign of the times...
And thanks for an enlightening thread! Grin

According to the Cherolet Motor Division, all Chevy 68 ignition and door lock keys were hexagon head, part # 7034680, and they cost you 12 cents plus tax.  Roll Eyes
