That's right.  Sorry, Bob, when you said your car was an SS 350, I assumed you'd know to use that button (from out of the SS buttons available).  The Camaro promo I listed is a deluxe wheel, which did just have the SS.  I should have been a little more specific.

I've talked with those guys several times.  They seem to be "straight up".

2013  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Missing Cowl Tag for 67 Convertible on: June 02, 2006, 08:07:35 AM
Start by researching this site:

http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml  --especially 9. Spources and 10. History

http://www.camaros.org/options.shtml#RPOSpreadsheet

Without the cowl tag it is an uphill battle.  81 may seem like a long time ago for you, but I can assure you there were great looking clones in the 70s.  You need to find what other numbers you can.  Start with [from General Info. sources] Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9.  Post what you find in Decoding.

In any case, you have the potential there for a great car.  Good luck and post what you find.

BTW, take a look at Ed,s post about sources in this thread: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=40.msg250#msg250

...Not exactly the same discussion, but before you start taking the doors apart take a look at this and the previous one it refers to.

2016  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: '68 mutt on: May 27, 2006, 08:58:52 PM
Lots of mutts turn out to be great drivers.  Got one myself.

And I quote (from General Information):

"Critical printed references that the CRG recommends that you investigate include the following:
Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9
This is the "bible" of major vehicle components. Separate chapters are included for each of: engine, crankshaft, head, rod, piston, carburetor, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, water pump, distributor, camshaft, alternator, transmission, rear axle/differential, wheels, and Rochester fuel injection. This has had various printings, each with slightly updated and/or corrected information. As of August 1998 the latest printing of this volume was the 1997 4th printing - look at the rear of the book to find a printing difference summary. The major limitation of this work is that it only covers V-8 engined models, though certain components are also applicable to vehicles with L-6 engines.
Chevrolet Camaro Assembly Manual (for your year of interest)
Available as a reprint from the major Camaro parts suppliers. Loose-leaf versions are often preferred for insertion in a three-ring binder."

But now I understand why you asked about the mythical 327 SS in your first post.
2017  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 LM1 article on: May 27, 2006, 03:21:45 PM
Great article! Thanks Kurt!
Some of us were just looking for LM1 info. a while back!

Kevin, Good for you!  You're in position to do what is best... and right...
2019  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: need help before buying (cowl Tag info) on: May 25, 2006, 05:07:44 PM
Sprint1004,
Tell us something about the car... what kind of shape is it in..?  what's the asking price...?  Huh
Joe and Dave decoded the tag for you, but if you are really looking for a 69 take a look here :http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#CowlTag 
and here: http://www.camaros.org/diffs69.shtml
snd here: http://www.camaros.org/geninfo.shtml
If you are new to this, you want as much info. in hand as you can get when you are out looking!
Good luck!  And seriously, share info, about the car...  Grin Grin Grin

And whoops!  Roll Eyes  If you share info. beyond the numbers, we really ought to take that to General Discussion.
2020  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: ...your opinion??? ...I have POP, ...car is for sale elsewhere... on: May 25, 2006, 11:43:55 AM
I see your dilemma!  And on initial reaction, I would say "Surprise the new owner".

But my second and third thoughts are based on some questions:
As the car is being offered now, is it a reasonable price? 
Do you know something about this dealer that makes you wary?  (Yes, I know even the nicest dealer would increase the price on a documented car!)
Once the car is sold, do you think (or have some way of knowing) the dealer will reveal the buyer?  (If you ask the dealer now, he would be a fool to not ask "WHY?")
Since you have such information, is your ultimate responsibilty not to make sure that the information does not get lost?

Again, remembering what John said...
The October 1967 P&A says, "62-68 Chevy, Camaro, Chevelle... CAP ASSY., oil fliter (tube guage)... 5690846". It makes no mention of 7803820. And that's not a misprint. It does say "filter" for 5690846.
2022  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Ethanol in the tank on: May 22, 2006, 09:40:40 PM
Golden Eagle's "STA-BIL" is only one of several gas stabilizers you can and should use --if any gasoline powered motor is going to sit for a long period of time.  Ethanol or not, gasoline can eventually "break down".  If you do drive it once a month for several gallons, you are probably OK. 
If you are that concerned about your tank (I have seen tanks that sat for a long period of time that looked great on the outside but were all rust and sludge on the inside.) consider cleaning it or having it cleaned professionally.  Look at this from Chevy Trucks: http://www.chevytrucks.org/tech/gastank.htm
If your car sits a lot and/or you do not drive it many miles a year, you should also be changing your oil by the calendar, not just by miles.
2023  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 327 SS ? on: May 22, 2006, 10:21:50 AM
BTW, it's butternut yellow...  Roll Eyes
That's why they call them clones...  Lips Sealed
And that's why most 1st gen Camaros are a work in progress... Wink
2024  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Silver Camaro Concept Car - Atlanta 2006 Auto Show on: May 19, 2006, 07:26:45 PM
You may be tragically right about GM getting in too late.  It took them three full production years to get into the pony car market, and by '73 the emission standards really slowed down the muscle car market.  BY 2010 we may all be paying $10 a gallon for gas or driving hydrogen cars.  I never thought about the Vette being a better buy.  But you've got a real idea there.  We may also be fighting very hard in every state to exempt classic cars from gas guzzler taxes, etc. by then!
2025  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Power steer pump cap on: May 19, 2006, 03:21:06 PM
Thanks John.  That's a very pertinent point about "production" vs. "service" parts.

We actually have two different questions going here, and the second question seems to have superseded the original. 

So, a 68 cap 5690846 was metal and generally painted black with some possible exceptions to the paint... 

You 69 guys can solve the other question...
