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!

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We actually have two different questions going here, and the second question seems to have superseded the original.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

You cannot use "Quick Reply" below.  Click on the reply tab and on that reply page you will see "Additional Options".  That will allow you to "Browse" your computer and attach the pictures from there.

That's why I was hoping someone with a P&A that covers those years would jump in...
So, Steve, are you verifying that there was no other cap "listed" from 5690846 to 7803820? 
In other words, what p/n(s) covered 69 cap(s)?
If 5690846 changed from metal to plastic in 69 at any time, would that have been reflected in the p/n?

Richard and Jeff, thanks for the pictures.  Great thread!  I guess we all learned something.  I did!
2046  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 without cowl tag on: May 18, 2006, 03:02:28 PM
Post pictures of both...

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.
2049  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1967 without cowl tag on: May 17, 2006, 03:23:05 PM
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.
2051  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/
2053  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... 
2054  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.
