No way. All 67-69 350 Camaros had a Rochester 4 barrel.

All 67-69 **SS** 350 Camaros were 4 bbl. The 69 L65 350 (non-SS) was a 2 bbl.

I looked at the Detroit Speed RS setup. Looked nice for a restomod car.

Wonder what motors the ebay systems uses?

I'm not a paint guy, but you want a self etching primer.

Randy,
That is correct. So this car could not have been sold originally in Canada.

All covers should be screwed on. I have seen 2 different kinds of screws used.

Ed, I recognize that reg pic. :)
Here's another shot of the 05E date. Note the pencil marks on the side.

Yes, I did. And it's always been our policy not to disclose details on why a tag looks like a repro tag. It's not because it's too clean.

Out of 11,000+ cars in the database, not one has a build date that's off by a month.

Originality / Re: '67/'68 clutch FAN, ...4 rivets ....not 5?
« on: April 25, 2006, 02:26:50 AM »
There is one fan used in 67, 912239, that did use five rivets. Never seen it on a 68.

Need to finish the update to that cooling report...

Have to say that is a P&A34 date that I haven't seen before. Would be a good one for 68 guys....

That might be in Jerry's book, but Camaro continued using the 2 digit code from what I've seen. I've only heard of one or two exceptions and have not seen pics of those pads.....

There are anomalies, but this tag does not appear to be one. That's after comparing it to literally thousands of other tags. Reproduction tags have been around for decades. Maybe the tag was missing, who knows.

"The pacecar contact suspects it is an 05A that has been mis-stamped."
And did they state whether or not they thought the tag was original? I had another pacecar member state to me that they did not think it was original.

Not sure what the fear is in having the numbers out there. Most ebay ads have the numbers listed, or go to a car show....

To answer the question, I was able to dig the pics out of my internet temp directory. After comparing the tag pic to the many others I have, my opinion is that it is not original. :(
Which explains why the #'s don't line up, but not how the tag got there.

Axle is from an early 70's Nova.

It could be just a date misstamp by Fisher Body. That's what it kinda looks like, but that is pretty rare and the #'s just don't line up right.
I agree with Daniel, pics would help.

It appears to be a IPC replica, probably ordered by the dealer after they were no longer available. Or it could just be a car with the exact same colors and options. :)
What's the code on the transmission?

I just looked thru similarly dated trim tags, have never seen that typo before.
Feel free to email me the pic if you can't post it.
