Jeff,
Slow down.
No way Steve - those 2 track cars were not L78's.
Chevrolet made those cars as L35's.  It's all there right in the paperwork.
Doesn't mater what the initial order was - When CHEVROLET was ready to deliver those 2 cars - they were L35's
And they will always be L35's in my opinion.
I will say it again--  READ MY LIPS -- The first and only Real 4K 67 pacecar is the #3 car. Period
Let's work on definitions:
Factory configuation - configuration as built by Norwood (in this case).

My statement says that both #90 and #92 were both factory L78 cars. Both were then converted to L35/M40 spec for the pacer duty.

Both were original L78 cars and neither were in that configuration at the race.

The 4K car is the only *known* 4K car that was at Indy, and the only *known* L78 in it's original factory L78 configuration at the race. There may be others, who know if they will ever surface.

I'm not quite sure why you refer to the 4K car as #3. It was one of many IPC there at the race. IIRC, only the festival cars were in the parade, and since it was not a festival car, it probably didn't circle the track.

Here's what I see:
#92 (Charley's car) and #90 were ordered as L78 cars. Norwood built them as such (#92's POP confirms that). After they were built, it would appear that Chevrolet decided the pacers should be an automatic. The work order is dated after the cars were built and well after the order was in the system. There was no automatic that could live behind an L78 in 67, so the two pacers were detuned to a L35/auto combination.

There was a pacer that at the event that was a 4K L78. This is an 04D car and is the car that Jeff is referring to. So far, it's the only IPC that's been found that has been a 4K car. Since it was a regular car (regular here meaning it was not one of the pacers) that Chevrolet provided to support the race, it would have been at the race in its factory configuration.

What did I leave out?

OK, second warning for both parties.
Take out the personal comments. I don't really care what has occurred in the past on other sites.

This needs to remain a factual discussion, please park your baggage at the door.

Sorry, that label was never factory installed because that manifold was never factory installed.

Charley and Jeff:
Simply put, posts like the ones I just deleted are not appropriate and will not be allowed on this site.

It's already added to the db. Smiley

The car was on ebay back in 2005, probably by the same dealer you bought it from. Sorry, no history prior to that.
2799  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Is this vin in the CRG database? on: February 25, 2007, 01:31:19 AM
No.

Here's a link with better info on batteries that I put together:

I've seen others with a 2.56. It appears that it was the economy ratio.

No, it was not in the database.

It has a 3 speed indicator on the column? Trans is gone?

Thanks!
2802  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 LM1 could this be one on: February 22, 2007, 02:27:03 AM
Yes, the car is an LM1. No other model could have an X44 tag and 2 fuel lines.
Could you check the VIN, it's missing a digit?
Do you have the rear axle code?

Thanks!
2803  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 396 on: February 21, 2007, 03:13:21 AM
The L35's were available for a few months before the L78's were released.
2804  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1967 396 on: February 20, 2007, 03:04:12 PM
That is incorrect.
There were no 396 cars built before January 67. None.
2805  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: This VIN still out there ??? on: February 20, 2007, 02:59:45 PM
I'm trying to find/contact the current owner. The current owner knew it was a COPO when he bought it back in 86.
