Dick Harrell and Fred Gibb were drag racing together in 1968 and wanted a car to compete in the auto trans class. NHRA rules called for 50 car minimum factory built so they ordered 50 COPO 9738 SS L78 Novas.

Some of them were converted to SS 427 Novas by Harrell.

The 1967 and 68 Yenko 427 Super Camaros were AHRA certified legal drag cars but NHRA would not accept the 427 Yenkos as factory built until the 1969 COPO 9561 were used.

Yenko was a certified manufacturer by FIA and SCCA for the Yenko Stinger project so AHRA acceped them with a 50 car minimum but NHRA didn't.
272  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 69 camaro BB 4 speed shifter mount on: May 05, 2009, 07:56:33 AM
The BB mount plate locates the shifter 1/2 inch to the dr side and 3/8 inch to the rear compared to the SB mt plate. The OEM mt plates both have a slot to adjust the shifter location forward and back.

The Hurst aftermarket mt plate is same for BB and SB and is a more solid design thick steel plate with a spacer plate but does not have the slot to provide the adjustment.

here is a thread where I posted pictures of the two OEM mt plates

That is the same company that made the Yenko clone.

I wonder what the buyers do about taxes. Some states get a 7% sales tax when you go to register the car. That will be over 7K just to put plates on it.

Yes some of the 1968 Yenko 427 Super Camaros were SS RS with COPO 9737

The was also a 1968 SS L78 TH400 Nova with COPO 9738

thanks Tom.
it says 1962-1967 ChevyII on the box of the shocks but I was wondering if they were the same for 67 Camaro as they look the same but the lenth can be different
276  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: Why am I burning up spark plugs so quickly? on: November 17, 2008, 09:40:26 AM
Are you sure you are using the correct spark plug? Sounds like the heat range is too cold.

Maybe a hotter plug will help but you need to check if it is ok to run that heat range
277  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 Z Front shock sticker location on: November 17, 2008, 09:32:31 AM
I have a set of NOS Delco shocks in the box that look like Camaro rears and have a 1966 date part no. on the shock is 3178182

they have a "BS" decal that is 1.5 inch from top edge of shock to top of decal.

I can't find the application for these. Do you have a number for the Camaro rears?
278  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Steering wheel report finally done!! on: November 14, 2008, 12:52:01 PM
nice job. Looks like some great info there
279  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How do I install a bayonet style stick into the shifter on: November 14, 2008, 12:48:24 PM
you need the 2 rubber parts and 2 metal locking shim parts. This all goes together with the shifter stick to make a sandwich that holds it in

Without knowing all the facts, I tend to think, “What are the odds”?

We have Jerry, who has 30 plus years experience with an excellent resume a mile long VS a guy who restored a rust bucket Camaro into a “Cross Ram Z/28” and brought it to BJ to shoot for the moon.

Best I can do for you is 99 to 1.
