271  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Possible Yenko found in Michigan? on: October 31, 2007, 08:51:56 AM
I thought 2 white ones have been found?

If he ordered 4 cars in each of the 6 traditional Yenko Colors for a total of 24 and 1 black one, where do the 2 white ones fall in since white was not a Yenko color?

There is a slight chance that there was a non COPO 9737 1969 Yenko Camaro sold out of Douglass Chevy.

Doughless was a Yenko Super Camaro dealer who also ordered some 427 COPO Camaros on his own and striped them with Yenko kits. It is theoretically possible that he Yenkoized a non 9737 Camaro.

So a car can be found with original paint and Yenko stripes and was a Douglas Yenko, as far as the original owner would know, he would have bought a non 9737 69 Yenko Camaro.
 It is not known if Douglass only used 9737 9561 Camaros for the cars he did.

This is a hypothetical and no reference to the car mentioned in Michigan

two quick checks are the 140 speedometer and the BE rear end code

It says "The Mod bod with the quad pod"

It think that was a 1967 era cool way to say is has a modern body with 4 seat interior?

I found 3 1967 magazines with an article on the Z/28 intro but none had the picture I was thinking of

I notice in these pictures the Z had a picture frame type front plate with Z/28 on it and in one picture you can see where it must have fallen apart as it looks like the back plate is there with 2 clamp strips.

also you can see the prototype rear spoiler that has a flat back unlike the curve back of the production spoiler

I think there was a MOD TOP car shown with the Z/28 in late 1966 at Riverside Raceway?

I would have to dig out the magazine but I recall a few Camaros on display but the Z got all the attention.

What is the story on the Cam Camaro. I see it's been brought out to shows over the last year but have not seen a write up on the cars history such as where has it been all these years, and what condition was it found in?

there were prototype Camaros that made it in some 67 magazines that had non production features, such as custom vinyl tops, that 1st Z with prototype rear spoiler that is different then the later production spoiler and others

here is a picture of the hawaiian Camaro

I am doing a 67 Muncie/Muncie SB shifter right now and can get you pictures of the correct parts if that will help but don't know where you can get the right parts other then ebay.
With many of the ebay shifter parts, the applications are not listed correctly so you have to know what to look for.


280  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Tall big block valve covers in a 67 camaro on: August 03, 2007, 11:05:51 AM
I checked the set I have here for a name and found none.
They measure 1.125 inch tall (thickness) with no gaskets

Maybe made by Mr Gasket or Eelco but not sure
281  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Re: Tall big block valve covers in a 67 camaro on: August 02, 2007, 02:09:43 PM
how about the old school alu valve cover spacers? They raise the valve cover about an inch
I have seen these on cars but don't recall if it clears the ww motor
282  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: COPO 9737 on: August 02, 2007, 06:35:42 AM
that would be the first 69 SS I heard of to have the COPO 9737 option.

Do they have any paperwork for this car and does it have a 140 speedo?

Not all the 1968 Yenko 427 Camaros had the COPO 9737 option but most did.
The 69 Yenko Chevelle also had it. Not many dealers other then Yenko used it.

 

283  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Urban lengend on: May 15, 2007, 05:26:06 PM
I have seen a unrestored 69 Chevelle with the part no. stenciled on the drive shaft. There was a long debate on it and some believe it was an early service replacement drive shaft and it came that way from the service parts counter?
284  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: May 08, 2007, 11:18:56 AM
is it rusty on the flat press in tab? Some times the numbers are hard to see or were lightly stamped but should be there 
285  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: HURST/GM collaboration to put factory T-tops in 67 camaros? on: May 08, 2007, 11:15:37 AM
I will have to check my Hurst book , but I believe Hurst had a contract with Demmer Tool & Die Company in Lansing, Michigan to do projects for the big 3. In 68 they did the Hurst olds and also extened some Dodges for taxi cabs. Hurst did the 68 Hemi Dart and Baracuda, some of the 1970 Yenko Dueces, a bunch of AMCs, Grand Prixs, Chrysler 300s, and others. I believe they had another shop in Detroit in addition to the Lansing facility and their PA facility.
