Did they have  "Muncie" stamped on the 3 speed shifter for the 3 sp Muncie trans?

I had a 3 sp shifter with Muncie stamped chrome stick but most 3 sp shifters I see
did not have the Muncie stamped stick

I have seen the shifters but not with the car attached
287  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Original #s matching SS muncie 3 speed on: July 22, 2008, 04:15:27 AM
does it have the original 3 sp Hurst shifter with the round chrome stick?
I have seen a bunch of these over the years at swap meets and ebay so there must have been a good number of them sold

 my Chevelle has a 10+ year old lacquer paint and held up well except has some chips on the rocker panels. I never waxed it once just use a very light hand rubbing compound on it

upshift/downshift also depends on rear end gear ratio

In the 70s I bought a 1963 Impala 4 door 327 4bbl (i  think ) 250 hp with PG.
I bought it just for the engine but drove it for the winter and that thing would downshift at high speed and that 327 would screem until it up shifted again.

make a note or take picture of the location and the stack order of the 2 shims and the shifter plates. This is where people screw up on re-assembly.

Also look for wear on the reverse detent parts

here is an interesting link to a 67 Camaro they claim is "custom built by General Motors of France believed to be the only one built for the Paris Auto Show in 1967 The first year of the Camaro General Motors installed slidding sunroof rear windshield wiper grab bar on dash yellow headlights and fog lights door marker lights inside door jamb L30-327-275 4bbl with dual exhaust "

I asked Joel Rosen "Mr Motion" about the ads that guaranteed the Motion Performance Phase III Camaros would run 11.5 ET.
 Joel said the MP Camaro drag car was runing 10.5 ET and was the same set up as the Phase III street car.
 He did not feel his guarantee would be a problem since he had a full one second cushion.

Joel also said that no one ever challenged the 11.5 ET guarantee.

almost all of the Yenko 1969 COPO 427 Camaro and Chevelle AT cars were column shift.
Yenko then installed a Hurst his/her duel gate shifter in most of them
294  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 1969 Camaro shifter question on: April 08, 2008, 06:44:20 AM
the one you have pictured is the aftermarket Hurst and has the 67-68 chrome stick. The 69 stick is different. The shifter body is the same for 67-69 but not the stick.

also looks like it has an extra hole drilled above the 2 mount holes

I found this picture of Tony Pizzi's 1968 drag car.
297  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Yenko Volpe Pizzi Rose drag car 1967 Z/28 on: March 04, 2008, 09:06:00 AM
Does this look like a real Z/28 and is there any way to tell if it is one of the early Zs?

I donít remember if I posted this picture before on here but I posted it on a few sites. On a drag racing site, a few guys remember Tony Pizzi whose name is on the door.
They said he was a pretty well known engine builder from PA. and had a very strong running 68 Z/28 drag car.

Yenko made a drag racing sponsorship deal with Dick Harrell in March/April of 67 to run a 427 Super Stock Camaro (AHRA) and a Funny Car. So I wonder if this Yenko Volpe Pizzi Rose Z/28 could be one of the 3 early Zs Yenko had.

On the 68 convertible Z...

In the early 80s Vince Piggins gave some interviews about the Z/28 project and I believe that info about the convertible Z came from him.

The way I remember the story was that they needed some type of approval from Estes to build the Z. The first approval was on the 283 prototype coupe in late 66.
The convertible Z came later when they wanted approval from Estes to expand marketing on the 69 Z?

Somthing must have happened since the Z went from combined sales of less then 8,000 the first two years, to more than 19,000 Z/28s in 1969.

I am going by memory here and would have to dig out the articles to see exactly what Vince said.

299  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: One pricey '68 Z/28... on: March 03, 2008, 06:28:01 AM
I donít see any real history of the car tied to Smokey Yunick.

It is more of a novelty car with a valuable collector item engine.

Smokey did have at least 2 1968 Camaro race cars he built mostly for testing.  I do not think he won a race with them but did race them and set speed records at Bonneville with both a 302 and 396.

When Bunkie Knudsen quit GM and went to Ford, he hired Smokey to work on the prototype Boss Mustangs in 1969. Smokey sold one 68 Camaro to Don Yenko and one to another well known racer.
Don Yenko won the 1969 Citrus 250 at Daytona in Smokeys old Camaro and other races and ran it in some Trans Am races in 1969.

are points deducted for original Dealer emblems or decals installed by the dealer?
Seems to be getting popular to put them back on restored cars now.
