it is interesting that there was some need to show special order cars with a special trim tag and sometimes was as little info as just a dash (-) on the tag

I have had a special order 1969 Chevelle since 1986 so have been interested in these special trim tags which made up a very small percentage of the tags but can be found when you compare the special order tag to the normal tag

I also research all GM cars and trucks that I think were special orders and have seen some tags with the dash, a dash and a number, a number, the letters COPO, MEMO, AVO, SHOW, and others, and some cars that used the 8 digit Dupont paint code in the normal paint code field

Some 1968 Camaro special order cars had a very unique identifier which was to install the older Chevy tag with the Magic Mirror statement

 there is some different info on it but from what I can tell the 1970 Nova had an RPO F41 that came out about March 1970,
 used a 13/16 front bar and a 5/8 rear bar, and can be ordered on SS and non SS Novas

some of the 1967 Pace Cars and Yenko L78 Camaros have a dash or a dash and a number on the bottom line of the trim tag

It showed there was some type of special order

On the 1967 Yenkos, there was no known special parts or special paint and not all of them had the special order tag
some just have a dash , some have a dash and a number, some have neither

you can get a peek of a 1st gen rear sway bar under the prototype street ZL1 shown at the 1970 Chevy press preview

 the ad states "Special Paint (a $33.75 option discounted to 26.71 including tax)"

that is the same price I have seen on other special paint paperwork for just the color change

So that would mean the special stripe work was done for free

that seems strange unless it was a VIP customer or dealer

Jon, there was only one prototype hood. Grump didn't use it on his race car. He used it on his street 70 Camaro that was set up to look like his race car. The street car was a straight bumper car that was used for shows and promotions in 1970. The hood was removed before the car was sold.

Grump was at Chevy looking at engine parts, saw the hood as it was going to be scraped , asked Chevy about it, and it was sent to him with a truck load of engine parts.

The hood is all steel and was hand made at the Chevy prototype shop

there was a special order COPO 9796 done to get a larger 3 piece spoiler for the 1970 Camaro

quote from Camaro site

"In 1970 and early into 1971 the standard rear spoiler was a low profile, 1 piece spoiler. There was a very limited (COPO 9796) 3 piece spoiler patterned (or "borrowed" from) after the Pontiac Trans Am available in 1970. Few people knew of its availability. There were an estimated 500 Camaros equipped with the copo spoiler.

This 3 piece rear spoiler became the standard spoiler in mid 1971. "

Chevy was also working on a cowl induction hood for 1970 but cancelled it

I have the 1970 prototype CI hood. I bought it from Bill Grumpy Jenkins who got it from Chevy in 1970

sorry to hear about it

also check your rocker arm ratio

for example , if the engine was set up for 1.7s then someone installed 1.8s 
it could have an interference problem

something interesting from back in the day.......

Cars magazine and Motion Performance did sort of a reply to the Car & Driver Blue Maxi Z29.
They called it the Green Meanie Z30

1969 Z/28 with 350 cross ram, headers, L88 style hood, other mods , claimed over 400HP

there was more then one Smokey Yunick 1st gen Camaro. They kind of blend the history together so it hard to tell what that car is or was
44  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Stanford University Library on: April 08, 2014, 06:43:04 AM
the car and driver Blue Maxi Z29 is alive and well and is in the new issue of Super Chevy

that car is a clone of the 69 Baldwin Motion Camaro he bought new and was stolen a short time later

It was an original triple black car with white stripe and was used in the 1969 Motion ads
