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?

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

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.

I think some of the export 1st gen Camaros got some type of sun roof?

the shape does not look like 70-71 Camaro stick.
It looks more like the Firebird stick
they have different stick numbers

I have collected and researched Hurst shifters over the last 20 years and have pictures that I marked with the applications

In my opinion ,
The one in the picture is not the same as 1970 Camaro Hurst
The 73 Camaro used a ITM shifter that is a copy of a Hurst shifter and has a chrome round stick but is not Hurst stamped

SS Chevelle 68-72 OEM used a Muncie shifter

You may not have had the original shifter in your 73 Camaro.
From what I have read, Camaro only used the OEM round stick Hurst in 69,70,71
323  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Hurst Shifter on: April 30, 2007, 03:27:16 PM
looks like early 70s Firebird. Pull out the stick and check the numbers
324  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NOS Yenko ZL1 Engine on: April 19, 2007, 09:26:23 AM
Yenko sold a few different versions of the alum big block.
 I don't believe the first ones Yenko sold had any Yenko ID cast in.
 Yenko was granted permission by Chevrolet to purchase blocks directly from Winters Foundry in Aug 1974.
Blocks were to be machined by Sevakis Industries in Detroit.
 This info is from the Yenko estate paperwork.
 Yenko sold alum big blocks over about a 10 year period but I am not sure if they were all made and machined by the same companies.
I know there are different versions that have been found.
325  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 3 speed shifter problem on: April 06, 2007, 02:55:39 PM
I guess this is an original shifter not a Hurst?
If parts have alot of wear it will need to be rebuilt
The original shifters needs to be clean and well greased to work correctly
Does it have the neutral gate spring? I see these missing alot on original shifters. There is just a little hat shaped metal piece that holds the spring in on one side.
These springs seem to disapear with age/use.
326  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: NOS Yenko ZL1 Engine on: April 06, 2007, 02:44:16 PM
they have been trying to sell that engine for a long time with the same ad. 
not sure where they got that info

thanks for posting the letters. I am one of the nuts who like reading this stuff.

It looks like the Georgia law was made to "prohibit duplicating serial numbers" 
 I could be wrong but this law could have been made to prevent the stamping of a blank pad of a replacement engine with engine codes and vin serial numbers.

I heard from some machanics who said they would at one time stamp replacement engines at the dealership.
 
The Georgia complaint may have led GM to use the CExxxx code stamped at the plant so this number can be used in the warentee info instead of having a blank pad where someone can stamp a duplicate number?

GM must have seen this as a problem that the other states would complain about in addition to Georgia law.

What are C B C vehicles? Maybe some type of test car or engineering fleet car?

In the last paragraph of the 2nd page of the GM documentation Phil posted above  it says that
" C B C vehicles" will be used to provide components then says power trains removed to be reinstalled in fleet vehicles.

Sounds like the work order is saying to swap the power trains from the pace cars with the power trains C B C vehicles?

Charlie, does your car have any numbers on the engine stamp pad?

What was the first race for the Jenkins 67 Camaro?
The Winternationals are normally in Feb but his car is 03D ?
The car was the 1967 Super Stock national champ so he could not have missed many races .
It would be interesting to find the first race date for this car.

I know the Grump would go to GM Tech center for meetings and get parts. I bought the 1970 Camaro prototype cowl hood from him which he said he got from Chevy engineering. (It was going to be scrapped) I picked it up at Jenkins Comp. shop and he showed me a prototype tall deck block so who knows what else Chevy gave him.
