16  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 - Y-1 (Butternut with White top) - Anyone have any pictures? on: March 28, 2014, 10:42:08 AM
I am restoring a 1967 convertible which is coded as Y-2 and 707 yellow interior on the cowl tag.  This is the standard butternut yellow with black convertible top.  I have discovered that some 1967 Camaros came through coded Y-1 which would be a white top. I have only seen one or two photos of butternut yellow cars with white tops but they were not good quality photos.

Also, I believe that the D91 color was the same as the top color?  Is this accurate?  So if the car had a white top and D91 stripe then it would have a white stripe?

Thanks.  If anyone has any pictures or any cowl tag photos showing Y-1 and 707 interior, I would love to see them.

Thanks

Is the fill tube with the return spring tab proper for a 1967?  Or di the 1967 use a smooth tube without the return spring provision?

The power isn't necessarily the problem, it is how hard will you launch your car and how well will it hook on that launch.  Your car could have 500hp+ but if your rear suspension isn't set up to put all that to the ground with no or minimal wheel spin then perhaps you won't have a problem.  Fresh, well set-up Rear axles are usually only grenaded when someone abuses the car or drags it or when the car is designed to hook and not spin at all.

If you have a car that is designed to hook and not spin, then I suggest something more stout like a beefed up 12 bolt, 9" or Dana 60.  If you have a car that you like to run on the street and occasionally have fun with and you don't have an insane amount of torque or horsepower then I would say you would be fine with the 10.2.

The Cherokee's VIN is 124677N233228 and according to the cowl tag has an 06B build.  The car was for sale at Russo & Steele in Jan. 2012.  How could of it then have been at the April '67 auto show?  Or were these pictures from the 1968 show?

Yes, the cap shown by 1967RS-NH is for the RPO K-24 system.  The cap I'm referring to would be a breather and have mesh, but I am unsure what it is supposed to look like as there are many out there claiming to be correct.  Does anyone know what is assembly line correct for the oil fill/breather cap on a 1967 327 with standard engine ventilation? The assembly manual doesn't show enough detail to determine what the cap should look like.

Thanks

What is the "correct" oil fill/breather cap for a 1967 L30 327/275hp with the standard engine ventilation system as shown in the 1967 Assembly Manual in UPC 6, sheet C5?  Also, I see that some restoration parts houses list a decal for the cap.  Was the decal an assembly line thing or is it an aftermarket/restoration thing?

Thanks

Actually in several states if the original VIN is known it can be used, with exceptions, in the state issued VIN plate.  I think the first order of business is to remove the paint from the plate and find the hidden VINs.  Until these issues are sorted out, I would stay away.

I have the Bottoms Up Lift 1500lb capacity car rotisserie with the pneumatic tire option.  The only change I would make would be to find a way to mount the rear of the vehicle solid instead of through the rubber in the rear spring mount.  I would probably make bushings out to aluminum to fit in there.

I have one by accessible systems in Tennessee, I love it.

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Which is the correct timing chain cover for a 1967 327 L30 on: September 19, 2013, 06:23:24 PM
Gentlemen:

Which, if either, of the attached timing chain covers is correct for a 1967 L30 with the small balancer?  I think it is the one with the longer timing tab.  What do the experts say?
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct starter for '67 - 327 on: August 19, 2013, 02:54:32 PM
I know that at least for '68 the L30/M20 cars got a special high torque starter, but I don't recall the numbers or have them handy.

Good morning guys.  I have hit a slight snag.  I can't seem to find a vendor who has the proper 1967 Yellow interior dye.  Can anyone point me in the right direction.  No one seems to have a listing for it in any of their online catalogs.  I know that Rick George told me it was available back in 2004 when I spoke to him at the GM Nationals right after he purchased the Berger 1967 RS/SS Yellow/Yellow convertible.  Thanks
