Is that NOR car before or after the one I sent you data on?  It would have been built the last day of production.

After.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of Robert's two different styles of aftermarket rear sway bars...

Another vintage rear sway bar for an early Camaro, again from the Robert Lodewyk collection. The name of the manufacturer is unknown.
The width of the sway bar is 34" across and the vertical links appear to bolt through the side of the rear frame rails.













Looks like a Supertanium bolt connecting the bar to the vertical link...


A closer look at the clamps that bolt around the rear axle tubes and hold the sway bar in position.

You're welcome, Max.

Below is a photo showing the holes in the rear subframe where the flat u-bolt goes through. The front of the car would be to the right.

Thanks for your input, John. Nice insight.

Bryon, I don't think we need an 348 intake photo here but the info is interesting and relevant nonetheless. Thanks for your input as well.

There are '67 Zs from both plants built on the last day of production.

I sent John an message about this so we'll see what he has to say. It's a bit funny/ironic that the 461X cylinder heads are more desirable than those without the X and the reverse is true with these caliper castings but I think the 461X heads have better ports (if I remember correctly).

Steve, yes I remember John Schinella's name in conjunction with Camaro design and he had quite a nice career at GM.

The video is a nice bit of promotion for your group. Nice to get yourself on TV and spread the word about what you guys are doing.

Steve, the Javelin team also used a zolatone style of paint on their interiors like some of the Mustangs did. I think the light gray was chosen for the chassis and engine compartment on the Penske cars to make any oil leaks or chassis cracks more easily recognizable. A lighter color in the interior would yield a cooler interior temp, which would be helpful during the long races. Yes, it required more work to mask everything off but people liked to follow Penske's lead, Success breeds imitation.

Max, here's some photos of an old Addco sway bar from the Robert Lodewyk collection. He says he also has a couple more old ones with different style ends and other details. I'll see if he can find some time to take some pictures of those as well.

Attached are pictures of an NOS right front JL8 / J56 racing brake caliper with the brake pads and cotter pins installed. The Camaro-specific inner caliper half for the passenger
side is part number 5469588 and the corresponding one for the driver's side is part number 5469589. The outer caliper halves are taken from Corvette. It should be noted that
there are some collectors of these brake pieces that feel that if there is an X anywhere in the casting number, example X5469589X, then the part is not an authentic, original
JL8 / J56 component. I personally do not agree with this line of thinking but to each his own. I can tell you that if you are looking to buy these components individually, or
complete, you can expect to pay more money for those pieces that do not have an X. (Jon Mello Collection)

I thought you'd get a chuckle out of that.  Grin

Max, that sounds like an aftermarket sway bar like an Addco, etc. You are supposed to snake the u-bolt through one drilled hole in the subframe and out through the other. It is not a rounded u-bolt, it has squared corners so it will lay flat against the inside of the frame rail. Here's an example... http://www.classicperform.com/Instructions/Addco/CP671U.pdf

Steve, there's also the air chisel method of getting more tire clearance, but only when there's money and championship points on the line.
