Here's a dyno test performed by Traco for Roger Penske on Oct 2, 1967. This is a 1x4bbl engine
with Traco-ported heads, transistor ignition and an Engle cam.

What a nightmare thinking about constructing that "home-made" steel Muncie case. As good of a fabricator as that guy "Brooky" may have been, you can't tell me that thing didn't look nasty and not like a real Muncie case.

Photo of the engine compartment of the Larry Drover owned '68 Camaro which began racing at Daytona in the '69 season.
Original drivers were Larry Bock and Larry Dent.

Not a Trans-Am car but instead a Nascar GT machine, which I believe was built by Smokey Yunick.
Pete Hamilton was a very good Nascar driver pretty new on the scene at that time and Lloyd Ruby
was an outstanding driver who could race in any type of car and was always a threat to win.

While the example shown happens to be on a dragster, there is some good general information
on full floating rear ends in this old Hot Rod magazine article.

Thank you.

Mike,

I'm very glad those manifold photos were beneficial to you and your project. That's part of what this is all about. Let me know if you need photos of some other specific things that may be helpful to your efforts. I'm not guaranteeing I will have them but you never know, I just might. If I don't, maybe a appropriate photo can be sourced from another visitor to this forum.

That is a good idea regarding using metal pieces for parts of the rear axle assembly. As for the radiator core support, there should be a gentle arching of the metal along the upper/middle part of the piece and the edge that is folded over toward the front should also be arched to mimic that. Generally, I think the top/forward part of the core support is too thick but check it out for yourself against pictures of an original piece and judge for yourself. Sometimes a photo is not the same as looking at something in person.

I do appreciate hearing about how you cast pieces to have as extras and to use for trial and error. It sure is more complicated than any model I ever worked on, but it is fascinating.

-Jon

Looks like RC did offer a 1-piece bellhousing beginning with the '68 model year cars.

Bob West's Camaro gets sideways in turn 11 at the 1969 Sears Point Trans-Am between the Camaros of Hugh Harn
and Gerry Gregory. Bob had sponsorship from Nor-Cal Auto in Burlingame, Calif for this race.

1969 ad for Douglass Headers. I don't think they stayed in business beyond 1969.
