Don't worry, Chad. I wasn't going to beat you up too bad over that.  Grin

I do agree that the Muncie is a great choice in a vintage race car. You are not the only Camaro guy opting to run one but there are others who, for whatever reason, choose not to. There are many Camaros running Ford 9" rear ends and also guys who are successfully running with a 12-bolt (including yourself). Let me hear your thoughts on the 12-bolt when you have an opportunity. I really did not enjoy seeing the '69 Penske car with a 9" under it. It does not suit the history of the car.

Great detective work, Chad. Thanks for continuing to follow up on this subject. I suspect that the valve cover usage was '67 and earlier GMC V8s, not just limited to the year 1967 itself.

I would be very interested in seeing the photos of the Jim Paschal (pronounced like rascal) Javelin that you mention. There definitely were cars that raced in both the Trans-Am and Nascar GT series but that was usually just for the events at the Daytona Speedway such as the Paul Revere 250 and the Citrus 250.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this one has been posted yet but I found it today looking through many videos on youtube.  Some of the sound has been dubbed over and it looks like they sped up the film at certain points but its pretty good footage nonetheless of the 1970 Lime Rock race.

Don White was the an official AMC driver in Nascar's version of Trans-Am, which was called Nascar GT and later Nascar Grand American. John Martin also drove in Nascar GT with a Javelin and used car #4. Possibly the same #4 that was run in Trans-Am. I don't know for sure. Seems like Jim Pascal was the most successful Javelin guy in Nascar GT in 1969 but I don't know if his car was prepared by Ronnie Kaplan or not. I'm thinking it was not.

Very cool, Tim. Thanks for posting that. I'd seen some parts of it before but not all of it. Lots of good Riverside footage, but other places as well. I wish there was more!

This is the best I can do right now. Maybe next week I can find something else for you. This is the gas filler on Don Lee's '68 Penske car. The '69 Penske cars early that season used this style of filler lid (and filler neck, for that matter) although it was positioned a little more rearward than shown here and the part that is painted black on Don's lid was stainless (silver) on the '69 car. I hope that helps.

Well... I've got a lot of old magazines, which I guess I'm glad I held on to because I'm getting good use out of them now.

Good luck!   Wink

When I saw that car of Craig Jackson's at the Sonoma Historics this year, there was a sign board that had some info about the car but I neglected to get a photo of it (feeling stupid now). It did say something about it being the #3 car from the '69 season and that it went to the Penske team and was used by them for testing and development (to the best of my recollection).

From the May 1968 issue of Sports Car Graphic.

Bruce, I think they call that "having a really good day".  Grin

Here's a Valvoline ad with the Camaro, as driven by Bill Petree.

Sometimes you come across pretty decent articles in unexpected places like this one from my May 1967 issue of Car Craft magazine.

A nice stroke of luck, Bruce! Not only fortunate for you, but for us Trans-Am enthusiasts as well. We get to learn more about the T/G cars than we otherwise might have been able to do.
