2510  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Heavy duty GM 12-bolt axles on: July 12, 2011, 09:54:53 AM
I was told about a recent ebay auction which featured some very rare NOS 12-bolt axles designed for heavy-duty use and Trans-Am racing. These were listed as part number 3927508 in the Chevrolet Special Equipment catalog (aka Green Sheets). These axles are a rare find and are real GM parts, not aftermarket.  They were meant for 1967 - 1969 Chevrolet Camaros with rear drum brakes and utilized 1/2" studs (per the catalog).  The axles are stock length as well as the spline count (30).  The casting numbers on the end of the axles look like they are 9145 and 9349. Below are some photos of the actual parts.

Maybe there's more than one? Tom told me he bought it from the guy.

That glass piece is really cool. I let Tom McIntyre know about it when it was on ebay since he has Donohue's '68 and Tom was able to purchase it from the seller.

The wear of a long day behind the wheel is evident on his face.

Finally out of the car to receive his accolades.

our Trans-Am memorabilia section.

Well, after the race was over Bud Moore protested to the race officials stating his scoring charts showed Parnelli as the rightful winner.
PJ had been turning faster lap times than anybody during the later part of the race and due to some extra pit stops for tire issues by
Donohue and Titus he had actually caught and passed them with only a few of the official scorers realizing it. Several hours after the
race was over and the crowd went home, Parnelli Jones was declared the official winner. Ladies and Gents, here is your winning car.

Not a great day to be standing outside in attire like this.

They seem to be making the best of it.

Ron Bucknum's day ended early due to unrepairable issues with the power steering in his car.

Gary Wright was flagged as the winner of the Under-2-liter catagory. Scoring errors were later corrected to give the U-2 win to Fred Baker and Dick Smothers.

"Colorful" flagman Ed Houlehan does his thing. Ed also flagged at Mid-Ohio. Maybe other places as well.

Parnelli is barreling along and has closed the gap on the leaders thanks to their pits stops for tire problems.

Bert Everett supposedly exited the race with a blown tire but with the engine lid up and on a tow rope, it almost looks like engine trouble.

Penske shows the pit board to Donohue flashing by. He thinks they've won the race.
