I appreciate the thoughts and recollections and I'm sure others do too. Here is a race report on the Michigan race from Competition Press & Autoweek.

Ed Bertrand sent me a listing from his 1971 Chevy P&A catalog showing the jobber price of $22.84 for one of these axles back them. Over the weekend, the pair above sold for over $2500!

You're welcome. It is my pleasure to be able to help. I think we've all got a passion for the cars here and to see you replicate them in a smaller scale with accurate details is fascinating and relatively awe inspiring. I'm particularly enjoying the fact that I'm the one making suggestions and you're the one doing all the hard work! Smiley

With regard to the interior panels, are they deluxe rather than standard panels in the '69 GMP model? Mine are all boxed up. Standard panels for all three years are different, to varying degrees. I'm not sure how you do all this casting of wheels, panels and/or tires. That would be a fascinating side story in itself.

P.S. Yes, power steering was used on Ron Bucknum's car at Michigan but not the larger tires (to my knowledge).

Glad you enjoyed those. Donohue's autobiography states that Penske's own scorer (Judy Stropus) knew that they had NOT won the race but Penske decided to let the SCCA work that out on their own. Apparently he got her and her scoring records out of the track post haste once he knew the protest was filed by Bud Moore.

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.
