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.

A Spring 1969 ad for Stahl Headers. That is Jere Stahl himself standing on the fueling tower at the upper right
of the Penske pit stop photo.

Thanks for letting us know of your efforts. It's too bad this car has been so difficult to locate and we don't know for sure whether it survives or not. Lots of neat overseas history and I especially like the Bill Thomas connection.

Ronnie Bucknum stands with his #9 Penske Camaro prior to the race. Looks possibly like Penske crew chief Chuck Cantwell in the background.

1968-era photo showing the dash of Penske's Daytona 24hr Camaro, as seen above.

That's a bunch of baloney that has never been documented as being factual. The only Trans-Am race that Smokey's car ran was Sebring in 1968. This was his third try at passing tech inspection (tried at Riverside in '67 and Daytona in '68 before that) and he kept having to do more corrections until he finally had the car acceptable to race. Somehow somebody did not catch a 12-bolt cover on a 9" rear axle? Total BS.

Thanks for the photo, James. That does appear to be another prototype manifold. I wonder if it is the same one that Wayne used for ID purposes when he wrote his book.

Craig Fisher seated in the first '68 Penske Camaro with Roger Penske talking to him and possibly crew member Tom Greatorex on the
passenger side. I'm not sure of the crew member at the back and neither is Craig when I asked him. It's possible it is a Goodyear tire guy.
This was taken at the February '68 Daytona 24-hour race. This must have been during a pre-race practice session due to the relaxed
demeanor of the people on the pit wall and also there's no garage door handle on the hood, which was there during the race.

Thanks Chad. I stand corrected. Are you changing gears (or complete rear axle assembly) for those tracks or is it primarily guys with Ford 9" rear ends that are doing that?
2579  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Original T/A racing photographs, late 60's & early 70's on: October 04, 2011, 01:45:18 PM
Bruce, I do believe that was taken during an earlier practice session because during the actual race the flexible
air duct was mounted up high on the roof drip rail and in the photo just above, the duct is seen just below the
rear quarter window.

Here is a photo of Donohue's first '67 Camaro taken at the Marlboro Trans-Am in August '67. As probably
mentioned earlier, this was the first win for Camaro in the Trans-Am series.

Here's a link to a CRG report I wrote on cross rams many years ago.
