It was a factory job. My '67 NOR Z-28 was done pretty much identically.

I don't know if the seat designed by Solar Plastics was called the "Total Environment Plus" seat
or not but comparing these two ads, it seems like it may have been. Anybody know for sure?

A little intro from Bill Thomas, found in his '70 catalog. There are probably not enough superlatives to say
about this man who did so much for Chevrolet performance back in the late '50's and throughout the '60.

Lance Pruyn hangin' the tail out in his nearly stock '67 Z-28. I believe this was taken at the car's first race
at the Lime Rock Trans-Am, 5/30/67. The car was not even a month old at the time. (built 05A)

This is the ad Mo Carter placed in the October-November 1967 issue of "Track & Traffic" magazine when he put his Z-28 up for sale.

You're welcome, Ron. Glad you enjoyed the read. Here's more from Gary...

"Me with the car bogged down on a standing start at The Glen. It was almost impossible to get a good start with the
light flywheel and all of the carburetor flow from the cross ram. I was still 1st at the end of lap #1."

These are the factory-supplied GM headers for the '67 Z-28 Camaro. Ron Ogilvie, parts manager for
Bill Thomas Race Cars circa September '66 - August '69, tells me that these headers were designed
at BTRC and built by Douglass Headers (Douglass Muffler Mfg). Ron says that he personally painted
the headers the silver-blue color and placed each set in a burlap bag for delivery to GM. These headers
were probably the most commonly seen headers on Trans-Am cars up until Stahl started providing
Camaro racing headers in mid-'68.

Factory supplied instructions on how to do the installation. The headers were furnished "loose" and
it was up to the dealer or owner to install them. No headers were installed on the assembly line.




Here's an original set of GM header gaskets. The heat resistant material is Raybestos-Manhattan No. A 56.


Pages from the Douglass catalog.







Here is an April '67 ad for Camaro small block headers by Douglass.
Most of Douglass' advertisements showed big block Chevy headers.

A couple of photos of the Everett Hatch Camaro. This car was raced by Dick Stanton
and Duane Zinola in '67 before Ev Hatch took over the driving in '68 and updated the
look of the car to the '68 body style. The color was light yellow and raced primarily in
Northern CA and Oregon.
