While not Trans-Am related, Frank also sent pictures of his NOS big block Chevy single 4-barrel
air cleaner base meant for use with the fiberglass hood. Also shown is the adapter plate which
gets mounted to the hood when running a big block. Frank mentions that he suspects this
base may be the one that Jim Hall and Smokey Yunick may have used on their '70 Camaros.

These photos, also from Frank, show the 1x4 aircleaner for use with this special racing hood. Note that
there's no snorkel like you would see with a standard production Z/28 equipped with a cowl induction
(on Camaro it was technically called a "super scoop") hood. Note also the original hareware to secure
the hood, the prop rod and the lighter-duty hood springs. Some rare-as-hens-teeth stuff here.











This is the original Hood Installation Instructions decal which had been glued by GM to Frank's hood.

More terrific photos courtesy of Frank DiHartce. When the 1970 Trans-Am racing season came around, the
2x4 crossram manifold was no longer legal. Racers had to run a single 4-barrel carburetor. Chevy accordingly
created a 1x4 carb adapter so the same fiberglass hood could be kept and used.

Thanks James, I do appreciate you looking. Would love to see photos of the car if you are able to find them.

Many thanks to Frank DiHartce for sending these photos to me of his original GM steel cross ram 2x4 hood so that they could be posted for
all of us to enjoy here on the Camaro Trans-Am forum. You can get a reproduction of this hood or even just the 2x4 insert in steel if you
look in some of the Camaro part vendors catalogs but this is a true authentic GM piece made back in the '60s. Once again, thank you Frank!

Many thanks to Frank DiHartce for sending me these photos of his original GM fiberglass hood to post here on our
Camaro Trans-Am forum. This is an authentic hood from the late '60s, not anything reproduced years or decades later.

I remember Tom McIntyre and Pat Ryan discussing this subject a couple of years ago. I'll ask and let you know.

Thanks for that info, James. It doesn't ring a bell to me. I guess I must have missed it when it came through at auction. Did you (or anybody else reading this) happen to save any photos of the car?
2845  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Original T/A racing photographs, late 60's & early 70's on: May 16, 2011, 12:13:20 AM
Yes, that's the same car.

You're welcome, Al. Just take it a little at a time and keep making progress the best that you can. Someday, you'll get that reward of taking it out for that first drive, all done and looking good.

Nice to see Robert and the car get some attention, that's for sure!

Great! Thanks for posting. The top two photos show the Floyd Aaskov Camaro in '68 at Mid Ohio. This is the same Camaro raced by Lance Pruyn and Peter Pulver in '67 and it is currently owned by Scott Bader. I don't know the others except for the last one which I believe raced in A/Sedan but not in Trans-Am.

James... Really great of you to post that here. Thanks a lot. Any idea who the seller was, how much it may have sold for, what year the auction was, etc?

I agree, Chad. Bruce has some of the coolest factory steering and suspension pieces I have ever seen on a 1st-Gen car. I'd love to see him post it here, if he is willing.
