Dick Guldstrand's Dana Camaro at the '67 Riverside Trans-Am.

Michigan-based Kustom Headers became the supplier of Z28 headers to GM starting in 1968.
I don't know if it was based strictly on cost but certainly that probably factored into the
equation. The most high-profile team to use Kustom Headers were the "Chaparral" Camaros
of Jim Hall.


Close-up view of a GM part number on the header flange. For some reason there are a few
different GM part numbers for these Kustom-built headers. These were also available direct
from Kustom and those are stamped KH-37 on the flange.




Some Kustom header flanges are squared-off on the ends and some are pointed.
There does not appear to be any clear reason why. Note the 4-bolt collector flanges.




Info provided in the '68 Z28 brochure. Note the different part number(s).


From the 1974 Kustom Headers catalog...

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."
