Hey Rick,

Just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't seen it already, that I put the rules for the '67 season here.  I've also got the other years in there as well so if you feel like doing some reading you can figure out when they started allowing things like aftermarket intake manifolds, dry sump oiling, etc.

Draft version of the Camaro Chassis Preparations sheets, circa 1968. This was a document created
by GM with the intent to provide valuable information to people intending to road race the Camaro.

1967 Daytona 300 Trans-Am ad. First race for any Camaro in Trans-Am.

Mike,

No, I have never heard of it but I looked around and found a copy at Autobooks-Aerobooks in Burbank, CA, (818) 845-0707. I ordered a copy of that, plus "Powered by Sunoco 1968", "Road Racing, Detroit Style" and another one with no audio which covers the 1969 Laguna Seca and Riverside Trans-Ams. That should tide me over for a little while. Grin

I've got no idea but you'd love that one for your collection, wouldn't you Ron?  Grin

Compare the rear spoiler in both photos. The car is the same but the spoiler height is different.
First picture is at Sebring, late March '67, the second picture is at Continental Divide Raceway
in Colorado, August '67. Donohue ran this taller rear spoiler at the Bryar T/A, Marlboro T/A, &
CDR T/A. The car was damaged in a trailering accident on it's way to the following race and the
spoiler was not seen again.

Ron,

That reason for that extension has never been figured out, that I know of. Did the Factory Fit people give you a part number for that extension harness. Would be nice to know that info.

Thanks,
-Jon

You're welcome, Chad. We'll keep an eye out for another '78 dated one and see if that one is also single sided or not, just to be thorough with the research.

1971 SCCA Rule Book. Thanks again to Mark and Linda Mountanos for providing me a copy.

Quick highlights; Dry sump oil system now allowed. Any 1x4 intake manifold allowed including aftermarket.
Side glass in doors may now be removed. Door upholstery must be retained but not window hardware. The
battery can now (again) be installed in the trunk but, if so, must be housed in a marine-type container.

1970 SCCA rule book. Many thanks go out to Mark and Linda Mountanos
for sending photocopies of their rule book to me several years ago.

Quick highlights: Headlights and parking lights must be removed, windshield must have retainer clips, rear window must
have two retainer straps, any trans and rear axle may be used if put on homologation form, roller rockers allowed but not
a roller cam, any brake caliper and disc may be used. Minimum weight 3,200 lbs with fuel or 3,400 lbs with fuel and driver.
No more dual 4-barrels allowed, only single 4-barrel carb. No more fueling towers. Maximum gas inlet tube size now only
2.25" diameter and must use production gas cap. The windshield wiper motor and linkage must remain intact but the wiper
arms themselves can be removed. The battery now had to be in the engine compartment so some teams put a recess in the
firewall so the battery could be moved further back.

1969 SCCA Rule Book. Many thanks to Chad Raynal for providing me a copy many years ago.

Quick highlights: Minimum weight 2900lbs, less fuel and driver. Factory front and rear bumper must
remain installed now. Window straps and retainers recommended but not required. Headlights must
be retained but covered. All side glass must remain in the car but window cranks and inside door
handles can be removed. Wiper motor, linkage, and wiper arms must all remain installed and be
functional. 1969 was the last year multiple carburetors were allowed.

Thanks, Bruce. Now that you mention that about the '69 Penske Camaro, I do recall seeing that while at the vintage races. A check of the January '70 issue of Car Life magazine also discusses a quickly removeable front clip on the car.
