Correct, it was not available until 1968.

That sounds like a neat project. I can't help with A.D. Anderson. Did he give you a list of other dealerships he is writing about? If we knew what they were, I (or others) may be able to help.

I don't recall where I heard it but I was told the stamps in orange were done on the day shift and the ones in green are the night shift. I've got no idea whether that is fact or fiction but is seems possible.

That is not true. Both Cougars and Mustangs ran in-line 2x4 intake manifolds in '67 because they filled out the proper forms with the SCCA to be able to use them. It also helped that Ford had the manifold already developed and available. Chevrolet did not have a proper 2x4 intake manifold available and thus did not have anything but the stock 1x4 manifold available to use. It was not until after the '67 racing season was over that Chevrolet was finishing up development of the 2x4 cross ram. That was done in time and the proper paperwork was filled out in time for it to be used for the '68 racing season which began at Daytona in early February.

Dan,

Thanks again for all the information. I appreciate it. Best of luck with the (racing) restoration of the car.

Thanks a lot for the information, Dan. Does the log book indicate the color of the car was still orange or was it something else by the time it raced? Also, can you let me know which track and what date its first race was.

Thanks again,
-Jon

Gary,

I make note of the VIN and cowl tag (if they are still there) as well as the rollbar number. I generally try and take down as much information as I can get, and sometimes that is hard as some owners do not want to share much. I don't go out of my way to document the IMSA/GT cars as my primary interest is the "Historic" era (1966-1972) of Trans-Am and A/Sedan cars. Some of these T/A and A/Sedan cars did run some IMSA races as well though and that might be listed. Some of the original drivers have been interviewed to capture their stories before they are gone. Eventually I'd like to get them into a book. I tend to concentrate on the 1st-gen Camaro as that is where my main interest lies. I hope this answers your questions.

-Jon
3083  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Data base for Camaro Race Car? on: November 10, 2008, 12:50:12 AM
What's the number on the rollbar (or on the logbook) and who raced it back then? I keep a database on old A-Sedan and Trans-Am Camaros.

Thanks,
-Jon
3084  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Research help needed, 68 front drum style, finned vs unfinned on: May 24, 2008, 05:08:23 PM
Thanks for the responses. Still looking for brake drum data, especially for the '68 327 2-barrels and 6-cylinder cars.

Thanks,
-Jon

Thanks guys for the data so far. I'd appreciate hearing from others, especially '68 owners with 327 and 6 cylinder cars.

3086  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Research help needed, 68 front drum style, finned vs unfinned on: April 30, 2008, 08:43:09 AM
I'm working on a CRG metallic brake report for the J56 and J65 brake packages used iin 1967. As many of you may know, those metallic brake packages were discontinued after the '67 model year. The finned brake drums used in '68 seem to be a lower cost alternative to the earlier packages and so I would like to understand which models received the finned front brake drums in 1968 and which models did not. So far, it looks like the SS models and L30/M20 models have the finned drums as standard equipment but I'm not sure about other models. I would appreciate any input on this so I can have a high degree of confidence in the accuracy of the report. My understanding is the rear drums were not finned for any model of Camaro in '68. If I'm wrong about that, please let me know.

Thanks,
-Jon
3087  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: correct mono leaf springs for L48 on: April 29, 2008, 05:38:23 PM
Some Camaro monoleaf rear springs got a daub of paint on the front spring eye, which can determine the application. Do you see any paint color in that area?

3088  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro base cp. 12 bolt posi on: February 26, 2008, 10:48:52 AM
Yes, it could possibly be original to your car. Believe it or not, there have even been a few 6 cylinders with factory installed 12-bolts. All seem to be with the 2.73 or 2.56 axle ratio.

3089  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: switching an auto car to a 4 speed? is this 427 vette engine worth big bucks? on: January 27, 2008, 12:30:38 PM

#1 How hard is it to swap a car from an automatic to a 4 speed car. I have an opportunity to buy a 1967 396 and 4 speed transmission from a camaro and am thinking about putting it in my automatic car?


If you have a '67 Camaro, the floor mounted automatic shifter sits in the same hole as a 4-speed car. It makes the swap a relatively easy proposition. I did it on a car of mine and no holes needed to be drilled. You can even use the same crossmember if the old tranny was a powerglide.

Paul,

It has been my pleasure to help you in your efforts to find the correct pieces for your car. I look forward to seeing the car completed. I know Ken will do a great job for you.
