Look for paint overspray on places that should not have it such as bumper brackets, window stainless, hood hinges and the like. Unless it is a very high quality repaint, most paint jobs show some signs of overspray (some more easily seen than others).

This is what the early Firebird pitman arm looks like. I assume it was curved to clear the Pontiac V8 exhaust manifold although I have heard a straight pitman arm will also work and is what is typically sold to Firebird owners as the replacement part.

Correction. I checked a UOIT I have in my possession and the dimensions are closer to 8.5" x 15".

I have seen the C-shaped pitman arms used on 1st-gen Firebirds. No idea why they went with that design but that is probably what that is.

Sorry to say it but that steering box is the slow steering unit used on some '67 Camaro applications. It has a fourth mounting ear on it on the top side which does not line up with any hole in the frame. The 339 date, I'm sure it the 339th day of 1966. The pitman arm is the one which was used for the 1967 model year. In all honesty, the box is not a desirable unit.

They are a big sheet of paper. About 11" x 15". They are not what I would consider a card. Post what you have and we'll help you ID it.

3157  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early '67 Sub-frame on: August 17, 2009, 11:07:37 PM
Thanks for the info. Can you let us know the dates on the quarters (example H 38 2) and trunk lid (example T40). Also, can you describe or provide a photo of the quarter panel door jamb? Probably has the full phone indentation and two long skinny indentations as well but would like to know for sure as there are 4 known variations for '67 models.

I have had three '67 327 2bbl cars and they all had 1107496 starters in them. If I remember correctly, the solenoids were 1114344.

Yes, one style on one side and another style for the other side is seen on many original LOS-built '67s. Keep an eye out for this when you have an opportunity to view other '67s. It sounds goofy but it is just another example of a production anomaly (of which there were many on first-gen Camaros). I don't think it matters which side has the straight one but I'm thinking I usually have seen them on the passenger side.

I'm not sure what you are meaning by NOS ones. Do you mean are they originals and not service parts? Most likely they are originals. As production moved closer to the end of the '67 model year, the dog bone style becomes more prevalent on LOS cars.

3161  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct 67 Control Arm Shaft on: August 07, 2009, 10:02:03 AM
I have seen many LOS '67 Camaros with the straight control arm shaft. Quite often one straight and one dog bone on the other side. I'm sure this was just two different suppliers at the time. I have seen way too many examples going well back into the '70s and this is not just a service part situation. I should make clear this in regards to LOS-built '67 Camaros. For Norwood-built cars or other years, I have not followed the usage to the same degree.

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.
