Just amazing work, Mike.  Can't wait to see how it turns out.  Thanks for the update.

Coudn't tell you. I think that's a display engine and not what actually went in the Z/30 car.

Steve, I have a picture of Ruben Novoa driving it in 1970 and Daniel Muniz driving it in 1971, both down in Mexico. It has 69 Camaro front sheet metal on it and no grille. I can understand the change after being heavily damaged at Sebring. After 1971, I heard it was raced by others down in Mexico until it was left for dead. Rick Titus bought it out of Mexico in the late 80's and the ownership from there has been well documented.

I don't know much about Jon Ward's driving career otrher than in the Camaro/Firebird. I think he was more well known as a car builder. He did do a lot of circle track racing at Saugus, CA but that's all I know.

Steve, I believe this is Jowett's first outing with this red car of his. His previous Camaro was destroyed at Watkins Glen the previous August.

Steve, the HTA group has allowed aftermarket crossrams since the authentic GM versions are so expensive, among other considerations. Years ago they allowed Vic Edelbrock to use the Edelbrock version of the crossram on his Camaro because, well, he's Vic Edelbrock. Vic had (and still has) been very supportive of the group in a number of ways, so it was a courtesy extended to him. But it has grown from there to encompass some of the other Camaros running in the group.

Gary, the Stewart Warner catalog that superceded mine (posted above) can be seen at this link... http://gilmore-global.com/documentation.html

I don't know for sure if this is later '68 or if it's a '69 catalog because the date is not seen on the back cover, however it does show the 535-AH mechanical tach in it.
55  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Firebird and the Trans-Am series on: September 03, 2014, 11:33:56 PM
Steve, the car was entered by Fred Van Beuren, Raul Perez Gama and Ruben Novoa at Sebring where it crashed heavily during the first lap of practice. Raul Perez Gama was the driver at the time and also the owner of the car apparently.

You're welcome, Steve. The fender clearance disparity between the Guldstrand car and the Ward car, both seen at the same race/same year, is quite striking.
57  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Gauges / Instrumentation (Stewart Warner, etc) on: September 03, 2014, 11:16:53 PM
Looks very familiar, Steve. I had one of those myself years ago but without the early date.
58  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Crossram manifold on: September 03, 2014, 11:15:23 PM
Thanks, Steve. You could run aftermarket manifolds starting in 1971 but by then the 2x4 manifolds had been disallowed. Camaros were only able to use the GM crossram in '68 and '69 then they had to go to the single 4-bbl manifold in 1970.
59  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Gauges / Instrumentation (Stewart Warner, etc) on: September 03, 2014, 11:55:14 AM
Thanks, Gary. Post a picture of your Sun tach. What's the model number?
60  Model Specific Discussions / Trans-Am Camaros / Re: Gauges / Instrumentation (Stewart Warner, etc) on: September 02, 2014, 11:58:34 AM
I still have the larger SW 9K mechanical tach... which I think has a '68 date stamped on the back, but didn't see it in the catalog that Jon posted..?   Photo posted here..

Gary, that appears to be a model D-535-AH tach. I'm not sure what year that first came out but I'll have Robert Lodewyk check his '69 SW catalog. You should find a part number and date on the back of it. The last two digits are typically the year and then the month. Months are easy to correlate by the number but the year codes are shown below. For example S4 would designate a build date of April 1973.

A - 1957
B - 1958
C - 1959
D - 1960
E - 1961
F - 1962
G - 1963
H - 1964
J - 1965
K - 1966
L - 1967
M - 1968
N - 1969
P - 1970
Q - 1971
R - 1972
S - 1973
T - 1974
U - 1975
V - 1976
W - 1977
X - 1978
Y - 1979
Z - 1980
