Paul, was that RPO the same ones that were tied to the Z28 option?

Yes.  On '67 Z/28s both the front and rear bumper guards were optional.  On '68 and '69 Z/28s only the rear bumper guards came as standard equipment with the front bumper guards available as an option.

Watching eBay I've seen originals sell anwhere up to $100 plus but recently a pretty decent one in a box sold for $76.  It is a premium on a "repop" but the reproduction one looks just a little too shiny and bright.

Here's one on Ebay now, only $95.00     Tongue

Just paint it gloss black - no one will ever know.

That explains the over-spray on the intake manifolds of all your cars Jeff!    Grin

Would they have been available as an OPTION for the other models, eg. for my 69 SS?

Yes, they were an option for any first generation Camaro.

I'm one of the guys who contacted you via ebay and I can guarantee you, as others will that saw your tag, that it is a fake - regardless of the date shown on it.  It simply is not correct.

Mark -

Do you happen to have the Ebay item number on this car?  Thanks in advance.

My guess is one (or more) of the pulleys is out of alignment with the others.  I worked for Buick back in the eighties and this was the case for alot of the Buick 3.0 and 3.8 liter V6s with serpentine belts.  Buick came up with a fix months later where you would remove the harmonic balancer/pulley and install a shim (or shims) behind it (on the crankshaft) in order to bring the harmonic balancer/pulley in alignment with the other pulleys.  It actually work!  I must have done a thousand of them!    Tongue

My cowl tag says 4k and third week in December.  I'm being told that it's a fake.  Are there any Chevrolet records that will determine the truth?  I've read the posts that discuss Grumpy and the tech center and the pace cars.  Are there any other sources of information?  Any information would be much appreciated even if it turns out to be not so good for me and my car.  Thanks very much.

Post a photo of your cowl tag using the "Additional Options" button.  There are many experts on this forum that can tell if it's the real deal or a fake.

Is there anyone in particular on the site that collects numbers and options on 68's ?

Hi Steve -

Yes there is.  Ed Bertrand does (he goes by the user name bertfam on the forum).  Email him with what you have, pictures are great too.  Ed's email is  bertfam@verizon.net

And welcome to CRG!    Smiley
