Here are pics. Hooking a tape measure on the lip at the back of the 1/4 panel it is right at 15" to the center of the antenna. Looks off in the pic but the camera was at a angle. Hooking the tape on the trunk lip it was right at 1 7/8" from the trunk lip to center of antenna.

My L89 has factory rear antenna. Give me a couple days and I can get you some pics with a tape measure so the body guy can understand.

For future reference...  The # 1 Pace Car's L78 engine was assembled March 3rd. It is a 03C car. The L35 engine was blueprinted on April 3rd and it was dynoed on April 10th.

I sent you a PM. Maybe it is better not to post the hidden locations in a public forum.

I don't remember finding them on 68's but on 69's you can usually see it by looking at the tank from the drivers side without even dropping the tank. Usually the edge of it can be seen. Just peek your head behind the tire and use a flashlight. You are looking for wrinkled paper stuck to the top of the tank.

The CBC must be a typo on the work order.
402  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Build sheet missing on: March 01, 2007, 01:57:22 PM
All the Van Nuys built 69 Camaro's I have found sheets on have been glued to the top of the tank and not taped. Every one has been toward the front , drivers side.
403  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 67 Pace cars on: February 28, 2007, 04:04:57 PM

It is actually titled to Chevrolet Motor Division, Indianapolis Indiana. I think that was a zone office ?

Jeff you are splitting hairs on delivery as a L78. The Pace cars left the plant-assembly lines as L78's. There is a protecto-plate for mine as a L78. They were released from production as L78's. They then went to engineering and were converted to L35's. I stated in a earlier post that the Grumpy car might have been the first L78 built to be sold to the public. I don't need to admit they were L35's, I never denied they were. Chevrolet built and delivered a L78. Chevrolet engineering converted them to L35's.

 As for the Grumpy car being what put these cars on the map I guess that could be true if you were a drag racer or read Hot Rod magazine but the bulk of the population were not drag racers and did not read hot rod magazines. I can appreciate your view Jerry but I also have to consider that you are a die hard drag racer and it really would seem that way to you.  I don't doubt that many of the L78 Camaros were ordered after seeing Grumpy run. There was a whole country that also watched the Indy 500. When I was a kid, the Indy 500 was a huge deal. I never paid attention to Pace cars but I know the 500 was big. The Camaro was big and it was Chevrolets answer to the Mustang. I think the Camaro was big without Grumpy and without The Pace car or the Indy 500.
