That's a good read.  My car is one of the 68's with the 67 parts on it.  I was really confused and a little worried when I couldn't find the right part numbers for what my car should have had.

I hear that.  To check mine I've got to get the coke bottles out and a 10 million candle power light.  Sucks getting old (er).  So is that the original box?

What year car?  Mine is a 68 and it has A 1318.  A is the first shift, 131st day of 1968 and matches the rest of my car.  Maybe the first 8 is a B.  The 292 is the Julian date and the 6 is for 1966? http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#Calendar

There is a machined pad on the box that has the assembly date.  It's the Julian format too.  I couldn't see mine until I cleaned it up.  It's on the box where the cover goes on and is about 4 o'clock from the lash adjuster nut looking toward the firewall.

I don't have any real specific info, but I was told on another posting that the red color on my floor boards, under the carpet was the factory primer.

The point was they were "referred" to as 70 1/2's, like slang.  I've got dozens of car mags with covers that say "New 70 1/2 Camaro". It was just to point out that someone hears that term and thinks therir 69, is really a 70, and that's how these "myths" get started.
1478  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 302 in 1970 on: October 08, 2007, 10:08:10 PM
I think they actually called the 70 a 70 1/2 because of the strile and/or long production run.

Thanks Ed.  Since getting my Z and being on here and TC, I've had a lot more interest in my old car.  I am getting some old pictures from my parents and am looking for any paper work to see if I can find a vin or something.  It was a real POS, but I fixed it up pretty good.  There were not a lot of parts for it back then and it had a lot of rust, so I sold it.  The reason I really want to kick myself is:  this data base and possibly knowing what happened to or where the engine is and it had a front-bench-bucket and fold-down rear seat.

That's what I thought, but the CRG chart shows 68s and SS 350s with the finned louver.

1481  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Hood louvers on 68 SS on: October 06, 2007, 11:28:00 AM
I was reading another post and it gave a link to a table on differences in the 68s.  In the table it listed the 350 SS as having the finned hood louvers and the BBs having the venturi type.  Was this across the board?  I had an SS in H.S. and it was in bad shape even then, so I can't say much about what it came with originally.  But, it did have things that made me realize it was an SS.  I couldn't tell at that time if it was a BB or SB car, but if I remember correctly it had a SB heater cover.  The reason I ask is because it had an SS hood, but it had the venturi type I guess.  Would that mean, if it was the original hood, it was a BB?

I have an 05D car.  9078 dated 102.  Which is about 1&1/2 months.

Or a bad ground on the signal light and/or headlight?
1484  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Brake Pedal Assembly Paint Color?? on: September 30, 2007, 11:04:07 PM
Mine pedals are all black, but it's a 68.  I don't know if my paint rusted or what, but the assembly seems to be natural.
1485  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: How FAST Do You Drive? on: September 30, 2007, 10:59:02 PM
Not really sure.  The speedo only went to 120 and I had it pegged for a while before it topped out.  Right at about 70, the car started to squat down in the rear.  At first I was a little startled as to what it was, but I remembered reading an old Hod Rod or something that said they started to kick in about 70.
