Since I sold my '67 SS Convertable this week I guess I'll part with this as well. If anyone here is interested Email me ( otherwise It'll be on Ebay in a week or so.

That DOES look closer Deejaygee! Any idea what magazine it came out of so I can start searching?

Yes that was the name of the firm! The previous owner called this an early photostat made up by his Dad & staff that was actually presented to Chevrolet.

Notice the changes in the finished 2 page Life ad -

I'm still not sure of the date but the back side has an article on the movie Doctor Dolittle.

Just checked Ebay and found that the 9/30/66 cover was of Rex Harrison as DD.

Some Canadian parts were differant than U.S. - the '69 Buick 350 heads had a differant oiling system that didn't work on a U.S. motor.

Yes I did... but it was years ago. You should find the posts under doing a T56 swap into a '67 that I did back in '98. Not sure of the date of posting - but it was under rod67. I couldn't remember my password & my Email has changed so I just registered again under rod67ss.

Bought it off Ebay maybe 8 years ago from the son of the man that made the presentation. He included a letter stating the name of the firm his dad worked for and that it had been in his family since '66.

I've also got the Life ad (Sept. '66?)around here somewhere - just can't lay my hands on it at the moment.

I put Vette 15x8's all around on my 67. The fronts would ocassionally rub when I hit a big dip so after a few years I ordered ralleys from National Parts Depot that moved the tires inward 1/2". NO problems since!

Have seen originals both ways - don't know why.

I have a large mock up made by the advertizing firm that handled the Camaro introduction. Interestingly there are differances between what was rendered in this and what came out in the production cars. Most notably the mock up nose apears about 3 inches longer (more like a Jag), and the turn signals on the standard grill which are in the valance the same as an RS. The round grill lights are rendered as driving lights like a Mustang GT.  I wondered if anyone else has come across this preproduction light idea?

There are other changes (fender eyebrows, mirrors, striping, vett spinner hubcaps, etc.) made to the ad before it apeared in Life magazine. Also copy was added that in the mock up show as squiggly lines.

Your thoughts?
