those dealer installed trailer hitches that attached to the bumper, were only rated for 1000 lb trailers weight, 100 lb tonque weight.

August 1st was a Tuesday in 1967.  1968 was a leap year, so instead of the following years date being one day off as usual, its 2 days off. (usually if august 1st one year was a tuesday, the following year it would be a Wednesday).  Calendar week of August 1st 1967 could be either an 07E build week (if one exists) or 08A depending on how Fisher dated the tags since the calendar month changed after the start of the work week.

Spoilers became a mandatory option on the Z28's in April, the D80 code was added to the cowl tag in May.  BUT the D80 cowl tag code is not present on every Z28 made after they became part of the package.  Don't know why, possibly if the order sheet indicated the spoiler option was selected the tag got the D80 code on the tag, even though all Z28s got spoilers after April anyway.  The D80 code was added to the cowl tag just after the Firebirds started being assembled at Norwood and probably has more to do with the Trans AMs than the Camaros, as they used the same code on their tag.  Possibly the "computers" that coded the options couldn't differentiate between a TA D80 option and a Camaro D80 option.

It's the infamous yellow/yellow X77 Z28 with the Tonawanda T0225DZ stamped engine.

"O" in 67 is technically "special paint instructions"  could be a non standard stripe configuration, a show paint finish on a standard color, or a special order paint color, usually limited to s standard GM paint color that was available in the same model year on another body style.
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 0-0 paint code on: December 24, 2014, 10:07:03 PM
No way of telling how many were painted this color as its a special paint order car.  Color is most likely either code 516 Orange (probably) or code 519 Dark Yellow, both regular production 67 Chevrolet paint colrs, just not available for Camaros without being a special order.

Set of 3 14 by 6 rally wheels with 4 caps and trim rings Worcester MA.  $125.  Ad text says they are K1811XG, but picture of one shows  YF 7J26 so probably a mixed bag.

Makes it easier to build pilot line cars at the close of the first production year.  All the kinks are worked out by then.
12  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: December 19, 2014, 07:29:59 PM
Notice how every single one of the NCRS official build dates for these cars is 8/10/66.  Wonder what's up with that, and the 05B, 09B cowl tag dates observed to date?  I'm also wondering how they are turning the Fisher DD body number into a corresponding VIN number, as there are only 4 of them known, and only 1 lines up DD number to VIN number so far, and that number N100001.
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: December 17, 2014, 10:38:01 PM
They are all hand built made between 5/21 and 6/17/66, if the production data is accurate Fisher delivered them in batches of 2 to as many as 5 on any one day to Norwood, where they would be finished off and then sent to their final destination.  Some remained at the plant, documentation says 12 were to be delivered to "manufacturing".  Maybe all 12 of those remained at Norwood for testing, maybe some of them went to some other manufacturing location, whatever locations that would be part of the manufacturing organization that wasn't either Norwood or LOS.  The last tubs were delivered on 6/16 from Plant no. 21, and the latest date that they were required at their final destination (proving ground, sales, tech centers, etc.) was noted as 8/1/66. giving the assembly plants about 4 or 5 weeks to work the bugs out and get them ready to go.

17 of them were sent to the proving grounds, only 1 (DD64) was noted as being sent to Chevrolet Norwood, 1 (DD63) was sent to Chevrolet Los Angeles, 3 DD29, DD54, and DD58, went to Janesville (figure that one out) all delivered to Janesville on 8/8.  A bunch (11) went to the Flint manufacturing, 2 went to Oshawa Canada, another couple went to Atlanta, and the rest seem to be distributed amongst the various tech centers and engineering groups.  So if any remained at Norwood for pre production testing after the intiail buildout was complete  it would seem like it was only DD64.

In this case, plant 21 built the part of the car that Fisher Norwood would make during production and then trucked, or shipped them by rail to Norwood, where they ended up in the Pilot assembly area.  They never entered the actual Norwood assembly plant (near as I can tell) as they were still churning out 66 model year cars (and trucks?).  So why would they have NOR tags on them.  the 67/68 versions don't have all that certification mumbo jumbo that the 69's do so it probably wasn't a DOT requirement.
15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: December 17, 2014, 12:56:14 PM
Would it be likely that the "tubs" arrived at the Norwood (or LOS) plants with Fisher body tags (cowl tags) already on the firewall (ie made up at Fisher plant 21) or would any tag that presently exist on these car have to be attached at Norwood (or LOS) when they arrived?  

Since they were not scheduled by GM for assembly at Norwood (or LOS) and they were being essentially hand built in plant 21 in detroit, would they even have needed tags made up prior to assembly, and  if they did require a tag, would the pilot line at plant 21 attach a tag from Norwood (or LOS) to these tubs.  The 4 cars we know about all have cowl tags on them (with at least 2 different date codes on them - 05B, and 09B), how and when did these get placed on the cars?
