Originality / 1968 R/S Molding clips style
« on: November 26, 2010, 01:38:19 AM »
Hi Guys,
 Part # 3921828 retaining clips in the AIM (page 423) shows a clip that looks like the repo items from classic camaro or rick's with a green finish and two prong construction, However the clips that were I removed were four prong brown finish clips that resemble a
 bug with longer "leggs" on one side like a stink bug (the moldingd are somewhat triangle shapped). There is not a revision listed in my AIM but there is no printed date either, The car is an L.A. 05C, I want to use the brown clips that fit perfectly and holds the moulding very tight. Does anybody know if these clips were original? changed at the assembly plantat some point?  and if so, where can i get six more?
 The brown four prong clips are far superior to the green two prong clips. Has any one else encountered these clips on their car?
 Thank you for your time,

Originality / 68 painted side marker bezels
« on: July 06, 2009, 12:52:42 AM »
I need some observation help regarding original 1968 side marker bezels. It seems that the front bezels were Highlighted with black painted Valleys (# 3925429) and the rear quarter panel belels are not painted ( # 3927459). Other than part books, I have been unable to find any information about this. For the last two weeks i have been attending as many shows/cruises as i could, but was not convinced one way or another. So happens the original painted cars i saw were both L.A. cars and both had the black front bezels and neither owner had ever noticed they were not the same as the rears. (these were standered models) My car has the R/S option. So my questions are: Is this standard?, Part of a trim option?, How is this judged at a show?  If you have any input please post.
 Thank you,

 I found two different front side marker bezels while reassembling my O5C LA RS/SS. one is part # 3925429 and inside the "valley" is painted black. The other is part # 3927459 and is not painted in the "valley". Was one of these part of the RS package?

General Discussion / Edelbrock's red camaro
« on: March 26, 2009, 05:23:17 AM »
Hi guys,
I was wondering if anybody has ever checked out the red 67 SS "that came from the factory with a 327" becuse they ran out of 350s ? I remember this being a magazine car early on (I think one of the stories was "THE CAMARO THAT COULD"). I don't buy that the factory made so many big mistakes. It seems that a lot of people think their wrong part is somehow original. It was common in the late 70's early 80's to crash or buy a crashed muscle car an put all the good stuff on a stocker... we did a few... numbers ment nothing! Parts were cheap, labor was free. We also swapped out all the good parts we wanted when we sold or traded cars. I have gone through 7 early camaros through the years and still have many of the good parts, kept 1 original BB car. Our group went through dozens (Chevelles and Novas too) and i'm sure this was repeted throughout the hot rod world. People junked 302s becuse they did not know how to tune or drive them. Anyway any info on the Edelbrock camaro would be great to know.
