G/7, Jon,
 I got that date from the " the chevroletcamaro.com" site years ago, it has been updated but still cites the Dana 427 camaro being built 6 months before the first GM 67 396 camaro. Very early, With all the main players being close to GM's R&D department I still wonder if that car was/is a Prototype. It seems that there are prototypes missing and no BB prototypes accounted for. Hmmm.

Big Iron,
   Non BB T400 mounts? What small block came with a T 400?  Would a new part number coincide with the introduction of the 396 ? ( the BB transmission cross members are also off-set)

Jon,
  Is this the same car from the Sept. 66 Car Life magazine? I know back then the magazines had a long lead time, being a Sept. issue I have always wondered is this car was a early prototype body. Has anyone ever been able to blow up the trim tag picture? or know what happen to the car? and did Bill Thomas race cars supply the motor mounts?

Keep in mind that input shafts can be changed during rebuilds.

Kurt, or anybody.
  What is the best way to handle/clean a sheet that my brother found on top of his gas tank just this weekend (72 LA SS Nova)? it is very brittle and is covered with 40 yrs. of fine black soot. Im not going to a document restorer as it is not mine and he can care less about it. It seems even a weak vacuum with a brush would damage it further. It is currently between pages of the Sunday paper for safe keeping.
    Thank's for any advise,
    Victor

 Take note of the black tail panel paint lines into the trunk, that's the same as my car. (correction) my car is a few THOUSAND after this car.

Red67,
    My car was produced just a few hundred after this car and it never (since June '80) had the posi decal and no sign that there ever was one.

Dave,
  I faced the same problem when repainting my car, nothing was worth using. I used the original born with gaskets that were still on my tail lights when they were removed, needless to say they fit and looked perfect. IMO there is nothing worse than seening a otherwise nice car with gaskets hanging out of the door handles, mirrors, side markers and tail lights, but it is so common. BTW there was nothing holding the gaskets, they seprate from both the car and the housing without damage. I never split the tail light housings. Hope you still have the originals to use.
    Good luck,
        VT

Jon,
 That was exactly what I was hoping to find.
    Thank you,

Well, I missed the two events up north. . . . Again, but trying to make Coronado this weekend. does anyone know where I can find a schedule?  or the actual name of the track? 
  Thank you,

 I'm thinking that the NCRS is correct and, their date falls in line with everything else. Since there seems to be NO 05A or 05B cars I think it is just one of the cars affected by this error.
  Thank's to all,
    Victor

Kurt,
  Thank you for the replies. So no 68 05A and 05B cars, something new to me.

Would that have any thing to do with the labor disputes that GM had in 1968 ?
