1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 67 Camaro Pilot Line Assembly Process and Procedures on: December 13, 2014, 12:14:27 AM

There is a film on youtube which shows a buildup from clays to pilot lines illustrating Fisher and their coach building, I can't remember if they were doing the pilots in the assembly plants or on a pilot line at design.  It was quite detailed showing how they made the steel dies from the full size models with plotters and milling machines.

Is this the youtube film?

1967 - wouldn't change a thing.
1968 - why mess with perfection.
1969 - redesign to look more like a 7 or 8.

Seriously though why change them.  Their differences are what make them great.
X2!!!!!

That is an early date code.  I'm thinking last week of August??

I believe the 10k rpm out of a 327. Motor had to be built right to do it but they could.
I too believe the 10k from a 327.  I had one in a '64 Impala backed with a 4 speed back in 69-70.  It had a "Full Race" solid lifter Crane Cam, I would "over-wind" the pressure plate often.  Even in that big car, it would get the job done.

My engine is a 210 hp. 327 2 bbl., backed up with a Powerglide, probably one of the  more popular combinations.  Engine stamp pad date is 10/26, car build date is 11A.  I purchased the NCRS Shipping Data Report, build date was actually Nov. 3 rd.  So in my case it was 8 days.

cool, Ill have to see if mine has them or not from the factory.

They would have been there from the factory.  If they are not there somebody removed them.  I would be willing to bet they're still there, I just wanted you to see this link so you know how to re-install them.

MooneyDriver;  if you're replacing the 1/4's you need to read this link.  I was fortunate and was right at that stage of restoration when this post came up.

  I was on Facebook 1 st. Gen. Camaro page this afternoon,

What group on Facebook? I'm one of the admins on the a First Gen Camaro Connection group on facebook. I think I remember seeing some conversation on patterned tops the other day.

one more.



Interesting that the trim rings and center caps are on the car.
Also interesting,,,,both cars are from Jim Funston Chevrolet.  Wonder if it was just exhibition/advertising.  Looks like the Black car is a "Big Block" automatic.

  I was on Facebook 1 st. Gen. Camaro page this afternoon, and they started talking about Mod tops on early Camaros.  I had never heard of this.

Mike, Interesting timing as I just got back from the Muscle Car and Corvette National show today in Rosemont near Chicago where I met RogerH from Team Camaro.  He has a beautiful restored mod top Camaro in the show that he bought new in '67. He said he scoured the internet to eventually find a dealer who happened to have some of the material with the exact pattern to restore his top.  He's also from Illinois (Quincy) so maybe you'll be able to see it sometime.
  I did not make it to this MCCN Show this time around, I have been to several, even dating back to when it was Chevy/Vette Fest.  I have a  few friends who went, and have posted several pics., didn't see a Mod Top Camaro.

  I was on Facebook 1 st. Gen. Camaro page this afternoon, and they started talking about Mod tops on early Camaros.  I had never heard of this.  During the conversation one pic. was posted of a Gold '67 Camaro with White stripes that look correct.  Further into the conversation I was directed to site where the pic. originally came from, where it stated that the car was believed to be the 25 th. Z28 built delivered to Funston Chevrolet.  Not saying it was a "factory installed" vinyl top, but it seems there were quite a few "Dealer installed" Mod tops.

 (I think this car may be the 25th Z-28 built, which was in fact shipped to Jim Funston Chevrolet. Notice the snow on the ground? This suggests a January-February timeframe. On the side it looks like it may say "Kar Topper". Lots of interesting stuff like body color rally wheels, gold line tires instead of the usual redlines, & white stripes when they should be black. I see shoulder belts too. Pretty cool but wonder what happened to it.)
