Maybe I should rephrase that: I didn't realize there were aftermarket tear drop hoods for Chevrolets back then.
The Tear drop Hood (& scoops) was one the most popular in the mid-60's.

Guys, did Yenko ever convert a black exterior 69 camaro with Yenko graphics? See reply #17
Vince,,, No, Don Yenko never built a Black 69 Yenko.  But, there was  dealer in Chicago, Douglas that had bought and sold several Yenkos.  Douglas struck a deal with Don Yenko to just purchase the Decals and emblem put them on COPOs that he ordered. Story goes that Douglas built 2 each of Black with White, Red with White and White with Black Stripes.  One of which was White with Black stripes with Black Vinyl roof.

avnut,,,here's pic. I promised of the tailpipes.  You can also see here clearance, car is sitting on the ground.  As I said before, the Headers are the low spot, which is pretty normal.  I also remembered, I cut about 3/4 in. off the front end of the Pass. side tailpipe where it goes into muffler to get more clearance so it wouldn't hit the Mono-leaf spring.

avnut,,,I got the system (PYPES SGF 70) from JEGS store on EBay. ($513.98 free shippn. in '12)  Summit still has same system $515.99 and free shipping.  Did either Darrell or I mention this system is stainless?  With the limited use the car gets (and pampered) it should out last me.  And yes, this system is "Header back".  If you don't want to use Headers, you have to buy the downpipe separate.
Darrell,,,I had no labor expense.   My Grandfather owned a Gas station and my brother and I worked our way through High School there.  Installed many an Exhaust system in my day.

avnut,,,I used the complete PYPES system without any clearance issues either as far as fitment or Ground clearance.  I'm going to post a pic., notice I have installed Sub-frame connectors, and the PYPES do not hang lower than the connectors. The lowest part of the Exhaust is the Headers, which is not unusual. I will try to get a pic. in the next couple of days of how I did the tailpipes (Bologna sliced)  BTW, I have over 4,500 miles on this exhaust with no issues.  As an idea of how much ground clearance I have, I took this pic. just laying on the Garage floor.

I also used the 2 1/2 in. PYPES Pro Race Crossflow system behind Headers.  My wife loves it, would rather listen to the exhaust than the Radio.  Here is thread I posted before, Reply #22 & #23.
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9411.15

*Note my #23 comment on the 2 hangers in front of the axle.  Also this system exits in almost the same location as original.  I "Bologna Sliced" the end of my tailpipe, but only about 1/2 in. showing.

BTW, Darrell;  nice pic. of the system up under the car.

Good to hear from you again.  Sounds like a long road to full recovery, just be sure to take it easy and do as the Drs. say.  Taking it  easy is hard for me(I had Prostate cancer surgery Jan. 20) but just gotta do it.  That first month was hard (sitting on my hands, LOL!)  I'm back to normal now, I like to keep active.  3 month check up my PSA is 0.04.  Woohoo!!!!

Risnor, I have been following this subject and submitted and applications as well. This has to be a labor of love to dig and research through all these files in order to help others find out information about their car(s).  This is a great service you and your team are providing.
I would like to thank you and your team for researching this information and sending out the information to the Camaro owners here on CRG.  To date, with the more than 600 plus application that you have received, how many actual certificates have been processed, including those that were refunded due to not being in the archive files.
 
TMR..
X2,, I would also like to thank Risnor and his team, what a great service.  I applied for my car #801, haven't heard yet whether it's good.  Regardless, THANKS!

I had a 327, professionally built, in a '64 Impala with 4 speed with HURST competition plus shifter and 411 Posi. Running Crane "Full Race" solid lifter Cam, Dual line Holley and Headers.  Tell you what,,,,for a BIG car that thing would "Git er Done".  Overwound the pressure plate many times.  Brings back fond memories.

Welcome avnut!! A lot of long time owners here and some young guns too...all are welcome. Look forward to your posts and pics when you figure that out. We are all behind you and many have long time restos in progress, so you are not alone, but you have already probably been reading those posts. Hoping your time money and energy hold out.

X2 ko-lec-tors comment and welcome.  I was lucky enough to find this forum a couple of years prior to starting my restoration, and can't say enough about the wealth of information here.  Keep us posted, and yes we like pics.

Yes guys, my bad.  The casting # is 3855961 but couple of places I looked said that Block was used in '67.  (ie; my comment correct casting)  Sorry!
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Need some help with Engine Pad stamp on: May 01, 2014, 06:58:59 PM
I'm helping a friend detail a '67 SS 396 Chevelle he just bought.  I know some of you guys are real good at decoding engine pad stamps.  I've never seen one like this.  The last 4 digits are stamped really deep and a little larger.  The pics. I've posted aren't that great, I apologize for that.  The stamp reads TO228IVR   6R20  4213   You can make out in second pic. the last 4 digits are way deeper and little larger.  The casting # is correct for a '67 396 Block.  Any help is appreciated.
