511  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / '67 Parking Brake Bracket Date Code on: July 01, 2011, 09:45:33 PM
  I had a very pleasant surprise today.  I am replacing the rear Frame Rails on my 67 Camaro as the fronts are rusted through in places.  Anyhow, I got my new frame Rails and was surprised to find that the Parking Brake cable bracket was not already in place.  To make matters worse, one was missing.  I couldn't find anywhere that sold just the bracket(which the supplier said he would reimburse).  So I decided to clean up and use the old ones, as the repos didn't look anything like the originals.  In the process of cleaning them up I found Date Codes on them.  I will post a pic., they are on the top side on the triangle part right where the cable attaches.  On the car you would need a mirror to see it as it would be facing the floorboard.  The missing bracket ended up being a blessing in disguise, a bonus in the end.

  My 11A - 66 LOS built coupe has 40 6N  right on the bottom of the Drivers corner.  This 40 would be correct for actual Calendar week, but not with the theory that Aug. 1 st. being week 1.  And wonder why the N is at the end.   I'm attaching a pic.

 I found the answer on your report here;  Tahoe Turq..   My Motorbooks Camaro Restoration Guide didnn't show an L code.

  This '67 Coupe is listed on EBay, has lots of options.   It shows L-2  PAINT on Cowl tag, was that a special order color?

516  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / What Oil Pan did 302's and HP Smallblocks use with Windage Tray? on: June 06, 2011, 02:07:06 PM
  I'm wondering what 302's and High Perf. 327 engines used for Oil pan?   Did they use the standard Oil pan with the baffle in it?  Can a Windage Tray be used in cconjunction with the standard pan with a baffle?  Thanks for any input!

519  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Firewall Bracket (lower) for 67? on: May 31, 2011, 11:29:09 PM
  Anyone on here know if someone makes this Firewall Bracket (lower) for a 67/68?  I find it listed (Rick's and others) for a 70/73, but can not find one for a 67.   This would be the bracket that the middle Sub-frame mount bolt to.  My Firewall is solid, and actually only the bottom 3 or 4 inches of this bracket is rusted bad.  The actual point where the Sub-frame mounts is solid.  The very lower part of the '70/'73 bracket looks very similar, I was considering buying one of them and just cutting the section I need and welding it in.  Any help/thoughts are much appreciated.

victorsam>  I have a 11A LOS built Coupe no where near as well optioned as yours, but it has the original drivetrain, including the 657 cast block.  Mine was a 210 hp. 2 bbl. with a Powerglide trans. behind it, build date on mine is J 17 6.  Much closer to build date of car, I agree with what someone else stated, that by this time the dates should be ccloser together.  I think someone else posted, you will not find a partial VIN.# unless it was originally a HP engine.

Thanks John!
522  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring original TRICO Wiper arms on: May 02, 2011, 12:47:15 PM
Would that be on all '67 models, or beginning in calendar year '67?  My car is an 11A - '66 build.  Thanks!
523  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring original TRICO Wiper arms on: May 02, 2011, 12:09:41 AM
   In my research I'm finding conflicting description on what finish is correct for '67, bright polished, or satin?  What is correct?  I'm seeing a lot of places just offer same repop for 67-68-69, some offer satin, some offer bright.   Again, what is correct?
524  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Restoring original TRICO Wiper arms on: April 29, 2011, 02:02:11 AM
  Has anyone here tried restoring original TRICO Windshield Wiper Arms?  My originals are straight, and in pretty good shape, but the Chrome on the "knuckle" is pretty dull.  I found a place where I can get the rivet, that fastens the Stainless arm to the "knuckle".  I have some other pieces I need to have plated, and thought I would do these too if it's not too much hassle.  AND if it's worth the bother.  Any help, or opinions appreciated.  Oh, forgot to add, this is a fairly early '67.  And I'm keeping it as much original as possible.  Thanks!

>> Bryon;
   I am attaching a pic. of the front Driveshaft Yoke straight on.  If you can decipher the part # you're better than me.  This is actually a pretty good pic., #'s are just real hard to decipher.  I'm guessing, but are the last 3 #'s on bottom row part of date code?  I don't know how they coded these yokes, but my Steering Gear Box was day 276.  Don't suppose this helps much, but it's the best I can do.
