Mark, I'm like you, I didn't know it was there until it was out of car.  I'm looking at the pictures above, can't see it in the pics..  I was just assuming(I know the saying) that it would be visible, I just wasn't looking for anything like that.  Maybe there are a lot more out there than what owners realize.

I agree with others, you don't know how much you miss something until it's gone.  Thanks for all your efforts Kurt, and/or anyone else involved.  Great to be back on here.

  I am dealing with this exact same situation, I will be watching this post closely!!  I'm pretty sure the carb. is correct for the car, I'm interested in rebuilding it, including finding somewhere to get a correct tag stamped.

jimbo67rag;  Don't know if anyone answer this.  I believe that it goes spring 1 st., then fiber washer, then that odd shaped metal washer(flat on 1 side & slot in middle), then the nut.  You should be able to tighten it up enough so it doesn't swing freely.   Hope this helps.

I agree with firstgenaddict, there was a normative practice, but there were anomolies.  First, MOST of the people working on the assembly lines were not a bit concerned about the collectability of these cars.  I did a post about a year ago (Correct Seat Belts) for my Early- 11A  build '67.  I have a complete matched set of date correct Seat Belts that came out of my car.  Everything is correct, except for one thing, they are ROBBINS.  I've been told that ROBBINS were never installed in Camaros.  I KNOW they have not been changed in the past 24 yrs. ('86)and maybe even 3 more years before that.  Who, would change a whole complete set of seat belts, and make sure they were date correct???   And, would they pull a  car from the line for seat belt if they knew they could substitute others with the exact same specs. Huh?  I am planning to restore and use these belts, because I believe the car left the factory with them.  I know this situation does not pertain to this topic exactly, Just saying I agree 100% with firstgenaddict.

I'm in for a set of '67 standards.
622  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Date Coded Glass on: July 30, 2010, 06:03:57 PM
  RIGHT ON!!!   Just picked up my dated windshield for my 11A built '67 Coupe, that's all I can say is it is right on the money compared to the original.   I am very pleased.  This Forum is awesome, it has helped in so many ways already.  This company PS Auto Glass, was reccomended  by Jerry M. (see above reply)and it is right in my area.  I picked it up.   AWESOME !   Thanks everyone!

Pex68;  Is that your Firewall date code below the partial VIN in next to last pic.?   That's where mine was, partially covered with caulk.
624  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Black Firewall Paint on: July 30, 2010, 04:18:05 PM
Buddy:  I have an 11A(66) built LOS car and it has the hidden partial VINs, and they match.  Everything else on this car has checked out, ie: date codes, and part #'s.  This is the first I have ever heard that '67's didn't have the hidden partial Vin.
625  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct subframe bolts on: July 28, 2010, 11:24:35 PM
HOGDADDY;  I have an "early" (11A -66) '67 Coupe, and it has the 4 Sub-frame bolts like you pictured in your original post with the indented head and shoulder washer, and pointed.  These 4 are 5/8 in. X 3 in. long, I believe the Core support bolts should look the same, except they are only 1/2 in. X 3 in..  I believe mine are all original to the car.  I'm seeing all Repop's of the Sub-frame bolts with No indented head, No shoulder washer, and no Point on the other end - and they are claiming these correct, so I'm wondering if they changed somewhere along the way.  Good luck sorting this out.

@nuts4coke, forgot to mention in last post.  If you're trying to stay original, you need to replace the Drivers door mirror, thats a '68.   It should have around one, and from feedback and research I've done our "Early" '67's should have the Bowtie on the back.
627  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Manual to Disc Upgrade... do I affect originality? on: July 23, 2010, 02:19:05 PM
@nuts4coke,  my car is about 95% original, engine, tranny, rear-end.   I have found codes on several panels (see post on restoration here) My car had the intake and carb. changed to a newer 70's 2 bbl.(don't know why), I have found correct pieces to replace those to original.  I have verified the partial VIN. #.   I have just located the registration card for who I believe was the 2 nd. owner, should be relatively easy to track back to first owner and possibly dealer from there(wish me luck).  Car has always been registered in Illinois I believe.  I actually think I know dealer but would like to verify and authenticate it.  My plans are to upgrade the car so I can enjoy it, but keep all original parts for (future?Huh?)   Like you I have no intention of ever selling this car, I intend to "pass it down" within the family.  I don't think I said this car was built the week of my Birthday in '66, makes it a little more special to me.
628  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Restoring Inside Raer View Mirror on: July 22, 2010, 04:48:47 PM
  Any place I've looked, including Rick's, the 67-68 Inside mirrors are listed as the same.  I've even seen some OE's listed as same.  But '69 must be different.  However, the bracket that the mirror attaches to seems to have changed in '68 and is the same as '69.
629  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Manual to Disc Upgrade... do I affect originality? on: July 22, 2010, 04:15:47 PM
Hey nuts4coke, sounds like your car is much like mine.  Pretty much standard V8 Coupe, with Tinted Windshield (only), Powerglide, P. Steering, AM Radio, and Full Wheel hubcaps.  Bolero Red with Black Standard Buckets.  What color is yours.  Personally I'm going with the P. Disc front brakes, I'm going to use a kit from Right Stuff, Jerry M. says they are very good.
