646  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: production run numbers on: October 23, 2009, 12:44:39 AM
 I have an earlier run 11A (66) Los. Coupe.  Right door is H 43, left door H 42.   I believe 11A would be about week 44, so mine are much closer.
647  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Original 67 Block on: October 23, 2009, 12:35:03 AM
   If I read your report on 67 Engine pad stampings correctly, mostly only Z/28 and SS 350 Blocks recieved a partial VIN.  Is that correct?  I am pretty sure I have the original engine, but became a little alarmed when I started reading about a partial VIN, and mine doesn't have one.   My car is an 11A built LOS stadard V8 coupe, 327 2 bbl. w/Powerglide.   It has 3892627 Engine casting, the Engine pad reads V1026ME, if I am decoding this correctly.  It was built at the Flint,MI. plant- (V) 10 -(10 th mon.) 26 -(day) ME (327/210 hp w/Powerglide)  The Block has a casting date on it of J 17 6, I decode as (Oct. 17 -66).  Is this correct?  Thanks!
648  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Restoring Inside Raer View Mirror on: October 18, 2009, 09:17:11 PM
   I have seen some "restored" Inside rear view mirrors for Sale.   They talk about the Glass being "resilvered", does anyone here know of a place that does this service?   My original mirror is in good shape, except for the plating.  Thanks!
649  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Correct Bolt for '67 Rear Bumper Bracket on: October 07, 2009, 09:31:44 PM
Thanks for your reply!   I hadn't noticed, but now that I checked you're right, 2 of the mdo have 1" washer and the rest are 1 1/8".
650  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Correct Bolt for '67 Rear Bumper Bracket on: October 06, 2009, 02:53:54 AM
   I have looked at my '67 AIM, I'm trying to figure out how long #3909140 is.  It says in the AIM this bolt replaced #3831892 which I believe was 3/8" -16 X 1 1/2".   I know it is supposed to have the point on the end with a 1" captured flat washer.  I have several that are 1 1/2" long, and I think 4 that are only 1".   This is the bolt that attaches the Rear Bumper Bracket to the Body.  I believe there are 8.   Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.
651  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 67 Standard Grille on: October 03, 2009, 12:28:51 AM
Hi Jon, thanks for the reply.  I found a picture that shows the tabs I'm speaking of, in the picture they are showing them on the bottom.   But I trust your judgement more, I'm not even sure they know the difference.  I'm just attaching the picture for reference.   
652  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 Standard Grille on: October 02, 2009, 04:31:49 AM
  I am restoring my '67 standard Grille.   I am using an NOS #3891693 center Grille.   The Grille has 3 extra tabs with no holes in them on one edge of the backside, do these tabs go on the top or on the bottom?   Thanks for any help!
653  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / 67 Lower Grille Molding on: September 17, 2009, 02:54:05 PM
  I am looking at a Lower Grille molding on EBay for '67 Standard Grille.  Picture looks to be for lower grille it is NOS in box part # 3914771.   The Camaro AIM states #3891692.  Did they change the part# somewhere along the line?
654  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Early '67 Power steering box on: September 10, 2009, 12:17:25 AM
  I am currently in the process of doing a complete restoration of my Early (no holes in frame horns)'67 Sub-frame.  Today I was cleaning up the Power Steering box, so I have some #'s for you if you're interested.   The car is an 11A (66) LOS built.   It has (according to your report the correct;   5691676 casting.  It has a 266 casting date, on the cover it has 276 6 (I believe that is actual build date?)(and would be 276 day of 66?)   Which I believe would be correct for the 11A build date of the car?   There is a 13 stamped under the 5691676, I'm not sure what that means.   I hope this info. is helpful.
655  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early '67 Sub-frame on: August 24, 2009, 11:43:17 PM
  I was doing some cleaning of my Sub-frame this weekend and found some (partial) stamped codes of somekind on the outside of the Pass. side frame-rail.   I have included a sketch of what it looks like.  I think part of it is too faint to show in a picture. 
656  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Production #'s for Column shifted Powerglide on: August 22, 2009, 10:51:04 PM
  Actually I was thinking that Floor shift was not standard on SS's.   I know of a SS 396 Conv. with Bench Seat, Fold-down Rear seat, and Auto. on the column.
657  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Heater Box Pal nut coating on: August 22, 2009, 10:47:51 PM
   Can someone tell me what was the correct coating on the Heater Box Pal nuts?   I have cleaned mine up pretty good, without used chemicals or sandblasting, and they look to have been Black Phosphate.   All replacements I have seen look to be Nickel or Silver Cad. plated.   Thanks for any help.
658  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Early '67 Sub-frame on: August 18, 2009, 03:03:39 AM
  I have attached a photo of the Door frame, I think you can tell it has the phone indentation and 5 long skinny indentations.  As for stampings, the quarters have been re-skinned, as well as new outer Wheelhouse.  I have the old trunk lid in storage, I'll have to check the stamping next time I'm there.   I do remember it had both the Chevrolet script and the little rectangular camaro emblems.
659  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Production #'s for Column shifted Powerglide on: August 17, 2009, 06:15:37 PM
   Maybe I haven't looked in the right place.   I don't find a report that separates '67 Column shifted Powerglide from Floor shifted.   I wasn't curious until I saw this '67 Camaro listed on EBay, very similar optioned car.   Claims that there were only 600 built with a column shifted Powerglide.  I was wondering where he found that #.   Doesn't seem to me that the base V-8(327 - 2 bbl.) with a Column shifted base Auto. trans. would be all that rare.   Any input is appreciated!
660  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Correct starter for '67 - 327 on: August 16, 2009, 11:51:27 PM
  I have found conflicting #'s for the right starter for my '67 - 327 2bbl..    Camaro Restoration Guide (Motorbooks) says #1108367,  AIM lists #1107496 for Hi-perf. & Man. trans., and my Cars & Parts Chevy V-8 Engine casting #'s (55-93) lists #1107320.   Can anyone tell me what is right?   The original 327 actually had a '65 - 6 cyl. starter #1107259 on it when I got the car.  I was surprised to find that these were inter-changeable.   Thanks!
