Thats my 67.  Didn't realize my car made it on until reading this thread!  Anyways, bought in dec. of 99 when I was 24.  I am the 3rd owner.  Originally butternut yellow but the dude before me painted it black and added the spoiler (which I have recently removed).  Has the original motor and rear end (gears have been changed to 4.11s) but trans was swapped out to a 700r4.  If I remember correctly, previous owner said he blew the pg drag racing it.  I have the pop but haven't found a build sheet yet.  It's a LA 01C car. 

Will post other pics later when I get a chance...

When I bought my Camaro, I remember my mom telling me she had one.  They bought it in 67 and then she thrashed the suspension by driving it on railroad tracks with her friends in high school in 1971.  Could of sworn she said she totaled it...  This is the only picture I have seen.

Thanks gents!
109  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Is this an OE Leaf Spring Eye Bolt & nut? on: October 28, 2011, 12:41:25 PM
The bolt in question is the bottom bolt and nut?  I replaced my leaf springs about 10 years ago and now just going through some old hardware.  If I remember correctly, I bought the top bolt from a resto shop but they were longer than the originals I had.  Can anyone confirm???  Thanks

Thanks for the info.  My choice is now clear!  Thanks
111  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / 1967 Tires: Diamondback vs Kelsey on: September 05, 2011, 05:31:00 PM
Just tried to search for info for my 67 but found mostly 69's and some 68's.  Sorry if I missed it...  

I am going to be needing new tires for my 67 RS/SS soon (14x6 FC wheels with mag hubcaps).  Safety is the biggest concern since I drive it frequently and will be going with radials no bias.  

As I understand it, diamondback makes Firestone reproduction tires and Kelsey makes Goodyear repros.  Is one more correct over the other for a 1967 RS/SS with an 01C build date?  Is one brand preferred more than the other in terms of safety and quality?  

What was more common for an early 67, the redline or white striped tire?  Goodyear or Firestone?  I searched their sites but did not find a D70 tire???

P.S. I know Coker is also an option but did not find much positive about them (quality and customer service) in my research so they are all but out.

Thanks for the help guys. 

Hey Mello, mine is stamped T52 also. You got any pics of the whole underside?

Thank you sir!

Light

Thanks!

Whatever holes were drilled for the studs do not belong. I'd media blast the rear hem first and also see if any holes are blown though where those tabs are spot welded to the raised spots. Common issue. And look for swelling inside at the rear hem which is indicative of advancing corrosion.

Thanks for the help.  My biggest question now is about this square shaped opening with the small hole above it.  Is it part of the last owners install of the rear spoiler or are they factory holes?  What are the for?  Trunk light? Thanks




116  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 67 Deck Lid repair and ID help on: August 31, 2011, 06:32:04 PM
I Will be removing the rear spoiler the previous owner installed on my car and taking ithe lid to a body shop to repair the holes and was hoping someone would be able to tell me which lid I have and/or provide any pictures of what the same lid would look like without a spoiler.  

I want to make sure they repair all holes but not any that should be there.  I am sure all the exterior holes should be filled (except those for the emblems) but I am not sure about the underside?

My car has an 01C build date if that matters...

Thanks in advance!












117  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Mild Modifications / Number/Size of Shims after adding Moog CA Shafts? on: August 31, 2011, 12:40:48 PM
Just swapped my original upper control arm shaft to Moog K5250 shaft kit on my 67 for safety reasons.  I know these shafts add additional camber but is there a starting number and size of shims I should use to get me to the alignment shop?

Don't know about the quality of their backing plates, but inline tube sells new ones.  I asked about their rear drum brake kit and the said there stuff is made in the USA.  Maybe an option???

You might have misunderstood if it's the same recent post by Jeff where he asked about the ferule on the end vs. the NOS he purchased and then another member happened to have a Paragon line (for his Corvette) that he posted a picture of how the ferule was or seemed correct but the line length was not discussed to know if they have something adaptable. Is that the post your referring to?

Yep, that is it.  My bad...

Thanks!

That's a C3 Corvette oil line - are you sure it's the same length as the Camaro line that the Camaro vendors sell? You'll also need the grommet where the line passes through the firewall.

That is what I wasnt sure about, I just read a few old posts with guys recommending/posting a link to Paragon.  Thanks
