196  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: What rare part would you like to see a top quality reproduction produced? on: January 06, 2012, 05:41:06 PM
The small end pieces for the top trim on a fold down seat, but I doubt there's much demand.  Also air cleaner housing decals with the correct part number for K19 or K24 equipped cars.

Do you have the original block, or are you building a "date correct" engine?  You should be comparing the engine build date (stamped, and assuming it is not a fake/restamp) with the head casting dates.  Obviously the heads need to be cast earlier than when the engine was assembled.  This old thread and links found within may help, I think it has generally acceptable date spans:

Go to the top of the page, click on the Advanced Search term to the right of the Search: box, and run a search using something like firewall paint or underhood paint.  You'll get many threads like this one:

You'll find that the firewall blackout paint process was not an exact art.

Interesting. So only the early SS 350's had the "SS-350" Gas cap. A friend had one back in the 70's with that cap, so it must have been an early car.

Correct, also the center grille badge.  I'm not sure if it also carried over to the center cap on standard steering wheels.

I read somewhere the early SS's, (before BB's started in late Dec.) only had the SS Emblem front and rear.  They started the SS 350 Emblem sometime after the BB cars went into production.

You are correct Mike. HERE'S where you read it.

At this time, the only SS was the SS-350 model, and the badges on the car read "SS-350". When the SS-396 was introduced in January 1967, the badges were changed for all SS models to read "SS".

Ed, isn't what Mike asked totally opposite of actual 67 "SS 350" badging and thus incorrect? (early ones used it, once BBs introduced all the SS models used same "SS" fuel cap and grille emblem)

Did it have the SS 350 fuel cap?

Looks like red showing through, under the blue steering wheel?  I need to start going to yard sales if they have rear foldowns for sale!

That address is in Sharonville, roughly 10 miles north of Norwood and just inside the 275 beltway.  Looks like a large industrial type building or warehouse with numerous bay doors.  Hard to tell age but not a new structure.  The company there now is Nisbett Brower, looks like they're in construction or architecture, building industry etc.  Number is 513-563-1111, maybe they know the building's history.

I googled the Covington KY white pages and got a Daniel R Dilts, 1207 Sunset Road, Covington KY 41011, (859) 261-0385, age 60-64 but who knows how accurate that is.  Looks like a stone's throw from the original address, and just across the Ohio River from Cincy.  Sometimes you get lucky  Smiley  
204  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro Deck Lid Luggage Rack and its Accessory Ski Rack on: December 13, 2011, 11:04:17 AM
Re question 3 - In the past year I've seen 2, maybe 3 NOS accessory ski racks listed on eBay.  Can't recall the sell price, likely several hundred dollars.  NOS luggage racks go for around $1200 on ebay dependent on whether all the parts are there.  They also show up a few times a year.  I'll see if I captured any pics which show the part number on the box.  I've no idea on the correct part numbers by year and application.

Here's an older thread, usually it's an X66 behind the rear seat to match the Norwood "X" code on the trim tag for SS396.  Maybe they got a little lax since the two digits are always the same, or it was at the beginning of their use.

Here's "X" codes explained

Do we know how many production days were in a week? Was it Monday thru Friday, Were car assembled on Saturdays and Sundays?

Here's an old thread, Monday through Friday, two 8 hour shifts.  You can also use the advanced search and learn about related things like scheduled plant holidays, effects of strikes, etc.  I think it was mentioned in another thread that in certain circumstances they would schedule Saturday work, but it was generally not a common practice.

207  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Exhasut Manifold bolt washers on: November 08, 2011, 07:29:49 PM
The middle ports did not have washers under the bolts.  The outer/end ports of the manifolds got the thick spacer washer, then a french lock, then the bolt.  The tabs on the french lock were bent over the bolt hex head to prevent loosening.  The order is important because you cannot properly bend the locks if the washer is in between it and the hex bolt head.

Here's pics of both the thick washers and french locks for SBC and BBs.  Factory locks were steel, most repops are stainless.

I can't recall exactly, but if you start adding a/c brackets etc to the manifolds you need to check your AIM to see if the french lock was still used or left off.

You can check out colors here, enter make and year next to the red arrow and the PPG paint chip sheet with codes will be displayed.  Just look for the same code under the various makes.

Is Burnished Brown the same color as Cappuccino on the 69 Pontiacs? I had a 69 GTO with the Cappuccino Brown and It was very nice.

Appears to be the same as 69 Pontiac Expresso Brown.  Didn't see a standard Cappuccino color for 69 Pontiac, Buick used the Burnished Brown name and Olds used Sable.  Cadillac did not use that color in 69.
210  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: what is unique or special about the 1111480 distributor? on: October 27, 2011, 12:50:08 PM
For a distributor you should be looking at engine assembly date, at least a week prior according to JohnZ on this older thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=3868.0

If you have a 1111168 (67 L48) in your car now, those are fairly rare and bring decent money to someone looking for a particular date.
