The siamesed-bore 400 small-block was used in many Chevrolets, but was never used in a 1st-Gen Camaro; it didn't become available in full-size passenger cars until 1970. a "406" is a 400 with a .030" overbore.

Most likely there are similar markings on yours - they were applied on the raw metal panel in the Body Shop for options that required additional body-in-white operations over and above those required for a base car.

Jerry MacNeish's book has an appendix that describes Camaro component finishes in detail; they follow the same pattern as other GM cars of the era.

Rally wheels were included in the Z/28 package, and were available separately as RPO ZJ7. Z21 Style Trim was included in the Rally Sport option, and was available separately - it included the rocker blackout (except with dark colors), bright drip rail and wheel opening moldings, quarter louvers, headlight and taillamp accents, and fender and quarter pinstripes.

"DC" is a 15" x 6" '67 Corvette rally wheel; was also used on some '67 full-size station wagons; that one is a service replacement made in 1968.  Smiley

Here's the original ZL2 coil mounting on my 02D Z/28.  Smiley

John,

Any tricks involved? I have popped one side loose, but just put my foot through the floor trying to pop the passenger side. Would the build sheet be in any specific area, or "somewhere" on the bottom of the seat? I can pull the drivers side up part way, and don't see anything there. I would love to know what I have.

Thanks!

Tom

Nope, no tricks involved - just push the bottom of the seat frame rearward and up at the same time and it'll pop loose from the "hook" on the floor. Highly unlikely you'll find any paperwork under the rear seat.

Both the Assembly Manual and the Chassis Service Manual show the kickdown linkage adjustment procedure, which is pretty simple; follow it to the letter and your upshift/downshift points should be in the ball park, assuming you don't have internal problems in the transmission or vacuum leaks between the intake manifold and the modulator.
3864  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: powerglide shifting on: February 20, 2006, 01:15:28 PM
All of the '67 Camaro Powerglide upshift and downshift points/speeds are shown on page 7-35 of the 1967 Chassis Service Manual; if you don't have one, you should get one - the car is 40 years old, and no place you take it for service will have one. All the vendors have them.
3865  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: body panel numbers on: February 19, 2006, 10:13:32 AM
So would you be able to compare these dates with doors and hood to tell if the were replaced,or would they be pulled at random from there current stock at that time?

There wasn't a lot of inventory between the stamping plants and the assembly plants - racked stampings took up a lot of floorspace, and were racked so the parts didn't touch each other, so there were only about ten pieces per rack. There wouldn't be more than a couple of weeks' spread from one major panel to another on the same car.
3866  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Triple A Window sticker on: February 18, 2006, 02:29:47 PM
I had it laminated in heavy plastic (at Kinko's) and put it on a clipboard over the hood latch so spectators can see it without having to walk around the car.
3867  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: body panel numbers on: February 18, 2006, 02:26:12 PM
Those are "run numbers" from the Fisher Body stamping plants that supplied the panels; there's a letter that identifies the plant, followed by the week of production when the panel was stamped.
3868  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 67 SS350 Waterpump and Distrib on: February 18, 2006, 02:24:18 PM
The 326 water pump was only used on applications that had an aluminum intake with a bypass fitting at the front; if it has the upper boss with a plug in the hole, it's a service replacement.

I don't recall the precise masking/spraying differences, but the front sheet metal at Van Nuys was hung on a separate carrier immediately ahead of the body; the Paint Shop there was combined (the old Chevy Paint Shop was abandoned when GMAD assumed control of the plant). Norwood was the traditional Fisher/Chevrolet arrangement where Fisher painted the body in their Paint Shop, and Chevrolet painted the front sheet metal in their own separate Paint Shop.

The links don't work - Photobucket says the images aren't there any more.  Huh
