Back in the late 1980's or early 1990's,  I called the Chevrolet dealership in Daytona Beach, FL inquiring about historical records as I was doing some research on an early MO engine block that I have.   I talked to several people there but got lucky with an older guy that gave me the telephone number of a lady that was retired that used to work at, what was then, Spence Chevrolet.

While she had no idea where any of the old records might be or if they even still existed,  she did remember her early years working there.   When I explained to her about me trying to make a Smokey Yunick connection to the engine block,  she said she couldn't help me with that but she did remember some strange things going in regard to Smokey Yunick during those years.    She remembered wooden crates coming in from Chevrolet to Smokey Yunick's attention.   Spence Chevrolet would call Smokey's shop to come pick the parts up.  Also,  the invoices would have their dealer code with a dash 13 on them.   Any invoices with a dash 13, she wasn't supposed to pay Chevrolet.   She said it wouldn't matter if the dash 13 was there or not, because all of the invoices stated  "Misc. Parts"  in the description column and the unit cost was zero.

Hi Simon,

This was discussed here in July of 2012.  You can find that information here.   http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=8111.0    I hope this helps you.

While not perfectly streetable,  this build would make a great pattern for someone trying to replicate an early TransAm Camaro...................

Thanks Jon and Chad for your replies..............that did answer a lot of questions I had.

I have been following a build for a 1967 Camaro  STX autocross car being built by a guy named Jason Rhoades from So Cal.  From what i have been able to gather from his build, I find it hard to believe it was as technical back then as it is now.   If you would like to follow his build, you can find it here  http://www.rhoadescamaro.com/build/  Jason has put a lot of thought into suspension and powertrain while doing this build.

Again, many thanks for your help.

First, I would like to say this a great addition to the CRG forum.   After all, transam racing is what created what we now know as the Z/28.

As this is my first post here, I would like to say that I was in the hobby from 1988-1994 and had acquired 3 Z/28s in that time period along with a few other Chevrolet muscle cars.  Mostly,  reliving dreams of cars that I couldn't have when I was a teenager.   I sold all of my cars in 1994 to get into racing.   However, I still have an early (cast date 12-16-66, build date 1-5-67) 1967 MO block that I have had since the late 80s.   I've recently renewed my search trying to find the car that goes with my block.

I have looked, in the past, for rules pertaining to  allowed and/or required modifications to factory cars in 1967 to be able to compete in the transam series.  Would anyone happen to know where this information might be or could,perhaps, scan and post here?   

Again, thank you Jon for starting this discussion.  I am sure many will enjoy the information gathered here.
