I agree, Mike Eddy is a great guy. He even helps those of us that don't have a car at the event yet.
Oh Ya, thanks again for the tour Mike.

There's one on Ebay too; with lots of detailed photos...


That car is a "tribute" as it states in the ad twice. It will get no closer than the spectator parking lot. Grin
Very sad that the seller tries to use Mr. Dick Guldstrand's name but can't spell it correctly. Cry

I clearly see the cast iron center section and the axle tube; doesn't look like a Ford rear to me.

The rear cover does look odd though.

Also note worthy is the 67/ 68-9 single leaf rear shock plate. If he was so concerned about weight/air flow why is the parking brake cable bracket still evident on the floor pan? The front of the leaf spring also wraps in the opposite direction than a production spring.

Looks like a GM Harrison oil cooler behind that Cougar grill Lips Sealed

All 68-9 Firebird rear axles I have seen have the same large impression in the top of the axle tube just above the spring perch area as shown in the picture above. This appears to be to give the rear end more movement before it hit the rubber stops mounted on the frame rail. The 67 Firebird rears do not have this impression. The center section also has the round mounts for the bushings to mount the upper control arms used with a coil spring application. These are left empty on the Firebird applications. I do not see these in the pictures so either they were cut off or the center cast section is from another application. If the carrier has a 12 bolt ring gear then that is what I would suspect.

The standard Firebird used the smaller 4 bolt pattern to mount the backing plate, same as the Camaro. My guess is that is why they fabricated their own mounts. Since the standard Firebird used the retainer style axle bearings the axle tube does not have the same "dip" as seen in the standard Camaro rear ends. The "service package" JL-8 rear had the larger diameter axle bearings and thus did not have the "dip" near the end of the tube Grin. Both production and service package Camaro JL-8 rears utilized the larger bolt patten because they were adapting the Corvette brakes. Measurements from Bruce will tell us more.

Thank you Bruce for showing us some truly rare any more Cool

Cool shelf, but certainly NOT the "nice rack" that I was expecting to see Sad

I seem to recall this same auction from several years ago.

Needs a JL-8 rear on the bottom to complete the display.

I seem to recall a story about one of the 200S/Daisy/Coke bottle magnesium wheels breaking Sad on one of the Mustangs and causing severe damage as well as losing the race.

COOL, another cross ram engine with the aluminum valve covers and perhaps Stahl headers. Grin

They mounted the coil just like I did when I first installed a cross ram back in the early 90's. Cool This will clear either original air cleaner base. However, the studs are missing from both carbs so they may not have used an air cleaner . Shocked

Wonder where that hose from the PCV valve goes? Appears they also used a mechanical fuel pump.

Hello Steve and Welcome,

I love seeing the Camaro's from your part of the world.

I have been watching the discussion about the "Bob Jane" 69 Camaro on your website as well. Cool
