Odd. The tranny is C0R08N. Any chance this is a 1960 tranny? Is there a VIN stamp on the tranny somewhere? 1970?

Mine was also a non-posi, 3:31 Gear, we held onto those gears, but upgraded to a late model 3:73 posi.  The tranny needed to be rebuilt, so I had than completely redone, adding a shift-kit and manual valve body, turning the original torque converter to a 2,500 stall. (it actually had already been converted to a manual valve body sometime ago.  The engine was basically a block and heads that had also been rebuilt at some point in the past.  2.02 valves were put in the heads.  We had triple/angle valve seats cut in and had it bored 30 over.  Taking some liberties to make it a little fun.

The oil filler tube is chrome.

When you asked about the pan, were you talking of the tranny or oil pan?  Does K008 mean that mine was 8th for the day and your was 252nd?

What does H6 and H16 mean? I have a K286 on my engine with what looks to be a 1 centered directly above it, 389265 on it, 12 66,  VI230MV and 7L132252 all stamped in various locations.

What color should my firewall be? Same as body color? (1967 camaro) heater box too?

Thanks a million!  My LOS body scheduling code is K008.  Didn't really understand what that told me... the car had the beige vinyl top with gold deluxe interior, black bumble bee stripe.  Console,w/o gauges. 

It does have the original 12-bolt and powerglide.  The original engine was blown in the early 70's but they kept the original chrome valve covers, air cleaner, fill tube, etc...

I bought it from a state congressman in Montana who was personal friends of the 2nd owner who had purchased it in 1969 from the original owner.  It has not been on the road since 1987.

We found an 'MV' coded SS350 (for powerglides and smog) out of northern california with a date stamp of 31 Dec 66, which I have had rebuilt already.  I guess that is pretty close...

I thought that 11B must have been for 1966, but thought that the 117144 out of the VIN was a lot of cars to have been built by then.  I am assuming I will be able to find the VIN on the tranny and rearend too?

How many Camaros were built in 67?

Thanks for the welcome to the site!  I have normally raced these things.  This is my 6th '67 and 8th 1st gen Camaro.  My last one just sold on Barrett-Jackson this past year, after the guy I sold it to, a buddy of my dad's took it to the next level of restoration.  It was a clone RS/SS 4spd car. 

This is my first serious restoration.  Thanks again!

Thanks! Quick follow-up.  What tire size do you recommend for the 14x6 rims (SS car)?
111  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / trim tag build month on: June 18, 2012, 08:43:05 PM
My vin is 124377L117144 and my build month/week was 11B (1967 Camaro). Would thief have been 1966 or 1967 for the build year? How many overall Camaros were built in 67? Is there anyway to find out the breakout of the cars? I have an rsss, sirrea fawn with beige vinyl top. Tryinhg to fibd out how rare the combo is.
112  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / rims on: June 18, 2012, 05:39:13 PM
I have a 67 camaro rs/ss with front drum brakes. Are these steel wheels with hub caps or ralleys? I have found conflicting guidance, some stating that due to the rsss it came with ralliss regardless. Thoughts?

114  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / 1967 Camaro Vinyl tops on: June 18, 2012, 04:10:40 PM
My 67 Camaro is an RS/SS Sierra Fawn color with beige vinyl top.  I can't seem to locate anyone who sells the original '67 beige vinyl top. Most standard places lump in '67 with the white tops of '68 and '69 Camaros.

Any ideas as I am trying to restore.

thanks.
115  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Rim size for 67 RS/SS. on: May 09, 2011, 06:17:32 PM
Does this mean the car had hubcaps instead of beauty rings and center caps? Where would one find out if they had disk brakes to start? Don't think this info is provided on the cowl tag is it? Thanks, Matt
