I spoke with the original owner of a 67 Camaro that he bought new. He believes that the space saver spare he showed me came in the trunk. From what I have read, no space saver was available in 67. The rim is a 14x6 ralley with the bf Goodrich 7.35 x 14  tire, the rim is silver on the front and black on the back with the silver over spray and the original micro wheel weight. Keep in mind this retired gm executive raced this car from the beginning and it has never been inflated. Can you remount a space saver tire? The only markings on the wheel are the DG next to the valve stem. I have never seen a ralley rim on a space saver tire

Evapo rust is the best thing I have ever seen or used. I leave it in overnight and it looks like new.

Could not agree more. I tested it back to back in my vette with first the wide ratio and 4.11' broke it on the first pass of a 2 day race, changed it out in the pits with the close ratio and lost  3/10ths and 3 mph. I have a real nice liberty built m21 fine spline with a steel mid plate and bushed case that I would love to trade for a wide ratio. When I rebuilt the wide ratio, I went with the m22 wide ratio and the maserio Italian gears. 3.73 gears and m21's are not first gear friendly. I am now running a 4.30, all I need at a stop light is 1st and 4th, 2 speeds are nice on the street.

This was a fresh restoration, so I had nothing to compare to.

Just put them on my Copo . The fit was perfect, no problem at all.

General Discussion / 69 mono leaf service pack spring?
« on: August 31, 2011, 11:37:50 PM »
I have a mono leaf spring that measures 2 1/4 wide at the center and 2 3/4 at each end. The only markings on the spring are the number 3 on one end and the letter G on the top. It was given to me by an old time drag racer and tells me it was a service pack spring for drag racing. I am running my Copo on the f70/14 Goodyear polyglas tires . Has anybody heard of such a thing? The 5 leaf spring in my car is of unknown origin and I am having to run a 1 inch lowering block to get a decent stance. The car will not 60 foot, 2.20.  I run the car in pure stock and cannot run cal tracks or other bars. Any ideas out there?

General Discussion / Copo wheel backspacing
« on: July 20, 2011, 10:54:51 PM »
Did the 14x7 Copo XT wheels come with 4inch backspacing? Will 4.25 inch backspacing and F70-14 not rub with a stock ride height car? What about G70-14?The only 14x7 repops come in 4.25 bs. I have searched the archives and found nothing on this!

William, thanks for the info.the 20 Copo cars you mentioned that went to Emmert, are you talking zl1 cars or 9561 steel copos? Do records exist as to what dealers got what quantities of 9561 cars. What about production numbers by month? Any idea of the ratio of chrome trim to nom trim 9561's

Emmertt was about 4 miles from my house and I am looking for any information and material on Emmert Chevrolet.I really want an original license plate frame or dealer tag. One of the old timers that hangs out at the shop remembers the Copo camaros and that a few of them were stolen right out of the lot.he does remember that they did have a Cortez silver Copo at one time, hence I am looking to use the home town dealer for my car.
