Wow! Someone was quite the metal crafter in the day. There are not many around capable of doing that sort of work.

Thanks for the followup.

Karman,
I'm curious about the rear fender flares. Were they steel, fiberglass, or a combination? They looked to have stayed in pretty good shape.

Your car is coming along at a good pace, and the work looks excellent. I'm anxious to meet you and see the "green" car in Monterey!

It's not real clear in your photos, but it appears your crankshaft pulley may not be fully seated. Make sure the back of the pulley is completely flush against the damper.

Ken,

I don't recognize the first item of yours at all. Some kind of an airbox for two-4bbls but for what car/application, I don't know. Maybe somebody else has an idea.


A center to center measurement of the carb studs will help determine the application.

Thanks for taking the measurement Ken. That measurement has put a lot of hearsay questions and comments to bed in the past. Much appreciated!

A couple additional performance dealer ads from Car Craft, January 1969. I remember how common it was to see Camaro misspelled. Nowadays, my computer's auto spell check likes to change Camaro to "Camry". Of all things, HA!

An Ad from January 1969 CarCraft Magazine.  The majority of the suspension bolts on my AMX were of this make. They held up well throughout the years. Supertanium bolts were quite popular in the Southern Ca. area during this time frame.

When you ordered it, how did you specify the color to the dealer?

In 1985, I was shopping for a new Chevy pick up in a shade of green. No greens were offered in the RPO list that year. My regular dealer said no problem, if I was able to wait for a special order. He brought out a large GM book, flipped open to a page of green paint chips and said pick the color you want.  I made my choice and did have to wait for an extended time to get my truck. I happened to see my truck on the carrier going down the freeway being delivered to my dealer. It was a standout next to the other drab earth tones offered that year. 
Remember this was in 1985, computerized ordering and such and I got what I wanted. I'm sure GM was much more  flexible in 69.
I still have my green pickup by the way!

The 'wild' Chrysler colors (Plum Crazy, LemonLime, etc) were not introduced until the 1970 model year.  I don't recall a 'purple' factory color from any of the manufacturers prior to 1970

Let's not forget the 1967 Camaro available with Royal Plum, which is considered a purple.
25  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Maintenance / Re: M55A oil pump question revisited. on: April 03, 2013, 01:25:38 PM
It is my understanding the M55A pump went back to the heavy casting in early 2009, so with any current stock you should be fine. They do use powdered metal gears instead of billet gears though. The PM gears should not give you any problems unless you're dealing with a max effort engine.
Go for it!

 The flywheel shows the impression left by the crankshaft flange. The shape shown is normally associated with a 3 inch stroke ,302 crankshaft.

Also some inter departmental memo from August 1967 regarding the crossram set up.

68crossram, Thank you for sharing the very informative letter. I'm working on a little project right now and this letter appears to have some data noted that I have been researching. I would greatly appreciate if you could post and share the remainder of the letter.
Thanks again!

The Cars Mag story on the Mini Mauler  sure gets the blood pumping!
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' 302 CE numbers on: January 21, 2013, 09:23:04 PM
A question concerning warranty replacement blocks.
 Did GM require a bare block replacement to originate through the sources in order to be stamped with the appropriate CE?C markings? What would prevent, or was it possible for a dealer to replace a bare block under warranty with maybe an unmarked bare block sitting in their parts inventory?
At the time did statutes require the replacement block to be stamped by the dealer's service department?
Thanks,
Bob

The AMC parts being re introduced are a welcomed surprise. It is a good sign that there is a continual interest in our cars.  Jon, you are correct about the difficulty in finding some of the obscure parts of the day. With some of these re introduced parts coming to market, we might see a few more cars out being used, and not just shown.
     I wouldn't expect to see too many Cross Rams being sold to AMC owners, at least not to the extent they are sold to the Z/28 owners, but those that do commit, will definitely have a unique and fun addition.  Maybe mike343sharpstick  should consider adding his Trans-am hood to the mix!
      Thanks Mike for the good news.

That's a great looking 67 Jon!  I always have preferred the unusual colors. The Mountain Green exterior probably prevented quite a few tickets in its day.
I hope she is still around in good hands.
Thanks for sharing the story and photos.
