 I don't think you can do any better than GM Reconditioning Black as far as matching the correct gloss level and texture goes.

Bob,

 I checked the 67 4B LOS and it looks exactly like the pictures Steve posted with one exception, Steve's has a lone number 3 and mine is the number 2. Otherwise the manufacturer and '833' are the same and relative to each others position.
 As for rubber vs plastic, I would say a flexible plastic. If I had to order one and the choice was rubber or plastic, I would select plastic.

I suspect a stuck open power valve in the carb. I had that happen after sitting for a few years. Unless you have a collapsed lifter (usually permanent) I would approach it from the KISS principle and check the Q-Jet.

 There is a power valve in the Q-jet that controls the mixture in the primary side. You can get to it by removing only the top portion of the carb. If it is stuck then you can either have a very rich (stuck open) or very lean (stuck closed) condition relative to the throttle position depending on which way the brass piston is sticking in the bore.
  Does the exhaust have a rich smell or burn your eyes?

LI Corvettes ( http://http://licorvette.com/ ) has one that looks like the same and for a lot less.
They have plastic and rubber versions.

Plastic - 39-25B  $1.50
Rubber- 39-25C  $10.00
Their search page: http://www.parts123.com/parts123/yb.dll?userwatch~dynamicSearchPage~cadeikba%20?
 I don't know if there is any printing on the back. It may be worth a call to them.

Hi Ed,

  What month is on the trim tag? I wonder if these are week numbers and it would be interesting to see if they come prior to the car build month.
I know parts like these can linger in a bin well past the car build date but it's just a curious long shot.

Hi Bob,
  The only markings are within the plug cavity and out of the 4 original ones I have the letter/number changed.
Here are the pictures. There are no other numbers on the plugs. I suspect the letter/number combo is a mold number.
Hope this helps,

Mike

 I assume you mean the one in the carpet?
Here is a picture.

Bob,

  The 2 on top of the cowl near the cowl vent panel sides? I can get a pic later today and look at what markings are there.

where were they located mike? My mom grew up in bushwick and there was a Chevy dealership across the street on bushwick ave. they were out of business by the time the riots hit in 77.
Hi Buddy,
 The address was:  Spielman Motor Sales Co., Inc. 220-24 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn. N. Y.
It was on the corner of Greenpoint Ave. and McGuinness Blvd.

  I got mine today and the dealer was Spielman Motor Sales in Brooklyn, NY. I looked up the name in Google and got back news paper articles with that car dealers name going back to 1929 and many in the 1940's. Last records I can find for them are dated 1975 for pension trustee counts. Looking at Google maps I see there is a Key Foods shopping plaza on the property  Cry
 Oh well.....at least I now know who it was that sold the car. Looking at Google maps, you can 'drive' around the roads and see the other properties. I told my wife at least I can see the original buildings that are still standing there and the roads my car once drove down. That in itself was a strange feeling.

Got my Report today.  Not the news I was hoping for, just added another piece to the puzzle.
What was the news, Mike?

I'm doing this from memory but I believe there is a rectangular shape box under a shrink wrapped type cover. In that box is a thermo switch that was supposed to open if the motor mechanics jammed (normally ice conditions). If the motor doesn't move with the steps mentioned by Janobyte then you will have to bypass the thermo switch to see if the problem is bad motor windings.

Something is wrong with the link. I get a 404 - not found message.
