 Did Chevy use actual stencils back then or was the tape applied free hand using some guide stencil. I ask this because even though the assembly manual lists stencil, why would they show gap measurements between the thin and wide lines if a stencil was used. In my mind I would think one stencil would have the 3 stripes in a common base for lay, press, peel back and spray so all the dimensions would be automatically in place. I understand having starting edge references though.
Anyhow...I was able to reach up top of the lift and take a closeups of the stripe end on the 67 4B LOS and as you can see it ends at the bumper top with the bottom edge following the fender curve so the front rise showing upwards gives the illusion the bumper is curved downwards (notice the edge bleeding under the front thin stripe...so much for mass production). Excuse the dry and crazed original paint....the old girl is showing her age. As much as am hesitant I may document every inch and then just restore.

 They don't have dates but some vendors are offering that service to etch a date in (so I am told).

Daniel,
  What is that the tire is sitting in as shown in the first picture?

 Thanks for looking.
I am talking to a vendor who is making exact copy tags for Pontiac and he will be looking at the cost to get a 'U' font. Otherwise the tag body edges are exact for 67.

I have an original 67 4N LOS car with the original stripe if interested. I can post pictures.

Seeing the starter listed as a separate item in the assembly manual I would assume the date may very well be past the engine assembly date and before the body date on the cowl tag.

I have 1 or 2 67 tags What code do you need
I need a UN (3013684) and if you have a UO (3013685) that would great.

 Has anyone seen an accurate reproduction 67 radiator tag with the stepped edges instead of the straight edge commonly seen for sale?
I don't mind paying good money as long as the reproduction is accurate but so far I haven't seen a correct copy.

Thanks,
Mike

Looks like we are starting to get a good sample size to see what the transition period was.

Buddy (X77-69z28), what month and plant is your 67 with the brass fitting?

 The second picture of the 67 with the oil line is sure interesting. It has the rubber grommet. There has been a thread going around last year and it touched on when the switchover was from the metal firewall union to the rubber grommet ( http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=9493.0 ). The assembly manual shows around April-May 67. My 05B NOR has the rubber grommet. I'm surprised to see your 02C car has it.
  What is the "13" in the tunnel in the second picture?

Someone here had this similar problem last year and it turned out to be a misplaced wire in the front harness when he did some wire work.
Try doing a search and you should be able to find that thread.
 Good luck!
