Not sure how accurate this is but this is what I have been told over the years.  GM always shutdowns during the July time frame (and still do).  Since there were other cars that were built at NOR & LOS along with the stamping dies discovered being incorrect for the 70 model they had to back pedal due to the led time to have another die made causing the lengthening of the 69 production life..  Im sure this caused suppliers to have to build back up enough units to cover the extended run which in turned caused a slowing of production during August.

Hopefully someone can confirm whether or not this is the truth.

4 piston calipers I assume??

Here are a set of 14 x 6 reverse and 14 x 10 on my (father's) 68 with 4 piston calipers.  He ground the calipers to get them to clear but you could use a 5/16" spacer to make them work in the front. F70 up front and M50 on the rear.

Some wheels and tires on my 67.  Single piston calipers and they clear just fine.  These are mid 70's vintage Cragars..  I can get you the backspacing later this week.

I have the base from the L78 but my father broke the jacking mech back many years ago (used to break down tires off rims using the jack and car bumper) and replaced it with one from a 70 or 71 car IIRC..

Might try this...

Reliable Carriers

I would like to trailer the L78 to the show in Nov but will have to wait and see how it goes..

That is truly unbelievable artwork and craftsmanship..  I would be curious to know the man hours in this project..

I wouldn't put a 302 in anything by choice. Realize several of the TA teams reputedly cheated and ran stroked 302's (aka LT1 350's).
The *only* reason Chevrolet made the 302 is because of TA rules. When the rules allowed it, Chevy went to the LT1.
A little balancing and you'll have more power and same rpm....

23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Which Throttle Rod is Correct for 67 RS/SS 350? on: March 26, 2015, 11:30:00 AM
Try flipping the rubber portion to the other side of the throttle lever and keep the plastic to the inside and see if that helps.  Just a thought.

I always use the hole just below.  May not be correct but it works.

24  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Trunk Lid Identification on: March 25, 2015, 08:53:28 PM
That does help.  Thanks Darrell.

The stamp is in the lower center portion of the inner layer portion of the lid.

Pic link should work now...

I have been very fortunate, my father collects and restores vintage flathead fords so I have had access to tools garages and knowledge for my entire life. After learning to use a screw driver at 3 years old I removed every switch plate and door knob I could reach and met my dad at the door with a hand full of screws. My dad has a picture of me with my baby blanket in a 1940 Ford taking everything apart.

James, sounds like you and I grew up under the similar circumstances.  Growing up my father worked 2nd and 3rd shift and during the day would work on Camaros and other musclecars and we would always go out to junk yards and I would be handed flat head, phillips, 7/16, 1/2, 9/16" wrenches and told to got get bolts and screws while he pulled the larger parts..  I was his right hand man.  2006 I lost him and damn do I miss talking and hanging out with him.  But those memories will never be forgotten.

I would believe that this is an L78 car from what I have seen.  Also looks like the big center link too.  If it isnt then someone went in to detail changing out parts that most would not have known to change.  Just my $0.02


How was the fan shroud held on on the top?  Also what is the radiator tag say and the rad tank codes?

Very very cool!!
28  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: 1969 Pace Restoration - Pin Stripes on: March 23, 2015, 02:31:13 PM
The 2 pace cars that my father restored back in the late 90's & early 2000s the pin stripe stopped at the fender and door edge.

29  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: 69 CAMARO PARTS WHAT ARE THEY WORTH? on: March 20, 2015, 12:19:10 PM
$3K is a not bad deal for someone local. A person could make $500-1K from what I see there.  Just my $0.02
