I decided to go ahead and create a new thread because I think this needs more research.  Here is what we have so far.


George's (NoYenko's) trunk lid on his 69 that is thought to be for a 67:

Also I wonder if one of these is a Firebird lid?

Can you make out the stamp on the inside of the lid?  Lower center?

To add to this; I have 2 take-offs that are both 68's.  Not sure if they were sbc or bbc but you can see the holes in relation to the D90 & 91 stripes.

Ill also I am not sure when the cut-offs were for the changes to the lids.  Might be able to narrow it down if we have some dates from original lid cars.  FWIW, I didnt know that 67's got the 2nd version of the lid (like the 68's) due to 67's not getting spoilers.  I also thought it was 67 - 8 - 9 versions of the lids...??..  But I have started seeing very early 9's with the 68 style lids.  But not many and I can not state that they were original to the cars..


NOTE:

Maybe this should be split into 2 threads.??...

can someone post the pic of the earlier 69 lid please

Here is a pic of the lid on my 67 which I believe to be the original lid.  This is due to not having the oval cutout in the outer layer for the movement of the emblem when a spoiler was added.  There is also a stamp on the inside of the lid, in the lower center when the lid is open.  Just cant make out what mine says.








Here is a pic of my original lid on my 68.  Hard to see but the tabs are there and no circular cutout in the out layer.



My fathers original 68 lid.

Ok so we have early 67 lids, late 67 - early 69, then late 69
85  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Frederick Nationals ... on: June 27, 2014, 10:37:24 PM
From my experience, the 67 lids have the tabs on the underside of the lip with no provisions for a spoiler.  68 & early 69 is the same with the tabs but have the provisions for an addition of a spoiler.  Late 69 does not have the tabs but has the circular cutout in the outer layer of the skin on the inside of the lid.  If anyone has any info different please jump in. 


Later 69 lid

I would too enjoy coming.  Not sure if I would bring anything.  But definitely love to come and meet everyone; see and hear the stories.
87  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Do You Still Have Your First Car? on: June 27, 2014, 06:43:46 PM
I stole this idea from another forum and thought might try it here to see if any else has their first car.  Here is my story on my first car.


I know I do not post on very much but I thought I would add to this thread.  The car sold new at my local Chevy dealer to a guy here in town in early 1970 (late build 69).  His neighbor bought it from him in '72 and she drove it until 1978 when she pulled out in front of someone and was t-boned..  The car sat until my father was talking to a guy and he was telling him about a '79 Camaro that might be for sale.  We didnt think much about it but I thought that might be an OK first car.  When my father talked to the guy again; he said did I say 79??  I meant 69...  At that point, I was in.  We went to look at it in Nov of 1989 and brought it home.  After several hours on a frame machine, body work the car was repainted in Rallye Green (I hated Frost Green at the time; wish I wouldnt have been so ignorant at the time).  Once the car was finished and road worthy we took it back to Mrs. Brockett (2nd owner) for her to see the car could be fixed (when she wrecked the car the insurance totaled the car and she just bought it back thinking she might get it fixed one day).  When we pulled up she came out and first things out of her mouth were; "I see you put one of those "humps" on the hood..  And you added that "flip" on the trunk.."  Needless to say, she was happy to see the car again on the road.  When I was a senior in high school I pulled the 307, powerglide & 10 bolt out and slide in a mild built 350, Muncie M20 & a 12 Bolt with 3.55 gears.  I still have the car and once I finish my other projects it will return as a LS turbo powered drag radial car one of these days.

Yes I thought I was sooo cool with my new car..

Now the finished product as of 2005.

Post pictures of your trunk lid.  I think I can help with the differences.

I cant remember 100% on a q-jet but I want to say it opens to about 2/3s the way.  It should only be open about a 1/4 inch when choke is on.  If memory serves me.
