Mark,
Some people like 'em, some don't, but I'm happy to have all 5 of mine on the L78 X66 12A barn car.

Hope your using the X66 term to describe your car, and not saying its on your Dec 68 12A cowl tag. Shocked


Mark,
That's exactly what he is doing..  Sometimes it's just easier to call it that when describing..

Yep it had the dog dish caps with painted rims.  Still have the rims somewhere in the collection of parts but dad sold the caps to a guy who had a COPO or a clone can't remember which.

Not 100% sure just yet.  We need more data points from original cars.

Lol that is funny.  Billy said he used to see her in it.  She would drive it up to Dix's Food Mart and get her groceries.  When we had finished it we took it over to her to see it and she said; "I see you put one of those humps on the hood (cowl hood) and a flip on the back (spoiler).  Only regret I have was not painting it back Frost Green but I was young and dumb..  Oh well, itll go back that color one day..

Line up of 67, 68, and 69 Z's. Not too common a sight I wouldn't think.

Whos 68?  Would love to see more pics of that car.
801  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stahl Step Headers ('69 Z28) on: July 30, 2013, 05:39:32 PM
Honestly I am not aware of any dealers for Stahl.  Due to the fact that they custom build headers as well.  Thats not to say there isnt dealers; Im just not aware of any.  If I were a header company I would want the end user dealing directly with me to make sure the header fit the application and setup due to so many options and combinations.  Most people do not realize just how complicated headers can become with other aftermarket parts and components.  If you have aftermarket heads, mid plates and/or running a non conventional transmission then usually dealing with a company that is willing to build a header or knows their headers will work with certain components then that is your best bet to reduce the frustration factor.  I have built a few custom headers and I applaud the guys that have this ability cause I have seen some headers that are pure works of art.  Not to mention the fact that they also produce horsepower.


I personally would only run stainless if I were buying headers if I was planning on keeping the car for a long period of time.  They will last a very long time.  Only thing that really fatigues on stainless are the welded  areas but that is usually on headers that are supporting a turbo.  Most other applications they will last longer than the engine.  lol

What is your overall expectations with the car?  What do you want to ultimately do with it?  Street/strip or pure strip?
802  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Stahl Step Headers ('69 Z28) on: July 30, 2013, 06:14:04 AM
well I am actually inquiring for another vehicle, I have a 64 C/10 with a 327 that is a little over 400 hp, I have some headman headers on it right now but they are only 1 1/2 primary tubes. The motor revs up a little higher than 8k, so similar to the 302. It would be nice to pick up a set of those headers for it. The price on the website is like $1200 though.....a bit much for me. the hedman were a little under $400.


 I'm guess that 400hp is flywheel? A 1 5/8" primary tube header would work fine with your setup.  5-10 peak hp is not going to be noticed unless you have access to a chassis dyno, your car is consistent at the track or a very fine tuned buttometer..  As for the reverse lockout I do not know of any long tube header where it would be able to be used.  Just my experience & couple pennies worth..

There is nothing wrong with a 307/power glide..  ;-)

My 69 was the same setup.  Bought it from a 90 yr old woman in 1989..  It has/had ps, pb, AC, console & floor shifter.  Of course I've changed it to a 350, 4 speed, 12 bolt..  Lol.   Oh it too had the DX1 stripe as well.  It's been a great little grandma grocery getter car.  ;-)

Not sure if you meant for this to be in the "Test Drive" section.


I have wondered this as well.  I know my uncles 69 Chevelle came with a very short Phillips #2 with a wooden handle..  I wish I had got pics of it last week but didn't..  I have this screwdriver but have not idea of its origin.  It is wooden but there isn't any print or stampings anywhere on it.  Also I would have thought the screwdriver would have been a flathead..

Interesting to see a black lid with chrome valve covers.  I always thought all lids were chrome on Camaros with open element.?.  

Mike did you say your 04B car has the same script as your 05B car?  Also is it a black lid also?

Ed is your car LOS?

Ok how about we do this to maybe keep a log.

Thanks Ed & Steve.  I'd like to see an earlier build '68 or a 67 if possible.  Also the 4 dimples on the F A I've noticed are not on the reproduction ones.  Guessing they were from an assembly process of installing it onto the base.?.  Also there is a "GM" stamped on the one I posted.  Is this consistent with the others?

Maybe I should have included open element Z28 cars as well..
