When I bought the car in July 1990 it had that tilt lever. If it is incorrect it was changed before then. The car came originally with the tilt steering per the Dec. 68 picture form original owner.
Huh Maybe different due to the deluxe interior? Does the plastic end match the signal lever? I'm not questioning the originality just curious. Someone out there must know or think they do. BTW Nice Car/Color Combo.

Wood on the wheel and on the dash...
Any idea what the tilt column release lever is from? Looks like Pontiac but the plastic is fluted. I thought Pontiac had smooth plastic.

The "bullet mirror" change out was very popular along with "Grant GT" steering wheels, "slot mags" or "Krager SS" rims, door and rear deck speakers, diamond tuck interior, "Hurst" shifters,"Gabrial Hi-Jackers", "Hooker Headers", "Moroso" chrome for under the hood and removing anything attached to the motor not needed for power. All added"improvements" for cruising town. Unfortunately a lot of the original parts went straight to the trash. Oh did I mention if you could afford paint and body work, adding rear fender flairs and removing those "hideous" factory stripes was a plus. And don't forget the "Isky" cam and "Holley" carb that came with endless adjustments and power valve changes.  Huh Undecided Shocked

It looks like the whole cab was painted white. Does it appear as though the original dark blue is over the white?
yep the entire cab and doors were white (the original top color) w/ the blue over that.The rest of the panels are the blue painted over black primmer. Seems odd but that's how they did it.

OK, My late father purchased this Jimmy new in 1954 (55 1st series) He drove it daily for 30 years and put over 500,000 mile on it. (still retains the original speedo which was still working at last drive)

It had the motor R&R twice the tranny replaced and rebuilt once and the rear end replaced once. Always retained the 6 volt electrical system and has never had a body panel replaces or repainted.

Then the GMC became a victim of poor storage Sad

Is this a SURVIVOR ? just curious.

I think that is one you need to restore, or at least make functional, preserve it, and drive it..  in the name of your father..  Smiley
Thank you I appreciate you reply. We will start w/ function and then paint and drive my son wants to drive it so I have built in help. But what about my old Tonka Truck?

My thought is that neither one of the cars pictured in this post look like they have "SURVIVED" anything. I think that these cars can be repainted and reconditioned at a fraction of the cost of complete restorations and the owners shouldn't feel bad rehabbing them. In fact they should feel good about improving the car's quality of life.

If you are comparing a high performance BB or SB (11:1, high lift & duration cam) to a typical stock motor of course yours won't sound or perform as good. You can easily over spend on headers and exhaust and it will just sound like a stock motor w/ headers and dual exhaust. louder may not be better.

I know this is not camaro related..... but I know some of you were in the" Nam" during 1965 thru 1974. And for you younger guys, you can see what  these brave men had to endure. Vietnam Lost Films. The Beginnings ( 1964 - 1965 ) 1/6  Terry P. S. How many times have we heard of the servicemen coming home and buying a camaro...
and many never came home..   and I heard of many, and know of at least one '69 Z28 which sat in his parents carport for many years.... in the last '70's, still waiting for the return that never happened....  It was a gorgeous azure with black vinyl top car..  that was one of the first Z28's I'd ever seen with the smog still intact, and I have no idea now what happened to it..   and forgive me for this one..  but in October of '69, while I was in the USAF, I ordered a lime green roadrunner HT... and I don't know where it is now either.  Smiley

You wouldnt have been stationed in Texas by chance around the 69-73 time frame?

60  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: 69 owners with "Pebble-grained" steering wheels (not shrouds) please check in on: September 24, 2013, 02:09:07 PM
Correct me if I am wrong but isn't the "pebble-grained" steering wheel that you are refering to and what GM refers to as the "grip assist" steering wheel the same? This should be included in the z23 option unless the wood grain wheel was ordered. Are you trying to document the factory's build accuracy as related to  this option package?
