Thanks Darrell, great pics. It confirms to me (until proven otherwise) that the Bumble Bee stripe & emblem  are really that close to the front of the fender, matching the Classic Industries emblem templates. From my own mock ups, it looks like the stripe is the same width as the emblems, lining up edge to edge.

I've also learnt that since the LHS emblem has front locator pin further back, many people use the RHS emblem on LHS fender to improve it sitting flush with fender curve because it's first pin is right at the front.

Interesting to see the stripe does not continue to the bottom of the fender.

As the Hockey stripe fender is right hand side, it looks like the emblem sits further back then a bumble bee stripe & emblem (assuming RHS BB emblem with locator pin at front of number)

Long shot, but do you know the build month of the car the Bumble Bee guard came off? Mine is an 11B, before the Hockey stripe became default on SS.

Thanks again for the pics. They are the best "original & close up" I've come across.

I would like to refer you to the below post.
Mine is 11B and the post refers to a 11E

Is it possible that on a '68 the D91 for pre-Jan 68 WAS slightly different?
AIM shows D91 outer stripe joining and if barraza has pictures of his Dad's car with this, perhaps it was that way for early 68's?
Does anyone have anything conclusive from an original pre Jan 68 SS?

Quoted from above link..
".......My 68 is a 11E build ss-350 with the bumble bee stripe. My dad bought it new.
.............But where it gets interesting .............. Another anomaly is the AIM stripe D91 shows the outer pinstripe connected front to rear on the portion of the stripe below the engine size emblem. The stencils are not made this way, and no one repaints it this way, but old pictures of my car clearly show these two stripe connected as per the AIM drawing. ......"

Hi All,

The front sheet metal on my 68 SS had been replaced (front end crash?) at some time and I'm about to drill the holes for the 396 fender emblems.

I bought the Classic Industries templates "Classic Templates" / "CHQ Reproductions" and when placing over the side marker bezel and lining the template up with "Approx end of fender" and "fender to bottom section", the emblem is less than 1" (20mm) from the edge of the fender. This looks to close to me.

When I check where the D91 stripe (not yet painted) should be as per the AIMs, the emblem is no where near the centre of the stripe. The 396 is much closer to front edge of fender than the stripe edge is.

Can anyone post a picture of a 68 D91 stripe with 396 emblems and/or provide measurements?

Cheers.

Thanks for the photos & measurements Mike S. There's are blokes out here who paint the red line on the current tyre so at least I can get a "factory look" without having to but new tyres.

Thanks Mike S & 68camaroz28.
Mike S - Pics of the tire would be great. Can you also measure the distance from rim to redline please? Lakeholme says Inch & 7/16' so a second opinion could confirm that for me.

Thanks Frost69. I hope I'm not hijacking this thread. If so let me know and I'll stop or start a new one.
From the link you gave me, I was able to find a bit more info on the salesman at the original dealer and found his daughter on FaceBook. I've sent her a message and hopefully she responds and can put me in touch with her father. Some old photos or stories about the dealership and that era would be fascinating.

Thanks Everyone. The information provided here at CRG is terrific!
23  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: June 12, 2014, 06:14:59 AM
rsinor. Thank you for your work. Best of luck in the future. I'm very grateful that I was fortunate to receive your report. It helps add another piece to the puzzle that is the history of my Camaro. Smiley

ZLP955. I hadn't seen your message until now. Wow, thanks for the leads. Number plate surround purchased the minute I saw it! Victoria has the USA style plates too and you've just made up my mind if I should get them or not.
You rock. I'll be following up on the dealer info you provided too.

I wasn't aware that Roy is gone.
His name (Roy Sinor) and signature is on the report.

Thanks to NCRS, I received my shipping report today.
Order number - 912 (time to delivery was exactly 30 days as promised which is good considering it had to come to Australia).
Dealer code 107 in zone 19.
Dealer - Courtesy Chevrolet, Medford, Oregon.

I've searched but cannot find any information on this dealership except for one in Arizona and another in San Jose. Does anyone have any info on them or know where I could start looking?

Hi Guys,
I've been trying to find out more about the early 68 D91 stripe to see if it's different to the standard D91 and if I read barraza's question correctly, he's asking the same question and not Bumble Bee vs. Hockey stripe.

In the 68 Factory Assembly manual, Pg 238, the lower part of the bumble stripe clearly shows the thin outer line wrapping around the thick center part of the stripe, UNDER the ci emblem.
My SS/RS is build Nov 67 and judging by the book, should have this stripe but I've not seen it anywhere except on 1 other car.
Does anyone have an original 68 SS (built in 1967) with original bumble bee stripe please?
-Cheer Ue.
27  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Red Line tyre measurements 68 SS RPO-PW8 on: June 06, 2014, 09:00:15 PM
Hi All,
To make my 68 SS/RS look more like it did in its day, I'm looking at getting aftermarket redline / redwall stripes (RPO PW8) applied on my tyres (tires) and while there are plenty of brochures showing them, I cannot find anywhere with measurements.

Can anyone tell me...
1. how wide the redline stripe is?
2. how far from the rim does it start?
If this is already posted in another thread, I couldn't find it but please post a link.
Thanks in advance.

BTW,
To the moderators, I'm not sure but some of your image storage may be offline as several pics cannot be displayed.

Just an update. My mechanic who overhauled the rear confirmed it's a Posi 3.07.

I would love to Ed but my front sheet metal has been replaced and there are no badge holes in guards or nose cone. I was going to get a stencil from classic Industries when I pull it off the road this winter (Australia time)

In confirming that my '68 (build Nov '67) SS/RS would have had the D91 stripe, I came across this article on SuperChevy.com. I'm not sure where they got all their info nor if their measurements are 100% but it may help others trying to repaint their stripes.

http://www.superchevy.com/technical/paint_body/paint/1309_chevrolet_camaro_know_your_stripes/viewall.html

I've never seen the L48 stripes (side AND deck / AIM pages 295/296) on a Camaro. Has anyone else?
