I tried to post a pic but the file was too large. I believe it to be a retaining clip for the spindle nut that holds in the bearing through the firewall.

Maintenance / 67 lower steering column.

While monkeying around with the lower  steering column on my 67, a keeper popped off and I'm having trouble figuring out how it goes back in. I'm almost certain it somehow goes about 5 inches aft of the gearbox, locking in the nut which is on what appears to be plastic threads. I've searched the web with minimal results. I'm hoping someone has a pic of how it goes. Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I was starting to think that I asked a dumb question.

Maintenance / 67 Power Top

Good day to all. I just purchased a 67 base convertible and had a couple of questions. First off, how do I top off the fluid in the power top and what is the correct fluid? it works great but sounds as if someone is slurping on an empty beer can (through a straw) as it gets to full up and full down.  Are the parking lights white or yellow as I have one of each color right now. Also, was there a center emblem on the grill of base Camaro's. I thank you in advance of all replies.

  Thanks Red as well as all who have offered their expertise. I do feel confident that the car in question does have its original engine and thus I have a better idea of what kind of offer to make on the car. Judging by the number of views this conversation has, I'm not quite sure if its still available.

I didn't realize my simple question would have this much of a snowball effect but I'm glad it did.
 To answer Ragtop's questions, and I don't want to sound like an arrogant jack@, but I would prefer the original engine simply because that is what I prefer. I don't want someone else's idea of better then the original. As for what I think it's worth, That is the reason that I am asking these questions on here. I'm doing my best to come up with a number that both the seller and myself are comfortable with.
 I appreciate the info on the BJ auction as I didn't know how much the buyer fee's were as well as the other auction info.

Thank you Gary and Phil for your opinion and insight. It is well taken. In your opinion, after looking at the pics and info, do you believe it to be original to the car? Its obvious that with this particular engine in this year, it all comes down to a matter of opinion. You guys on here have more experience then I do so your thoughts are much appreciated.

That's what I'm hoping will be "my one". any opinion? Let me clarify my waste money statement by saying that I simply do not want to overpay. I looked at what the car sold for at that auction and am now comparing it to what a similar car would cost at the same auction what is now 8 or so years later.

Let me cut to the chase. The car that I'm interested in is listed on Marina blue convertible.  I would love to hear any opinions as I'm still doing my homework on it. As for what I'm chasing, a 67 Camaro convertible. Has to be number matching. All other options have varying importance in my mind. Thank you all again.

Thanks for all the input although it's a bit disheartening as I now feel as though I'm chasing something that does not exist.

I'm wondering then how any 327 of that year is labeled as numbers matching if there is no absolute proof.

With the information provided on this excellent web site, it is apparent that 1967 327's do not have the partial vin stamped on the block. My question then is it an accepted industry standard that if the cast date, assembly date and fisher body date all line up correctly then it is an original engine? How hard would it be to duplicate or find a correct date block?  I'm interested in buying a 67 convertible that I found on-line but do not want to waste my money if its not the original engine. I thank you in advance for your help and advice.
