1  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Original dealer info for 1st gens is available on: April 23, 2015, 04:37:48 PM
I got my NRCS "official production date" and the name of the dealer my 67 RS/SS 03C was originally delivered to, in the mail today.  I was kind of excited waiting for it to come the last few days. It didn't take long at all.   Here are the results.  I knew the start of production was the third week of March.  The production date stated 3-22-67.  The original dealer it was delivered to was Connell Chevrolet in Costa Mesa, California.  Dealer code was 125 in zone 20.  Now I can look for more info on the car.  Does anyone remember this dealer?  Any help would be appreciated.  Now to check out those dealer zones etc. and what happened to the dealer.Smiley

3  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Research Topics & Reports / Re: Original 67-69 Camaro driveshafts - information requested about your car on: April 04, 2015, 03:09:16 PM
I finally got around to crawling under the 67 to find this info.  Hopefully it is helpful.

Here is what I found:

1967 Camaro RS/SS 396 BB with 400 TH auto.
LOS car built 03C third week of March 67
driveshaft length from center yoke to yoke 50" or very close to it
attachment to pinion yoke with straps  - injection on other joints
Code on rear axle is Q W 0 ? 0 7 G 1 (the 4th digit is hidden behind axle clamp, I wasn't going to move it)  It seems that these numbers were more left on the axle than in the place that is stated in the pictures.  I had a hard time finding it till I looked and wire brushed it more to the left. 
I found 2 paint stripes on the shaft,  From the front to the rear appears to be orange and the rear possibly green?  but i am somewhat colorblind in that color!  Spaced about 6 inches apart and about an inch wide, more near the front.
position of the u joint flanges are "inline".

Hope this helps you all.

Not sure if it is relevant anymore with all the gas tank codes already in the database, but I got finally around to looking at the gas tank code of my 67 03C today and found 11 N 7 on the tank.  LOS built car, built 3rd week of March puts it right in a few days before assembly the way it looks.  Also, the tank is painted black (looks like factory as this car has a lot of originality to it.)  I see someone already has the same numbers in the list.  11 N 7 would be 11th week of 67 night shift I believe?  Just my 2 cents worth without inflation!  Smiley

I often wondered about the gas cap as well.  Just "SS."  Not SS 396.  I wonder back then if many drivers knew what the blacked out tail pan meant?   They probably figured it out when they seen it "ahead of them" down the street. Lol!  Grin

My 67 (3rd week of March) LOS car does have the same part numbers as you have but also has some remnants of yellow markings on the top side of the motor.  The very first number appears to be a "3" then some spaces (probably washed off) then the very last number which looks like a "6" or possibly a "C" but that wouldn't make any sense to be a C.  That is all I have.

I believe that because there were not as many 396's put in the Camaro's at that earlier time of the year, that it might be the reason that the engines sat for a while before they were needed.  Small blocks were more commonly used, therefore they didn't sit too long.  Maybe a couple of days or a week or two?  I would think that as the year progressed and the demand for BB's increased, maybe the BB's narrowed the time spent sitting before they were mated up to their prospective cars.  So what Big Iron stated would be correct.

The dipstick top and tube assembly on my TO131MZ 396 (03C) has definite black paint all the way down.  This has never been out of the car and neither has the engine.

I might as well throw my 2 cents in here as well.  Looking at my TO131MZ L35 Jan. 31, 67 dipstick, it looks exactly like Mike's TO214 MZ dipstick with the same bends.  (Top picture in his post.)  As well as the same markings, no lines just 2 dots with the "M" that looks like an upside down "W" and measures 18 and one eighth inches from the top of the "bell" to the add mark. Unfortunately the button is missing.  The top portion is painted black.  Don't know if someone did that or not but it looks like it has been there a very long time.  I wonder if there were differences in the MZ California A.I.R. verses others?

I'm sorry....I meant to say "hex head" screws with the large G and the L inside the G,  imprinted on the head itself.

Well my 67 LOS built 03C car is different again.  The rear tail light assemblies have Phillips screw fasteners on the drivers side and pan head screw fasteners on the passenger side.  Does this mean that there were two different assemblers on each side using two different bins?  I never noticed this before, and they are the originals.

15  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Words on back of sail panel (67) on: July 11, 2014, 09:39:12 PM
In the process of removing my old headliner and sail panel material (and accumulation of a past mouse, or "mices" nest or two, I found the words "holes 100 pr" hand written on the back of one of the rear sail panels.  I'm thinking it meant "holes 100 pair'?  I wonder if they only punched holes in the sail panels of what they needed at the time for the courtesy lights to fit the cars with the deluxe interior?  Does that sound right?  I tried and tried posting the pic of it but it wont let me even though I saved it in photobucket with the link.  I did order the headliner with enough sail panel material and new visors to match from Classic Ind. and it matches the old ones perfect!   I did however have to order the insulation pieces from Heartbeat as CI didn't have them.  Roof underside looks great with rods etc.  Even the plastic clips are in great shape although I did order new ones.  A little touch up paint and some Lysol spray (for where the mice were) and it's ready for the install.  Even painted up the rods nice.  Might have to show pics somehow when it's all done if I can get them to send.
