General Discussion / Re: Different size 1969 Camaro Headrest
« Last post by Boston14 on Today at 10:06:22 PM »
My original headrests for my 11D (early 69) are straight, dated 9-18-68, and measure just over 13 and 9/16 inches. The plastic shield under the rest does stick out about 1/32 inches on the inboard side.

Originality / Re: 67 radius rod on 6 cyl
« Last post by 67conv6cyl on Today at 09:56:17 PM »
would anybody know what month that went into effect, because I have seen many 67's that did not have that extra metal support under the seat and also had original floors.

Just when I think I know something I am wrong I thought only 4P, 4N, 4K, and 4L had that extra support.

I accidentally ran into these guys that were local to me to fix my temp gauge.  They rebuilt it with NOS guts, but I'm not sure how much of that they have left.  Come to find out they restore lots of concours stuff and are world renown among that class.  You could call and ask them.

No the body would have the support regardless of the final build not requiring the radius rod.

I am surprised Kurt has not posted yet.  I asked him 2 years ago about 396 Pace Car production.  I was told around 500 to 735 range.  I asked because a friend of mine has one that  needs restored.   Now for sale because he bought a 67Z.  Car is very rough,  but has original engine and 3.08 128 bolt rear.  Turbo 400 is not original.    Car is in the registry.  But if you are going by Hp ratings.  375 cars were the lowest production

Read both adds.  One honest and one misleading.   They never claim it is a Pace Car.  But boy does it say everything but.  A lot of Smoke and Mirrors

I have a couple sets of early and later headrests.  yes, my original headrests for my early 10B Camaro are dated 7-8-68 and the original plastic trim stuck out about 3/8" on either side.  I trimmed them down a bit keeping the curve the same. looks much nicer. 

I also did a semi restore of them because the edges were all bowed out.  I made a box that the headrest fits into and compresses the edges flat.  Then using a little expanding foam and contact cement, reglued the edges and filled any voids.  So when you pull the headrest back out, the edges stay flat.  Looks good now!
