You mean, remember the body number right?

( I am sure they are sourcing the block/trans/rear here we come!)

67's are not my expertise, but I'll ask the easy question - where is the shift pattern for the chrome knob car?
It has to be somewhere - either on the knob or on the console.

I'm really leaning in the direction of a two-design supplier for the entire year. Here's a thought - did Stant supply this same cap to Ford or Chrysler in the same time period ? I don't frequent either manufacturer's fan club sites, but I think it's a related question. External caps are ruled out (like the '67-8's), but there are other models that might share the cap for '69 and later. Just wondering - possible substitution if the spec cap for '69 Camaros ran low ? Too bad we can't look at the part specifications like the CBTN major parts books.

I read the shifter section of your link.  I have had two 67s w/ the standard three speed and console (327/210 & 250/155).  Neither shifter had Muncie stamped on it.  As for the knobs, one had a black knob with the 3spd pattern stamped in the top, and the other has a chrome knob w/o a pattern (current car).  I am highly confident that the chrome knob is original to the car.  I'm not as sure the black knob was an original. 

I'm just curious about originality since the referenced article states that all knobs were black with the shift pattern imprinted.

General Discussion / '68 Z28 instrument housing - paint?
« Last post by barsteel on November 25, 2015, 12:52:48 AM »

Since I have my '68 Z28 laid up for a brake system overhaul, I decided to pull the cluster to have the tach rebuilt (wildly inaccurate) and to fix the dash light.

The original housing is not in the best shape...the upper corners on both sides are broken off, there's a small piece broken off the bottom and missing, and the entire housing is stained and scratched.

I know that Camaro Central sells a repop housing, but only in black but with the correct chroming, so it has to be painted.

Has anyone ever painted a plastic dash part using the paint that CC sells?  I'd like to replace the housing, but only if the paint is a fairly decent match with texture that doesn't look completely out of place.  Also, I'll have to mask off the chroming, and I'm not sure what the result will look like after painting.

Anyone have any experience with painting plastic dash parts?

Have not seen a full service station since I saw Young Frankenstein at the drive in.
