Rob, everything I am getting for information is direct from GM.  So that way there is no need to get information (and have to verify accuracy) from the book you mentioned.  And yes I do have a copy of that book too. :)

Read THIS regarding brands, but unless the original buyer (or dealer) ordered something optional, your car would have come with blackwall (no stripe) Uniroyal 7.35x14 tires on the stock 14x6 FC code wheels and BASE HUBCAPS (more info HERE and HERE).

There were a few options regarding wheels and wheel covers, including Full wheel covers (RPO P01), Simulate Wire wheel covers (RPO N95), Mag Style wheel covers (RPO N96), Mag Spoke wheel cover (RPO PA2) and Rally wheels (RPO ZJ7).

There were also several optional tires available including whitewall, white stripe, red stripe and raised letters.

Since there were so many options available, you'll have to decide what you want to put on the car.

There is a photo of this car in Lamm's book 'The Great Camaro', pg37.  The caption states the tire sidewalls are reflective.  Interesting design idea that never saw the light of day?

Regarding the other new related design threads there is a lot of info in this book.  I really like the quarter-scale transparent body model !

 I just recently saw a GM fiberglass Crossram hood for sale & I believe it had the hood pins with an installation diagram , Canít recall if it also had the prop rod or not ... As far as buying a new hood Glasstek makes the hood that fits the Crossram air cleaner & itís probably cheaper than the normal Camaro parts houses..

Hello Tom,
Front bumper guards were available as RPO V31 for all 3 first-gen model years, refer to http://www.camaros.org/pdf/options.pdf for pricing and number of cars thus fitted.

Restoration / 1968 Camaro Stock Wheels and Tires
« Last post by gwp4 on March 21, 2019, 04:05:11 AM »
Hello Camaro owners:

I'm entering my 1968 Camaro into judging competition. I need to have bias ply tires on the car for originality and would like to know if anyone can tell me what was the brand of tire put on the car from the factory (Firestone, Goodyear, other?), the size of the tire (775-14? or F78-14?), and finally what was the actual size of the pinstripe (3/8", 7/8" or 1"?), which was an option. For background, my car was manufactured in May 1968, standard 327 mt, base model (not a Z28, SS, or RS). I also have stock hubcaps to use with the car, but am wondering if the chrome finish Chevy Rally wheels with Chevrolet Derby cap would also meet the originality requirement for a 68 Camaro. Many thanks for all the help. Tommy 68

Thanks that makes a lot more sense now. What show it was built in 67?  Also I will look in the glove box. The only stickers I remember seeing were on the drivers door in the jam side and they were I believe old oil change reminders. I will post more pics but I have to size them down they are too big. Don’t judge. She is rough right now.
The 09D indicated 4th week of Sept as discussed in earlier post. This would have to be 1967 because 09D 1968 would be a 1969 model year car...Joe
