A good rule is that when you're in a hole, stop digging.

Good one William :>) I think you and Kurt have went above and beyond trying to explain this.

When asked about these first gen Norwood body broadcast sheets by local guys, I tell them don't even bother looking !

Originality / Re: instruction sleeve on new 1969 Camaro sun visor
« Last post by 69Z28-RS on February 23, 2017, 03:42:19 PM »
Recently during this discussion, I took a quick look for the instruction sleeve (that was on my visor when purchased in Apr 1976 and removed from my visor and stored sometime in the early 80's).  I couldn't find it then, so I ordered a couple of the (69-72) Corvette sleeves from Corvette Central.   Well, yesterday while looking for something else over in my shop, I FOUND the original sleeve from the Camaro - sticking inside an old Chilton's Camaro Repair and tune up guide!

So here is a side by side comparison of the 'Corvette Sleeve - repro' and my Camaro sleeve - original.. front and back.  The differences I noted were 1) Size - the Corvette sleeve is larger for the larger corvette visor?  and 2) the PN's differ by '1' (3964573 for the Corvette and 3964572 for Camaro).  Both are dated 10-2-68.  The textual information and diagrams are both sized exactly the same - but the Corvette is on a larger sized sleeve.

Note:  The date/PN on the sleeve from my 09C Camaro is exactly the same as that posted previously by Terry69RSZ28 from his 03E Camaro, implying there was no change between those periods, and possibly no change from the date on those sleeves (2 Oct 68) until at least mid-Sept 69 and probably since that's so late, no change the rest of the production year.

So there was no way they could make out of the factory into anyones hands, yet they exist.

This was in my first post and explained that since I have one, I'm well aware BCs made it out of the factory. How you gleaned that out of this thread I have no idea.

I have a real one [not a copy] that was in the folder with other paperwork from the cars' delivery. Sometimes they were retained during new car prep, most often discarded. They were generated by Chevrolet when the assembled body was in queue for release to final assembly.

Apparently that wasn't clear enough for you so I posted it again.

The Gibb ZL1 BCs exist because they were left inside the car and he saved them. Apparently that was common but most dealers discarded them during prep.

Still not getting it, Kurt posted the same thing for a third time:

Dealers either discarded the copies in the car or put them in the dealership's new car file.

A good rule is that when you're in a hole, stop digging.

Rather than go to my shop and clear enough dust off the '70 Mach I to check out it's rim-blow steering wheel, I used the next best thing to my shop... (Google).. :)   and found a couple of Ford/Mustang/Cougar rim-blow steering wheels from 1970.. (this must have been the thing in 1970).. :)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Ford-Mustang-Mercury-Cougar-XR7-Mach-1-RIM-BLOW-Steering-Wheel-70-w-Pad-/302111183991?hash=item46573ad477:g:HDgAAOSw8w1YBjum&vxp=mtr

It's also wood grain ring with black vinyl trimmed tri-bar.. (maybe the padded tri-bar in the center of these '70 wheels had something to do with the gov't mandates for safety at the time????)..

and here is an example of the 'rim blow' that was on my challenger RT...   they had a black padded center button...

I actually think there were several cars that had wheels like that... maybe my wife's '70 Mach I (which also had a rim blow wheel on it)..  I still have that car, so I'll go and refresh my memory... maybe take a pix.. :)

PS.  Have any of you younger fellas ever driven a car with a 'rim blow' steering wheel?  To blow the horn, one just 'squeezes' the wheel while you're steering.. (takes a bit of getting used to).. :)

Guess I started all this.  :o  Kurt, just because I'm curious, approx how many Norwood built 67-69 Camaro broadcast copies have you seen during your years of Camaro research?

Austin, Fisher body never had broadcast sheets..  That was a Chevrolet side thing only.  By the time the sheets were put in or on the car the interior carpet and rear seat were installed..  There MIGHT be a slim chance of finding a UOIT (Uniform Option Identification Tag),  but that isnt the same as a "buildsheet".  Usually the likely reason in an owner receiving buildsheet is either it was thrown inside the car and during dealer prep of the new car it was added it to their new cars folder (like rare396bronze mentioned) or there was one that happened to have been found under the hood insulation on a deluxe interior car IIRC but that is most likely a miss by the assembly line worker before the installation of said insulation and probably a one and a million occurrence.

Read the link William posted.  It explains all of that.

I realize this topic is old but it seemed fitting. I'm at the point where I need to buy tires for my 08E 69 1969 SS396. Has anything else come to light as the correct tires I should be purchasing for this car? Thank you, Joe

^^^ Lotsa work alright. Very cool.

Ugly it might be..  but ..  I'm thinking that somewhere/sometime over the past 30-40 yrs that I HAVE seen steering wheels similar to that..  ie..  with a standard looknig (black vinyl) type center with a wood grain ring... not sure it was even a Chevrolet... it'll come to me sooner or later, or someone with a better memory than I will pipe in on this...  :)
How 'bout some of the Cudas and Challengers ? Guess if it had a Hemi I could live with it !  :)

you might be right...   In 1970, I owned a '70 Challenger RT/SE with *every option* available (but no hemi!), which had a wood grain appearing wheel ring with rim-blow feature.. but I have no photographs, and my memory isn't quite good enough to reconstruct that image in my head...?  It may have been made like this..  with black vinyl tri-bar and outer ring in wood grain??

Here's what I was thinkin' of. Makes the Custom wood N30 look GOOD !



Here's the ebay ad...

So there was no way they could make out of the factory into anyones hands, yet they exist.

When I say under the rear seat, does that mean they couldn't have been on the floor where the carpet stops? (like they were discarded on the floor, not tucked into the rear seat)

Sorry,  I thought english was your first language.
