I have been an on off member of this site for 3 or 4 years but have been very busy with life the last year or so and have not been involved . I did own a sweet rs ss 67 ragtop clone for 4years but sold it this past June when we moved. I recently bought another 67 ragtop and immediatly put the car in storage to build a garage. I am the fourth owner and have the original protector plate for the car. The previous owner says the car is numbers matching. I have not had time to confirm this due to the garage build and the car being in storage. It is a 327 four barrel 3 speed Saginaw with a deluxe/custom interior. 10 bolt open rear end.Manual brakes manual top. This car has the factory set of console gauges and dash tack. I know these features were all available at the time of production but is it a little odd to see a non rs ss car with the gauge package and deluxe interior with a 3 speed Saginaw. Where the 3 speed sags ;Dcommon in these cars.Help with info please.
If you want, post some pics of the trim tag on the firewall and the Protect-o-Plate. We can help you decode the information about options that way. Or send them to me direct and I will email you back.
There should be an assembly date and application code on the front pad of the engine block. That should match the Protect-o-Plate.
I am not as familiar with 67s as 68s, but I believe the Saginaw 3 speed was the base transmission, so it is common.
