The 1969 Fisher Body Service Manual indicates that sacrificial zinc anode clips were originally installed in the rear window channels on Camaros (not convertibles). See Section 17, pages 5 and 6. In my work, we employ catholic protection on major highway bridges to reduce internal steel corrosion, so I am familiar with the concept. However, I cannot see that the anode clips would be very effective in this Camaro application. Cannot think of one owner who has routinely replaced clips as they corrode, nor anyone who has installed them during restoration. Anyone know otherwise?

Well I guess that answers the question, nobody uses them when doing a restoration.

Do not have a 69 Body Service Manual but I sure would like to see a picture of a zinc anode clip. Are they regular production clips that are zinc plated? If that is the case then there should be a part number for then for service replacement. If not, then they never made it into production.

Bob, the Fisher Body manual calls up part group, not part number, for replacement clips; Group 10.096
It also says in Note 2, page 17-6, "Both zinc anode clips and alternate replacement self-sealing screws are available as service parts."
Fisher references may be different to GM reference numbers though.
