I see this topic is old but trying to find a correct jack for the
1967 LOS 02B Sport Coupe

I read through the whole thread and was convinced that all of the LOS cars had square shaft jacks, but then the final list from @KurtS included a LOS 10B car with a trapezoid shaft. Was that a misprint or is this issue not settled?

I am in a similar boat as you but with a 68 LOS car..  I am working through what is and isnt acceptable but not much info out there on the topic currently.  Hopefully reviving this thread will bring in more data points.

Based on this sampling, it appears only square masts were used at LOS after the change from the trapezoidal design was made; sometime between 10B 66 and 04B 67. But there just isn't enough info there to say that with 100% authority. If it were me and I needed a jack for a LOS car built after 01A 67, I'd go with a square mast. Really hard to believe that both weren't used more often at Van Nuys though considering every car produced needed one. There were obviously multiple suppliers, so definitely possible for both type to be used.

I happened to notice this topic and found it interesting.  I noticed on my weekly search on Ebay for "1969 Camaro Original" that this jack was posted, and I figured it might add to the amount of empirical data that has already been gathered.  Like my '69's jack it has a gray jacking mechanism and a black base.  Note the GM part numbers on the box and stickers on the tire iron, and also lack of a date code on the jacking mech.  Would this jack be considered incorrect for an LOS car, and how big of a deal is that...points deduction at a judged show?

My '70 Camaro survivor had its original "Van Nuys" jack and, aside from the obviously different jack hook, appeared to be essentially the same as the '68 jack posted above by "MGreenZ".  It was 32 3/4" tall, had a black painted jacking mechanism, load rest, and hook, and had no date codes or numbers of any kind.  I believe it was made by the Williams Corp somewhere out west.  Like the 1st Gen jacks, it was completely different than a Norwood jack.  It has never made any sense to me why Norwood and Van Nuys would use two different jack suppliers, other than the 2 factories preferred suppliers closer to the respective plants.

This is the jack from my 44k mile original survivor '69 (located in the "Six Cylinder" section).  There doesn't appear to be a date code or part number on the top of the mast.  I don't think the base and jacking mechanism being different colors is all that unusual as I have seen a few examples of this over the years.

BTW, this is the only place on the 'Net that has any of this data for 1st Gen Camaros.  I appreciate the insane amount of work that went into (and continues to go into) this website...thanks!

Plant: NOR
Model Year: 69
Build Date: 05E
Jack Mast Section: Trapezoidal
Rivet Date: "9E"
Jack Base: "U69"
Bumper Hook: "CAMARO 1969 UN"

I've never seen an original black jack base. I'd guess that those are service parts.

Thinking a later replacement base would be marked just U if replaced very late 1969 or 1970 up
