COPO Survivor Complete Smog Set-up--Wow
« on: August 12, 2015, 12:01:25 AM »
Good friend of mine just picked up a complete smog set-up that came off a 69 COPO hugger orange RS Camaro with white interior. Original owner told him he took it off when the car was two weeks old and it looks like it. Thought I'd post some pictures for future reviews as set-ups like this are rare and its pretty neat to see exactly what it was like from the factory. Great piece of Camaro history.

And I thought I was the only one who kept everything?! Nice Chick and many thanks to you and your friend.  Indeed, A rare opportunity to see how the OEM pieces look and compare to repros.

Great photos to capture the details Chick!
Interesting that the Wittek clamp is dated 1st quarter of 69 for a July-built car, I guess I just assumed that most would be very close to car build date due to the large numbers of this type of part required. I've been hunting down a couple of 1/69 heater hose clamps for my 04A car, but maybe 4/68 could do just as well.....

Great pics Chick!  Thanks for posting.  Now go find the car that they came off of - I'd love to have it sitting next to this:

Where are the straight tubes that the mounting bolts are sitting on used?

That diverter valve is not the original. The decals weren't used until the 70's.

Also, sure looks like it is showing WAY more use than 2 weeks. If it got taken off 2 weeks after purchase it would be beautiful.. Should be way cleaner than that. Looks more like 10 years.. D

Think the undercoating spray is from the 70's also? It seems to conflict with either the diverter valve or the system removal date.
