The link above is from the Trifive forum, but the first post in that thread shows 3 very interested *period* photos from the '70s... Yes, there's one or more first gen Camaros depicted.. :)

That's a 69 VW ad for their used car warranty with a 69 Camaro in "very special paint".

I was to young to have known Bill Parker 4 speeds, but I have driven past that spot a bunch of times. I have seen those photos published on another site where they broke down what each car had for a power train. Very interesting stuff

I'll get one tonight. Was going to make a bench seat-back out of it, but it's got some flaky rust and I think it's better-off as a looker than a "toucher"

I'd say mid to late 90's. Judging by the Sunfire and the 4th gen Camaro.

That 68/69 reminds me of one I saw in a magazine a long time ago that had a mid engine(behind the seats) 455 or something.

That is the Waldo tunnel from SF to Marin. The rainbows were painted in about 1970, in order to brighten up the roadways.

Nice.  Studebakers rock.   My 53 Commander has a lock up torque converer.  What year did GM finally get around to that?  83?  84?

good question, I was thinking the same thing. Has to be mid to late 70's. I know that kind of custom work was big in northwest around that window.

My first SS. Think the pic is from Fall 19 ya 78. Do idea what the tag said or the Vin#. Had black deluxe comfort weave interior rosewood dash and steering wheel, tach and gauges. 350 4 spd. Rear mounted antenna with short spoiler. No air.
Got caught out in snow coming home from my job a grocery store bagger. 35 mph, flipped upside down in ditch. Crushed front passenger front fender and pilar post and roof...though not terribly bad. Could have been fixed, but sold it for parts....Loved those Western Wheels.

What I would do to have her back..lol..Bought it for $2000.00... lol Wish I had at least kept something with the vin#. I assume it was X55 and must have been early. May not have even had x code. Oh well.
Wish I had known what I know now..right? Lol. It was a beautiful car at the time. I was 16..lot of good memories in the year or so I had it....I guess the pic would be from 79. So began the camaro disease.

Another tidy bit.  I fixed up another camaro and used these wheels. It was dark gray primer.  Sold it someone around the Gastonia or Charlotte area...I think winter of 87 or spring of 88 before I got married. If anyone in that area remembers this car please let me know...

Interesting a SS, with the cowl hood. To bad chevy didn't break down the numbers more. I would have liked to know how many SS cars were ordered with that hood, vs Z/28.

the black and white through me off. But I believe would have been the only way to get those stripes. Maybe the endura bumper also got me.

Still a good question.  I think William broke it down sometime ago but, I can't seem to find that post.

I thought William broke down how many were left after the Z/10, and Z/11. Which was like 5300 roughly, to divide up between SS and Z/28.

Hard to pin down how many Z10s in the mix; estimated to be 350-450. There were 10,026 ZL2 hoods; subtract 3,675 Z11s and 400 Z10s leaves 5,951 hoods to divide up between Z/28s and the remainder of SS production. There were more SS built than Z/28s so it is likely SS installation was higher.

Of the remainder, guessing SS 3,764, Z/28 2,187. Don't take it to the bank.

Thanks for the rough breakdown William. I would have though less SS since they came with a decorative hood as part of the package, but I will go with your gut. You have probably forgotten more about first gens than I know.  ;D
I think it was explained COPO didn't figure in to that number, and was separate since it was called out differently for that car.

I don't know if has been proven but some say the first production cowl hoods were on the ZL1 Camaros

Chevy promised Fred Gibb and Dick Harrell they would get one by the end of the year and it arrived on Dec 31 , 1968

The number one ZL1 had its cowl hood changed to a fiberglass hood 

this road test article of the two ZL1s , shows number one and said the other ZL 1 is number 5 and it had 25 miles on it when picked up to drive it to the drag strip   
both were dusk blue

So was the other hood pictured the fiberglass? is that a somewhat forced air hood? (looks a bit fancy for racing)

What about the COPOs?...Joe

Certain options were included in the total only when they are listed in the vehicle build record. ZL2 was included with COPOs 9560 & 9561 and does not appear in build records [or documents] for those cars. So, not counted. At this time, the earliest known ZL2 installation is a Z/28 at the Van Nuys plant.

BTW COPO build records for both list the L78 engine. The 'official' L78 build total of 4,889 is overstated by 1,066.

found this  photo

The Chevy Show truck semi trailer can be seen in the back

 I think it's from Canada because I looked up "cine sphere 3" and says .....

"It's Expo 1967 in Montreal Canada and multi-screen film presentations are the rage of the renowned international fair.  Canadian entrepreneurs and filmmakers Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, and Robert Kerr actually produced some of the films being shown, but made a decision to create a single projector/screen motion picture system which would equal or surpass the grandeur of the cumbersome multi-camera systems.  IMAXģ corporation was born."

I've never seen or heard of 'special paint' applying to Rallye Wheels... ??  so my suspicion is that the wheels are/were painted orange by the owner at some point.

Cool. It's even got orange stripe tires instead of the normal red stripe tires.

Unless, of course, the car is really red and appears orange because it's an old faded photograph that has been scanned and then viewed on a computer monitor.

There are multiple Centennial Chevelles which have their SS wheels painted GOLD per the build sheet instructions SO yes the Camaro could have had it's wheels painted orange at the factory.

this road test article of the two ZL1s , shows number one and said the other ZL 1 is number 5 and it had 25 miles on it when picked up to drive it to the drag strip   
both were dusk blue

The complete history of the ZL-1 engine project at Chevrolet is being researched; the author for this famous track test was interviewed. He stated the test took place on an unusually warm day in late January, 1969. The street ZL-1 Camaro used was definitely the #2 car. The #5 ZL-1 was final-assembled on or about March 4, 1969. Several original photographs from the article were obtained, one showing the #2 car parked in Dick Harrell's shop. A wall calendar set to January 1969 is seen in the photo.

There has been some controversy concerning #5 as raced by Shay Nichols. Period photos show it with a white standard interior; all 50 Fred Gibb ZL-1s had black standard interiors. Gibb dealership records show #5 was sold to Phil and Shay Nichols on May 7, 1969. Obviously, had an interior swap. Last known owner claims it was beyond repair and was junked. #2 still exists.

Thanks for the reply on the roof moulding.

How did I type 67 instead of '69 for the red car  ::) can't seem to change it ?

My first 1968 taken in 1985. Tried several times but never got a 427 to run as good as that motor and could never get a 68 to sit like that again. I've not gave up yet though...

Wonder what the story was here ? looks to have come off the road, is that a electrical company guy on the left, wires are down,

Wonder where that is ? you can see a tag on the Cougar.

Looks like it ran smack dab into a pole.  Not sure of location but it surely isn't here in the midwest.  There are mountains in the background.  Notice the car has different front and rear wheels.  Fatter rubber in the back.

This looks like it could be a shoot for one of those high school year book ads, temp tag and El Camino on the right.

Having worked in a GM plant on inspection that trunk fit doesn't look good !


Are those wheel covers factory for '67s ?

Re: reply143. That picture is of my Navy buddy Jimís Z /28 from an earlier post of mine.  It was, according to him, the 6th Z/28 off of the Los Angeles assembly line. He sold the car back in the 70ís, but still has the original window sticker. I do have a copy. Donít know what happened to the car. Did Google search of VIN, but no luck.  It was such an early car.The headrests were an option. Donít know if the spoilers were deleted or just werenít ordered.  Thx for posting

Spoilers were not included with Z/28 equipment until April 1, 1969. The Car Life Z/28 was not built with them; they were added for the test. It did have stripes.

As in other vintage photos of VN built Z/28s, the tailpipes appear to be painted black.

Let's see that window sticker.

Just a 158 before mine (124379L503829). I am surprised it would be the 6th Z off the line though, since my car is a 10B, and I thought they had been making them for over a month at that point. I wonder how he came to that conclusion?

It was just puffery, a statement made with no basis in fact.

My info, gathered over many years, has 21 VN Z/28s with a lower VIN. That works out to 0.6% so it is safe to say there were plenty more.

Thanks for the pic Charles!

 across it in my disorganized file on my lap top.

What a cool photo, I'm sure it is a treasured memory for you and your navy buddy ! where was that taken in California , I see some

 aircraft in the back ground ? Is there a link with you to the "Dyno Tune" Camaro in the photo as well ?

I believe the STD Ratio avail contented with the Z28 was 3.73, so It would appear G80/3.73 would cover line cost of the Posi, then the RPO Upgrade optional avail at an added Additional Cost was the G84/4.10

Group/7 Went back and found the original thread I started back in March  2018. It tells the story from my friend Jimís recollection of how he purchased the car. I think it is pretty interesting reading
The picture was taken @ the San Fernando Drag Strip in the Spring of 1969.

'69 Z, wet street. looks to be mid '70s ?  judging by the cars in the background.

Side pipes, Cragars ? and a hood tach or some other gauge, those were the days !

Looks like a 69 non RS grille. Really custom paint; Z stripes, nose stripe, some sort of panel paint layout on the roof and maybe some striping on the side.

staying with that theme, I don't think this ended well  :( snowy roads played into it I think.

What are the wheels on the rear of the Camaro ?

I think those are Fenton Hawks. Possibly a later Keystone Knockoff. Hard to tell for sure, picture get grainy when you zoom in.

That wheel looks good, but the wheel on the Camaro looks like the spokes come to a point at the center.

Looks to be a pre-production prototype ? no wheel covers or trim rings & centre caps.

From that angle it's hard to tell definitively, but it could very well be a match. The center cap does look larger though which might fill the gap to match the wheel in post 168 better. How weird to find those two pics of cars with that type wheel on the rear and what looks like black wheels on the front! It would not be as ironic if they were TT's or Cragar's.

Fenton also made a Super Shark which had a slightly different center. Either way I think they are some version of a Fenton wheel.

That's probably exactly what it is..  :)    One was supposed to remove those decals when cars were traded or sold, but many/most didn't do so..  This one on my car was put on in 1976 or so... :)

I mounted mine on a piece of plexiglass and had it on the dash when I went on base. Some of the sentry guards didn't like it, but I was never ordered to put the sticker on the bumper. Back then I shaved all emblems, decals, dealer plates and emblems for a clean look. Today, I treasure them.

Considering 67 Zs only had 302 emblems on the fenders, it's definitely not a stock emblem from the factory. Whether it was a Z28 and he installed 68 Z28 emblems on it, or just pretending it's a Z is anybody's guess.

I knew the early 68s had the 302 emblems, and went to the Z28 emblems later, but for some reason I thought the 302 was carried over from 67. My mistake, thanks for the info.

Here's a '69 Z at the press launch for '69 models at the GM proving grounds. I'd posted this in another thread here also in

reference to stripes carrying onto the deck lid on cars with spoilers.

Would this be a pilot car ?

No spoiler delete. More likely it was built before spoilers (RPO D80) were included with the 1969 Z/28 package. Prior to that they were optional for 68-69. 

Yes, Beach City Chevrolet was located in Long Beach, CA.

Re: nose stripes, this photo was posted here in another thread on promotional and pace cars by SMKZ28 (thanks Scott !)  from an

 in house GM magazine from 1966 that I have. This was the first appearance of '67s in public September 25th. '66 Can-Am race at

 Mosport, Ontario, Canada. There were comments about the stripe on this car either in that thread or some where else, can't find it

 now.

That's John Surtees with the Camaro.

I remember long ago, I spoke with one of the few Camaro experts (that wrote many books) of the day and he told me something that sticks with me......"these cars were made on an assembly line where depending on the day they were built, there are going to be variances - that's the way it is - not everything is going to be spot on".  The QA folks at the end of the line weren't going to reject a car due to a stripe that's off by a 1/4"......

He's right.

I'm in agreement with camaronut, having worked final inspection in a GM plant in Canada, I'd pull a car aside and point out a fault

 to my supervisor who'd eyeball it and tell me ship it ! It was more about numbers out the door than quality ! I'd see cars in dealers

 and auto shows with faults, that maybe the untrained eye wouldn't spot.

What about the nose on photo ? striping and turn/park lights are not production, GM show car ? Could be taken at Milford ?

The door to fender gap is likely in the .25 inch range on that "1970" car.  From my recollection, production fender gaps could vary significantly from car to car.   And I've had ten 67 to 69's when they were original.  They built production cars.  Not show cars.  How many restoration shops today custom work the fender and door leading edge by welding on or removing material to get to 1/8 inch gaps?   I'd bet most of the top show cars are massaged in  that manner.

Does anyone know the reason they stopped production of the SS wheels in late 1968 or so?   If I did know why in the past, I've forgotten.   I've always liked that SS wheel.

Yeah, I've seen other promo pics with those wheels. I guess the idea was to help differentiate the "70's" from the 69's. I think it's a great looking wheel and looks perfect on 69 Camaro's.

Vince & MO, just for information,  re: SS wheels on '70 Camaros, Quoting Vince's post on Feb. 1st this year " does anyone know the

 reason they stopped production of the SS wheels in late '68 or so ?"

Here's a couple of scans from the Canadian '69 model year GM vehicle Ordering Manual, dated April 1st. '69,  shows those SS

 wheels to be available but Z27 must be ordered. All prices in Canadian dollars, they weren't cheap !

Yeah, that was pretty pricey at around $100 each after Z27 was added. That's why so many after market wheels were sold.

Gotta say I like that hood on that body style! Wonder how it would look with factory Z stripes? Might have too much going on and look better without them. I have seen them with a single stripe which looks good though.

Gotta say I like that hood on that body style! Wonder how it would look with factory Z stripes? Might have too much going on and look better without them. I have seen them with a single stripe which looks good though.
Thanks, I loved that fiberglass hood. My dad owned a body shop so I did all the prep work and he painted it. I considered Z stripes but decided against it due to the contours of the L88 hood vs. the width of the stripes.

This pic was taken '80 of my '72. Of all the cars that I've had this one and my 396 SS/RS are my all time favorites.

Funny, I had a 73 full bumper Camaro in 1980. Maroon with black vinyl top and black interior,...front and rear spoilers like yours, but I put a 78 Z28 hood scoop on it.

A friend of mine had a red 70 RS with the L88 hood on it and I always thought it looked perfect on it.
