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.

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."

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.
