Interesting paperwork. This car was ordered almost a full month before mine, yet was received almost 3 weeks after mine. I wonder what the hold up was?

It appears that he ordered a car through one dealer and picked it up at a different dealer. Without talking to Ken Stoddart, there is no telling what the complete story is. It would be interesting to see what the NCRS Muscle Docs would show for this car.

Besides the 67 frame holes the washer motor hole looks round like on a 67 firewall.  It could just be the angle of the photo.

I would be interested to see the rear end stamp, if it is still the original. It is dated 3 days after mine, so I wonder if the "C" is win front of the BU, or not, since the car may have started to get built before mine?

Some good pieces there, Jeff.

More info on the JL8/J56 brakes here at this link... http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=10786.0;all

Your calipers are mounted mounted on the leading side of the rotor like a Corvette. Can you take some photos from the backside showing the bracket(s) and how they're mounted?

Did you get any swaybar pieces with the car?

Here is a picture of the caliper from the inside.  I do have one sway bar that came with the car...  Pictures of the sway bar will be posted tomorrow.  Jeff

Any chance of posting a pic of the rear end stamping and protecto plate?

Looks like the JL8 front calipers based on the casting number.

Thanks for the pic, Jeff. Looks like the Corvette J56 heavy duty caliper reinforcement bracket (inside red box) and the front spindle (yellow line) also looks like a Corvette piece since the spindle looks like it attaches to the lower ball-joint on the underside of the lower a-arm like a Corvette from that era does. That probably means the brake caliper mounting bracket is from a Corvette as well. It would be nice to see the parts when they are cleaned up and you can see some of the casting numbers.

To make the car a roller there is currently a 10-bolt under it.

The '69 Camaro owners who prepared their cars for road racing (Trans A, IMSA, etc) who purchased the OTC Heavy Duty disk brake rear .. in all likelihood used converted Corvette front brakes along with the rear, at least that was my understanding gained from a friend racer.  In fact, didn't the 'green sheets' papers (first power book) actually recommend that approach?

Here is a picture of the sway bar that was sitting inside the car when I bought it...

Someone asked for the back of the Precto Plate?
