Were the engine lift brackets painted or unpainted steel for a DZ engine? How about other engines. I have heard that not all engines had them when they left the factory. That they could have been removed and reused.

1968 and 69 Z28's have engine lift hooks and they were painted Chevy orange.  1967 Z28's do not have engine lift hooks.

No debate, I have three survivor cars in my shop now and have seen dozens at shows over the years.

Interesting that some were painted silver.  Doesnt seem like there were were many parts that were finished with silver paint on these cars.  Usually plated or just left natural.

Can we assume that all small blocks in 67 lacked lifting brackets?

I put a set on my resto and not looking forward to taking them off!

How were engines rigged at factory..or perhaps they were removed after use...thanks

1967 model year does not use lift brackets.  Have seen original '70 Camaros with silver or natural lift hooks.  Weird, but have never seen an original 1st gen Z in natural or silver.

My group at the Chevrolet Pilot Line developed the new assembly plant engine hooks and lifting brackets for all GM car lines in 1967 for the 1968-69 model years. Prior to 1968, engines were carried by the exhaust manifolds - left side of the photo below shows how many hooks a plant needed to carry C-B-O-P engines in 1967, and the right side shows the only two hooks necessary in 1968.  Smiley

That is almost humorous as it is unbelievable to anyone introduced into manufacturing from the 1990's forward, I can't imagine how many man hours were exerted towards the switching of these... man hours which could have been building vehicles... wow!
