Thanks James, that is great news, my car is a factory ac car too and I intend to keep it that way. I would love to find out who built that car and ask him a few questions (like did he use the taller bb motor mount frame bracket on the driver side). I'm assuming it had the SS hood?

Do your own homework.......but I believe '67 intakes are lower than the later years. Might get you where you need to be.
I believe 67 tri-power (L71) had higher intakes then in later 68/69 years. If someone needs I have a 69 Camaro with a original cross-ram with repro steel hood if measurements are needed. I remember 67 Camaro with L71's fitting under the hood and it was way COOL.

I've only ever owned the 69 version pictured above, the intake seemed to me to be pretty flat and I had previously read what Chick says, that the earlier versions were taller. I'd really be interested in seeing the bottom of that hood ( "original cross-ram with repro steel hood"   ) if it differs from original round hole ZL2 hoods.
