How to Confirm ID of 1967 A/C Controls?
« on: June 16, 2018, 04:30:20 AM »
My 67 doesn't have A/C.

About 20 years ago I broke the defroster lever in my dash heater control, a common problem.

Back then they didn't make a replacement repop, and I ended up fixing it with a tiny piece of metal, a couple of screws, and good ole JB weld.

Before I did the repair I tried to buy a used replacement control set, but the seller sent me a set with A/C controls. I ended up keeping it thinking I might add A/C someday and it would be nice to have.

Now I'm looking at it and I can't figure out how to confirm that it is even from a Camaro, more less specifically a 1967 as advertised back then.

Can anyone tell me about it based on the pictures? I don't see anything that looks like a date code, is there one or am I missing it?

Thanks for any info.

That's a mid 68 control.

Below is the 67 (top picture), and very early 68 / mid 68 (bottom picture).

I had some thoughts on this but nothing solid. 

But I had a feeling that Ed would have answers for you.  :)

Thanks Ed, So really these can be ID'd simply by looking at the face and there isn't anything significant about all the numbers inside. Good to know.

I have my original controls out of the car to replace the control cables and bezel, which is what got all this started.

I'm wondering if I should go ahead and replace the fan switch, do those go bad? I see they are available now.

You might get a kick out of my half-ass JB-Weld repair, that repair worked, but unfortunately I went a little crazy and epoxied the tabs that I broke getting the case apart.
