I have a new gm one that was supposed to be for a 302 several years ago.  I will have to look but not sure the dipstick is on the same side

I doubt there is a reproduction oil pan that is identical to the original. Even GM replacements are not identical.

Bob Harris supposedly has the tooling to make the GM replacements.  Camaro Specialties in East Aurora NY.   You might look there.

the part number on my gm pan is 00360450.  I did see some pictures online but not sure if they still have them.  I might have bought this 6 or 7 years ago

Agree, I had a GM NOS service replacement purchased in 1979 and it was much different from original. Here u can see som differences.

This listing states that the seller can add windage tray rails to their service replacement oil pan.
1968 - 1974 Camaro , Chevelle, Nova Reproduction of Original (Z/28 Pans Also) | eBay


If the regular production '69 Camaro small block oil pan is externally the same as the Z/28 pan could you not remove the baffle and install windage tray rails?
I understand that sheet metal work, welding, templates and patterns would be required but it seems like a doable project if the information was available.


The production '67 pans appear to be externally the same as the '67 Z-28 pans so this is what I intend to do for my '67 302 build. So far I've collected a couple of 3-step production pans and removed the baffle from one of them although the project is now waiting for me to develop metalwork/welding skills. I'd also like to obtain more detailed information on the rails to add to the photos I've saved. From the photos I've got, it appears that the '67-'69 windage tray rails (scrappers?) are very similar.

$275 to tack weld 2 strips of steel??? On top of the $200 for the pan???  I would take a swing at it with my MIG welder on a standard GM pan before paying that much.  Click the link below for a picture. 


Original? no, but functional, yes.
