My 68, NOS period correct version. Car is unfortunately in the bag till spring…

Steve 

Steve, this pic and the one of the box might be clear enough to put in the article.  Would it be possible to send the full file size photos to my email?  I will message you direct with my email address.

Thank you all.

Still looking for the 67 light with bulb and wiring attached.

If you want them, I can post up a couple good photos from an old eBay auction, of a NOS over the counter 987028, which is listed in the August 1966 P&A Catalog for Camaro, and all other Chevrolet models.  It has the single mounting hole, stepped bracket, and long wiring.  I've no idea what the difference is, if any, between it and the 3903402 "Lamp Assembly" listed in the AIM.

Bryon,  I have a '67 RS/SS that has the underhood light installed with a bulb and the wiring in place.  My car has been restored, but there is no reason I know of why it should look any different than what it would have looked like originally.   Let me know if you would like me to send you some photos.

I find it interesting the 180 degree flip from 67 to 68.

Looks good.  Remember, the lamp is always mounted on the same side as the dipstick...

Jeff, correct. We knew that before we started writing the report.

I sent you a PM.

So it appears the 67 AIM illustration for cars with hood insulation - Sheet A2 - with the wiring shown on top of the insulation and using two of the insulation plastic clips to hold the excess wiring, was not followed. Also the metal wiring clip at the light is in a different location - bracket versus the bulb shield. It will be interesting to see if there was any difference between NOR and LOS cars.
