Please help me verify my 1967 Z28 Camaro
« on: August 14, 2007, 09:48:10 PM »
 I am the owner of what I think to be a real 1967 Z28. The issue is
 that when I purchased the car 7 years ago, the trim tag was missing. I
 assumed is was originally an RS SS car, so a badged it accordingly. It
 does have the original bracket for the rear support arm to the diff,
 making it a 12 bolt car. It did originally have a 4 speed, still has the
 original disc brakes and manual steering. When I was doing an engine
 swap this summer, I found a hole that had been covered up on the top right
 of the firewall. It was a hole about 2" tall by 10" long. I am
 currently trying to track down the previous owner who used to race the car. It
 is still a very solid street car. It now has a 350 / 4 speed / 12 bolt rear and none of these were in the car when I purchased it. It is  a  Norwood car. I purchaed it in Illinois, it spent some time in Texas with the previous owner and I live in Colorado. Any ideas on tracking down some
 supporting documentation?? I have sent letters to the previous owner, no response. Vin number: 124377N251190

You might want to try contacting Camaro clubs in areas where the car was known to reside. There are several clubs around- maybe someone remembers the car. Just look at the story Jerry MacNeish relates on his web site Ref his latest aquisition!

Good luck. And, if the car was in the Dallas area, let me know- maybe I can help.

Thats going to be a tough one to prove without the original tag, IMO. Any car can be cut for cowl plenum. Your car has some of the right stuff.
Original rear is gone? That may have helped knowing the ratio.

Bob,
Not sure what part of Colorado you live in, but there is a Camaro club based in the Denver area.  Between Jerry Mac and Larry Christiansen (sp?), you have two of the best Camaro resources in the world.  There is a car show in Arvada this weekend and the Colorado Camaro Club will be in attendance.  Not sure if Jerry or Larry will be there, but there should be some good people there to talk to, show pics to, etc.  Good luck.

Thank you. It no longer has a factory tack. The heater core is for a small block. I have been able to verify that the vin number does fall within the production run of the Z28's built in Norwood.

The glove box decal is there, but no tire size is mentioned, just pressure and number of vehicle in car, etc. I thought that they did not start the wheel size until 1968, but I could be wrong.

The part number on the decal is 3917572 and their is a "G" in the middle of the bowtie. Does this help?

1967 Z28s did not receive a special tire sticker.  They used the "G" sticker.  Many of the early 1968 Z28s did not receive the correct E70x15" tire sticker either, my survivor has the standard "AG" sticker and have seen others with this too.

Sorry I tried to mislead you. Stuff gets jumbled up in the grey matter sometimes. '67 doesn't have the size.
