67 camaro what do i have?
« on: March 22, 2008, 07:08:58 PM »
I just found this great site last night, and while I thought I knew alot about first gen Camaros, this has shown me how much I don't know. So here goes.

I have a 67 coupe that I bought just before it was scrapped nineteen years ago. It had no drive line at all, and the entire interior was missing. But I bought it as a shell to put my parts from a 68 into. At the time I bought it I didn't know what it was but what I've found out so far intrigued me. So here are the facts:

Vin; 124377n172561

trim tag;

General motors corporation
01B                             R
ST   67-12637 NOR 72740  BODY
TR  732-Z       F-F             PAINT
WL  2LGSR    3BD
4P   5Y
    BODY BY FISHER

I've decoded the tag so I know it might be a ss350 or a 327 4bbl ( It still bad the ROUND radius bar bolted to a plate bolted to the body) I have no build sheet, nor any other clues that i can find other than the front had drum brakes.


SO HERE'S THE QUESTION: WHAT IS THE CHANCE THAT THIS WAS ACTUALLY AN EARLY Z-28 ?????

 Front drum brakes would indicate not a Z/28.

Just by judging build date and info on CRG, an 01B car with a radius rod and drum brakes, my guess is SS350. Other people who know more will chime in on this I am sure. Posting some pics of what you have and of the firewall may yield more clues.

The trim tag indicates a 4 speed car and the speedo cable location can be a clue as to an SS or L30/M20.

The 4P on the vin plate does mean ss350. Congrats!

Actually based on the 01B date 4P could mean SS350 or L30 M20.

wish it had the speedo cable, but that was gone too.

any other clues to look for to make a final determination?   I've already looked above the headliner, and the tank was gone when i got the car.

Assuming there is no other way to determine if it is an ss350, would it be wrong to badge it that way and say that is is an actual ss350?? opinions??

Is it original paint?  SS should have a bumble bee stripe on the nose, stripe was I believe optional on other cars, so no stripe original paint would indicate L30 M20, but stripe would not prove anything. SS should have an SS hood, 327 should not.  

Don't know where you are, but there are experts on this site. Post some photos, including the trim tag.

You're looking for a hole in the firewall, kinda above where your right foot sits.
Post a pic of the firewall.

If Radius Rod was factory installed, isn't the car too early to be an L30/M20 with it?

No, it could be a L30/M20. The change happened about then.
