I have several hooks in my box. Two I think are like your shorter one, 7 3/8" long. The nut I bet is standard across alot of cars. I have several the same but different spot welds to hold the nut on. One has 4 to hit the corners of the nut. The others have 8; 4 to hit the nut corners and 4 along the flat edges of the nut. Maybe used to place the nut? One has LO stamped on the back too.

I'm almost thinking ignorence was better than bliss.  5 pages and it doesn't seem we have come to any real consensus?  So Paul, do we think maybe, the Zs came with the square jack?  Or LA Zs or LA cars?

My 02D Norwood '69Z has its original jack, and it's a trapezoid.

I also have an 02E Los z28 with a square jack. I do not know if it is original to my car but check out the 1 owner 68 Z on ebay with the original square jack in the truck pic. Ebay item # 19021928041

Funny you should mention that...

Take a look at the trunk photos of this one owner Los Angeles built '68 Z/28 in this Ebay listing.  What do you see in the trunk?  Yes, it's a "square" jack!!     Grin

Yes, I do have Norwood cars in the database with square jacks (as well as trapezoidal jacks), but to be honest, does this prove anything? Jacks are so easily changed.

OK, let's reword that. Any mostly original 1 or 2 owner NOR 68's with square jacks?

I was looking at the '68 AIM last night.  UPC 10, Sheet A2 (Spare Tire & Jack Stowage) list four different part numbers for the jack assembly (column and base)!!  Here they are as listed in the AIM...

3909107   JACK ASM.
3909108   OPT
3927456   OPT
3909113   OPT


Why are there four different jack assemblies??     Huh

Interestingly, the AIM only lists one part number (3919088) for the load rest (the AIM calls it the BRACKET ASM.) for all four jacks!     Smiley

That's because there were four different jack suppliers; the column and base were considered an "assembly" (although they were two different parts), and were to be used "in sets" (that note was omitted from the '68 AIM, but is shown in the '69 AIM). There was only one "bracket" that grabbed the bumper, and it fit all four jacks.

Just amazes me that they would have had different "styles" that did not interchange with the bases.  Seems that would be a mess on the line-unless they were "packaged" as a set in the bins.  That makes sence in my twisted mind!  Looks like we'll have to settle on EITHER as being correct unless Kurt has something up his sleeve!

I don't believe there were multiple styles of jacks. Every 68 jack I've seen has been the triangular style (not the square) like stovebolt's, Ed's, and jack #2. Not to say there couldn't be different versions, but I've never seen them.

There were multiple suppliers of the base, so there's many versions of that. But I'm not convinced the jack had multiple suppliers and, if there were, they would all be the same style (i.e. triangular) to fit the base.

Thanks for clearing that up John!     Smiley

With all this talk about 68 bumper jacks I figured someone may be looking for one so here's one I stumbled across on my local Craigslist for $50.

I don't think that looks like it would fit the Camaro bumper.
