SS/RS/Z28 with crossram?
« on: March 31, 2009, 01:39:09 AM »
Could you get a SS/RS/Z28 Camaro with a crossram and a 4-speed?  67, 68, or 69?  Or are these just phantom cars?  Or could you special order one?

Doesn't the SS ONLY come with a 350?  Meaning that you could get an RS Z28 with a crossram with a 4-speed?

Thanks,
Tony Huntimer

crossram never came from the factory. r/s is an option and there are plenty of rs z-28's. none with crossram.

I guess I should have asked if you could order an SS/RS/Z28 and have the dealer install a cross ram intake...?

Thanks Paul!  Much better pictures than my old book by Wayne.  I never knew Edelbrock made a copy of their own.  I thought it was only Offy and Winters that cast cross-ram.

SS/RS         yes
RS/Z28        yes
SS/RS/Z28   NO

Z/28 = 302
SS = 350 or 396

RS is a styling package, most prominent feature being the hideaway headlights.

Tony read these:
The Great Camaro by Michael Lamm
Camaro! Chevy's Classy Chassis by Ray Miller
Catalog of Camaro ID Numbers 1967-93 by Cars and Parts magazine
Camaro! from Challenger to Champion by Gary Witzenburg
The Genuine Camaro White Book 67-85
Camaro by Richard Langworth
The Definitive 1969 Camaro Z/28-SS396 Fact Book by Jerry MacNeish
1969 Camaro Factory Assembly Manual
Camaro Untold Secrets 67-69 by Wayne Guinn
The 1969 Camaro Reference Book by John Hooper

they are not all perfect, (but together they are), and if you are writing a book about Camaro's, your personal library should have the above books.
opinions are like wallets, some just aren't worth stealin'.
