I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess he ordered a 68 in 1967 and mistook what he had.

 Jerry.... how many chambered exhaust systems have you seen for 67 or 68 Camaro's ? What are the odds of him ordering chambered and having it come in the trunk along with the crossram and headers ?

Looks like I started an argument going. I said the car was rare and might have been a one of a kind. It was built for drag racing since I had a strong running Chevelle before that and wanted to stay with Chevy.. The car was a 67 not a 68. The exhaust fit in the trunk because the rear seat seat folded down (before it was removed for racing). The exhaust was in about ten pieces. The front header pipes, two straight back chambered sections, two over the axle pipes, two chamber pipes across the rear and two tailpipes. It also had the multi leaf springs on the rear. How many have you seen with the cross ram, factory headers and heater delete? It was custom built for racing only.

dudes how can you possibly know what came through the back or front door of GM during the no racing policy .just recently i read an article on GM sbc aluminum heads casted in 1958 how rare are those.just a thought

OT - The aluminum heads were not a big success. If they would have worked, they would not be so rare today. ;)

Here is a pic:

Charley.......I would say two chances, slim and none.  Headers were only available in '67 and '68, to order chambered, it would have to be ordered after the GM memo came out (11-25-68) deleting it from std production on Z28 and L78.  That would have to make the car a '69 Camaro.  We all know that no cross rams came in the trunk, so I suspect we'll have to see some photos if any can be found.

Are you aware that when you have a fold down rear seat there is a divider panel that keeps the trunk a separate compartment  ?  Did the factory just ram those pieces thru the divider panel ?

Those aluminum heads never saw production in Corvettes - although they were shown as available in early advertising for the 1960 model year on the "315hp" fuelie, none were ever produced for retail sale (due to porosity problems) and the production engines used iron heads, carried over from 1959. The factory-supported 1960 Camoradi Corvettes for LeMans didn't use them either, although they were made available for those race cars - they used the iron heads instead. The casting porosity problems weren't solved until the late 80's.

We have a pair of those heads now in for repair.  Are they valuable?

Jerry, Jack Podell (Corvette fuel injection rebuilder) has been advertising a pair of those heads at $10K for about three years, with no takers.
