1968 SS hood ornaments
« on: March 01, 2010, 10:56:34 PM »
The site says: For the 1968 model year, the chromed hood trim for SS396 changed from the simulated finned cooler to a set of simulated carburetor velocity stacks. The early 1968 model year SS350 continued to receive the 1967-style finned hood trim, but the SS350 trim transitioned to the velocity stack trim as the year progressed.

I'd like to have some data to document when the SS hood changed from the finned ornaments to the velocity stacks.
So, looking for data from original 1968 SS cars:
Build date, SS350 or SS396, finned or stacks

Thanks!

Kurt, I've had a few 68 SS-350's over the years, but I don't remember the build dates on any of them except one. It was a 09D car and it had fins. It was also an LA car. Don't ask me why I happen to remember this one, because I don't know!

Kurt, I'm wondering if we should go back and ask everyone who responded whether their Camaro is a Norwood or LA car?  Would it make a difference?

Yes, the plant will make a difference. But only on the cars in the transition timeframe.
Grampz, which plant?

It looks like we really need data on cars from the first 3 months of 68 - Sept, Oct, and Nov.
Also be interesting to have some more early 396 data to confirm that they actually used stacks at the beginning of 68 production.

Having a post with a summation every other post takes up a lot of space. No biggie, but don't be offended if I delete or edit down some of the older summation posts. :)

Thanks guys!

As Troy reminded me, the documentation shows the 396 was supposed to have stacks from the start of 68. So far, the cars support this.
So, we're back to the original question: when did the SS350 transition to the stacks? It looks like Oct-Nov timeframe, but the plants may have different timing. More data will help tell the story. :)

SS350
09D   fins      LOS
10B   fins      LOS
10D   fins      NOR
11B   stacks  NOR
03A   stacks  NOR
03B   stacks  NOR
03D   stacks
04A   stacks  NOR
04D   stacks

SS396
09E   stacks  NOR
10E   stacks
12B   stacks
12E   stacks
03C   stacks
05C   stacks
05D   stacks

Thanks guys!

From the information compiled so far, it looks like the ornaments were changed to the "stack" design for the L48's shortly after the drawing in the AIM was changed on 11-6-67.................RatPack...................

Thanks! I added it.

There's a large disconnect between what happened in the plant and when AIM drawings were done. But here is does seem the timing was about the same.
Oct 350 cars have the fins, Nov cars have the stacks. It will take more data to confirm and improve the resolution (i.e. what week).....

I hate to do this but I think this is going to snow ball... :o

Has anyone noticed there are two types of SS Stacks???  One my cars I have a set where the square stacks are chrome all the way to the base and another car where the chrome only goes about 1/4" down... I'll have to post photos later... but I think both have the correct part numbers...

Welcome aboard there blueSS350. Just remember that when submitting information to this part of site, that it means you can confirm your car came originally this way. If you bought it restored there is no way to confirm it is authentic. You will find these replies invaluable to cronical when changes occurred. Hope you get as much enjoyment and information as I and others have and feel free to ask about things that affect your cars accuracy. Again, glad you found the site. there is a wealth of info and some real super Camaro fans here.

Can you post a photo illustrating the differences?
I have looked at the stacks I have and can not understand whether the difference you speak of it a difference in the black paint application or a different design.

Sounds like paint.  I have a set of what I think are 68 fins (as opossed to 67 fins) that have a drain like the 68 stacks. I do not have any 67's or Nova's to compair.
   Anybody have knowledge of a differance, or a picture of the bottom of 67 fins?

Do they appear to have silver paint in the area or is it a textured surface?
It also looks as though the matte silver comes all the way to the top on the outside of the stacks, is this correct?

BTW the inner black out in the bottom of the stacks appears to be anodized aluminum in the originals, are the NOS ones the same?

The outside of the stacks are painted matte silver right up to the top of the stacks. The insides are chrome plated. The base around the stacks are also chrome plated. It's difficult to capture in a photo but there is just a very small amount of overspray where the matte silver meets the chrome plating at the base of the stacks.

Hope this answers your questions.

The reproduction Hood stack frames are very nice however the components when inspected with a close eye are off.

In order to make the repros look correct they need to have the areas around the stacks painted silver,
The backers in the originals are Black anodized the repros are black vinyl over aluminum or stainless.
Black anodizing isn't really black it is more of a Deep Purple color.
The wire in the original screens is .040 Aluminum  the Repros use .035 Stainless.

hmmm....never noticed this before. Here's what I have. First pic is nos, 2nd pic is good used. Wether it is original production line or not I can't be sure.
But it certainly is paint, looks like a dull aluminum.

Thought I would add some input to this topic.  03D L78 Stacks

But the areas between the stacks are not paint or should I say there no signs of having had paint.  Wire is like James mentioned.  0.040"
