Thanks for the pics.Are both spindles marked the same? white and orange.Any blue markings? thanks John

I did not find ANY blue on the spindles on my car, blue in other locations, rear end pinion, drag link, & back side of the discs.

On my car I just replaced what I found, with Testors & Pactra model enamel paint and a small brush.

I believe they were all made by AO Smith so I am under the impression they did.

Thanks James. I knew from my Mid-Year Corvette buddies that AO Smith made some Corvette bodies but I had know idea on the frame with the Camaro.

A.O. Smith made 50% of the 1964-1967 Corvette bodies at their Ionia, Michigan plant, and they made ALL Corvette frames from 1953-1982 (1953-1962 and 1968-1982 in Milwaukee, and 1963-67 in Granite City, Illinois. As I recall, the 1967-69 Camaro subframes were made by Chevrolet at the Bristol Road Stamping Plant in Flint.
