The picture was taken March 31, 1967. The spoiler was not really available in '67 but there may have been a few made by GM that were given to a few select racers. In some instances, some racers made their own. Bob Tucker, who built Joie Chitwood's Camaro, told me he was supplied with a blueprint for the spoiler prior to Daytona (late January '67) and he built it out of wood using the blueprint as a guide for the dimensions.

thats a cool story. So there might be a wood one out there somewhere still? I am somewhat surprised with all the custom work the hot rodders were doing back then that he wouldn't of choose fiberglass. So it sounds like a spoiler on a 67, in 67 isn't unheard of, it just wouldn't have left the factory with one?

Jon, I have been wanting to ask, are you putting that 1/4 mounted gas cap back on? Looks like you are creating the "as raced" look.

Correct, no factory installed spoilers in '67 on a regular production Camaro.

Yes, I plan on putting on the flip-top gas cap and it is being restored as it was when it raced.

No problem, Jon.  Take a look at that website when you get time, because there are a few more photos of your car...

There are many cars in this collection I have not seen, or have not seen in the color configurations pictured.
Many 67 Camaro's some with 68 front ends.

That is the car that Donohue drove in the race as #15 so the photo must be taken during a practice session. This car went to Terry Godsall's team in Canada after this.

Jon,

My official production date is 6/14/67. Doesn't exactly match my UOIT. No surprises otherwise.

That's pretty interesting, Fred. Maybe on the UOIT it was when it was started and on the NCRS docs, it's when it was finished.  Huh
