my car has no hardware or mountin locations for the flip seat. If I use it no doubt I will be making parts.
Brackets and hardware are available aftermarket.

I read somewhere the early SS's, (before BB's started in late Dec.) only had the SS Emblem front and rear.  They started the SS 350 Emblem sometime after the BB cars went into production.

You are correct Mike. HERE'S where you read it.

At this time, the only SS was the SS-350 model, and the badges on the car read "SS-350". When the SS-396 was introduced in January 1967, the badges were changed for all SS models to read "SS".

Steve, just pointing out that the rear could be orig, as the early cars didnt have the traction bar. And YES it does nothing. I purchased my car from the orig owner in 1984, it still had the orig ss-350 gas cap. It is a 12d car, so maybe that was after the change. Cool car. Keep us in the loop!

Ed, isn't what Mike asked totally opposite of actual 67 "SS 350" badging and thus incorrect? (early ones used it, once BBs introduced all the SS models used same "SS" fuel cap and grille emblem)

Interesting. So only the early SS 350's had the "SS-350" Gas cap. A friend had one back in the 70's with that cap, so it must have been an early car.

Correct, also the center grille badge.  I'm not sure if it also carried over to the center cap on standard steering wheels.

No, because the 396 didn't use an SS horn cap. It had the standard "Camaro" cap.
