My 07B Mountain Green '67 Z-28 built at the LOS plant had spring tags on it, not the paint stripe on the front of the spring. That was an untouched car I bought from the original owner.
Jon, now that you mention it, I think Mike had mentioned that he found some late build LOS cars that had spring tags, your Z may have been one of them. Do you have any pictures showing the tags? I have a set of original Z springs here and I cannot find traces of a paint stripe on them either....maybe had the tags too?............
Or, there is a third possibility in that the spring chart revised date of 3-3-67 shows a change in usage but the assembly line didn't incorporate it just yet in their process?
Maybe a fourth....I am going to study the stripe closer and see if it is coral and just the yellow hue is caused by the rust. What usage is the coral for?
Thanks for the feedback.
Mike, I just dug out my 67 AIM where I had originally started the research on this back in 1995/6 when I worked for Year One. Here is what I have noted from back then. One note is that the spring chart is confusing in the 67 AIM as it has a typo for the BX
code spring which should be 3925816
, and that spring is the coral colored one: coupes w/L30 or L48
. I also mistated that the two I didn't have stripe colors for were BA & BX, but it was BA & BB.
These are my notes from 1995 or so:3925815
: first is white stripe and supersede had a yellow stripe, 1220 lb spring3925816
: coral stripe, 1310 lb spring 3925817
: purple stripe, 1370 lb. spring
Now at one time all 6 springs were available at the same time, but they didn't always correlate to the 67 AIM when compared to the ones shown in the Feb 69 P&A 34 manual listed below: 3928515
- 67 Camaro coupe, 250 (ex spc rr spring) white stripe3912527
- 67 Camaro 6cyl. yellow stripe 3925816
- ***No 67 applications shown
68 Camaro spt.cpe (327) exc. spec perf susp, 4spd)
- 67 Camaro spt.cpe(230 & 327) (exc. spec perf susp) coral stripe 3925817
- *** No 67 applications shown
68 Camaro spt cpe w/spec perf suspension (exc. 350 & 396)
*** This spring was disco'd in 2/74 per my notes from Mike @ Eaton.3901397
- 67 Camaro spt cpe w/spec perf. susp. (exc 350)
67 Camaro spt cpe (302, 350, 396) purple stripe
Confused? I am!!!...................RatPack.....................
