My LOS 68D has all 3.

05D 68 Z  I mustn't have had my glasses on for that one!

Show-off.

On a more serious note, I would really really like to buy one fo the original clips if someone can part with one.

Yea, and I need one also!

Well for sure so far it has been a mixed bag from 1 to three. I have only looked at 5 cars recently of which one had one clip and the others all had two. The clip hole (assume where the dimple was) in the tunnel seems to lie around 2.5" back from where the lip of the firewall goes underneath and overlaps the floor.
After more review I agree with Steve that what I first thought might be a different clip in the tunnel was just the same clip totally bent around (changed config.). Wish I had known of this while at Frederick and Carlisle. :)

Any chance these clips are installed some other GM cars also? Something more likely to be seen in a junk yard like a Nova or something? I got a few repros from HBC recently and they're nice, but they don't look like the originals.

When I first started this thread I thought maybe there was a different muncie speedo cable clip used in the tunnel area as my friends 69Z had the one pictured at the beginning of this thread but as pointed out maybe it was just all twisted about. Our 68Z was taken off the road (taken apart) in 1979 prior to our purchase 30 years ago so much of the hardware/clips/etc. was taken off by the previous owner. A few things he bagged but most hardware was put in multiple cigar boxes. Previously I had only found one muncie speedo clip and was asking for another but today I found another clip just like the one that was on the 69Z in the tunnel area holding the speedo cable. Now I'm really thinking there was more than one type used.......
Has anyone else seen these clips? This clip was full of grease/debris that one would assume from the underside of the car.


After a little cleaning-

It l looks like standard clip that has been bent around 180 degrees to me.

Look at the form in the steel! You do not bend one around 180 degrees and keep that form along with the two outward indents. When formed the indents wouild be to the outside and not inside as it would have been if bent around.

You can see where it was "un-bent" from its original configuration; there was only one clip, used at all locations.

I compared your clip to a original spare clip I have and I could easily bend my clip to same configuration as yours shown in the photos.

Compared the clip to one of my originals and you Copo are 100% correct. Should have done that to begin with so bad on me. It is somewhat interesting that two different cars had similar bent clips but the bottom line is they are the same.
Thanks for checking!

My 3D LOS car was blessed with three. One was bent over...the "factory" undercoating seemed to preserve the two lower ones.

I look at wrecking yards for them as well, as one of mine is in rough shape...and I remember Lynn looking for some a while back.
Unfortunately I have never seen one on another car...

Bring this topic up again in the near future.  I have a wrecking yard in Vancouver WA that has about 14 wreaked 1st gens.  Most have been stripped to nothing, but I could check for the clips in the future.
