Both the 68 & 69 AIM call out 3 speedo clips. 68 AIM UPC M20 A6
Both the 68 & 69 AIM under UPC 0, A8.5 & A9 respectively, call out two holes to be drilled.
Our 68 did not have 3 speedo clips and two other 69's I'm aware of only have two.
Just wondering if two clips is a common sight among NOR Camaro's.
The other thing found today on a NOR May built Z/28 was a difference in the two clips.
We took the one out near the front of the trans tunnel and it is a totally different design
from the one on the cowl even though the AIM calls out 377324 for all three.
I know of one 68 that only had one clip! What do you have on your 4-speed cars?
Here are the two clips!

To me, they look like they are the same clip except the lower one pictured looks like someone has folded it over backwards and made a real meal out of it..

I have a 10A '68 built Norwood 69 Camaro that does not have the speedo clips on the underside of the floor and I have looked pretty hard for evidence. Original Muncie car.

Steve, the repro clips are not correct so original Muncie 4-speed clips can be somewhat of a challenge to find. The clip in question we took out and it was folded differently and sure seemed like a different type clip with the same type fastener (that goes in hole). We have no reason to believe this clip was removed, reworked and put back in. The fold for holding the cable is opposite.

My 69 Z28 (Norwood car) only has two speedo clips. The one on the firewall and the one nearest the tranny. There is a dimple in the lower firewall/tunnel area where the other speedo clip hole should have been drilled but wasn't.

It may never have been removed, but looking at just those two pictures, there appears to be signs of folds and creases on it that are remarkably similar to the first "normal" clip shown.
There is no doubt, going by it's poor condition and contour, that someone at some time has had a go at it.. I have never seen speedo clips bent backwards like that and I wonder why would GM have made two different styles of clip to do the same job in roughly the same place on the same car?
I could be wrong. Smiley

Could be correct Steve but the reason for me asking question similar to how many clips does one's car have. AIM calls out three but is that the norm? How many clips do you have?

So Mark your 68 only has (one) the cowl clip?

Thanks montgomg! Intersting for sure.....

 I just checked and found my 67 NOR 05B w/4 speed Muncie has only 2 holes drilled with 2 clips. One at the firewall (like your picture) and the other near the tranny.

Hi Chick....two, one on firewall/tunnel and the other in front of the crossmember in tunnel, both on passenger side.  No clips around the firewall hole.  Check signature for vehicle.
