I think you are correct. I was looking at the timing chain cover as well.

Cool photo. It appears that a full-size chevy is coming down the line right behind the Camaro.

Looks like the fullsize and the camaro were both built at Norwood and Van Nuys... I'm just curious to know if they were made on the same line at the same time or if that's a pilot line shot like the following posed pic. Note there's no bushings in the rear spring eyes. This pic was probably taken at Lordstown.

Interesting composition! If one didn't know better, and/or didn't think about it too much, one might assume they're gonna drop that body onto a full chassis. :lol:

In a manor they are. As you know the Camaro is and has always been a unibody design. This looks like the entire drivetrain and suspension is set up on a jig of sorts and the body is lowered onto the front subframe and the rear suspension. They just bolt the undercarriage to the body, connect a few wires and fluid lines and the next stop may have been the front sheet metal.

Now this is a timely picture. I had a bright red '68 Bel Air and have thought about building the new '67 Impala that color. This car looks like a two door hardtop with the extra cost corner lights. The fender engine emblem looks like a 327 cu.in. engine designation. Notice the "Woody" wagon in the second line. The light metallic blue hardtop in front of it was a common color at that time also.

The only way to know is if you had the VIN number and could do a trace on it. My guess is it no longer exists.
