fingers crossed and thanks

Just to update this I contacted Summit with the pics and they confirm it is a first generation Camaro 67/69 so thanks for the help guys. I really hope it is as I am expecting delivery tomorrow of full front end rebuild with bigger sway bar, manifold & carb etc. Time to get busy.

Norm3 Thanks, I am going to replace all the bushes etc. so maybe a new sway bar too. I'll see what parts I can track down.

Jake Brake Nova or camaro rear steer with a brake kit on it. looks like metric calipers With air bags look to switch the front sway bar to a little bigger one. It helps a lot.

enjenjo It could also be 68 to 74 Nova, functionally the same subframe as the 67 to 69 Camaro, and many of them came with disc brakes.

Norm3 Thanks Guys, that was quick. I am not sure of the stud pattern other than it is a five stud. It has what look like Vintique wheels with two patterns ie 10 holes. I will measure up at the weekend and see if I can work it out. I will do some more research on the 67-69 Camaro route to see what I can come up with. I sent the pics to Real Steel to see if they could help but no reply yet.
Now I need to find out what carb I have on the 305 so I can rebuild it, some old single barrel leaky thing, might be best to replace with a four barrel and a manifold, but I'll save that for another post.
Came with an English MOT but lots to do to pass our Isle of Man test, oh well spanners ahoy!

Thanks again

MARTINSR You know what, they may be original, I was thinking, the 67-68 had a four piston caliper I am pretty certain but the 69 I believe was single piston so it could be a 69 subframe.

bks ??

the calipers look like gm metric's.. early '70's

MARTINSR Yep, 67-69 Camaro. 70 and up had front steer.

And those aren't stock brakes so you are going to have to do some research to come up with the pads.

flynbrian48 Looks like an old Camaro or Chevelle, what with the rear steer and all. What bolt pattern is it?
