heck, I'll give this one a shot...Didn't the 64 stand have chrome trim on the hood, and the 65 didn't?? And as far as the bonus, another guess, they changed from Gen. to Alternator...Once again a guess..I think I remember ready that they changed that over very very early on in the 'stangs life....

If I am far off, then don't laugh too hard..lol

scr8pin

I just saw that the difference was with the seat, so I am clueless on the bonus...I'll guess that they added the chrome trim to the back edges of the seat..??

Nope and nope. The hood is physically different, not just the chrome. The seat, again is different and more than just how it looks.
Yes they did have the generator to alternator change.

I'm going for the big time bonus points...

I believe the difference in the seats was that the passenger's seat was not adjustable.

You are correct, the passenger seat was not adjustable until May 8, 1964. This changed again before the 64 was over I believe.

"Very early hoods had folded over lip, no dimples, and no holes for leading edge chrome trim. Intermediate hoods have unfolded lip, small dimples, and no holes for chrome trim. The intermediate hood with the unfolded edges was also used on early 65 cars. Later 65 hoods have the lip folded again, have small dimples, and add the holes for the chrome trim. Later replacement hoods and 66 hoods have larger dimples than the 65 hoods, and still have the folded lip with the holes for the chrome trim."

Found that on the web.

If you ordered a 1970 Camaro with the optional 350hp 396ci BB engine - what (2) other features did that car come equipped with?

I have never known them to go back and forth with the folded lip. You have the floor 5 Speed. But just for fun, where is this folded or unfolded lip? It never really says exactly where the folded lip is. The "dimples", I have no idea what they are talking about.

The front fenders and extentions are also different, as is the side "Mustang" emblems.

There's a sharp leading edge (front of the hood) where you can see that the hood lip hadn't been crimped properly. It was supposed to be folded under, but the Dearborn assembly plant has a defective die which wasn't producing correct parts.

Question:

Note: I'm not asking what the SS trim package included. I'm asking what did the 396 engine option include.

Black painted rear panel
3.31:1 Rear end gears
and the F41 special purpose suspension package, which included:
Rear sway bar
staggered rear shocks
different rear springs
different front suspension (can't find info, but I assume it just had heavier springs and a thicker sway bar)

Joe, you got it there.

The 1970 Camaro sales brochure states:

"If you still want more, you can order the 350-horse 396-cubic-inch V8. When you order this big one you get a special suspension, with a rear stabilizer bar."

Very good!
