Re: 69 SS/RS 396 with Rear Disc Brakes
Joe Oldham, the editor for Cars magazine back in the late 60s had ordered a 69 Camaro SS396 coupe with JL8 brakes. There were what, 206 JL8 cars from the factory, and it is widely believed that all were Z28s. Apparently not ALL were Z28s. As I understood (or assumed) they all came with 15x7 Rally Wheels.
IIRC, Joe's car was an L78 / M40 car. Tuxedo Black with color-keyed Astro Bumper, black vinyl roof cover, an actual stripe delete car for real, base interior, console, no factory gauges, factory power windows, fast ratio power steering plus JL8 brakes. I can't recall the gearing but lets say that it was ordered to do street battle late at night. He stuck it with 15x8 wheels (Keystones maybe?). Gotta be one of a kind.
