Default Hood Insulation - 1969 Camaro

Hello All,
Did all camaros in 1969 receive hood insulation? Im assuming they did but you know what happens when you assume. Anyway, if they didnt what RPOs did? (Z87 only?). I have spent the past two hours searching this site and CRG for clarification and have not found anything about this particular subject. I probably have overlooked it somewhere, so I'll apologize in advance if I did.

Thanks,

PJ

I always thought it was a condition of option(s) vs. a 'standard' offering in all years.
If you ordered an SS or the RPO-Z87 package you got the Hood Insulation.
Could be wrong, hopefully one of the CRG guys will step in with exceptions

I think all cowl hoods, and Custom interior got the insulation. Nothing else.

It definitely has to do with option packages. Did you search here?

In 69, it was part of Z87, the SS RPOs using the domed hood, and Z28 and SS RPOs using the ZL2 "cowl" hood. For 67-68 looks like it was Z87, SS with domed hood. I don't see it listed for 67-68 Z28 in either AIM, so don't know if the Zs in those years had insulated flat hoods.

Thanks for the responses, they are greatly appreciated.

Eric - Yes, I searched this site and CRG's. I found the section, at CRG, which talked about the Z87 option, which included the hood insulation but could not find anything specifically discussing it. I was able to find a lot of info on who has the best repro kits and the issues around the fasteners however.

Nonetheless what brought this up was a comment from a guy who, I feel, is pretty knowledgeable about 69 camaros. He basically implied that my flat hood Z with standard interior should have hood insulation, but in the past I've read that it was conditional as others have posted. I figured I just heard him wrong which led me to posting here where I can get clarification.

Thanks again,
PJ

Thanks Daniel, I've probably looked at those Visual ID pages 100 times and didn't pay attention to the hood insulation.

So, all Z87, SS and ZL2 cars got the insulation. A flat hooded Z wouldn't unless it had the Z87 interior.

Thanks Daniel! That's a great reference and will now know to check that in the future.

I do have a question to anyone; what are the thoughts around why this was an option and not standard? Just curious....

Thanks again,
PJ

Don't know PJ, but I do know that it was standard on my SS. And what I also know is that I HATED the stuff. It worked like an air cleaner and was filthy. Just try to wash your engine and not have that crap dripping dirt all over it. Plus I washed my car every two days and the engine once a week. Besides, why in the hell does a hood need to be insulated? Horrible stuff.

Fred,
Sounds like a mess for sure. Good thing mine wasn't optioned with one then!!!

Pretty cool you bought your ride new and still have it. BTW's: I checked out your site. After seeing a couple of the videos, a comment I once read from a grizzled racer/poster on another site came to mind.

"If it ain't sideways....it ain't fast. And if you're upside down in a ditch......you did something wrong."

Well, your car is definitely fast.....and well, you almost did something wrong. Glad to see you didn't.

Take it easy...
PJ

New to the site so be gentle Also new to Camaros having just purchased a 1969 SS 396/375 about 3 months ago.

I found this post when doing some research on hood insulation so figured it would be a good place to post my question. I had a leak in my fuel line over the weekend and now my hood insulation is soaked with gas. Between the smell and concern of it catching fire I figured it would be best to change it out. My question is are all insulation pads created equal or should I be looking for something specific? I found this on ebay and before I purchased wanted to make sure I was getting something close to the original part. Thanks for the help!

No, they are not created equal!!! There's the cheap rolled up piece, that is functional, but looks like crap. Then there's a molded piece that is more like the originals but is significantly more expensive. Of course, for an L78, I say go for the good one.

Thanks for the input. Any suggestions of sites to get the good one?

Here's a molded one... http://www.ebay.com/itm/1967-1968-19...06d719&vxp=mtr

As suggested not all are alike but please take some opinions with a grain of salt, some folks just have to paint a very negative picture to support their opinion or choice.

I don't see that yours is wrecked just because it has been exposed to some gas. Set it out in the sun and it will dry out in no time. If you do get a new one and it's not molded you can experiment with mounting it upside down so the fuzzy side is against the hood. A lot of guys like the look that way and it's said to be easier to keep clean.
