Didn't they have an optional tire deicer...I thought I read somewhere that they offered a deicer option...A push of a button on the dash set off two bottles of deicer set up in the rear wheelwells...Is this correct and has anyone seen one..Thanks

I have the defroster option in my 67 race car. I wish I had a tissue dispenser instead so I could wipe the tears away when I add up the cost of parts for this thing. LOL

I've heard of another one but I think it only came on 69s. The head lamps washing system. Are the nozzles installed on the bumper or on the metal trim underneath the grill on 69s? Oh John, you forgot the Tic Toc Tac, sorry but thats the one I have.

Jeff,(Hawaiian Camaro), Are you sure that the liquid tire chain was only available in 69? I have a 68 that has squirter nozzels sticking thru the rear wheel wells. The guy at the body shop thought they were part of that option. If you have any other info I would appreciate it. Erik

I wish my drivetrain came better optioned though; 327/210hp, powerglide, and a 10 bolt dogleg rearend with 3:08 gears. I'm in the process of installing a 327/400hp, 350 turbo, and a 12 bolt posi rearend with 3:73 gears.

I'm going by the Illustrated Camaro Buyer's Guide put out by Michael Antonick. He only refers to the Liquid Tire Chain for the 1969 Year. From what I have heard about him and his knowledge on Camaro's i would have to go with him and say only the 69's. I do know that pwople used to fit their own nozzles to be able to shoot water or bleach onto the rear tires to create more smoke for burn-outs. He has a picture on one in his book and it shows 3 bolts holding the carraige (Holder) to the trunk floorpan. would think they deleated it since I for one would not want to keep reaching up into the wheelwell and scraping off all the road grim to keep the nozzle clear.

I have a original 68 chassis service manual for chevrolet,chevelle,camaro,chevy II and corvette and it shows a automatic level control in the back under accessories.This translates to air shocks.Which cars and Dealer or Factory?

Liquid tire chain was only available from about 11/68 to 2/69. If you have a later 69 Camaro catalog you will notice that it is deleted. This being said allot where sold over the counter. I've heard (not that I'm old enough to know wink wink) that people use to put bleach in them to smoke the tires. I of course would know nothing about spinning the wheels.

Jeff, Thanks for writing back. I bet the nozzels in my wheel wells were homemade for adding water or bleach. My car used to be a drag car, so that makes sense. Erik
