Jerry MacNeish Stated in the Definative Z/28-SS396 Fact Book that Crossrams were never installed in the Trunk. Though this information was confirmed by G.M. of Canada there is still some controversy as to wether the Norwood may have shiped them in the trunk. Your replies will be greatly appreciated.

Had a high school friend pick up a new 69 Z back then and he had to go to the parts dept to get his crossram set up. Not sure of the Build plant. Bocker Chevy Dealership, Freeport Illinos. Wish I was Bockers kid, he got a new Camaro every year.

The only reason a crossram might have been put in the trunk is if you ordered the car from the dealer and the crossram from the parts department at the same time. Then, if the car came in, was dealer prepped, the parts department might have put the crossram in the trunk so you had everything you ordered. The factory never put the crossram in the trunk. There's a lot of tall tales out there and that's one of them. Oh, you might have had the headers put in the trunk by the parts department as well, but not from the factory.

Once and for all:

For 1969, headers, transistor ignition, and crossram were not Camaro regular production options. Thus they were not shipped with any car from any assembly plant. There is no controversy.

If you wanted these items you placed an order with GMPD.

Perhaps someone may have ordered a Cross Ram system from the parts department and elected to place it in the trunk of their new Z28-but this would be an enormously ill advised location to take it home in. The first spirited corner on the way home would have placed a very nice rear quarter panel dent. (has anyone done this?)

No correction needed.

The K66 transistor ignition was not optional equipment on any 1969 Camaro.

Optional equipment and standard equipment are different terms having different meanings.

And then there's mandatory optional equipment...

You stated that transistor ignition was not shipped with any 69 camaro from any plant. Every ZL1 was shipped from the factory/plant with TI as standard equipment.

So much for the English lesson. Last try:

The original thread concerned optional Hi-Performance items "furnished loose" (Chevrolet terminology) for installation after delivery. For 1967 and at least part of 1968 this included headers and the plenum air intake. A '67 or '68 Z/28 could be ordered with these items; they were placed in the trunk at the assembly plant. Chevrolet never installed them.

A couple of times a year someone stirs up the rumor that the cross-ram, headers, TI, whatever, were optional for 1969 and thus placed in the trunk on a 69 Z/28.

None of these items were available as RPOs for the 1969 model year.

Having done a ZL1 I am well aware they were built with TI. The system was part of the car, not "furnished loose" or "shipped with" the car.

Thanks for the replies guys. The only thing I can think of that was shiped in the trunk from the factory was the door decals for a pace car. Although most were removed and later sold through the parts dept. I had two freinds at work arguing with me over the Crossram topic. The old I heard from a freind who had a freind who said.... Thanks for clearing this up guys. Jeremiah.
