Part identification please

Can any of you gurus identify this part? I was going through some totes to look for my original ignition coil bracket, which I did find and it made my day. I came across this part and can not recall what it is from. I'm thinking '64 to '69. Not sure if it came off a SB or BB, but it looks like it may have came off an intake manifold for something. Maybe part an a/c system bracket?

Re: Part identification please

I think that was for a 68 or 69 Chevelle or Camaro 350 turbo kick down bracket.

TH350 Transmission

The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission wasn't officially offered as an option (RPO) until 1969, although some late 1968 327/275hp Camaros did receive it as part of an internal GM test fleet. The 68 test fleet cars have a unique engine suffix code, EN, and the TH350 should have a date stamp that corresponds to the build date of the car.

When the TH350 was released in 1969, it outsold the Powerglide 78,849 units to 66,423. Like the Powerglide, it was only available with 6-cylinder and small block V8 (Z28 excepted) cars, as the Camaro big-block engines had too much torque for the TH350. The transmission model number comes from the nominal torque rating, 350 lb-ft of torque.

Re: Part identification please

Internal test fleet- not available for public sale. Are you saying some of these may have escaped the fleet and made it into the market? Terry

Not at all. I've never seen a 68 TH350, but then again, I've never seen a bracket like the one pictured either.

Well, I guess we may never know just what this part is. The only thing I do know is that it has Chevy orange paint on it and that it must have came from one of my Chevelles or el caminos over the past forty years.

You two figured it out. It is a kick down bracket for a '69 TH350. Thank you! Now I know what it is and will tag it for identification.
