Thinking of selling my 69 RS/SS
Looking to sell my '69 RS/SS camaro. It is a black plate, white with orange stripes (under the clear) restomod RS/SS. As far as I know it is a true RS/SS. It was a Van Nuys build so it's hard to tell but I was told the 12 bolt is original to the car and it is my understanding that 12 bolt rears only came with the SS. I searched for this car for a year and bought it from a guy in Chico, CA who owned the car for 30 years before restoring it. I have his receipts which are over $60k (that does not include the car itself) and mine which are close to $10k. Based on his documentation, the paint alone was over $20k. I would be asking around $47k.
Here's the list of the build from the guy I bought the car from. I have since installed the FAST EZ-EFI fuel injection system as the carb was a menace on hot days. It now runs great and starts immediately with the turn of the key. I have also spent a grip of cash fixing odds and ends over the last few years. You could not build this car for the price.
Here's part of his original listing:

Here are a few videos (also posted below) that I've taken for a few interested parties:
Let me know if you are interested and I will get you some more pics. Title in hand and in no hurry to sell. Inspection welcome and encouraged since we are dealing with a 40 year old muscle car. I'm in Los Angeles.
You will REALLY REGRET selling that beautiful car. If I had $47k I would ruin your day and buy it.
DO NOT SELL.
A BEAUTY FOR SURE
What a beautiful car.I know how you feel.I sold my 56 Chevy wagon a few years back (wife got sick).Things got better and bought my 2010 camaro knowing I could just get in it and drive it.Not have to worry about it getting wrecked ,stolen, and having to work on it.It hurt for awhile ,but every time I climb in the camaro I realize I made the right decision.Best of luck to you and whom ever gets it will surely get a gem.
Yeah, I'm still on the fence. It took a long while to find this car but I would sell it if the right buyer came along. I've had casual offers at car shows, gas stations, etc... but never really thought about selling until lately. I drive the kids to school in it occasionally and to the local Supercar Sunday event most weeks. I bought the car with 250 miles on the restoration and it now has a little over 2k since I bought it 2 years ago. It's a fun ride that gets a ton of attention!
Just something special about a 69...
wow, I would love to add that Camaro to my collection.
oh come on keep the twin set up lol
SWEET car :D
That is too nice of a pair to seperate!
Thats one beautiful car. If I win the Lotto tonight I will be calling you in the morning. :headbang: :wub: :chevy: :thumbsup:
^ I agree if I win you will be getting a call
Sent from my DROIDX
I guess nobody won, huh? :)
absolutely beautiful 69. put in a 6 speed and then it will sell fast. IMO
Gorgeous car.......................diggin' the dog dishes.
Still in no hurry but thought I'd give it a bump... :)
Beautiful car it sucks that your selling it. If I had the cash i would defiantly buy it.
If I had the money it would be gone. Would love to have a matching combo
Awesome Car! Good luck with the sale
Man, those cars look great together. I wish I had an old nice one like that to match mine. I can't believe you want to sell it but if you must, you must. Good luck.
