My dad was looking at a base 69 camaro about a year ago. It had the base 307 in it but had X-11 on the trim tag. Not sure it was the original motor but i think it was.

Does this jive with your experiences?
I do not have the protecto plate. I understand these are really hard to come by.

so, without a protecto plate and original engine and tranny, this car is unidentifiable?

When I bought my 69 RS/SS I was SPECIFICALLY looking for a car without matching numbers. I wanted to drive it without worrying about mileage or breaking some irreplaceable original part. IMHO, your price is fair for a non matching car that needs a little TLC.

I appreciate your input and vote of confidence. This may just be the worst time in three or four years (given the market fluctuations, used car prices, and gas prices) to sell a car like this.

Ha. Yeah, I'm pretty much married to mine for now but that's okay as I'm not looking to sell. Hope things turn around, though. You try ebay? I bet you'd get your price there...

I would also post in the classifieds on http://www.pro-touring.com/ and http://www.lateral-g.net.

Good luck!

Ebay is better than autotrader. I buy/sell most of my cars through ebay.

X11 doesn't automatically make it an SS, but it is the correct code for an RS SS 350 car. Does the car have the 12-bolt rear axle and front disc brakes? If so, that is even a better case of it being a real SS. If it has the 10-bolt or drum brakes, it is definitely a clone.

Your price is about right, even if it is a clone.
