FS: Rally Green 1969 Camaro RS/SS

After 15 years and innumerable drops of blood, sweat, and tears, my dad has decided to try to and sell his absolutely gorgeous 1969 Camaro, and since he's not interested in paying for AutoTrader, we're trying some cheaper [free] alternatives, and I figured that I'd offer those of you on C5 the first opportunity to nab it (or at least just show it off ).

This isn't your typical 1969 Camaro. A true RS/SS that has had countless hours put into restoring it to a prime condition. What it comes with:
- 489 stroker motor
- 700R4 (3k stall) automatic transmission w/ Overdrive
- 12 bold rearend (410 posi)
- Rally Sport appearance package
- Factory cluster gauges
- Air conditioning
- Power windows
- Power brakes
- Power steering
- Deluxe interior (Green)
- Fold-down backseat
- Rear-window defroster
- Original CA car (Black/yellow license place)
- Less than 3,000 miles on engine
- The most expensive paint the bodyshop ever produced
- Color-correct Rally Green (more gold flake as opposed to silver; a common issue with this color, part of the reason it was so expensive)

For comparison's sake, of the 243,085 1969 Camaro's produced:
-1,410 had the tachometer
-2,359 had the AM/FM stereo with 4 speakers
-3,058 had power windows
-4,397 had the fold-down back seat
-7,912 had the rear-window defroster
-20,330 had the electric clock
-44,737 has A/C (wasn't compatible with the h/o 396)
-141,607 had power steering
-34,392 were Super Sports
-37,773 were Rally Sports


With the exception of the engine, trans, and paint, these are all FACTORY-ORDERED OPTIONS, making this one of the rarest Camaro's to ever grace the roads. The 489 was hand-built with quality parts and tuned perfectly.
This is an award-winning car, tallying 3 if I remember correctly, and generates significant amounts of interest at car shows. It's even been featured in a Headman Headers catalog (a copy of which is included).

He's selling for a number of reasons, mainly being that he'd like to move on to a 2002 Camaro SS (6-speed ). I'm also going to college next year and having the extra money lying around would probably make him feel a little more comfortable about that. $80,000 o.b.o.

If you're still in your chair after that one, here's some pictures of the gem:






If you have any questions or are interested, feel free to drop me a PM. I'll get back to you ASAP. Located in Whittier, California.

I think it would definitely help if the original drive train was available.

I agree that it would help, but the engine was already replaced when he picked it up 15 years ago. Since he couldn't tell whether it was originally a 350 or a 396, he just went with what he wanted, then figuring that a 489 looks identical to a 427 from the outside in, he put that monster in there and not without a lot of work.

He's actually been offered fairly close to that, even more recently. A friend offered him $80,000 last year ($60,000 and $70,000 prior to that), and a guy at the Whittier Car Show back in August said he would match that or even take it higher.
It's not like he has to sell it immediately either. I think he's just testing the market right now to see if there are any takers. Something tells me that he could hold onto it for another couple years without breaking a sweat.

Wow...that is a really high price tag. I understand you say the car is really rare and being that I know 1969 Camaros fairly well I would be really curious to know what makes this car so rare. If it does have some about it that does make it exceptionally rare that may justify some of that pricetag. Being that a real 427 COPO can be had now for right around $100k it may be a tough sell but great luck and I look forward to hearing (seeing) more about this car.

Any more details on this car? What makes it rare? Why is it worth the asking price? I love 1969 Camaros and would love to hear more about this car.

Beautiful car but I'm with this guy... There are 2 numbers matching Camaro's on Ebay one a 396 SS, and the other a Roger Peck 1 of 3 Pace Cars for 40k and 55k respectively. I'd also like to know why 80k rarity is on the plate?
