350 with a 4 speed we think it has a performance cam. the body rust is mostly surface rust. the only body panel or whatever u want to call to it to make it safe is the rear shock towers. and brakes to stop safely. it has a rebuilt quadrajetcarb and hooker headers. it needs work but i would kill todrive it on the road

Sounds good enjoy it. I had one back in 69 but when I got divorced in 79 my ex ended up with it. I have always love the style of the 69.

Bro!
That car is in great condition! Cool piece.
350 4 speed....factory spoiler, original rally wheels.....
Is that interior original? If it is get those tools off that seat.
Nice door panels.......
Looks like an A/C car?

Post a picture of the engine.

If you post the trim tag info, I'll tell you what it is.

Check the VIN on the engine block to see if it matches the VIN on the car.
The check the VIN stamp on the transmission (near the case seal) to see if it matches too.!
The codes on the rear-end will tell you what it is.

Does it run?

Don't touch anything until you check all the codes to see how untouched it is.
There are collectors who pay BIG money for untouched stuff...even if they are a little rough.

69s are fetching a premium right now......rusted out rollers are $8-10K....
If your parts are original, thats a very valuable car.

Do you know the registration history?

Drop the gas tank to see if the build sheet is there....sometimes, but mostly not.

I hate that color....but very nice piece!

And for god's sake get it indoors! Something could fall on it.

Sorry, I just have to ask more questions......
What is up with the rear antenna? replaced with electric?
Is the radio AM or AM/FM and does it work.....those puppies, if they are working are like $800, more for AM/FM...like $1200.

Take a picture of the Trim tag on the cowl under the hood next to the Brake booster........pictures are decpetive but paint might be Azure turquoise...which is ugly but rare.

If its the original 350, it would be an LM1, 255 horse car.....not alot of power but if original very valuable...could have an M21 transmission...those are like $1600.

And what is up with those right angle tail pipes? You're gonna lose some power with those.

Anyway take inventory......and pictures.

we think it was redone somewhat when my mom bought it. yes it has a non operational power antennae with the factory am radio which was reinstalled as its in the dash but not wired to work before my mom bought it as their is 2 6x9 pioneer speakers in the back deck.it sat for 20 years roughly in a steel building and yes it runs. we did a fluid change primed the engine. the air filter cover says 350 with 295 horsepower engine. which we think it has a cam. and headers. my mom pretty much bought it like this that many years ago. it does have ac and the door panels are in good shape just needs a good wipedown. and this car is not going to be sold for parts as i am slowly making it road legal and safe and it was just outside as i was doing small work on it. it stays in a steel shed thats locked up. i dont know the registration history. i dont intend to restomod it. i just want it to look look like and run like it did when it came from the factory. im slowly getting it going. the interior i believe is original

Is that the original color or was it Fathom Green? I do not recall seeing that many Azure Turquoise '69's.

Here are the 1969 RPO codes: http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/parts/69rpo.htm

If thats the original interior...its in great shape!
Yeah, with the 4bbl Ro, they slapped the 350/300 stickers on em, but also 350/295 if they had air.

As you go through it, don't throw anything away.......the collector industry, due to all the counterfeiting, has transitioned to valuing original condition cars just as much as frame off restos....Z/28s and SSs. Why? because its easier to determine an original car versus trying to authenticate a resto...

For example, if your car has all the original parts....carb, intake, heads, block, transmission, etc. and that interior, its easily as much (as it sits) if not more than a fully restored SS 350 car. Original condition cars are rare and getting more rare.

So when you're putting it around, just remember it could be worth more than your late model camaro. And be careful, cuz its easily stolen, and probably not insured for what its worth.

One my favorite years next to the 1967-68 Camaro. I like how Camaros didn't have to be an SS to come with a V8 back in the day.

Thats one of my favorite configs of the early camaros. Although the Z/28 was the hardcore enthusiasts car, the 350, 4speed car with A/C was the sportsmans car, the driver....because it had power and air conditioning. Thats the car I would've bought....because I like A/C in the summer....and the rated HP of the Z/28 wasn't higher than the 350/295.

And it wasn't necessarily cheaper than a Z/28....the A/C option was around $400....not alot by todays terms....but with the base price of the car around $2700, thats a 15% zap for a buyer......easy decision now....but I would've bought AC over Z/28 back then.

There's a book... Chevrolet by the numbers.....
It will should you how to read the casting numbers and the date codes for all the "important" parts.....even the waterpump.

Those rally wheels are date coded too......so don't throw that front ugly one away....they are too hard to find.

Post a pic of the engine compartment...I'm dying to see it and the intake manifold....whats the casting number on that?

Your tires actually don't look too bad....I would focus more on cleaning....tires are last.

The car needs a deep cleaning.....clean the engine comparment with a degreaser and a toothbrush. And get hold of a buffer and rub the paint out with some 3M "perfect it" rubbing compound to remove all the oxidation from the paint. Then sand those rusted areas down to the metal and put some primer on em to prevent any further oxidation.

And cut those right angle tail pipes off...those look silly.

That's a pretty odd combination of options. Base car, Non-SS with 350, disc brakes, 4-sp and apparently A/C. Nice....

Don't forget the factory rear spoiler (I'm assuming, but the paint match looks good) and the hockey stripe.......

I've seen less for sale for $20K

I wonder what rear end is in the car......most likely a 10bolt 1 legger, but a posi would be cool and a 12 bolt would be fantastic)
