Beautiful car!  Glad to see you on here...welcome!  What are the other options on it, and do you know its history?

Your a glutton for punishment with the six banger cars.... :D

It seems like the ones you locate were part of the Chevrolet marine division.... ;D

Have to locate one without the "port holes" all over them.
Very Funny!!!  My favorite saint is St. Jude...the patron saint of lost causes...

Russ...I shipped the gift air cleaner to you today. I'm pretty sure it will solve your clearance issues. Let me know how it works out,

One last shot...the "shot" interior.

Hey Guys...another six banger with 3-on-the-tree on Ebay.  The lack of 250 emblems on the fenders points to this being a 230.  How about the Boss 302-esque side stripe? It appears to have only had one option, an AM radio.  The painted wheels indicate dog-dish hubcaps.  Here is the ad's write-up...neat story:

"In July of 1969, this 1967 Camaro went to its second owner. The second owner drove it until about 36 years ago, when it was parked in a field behind her house, as she was just having her first child and didn't think it was a suitable "family car." She had plans to drive it occasionally, but it never moved an inch. A few months ago, I was contacted by a friend of the owner's son. They were clearing the field out and were finally ready to let the car go to a new home. It's not often you get to see a car that's been untouched for so long. Unfortunately, leaving it outside for so long in the New England weathers took its toll. The front floor pans are gone. The trunk floor is badly rusted, and the leaf spring mounts are rotted out. The rear quarters and fender doglegs are in bad shape. The car needs a lot of work. The good - it's complete. The car was parked running and driving. It's a three speed column shift straight six - MATCHING NUMBERS. Everything is original. There are plenty of original parts still very much reusable. The front cross member is solid, all of the glass is intact (the front windshield has a crack). The roof, hood, and trunk are solid. Three of the four tires are still holding air!"

 I just love strippers...all kinds  8).

I'm posting a couple of pictures of it so it won't be lost to posterity once the Ebay ad closes.  This is a really nice '69 and would probably generate some favorable attention at the Camaro Nats.  It appears to have all of the correct 6 cylinder stuff...2-core radiator, air pump (that seems to be impossible to find...I need one if anyone out there is reading this), air cleaner, the postage stamp-sized fan guard that doesn't protect from anything, etc.  It even appears to have the correct AC radiator cap.  The vinyl top, Rally wheels, and Style Trim group make it look like a V8 car and not a stripper six.  I agree with 69 Z28 RS's comment...the sixes are great little drivers with plenty of power for today's traffic.

After seeing this nice 6-cyl '69 I think I'm going to have my rust bucket crushed.  Hopefully, the future owner will recognize it for its originality and restore it (or keep it as-is) with its born-with drivetrain.

Hey Kevin...I have 9 FC coded from my 02B '68 RS rust bucket, and two matched sets.  One matched set is still painted lovely Frost Green and the wheels are in phenomenally good shape (from a NJ '69 with a 307 that was being made into yet another SS because it had an X11 cowl tag code...boring!).  The other set I believe are 'from a '68 and have been painted primer gray.  I have looked at all of the wheels and can't find any date codes around the valve holes, so I will lightly sand around the holes and see if any date codes are visible.  The "FC" stamps are large and very visible on all of the wheels.  I am interested in your Aug '69 dated wheels for my Sept. '69 car.

Russ, I am so impressed with your '68 L22 clone project that I will donate the correct air cleaner for it for just the cost of shipping.  This air cleaner is from my incredibly rusty '68 RS that was originally equipped with a 230 six and 3-on-the-tree (my avatar is that car).  That car was simply too rusty to save due to 17 years of harsh New England winters that were followed by sitting outdoors for 26 more years with a busted window that allowed the floor to fill with rain water...not pretty!  I went so far as to buy a really nice '68 Firebird body found via CL-Phoenix in order to re-body it, but finally decided to sell it due to the legality of such an endeavor.  It would've been great to show up at a Camaro Nats with the only '68 RS ever built with a six and 3-on-the-tree!  Most of the six cylinders are now converted to V8s, so when I see someone building a six it makes me think that here's a guy with a real sense of style.

PM me and I will send you my cell number.

Kurt and's nice to hear from you both. I jumped on the trans and 3-on-the-tree shift parts as soon as I found them.  One of these days that stuff might actually be sought after when everyone realizes how rare those cars are.  Russ, I noticed the tunnel area around your Tremec swap is rather open.  I have a perfect 1st Gen trans tunnel with a floor shift hole that I will donate to your pay for the shipping (what a freakin' deal!!!).  We have the two nicest hillbilly cars on here.  I'm also glad you are resurrecting your '68 RS with six cylinder power.

I'm in the Columbus metro area.  I will see what dates I have and PM you.

Nice to hear from you, Kevin.  Yes, I'm planning to rebuild the original 250 six (coded "BE" for a manual trans), and maybe I'll add the 307 pistons to juice it up a bit.  I agree with you that the Chevy sixes are peppy...more than capable of keeping up with today's traffic.  It absolutely kills me that there is so little interest in 1st Gen Camaro sixes (and F-birds), but it-is-what-it-is.  Whenever I see some older dude (like me) driving a restored $40k musclecar that gets 10 mpg, I never see him doing burnouts or power-shifting thru the gears. The days of ripping thru the gears in a musclecar are long gone...they are now just rolling pieces of art.  The few classic musclecars I see actually being driven are driven like six cylinders...slow and steady, so doesn't it make sense to restore a six cylinder Camaro with its original drivetrain?  My current plans are to get Snake Eyes (so named because it was full of snakeskins from Rat Snakes) driveable and then cruise around with it in all its hideous glory.  I may even take it to the Camaro Nats next year just for laughs...I guarantee it'll be the only six with a 3-on-the-tree shifter there.

I appreciate the offer of the two FC coded wheels.  I already have two sets (which no one wants because they're for drum brakes), but I may be interested in having a couple of correctly-coded ones.  My car was built 09C of 1969.  Where are the date codes found on FC wheels?

Hey All...I have been on the lookout for a good 3-speed Saginaw tranny and a 3-on-the-tree steering column for my '69 Camaro coupe (Ol' Snake Eyes).  I found what I was looking for on CL-Chicago...the original 3-speed and steering column from a '69 Firebird convertible from Arizona for $300 (I love cheap 6-cylinder parts that no one else wants).  A couple of days ago I drove from Columbus to an hour NW of the Chicago metro area to pick up the parts and see what else the guy had to sell.  He is in the process of swapping the rare OHC6 (base engine with a 1-barrel) with the oddball 3-on-the-tree for a ZZ4 SBC crate motor with a 700R4 (the same as nearly every other 1st Gen Camaro and F-bird).  I was really glad he was making that swap as it provided the trans and steering column I needed to restore my car.  Yesterday I invited my good buddy Tim over to help me yank out the frozen original 250 from my '69, and install the nice running '70 Nova 250 (that I obtained from a CL-Detroit ad for $350) and the 3-speed.  We power-washed the nasty engine compartment and the replacement engine and trans while we were at it.  It took less that 2 hours to install the new engine.  I hope to have Snake Eyes running very soon.

Hey All...found this on Ebay...a '69 Coupe with a 230 and 3-on-the-tree shifter with a starting bid of $13.5k (reserve not met).  Its VIN is 123379N702385, and it has a claimed 81k original miles (probably a little-old-lady car).  The only options I can see are Z23 and an AM radio.  I really do not care for the cowl hood, rear spoiler, and Z28 stripes...why mess up this car's clean lines and simplicity?  I do like the original wheels and dog-dish caps.  Not many of these left!
