General Discussion / Re: Two questions of 69 Camaro options

Sorry I meant to say L89. which there were a few of those (311). But how well known was that option in relation to the others?

Kelley I looked back at both tags, I don't see evidence of a Phillips screw driver. Can you post where you are seeing this.

I saw a 69 unrestored car at the "survivor show" in Bloomington a few years ago claiming to be a rare L88 SS Camaro. Are you saying this was not an available special option, and he could have only gotten those over the counter for a 69 Camaro?

Well I was just proposing a worst case scenario, if you will, of what could also happen. I am not trying to legitimize a 67 with 2 round rivets, but I would take pity if there is a guy out there with one. That would be an uphill battle if taken to task.

Good thread, good pics to back it up, about some little known info .

It was my understanding that the COPO program was a big secret (not widely known), and besides having the knowledge you had to know the right dealer to get an order through. I also thought this was the case for the ZL-1, and the L88 option.

So if I understand right, you are saying so many rivets were used that when the vendor made them, some got pressed wrong still made it in the bin and were used because the line was fast enough, where workers just grabbed them and used all the rivets? Sorry if I did not follow your theory.

separate question:
If you have these abnormalities, where most vin tags had both flower style rivets but every so often had a round rivet. Is it possible there I a car(or cars) out there with 2 round rivets?

This is a UOIT by Fisher. I found one of those in  my 67 LOS coupe and from what I was told, it is rare to find these.
IMO, this is just as valuable as a broadcast sheet found on top of a tank, though not as detailed. But it does verify the trim tag codes.
  One thing I want to point out is the VIN is a month past mine and the top rivet on the door tag shown looks almost round, which one on my coupe is like. I have had the usual 'doubting Thomas' experts say it was changed because it didn't have a well defined star pattern to it. My reply is I tell them they should be embarrassed to make such a bold statement like that. Then again, these were some of the same 'experts' that told me "strange....I have never seen an SS 396 without factory gauges before".

I would suggest just saving pictures and information on cars similar to yours. The "doubting Thomas" type of guys usually are know it alls, and have little to no clue about discrepancies (variance) . I have had the same experience but with my rear end stamp, even to the point where a moderator questioned my original paperwork, and authenticity of my car.  I have since located some examples similar to mine in the same time frame, or in one example the same shift, that my rear end was stamped. So no worries on my end, I know what I have, and that guy will stay clueless, like the guy you ran into.

I like the 67, but he doesn't provide much detail if the car runs or not. I a guessing it was a saginaw trans, that someone has upgraded to a hurst linkage. What is the large box on the drivers side fender well? (something RS headlight related?)

It was just my wasted time. Frickin 68 guys geez 😂
If you can't remember what you're car was worth 5 years ago, or that you even asked what it was worth, then I guess this is a big reminder thread.
Although Jano thought it was worth around 50k then, so I think a little less now. So maybe this thread helped you get a better 2019 price. I still think 40-45k
Exactly when are you putting it up for sale?

Dutch why did you start a new topic about the value of your car? The old thread Darrel posted is the exact same thing we have here?
(If I would have seen that I wouldn't have wasted my time resizing the pics and posting. ) >:(
sorry guys
