Ad states "Also want to add that this is one of those rare Camaros in 69 that vin was slightly off from tag as far as Camaros were concerned because they had problems with the following year production, just adds a little more history behind this gem."

Sure. 02D tag; VIN is N620236. More than "slightly off."

Has 02B body tag; VIN tag N670055. Both tags have been removed. One or both are not original to the car.

This ebay ad prominently mentions documents and features several photos of them. The alleged ‘original’ documents have several inconsistencies with genuine original 1969 Camaro documentation.

Exception Control Letters [ECL] are the two-character alpha codes listed after the option; A01 is tinted glass, AA is the ECL for the specific build. ECLs are application-specific; there are at least 22 for Z22. 5 of the ECLs on the documents for this car are inconsistent with others in the database. In addition there are two spelling errors and an error in the listing of the options.

The ad states: “The window sticker and shipper sheet reflect…and the D80 rear [?] spoiler option” however air spoiler equipment is not listed on the paperwork, such as it is. The car has C08 Vinyl Roof Cover and Z21 Style Trim Group, also not listed on the purported original documents. The ad claims a stereo radio but the documents list the U69 monaural am/fm.

There are several incorrect or missing components evident in the photos: headers, no AIR system, master cylinder, trunk mat, stripe color, ducted hood.

The ad boasts “Send your inspector today!” I second that motion.

General Discussion / Black & Gold '69 ZL-1 Camaro show car

Went to Barrett-Jackson; awesome as usual. We were there early Friday morning and chatted up the Chevy Engineers in the 2012 COPO Camaro booth. I brought up the '69 show car and they emphatically stated Chevy still owns it. I was under the impression they had used the engine for the '70 ZL-1 show car but he said it was intact. In storage; no plans for it they are aware of.

That's all they knew.

Over 20 years ago a friend stored a Garnet red L78 car at my house, eventually selling it there. I have discovered the original vinyl bag with owners manual and warranty folder with protect-o-plate.

The VIN was 124379N655xxx. It was sold in the early 80s from an ad in Old Cars and may be in Michigan.

If this sounds familiar, get in touch.
