1969 Camaro Named Best Chevy of All Time

Nearly 125,000 Chevrolet fans have spoken, naming the1969 Camaro the “Best Chevy of All Time.”

As part of Chevrolet’s Centennial celebration, fans were asked to vote for their favorite vehicle from Chevrolet’s 100-year history. During the four-round, elimination bracket, the 1969 Camaro garnered 25,058 of the 124,368 votes cast, edging out the 1970 Chevelle SS in the final round.

Tom Peters, Chevrolet Design director, believes the ’69 Camaro is not only one of the best vehicles in Chevrolet’s history but one of the best vehicles ever. He is a little biased, however, having owned the same 1969 Camaro for nearly 20 years.
“I can vividly remember seeing one for the first time as a kid,” Peters said. “The intent of the Camaro was instantly understood, even to a 14-year old like me, because it possessed a very powerful personality and an elegant, simple design. The Camaro was so cool because it offered this great style, high performance, and yet was attainable for someone just getting out of school.
“Today, the ’69 Camaro has become one of the best examples of timeless design in the industry,” Peters said. “Like the very best designs, the Camaro is much more than just a machine because it evokes powerful emotions in people of all ages. That’s why we looked to the ’69 for inspiration when designing the fifth-generation Camaro, and why the ’69 Camaro is an example of the timeless vehicles Chevrolet will strive to deliver for the next 100 years.”

I recently purchased a 1969 RS Z/28 (4C build date) with a later dated (August 23 1969) M20 that I plan to remove. Would love to reunite this transmission with the original car!

PS - this M20 was originally discovered in May, 2006 with no success in reuniting it with the original car. It will be removed from the car shortly.

Recently there was a '69 Camaro listed on eBay which was supposedly imported from Germany(sorry I don't have the particlars of the listing). The listing included a close-up picture of the trim tag which varied from non-export use cars in that it was missing the script certifying that vehicle conforms to all federal motor vehicle safely standards. The trim tag was blank in this area.This non standard trim tag detail may be a bit obvious however worth checking out.

General Discussion / Re: Reproduction 1969 Camaro Coupe Shells

Dynacorn, the manufacturer had a display at Barrett-Jackson which generated a lot of attention. Their reps were talking it up about the coupe however the company line is that the tooling is done and they are awaiting GM licensing approval which they don't have a time-line on but expect will received in mid to late 2006. I took a close look at the convertible shell they had on display and was quite impressed, the detailing is good and yes it does include the rear frame rails. As a general statement all the welded on parts are included and anything that is bolted on is not.
