Oakly -Are those wire wheel covers on the front ?? I wouldn't have thought those would have made the grade back then for a muscle car  Grin
Thats the way it came when I bought it for $750. By 1980, I made it right! Those are M50-14's in the rear on Crager 14x10 wheels. In those days, it was about getting the car as far from stock as you can.

I agree. Nothing better the the ZL-2 option, especially with a 4 speed! And SS with the ZL-2 is a VERY rare option.

Passenger side, pretty normal:



Drivers side, not so normal:



I don't know if the painters gun clogged or he was high (it was 1969)

It is the drivers side and you can just see the front tire there.

Here is Van Nuys 04A, unrestored original paint, yellow numbers on my car were a date code 3-26-69. Notice drips and runs from dip paint on frame. Restored cars should copy this and not be smooth!:

Yes, they can be re-coded if the ignition key fits into the door lock. About $25each.

The movie "Almost Famous", the Cameron Crowe movie (he also did Fast Times at Ridgemont High with Sean Penn wrecking a Camaro). He contacted our Camaro Club to load the Movie with Camaros. I  got paid $185 to drive my sons 68 behind Francis Mcdomonds car all night for the concert scene. A club members blue 69 is seen driving the sister away.

original paint, original stripes:


42  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 1969 Z/28 firewall crayon marks, question? on: September 26, 2013, 08:05:30 PM
Here's an example of crayon bleed-thru on my firewall (all original paint). The "72" for Hugger Orange is seen here. Restored cars look wrong with the crayon on top of the paint, and nobody seems to be able to write as smooth as the factory workers could:

The windows could have been broken at the dealers lot and replaced with glass from the warehouse. Bought a Vette like that once.

I us this

45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: Top of cowl paint color line on: April 14, 2013, 11:03:16 AM
The top of the cowl tag should not have body color overspray on it.  The entire car body was painted body color, and then the firewall was blacked out.  That car has had the body color repsrayed, but not the firewall.  The firewall/body color line looks good other than the fact its body color over black instead of black over body color.

No, Mark, it IS original paint. Not resprayed! You can clearly see the backout is over the orange and varies side to side. My paint is just in really excellent condition:
