I'm really uneducated on the Ajax mirrors. Is the C for March? Kind of curious why the mirror was used instead of the DMI. Possibly supply of DMI was out?, but why would there be a supply of DATED Ajax mirrors on hand for back up? Interesting topic.

Yeah....I figured out that part a long time ago, that's a no brainer...it's the black cable attached to the base that needs replacing/repairing. Is it possible to remove this or does the hole thing have to go into the trash for a new one?

Gary, The part that I sent you needs the end replaced on the cable that plugs into the radio.  If you can find out the proper length for a '69 Camaro antenna cable (from front fender antenna), you could cut off the cable that is on the antenna, and re-install the plug in connector (for the radio end).  I don't think that would be a big deal for someone familiar with making up electrical cables, although antenna cables require a little more skill/knowledge.  Probably any person with electrical technician experience could do it well.

I might be able to get this guy where my wife works to check it out. He does most all the electronics work there, if he can't he'll probably know someone who does. So the R & R of that cable is impossible then from what I'm getting.

Interesting on the top. Was there halo trim if the car had the two tone paint or the trim that is showing on Fahads car now? Maybe a dealer installed vinyl top at one time? Wouldn't the pins under the trim indicate anything?

Really having a ball reading and looking at all the memorabilia. Never ever had an opportunity to go to anything like this type racing and can't even remember if it was ever televised, it must have been a ball. Question, were all the Camaros true Z28's or just Camaro's in general?

.....I got the item today and it looks better than I hoped it would and the patina is perfect. Now, I just have to figure out how to replace the cable on it so it will work. 

The cable detaches very easily at the mast mounting... OR if you are 'good', you might be able to splice on a new end for the radio plug in.  Smiley

Just tugged on it and doesn't seem it will come out very easy, so I'm guessing it is a firm fit. If I can replace the connection end I'll give it a shot IF I can find some info on how. Gonna google to see if I can fine something.

Just curious Fahad, how is the metal holding up on the car? Is there much rust corrosion? From your pic the body looks very decent, but the vinyl top really looks dried out.  

Welcome to the site. There is some really good info to read here and many people that can help if you have questions.

Thank you 69Z28

There some corrosion and it will be fixed.


Your English is fairly good and it is easy to understand what your writing. We can fine tune that for you once you get to posting more.  Can't wait to see more on your car. Looks to be an SS... big block or small block? Your avatar shows an RS but your pic shows a standard rear panel. I really like the color. I am partial to dark blue myself.


Just saw the trim tag and it is a -- tag. Interesting what color your going to go with. Hugger orange??

Yeah, getting up off the floor is a big problem for me once I get down under a car. If my son is around, which is not much, he just pulls me out by my feet. During the day I am totally alone, no one to help do anything, so working on my car has slowed down...a lot.

The only reason he sold you that was I told him you were going to paint your car Orange... Cheesy

I had a Carousel Red 69 GTO Judge for a while in the 90's. Same as H.O. and I just had enough of that color. I think 'Cortez Silver' is way better than any other color....  Roll Eyes

That's a little pricey. I have one that has been in my inventory since I bought my first camaro in 1975. Send me a PM, I would sell mine for half of that.

That, my friends, is a true CRGer! Very kind gesture Buddy. I hope he takes you up on this. It is not even my car and I am excited for 69 SS X55. I hope we all can help each other get our cars finished. Thanks.

Here you go guys...


I want to add a "BIG THANKS" to GaryW, "69Z28-RS" for giving me the opportunity to purchase an item I had previously inquired about here but couldn't buy because of an illness that I was going thru at that time. This restores my faith in that there are people out there that will go out of the way to help others. Thanks Gary...I got the item today and it looks better than I hoped it would and the patina is perfect. Now, I just have to figure out how to replace the cable on it so it will work.

That is too funny, but you wouldn't find me in a nursing home, at least my kids 'SAY' they wouldn't put me there, but who knows. Now...on the hand, my wife might. She's 10 years younger then me and has a lot more life in her yet to be worried about me. I'm 60 and as another member told me recently, the wheels are starting to come off.
58  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Is this tag real or fake? on: March 13, 2014, 01:54:34 PM
I don't think the wood grain was that dark on the steering wheel and the dash was it? How about the fan shroud, maybe 68? Wasn't there a difference between the 68 and 69's?
59  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Is this tag real or fake? on: March 13, 2014, 10:29:12 AM
Was looking at that last night, I believe the tag is fake too.
