like i said the owner did not allow pics and did not want to show pop .checked serial# against build date and did not line up at all- motor was a restamp, after that he asked me to leave

no it did not orginate in the east-it is in the east now--as most things end  the pop was fake-even the trim tag was replaced- to the eye it looked real- but the finial deal is, parts were acumulated for years to try to fool- guess he thought someone would purchase it with out checking it out- my balloon has burst- sorry

i have been in the corvette world for 38 years and have had bloomington cars,L-88 ,etc ---i can match her up with the pop ok and get it bought(i hope-what ever the price is) . thanks for the advice to have jerry look at it before i even touch it- thats great advice an ad i thank you for that- after doing more research(not knowing how scarce this one is when i heard about it)- sounds like this i one of the scarced 69 camaros they produced-probably was not used at Indy but it was made in march  69   thanks to all and still good to hear more advice  thanks

owner will not let me take any pics- it is a running,driveing car- runs great, has small rust drivers floor pan where you feet would go, paint is a 7, top is very good, in reality a really good clean up and buff and it would be about an 7-8, really looks good.  he is a little strange to deal with, its for sure for sale but cant get firm price yet. looks to around 40. i would guess what is not orginial could be taken care of for less than 2000.  just like a coment on the 40 grand. i think that would be a steal and with more thinking it might be better to replace wrong componets and clean up and maybe leave the car alone and look for survivor status.

another question about this car-if 311 L/89's were produced how many could have been pace cars(its a Z-11) my guess would be 10 or less?
8  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / L-89 pace car on: September 26, 2007, 11:59:12 PM
found a 396/375 alum head pace car (in a barn)  38000 miles with docs( POP) dont know if the build sheet is there. car is all together and runs. what is the top end on these if restored correctly? It is a very interesting find to say the least. car is in good condtion-looks as it should- just a little worn with some rust.  carb is wrong and some very small stuff. (have 2 SS and a Z now)  just want some info on pricing

rotor thickness's (if i remember right) were laid down by the Fed Gov't for repair shops to use for a standard for safety-thin rotors dont take the heat as well and do provide a safety issue and shop owners(like i used to be-retired) went by these standards(for legal reasons-if you know what i mean)

i have just (in a barn)found a L79 pace car- could anyone tell me how many were made-i am guessing very few- would like to know to judge price- looks like 38000 miles with paper work and needs restored  thanks

guess i need to check my car-(pre x code-marked X 1) rs- ss350 air cond- it has a 10 bolt pos- i just assumed it had been swaped out- especially even 30 years ago it was a lot harder to find  a 12 bolt pos and if you did it was more money-- 12 bolt from a junk yard( if i can remember) seemed to run 250- 500 and at the time a 10 bolt could be bought for as little as a 100-150- and most yards did not even look if it was pos track
13  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: factory options on: January 15, 2007, 09:27:48 PM
not a factory option- but on some of my orginial rubber moldings had a canda sticker on them  made in canda- is this normal  --i have a early 69rs-ss350(no x code- but has a chalk mark 


































this wasnt a factory option(but i heard Canada)  i have some orginial rubber moldings with a round sticker which has a maple leaf with made in canada on it--is this normal -i really dont know--69rs-ss350 and early car(no X code- but X 1 chalk markings)





14  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 L48 (SS350) - 2 or 4 bolt mains? on: January 15, 2007, 09:10:07 PM
