166  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / 1969 SS hood on: March 11, 2008, 11:56:34 PM
Well, after 9 months of educating and searching and of course with the forums help and wisdom ,I purchased a 1969 SS numbers matching butternut yellow......yes, I said butternut..... convertible X55 code camaro today. As time goes on I'll post some pics but in the meantime I will have upcoming questions starting with this......The SS louvered hood have engineered diecut holes cut out of the hood centered directly underneath each squared louver including through the hood supports. It's tooled that way, it wasn't cut out by hand. I'm under the impression that these louvers were strictly ornamental and the hood was solid underneath them. I'm still learning and would appreciate some input on this. I know the aftermarket hoods are not diecut out this way. Were all original SS hoods diecut? Let me know, Thanks!

 Don't need any pictures. This car was totally misrepresented. When selling an auto or anything for that matter you should know what you are selling to be true and not just what you have been told, especially if you will prosper from that sell. There should be some kind of penalty for this that can stick like glue to the perpetrator. Good people spend time and money running down lies and deceptions while dealers hide under legal mumbo jumbo. I know this is probably more common than not, thank GOD for these sights and forums. These are great looking and performing automobiles, Don't belittle there legacy. Integrity is worth more way after you spend your last buck.

That's a great idea, the more info the better. I don't really want to rush into buying the unknown when I can at least get an educated guess. I'm sure there will still be plenty of surprises. Thanks.

Hey, thanks for the response. I've already read that info and I was hoping for another clue. I know what to look for as far as the fuel lines and the front disk brakes. It is a 3 speed auto, not a powerglide. I'm going to view it tomorrow, so any more clues you could give me would be appreciated.

Hi guys, Can somebody tell me if any 69 SS camaros came with a 10 bolt rear end. I'm looking to purchase a convertible and this seller says it's a true SS. Everything I've ever read or owned says 12 bolt only in a 350 SS. How about some help on this? Thanks!

My thoughts exactly. Enough said. Thanks!

Thanks for checking in. I just looked at a pace car with a 140 speedo and a 8 grand tach, it also had the heavy duty radiator and the 1" sway bar. Go figure?! Owner swears he has a Camaro book stating this is correct. You tell me, stay away from it? Can't wait to hear your opinions.

I am looking at a 69 Pace car convertible currently offered for sale.  The 350 engine is not original, however I noticed the speedometer goes to 140 mph and the tach goes to 8000 rpm.  I would like to know if this was an original option or was it replaced at one time.  (I thought this particular tach and speedo only came on double copos).

Also, did ALL '69 indy pace cars come equipped only with a power top or did some come with manual tops?

Finally, which is more valuable:  a '69 pace car w/matching 350 engine and rear end but not tranny (changed from auto to 4-speed) OR a '69 pace car without matching 350 engine but with matching tranny and rear end?  Both seem to have pretty similar options, paint and interior quality.

Thanks a lot!
