could we see pictures, history, mileage..etc

I bought the car from a dealer in Florida but the car was sold new in Midwest City, OK to Tom & Donna B. from Choctaw, OK. It was then sold to another gentleman Patrick O. also from Choctaw, who owned it for a few years. He told me he drove it to go pick up a new truck and the dealer bought the car from him. At that point it was auctioned off between dealers for a few years before I bought it. I believe I am the 3rd real owner of the car. I bought it with just over 80xxx miles on it and it now has 87xxx on it. I was told the it has only had one repaint done in 1986 by the original owner. I ran a title search on the car years ago and that was how i was able to track down the pervious owners on the car. It shows title history back to 12/1969

here are a couple pics I have on my computer..

Hey Nick,

surprised that the 69Z is on the chopping block, with all the nice cars you own.

1) Depends on what the small things are there that need fixing.  Approx how much are you going to ask or want for it?

Hi Austin,

Yeah I have been considering it for a few years now. The car just sits & usually in the way. lol... I renewed the tag on it earlier this year for the first time in 5 years and only drove it a few times before dropping the insurance& parking it again.  I have always enjoyed my 68's more and you just cant drive them all. lol..

The small things I was referring to are, the oil pan has a leak, it uses a quart of oil every couple of hundred miles, I'm assuming it's the guides. there is a small tear in the driver side seat, & a small rust spot in the driver side door. The rest of the car is very solid & shows well.

I dont really know what it's worth, when you look the prices are all over the place.

Thinking about trying to down size my hoard a bit & maybe let go of my 69 Z/28. I was hoping for some advice on how to go about actually selling the car in this day & age? Where would you list it? would you try and fix a few small things first or just sell as is etc.. I think I've owned it 18 or 19 years now & only put about 7000 miles on it in that time.  It's far from perfect, but is still a nice solid  # 3 car. Thankfully, I don't need to sell it, I'm just looking for some info from others that have been down this road.
Any & all advice would be appreciated, Thank you.

Here's what my original stickers look like under my trunklid
Gary you're fortunate that your car still retains the plastic cap on the left hand shock thread - originals seem to be made of unobtanium!

I found one of the shock plastic caps when I cut the left side quarter panel off my new 68 Camaro project last week. It was laying down between the quarter & the trunk drop off.  :)

Damn.. I think I have 2 of those laying on the ground outside my garage, @ 700 bucks a pop maybe I better go dig them up. lol...

Looks like a neat little car. I would love to bring that home if it weren't so far away.

Very cool sir!!

Bought my first car a 68 SSRS 396 in February 1980.  It had just been wrecked right before I bought it & unfortunately I was hit pretty bad in it twice, once in 1981 and again in 1984.  We patched it back together each time and I drove it / raced the car all the way up to 2006 when I hurt it out at the drag strip. I let it sit until September of 2009 & then started on a "1 year" restoration that took me 5 years to complete. lol.. I have been driving it again since the end of January 2015. I did everything except the machine work on my block & heads here at home in the garage.  The car is not perfect, but I will say even after 37 years owning it, it still puts that same big @ss smile on my face just like it did as a kid driving it..

My cure is buying another Camaro or a ton of parts for a Camaro, take two aspirin, go to bed.

lol... My thoughts exactly, I'm up too six at the moment and still on the hunt for the next one.  :)

Yes you can get the side cover off with the trans in the car. I swapped a shift fork on my 69 Z several years back with the trans still in the car. It's tight but doable..

Yep; Of course I'm a Chevy guy.. :)   You didn't know that?   I was planning to restore the Mustang once I finished all my Chevys..  but I keep buying Chevys..   ???

The Mustang is hemmed in between a '55 BelAir and a '55 front clip.. :)

Stang is a one owner (my wife) with original title totally stock except for 500 cfm Holley 2 bbl (on Windsor 351 engine).. shaker hood, off-white perforated seats, fold down rear seat, rear spoiler, hood lockdowns, automatic, rimblow steering wheel...  Oh..  and 'two stage' dust...  :)      Wanna buy it?  :)

Congrats!!  What a nice little 70, I would sure love to add that to my collection..  Very nice sir!!

Glad to you back on the CRG Nick, and hope to see more updates of your awesome (driver) Camaros.

Thank you sir. Believe it or not I finally dug the 69 Z back back out after a 6 year slumber. I've put put 450 miles on it in since the first of the month. I think I spent too many years worrying about all the what if's?? Now I'm to the point of screw it.. I'm going to enjoy these cars before I'm too old or  :P
