I thought it was too good to be true. Oh well, back to the country in search of that rare barn find.

Has anyone ever gone this route to purchase a car?
Lots of Camaros here with what appears to be great prices.

It looks as if gm_restoration_parts has pulled all his items off eBay.

I just finished reading an interesting and lengthy thread over at nastyz28. http://www.nastyz28.com/forum/showthread.php?t=107384 He is accused of selling repop pieces as NOS.

Does anyone here have any experience dealing with the eBay buyer/seller: gm_restoration_parts?
I thought he appeared good according to his feedback record but after reading the above thread I'm not so sure anymore.

Looks like it won't be shown in my area. Sad
Heaven forbid it bumps 'The Lawrence Welk Show'. Roll Eyes

My PBS listing shows 'Restoration Stories' scheduled for 10-10 at 9:30 AM eastern time, is this it?

Thanks for explaining this curious oddity and pointing me to the COPO article, somehow I missed that.

With the absence of engine size on the fender along with the non-blacked-out tailpan, the ZL-1 must have been quite the "mystery car" before hearing it running. This was one major "sleeper"!!!

Lots of info here: http://www.camaros.org/coolingsystems.shtml#usage

OL code appears to be a '67/'68 BB manual radiator.

It is correct for a COPO. Has to do with the fact the COPO order started with a SS then pulled off the SS emblems.

I'm confused, if a COPO order started with an SS then pulled off the SS emblems, why is it badged with RS on the grill? I thought all SS cars with the RS treatments were always badged SS front and back along with the fenders. Is this a one-of-a-kind treatment reserved for the ZL-1 or could other SS cars come factory badged RS? So this car has the SS holes filled in on the fender?

I was referred to this thread after posting the 'DX1 stripe question' in Originality to view the rare, one-of-a-kind ZL-1 wearing this stripe. I didn't notice this at first but since it is an RS and not an SS badged car shouldn't it have 'rallysport' on the fender, not 'Camaro'? Is this the factory original way of badging a ZL-1?

Thanks for clearing that up everyone. Mistakes seem to be the norm in this thread; I mistakenly typed D91 instead of D90 stripe. Embarrassed

That sure is one sweet and rare ZL1. Cool

I gotta find a copy of that book! So it was possible to order this stripe on an SS or COPO? Do you remember what thread Kurt posted the photo to? A search for DX1 stripe only shows this thread. I sure would like to see pics of a DX1 on an SS and cowl hood.

Thanks Ed, I didn't think it was available but was told over at TC that it was possible to delete the D91 stripe on an SS and order the DX1. The poster stated that he'd seen one in a Camaro Recognition Guide, a big block RS/SS car - hugger orange with black DX1 stripes.

44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / DX1 stripe question on: September 11, 2009, 11:06:58 AM
Were there any restrictions as to the use of this stripe with the hoods available in 1969? I'm trying to determine if the DX1 option could be ordered with the BB stack or ducted air hoods. I've never seen it applied on true survivor cars unless it had the standard flat hood. I don't see a problem with the ducted hood but wonder if the stack location would prohibit its use with the BB hood.

There is a couple of '67 ads at the same site (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv3zwhy6h7k) on the right side of the page, no other '69's that I can see.
