General Discussion / Re: 69 hood style ?

Hi and welcome the CRG!

Is your question, pertaining to usage on the 69 SS?

All 69 SS Camaros would have came stock with the SS (velocity stack) hood. A purchaser could have opted for the ZL-2 hood for an additional cost. Most SS cars came with the SS hood though.

The original owner of my red Z had the distributor recurved about every 3 months or so , judging by receipts .
Perhaps it was loose or had some issues?

Or a shop swapped in another one they had , and thought no big deal...

To bad this car will likely never be 52 Garnet red again.

*as a interesting side note: it looks like it has an original heater hose bracket that mounted to the alternator.

Well 68 for a 69 could be considered even , depending on condition, but I would say you did well with the Monza for a 70 Z. The 70 Z/28 have shown to have a strong market as of late.

My friend traded his 67 Z/28, for a 68 road runner, (spring 1970)One of his biggest regrets. Must be other guys out there that traded cars back in the day

Thanks for the info, and the link.

So I was searching around the internet for some Stewart Warner info and ran across this story on the 69 BB COPO.

Great story, and funny to read about a 3 way trade that was pulled off.

Well put x33 :) agree
Car is pretty, configuration probably low 11, high 10 sec...not scary fast, but enough to suck your gut in a bit, if never rolled that quick,,,fun!

Seems we had this conversation a few years ago. I always figured you can always take them back: Jerry M's record setting 67 Z. If you desire.

Around 16 years mine rolled around with a 406 backed by a 350 full manual trans.Never bothered to take the fender badges off.

I do get however when people get put off by bait words in ads, me, I really don't care that much.

Great site, always helpful, lets not inadvertently insult anybody.
So I am curious: Jano (or any other member) for this car is the mention of it being an original Z/28 fall under "click bait" or do you think  that it significantly adds to the story fo this car. In other words what did you perceive the seller mentioning it for?

thanks :)

Totally agree, there are definitely some historic race cars that were raced heavy and put away wet. These cars really take a devoted fan, and deep pockets to bring back. I guess if the ad read race as is, or we have all the original components to restore, or date correct components to restore it may hold more weight to really underscore that it was an original Z.
If I saw it at a show I think I would be interested in its 1/4 mile race history, than its brief life as a Z/28 though.

Do you guys feel better now? I realize it wasn't the cars owner that was the OP but my God is it any wonder so many people are just lurkers on car websites and don't want to post anything?
That why I come here, to feel good.... ;D

The seller of that car is trying to talk it up, and hit all the highlights. Can't blame him for that, but come on.

If the car was built as some BB 1/4 mile rocket, than talk that angle of it up. IMO the case for it being an original Z, I think just falls on deaf ears.

Apologize if I sounded to negative, but I was unimpressed with the description.
BUT:
(lurkers are going to lurk, posters are going to post, moderators are going to ...
have egos....hahahha)

BUT its a true X33 car!, "not a clone"

Who cares now? The days of that car representing a Z/28 are long gone.

I have seen clones that I would rather own

I talked to him a while back regarding some camaro parts. Let me see if I can dig him and get some info.
I can't say if its legit, since its just another guys camaro blather to me until docs or verification or other facts back it up.

Sounded like a special order for sure. I also thought who would go through the trouble of restoring a 6 cylinder to factor specs with a JL8 package.

I was un-aware that almost all JL8 packages went to Z/28. I know of a guy that is restoring a 69 Camaro original 6 cylinder JL8 car that he says he purchased from the original owner. (Said the original owner used it for towing or something. ) He told me he is restoring it to stock specs. Was this possible?

Can you please post a pic of the stickers. I saw some on my White 69 doors not sure if it is just manufacturing sticker, or the glass adjustment. thanks
