How about some pics of your ZL-1 find?

Guys this is not the case at all. This is simply someone buying a car to restore and getting burned. He purchased the car out of Utah as an undocumented L-48 SS early 68 van Nuys. He stripped the body for media blasting, purchased a ton of OEM parts.  Unfortunetly the news came back as not good on the body and that he should consider doing a re-body.  I believe this became financially overwhelming and the fact that he doesn't seem to be to mechanically inclined. There property is also coming up for sale so instead of packing all these parts he would just cut his losses.  
 Very nice couple in Maple Falls WA. Previous long time small business owners in a small community with heavy roots.

Sounds good enough to me. You actually met them in person, so you would have the best say on the matter.

I am more interested in the actual parts that were available, since there wasn't a list per say.

You had the time, and you have the room to store all of them, so sounds like you were the right guy to purchase them.

Were you able to get him to negotiate on the price any?

IMO the thing to keep in mind as far how rare it is now, is how original it has been maintained. The untouched originality is highly sought after and valued these days. I look forward to seeing your pics.. Smiley

Um, that wasn't my suspicion, I think you may mean Kevin W. (from your quote)

Just curious, how did you test it?
36  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: just joined have a 68 coupe and a 69 rs convt on: March 21, 2015, 10:08:58 PM
Yes I would agree that more options were used on the convertibles, than say a base car. So you could bump it up a bit most likely.

Hey Welcome to the CRG!

Sounds like you have 2 nice cars. We encourage to post pictures of each car you have, and motor shots if possible.

Regarding how many RS convertibles were made. I think we can narrow down how many convertibles, and how many 69 Camaro RS cars there was in general. I am not sure GM kept that good of records to say specifically how many convertibles had the RS option.

So there were 243,085 1969 Camaro produced
37,773 1969 Camaros had the RS option, (which is about 15%)
17,573 1969 Camaro convertibles produced

So 15% of 17,573 Convertibles works out to about 2,730 1969 Camaro convertibles with the RS option.

Sold!! Just finished loading everything up! There was WAY more than advertised.

Ok so what else was there? Did you pay the full amount? I am guessing you are into 67's by your handle, what are your plans for the parts?
39  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Tribute to the small block Chev. video on: March 20, 2015, 05:47:12 PM
I saw that video, looks like the picked the greasiest motor they could find. How many guys have shot paint for their motor out of a gun? Any benefits there?

Also (I am assuming you didn't get any original docs with it)

But try prior owner history, see if you can talk to some prior owners, and maybe they might have pictures or know someone else who knows the car.

As far as advice goes, before you start gathering Z parts (which are expensive), I would research as much as you can on how the car may have come originally. If it has the original trans with the vin stamped in it, that would be a good first step. Maybe you get lucky and it ends up being a Canadian car and with that it would prove it originally was a Z.

Find out about the trans, and lets see some pics of it then and now please

Maybe a rough cast E?

I would agree with some of what you are saying Bryon, but it would be hard for me to give away parts that i did not need if I was taking a loss on the totality of the deal. So its not always about the money, when you may have little invested, but some of us need to operate at a positive cash flow to be able to continue to participate in the hobby side of collecting cars/parts. It is easy(no scratch that)- it is easier to explain to my wife the cost involved with the hobby if it pays for itself. Remember gas/oil changes/maintence on these cars cost money as well, so to avoid a continual loss year after year it is ideal to make at least a little bit of money. Getting a good initial deal means not having to ask a "KINGS" ransom when selling, and selling parts for reasonable prices helps the hobby (as a whole) out as well.
I am not independently wealthy and I am not old enough to have a huge pension, or retirement savings account to draw from, so this is only my small perspective with situations similar to these.
I am just attempting to not go broke, while enjoying it for what it is. Grin

How are you looking at it?
Do you mean like re-listing all the parts separately on eBay or back on craigslist? Or bringing it all to a swap meet?
Seems like it would take some personal time to try and get that last 500 or so out of it.
I like finding a good deal like everyone else and having a small amount of my personal time in turning it over to dollars, maybe I am missing something here.

You know what if a guy had only a good shell of a rolling 69 Camaro and needed everything, 3k may be a good deal. It would take the right circumstances I think.
I still think it would be hard to turn a profit for 3k if you didn't need the parts for your own car.
