Well even with the upgrades on spoilers and hood, it definitely presents nice. I wonder how close he was to selling it the first time.

I was thinking possibly Chevelle as well.

Yes, he says the lady that had them had another roll that she had consigned to a antique mall , but they never sold them. So here ya go, looks like they might be better condition.

I have seen guys "ask" crazy money for them. I do not know the age, but it appears as the older style sticker ( there is a couple of newer versions that are easy to spot). I sold a NOS rear quarter a couple of years ago for $1500, I saw guys asking $3-5k but never saw them sell, like another CRG member here that asks a ton of money. Eventually the price may get there but I usually follow the ones that actually sell for a better barometer of what the actual going price is. I still see guys parting out 69 camaros or selling rolling bodies for a couple of grand that have good fenders and enough parts to more than recoup what you have into it.

Hey Jon how come your car wasn't competing at that race? To far to go?
Interesting the camaros didn't run bumpers, and most of the Mustangs didn't but the Cougars who were pretty dominant ran front and rear bumpers.
Also it wouldn't have been easier for that Z/28 to swap out a gas tank than locate plastic balls to put in there? they would have had to pull the tank to get the plastic balls out anyways right?

A quick check shows at $62K the reserve was not met, so perhaps the seller and high bidder couldn't agree on a price, or buyer wasn't all that into it with 26 feedback?

Hey Jon,

Question I noticed your in your vintage pics your car has the spoiler and the gold hurst car did not. When did this option become available? if it was beneficial it seems like both cars would have run it right?

Sauron I agree some goodmark works some is junk. (by the way it is just a 64 C/10 shorted fleet side, not panel)  Smiley My point is I have seen NOS panels, original panels, and repro, and The rule of thumb still holds true for Camaro IMO, NOS panels if they came early off the machine may work, others that may have come off later, may be off farther than a repro, and may need some work to fit right.   Your right James the "B" comment went right over my head.  Cheesy thanks for the "save" I was asleep at the wheel on that one,  but I get it now.  Wink
My general point is  I haven't seen any unrestored (american) cars with body gaps and spacing of todays show cars.

As far as money being tight, it just sounds like you have enough leeway to acquire the different manufactured pieces and make the best decision, and then possibly use those items left over on one of your other cars, or sell to recoup the money, and spend on something else more worth while for the car.

I think by the way you have asked your question you have your eye on the right items, and are preparing yourself to tackle those small trifles ahead of time so your build goes as smooth as possible.

good post: that article "talk about sand bagging-Ask Mark" Jerry Titus makes the remark at the end of the article regarding a super special light model and says "Like, how many Z-28's have you seen on the street, for example?" and in the years that followed Chevrolet capitalized on the racing prowess of the Z-28/Penske racing and marketed towards that crowd. But thank goodness for Mark Donahue and the Penske team or who knows if the moniker would even still be around today let alone the Camaro model itself.

"Stick to comparing Camaro sheetmental parts and dismiss all other makes and models; what applies to those has little to do with these. Your bodyshop should know all this. If they do not start looking for another one."

While I agree you want to go to a body shop that likes consistent panel fitment, I don't see a quality shop taking a customers 69 Camaro and saying "well this is a 69 Camaro we have to really make the car fit together good now", that would be suspect to me. My 69 Camaro hasn't been apart since it left the assembly line, and I can tell you first hand even with all the assembly line parts it is doesn't look as nice as some of the "show" cars I have seen. From the few different makes and models I have, the reproduction Vs. original Vs. NOS is the same across the line for panel fitment. The Camaro isn't exclusive in that category. Now as far as trim and the other odds and ends I am sure there are differences with the different suppliers Vs. what Gm fitted the car with.

Bullitt?  Did your car slip out of the factory without the 'B' stamp on the firewall?  Smiley    J/K

Gary, first I wouldn't have bought it if it had that "B", secondly knowing the original owners preferences, he wouldn't have paid a penny more for anything that didn't make the car go faster. (when I was searching for a 69 Z I did run across a couple with the "B" , out of 4 Garnet Red cars I looked closely at  2 had removed the vinyl top and had repainted the car without it. )

I have one car with a vinyl top, (66 Impala SS). After repairing the rust from moisture being trapped under the top, when I finished the car I did put the vinyl top back on, and for me 1 car with a vinyl top is enough for me... Grin

James, I think as a buyer I would rather see original GM fenders that have had small repairs than reproduction fenders. As far as a full quarter I agree with Gary I would repair the panel with repro metal, but if the damage is extensive enough to warrant the full panel, and you have a GM full quarter , I would replace with the full GM piece. I think even before you posted you have a good head on your shoulders and you will turn out a clean car you can be proud of, both with quality and the time and money you have invested.  Wink
