I could use some help on the pricing of this 69 Camaro SS. I'd like to see what everyone in the CRG Forum thinks a value should be for this project. Thanks in advance for your opinions and thoughts. Here's the link to the Camaro:

Just to let everyone know, I will be selling this Camaro. I have two projects in the shop now. If it doesn't sell then it'll be next in line.

Thanks for the help, all!

Educate me on the fuel lines? I did take a picture of the driver side front frame rail, because someone told me those drilled holes were signs that only a SS would have. I thought that had something to do with fuel lines. Please explain in detail what you are referring to or give me a site to read about it.

No problem. It's better to have knowledge and history than to be blindsided later. I pretty much agree that it's a x55. Your  points about the springs and the heads are what's leaning me to an x55, but I did get 2 other sets of heads and another intake with the camaro. One seat of heads were the 041's, one set was 1980's heads, and the other set are 186's z heads. The other intake is a 3932472 z intake. So, it's the z heads, z intake, and yes the m21 that are completely throwing me off. That x7 on the bulk head threw me a pretty big curve too. The x77 cowl tag and dz code also threw me for a loop, but it looks like most believe they aren't authentic. I'll see what the family I bought the car off of tells me this week when I see them. I feel like Columbo! Thanks for the compliment on my knowledge. I do use the CRG site for information, specs, and numbers, but never used the CRG forum. Now I see how the forum can be a valuable tool.
Thanks again,

Hello everyone,

I'm the new owner of this '69 Camaro being discussed. So, here's the whole story from when I bought it a couple of months ago to right now. I bought the car and it came with a ton of parts (intakes, several sets of heads, extra 80's block, several cranks, water pumps, starters, rears, etc...). I saw the x55 cowl tag, period correct 4 bolt main block, matching number muncie trans, dual exhaust hanger holes on driver side, 12 bolt in it, Hugger orange factory over sprays, and believed it to be a true Hugger Orange 350 4 speed SS.

I put it up for sale on eBay, and advertised it as a '69 x55. Someone made an offer, and I accepted it. We started communication, and set a day for pick up. No money was exchanged. I started to organize some of the parts for pick up, and noticed that the engine had a serial number on it once I really cleaned and scraped off the engine pad. That's when I also saw the DZ code. I then went to reinspect the vin, and cowl tag. I took off the cowl a noticed that the hidden vin matched, but the cowl tag didn't seem to be fastened correctly. I informed the buyer of that, and asked to terminate the sale because I didn't feel comfortable selling this car as a true x55. I have a 100 % positive feedback, & don't want to risk my reputation or misrepresent something to a buyer. After that I went thru the parts: I've found z heads, z intake, x77 tag, and the x7 on the rear seat bulk head. I took out the seats to search for a build sheet and that's when I noticed the bulk head, and looked up its meaning online. That's throwing me for a loop.

Then Danny contacted me and accused me of having some big balls for advertising this car in 2008 as a z28 and now as a SS. Once he explained the 2008 listing and I informed him of my recent purchase we had an understanding that I wasn't trying to misrepresent this '69. We then opened communication for him to help me try and decipher what I had. I sent photos and opened up a conversation. I didn't realize he was posting our conversation until I stumbled onto this thread today, while I was looking for this 2008 ad he mentioned. It doesn't bother me that he made this a public discussion because I'm a pretty forthright person, but he could of informed me so that you people could have heard my questions directly from me. Either way, I appreciate his help and those of you who we're answering my questions thru him.

I checked the hidden spots (cowl & heater box) Danny mentioned. I also re inspected the vin tag, and feel comfortable that I have a legit matching vin tag, cowl hidden vin, heater hidden vin, and title.

I'm scheduled to meet with the family who sold me the Camaro and parts later this week. I don't think they'll be able to clarify anything for me, unless the give me a Protecto plate and original dealership bill of sale LOL!  Not sure if it's a x55 or x77, but at this point I know it's a 69 Hugger Orange V8 4 speed with a 12 bolt posi. How can I not put a 1st Gen Camaro like that back on the road!

Sorry for the extremely long post, but I just wanted to get the full story out there. Thank you to Danny and those of you who have provided me information on my quest. If anyone has any other information or knowledge to help, please contact me.

Thank you,
