What's up with the spoiler? It's hanging over the edge of the trunk lid.

What about this tag. It looks funny or has it just been mistreated? What's going on with the "4L" build date?

The tag appears to have been 'sandblasted', or otherwise gotten too hot somehow.   Sandblasted tags 'warp like that one appears to be...

O.M.G!  Shocked I want that car!!  Cool
But some details, other then mentioned above, looks strange to me:

- What´s with the cowl hood air cleaner seal, doesn´t look ok?
- Should it really be a weather strip in the front of the radiator? Is it a BB-thing or what?

Are you talking about weather strip across the top of the core support?  If so all '69 air conditioned cars got it to help seal the front end and  force air thru the radiator for cooling.

Thats a gorgeous car but I noticed a few things that are not correct... the blue GM sticker on the drivers door was never there in 1969. The air cleaner rubber cowl seal is on 'upside down'. It needs to be flipped inside out. There is no solenoid on the carb. that kicks the idle up when the a/c is turned on. Thats all I noticed but easily corrected things. Wish I had won the lottery lately Smiley

The 'warped' trim tag was the *worst* thing I noticed about the car; as click said, the other issues are easily corrected.. Smiley ..   I don't know how one would 'correct' the trim tag deformation without replacing it with a repro, which would raise questions about everything else on the car!

I was also curious about the 04L body date code....   what' with the 'L'??

Is it an optical illusion or is my eyes going that bad? It looks like it's hanging over the edge.

The spoiler does look weird, maybe its just the image, but it looks to tall.  also the stripes on the rear are off, thats what happens when you don't make the right strip wider than the left, the Camaro emblem is hanging off the edge of the stripe.  Pinstripes are to short, should go further back on the door, and on the rear quarter.  Its a nice looking car, made about 10 hours after my Z11.

It will be even more crowded under the hood if they install the missing smog.

Is it possible its an 'E' as it looks like part of the top and center legs are there?

Nope its an L, nobody knows why, but it exists on some cars built during the last week of April AND the first week of May 1969.  My PC has it.
