Darrell,

Last time I saw this car, it was being driven on the square by the former owner. A ding or 2, but nothing this dramatic. Did she survive the impact ? If she did, she must have been as tough as the car -

Regards,
Steve

Bullitt,
thanks but my father was the reason it was saved.  Without him and his reputation around this area the car would have sat in that concrete tomb until who knows when.  I was just the helper at that stage working off my debt for parts and paint. 



Steve,
Yes is was still living when we got her (the car).  She had pulled out in front of someone and they t-boned her.  Hit so hard it broke the A pillar away fron the roof.  You can start to see the crack now after the hard years of driving by me with the 4 speed.   Shocked  This happened in 1978 or 9 and it saw the light of day in Nov of 1989.  Still have all the original wheels & centers.   Also had a Wilson Co Motors emblem on back tail panel.  As you can see it got a new GM quarter, a door off the Cortez 69 parts car and a new GM left front fender.  Still has the original interior minus the dash pad.  This will be the weekend fun car (drag racing) once I get to it.

I purchased my Z10 in 1999 from the original family.  The car was in the showroom of my local Chevy dealer in Pampa, TX in May of 1969.  It was purchased as a graduation present for a high school Sr, who took the car off to college.  He would come home occasionally and by 1972 I owned a 68 Z28 and we got to know each other because of the cars.  Me the high school Sr. and he the college Sr.   He was killed around 1973 when he dug a cave in a sandbank at a local lake and it collapsed killing him.

The car stayed in the family and I eventually bought the car from his sister with the condition I wouldn't flip it and I would finish it.  It's been 15 years and it's now part of my family.  Who knows, one day maybe my 1 year old grandson may have the keys in his pocket?

Or you could sell it to me and put the cash in a 529 plan for your grandson!   Wink

This is my X66 car that I've owned since April 1982. It was restored once. At that time it had spoilers, special hood & rally sport. It will return to the way it was originally during restoration. The car has it's born with drivetrain. Sold new in Tucson at Orielly's Chevrolet on July 29, 1970. Released from Norwood September 4th, 1969....Joe

Is the white roof correct with the yellow car with black stripe??   Your car got out of Norwood production a couple of weeks ahead of mine.. Smiley

69Z28-RS.
Code is 76E which I like a lot. I like vinyl tops on 69s because of the color separation. The car has no paper work but I know it came with the following
396-325 hp
th400
p/s
pdb
a/c
tach & gauges
console
tilt
custom/deluxe yellow trim 714
special front bumper (still have all the jack parts)
custom belts
I added p/w, sports style trim & the rose wood
I don't know what wheels it left the factory with. I had a picture years ago that the original owner sent me that & it had 14x6 rally wheels which I knew was wrong. A guess is it had plain wheels & the dealer changed them to help sell the car. They had it almost a year.....Joe

The yellows & white cars were the only ones that kept the black stripes with a white top.
