Fahad, was the cowl tag like that when you purchased the vehicle?

That looks like a fun project. Good luck and we all hope see pictures of your progress. Mine is also a 11C car and built only about 3700 after yours according to the vin #.
Red with White stripes is a great color combination. Have fun with your car.

Interesting on the top. Was there halo trim if the car had the two tone paint or the trim that is showing on Fahads car now? Maybe a dealer installed vinyl top at one time? Wouldn't the pins under the trim indicate anything?

I will check the original color during body disassembly process.

Great project, it looks dusk blue now, maybe it was just ordered sans stripes... which would have netted the - - on the TT.

BTW...Another 69 color which could have been on a - - car and is much brighter than Garnet Red is MONZA RED the Corvette color, it is also the RED STRIPE color on 69 Camaro's.
Car was originally a SB the underhood lamp is on the drivers side which is where the SB dipstick was located.

I haven't seen a Camaro special ordered Monza red from the factory. So that brings up a good question regarding his car: What percentage of the 69 Camaros were ordered with special paint, or stripe delete? ( I see on the CRG percentage by color, but not for special order)

I'm very curious what the original color was.
Originally a 4-speed or an automatic?

If you are determined to paint it red, I'd do the Monza Red with SS side stripes.

I'd like to see the Monza, just to see a different color.

Good day all,

I would like to introduce my 69 Camaro SS/RS restoration project in Saudi Arabia, I am appreciating and happy to share it here, also to see members suggestion, help, observation and advice.

Let's start, my car is 69 SS/RS Camaro and located in Saudi Arabia and I am going to restore it to original condition as much as I can.

It looks like Chevy trucks are popular in Saudi Arabia too.   Smiley
