That sure looks like a 69 Firebird interior (dash, steering wheel etc) Maybe it morphed into a Camaro ???

Nope, it started out as a Camaro if the VIN is correct... 124379N544009

 that dash area doesn't look quite right, maybe modified? Pretty interesting to see someone move the battery tray to the firewall. I have seen it relocated to the trunk, but first time seeing someone relocate to the firewall.

Interesting...Looks more like a 67 Camaro/Firebird dash panel. Needs some forensic work done to determine what year it is. TT indicates a very early built 69 and if it is, what happened to the original dash panel? Do we have a mystery on our hands? I'm intrigued.

The switches correspond more to a 69 firebird dash, but the 4 hole assembly in the middle doesn't ... is that for gauges, or AC?

Yup...

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

Paul

Yes it is.

Fahad, could you take some more close up or detailed pictures of the dash and the VIN (serial) number?

firebird, and then quarters and tail panel swapped out? Possibly, or someone swapped out the dash.

Hey Fahad how about a pic of the Vin stamp on the top of the cowl? or about where your battery tray is on the firewall?

"I found this pic of a 69 TA dash."

I saw those as well, seems like they all have those vents in the dash, and his doesn't  have those, but has the 4 holes in the center.

Very unusual car Fahad has. I am so curious what he actually has, a Camaro or a Firebird. There are really only a few things that would confirm it either way isn't there? As already said, a replacement dash (fiberglass?) which does appear to be a 69 Firebird without the a.c./astro vents in the corners and the added 4 center holes and the dash pad looks more 67 with no drop down legs. Then all the Camaro body panels on it if it is a Firebird.  Would explain the 67-68 vinyl top trim too,but I understand that some installers used those even on some 69's. Here'a pic of a 69 Penske car with an added vinyl roof cover, unless that is really a modified 67-68 body.
