I seem to be missing a screw on the end of the dash carrier. I replaced the carrier and threw out the original. I can't feel a hole from the back side.
Could one of you guys measure where the screw goes for me?, or maybe a good photo, Thanks.   George.

The best designed car...ever. Love the Lemans Blue with white top. The brother of an old girlfriend in high school had an RS Z Lemans Blue with 'EVERYTHING' white and houndstooth. My first exposure to the 69 Z. What an image.

Glad I finally saw a good pic your 'Maro, George. Looks fantastic!! ;D Glad to hear you'll make it to the 'nats - we had to cancel at the last moment. :(

Also, if ya need a pic of that shroud screw head, let me know. Be glad to take one for ya - unfortunately, it'll be around the end of the week before I can get home.

Y'all take care,
Mike.

Hey it may be " No Yenko", but I would say you really made out with very clean looking car.

So I have a question, did all SS cars come with a front and rear spoiler?

Nope. Spoilers were an option (RPO D80).

Thanks for the nice comments guys.
Probably most cars you see with spoilers were added as was mine. The rear deck lid had holes drilled but has questionable deck lid. The front I added. George

I thought I was buying a fairly rust free all original car and was willing to pay a little extra. Turned out I had to replace the quarters, wheel wells, 1' square of the floor, and trunk floor so that killed my initial budget. I can't do bodywork or painting in my shop so I sent that out. I also farmed out the seat covers, headliner, vinyl top install, chrome work, and trans overhaul. All the assembly and remainder I was able to do over 3 years, with allot of help from CRG guys. I probably have 65K invested total but saved 30K in my labor if I had to pay a shop to restore it. Just a guesstimate. George

I know I sure liked looking at it George and you did GREAT as Tony the tiger says. :) There were a lot of changes to those deck lids as even the stamping changed location. And better yet, it was a real pleasure meeting you and having some conversation.
Love that color combo and Big Block!

Very nice job George. My x66 car looks just like yours under the hood. It is a real pain to keep it looking that nice...Joe

Your car looks great.

For my information did you replace the rear springs and shock absorbers on your SS 69. If yes what were your part numbers and codes.

Thanks

I replaced the five leaf springs with units from HBC, they were very nice copies of my originals. I had one leaf cracked in each rear. The shocks I replaced with  Monroe gas shocks because I heard the repro spiral shocks were not so good. I plan to drive this car after a couple shows and the ride is important to me.

As you know a BB with AC is more of a hassle to work on, but I wouldn't have it any other way. George
