New Guy... Just adopted a 37 year old
« on: October 09, 2006, 02:47:48 AM »
Greetings,

My search for a '69 Camaro came to an end yesterday.  Bought a '69 Olympic Gold SS.  It is a survivor, amazingly original condition with the exception of  3 year old paint job.  350, 3-speed Muncie, 12 bolt posi, AM Radio its all there.  The car has always been garaged and spent its life in Colorado.  Zero body rust and the interior is very nice but needs a few pieces to be 100%.

The kicker... it's a one owner car, and the previous owner was the service manager at a Chevy dealership, he passed away, the wife sold the car!

I am black and blue from pinching myself, thought this only happened in dreams, but so far it's all good.  You probably think I am pulling your leg, but this is for real.

The car has the usual droopy rear springs and is missing the front font spoiler.  So my first question is who would you reccomend for replacement parts. 

Your input will be sincerely appreciated.

John S.

Its a 3 speed? looks like an SS with the hood and hockey stripe,are you sure its a 3 speed? Nice car good luck with it and welcome to the camaro family ;D Did you get the original paperwork with the car ? The protecto plate, sales contract or dealer invoice? If so all that documentation is very important and should be put in a safe place!! Oh and I forgot we must have MORE PICS ;D so we can drool over your new camaro :D

3-Speed was the base transmission, even for an SS350   :)

As requested more pictures.

As for paperwork other than the 1970 title to the car, no other paperwork.

The ole gal said she thew it all out a few years back.  I haven't had a chance to look for the build sheet.

Very nice... they must have put a new interior in the car as well...

It is very original under the hood, how does the suspension look?

No need to be sorry.  Man, that Z/28 is a thing of beauty.  So tell me is it legit or a "clone"?
