The Z/28 emblem would override the R/S emblem. Chevy wouldn't put two emblems on the car. What would they do on the rear body panel?
We CRGers know how it is supposed to be, but what about the guys building them back then. This may have been the first Z or, at least, Z/RS built in 69! Maybe there was some confusion or no clarity at the start of production and it got both emblems. Is that possible? Who knows if that is even the original grille. I am just throwing out an idea that perhaps early in production, some anomalies may have occured until assemblies were clarified by supervision. I could see how it could be possible to leave the plant with both emblems myself. Others have a thought? JohnZ? Ed?

Anything is possible, but two emblems on the grille would stick out like a sore thumb and probably wouldn't make it out of the plant. There were only two possible rear panel emblems - the Bowtie, and the Z/28, both of which had the same pre-pierced pin/hole pattern.

I thought there was also an RS rear panel emblem on rally sports that were neither SS or Z/28?

Well I hope it's not a member here, but they have removed the RS grille badge in the new ebay ad pics.

It looks like this new seller knows what he is doing. The way he has gotten the car out in the open, more showable, pictures and a much better description, He might make a little money.

Indeed. The gentleman has sold a couple of '69 Camaros in the last couple of months/year, but this is his biggest price to date. I like the "15 minute conversation" with Jerry MacNeish concerning the car, plus his direction to have Jerry come document the car after purchase. If only it had some documentation other than parts, he might get somewhere. Knowing today's market and some misinformed buyers, he still might get somewhere.
 
Not with my money - even as a "flat hood spoiler delete" rare car.

His one negative feedback rating came from an auction in 2013, a dispute over a Chevrolet Silverado truck descriptive condition.

I had a really good feeling this was where the car was heading..to be flipped specially with the rare color combo and the early production date !  He'll get 15K-18K for sure.  Not bad, a 6-8K profit to load-and-go !

The funny thing is that he probably had no clue to who Jerry Mc is ...lol, All that info and book came from the previous owner.

Just my opinion but I don't think he will get that much for it. No original drive train, major rust issues, needs everything, early non X coded car. Yes, unique color combo. He might make a couple thousand after all of his expenses but again I could be wrong. Have been before :)
