Ben, the ebay seller, likes to use the word 'rare'. A lot.

I must be missing something here . I own a body shop and have restored  many camaros and have a few of my own. I also own a 69 RS Z flat hood no spoiler . Any body that pays more than 5K  for that car is nuts

What's Jerry suppose to write ? For some reason it sort of irks me seeing people throwing names out there in descriptions that really have no relevance to the particular car being sold. What's next, " viewed by many on CRG ! "

Always curious to see what they go for ,I guess doesn't make mine any cheaper, all things considered.

 At $12,000. now, a long way from the $23,000. he was first dreaming of. I no longer see a buy it now or a reserve.
Also I notice that the first seller stated "Selling a REAL 69 RS Z-28 project car that I picked up 8 years ago in central Florida from the original owner which had sat in his backyard since he blew the motor in 1975"
The new sellers "barn find" description, "
THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING SINCE 1975 WHICH MEANS IT HAS NOT BEEN ON THE ROAD FOR 39 YEARS, THE OWNER JUST LEFT THE CAR AT HIS BARN IN LEESBURG FLORIDA AND LEFT TO THE U.S MILITARY.

Typical flipper/car salesman garbage.

Sold for $12K  If he paid the $9500. that the first seller wanted plus expenses he couldn't have made more than a grand or two profit if that.

Digging up an old thread, car is for sale again on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Camaro-RS-Z28-/152190076892
Located: New Paris, Ohio
Seller: l891969
Pretty honest and upfront description:
Quote
1969 Camaro RS Z28. Very rare color combo of code 69 cortez silver with 718 red interior. Let me start off by saying this is one of the rustiest cars I've seen but it's a real RS Z. When seeing this car in person the question isn't whether it's a real RS Z, the question is how much will it cost to restore. I purchased it off eBay 2 years ago for 10k. Payed $1000 to ship and purchased a date coded 4 bolt main block for it.  All I have with the car is the bare block, which is date coded but NOT a dz.  Nothing else.  No trans either. The original 12 bolt is still under the car
  The story I heard was the original engine and Trans was pulled in the mid 70s, along with the flat hood and radiator, and then the car was left out to pasture so to speak. It was described to me to be much more solid than what it is. This car has rust in places I've not seen one rust before. Amazingly though, almost most all other items were left on the car. The original 12 bolt 3.73 rear is under it. Seats and console still in the car. Z28 only steering arm. Most, but not all RS stuff. Original disc brake setup. It appears to have one crappy re spray years ago of blue but it looks like they didn't even sand the original paint down because it coming thru all over the car including the original stripes.
I have a clear title and mileage shows only 51k. I am selling exempt due to the fact it is not complete or have an engine in it. It had a Florida 1975 plate on it which I'm guessing is the last time it was on the road. Car does roll and steer for shipping.
Plan on giving this car a complete and total restoration. You may be able to save a few items here and there but I'm selling it as EVERY SINGLE piece and panel needs replaced. I'm not trying to scare bidders away I just want to be more honest than the guy that sold it to me. If possible, the best thing to do is look at it in person. I hope that someone does build this car because it will be a beauty if taken back original.

The salty Florida air wasn't too kind to this one.  I think a 3rd person has now realized the cost of the extensive restoration this one would need, forsale again.

Wow! At what point do you just sell off the few decent parts and let mother nature finish what she started with the rest of it.

I'd say now  ;D   There is nothing there but a rolling body, and not much of that either. Considering you can buy a nice number matching car cheaper than the cost of restoring this rolling shell, it's going to be a tough sale.  By the time you're done with that one there would be nothing left original but a vin number.  Sadly,  sometimes people let these things sit too long and go too far.

I wouldn't be surprised if that tag winds up on another body

Well maybe the best thing for this car is a re-body?

Lets say the firewall and a couple other small areas was the only thing you could save, and then replaced everything else, would it really be worth more that way? (than re-body)

Same guy owned the late 10 10 car that was just on ebay. He told me this car was worse and I wasn't sure that was possible. I didn't see it when I was there. How can Florida car be rotten underneath more than a salted ohio car! I looked at a red z in Fort Meyers that was sold new in Miami 4 years ago. It was worse than my burgundy car but nothing like the silver one
