Have you disassembled any parts of the car looking for original paperwork? Such as seats or carpet removed?
It looks like exhaust got changed out, (as many have). What other items got replaced or went out? How much of the original paint is still on the car?
What kind of documentation did you get with it?

Tires, exhaust, battery, plugs and small tuneup components. Just a few paint touch ups, so 90 + Orig paint.

Regarding documentation, I have predelivery inspection, dealer invoice, bank document, orig title copy, original registration, protecto plate, orig keys with punch outs and misc saleman notes.  I spoke with the original owner yesterday and he confirmed just about everthing I had learned, and at 87 he's as sharp as ever.

Very good info. I am glad you were able to get so much off the original paperwork. It seems like some of these original owners think alike, on keeping anything and everything from the car. I am surprised the window sticker is a harder one to come across. I always try to get them from any cars I purchase, but even on some of these original owner cars, they are not found. That is great you still converse with the original owner, it is like stepping back in time, when ever I talk to the original owners wife of my car. The memories seem so crystal clear.
Did this car have the 3 wire "mickey mouse" spark plug wire separators when you got it? (Hard to tell from the pics) Also since you see many original low mile 69 survivor cars at your show, do you see it often enough to think it was used the entire 69 model year?

no. it was talked about in another thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=14620.0

Curious if this car had them, or how often Steve runs across them since he sees so many original low milage cars, and if he has seen them run all the way through the 69 model year on Camaros.

Oh, I was totally unaware of these. I looked at the pics of this car again, and it almost looks like I see one of these separating the plug wires on the engine right side just to the left of the breather hose from the air cleaner to the valve cover?

I agree JimmyV...  it does appear to have the 3-wire separator installed...  :)

Austin:  The AIM pages which showed and referenced that separator didn't show any 'revision' dates which would indicate it was only installed part of the year...  ie. based on the AIM, these would have been installed the entire year.

Well you guys have better eyes than me. I can see a clip on the passenger side, it could be that 3 wire mickey mouse clip.
The original owner must have had a very gentle touch when swapping the valve covers not to have damaged it.

I would think the engine heat would have made it brittle as well over the years. I have had larger more heavy duty wire separators that got brittle for this reason.

Separator is clearly there.  I have had glass for over 40 years and even I could see it.  lol  :)

I see what you are talking about on the passenger side, just not the best pics of it.

I was looking closely at the pics of Skips car on the drivers side of the motor and didn't see it. I do see a clip on the passenger side where the AIM shows it to be. thanks
