69 Six Banger Coupe on Ebay
« on: October 07, 2016, 04:39:46 PM »
This '69 Coupe has a six cylinder VIN (full number is not listed in the ad) and was built as a 3-on-the-tree.  It is coded an X11 on the cowl tag, code 61 Burnished Brown, and had a white standard interior (I bet it was a real eye-catcher in full sunlight).  It's got quite a bit of rust and is listed for $6,500...I guess that's now the going rate for rusty heaps.  The original drivetrain is long-gone, and I seriously doubt anyone will return it to a six banger with 3-on-the-tree.  An interesting note is that "D BROWN" was written in chalk on the firewall at Fisher Body in Norwood, and is still very visible.  There are no "250" emblems on the fenders, so this was probably built with a 230.  Like my '69 Plain Jane six it was built as an X11 to spiff it up a little bit, although I see no signs of wheelwell trim, side quarter trim, or roofrail chrome.  In one of the photos you can see white pin stripes on the left rear quarter, which I believe were part of the Style Trim group option.

A rhetorical question...did dealers order six banger, 3-on-the-tree Camaros (which obviously were the least-desirable Camaros available), or were they special-order cars for really thrifty customers?

Price leaders - "We have 69's as low as $......."
