Caveat Emptor..too late for JL8
« on: August 21, 2017, 02:43:28 PM »
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-Chevrolet-Camaro-/332351535530?hash=item4d61b1f9aa:g:nJkAAOSwjuBZmhjv&vxp=mtr

124379N693672 was final-assembled on or about Tuesday September 30, 1969. JL8 was cancelled in production July 21, 1969. Added along with the cross-ram, headers, TI ignition, sway bar.

Sold at Barrett-Jackson LV 2011 for $84,700. At that time it was not a Rally-Sport, did not have headers or the body-color bumper. The listing does not mention JL8.

Am I missing something here? The eBay photos don't show Rally Sport? ???

Beats me. It is mentioned three times in the ad text:

Fully restored Norwood built X33 Rally Sport Z28 with 37,000 miles

A genuine X33 Rally Sport Z28...

special badging that were part of the Rally Sport package...

Text also mentions headers and body-color bumper, not seen in the photos.

A poor ad, composed by someone that is not knowledgeable about 1st Gen Camaros and his own car.

Yes Len we made it thanks.  Lost power for 7 days but thankfully we have a 15000w portable generac gen which powered the entire house ac and most other.  Just a pain in the rump for the Mrs to refuel daily as it sucked 30 gals a day.   She had to operate while I was on duty.  Was stuck at the firehouse Sat thru Monday mng as she rode thru.  This was the final straw..lol, in 3 weeks we're having generac bury a 500 gal propane tank with a stationary unit.

I was just in the keys (islamorada) yesterday.. what devastion.

I'm sure you were sweating it also. :(

I e-mailed him this:
unfortunately JL8 was discontinued in July 69. Buyer beware!!!

his response was:
They stop producing them in July they special ordered them after July you can talk to the head Chevy guys you don t know what you re talking about my car is the real deal doesn t matter it s already sold I have 4 buyers the car one brought out a certification and an inspector to verify a true JL8 and it came up as the real deal just another person like you but didn t believe it but it s real I get all these lame ass guys can t afford a pair of shoe string but they want to. Act like they re professionals and know everything about everything and they don t even own shit they don t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out but I m all good
