Why are 69s worth more than 67s
« on: December 04, 2005, 11:29:07 PM »
Everywhere you look , the 69 camaros are bringin big bucks. On Barret-Jackson they bring loads more than the 67 camaros. Why is this?

 ...it's all about personal preference. People like the body style.

It has a lot to do with personal preference but I believe due to the COPO cars as well as the cross ram cars available in 1969 and not in 1967, those are the cars brining the biggest money.  As for personal preference, give me my vent windows.

Last year for the first and most popular Camaro generation.

Same with the Corvettes. 67 cars are worth the most. Last of the Second generation.
I understand it a little more with the Camaros - the 69 "looks" meaner - more refined.
Drives and handles better.

I never really understood the Corvettes as much.
My 66 is exactly the same, EXACTLY as the 67 in compontry and eguipment.
But the 66 cars have way more chrome on the sides and inside the cockpit.
I actually like the 66's better. took some time though.

At first I wanted only a 67, but this one grew on me right away.
Couldn't pass it up with all the options it had.

What about production numbers though, there were a lot more 69s made than 67s, and 67s can't be changed to Zs or any thing like that, whereas on 69s, the cowl tag isn't very specific and lets you get away with more. Just a thought

220,906 for 67 vs 243,085 for 69. So not much difference.
Both could have cowl tag modifications to 'change' the car. So that's not it.

Just a more popular body style.

Sit the two next to each other. If you can't see why a 69 is a much more awesome looking car You might want your eyes checked. The 67 and 68 Camaros look unfinished and quite dorky looking when sat next to a 69. You will hear 67 68 Camaro owners go on and on about how there isn't much difference between them and a 69. You will never hear a 69 owner say that. 69 was also the magical year for Muscle cars except for the Cuda and the Olds Cutlass. I would not trade my 69 for both a 67 and 68, I am surprised that there is not a bigger difference in price between them. The 69 was a single year model. Add the 67 and 68 production numbers together to get a more realistic grip on the production  numbers. Race a 67 or 68 against a 69 and that is one more feather in the 69's cap. I cant believe that 67 and 68 owners aren't enmasse in changing quarter panels and cowls now that all parts are available into 69 clones. But I guess 67 and 68 owners haven't figured that one out, when they do and there are only a couple dozen or so left original then they might be worth almost as much as a 69

That was undoubtedly, one of the funniest set of comments I've ever read on this forum.  Thanks for the laughs.  You have a remarkable talent for sarcasm, or so I believe it had to have been.  There is no way you could possible believe everything you just wrote otherwise.  Thanks again!!!

Oh Just having fun guys, When someone asks a question like that it kind of brings it out. Glad You enjoyed it that was pretty funny on the cloning them part. Glad People still exist who enjoy that. Eastern Canadians for some reason aren't able to figure out humorous sarcasm. eh   hehehe

I actually always would wonder why everyone didn't fill in their 68 marker light holes.
You could even paint frames on your glass?

Here is a true story - back in 1968 when the "New" 68 Corvette came out.
A few of the custom houses were selling shark bodys to fit on the 63-67 Cars.
You could buy just the nose, or the whole thing. Your old car would look new again.

No one wanted the cars, you could buy a used Midyear Corvette for $1000.

And back in 1964, people were cutting the split out of their split window coupe to make them look newer.

Turning your 7/8 into a 9? I have heard of stranger things. ::)

The one thing I would do if I were to customize my 69 body would be to put wing windows in it. Im going to customize my side marker lights though. (no body metal change) Im surprised no one has done what I am going to do on the marker lights I will post pictures when done.

People are actually changing some 69 firebirds into camaros. Go figure the firebird is a nice enough car as is.
I was just having a whole bunch of fun with first statement.
