Cars built prior to late october could not have a suffix code (A B C) on the transmission. IIRC Oct 18 or 20th  is the first day of trans suffix codes.

I also thought the red was to bright, but I am guessing they doctor the photos for brilliance to get them to pop, and bring buyers in.

That is correct. Also, the white will make the red 'pop' even more. Also, nice lighting makes a huge difference. This is coming from my trade as a cameraman.
Just another T/A fanatic. A new project in the works.

From the drivetrain decoding section...

  1969 Muncie 4-speed only:
          A = M20
          B = M21     Use of the Muncie type suffix
          C = M22     began with 21 Oct 68 production.

Imo, for what it's worth, this dealer is fishing. 99% of them know nothing about these cars but they look at what other dealers ask and always go above because they think they  can sell it. I think it'll be sitting on his floor for a while.  To each his own but I don't like the colors any way. Red reminds me of a fire truck on '69s  ;D. Red looks much better on the 67/68 cars, imo. That particular red actually looks a bit darker to me - maybe it's the clear on it that makes it pop. Factory paint was sprayed using enamel, quick and dirty. Orange peel and runs were the norm.

Incorrect. Camaros were painted with acrylic lacquer. Only wheels were painted with enamel.
