Caveat Emptor...only looks like a '69

From the ad:

The SS '69 Camaro offered here is an excellent example: classic good looks with respectfully upgraded performance.

The Camaro's original build and identification tags remain as mounted at the Norwood, Ohio assembly plant.

If that is true, it was a '68 restored as a '69.

I have seen plenty of misleading ads, this is a new low.

Of course "The Camaro's original build and identification tags remain as mounted at the Norwood, Ohio assembly plant" are not shown.
