Black X22
« on: May 22, 2022, 02:40:14 AM »
I was at a local cruise-in in my Camaro and saw a black with red hockey stick
stripe 1969 Camaro X-22. It has black standard interior, no console or tach. It was
raced most of it’s life. Original paint, interior, carpet. It was originally an L78
car but original engine and transmission long gone. The tail panel was painted
satin black?

Looks like he added a spoiler and repainted the tail panel as evidenced by the way the masking was done where the 1/4 meets the tail panel near the weatherstrip.

Could be that the paint shop who did the job omitted painting the back panel semi-flat for BB's and the owner took it on his own to do it right?

Except, the consensus believes gloss black is correct for tail panel on bb cars. So owner did not do it “right”, according to the accepted standard.

From: http://www.camaros.org/exterior.shtml#BlackoutPaint
There was also a paint color exception for the SS-396 tailpan black-out, but it was limited to black vehicles and the Z11 and Z10. Black SS-396 cars would not have received the (semi-gloss) blacked-out tailpans. But it should be noted that a few original paint black SS-396's have been observed with blacked-out tailpanels - the paint difference is only visible at the paint tape line.

Great to see a car survive like this. Next time you see it, as it likely will show up again at your local show look closely at the painted hockey stripe, it will have these little tick marks from the stencil ever 1-2"s, not easy to spot.  New stencils don't have a way to replicate that (I think).  Pretty sure its original paint with the red oxide primer wear through on tops of fenders, but the stripe will be the best way to confirm. Once you look closely at it you will figure it out. Thanks for posting! Always love the rare silver grill ;)

Bentley, This might be what he's talking about. This is LH & RH on Guy Youndell's L78. It's about a foot back from the fromt of the fender...Joe

The tick marks are from when the stencil was separated from the section to be painted, the original die had slight skips every 4"-6" in the cut, when the section to be striped is removed it leaves a little fuzzy tick which shows when the stripe is painted.

The silver car above shows the mismatch when the 2 part stencil was applied.

Steve Shauger had/has an early September 68 built IIRC which has a terrible mismatch of the 2 part stencil, the front part and rear part of the stencil dive down and almost come to a V shape where they meet.

How rare is the silver grill on an '69 RS car ? Was it part of a certain package when ordering, did it depend if it was a Z or regular

 Camaro ? I have two photos in my files, one of a Z and another of a 396 car, both in France with the silver RS grill.

Others more knowledgeable than me might correct this, but to the best of my knowledge a silver grill on any RS 1969 Camaro only came with a black painted body.  I'm guessing the factory thought maybe the regular black RS grill was too much on a black car with the RS option.
