SS/RS L78 124379N608599 Oylmpic Gold
« on: April 06, 2018, 11:41:52 AM »
Hi everyone

Anyone know the whereabouts of a 02D 1969 SS/RS L78 VIN 124379N608599? I used to own the car (early '90's) and last I heard it was sold by RK Motors. I have some old pics and info on the car.

Any info appreciated.

Last I know (2008), it was being restored. NOM, Jerry appraised it. I see that RM auction in 2012.

I think he means because it had the original numbers motor in it when he had it. Not a re-stamp at the time.

Hi all

Anyone know where this SS/RS L78 is?  I'd love to chat with the owner. I will try to dig some pics up of it when I owned it (92-97)

I would also like to see your old pics. My 69 was Olympic gold from the factory. It was blue when I bought it
