69 RS z/28 Barn Find
« on: May 07, 2007, 08:04:43 PM »
Hey,  since this is my first post, I would like to say "Hello"   to all the camaro fanatics in here.  I am sure I will be lurking around a lot when it get time to start tearing into my barn find.

Here is the info.  What I would like to know is how rare is this combination Int Color/Ext Color w/ Black top.  I have yet to see a specimine like it. 

Vin #124379N6****

ST69     12437    NOR    328***   BDY
TR 720                                72B PNT
05C                                     33x

I found the car in Nov 06.  I hadn't been licensed since 1982.

Hi and welcome -

Take a look at this link:

It's the best info we have on exterior colors so far.   :)

How about posting a picture...  I'd like to see what the black top looks like!

To be honest, from CBR9SeaDoo's description I have some questions about the look of the 72 paint with the black vinyl top and the look of the 720 interior with that exterior combination.  I'm not trying to say anything bad about it.  I'm actually intrigued by it.  That would bring a whole different perspective to our discussion of vinyl tops:

CBR9SeaDoo, I really would like to include some pictures of your car in that discussion.

Paul,  I do like the look of your Ebay example.  It's sort of the same look as my 76 MGB. (Sometime in the 70s MG red started looking a lot more like orange.)  But according to the cowl tag for that car it is TR713, not 720 and 67B not 72B.  It is that TR720 and 72B combination that has me intrigued.  I've never seen it.

Hey,

I have to resize all my images.  I will try and get that done so you can see it.  I will also have to go unwrap the car and get a pic of the cowl tag for you. 

LakeHolme - You are seeing the same thing as I did.  I have yet to see another TR720/72B combination.

Paul,  to me it looks like the stripes on the D80 spoiler are painted wrong.  I don't think they are suppose to wrap around.

You're correct.  The stripes on the header panel are painted wrong also.  It looks like a Chevelle.   :(

Very cool!   8)   8)   8)  That's the first one I've seen with those colors.  Are you going to restore it?

My plan is to restore it to its original condition, but I am really interested to see how rare it is.  I am still in shock that I was able to find something like this in a barn.
