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.

Take a look at this link:

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

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:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=487.0;all

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.   :(

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.

I restored one with the same colors in 2001 (wish that I hadn't) that I owned for about 4 years. Extremely good looking combination. Last I heard it was in NJ.

As far as I can tell it is all there.  The DZ302 was out of the car on a stand next to it.  The tranny was in the trunk.  I brought it home and wrapped it up for the winter, so I really didn't have time to look at all the dates/numbers that are on the car.  I am afraid to unwrap it, cause then I am going to want to start working on it.  I have a 67 Mustang that I have to finish first.

Tim,
That combo comes off very well.  I was afraid it would just be too orange.  But I like it!

Still like to see a picture of the tag --when you get a chance.

Would you mind if I posted or would you mind posting your pics in this thread:
http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=487.0;all
I'm trying to get as much info and as many perspectives as I can on vinyl tops.

BTW, sell the mustang  ;) and work on the Camaro  ::) !  That's what I did...  ;D  ;D  ;D

When looking at the number three picture of the eBay car, item #320110448608, the front left Camaro emblem blends into  the black stripe. Is this the correct placement for the emblem?

Someone actually listed it in the classifieds.  The ad said "69 camaro rag top for sale".   I called my buddy and we went and looked at it right away and when they opened the shed door and we both just about crapped.  From the ad I was thinking convertable, not 69 Z28 w/a vinyl top.

Wow, what a striking combination !  Hugger Orange inside & out !!

When was this orange hounds tooth deluxe interior offered on non-Indy Pace Cars?  Early, mid, or late builds?

It was available for all cars at the same time. About Feb. 69.
It would appear that the pacers drove it's availability.

This orange/orange/black convertible is not original, nor was it originally a Big block.  The a/c evaporator housing is from a small block.  Houndstooth wasn't available in convertibles except for the pacecars, I beleive both the orange and yellow houndstooth was announced as being available in Feb or 69 for coupes only.

Good catch Mark. All cars here means all coupes and the Indy pacers. :)
