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.

Very nice find! is it all there? engine, tranny etc etc

Dave

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.

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

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:

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

Here's a second convertible (this one has a black top) with that color combo:

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.
