Description for Chevrolet Camaro 1969

The car looksand smells as it didwhen it rolled out of the factory in, et so much more amazingly spectacular!!!

1969 Camaro SS 350 - Original, umbers matching car

350/300HP with Muncie 4speed

Rare Fold-Down Seat

A painstaking rotisserie, ut & bolt restoration to factory original was completed in June 2010. Less than 120 miles have been put on the car since completion.

This car was purchased new at Goode Chevrolet in Napa, alifornia in 1969. It stayed in Napa until June 2010 when it moved with me to Sacramento. The second owner purchased the car in 1978 and sold it to me (third owner) in 1998. It sat in my garage until 2008 when I finally began the restoration.

Tank sticker (included) was removed by me. It is crinkled and has some tears. Much of it is illegible. It was placed in a plastic Ziploc and hasn't been touched since I removed it from the gas tank.

Odometer: 33,063

Over 100 pictures of the restoration including pictures of original part numbers & date codes. Also, picture of the VIN number on the body, akenwhile on the rotisserie.

The original engine block was cracked and replaced with a donor block from a 1969 Camaro SS Indy Pace Car.

Car retains all the original sheet metal except the hood

Everything works, ncluding the clock, hich was converted to Quartz.

This beauty has won several awards including Best in Class at the Ironstone Concours in Murphys and the Serrano Concours in El Dorado in 2011.

It was on display and featured in the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento, A
