We are proud to offer this very rare and extremely nice example of a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS / SS Convertible … This Camaro is in exceptionally nice condition inside and out and has had over $34,500 spent on cosmetics and mechanicals in the past 4 years.  This Camaro is finished in Daytona Yellow exterior with Black vinyl interior and features a power top and the highly desireable RS / SS X11 option packages.  When the previous owner acquired the car the engine that was installed was incorrect for a 1969 SS Camaro, so he pulled the motor and ordered a model correct crate 350 V8 motor from GM.  The color and build specs of this Camaro are correct per the trim tag, except for the non-numbers matching (but period correct) motor.  It drives very well and all of the electronics function as designed. The exterior is extremely clean with no body or paint flaws, dust or imperfections of any kind. The body was taken down to bare metal in 2013 and there was no signs of rust. The exterior chrome is excellent and shows no pitting. The interior upholstery, seats & carpeting are recently new with no signs of wear. The engine compartment is clean and detailed to a high standard, and the rims and tires show as new. The car runs and drives very well – fast and smooth! The undercarriage shows almost as nicely as the body! – very clean with no signs of improper storage or being used in rain. This Camaro is also one of the very few examples I have found on the market that has not been changed into a “resto-mod” or drag car. This is a stock looking period correct example in extremely nice condition. If I had to nitpick something on the car it would be that the interior trim pieces (such as the dash vents and ashtrays) are original and have some patina. I would also replace the added instrumentation with a correct center console gauge cluster.  Other than those two items I really have a hard time faulting anyting with the car.  It’s that nice!

Additional Details:

(VIN: 124679N649739), daytona yellow with black vinyl and houndstooth interior and a black convertible top.  The odometer

shows 36,700 miles and power is put to the ground through a TH350 auto trans.  The car has been driven less than 2,600

miles since a bare metal cosmetic restoration and motor replacement – the 300 hp and 380 ft.-lb. torque 350 cu.inch V8 is

correct for the ’69 SS Camaro, but not a numbers matching unit for this vehicle.  This Camaro correctly features front power

disc brakes, power steering, a 12 bolt multi-leaf rear end and N66 SS wheels.  Power has been increased with an Edelbrock

heads, short tube headers, Holley Carb and other bolt-ons.  Exterior cosmetics consist of black hockey stick fender stripes,

simulated rear fender louvers, front and rear fender moldings and front & rear spoilers & the SS hood featuring non-functional

hood vents.  Interior appointments include a full power top, black carpeting, a black and white houndstooth interior, a center

console with OEM horseshoe shifter, added instrumentation under the dashboard and the original GM radio face with modern

tech incl. a USB plug.  The vehicle also features a new OEM convertible top and new tires.  From all of my research I have

found that the RS / SS presentation of this Camaro is factory correct for this car.  Original books, manuals and promotional

materials.  Ready to be driven and enjoyed! Over $34,500 was spent on this Camaro by the previous owner from 05/2013 to

present day, including:

$16,740 spent on bare metal respray pain,  November 2012
$1,775 spent on new convertible top,  January 2013
$3,500 on new Chevrolet crate motor,  May 2013
$2,775.00 on new interior including carpeting and seat covers,  July 2013
$5,500 on Edelbrock performance mods,  June 2015

*15,866 V8 Convertibles were built in 1969.

The 1969 Camaro carried over the previous year’s drivetrain and major mechanical components, but all-new sheetmetal, except the hood and trunk lid, gave the car a substantially sportier look. The grille was redesigned with a heavy “V” cant and deeply inset headlights. New door skins, rear quarter panels, and rear valance panel also gave the car a much lower, wider, more aggressive look. This styling would serve for the 1969 model year only. Collectors often debate the merits of smooth, rounded lines of 1967 and 1968 model versus the heavily creased and sportier looks of the 1969.

To increase competitiveness in the SCCA Trans-Am racing series, optional four wheel disc brakes with four-piston calipers were made available during the year, under RPO JL8, for US $500.30.  This system used components from the Corvette and made for a major improvement (except when sport striping or Z28 Special Performance Package is specified), simulated rear fender louvers, front and rear wheel opening moldings, black body sill, RS emblems on grille, steering wheel and rear panel, Rally Sport front fender nameplates, bright accented taillights, back-up lights below rear bumper; also includes bright roof drip moldings on Sport Coupe. $131.65.  This option could be added to any other option (i.e., SS or Z/28), making the model an RS/SS or a RS/Z28.

The Z28 option was still available with the 302 cid small block.  It was backed by Muncie four-speed with a new-for-69 standard Hurst shifter and connected to a 12-bolt rear axle with standard 3.73 gears.  The 302 featured 11:1 compression, forged pistons, forged steel crankshaft and connecting rods, solid lifter camshaft, and Holley carburetion on a dual-plane intake manifold.  A dual four-barrel crossram intake manifold was available as a dealer-installed option.

The 1969 model year was exceptionally long, extending into November 1969, due to manufacturing problem that delayed the introduction of the second generation model planned for 1970.  It is a popular myth late-’69 Camaros were sold as 1970 models (due to GM publicity pictures of the ’69 Camaro labeled as a 1970), but they were all assigned 1969 VIN codes.
