Oct 30th, 07, 09:05 AM
I was searching for the thread that i posted before about the 69 cut-away camaro that I had pictures of from the early 90's?? Anyway, I came across the following thread http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=100399
where it says that 3 cars were made...and 2 in America were crushed...
this car is definitely NOT Rick's car...it is way nicer condition...does anyone know where this car is now???(one that got away)
So how many were really made?? Does anyone really know??
I just found and scanned the pics...can I email them to someone so they can be posted...difficult posting them :(

You need to save the pics on a site, then provide links. There are plenty of free hosting sites. Some favorites seem to be www.photobucket.com or even www.cardomain.com
I can also put them up for you if you want to email them to me.

Tha car is in great shape ! Wonder if its worth more as is than putting it together as a running car :) Hey..does it have a trim tag and Vin ?

cool display car
What is that decal on the front bumper and back panel?

With the reinforcement in the trunk and the blue with white houndstooth, there ar a lot of similarities to the Rick's display car.

hey bret...thanks a million!! I probably made it real difficult on you... but I thought the Team Camaro fans would like to get a look. Just found these old pics...I had a chance to buy this car back around 91 or 92 I believe...unfortunately, I had just purchased another car...and the 'now' ex-wife put a nix on spending more of the 'house' money...hehehe...
it does have a VIN and title, and it is real low production, but i can't remember?? Notice the walnut early steering wheel...I did not even think about a cowl tag at that point...I was too awed by the car itself...I thought for sure it was 'the one and only'...and then Rick's showed up... and the stickers are small GM stickers on all 4 sides...
Thanks again Bret...hope ya'll enjoy..

There is a full page picture of this car on page 54 of my old 69 Camaro reference book by John Hooper. The car is on display at a show. Next to the car is another sub-frame with wheels and engine but no sheet metal. Also the cutaway car is posed with the body lifted UP like a dump truck bed starting to lift. The photo is black and white but it looks identical to the above car. I'd take a picture of the page and post it but I don't own the copy right.

From what i recall at the time the other front nose and subframe were long gone along with the display...I believe the original cut-away hood was missing too...but All of the cut-away motor stuff was the neatest part to me...Check out the clear flywheel and valve covers...and all the little labels...and I recall the owner explaining that the body lift mechanism in the trunk was chain driven and attached to the yoke of the rear and the tires were attached stationery to the display which would cause the body to lift...this was over 15 years ago,...and this is all from my now somewhat burnt out memory..so ???
The car was in excellent original shape..I think it had only 1 small dinger...it only has a handful of miles ..its never been street driven...
