It's a V8 coupe assembled in Ohio. Came with std blue int and I believe Blacier blue and dusk blue paint. Assembled 3rd wk in dec '68 and came with style trim x-11. your car was the 67964th '69 made. This site is a good ref for codes and also the CRG (Camaro Reserch Group) site. I am sure KurtS will provide the link when he reads your post.

The VIN says it was a V8 and X11 means it had style trim and *could* be an RS but could not be a Z or a big block. So, that leaves the 327, the LM1, or the L48 (SS350). So does it have the original engine in it? What rearend? 2 fuel lines back to the tank?
Look at http://www.camaros.org/diffs69.shtml for more details.
Let us know what you find.
That's a really neat car because of the 2 tone paint. Still painted that way? BTW, those roof moldings are different from a vinyl top car.

How so, Kurt? Completely different, or just in width?

Yes, it has the original 327 in it with 76k original miles. Has a 350 turbo transmission. The interior is black & the exterior has been painted red. Factory AC and power brakes. How much do you think it's worth?

I have a favor to ask then: could you tell me the engine code stamped on the pad and if the VIN is stamped on the pad?
This is close to the end of the 327 in production before they changed to the 307 and we have very little info on 327 cars. Thanks.
Too bad on the colors in my opinion. Lots of red cars with black interiors. Not too many 2-tone blue ones. http://www.camaros.net/forum/smile.gif
On the value, condition is everything. Body, paint, interior, engine, etc. Hard to even hazard a guess without knowing a lot more about the car.
On the mouldings, I think they are different edges (since one was next to paint, the other was next to vinyl). Don't know for sure since I've never seen one. The parts manual specifically shows different part #'s.
