: Standard to Custom Interior
Jan 14th, 01, 04:46 AM
I am planning on redoing my standard 1969 Camaro interior to Deluxe. I know the front window regulators are different, but what about the rear. Also I have been told that all Deluxe interior packages include rear arm rests and ash trays I know the fold down rear seat ones did. I remeber seeing some pictures of Deluxe interior cars without rear arm rest. Is this true?
My car came from the factory with the Z23 interior upgrade. I have the Wood dash and passager grab handle already.

Only coupes with the fold down rear seat, or convertibles have the rear armrests, and consequently narrower rear seats in 69.

What about the rear window regulators? Are the the same for Deluxe, vs Standard?

I have been wondering about putting a houndstooth in my '68. My interior is a mixed batch, the cowl tag says it was a deluxe interior and the front door panels are custom but the rear appear to be standard. I saw that one supplier says there rear seat covers are for a narrow seat only. Anyone had this problem? Wes

I read the same thing about the rear seat. I do believe hounds tooth seat covers are avalible for the larger rear seat (non fold down). I am surprised someone isn't offering a fold down rear seat in the after market?

Let try this again. Does anyone know of a supplier offering a repo Deluxe rear seat cover for a 69 coup without arm rests (full size rear seat).
If this is not avavlable how hard is it to install rear arm rest? Can the orginal rear seat and back be cut to the smaller size? Anyone done this?

there are not deluxe full size seats, they were only in deluxe interior cars, which had the shorter seat like the conv / fold down cars, because of the armrests.

I have seen pictures of Deluxe Comfortweave 69's without rear arm rest. This is very confussing. I thought the arm rest were only in fold down coupes and convertables?
I just got a Paddock cataloge yeaterday and they claim to offer a Comfortweave seat cover replacement. This is different what they call deluxe material for the 69. I am assuming a Comfortweave material was not avaliable and now is. Has anyone sean one of these Comfortweave replacement seat covers? Do they really look like the orginals?

The deluxe interior was available with both comfortweave and houndstooth. I have a 1969 sales brochure and it has a picture of a car with a deluxe comfortweave interior. I don't remember if it had rear armrests though.
As far as I know, the comfortweave material the suppliers are currently selling is not correct. It's been a while since I looked, so that may not be the case now.
I bought my houndstooth covers from Year One about 7 years ago. At that point, they were selling the rear cover for the wide rear seats. I think I remember them making a point of the fact that deluxe cars only came with narrow rear seats (which means they all had armrests), but again, I could be wrong on this.
Blk69, there should be no difference between the rear window regulators. The upper portion of the rear 1/4 panel on the deluxe w/armrests is flat with no dielectric decorations welded in - just a flat panel covered with vinyl.

Blk69, I hear everybody talking of the difference regarding the door window regulators, but what about the difference betwen the deluxe and standard door opening mechanisms or inner door handles, I think they are different also. As for the rear quarter window regulators, most catalogs offer the same part number for both styles.

You are right Orench, the interior door handes are different. A past owner installed yellow (now painted black) deluxe door panels with the correct door mechanisms already. This is what is provoking me to do the rest of my interior Deluxe instead of Standard. The whole interior look its 32 years.

One important part when you redo your front bucket seats is the seat foam, the deluxe upholstery has different height levels dictated by the sewns in the bottom and back of the seat. That original look will be attained if you have a good seat foam padding. What I'm telling is that the standard seat is kinda flat oposed to the deluxe.Also the installation is a little tricky cause you have to pull some areas from underneath the seat to make it look right. Good luck...

How many 69 Camaros are there Down in Puerto Rico?
Feb 14th, 01, 02:43 PM
Sorry, but I really don't have an idea, at different auto shows I've been I can count ±20. But thats just a small area, P.R. consist of 78 cities and towns and an area of 100 X 35 miles. I would say more than a hundred.

That is cool. I didn't have any idea how many 69 Camaro were still around the world. It is good to hear there are Camaro enthusiast around the world.

Well I got a '67 (obviously) and I got deluxe interior and rear backseat armrests. No folddown backseat though.
I think all you need for the front door handles is the deluxe handle. Not sure though I bought the car with the deluxe. Had std from the factory. I do need new foam for the front seat though.
I can try to help as much as I can just email me.
