We are currently restoring two 1969 Dick Harrell built Camaro's. Both are very different models. One is an early [O1B] conversion car. It is a LeMans Blue SS 396. It was delievered to Harrell for conversion for Ed Black Chevrolet in New Mexico. It was a 396/375 horse M21 car. It was ordered with no spoilers, radio, console, etc the basic stripper. Harrell removed the original drivtrain and used a CE short block 512 427 using the 375 motor for the rest of the conversion. The carb was changes along with the intake. Doug Thorley headers were used in place of the original smog/manifolds. The cam was changed and the entire engine was blueprinted to Harrell's specs. The motor was painted with Glyptol on the inside. The conversion also included special Harrell rear spring clips,dash top mounted Sun tach,67 427 corvette style fiberglass hood, Edelbrock valve covers, extra cost Kelsey Stripper mag wheels, special exhaust and Harrell badging.
The second car is an O6A Fathom green COPO 427 Camaro automatic. This cars was converted by Harrell with most of the above equippment and used Halibrand mags and a very special American racing pedistal mounted aliminium air spoiler on the trunk.
Both of these cars are very rare and are documented examples. We only know of two other Harrell 69 Camaros, The mentioned Rallye Green one and a Daytona Yellow one. I feel that these are among the most special Camaros that were ever designed. Does anyone else know of any others? I would love to hear about them.
