The paint is factory silver and the interior is the factory interior and is in great condition. It also still has the original exhaust with the resinators.127000 miles on the car. If anyone knows about it or how to find out I would appreciate the info.

I think it all depends on each persons definition of "rare". Compared to a 69 ZL1 or COPO 427 car it's not very rare. But compared to a "base" car it's fairly rare. 20302 Z/28's were built out of 243,085 Camaros in 1969. Of that 20302 an unknown percentage were R/S optioned cars. The R/S option added to a Z/28, SS car or COPO car makes it more rare in terms of numbers of cars with the options combined. I would say your car is rarer than most 69 Camaros,some on this sight will disagree with me(there has been some good discussions on this subject in the past) Cary

Even just judging by what you see at shows and cruise ins, the # of RS Z's is far lower than the # of standard Z's you will see. I would say it is pretty rare and definitely a good find if it is really complete. Good luck ~ John

I would estimate that they probably made 3000-5000 RS/Z28's in 69. Not real rare like the COPO, ZL1, JL8. But, a real 69 RS/Z28 is very desireable especially being original like that. It sounds like a great car, but give us some more details.

stretrdr,

I noticed you are from G.G. Have you ever been to the Saturday morning car show in Huntington Beach on Magnolia and Adams? It's a free show lot's of quality cars. You have to get there early @6AM before the lot fills up, most cars are gone by 10AM.

Hmmm...Huntingdon Beach, eh. I wonder how many tankfuls that'd be in my car? 454 w/4.10's. Coming from Mira Mesa(just inland of La Jolla). My company www.covad.com is located in Huntingdon Beach, maybe I could find an excuse to come up there one weekend and expense it! hehehe Sounds like a plan to me!

Mike,

That's some expense account you must have. There aren't that many Camaros at the show sure would be nice to see more. Anyway the show or hot rod get together happens every Saturday morning starting @6AM, there are about 150 cars all years makes models. It's fairly close to Classic Industries so you could go there afterwards and pick up something you need for your 68.

You missed the paint code. I assume it's either 69-69 or 69-B or ......
Everything looks fine with those #'s, but they don't tell us a whole lot, just that it is a V8 LA car with std black interior.
What's the #'s on the engine pad, stamped on the side of the trans and stamped on the rear axle? See the 'Decoding' section of www.camaros.org for a great sketch of the axle location and info on the trans location.

Those #'s will tell us much more.

Wouldn't that early of a car have a 7k tach?
The 8k's didn't start phasing in 'til around Jan. 69.

McCorry,

You have a car in your Van Nuys registry that is 2 cars after his VIN (507143), looks like you better add this one to your registry.
