Re: The Breeze 1969 convertible project
1984, year 5
Ouch, another derelict Camaro in need of my care was found in mid-Michigan while I was home visiting friends. A 1969 SS-RS coupe, highly optioned and very rusted, was added to the fleet for $3,000.
Not the original 350, but a healthy one, TH350, 12 bolt posi, AC, Frost green, dark green vinyl top, deluxe medium green interior, tilt column, full guages, rear-window defroster, remote side view mirror, visor vanity mirror, under-hood and trunk lights, tinted glass, really quite amazing. Remarkably, everything worked except for the headlight doors.
This car had also led a tough life before I found it. There were dents and scrapes on the driveshaft tunnel from where the differential yoke had beaten against it- and a tire rub on the left frame rail- probably from a broken spring in the recent past. I had to shore up the floor of the trunk to help support the fuel tank.
1969 RS Convert ON THE ROAD AT LAST!
