69 Camaro restoration in Saudi Arabia

Good day all,

I would like to introduce my 69 Camaro SS/RS restoration project in Saudi Arabia, I am appreciating and happy to share it here, also to see members suggestion, help, observation and advice.

Let's start, my car is 69 SS/RS Camaro and located in Saudi Arabia and I am going to restore it to original condition as much as I can.

Welcome Fahad! Looks like a good project!

Have you run the drivetrain numbers to confirm what you have? the SS option came with the special hood, but yours is not there.

Is there an interesting story on how the Camaro got to Saudi Arabia, then neglected?

Thanks Kevin.

Unfortunately the original drivetrain were replaced long time ago.
The current engine is 454 and the tranny is Saginaw.

Again unfortunately the car were crushed into wall during speed testing and the previous owner got the spare parts of 1st gen Camaros from the junkyard.

I would let you know the story asap.

Re: 69 Camaro restoration in Saudi Arabia

Hmm, the trim tag has been off the body. I would look very closely at the vin plate (top and bottom) and try to find the partial vins on the cowl.

Re: 69 Camaro restoration in Saudi Arabia

Congratulations on finding a 1st gen and welcome to Team Camaro!

For the car to be a true RS it would have to have back up lights below the bumper.

And it appears to have a 68 steering wheel also. Front seats look like they might be out of a 4th gen Firebird.

Car archaeology can be so much fun sometimes...

I see you've actually been a member since 2005. Never to late to start I say.

67 Camaro: 454/TH400/4.10 12 bolt. Lots of options: PS/PDB/PW, tilt, tach, gauges and more. K-K + 797-Z...
