69 Convertible Rebirth

Hello All,

I am going to use this as my rebuild thread. I am currently working on a 57 2dr post so this project will be on the back burner since I'm about a third of the way through the 57.

it appears that all the "outside" sheet metal is original and the rust has been fixed or the panels were replaced. It was repainted and then stored for the last five or so years. It is a manual top with no interior or drivetrain. 10 bolt rear end. That is the good. See the next post for the BAD!!!!

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

OK now the BAD! I'm not sure if being negative and talking ill about past work is taboo but PLEASE if you let anyone do the following work to your Camaro STOP THEM!!!!! First will be a new floor and braces to fix this:

This is taken from the rear passenger wheel facing forward, and yes that is a bed rails or multiple angel iron used for support and some sort of square tube for a make shift subframe connector, or should I say brace connectors. I'm not sure why the rocker is cut up.

Same are looking back

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

And the carnage continues to the trunk, Do you notice that the frame rail are cut off and do not connect to anything, and the Frankenstein bracket covering the bumper holes

I did not get a photo of the wheel wells or the hack job that covered the shock towers.

I'm not sure what my option is if fix the inner tail pan? I would hate to have to cut out the rear pain pan to fix it.

I will for sure need a complete new trunk also

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

And to the front:
I am not sure who was trying to put a 2nd gen sub-frame in but they did not get it to fit

overall I'm happy and since I can do the work myself I think I'm ahead of the game.

I already have another sub frame so that problem is solved.

Thanks for looking and I'll be updating in a couple of months, but will most likely have a bunch of questions along the way.

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

Some of the worst work I have ever seen. Have to wonder what is lurking under that paint.

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

I know the fenders and hood are new and the doors seem solid I'm really only worried about the quarters which seem ok so far

Whoever did that should have their tools taken away.

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

Jason, Did you buy the car sight unseen ? Like Don said I'd be very
concerned with what might be hiding under that shinny paint. Good luck
with the rebuild.

Re: 69 Convertible Rebirth

I saw it before I got it I'm not worried to much about the paint since I will most likely repainted it. I was comfortable with the price and I've restored cars before.
