I am currently thinking about purchasing a 69 camaro X-22. car is in primer so i don't know what is covered up. Floors are very solid. all parts for the car are there. A non original big block and 4 speed that run and work. 12 bolt posi. seats int need a little work. what would this car be worth? seems very solid. Disc power brakes. the guy says everything is for sale make him an offer. no documentation. clean title.

I too agree that the 69 camaro prices are very strong these days. I also think that being an ss and a big block car that you pay a premium, which is understandable because fewer of these cars were produced. There are also a lot phony cars being badged and sold as matching #s. The 69 camaro is a great style and highly sought after classic muscle car. As for as this one I am after I might offer the guy 6,000, and see what he says. thanks for the reply

Ballpark figure, 3K-10K, just depends on what's underneath the primer, and how many of the original parts are there.......

I agree with figman, but that's what is happening, now.
You're right, primer can hide a lot of bondo. feel around the quarter wheel well lips for bondo. Most camaros rust there, and a bondo fix is obvious. also tap to the rear of the front and rear wheelwells. Sheetmetal will have a "tinny" sound, and bondo will have a duller thud.

If it is rust free, it's worth a lot more than a bondo buggy, although any rust can be fixed with money.

If the replacement block is "period correct" it is worth more than, say, a truck 454.

A nicely restored non original X22 is probably worth 20 grand. Figure out what it will take to fix it, and then double it. Subtract that number from $20,000 and that's what the car is worth now.

thanks for the replies. This website is a fountain of knowledge and advice. Sometimes it is nice to have opinions from a non bias party. the owner had told me that the lower door corners were starting to get a little rust. Other than that some very minor surface rust on rear quarters which are original. The car is also equipped with the rs package. Were all x-22 cars ss and big block? what made the horse power difference between the 325 and 350 hp 396s?

All X22 were big block SS. (Not sure if there were any COPO X22, which would not be SS)
X22 could be RS or standard with Style Trim (some extra exterior chrome on wheel well openings and drip rails. Also chrome accents on tail lights and headlight bezel, if non-RS)

I think 325 and 350 are the same with the exception of the cam, and possibly carb jetting.
375 is:
different block casting (4 bolt mains)
higher compression (different heads)
Solid lifters
deep groove pulleys
8" balancer
aluminum intake
holly carb.
open breather (for non-cowl hood)
Chrome valve covers
