Re: What is a 69 camaro L 78 project car worth

Without it's original drivetrain, it's just another Camaro. X66 trim tag (if it's real and hasn't been replaced) will help the value some, but not terribly. Hard to put a value on it without pictures, but I would say it is worth the sum of it's parts.

Experience...... It's what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.

How are you able to prove it's an L78 w/o the motor? Does it have original paperwork?

Sounds like you want to reunite a big block with a body that may once have had a different big block in it. Why?

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: What is a 69 camaro L 78 project car worth

Is there a way to tell? I've got a69 SS 396 x66 car too that my father inlaw restored. He stuck a l78 396 motor in it but now I'm curious about what hp396 really came in the car. Had a 327 and Z28 badges on it when he bought it back in 71. When he started the restore in 2016 the numbers came back as a 396 ss car so that's what he built it back to. Until I read this post I assumed all X66 cars were L78 but now I'm thinking not

Nope. X66 was any 396 (and a few COPOs) without Style trim Group.

From the description the only thing worth buying is the 12 Bolt.

Gonna take way more cash to restore than it will ever be worth. IMHO

Re: What is a 69 camaro L 78 project car worth

I saw this same post on the 67-69 Camaro owners page. I think you should get a better body Cliff. Pass on this one, you stated the guy wants an arm and a leg, just because it has a X6 on the trunk divider. That alone should not be the driving force to buy this car. Get a better body and put your drive train in that and drive it like you stole it!
