69 x55 numbers matching

Found an X55 numbers matching 350 4-speed SS car. Had a frame on resto approx 20 yrs ago and driven 5-6k miles since. Was not complete nut/bolt but nicely done and well kept. Shows no bad patch or metal work. Paint is 8 out of 10. Engine was rebuilt stock. Interior is clean with some signs of its age, but nothing out of sorts.

What is a good price range to be in for this car?

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

Without pictures its hard to say. What color inside & out? Standard or deluxe interior? A/C? Need more info or better yet pictures. 20 year old restoration COULD mean its going to be due for some work.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

If it's being advertised as "numbers matching", you need to get the numbers! Good, high resolution pictures of the VIN, the trim tag, the engine pad, etc...

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

The one good thing about an older resto is if any shoddy body work was done, it very likely would be rearing it's ugly head by now.

I'd guess 40-45K assuming it is indeed the original engine/drivetrain.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

Tried to upload pic of engine, but ran out of upload space!!

In any case, it looks fairly stock, not an A/C car. I am going to have a resto shop nearby look it over as well to verify everything.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

Looks like it's missing the cowl-hood seal or else it's painted silver !? Brake booster and MC cap painted black. Silver manifolds. Would need some tidying up for correct appearance. The cowl hood and induction system are most likely not original, but would add some value if functional. Rally stripes were added of course and not correct.

My estimate above is probably high by about 5K or more....until we see more pics.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

I found the car on CL. His asking price is a good starting point. As always never buy
without a personal inspection. Also verify the numbers matching claim if it's important
to you. Many don't care but I'd hate to see you buy thinking it's a 350 when it's a 307.
Not saying it is but you never know if you don't check.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

I see a couple more pics have been added in the link above of the cowl tag and engine pad stamp. Both look genuine in my opinion, although it would be nice to see the rivets on the tag. Late build 69, factory installed spoilers (D80), Cortez Silver and black standard interior. HA suffix code is L48 (350, 300HP) with manual trans. Again, the stamp looks legit and date code lines up with the car build date. The partial VIN (to confirm matching numbers) is located down below by the oil filter and often times hard to see. 1967-69 Camaro Drivetrain Decoding

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

It's a really nice looking car! In Colorado (California Annex) that is $40K car. Most other places (reality) that is a $35K car. Let us know how negotiations go! Good Luck!

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

You said in another post he was at $37,500 firm.
If the car checks out in person I think that price is in line.
The engine stamping is legit. The tag is legit. You got an SS350 with spoilers.
Of course, the rest of the numbers on the drive train should be confirmed and the quality of the body. If that all checks out I think its worth that much for sure.

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

Since the OP has decided to move on, here's the car in question...https://frederick.craigslist.org/cto...036833707.html

Quite deceiving as it turns out to be a 3spd manual trans. Certainly knocks the value down considerably and no doubt much more difficult to sell. For 69, that would be a Muncie 3spd though...

Re: 69 x55 numbers matching

First off, owner was not easy to work with. One of these "ive owned 100 camaros" guy and I know what I have and was firm at $37.5k Owned car for 15 yrs, but had zero docs. The 20 yr old on frame-on resto shows its age. Car is pretty solid but needs a good freshen up. For someone who wants a possibly original car with many org parts (50 yr old suspension, etc) then this might be for you. I have decided I'd like a good car with some modern updates.
