Newbie with a burning question

Hi Everyone,

My husband and I are restoring my Camaro (finally). It's a 69 RS glacier blue with a factory painted dover white top. I have searched the web looking for another one but have been unsuccessful. We also go to as many car shows as we can and haven't located one out there either. Does anyone out there have a two tone car? It also has power disc brake, ac, power steering and deluxe houndstooth interior.

Hi Barbara, welcome to Team Camaro... Does the restoration mean you'll be hanging out with that mopar guy at Horses 2 Horsepower? Congratulations on getting married. Click on the link in my signature, you'll recognize my Camaro...

Here's a picture of a 53-50 car, I believe there were 5909 total 2-tone's sold in '69.


Here are the '69 2-tone combos;
53-50 Glacier Blue/Dover White
55-50 Azure Turquoise/Dover White
53-51 Glacier Blue/Dusk Blue
51-53 Dusk Blue/Glacier Blue
65-50 Olympic Gold/Dover White
61-63 Burnished Brown/Champagne

Welcome to TC Barbara. I have to say I like the 2-tone look.

Re: Newbie with a burning question

Hey Dennis- You are so funny.Yes, I'll be out there with that Mopar guy. Where did you get your info on how many two-tones were built? Here is a link to CRG that shows total production was 1% which would equate to less than 2500.

Where did you find that car? It's my car's twin.

Re: Newbie with a burning question

There was 53-50 car listed on Craig's List in the Atlanta, GA area toward the end of '08. The seller indicated that the it was a Florida car. I believe he wanted 22k for it. I think it had a 327, power steering, but no power brakes. I cannot recall if it was a column or console shift car.

One of the members here had posted the pic a while back and I remembered it... Here's a link to a CRG spread sheet http://www.camaros.org/pdf/options.pdf scroll to page 7 and look for "2-tone" and they report 5909 in '69... I'll see if someone from the CRG might know why the discrepancy. They don't make too many mistakes but maybe we cought them on one. If so, Kurt is good at making corrections...

I have Hot Aug Niles, Newark Days and H2HP on the calander, keep an eye out and come say hi...

Re: Newbie with a burning question

Thanks for the heads up.
Yes, I just corrected that. The 5909 is the correct #. The other % was generated from the db which can be problematic with low production options.
We've seen 40 two-tones.

Mike has one of the rarer ones - blue on blue is uncommon. 51-53 or 53-51?

I just saw that 69 Firebirds were available in two-tone with any bottom color!
