Intro 69Z Owned the car for 35 years

Hello,
T.C.
I have always lerked on the forum to find out what i needed to know. About me, i have a 69Z, Burnish Brown, 57,000 original miles, second owner, I bought the car when i was 16 years old. Been through many stages, blew the 302 up twice, went to a 375hp 396 big block through high school. After high school I opened up an automotive shop, it went through its , what I call Ricky Racer stage. I put a 600hp sprint car motor in it, with Webber Carbs and a distributor less ING. Sway bars, subframe connectors, ect ect. All the things that de valued my car. Last time the car was on the road was 1988. I always stored the car indoors, last couple of years, I have been putting this car back to stock on a budget. (the car deserves more) but it is what it is.

I will post pics later, i am jumping to a question on something that i am very stumped on. In the bodyshop forum: thanks and any help would be appreciate, San Francisco Bay area, Go Giants and A's.

Thanks,
Josh

Thumbs up Re: Intro 69Z Owned the car for 35 years

Electric windows in a Z - that's sure not common

A couple of guys on here Dad's were TV Repair men - they have wicked tools sets, and can help fix some of that

Re: Intro 69Z Owned the car for 35 years

I have heard they made around 3,000 69 camaros with power windows. How rare do you think this is for a Z, also it came with tilt, deluxe interior, 8 grand tach, trunk light and a vanity mirror.

Thanks

Nice car. You can get a photo bucket account and post photos that way.
