Re: 69 Camaro Headed to San Diego
Thanks for the welcome guys. Some additional details - Rhode Island car, purchased from my wife's family. If you want to take a guess, I suppose I will reveal the price. Not a fantastic deal, but I think fair.
Numbers matching, motorized top, TH350 transmission, power drum all the way around, original black interior (no tears but worn and missing headrests), 10 bolt rear end, dual exhaust, and rally wheels (no center caps). Runs and drives, though left rear shock seems blown. Drove it form RI to western NY.
Nothing particularly special or unique, but should be a nice driver and very original, which is how I plan on keeping it. No plan for a tribute.
No rust or rot on quarter panels or frame. Not driven in winter and a garaged, secondary car for most of its life. No original Bill of Sale, but lots of paperwork. Wife's aunt has had it since 1974.
In terms of repairs/restoration, I am starting with the leaking top (Robbins or convertible top guys), refurbishing the dash pad (Knoch or Just Dashes), replacing the carpet (Knoch or ACC), refurbishing the rally wheels, getting center caps, tuning/cleaning the motor, rear shocks, and address some minor surface rust, and battery issue.
No major overhaul planned at this point. Just want to start driving and enjoying it.
I have been using the forums to determine how to source the repair parts. That is how I have narrowed the options above. Feedback would always be great, so I have decided to join and post.
