Just picked up a 1969 Camaro RS SS Convertible Original Paint, Burgandy with Factory Red Stripe, L48, Special Order ZL2 Hood, D80. This car was a Lucas Oil sweepstakes in 1969. Will be posting pics soon, going to keep it all original and will not be restored.

:grin2:

Lucas Oil, or Standard Oil Company? Because we have discussed a Standard Oil Company sweepstakes car before and it should be in the data base. Same car?

Looks like he upgraded the trans to a Powerglide. Ironically, that gave him the 10-bolt....

Nice car!
Kurt, your are right, it was supposed to be a 4-Speed, but owner wife wanted a automatic, bummer.
So L48 HE coded on Block and POP.

Could have been worse. He could have opted for the Kingswood Estate Wagon. Feelin Groovy yet?

09A car with a cowl hood, also mentioned in letter.
I guess it must have been added by the dealer (?)

Why must it have been added by the dealer on a 09A 1969 car, did they discontinue the ducted hood ZL2?

Also, the POP is dated 9/1/69, more than 2 weeks prior to delivery. Is that normal or a misprint?

Some where in the Hotrod story it says the contest winner was driving a 1970 Monte Carlo, but he won the car prior to June 27, 1969. Misplaced memory or was the Monte Carlo released early?
