I thought I'd start a build thread for my 69. I bought it in 1995 incomplete and in pieces for $700. It originally had a 307 W/PG which was missing. The guy I bought it from did some nice work & some real crap work on it. It pretty much sat untouched in my garage for 10-12 years (I got married in 1996) After two moves I started working on it. Here is a photo of it at our second house pretty much the way I bought it.

Car background info: My brother bought it from the original owner, we started to disassemble it, he sold it to his neighbor. His neighbor was moving out of state & I was going to buy his 64 1/2 Mustang. I was at his house with trailer & asked what he was going to do with the Camaro & he said it was for sale for the same price as the Mustang. I told him I'll take the Camaro instead. The Camaro is a 307 Powerglide, no spoiler & very little chrome optioned car. I does have a center console. Four wheel drum, 10 bolt open, Glacier Blue with dark blue standard interior.

While the frame was off I started to work on the fire wall. I removed the wiper motor & noticed a small hole onder it. Well after removing some bondo, a small hole turned into a rather large one. I decided to patch rather than replace the whole fire wall. The hard part was welding the patch inside the cowl to make it water tight again.

Your story began one year before and $1,000 less than my '69. :) Looking forward to seeing another one come back to life! Have fun and enjoy the ride... :beers:
