Great to be a part of this forum finally. Picked up my dream car over the weekend. 69 SS clone with a 327. Metallic burgundy although not my favorite is very clean. I can live with it for some time until I can paint it. Can't believe I finally have one. Car did have a frame off restoration sometime in the recent past but still needs some things like A/C (live in southern California), some kind of tranny upgrades for highway, maybe some aftermarket seats (I'm 6'5") and some suspension work (lower front end with some coil overs). Overall I am very happy with the purchase.

Congrats, you picked the best year!

I remember the excitement when I first got my 69 Camaro home. Over 15 years have gone by and it still puts a smile on my face.

Congrats and welcome.
I have a 6’8” son and a 6’6” son. I trial fit some interior combinations to see if i can fit them. The seats cant be higher than stock. I need 3” extenders. The console has to go. Neither of them cared about a tilt wheel. Two inch extenders are in the catalogues. You may want to try that first.

I have some 2 inch extenders you can have for the shipping costs. I posted them in the classified section. I upgraded to 4" extensions and like them better due to the added leg room. I'd recommend the 4" extension for the height of your sons

Thinking about going the cortez silver route with the same black stripes would be ideal or maybe white with black stripes.

69 the best year. 67 was 1st and the 68 was practice to make the 69 Perfect.

I really like the Burgundy and Black Stripe

Congrats! If you don't mind me asking, where did you find it? Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, forum classifieds? Everything I have been finding lately is at dealerships.

I found it on the Hemmings website. It was at a Glendale, CA private car collectors warehouse. He said he was selling it to make room for other vehicles.
