Tim,
I would suggest getting the cowl tag numbers from him and post them in the tag team section. Have you looked at collectorcartrader.com on the net? There is always something going on there. I would think with 10k you should be able to find something.

Good luck

Yes I have been searching traderonline.com every day. However I thought this one looked quite nice. Oh, and I havent yet seen anything as nice looking on traderonline.com as this eBay one.

For $9000, I would keep looking. Personally, I hate when people paint the Z28 stripes on an SS hood. It doesn't have power brakes so it may be 4 wheel drum. But the biggest thing to look for is the way the body was done and you can't do that with pictures. You have to go see a car in person to check the quarter panels to see if they're skins or full quarters or full of bondo. There's a lot of nice cars in CA, so I would take your time and find one you can look at in person.

If you look close at the interior pic, you can see the console is missing the shifter plate. It also looks like the car has the wrong brake pedal too. It's for manual shift, not auto.

I looked at it again, it looks like a 67 console. I'd pass on this car. No telling what else is wrong too.

Tim,
Be careful, you've got the fever real bad. There has been a lot of good advice posted here. There is a 69 6cyl car listed for $1300. here in my neck of the woods (Baltimore,MD). Also look at cars.com lot of good posting there.

Just some observations....

No pic's are clear enough to get any detail and since this car is photo'd in a junkyard it brings more questions to mind. Lets start with the '67 console... Looking back at the Z11 that DL posted about overseas, the first pic's looked real good and when he went to look at the car, well the rest of his pic's tell the story http://hobbystage.net/camaro/camaro_crew/

It's been re-listed, maybe one of the Texas boys has seen it or knows more about it and will pipe up!!

I agree you have the fever bad!! There's always a Camaro or two popping up around your area. When I was looking Redding had a car or two listed every month. Chico being a college town there's got to be Camaros running around!! StevoCamaro where are you??? If Stevo ever gets back online I bet he'd have you rolling in no time!!

Is it just me or is that car leaning badly to the passenger side? Look closely at the photo of the front end on the lower portion of the page. The paint looks nice but I'll bet htis car was incorrecly pieced together. Who knows what other rigging the current owner did.

Looks like there is a major problem with the suspension (like maybe in need of total replacement) and a host of other problems as well. I would pass on this one unless he is willing to give it up for very low $ (like maybe $5,000).

The dash looks pieced together also. The Rosewood insert is by the wiper knob indicating a deluxe interior. The Rosewood is missing from the glove box and ash tray side of the dash. That is not a '69 console. That is a brake pedal for a manual trans car in an automatic car. It is smaller because the clutch pedal should be next to it. The master cylinder does not look right also for an SS, but it is too shaded for me to see it well.

Man......you guys are picky
.

Seriously though thanks for the advice.

Also, I am not interested in having a "correct" car. I plan on doing plenty of customization myself. So originality or matching numbers etc are not a top priority for me. A clean solid car that is mostly all there is important.

I would pass on this car for 9k for the above reasons. Also the dash is for an AC car and I don't see any of the AC stuff under the hood. Plus So Cal is much closer than Texas and I think you could find a better deal closer. Heck I bought my 69 in may of 2k just north of you(Yreka) for $9750 and it came with a fresh BBC drivetrain. Keep you eyes peeled and don't forget local papers like nickelads becuase they cover a lot of ground too (AZ-WA). That is where I found mine. They are online at www.classifieds.net. Good Luck


EDIT: oops they moved: www.nickelads.com

I am from berkeley ca, which isn't to far from where you are, I would DEFINITLY pass on that one, it is real far, not that great, and priced to high, and it definetly looks pieced together, the back wheels look really bad with those tires, You can find a better one for nine grand, that one looks like maybe 6500 at the most, definitly wait till you find that right one

This is the last e-mail I got from the guy.
And I dont know why you guys are so worked up over the wrong year console, I dont see the big deal there, easy fix.

"THE CAR HAS HAD SOME PATCH PANELS ON THE QUARTERS. WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR IT
WAS IN PRIMER. THERE WAS NO RUST ON IT EXCEPT ON THE DRIVERS ROCKER. THAT
HAS BEEN FIXED. IT WAS SHOT WITH PPG PAINT (TANGERINE ORANGE) AFTER BEING
PRIMED AND DRY BLOCKED 3 TIMES TO ENSURE STRAIGHTNESS. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH
THE CAR IS THAT IT HAS SAT FOR TOO LONG AND HASNT BEEN RUN. WE HAVE A
MECHANIC WORKING THE CARB RIGHT NOW. EVERYTHING ON THE CAR WORKS. IT HAS A
1969 350 WHICH CAME OUT OF A NOVA THAT HAD BEEN WRECKED. THE TRANNY CAME OUT
OF THE SAME CAR, BOTH HAVE BEEN REBUILT AND DONT HAVE 500 MILES ON EITHER.
IT HAS THE ORIGINAL POSI-TRAC REAR-END WITH 373'S. THE SUSPENSION ON THE
FRONT IS FINE AND THE REAR HAS ADJUSTABLE AIR SHOCKS. BRAKES ARE FINE ON IT
ALSO. OH YEA, THE CAR IS SET UP FOR AC BUT THERE IS NO AC ON THE MOTOR."

Here is what I think......

To me it looks like a clean solid body and mostly complete and running good. And that is what I am looking for, like I said above. But you guys think he is asking too much? I havent seen anything that nice looking for $6500.

Tim - you said he wanted $9000 for it... Not $6500!!! It went to about $7000 on eBay and didn't sell!! You don't know the seller from Adam!! You came here asking advice, no one is snowing you and running over to buy the car as we speak. The console is no big deal (just a querk that comes from being a camaro freak) and is a bonus if you buy the car because you can clean it up and sell it to get some of your money back.

Nobody here has anything to loose but you, and these guys know that!! Are you ready for a road trip? Just gonna have it shipped to you at the cost of about $800 or so?

This one just has the look of a bad deal... His e-mail to you ads to that with "it doesn't run because it sat so long" and "patch panels"

It's your money!!

Texarkana is about 3.5 hours from Dallas where most of us Texans on here live.

However, I will be in Longview next week on business and "may" be able to go look at it for you.

I can't guarantee I'll be able to get up there because I will have some associates with me that may not want to drive the extra hour up there and the extra hour back.

You need to tell me exactly what you would want me to look for.

E-mail me if you’re interested.
