anyone seen this 69 camaro in person ?????
i know this is a long shot but im flying to texas this week to pic up this 69 camaro 1962291 (that he is holding for me)

its a hell of a deal and i cant figure out why its been on here for 5 months.
i left a deposit and he is holding the car but i was just curious if anyone seen it in person ???

maybe its because CASH only and no TRADES but still 5 months is a long time.

5k for a transmission rebuild?
I know I'm gonna get ripped for this, but I'm just being honest. That's the ugliest Camaro I've ever seen and it's a 6cyl. Sorry no harm intended jmo.

sirswapsalot 01-19-2011 01:00 PM

the 5000 was for everything, tranny, brakes, front end, u joints, labor, i know still a little high,

but the reason im looking at it is because its all original and has not had a 100 owners or a 100 motors put in it. thats hard to find on a 69 camaro at that price. (anywhere)

maybe it being a 6cyl is why no one bought it, but still 5 months is a long time to be on here, thats why i was hopen someone seen it in person.

kinda scary flying a couple state away on just pics.

by the way no harm taken, everyone has there own opinion. thanks for your 2 cents. :D

$5k for a trans rebuild, did they stuff a Jericho behind that screaming 6 cylinder :?: :lol:
If its been on that long either they are not disclosing everything about the car or its just plain overpriced.
If you do go down to see the car pay close attention to the body mounts and bushings on the front subframe, look under the battery tray and at the radiator support bottom for heavy corrosion. I noticed in one of the pics it looks like the quarter panel to rear filler panel (above the trunk to the right) is smoothed over, there should be a seam there. Check in the trunk where the rear shock mounts come through and the rear frame rails for extensive rust. Front floor boards are also notorious for rotting out. Look closely around the front and rear window lower channels.
You can buy some nice small block powered (non matching #'s) cars for around $15K if you look hard enough.

Don't let me change your mind. If it's what you want buy it. I'm the oddball on here (and most other places too) anyway.

in the link to the pic of rr qp why does that not look right

dragonmaster093 01-19-2011 04:43 PM

it did look like mught be starting to push rust out by rear widow moulding
and to me it dont seem right but normaly seat belts same color as interior in this case they should be dark green like seat those apear to be harvest gold so the car may not be as seller says so in my opinion at that price i would run the other way

having second thoughts now, glad i put it on here, thanks for all you guy`s help and opinion`s.
really pointed alot out that i might have overlooked.

TheYellaBrick 01-19-2011 08:01 PM

Minor issue, but belts are green just sunfaded...

As the ad says 5k for all that work, parts/labor adds up at full tilt retail and a high shop rate.

IMHO; Overall it's a 6cyl/69 Camaro that's been driven not stored, nor REstored. 11K is a pretty high number though.

Like the guys said, Can't really tell until you get up close and personal. If it is a never been wrecked, factory paint, ZERO rust, no plastic filler car, it could be worth the 11k as a very solid base for something more aggressive.

Still might be worth checking out

cepx111 01-19-2011 11:14 PM

I'd say 11K is a bit high for a six banger but if he's willing to negoiate, you never know. A asking price is just that.

His other ad is a real catch, # 1936591

It has a 740 HP 11-1 compression 427 fed by a 750 double pumper, yeah ok.

sirswapsalot 01-20-2011 02:38 AM

ha ha ha ya i seen that, did u also see the price ?

curtisreed 01-20-2011 04:59 AM

Personally I don't think he is misrepresenting anything as a means of ripping anyone off. It says he is assisting a friends widow to sell. If I were in the market for a car like this I would go look at it in a heartbeat.

Charlie, the 427 he said is 11.94. Might be a little happy on the dyno but not to over the top.

The silver Nova is a little high but if I owned them I would tell anyone looking that they are not making any more of them so if it is too high they are not the cars for you.


sirswapsalot 01-20-2011 11:14 AM

i just offered 8500 cash, let u know what happend :shock:

now i know why its been on there 5 months, i had him send me pics, they tried to cover so much shit up its not even funny, not only is pass 1/4 hung crooked but they even welded the trunk pan in BACKWARDS. the filler neck part they put by the back seat, under neath is bad and u can see all the sanding marks (looks like 80 in the puddy.

at least he was honest with the pics and i didnt fly 750 mi 4 nothing..
i passed
