1969 Chevrolet Camaro

HELLO, UP FOR AUCTION IS A EXTREMELY RARE 1969 CAMARO Z11 PACE CAR CONVERTIBLE WITH THE VERIFIED L78 HIGH PERFORMANCE 375 HP BIG BLOCK FACTORY OPTION. JERRY MACNEISH, RESPECTED CAMARO HISTORIAN, AUTHOR, OWNER OF CAMARO HIGH PERFORMANCE INC AND INDEPENDENT APPRAISER FOR BARRETT-JACKSON AUCTIONS HAS PERSONALLY EXAMINED AND APPRAISED THIS UNRESTORED GARAGE FIND TO DETERMINE THE AUTHENTICITY OF THIS TRUE L78 PACE CAR. THE UNRESTORED CONDITION OF THIS BODY, THOUGH NOT PRETTY, ALLOWED MR. MACNEISH AN UNEQUIVOCAL OPPORTUNITY TO FIND THE UNTOUCHED AND UNMOLESTED "TELLS" TO DETERMINE WITHOUT QUESTION THE ORIGINALITY OF THIS L78 BIG BLOCK Z11 PACE CAR 4SPD CONVERTIBLE CAMARO. THE PARTIALLY DISASSEMBLED AND UNRESTORED CONDITION ALLOWED HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE EVERYTHING CLEARLY BEFORE ANY RESTORATION WORK WAS PERFORMED. JERRY WAS VERY PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO ADD THIS RARE CAMARO TO HIS NATIONWIDE DATABASE, AS HE HAS FOUND ONLY 6 VERIFIED EXAMPLES OF L78 PACE CARS STILL IN EXISTENCE OUT OF THE SPECULATED THROUGH OTHER SOURCES, BUT NOT VERIFIABLE 100 PLUS L78 CARS EVER BUILT. AS THE MACNEISH APPRAISAL REPORT INDICATES THIS PACE CAR WAS ORDERED AS A PERFORMANCE ONLY CAR WITH THE L78 ENGINE, MUNCIE 4 SPD, MANUAL TOP, MANUAL STEERING, TILT WHEEL AND REAR SPOILER; ALONG WITH ALL OF THE STANDARD FEATURES INCLUDED IN THE SS/RS RALLY SPORT Z11 PACKAGE. A TRUE MUSCLECAR OF ITS TIME! THE NCRS SHIPPING DATA REPORT SHOWS THIS CAR TO HAVE BEEN ORDERED AND DELIVERED THROUGH REEDMAN CHEVROLET IN PHILADELPHIA, A VERY LARGE AND POPULAR REGIONAL MUSCLECAR DEALER OF SIGNIFICANT NOTORIETY IN THE 1960'S THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS SINCE 1954. THE PREVIOUS OWNER PURCHASED THE CAR IN THE EARLY 1970'S, PAINTED IT IN THE PSYCHEDELIC COLORS OF THAT ERA, ENJOYED AND STORED IT FOR 40 PLUS YEARS UNTIL HE DECIDED TO BEGIN TO REFURBISH IT. THE DRIVETRAIN WAS REMOVED AND LOST OVER THE DECADES AS WAS MUCH OF THE INTERIOR. THE TITLE INDICATES VERY LOW ORIGINAL MILEAGE ON THE CAR OF 56,980 MILES ADDING TO THE DESIRABILITY OF RESTORING THIS ICONIC MUSCLECAR. THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A FULL RESTORATION PROJECT CAR. HOWEVER, THE FIREWALL, A PILLARS AND REAR FRAME RAILS APPEAR SOLID. THE DOCUMENTED PEDIGREE OF THIS PROJECT CAR WILL REWARD YOU WITH A PHENOMENAL UPSIDE POTENTIAL, WITH THE ADDED BONUS OF KNOWING THAT YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO RESTORE IT TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS WITH GREAT CONFIDENCE AS TO ITS PROVENANCE AND ORIGINALITY AS AN L78 PACE CAR. THE COMPONENTS TO RESTORE THIS CAR ARE READILY AVAILABLE AND ITS WORTH NOTING THAT THE COST TO RESTORE THIS RARE CAR IS SIMILAR TO WHAT IT MIGHT COST FOR ANY 1969 CAMARO CONVERTIBLE. AS THE DEFINITIVE EXPERT OF EARLY CAMAROS, JERRY MACNEISH ESTIMATES A RESTORED VALUE OF $125,000 TO $150,000 FOR THIS CAR WITH A PERIOD CORRECT L78 DRIVETRAIN. NADA GUIDES ALSO CLAIMS A SIX FIGURE VALUE FOR A RESTORED L78 PACE CAR. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO REVIEW THE PICS AND THE 2 REPORTS. I HAVE HIDDEN THE VIN AND IDENTIFIERS FROM THIS AUCTION FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE BUYER AND HIS RESTORATION CHOICES. HOWEVER, ALL OF THE DOCUMENTS ARE NUMBERS MATCHING WITH ORIGINAL SIGNATURES INCLUDING THE CLEAN TITLE FOR THIS CAR.
