Original survivor ... Daytona Yellow ... Black sport stripes ... Original early 1969 327 CID V-8 ... Special ducted hood ... RARE ...
In a hobby full of restored and “over-restored” muscle cars, it is refreshing to see as honest an original survivor as this 1969 Camaro RS Convertible.
Finished in its eye-catching original color of Daytona Yellow with Black sport striping and convertible top, this gorgeous Camaro convertible is one of just 15,866 V-8 convertibles produced of the 243,085 Camaros produced in 1969. Repainted in the 1980s, its finish still shines nicely. Several rare options give the exterior of this convertible additional pop—including its special ducted hood, rear spoiler, rear fender louvers and special body-color front bumper—an option installed on just 12,650 1969 Camaros. Also distinctive are its optional Rally wheels and vacuum operated headlight covers with washers—a feature unique to Rally Sport models.
The original interior features Black bucket seats and a center console which houses the gear shift selector and a complete bank of gauges that will keep you informed about what is going on under the hood. Primary instrumentation also includes a clock and tachometer. You’ll also appreciate the convenience of its tilt steering column—another rare option—as well as its original color keyed front and rear floor mats. Additional distinction is provided by its RPO Z87 custom interior, which features special molded door panels, instrument panel wood-grain accents, bright pedal trim, a glove compartment light, and special insulation.
Under the hood you’ll find the original 210 HP 327 CID V-8 engine mated to a Powerglide automatic transmission, which was the standard V-8 engine for early 1969 models; later 1969 models featured the less powerful 307 CID V-8. Its optional variable ratio power steering makes cornering a breeze. Another rare option is its engine block heater. Having just over 100,000 miles, this Camaro runs and drives as well as it looks.
A few items of note are that the tachometer and voltmeter are not currently working, and the clock does not keep accurate time. In addition, the transmission has a small leak. The left headlight cover also has weak vacuum, and the driver’s door lock is not functioning. Imperfections in the finish do not detract from the overall appearance of this car. Included with sale is the original owner’s manual.
This virtually all original Camaro has been lovingly maintained and enjoyed by its most recent owner since 1991, and is ready to delight its next owner.
If a truly authentic muscle car with plenty of eye appeal is what you desire, this original 1969 Camaro RS Convertible is just the car for you!
