Very nice looking Camaro! What are the details? I have always liked the subtle yellows that the big 3 put on their cars, especially GM.

Thanks! Believe it or not, one family owned the car until I purchased it 3 yrs ago. The family that owned it owned a Chevrolet dealership in North Carolina. I have the POP and original window sticker. Itís loaded with AC, PS,PB, PW, and an automatic. Has the 350 / 250 engine. Itís one of the best driving chevyís Iíve owned.

Nice '69!!! I knew it was Butternut when I saw it. In 1969 my father bought a new Butternut Impala. It came with yellow steelies and hub caps though.

That's certainly a rare combination of options especially back in '69.
Beautiful presentation!

That is awesome. Love reading that you got the Magic Mirror finish. I love the old paperwork for some reason.

GREAT LOOKING CAMARO!
1969 is my favorite year. Bought a one owner 68 RS SS 396 4spd convertible in the early 80's and sold it to buy my 63. Like that butternut yellow. My mom had a 66 Caprice 396 that was butternut with a black vinyl top. Great looking car!

A few more pictures. Other than a replaced carpet, the interior is completely original which for a white interior is pretty cool. Original 350
Original interior
Original dash

Hi Larry!

Yes, I completely rebuilt it thanks to your education. Dom rebuilt the compressor. Blows real cold.

That sure is nice. One of the best GM color schemes of the era.
