I had no idea there were that many varieties of blue for C3s.

Bryar Blue is looking like the one for me. Can you tell me some more details about the paint and clear coat? Is it a stock color or a custom blend? Did you do anything special to prep it before painting?

Thanks,
John

Default 69 LeMans Blue LT1

I was the original owner of this 69 coupe It was the first "dealer built"
LT1 . I ordered the car from Clippinger Chevrolet in 1969, and about 2 weeks after ordering I was told that the LT1 wouldn't be available until
the 1970 model However, I could order the 350/350 engine and they would build it at the dealership into a LT1 by changing the cam, adding solid lifters and a bigger Holly. This was done and was covered by full factory warranty. Only one of two 69 Corvettes with LT1 engines documented.

I sold the car in 1979..it went through 4 other owners...and I bought the car back about 6 weeks ago. It's like driving a time machine
