No, what you have is a 1969 with some non-original parts.

Okay, lots of bread on the water and ill be a mullet and jump

I always heard and you guys seem to back it up no factory Lt1s were sold 1969 model,

But the cat who says he has one didnt say it was factory and the parts are there to build a fake and a fake would be desirable not to purists but some fans,

Of course if he says its factory built lets see the documentation and providence if none then hand him his ***....

Ps,
I think you are being ed
the person who posted that, new member, this is his only post and he misspelled "corvette" in his screen name

I have a print of starry night, cant afford the real deal and its not for sale at any price anyway...

I knew what fake meant, would you rather me call it a tribute, i think that's what posers building racer look cars that will never see a track call them...

Fake in this case is only bad if he tries to pull a scam, admitting its a fake or tribute might be cheesy to some but doesnt hurt anyone...

I just read the article in the Car Life magazine and I was trying to get my hands on a copy of the Bizzoco book but it is quite expensive. There has been mention of Mule cars which I assume are test cars. Does anyone have any further information on how these cars might be identified? The numbers on the block have been XXXXX'd out and as far as I can tell that would be the only difference, aside from the engine, that might help identify the car.
.....my uncle has one too!!! Looks like both test mule '69 LT-1s have been found!!! I'm going to help him get it back on the road then I'm driving it to Barrett-Jackson next year for him. Will keep everyone posted.

Same thing I have in 1969 Stingray L46 but is not an LT1. I think the only difference between the two was LT1 has aluminium heads were the other car has camel hump steel heads.
Also the LT1 came with a Holley carb and L46 350-350 came with the Rochester. The rest is the same, but I do know that car is worth way over 50,000 and I only paid 10,000.

LT-1's had iron heads. The biggest difference was the LT-1 had a solid lifter cam.

The rest is the same, but I do know that car is worth way over 50,000 and I only paid 10,000.
What car are you talking about?

I have a '69 L-46 and always assumed the LT1 style hood was aftermarket. I have an old B&W photo of the car from 1978 and it was on there then.
Does anybody know if you could order a hood like that for the L-46 from the factory when new? Just curious.

You could not order it from the factory without a COPO. You could go to any Chevrolet parts dealer and purchase one over the counter or get a used one from any Corvette salvage yard..

Default from:Corvette a piece of the action .By the staff of Automobile Quartely magazine .

Not a bad book , has lots of facts from GM and with an introduction from William L Mitchell . Most of the Book is written by Allan Girdler.

Here he is writing about a test the Magazine he was working for , back in the day, was going to do on all models of the 69 Corvette, Starts with them trying to find the base model 3 speed











It also may be what Kid Vettes post #19 is talking about

There were no real 69 LT-1 cars. Maybe you’re thinking of the two (?) 69 ZL-1 cars which were aluminum block 427’s.
