This Chevrolet Camaro convertible is a stunning example of meticulous restoration with painstaking devotion to authenticity, correctness and originality. Ordered new in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, this example was cared for and garage kept by the original owner for over forty years. That first owner finally sold the car to a well-known first generation Camaro guru in Lakeland, Florida. This Camaro expert had sought this car out as the finest all original 69 Camaro convertible he could find so that he could restore it to Day One glory. Equipped with the numbers matching original Chevrolet 350 cid V8, original four speed transmission, this uniquely ordered Camaro is a convertible with air conditioning. It was delivered new in the very favoured colour of Rallye Green with a white power top and a Midnight Green interior. All of these details are confirmed in the cache of all original paperwork including the original dealership window sticker, Bill of Sale, Protect-O-Plate, owner's manuals, warranty cards with glovebox packet and dealer delivery checklist. Currently with only 74,818 original miles, this outstanding Camaro has seen fewer than 500 miles since the concours quality restoration. Amazingly, this car is an all original body panel example that has obviously seen nothing but great days in all of its 50 years. All mechanicals are original to the car but have been fully rebuilt as part of the restoration. The attention to detail is of the highest levels to be seen anywhere as evidenced by the pristine undercarriage, engine and engine bay. The detail fanaticism includes such things as correctly date coded Julian hose clamps, date coded factory original AR pump and other components right down to proper and exacting Schrader valve stems. The second owner, who performed the incredible restoration, had this to say; "I purchased this car from the original owner who garage kept it from new, I elected to restore this fine example to original condition when new. Countless hours of research, time and money were expended to ensure the correctness, finish and mechanical ability of this Camaro convertible are unsurpassed. This Camaro retains every original date coded, factory stamped and labelled part as when built new including hardware throughout with the exception of four items. 1) Carpet was replaced back to correct colour and materials (original tag sewn on new carpet). 2) Correct replacement convertible top. 3) Lower trim interior kick panel was replaced due to scuffing. 4) Trunk mat was replaced with correct reproduction. The detail of this car far exceeds the ability to list all, here are a few of the details. 1) Correct original numbers matching engine professionally rebuilt to factory specs. 2) Original four speed transmission inspected, serviced and correctly refinished. 3) Rear end inspected, serviced and finished. 4) Full brake system rebuilt and restored including date coded and original including drums, cylinders, date coded hoses, master cylinder with original cap and bailer. 5) Factory original air conditioning cleaned, refurbished, serviced and functional. 6) Cooling system restored and properly refinished..." Restored to the highest standard, this example is for the collector who seeks the Best of the Best!!
