Dusk Blue Survivor: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

The seller of this 1969 Chevy Camaro mentions how he likes to build restomods out of popular muscle cars, and given this Camaro’s high state of preservation and original features, he just doesn’t use this one as much as the others. I’m just grateful an impressive survivor like this wasn’t torn up to build a modern version of a historic car, and bidders seem to agree: it’s currently bid to over $36K here on eBay.

Wearing a great color of Dusk Blue with a non-original white stripe, the Camaro presents as an honest survivor with nicely weathered paint. It’s a desirable 4-speed / 396 car with low miles, recorded as just a tick over 70K. Aside from the stripe and some updates to the interior, the Camaro remains largely unmodified and came from a longtime owner in Arizona, the climate of which certainly helped this example remain in nearly rust-free condition.

The seller notes a dime-sized rust spot in the driver’s floorboard, which will hopefully be fixed on a car as solid as this. The seller notes new seat covers and carpeting in the cabin; unfortunately, the oil pressure gauge quit working right after the new carpets were installed. The seller notes a large history file will accompany the car, which includes pictures from when it was delivered new to its first owner.

The seller notes that the drivetrain remains numbers matching and is unmodified. Even recent maintenance work has focused solely on fixes only where needed as opposed to unnecessary tweaks. This includes “…new steering components were replaced including brake lines, body bushing, steering linkage, ball joints, wheel cylinders, shocks, springs.” I’m grateful a Camaro that has survived in such a high state of preservation isn’t going to be resto-modded, and suspect this one will fetch a high number when the auction closes.

    this is the kind of car you want to buy – dry, basically unmolested..this particular car is well equipped and looks like I remember them to look back in the day: Chevy 14″ magnums and flat hoods with the vents. Cool car.

    yea 71fx and this ones all business, no p/s or a/c. What a blast to take this to the car cruises just as is with the worn paint, Maybe a duel or 2 with a fart can rice rocket at a Light. This is what defines an American muscle car. I bet she sounds sweet with those glasspacks. Somebodys getting a dream car. Good luck!!!

    Blue chip muscle.Drive as is,or restore as you go.The demand for a Big Block 69 R/S with a 4 speed ,in a desireable color,will never go away.

    Very nice car. I would just buy it, drive it, and love on it over time. Anything needing replacing would be OEM, elbow grease and gentle care.
    New owner>>> “do not paint the car”.
    214 area code… very near me… I would buy it but cannot for reasons of health.
    Meaning “my wife is sick of all my project cars”. We are down to, “one comes, one leaves”.

    Really, really, really nice. This is the best vinyl top design ever on one of the iconic (!) pony cars of all time. 396 & 4 speed – iconic (!!) numbers you’ll never forget.

    Did I mention blue is my favorite color?

      IIRC, dusk blue was a 1969-only color, and could be had on any Chevy model that year. I had an opportunity not long ago to bid on a dusk 1969 Corvair convertible. Very unique color that holds up well with today’s utilitarian whites, platinum, black and brown sedans.

    It may no be modified, but this poor baby needs a ton of bodywork to bring it back to it’s former glory days. Just saying, as a guy who’s knee deep in a 69 Camaro SS restoration.

    Back in 69/70 I worked with a guy that had one much like this one mechanically. Gray body, black vinyl top and interior. Absolute animal on the strip, wallowed like a pig on road courses.
    This was the time when gas and performance was ‘cheap’ and available off the new car dealer showroom.

    This Camaro is a Time Warp, absolutely repair as little as necessary and don’t lose that vintage vibe it has going.
    Kinda like a vintage Les Paul or Stratocaster guitar, just don’t mess with it ever.
    As far as the engine never being modded, well, not everybody was a drag race nut, although it seems slightly unusual to me to see a 4 speed big block Camaro unmolested, which is good.
