Only Two Owners: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro

Finished in LeMans Blue, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro has only been owned by two people during its entire life. It is now looking for a new home and a third owner, and it appears to be a solid and honest car that shows plenty of promise. The Camaro is located in Wynnewood, Oklahoma, and is listed for sale here on eBay. Healthy bidding has pushed to price along to $18,800, although the reserve hasn’t been met.

The photos that the owner supplies of the Camaro are a bit frustrating because they really don’t show the car in enough detail to ascertain just how solid and rust-free the vehicle actually is. However, the owner does state that the Camaro has been kept in a garage for its entire life, which does give us some cause for optimism. The body shows a number of dings and scrapes, but none of these appear to be severe. The owner doesn’t mention any issues with rust, but he does seem to be very open to interested potential buyers undertaking a personal inspection of the car. That is usually a pretty positive sign in cases like this.

The condition of the Camaro’s interior is in keeping with the rest of the car, meaning that it is clean and serviceable, but isn’t immaculate. The seats are upholstered in white leather, and these, along with the dash and pad, appear to be in really nice condition. Some of the interior plastic trim is exhibiting the sort of discoloring that can afflict white trim over the years, but it is possible that the door trims could respond well to a professional clean. The carpet is also looking faded, but if the next owner is looking for a Camaro survivor with a bit of character, then this is a car that has that in spades.

There are no photos of the Camaro’s engine, but what we do know is that it is powered by the 307ci V8. This should be producing 200hp, which is then sent to the rear wheels via a 3-speed manual transmission. The car has recently received a new clutch and new brakes and is claimed to have a genuine 42,303 miles on the odometer. The owner doesn’t indicate whether they hold any evidence to back that claim, but if this is accurate and the car has been treated with respect, then it should be mechanically solid.

This 1969 Camaro is an interesting car because, on the surface, it has all of the hallmarks of an original survivor. Of course, only a personal inspection will be able to confirm this, but if it is, then it is also a car that oozes character. If you inspected this car and did find it to be an original survivor, would you buy it and restore it, or would you leave it exactly as it is?

    Those seats aren’t leather. Also, the trim on the doors looks fine, it’s the door panels that are discolored.

      I think he says “door trims” just to get everyone ticked off – Many guys here have told him they are door panels , but he still says “trims”

    one of my best buds in high school drove a same color ’69 307 like this except automatic and front bench seat and rear fold out “bed.” what an option for a teenager’s car that he put to consistent use in parking lots here and there.

    one of the first things he did was install 327 badges and dual exhaust. at least it sounded the part

    This car has a 6 cylinder vin number…owner is confused the only 6 cylinder motors available were inline 6’s not “V6” and a 307 motor is a V8 motor.

    I don’t see “307” markings on the fenders, so I think Paul is right…betcha it’s a 6…and I betcha this car is destine to become a Z clone…

    Considering all that has been said here about this car up to this point, sounds like the seller’s warning of “Caveat Emptor” is pretty appropriate.

    Great looking unmolested 1969. Add A/C and clean it real good and drive it.

      Note the four dash vents: The car already has A/C…

    The carpet is worn through at 42,000 miles? My 70 Chevelle has 73,000 miles and my original carpet doesn’t look anything like that bad. A dealer is selling the car and he doesn’t know the difference in a 230 six cylinder and a 307 V8 or 6, as he says?!?!, plus there are no engine shots?!?! But you are still buying a pretty nice (hopefully) 69 Camaro body. Caveat emptor I reckon.

    The grill is a replacement.

    Would be a fun car with the small block and three speed!! I just can’t amagine the reserve being much higher for a base Carmaro with a three speed!!

    Like the blue color, especially on a ’69 Camaro. I always liked black interiors despite living in a warm climate, white never interested me for whatever reason.
    Go along with the few above comments…..three speed floor shift with a useable small block would make it a real gem to cruise the coast, no rats or LS swaps.

    Pretty “stagie” photo’s…..looks like a retso was done at some point. Not to far up the road from Dallas but I’m picking up a rotisserie car that stalled this Sunday weekend along with a salvage yard rescue on Saturday.

    Didn’t that white side stripe have a break in it where the fender engine size emblem would be? Meaning the emblem would be mounted on the car color not with the stripe running under it?
