No Reserve 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 350 Clone

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

Third-year Chevy Camaro sales would be brisk at nearly one-quarter million units. That initial supply has made them popular with folks looking to clone base models into SS or Z28 look-a-likes. The seller’s car started out life with an inline-six under the hood but was later transformed into an SS 350. A single-owner car for the past 20 years, this Camaro has its share of dents and dings but runs well. The auto is available in Edgar, Wisconsin, and here on eBay where the no reserve auction sits at $21,900.

As the seller says, his car looks good from ten feet, but as you get closer you can see the flaws in the body and yellow paint. It was repainted by an amateur before he took possession two decades ago, so it’s certainly not show-quality. We’re told there is some corrosion, by its either non-structural or surface rust with bubbling. Unless you’re a perfectionist, you could drive it the way it is for a while.

The 350 V8 and automatic transmission were also installed in the car before he bought it and it has been dependable over the years. You should be able to tool around in this Camaro without having to worry about fixing anything (except the horn) – at least anytime soon. In other words, it’s a roadworthy automobile, according to the seller. However, you’ll have to put in a spot of transmission fluid every few months.

We’re provided with a long list of items that have been replaced recently. These include the rear leaf springs and bushings, gas tank, exhaust system, tires and rims, battery, alternator, distributor, and the wiring harness. The stereo is a newer unit that is not stock, and the speakers were questionably installed by the prior owner. The car once had factory air conditioning, but it’s long gone.

The odometer reading is 28,000, an indication that the odometer has turned over and the Chevy has not been a garage queen. If this car had been an SS 350 from the factory, it would have been one of 22,339 built in 1969. That’s nearly 10% of overall production which was 243,085 cars. Since this Camaro is not the genuine article, how much less is it worth than the real thing ($40,000 and up)?

    Looks good at 10 feet? That’s like saying I look like Brad Pitt at 20 feet!

    I’m not a big fan of clones but to call this car a clone is both an insult and an embarrassment to clones everywhere.

    What’s going on below the door sills?

    In the early ’70s, I owned a plain old ’69 Camaro 327 with the optional ‘deluxe’ interior and vinyl roof. I often yearn for another…but not this one.

    Overspray everywhere. No even a complete clone. Some ss stuff missing.

    Best I recall aren’t there supposed to be braces going from firewall to fenderwells?

    The braces run from the fenderwells to the core support.
