The buyer has a much higher thought around the value of the car. I was more in the 35K to 50K at the very most. Cat has 67K miles on it.

90 % OF 1969 Camaros have had the dash replaced.... fix the car but spend money once do it RIGHT

William pretty much nailed it.

PRESERVATION!

Some automobiles unfortunately cross that line (collision damage, heavy rust or years of neglect) and need a total restoration.

The 69 Z in question should be Preserved as is.
Sounds like it has Factory paint and born with Powertrain.
Small rust, patina and just 53 years of aging is what I like to see.

The last time I took my ‘66 GTO Survivor to a major car show was 12 years ago.
Even back then I had a big crowd around this car asking questions and admiring the old Factory paint and original Powertrain.
Every other car there was a repaint, repro interior and somewhat modified version under the hood = Dime-a-dozen.

The Unrestored collectible automobiles are what most people are seeking ….. and they do draw a crowd.

Original patina is always cool. Get it running and safe to drive. Wax on, wax off.

Looks like possibly a flipper picked up the car. A car matching the description to a T is for sale on a 1969 camaro Facebook page for a mere 100k. The usual photos of it still loaded on a flatbed and all.

Yes this is the car that I was asking about valuation. Rust in the lower quarters. lower front fenders and dash. Deck lid is rough as some container of chemical was set on it and has caused quite a bit of rust. Based on the pictures of the silver z/28 in this thread, this car is not even close to that condition. The flipper is trying to score big. I have seen the car and had it on a lift if anyone would like to know more as I am not a buyer at 110K
