saw this car in May 2001, that was when Jessie just had "secured" the car
from a collector in Manila where this beautiful car has been sitting in a garage in for almost 20 years.
Jessie held on to the car for 3 years and I was quite surprised when he
offered it for sale to me, a temptation I couldn't resist, so we worked
out a deal which included the complete restoration of the car. The car was last
registered in 1991 so it was a long time since it had restored and it started to
show, paint chips here and there.
There is quite a few Camaro
convertibles in the Philippines, but most of them are 67 and 68
models, this is the only remaining 69 convertible in the Country, I was
told the other was exported back to the US.
build as a Pace Car Replica and has Dover White Paint with Hugger Orange Z/28 stripes, hand painted Hugger Orange RS stripes over the wheel openings, Orange Houndstooth
custom interior and rally sport wheels.
It has a non matching numbers 350cui/300HP (L48 code) V8 coupled to a Muncie M20
4 speed wide ratio gearbox with Hurst shifter and a 12 bolt rear end with posi-traction and
sort of highway friendly 3.31 gears. The car was originally a automatic
transmission car and I might drop in a TH350 in it again.
Other equipment includes, full Rally Sport equipment, full Super Sport equipment, special ducted hood (Cowl Induction) or super scoop, courtesy lights, headlight washer system, D80 front and rear spoiler, chambered exhaust, power steering, power disc brakes, powert op, factory
four season air con, wood grain steering wheel, console, factory gauges, electric clock, 5k tachometer, wood grain dashboard,
interior decor group, exterior decor group and an original
pushbutton AM/FM radio that WORKS, rear bumper guards AND MORE.
