Default Tell me about rare color combos!

I remember being in Nashville in the early 1990s and saw a two-tone SS350. It was the lighter blue available that year (Warwick Blue in Pontiac-speak) with a white top. I believe 1969 was the first year for the two-tone option on the Camaro.

I've also known that the default stripe color for a burgundy 1969 Camaro was - strangely - red. I have seen one or two SSs like this, but it didn't occur to me that I hadn't seen a Z . . . until now. There's a pic of one in the latest Musclecar Review, and it's the first Camaro in a long time that has stopped my heart.

So I thought it would be interesting if people could post cars that are trimmed a little different from the norm . . . anyone?

If you scroll through this looooooooooong thread you'll find some great shots of the Burgundy/Red Z.

Beautiful car!

I own (since 1977) a documented (shipper invoice & orig bill of sale) 68 RS Z/28 Cordovan Maroon with White Houndstooth interior and white stripes. There are several 69s in this combo, mine is the only 68 to have surfaced so far according to CRG. Also own (since 1988) a 68 SS/RS Convertible LeMans Blue with White interior, top and stripes. I can't wait to see what else shows up on this thread!!!

I saw that OG car at Super Chevy Indy. Indeed a weird combo.

Here was my 69 nova, only a 307 car but was a 53-50 paint code- Glacier Blue with a Dover white painted top. Was a california car it whole life. I thought it was a cool paint combo. A guy by the name Don Werner owns it, anyone know him?

I looked at purchasing a 1968 Chevy II that was two-toned Palamino Ivory with a gold painted top and Gold interior. That was right off the trim tag.
