Default RogerD's 1969 Dick Harrell Chevelle

Purchased my ’69 COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle new on Aug 19, 1969 from Bill Allen Chevrolet, NKC, MO.
1st date with my wife Karen in this car Memorial Day weekend May 30, 1970
Asked her to marry me two weeks later and she accepted!
Tracked down/bought back on Aug 13, 2009, 40 years later!!
Car in my garage Aug 16, 2009 after a grueling 1,902 mile road trip
It’s white now but still Monaco Orange underneath
It will be the original orange again
Black interior w/bucket seats now
It will be the original parchment with bench seat again



PS: It's not a SS, never had SS trappings just a 'Malibu'
Blue bowtie on the grill
V8 emblems on fenders
Dick Harrell emblem on the deck lid . . .
As it looks Aug 13, 2009 and a copy of the CL add . . .

Very cool Roger! I remember that you were looking for it...but you weren't holding out too much hope.

Congratulations!

So, was it legit or was it a fake? If it was fake, I am hopeful the scammer received exactly what he deserved.
My car is legit, I have the original docs from my 1966 Chevelle SS 396 trade in, the original docs on the 1969 DHPC Chevelle purchased on Aug 19, 1969 and the original docs on my 1970 Camaro for which the 1969 DHPC was traded in Octoberr 1970.
I'm a pack rat don't you know - sure pays off some times!!!

This 427 posted by COPO Anders seemed legit.

Awesome Roger and congrats on getting her back! Can't wait to see the progression of the restoration and hear the stories.

Bring the Chevelle and your lovely wife to the reunion in a few weeks. We would LOVE to see the car and meet you and your wife!!!

Nice, you learn something new everyday. When the car was new, did it carry a regular SS style hood? Do you have any original pictures of the hood and blackout treatment/stripe?

It had an SS hood and SS wheels - no SS emblems except the wheels ...
The hood had black stripes - Large Chevy "flags" on the front fenders & Dick Harrell emblem on the deck . . .
This is a photoshopped picture of what it looked like new . . .

Big Congrats and welcome to the site!

Did your trim tag have a code 72 for orange paint or did DH dealership paint it that color?

[ QUOTE ]
It did have the SS hood but absolutely no SS emblems anywhere on the car. . .
The hood had black stripes - I believe the Dick Harrell emblem on the deck lid was a black rectangle instead of the one shown here (my memory is a bit confused on the DHPC emblem).



[/ QUOTE ]

Is it me or does the bow tie emblem, the black stripes and the dealer sticker all look like they've been photo shopped and you can see the faint outline of the SS emblems on the tail panel.
Are these touched up pictures of someone else's car so we can get a better idea of how your car looked when new?

BTW, congratulations on getting her back; can't wait to see how things progress.
