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?

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 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.

How about a Lemonwood Yellow 67 Chevelle Malibu with a Medium Blue interior (yes, Blue believe it or not). Ugliest thing I've ever seen, but it's unrestored and verified to the trim tag!! Someone was smoking something when they filled out the order form, I guess.

Wonder if most of these unusual color combo cars were built at the end of the production run where they had an inventory of parts they had to use up for the end of the model run?

Actually, 374 'Cuda ragtops were built. 292 were built for US consumption.

But there's nothing inherently unusual about triple black.

But you want an unusual '71? How about this?

I have what some may consider to be unique. My car was built in late September, 1969 and delivered just in time for Halloween. It is a strange combination of Tuxedo Black with White stripes and Orange Hounds Tooth interior. It is an original ZL2 ducted hood car with Canadian documentation. Some folks refer to the car as "The Great Pumpkin" I would be happy to share if anyone would like to see it.
Richard.
Oh and by the way I also have a glacier blue 69 coupe with a dover white painted roof and dark blue interior. The original owner did not care for the painted top and had a dark blue vinyl top installed.
Thanks!

Thanks for the compliment Jed, I just finished this car a few months ago. We're in the middle of our show season down here and it's been a great time showing it.

Thanks Gilbert, it's been doing pretty well at the judged shows. I took it to the Winter National show in Kissimme a couple of weeks ago and it pulled a 992 out of a 1000. I actually thought it would do a little better but I guess I need to correct a couple of oversights on my part. It's going to the AACA Winter National show this Friday and the Charlotte Spring National show in April. We'll see how it does there. It's been fun for sure.

Thanks for the compliments. I've restored several 70's over the years and they were nice drivers but this was my first attempt at a nut/bolt, frame off, rotisserrie resto. I had a lot of great advice from Jeff Dotterer, Chris White and a few of the guys on T Chevelle on correctness issues as well. Those guys know their stuff! My only problem is I can't just hop in it and go. I've put about 40/50 miles on it just to break everything in, now it's just trailored. It's still a lot of fun showing it though.

Yeah, but you sure don't see many around today in that color scheme.. I tried to talk my friend into leaving the car this way but he made it triple black when he restored it.. To each is own..

You should have kept it stripe delete!

Rare or not, I'm just looking for unusual Camaros, although it seems it has become a free-for-all. I don't think Monaco Orange fits the bill but, hell, I'm not gonna stop ya from posting a picture! :-)

What about those Camaros people have mentioned? LET'S SEE PICS!

Jim did have one with a lot of GM over the counter goodies on it. Black guts, low miles too. I'm talking about the Maroon/white houndstooth combo of mine. Thats the "only one known" part of it.

Fastone, your car now has a brother. There is a cordova maroon with white houndstooth interior 68Z but non RS here locally.It needs to be restored and only has 47K on the odometer.I have been keeping up with it since 1998.I didn't realize the color combo was that rare.It is a second owner and it has had a hard life.

All right!!! My long lost brother!!!! I knew there had to be more out there!!! If I remember right, this combination wasn't available on the order forms. It's been a long time since I looked at one though. Back then you could special order just about any combination you wanted. I think white houndstooth was only available the last half of 68??? The one you found is the only other one to surface in any body trim(SS RS Z/28 plain jane etc). Any more cousins out there??? "Dalmation Trim" is just plain rare with any color exterior

The silver/green Camaro is pretty interesting. I've never seen a combo like that, but silver was kinda a flexible color - probably second to black or white as being something that goes with everything. On a hunch, I checked a color chart for another car that was available in silver, and lo and behold, green was a recommended interior for silver. Pretty interesting!

1968 Nova SSs are my favorite of that generation - I especially like the SUPER SPORT script on the rockers. But green and gold are not unusual in combination. I think of it more of a sedan combo rather than something that you'd find on a performance car.

Richard, your car is wonderful. I always thought the orange houndstooth was pace car-only (plus Z10s too!), but maybe not? Was it RPO or special-ordered? I think it's much more striking than a while car with the same interior because the white car would remind me of a pace car.

Keep the pics coming!

Here's one for you guys. This 442 is a triple yellow, 4 speed vert and it is absolutely stunning.






Looks like a pale yellow--something like the leamonwood yellow on the '66 Chevelle. Those redlines & chrome factory mags really make that color/combo pop.....

The Orange Hounds Tooth was a standard feature or RPO code for a Z10 or Z11 however the interior itself could be ordered with any exterior colour. It just so happens very few people found the interior an appealing choice with most exterior colours. My car was definitely a speacial order and having been built right before Halloween it has been dubbed "The Pumpkin" I have never seen another like it and feel very forunate to own such a car. I have the original micro fische build sheet and General Motors of Canada documentation. I will share additonal photographs if anyone is interested. Thanks for the interest!

Your Z is indeed a stunning car and I enjoyed getting the "personal tour" at last years Performance World show in Toronto.

Will you be showing anything at Performance World next weekend? Look for a fresh Rally Green 69 Nickey Vintage Continuation Series 427 COPO Camaro, fresh out of Nickey Chicago to make its premier showing!

Hope to see you there.

I owned this car from 1997 to 2000. It has a Pacific Northwest Drag racing History.
It has traded hands a few times since I sold it and it is known as the "UPS Car".

I'm confused, so I'll rephrase:

Was the orange houndstooth normally available on cars other than the Z11/Z10 cars? Or did it have to be a special-ordered car if you wanted that interior? I know white, black, and yellow houndstooth were regularly available, but I've had the impression it was Z11/Z10-only. I could be wrong, though.

Good evening Bob,
Thank you very much, it was a pleasure meeting you as well. I quite enjoyed spending time with you and Fred both. The cars were exceptional and I can hardly wait to see the Rally Green car! I will once again be in the front building but this year has a bit of a twist. I will be showing my 1970 Plymouth Cuda, not a Camaro. Please search me out and I will do the same for you. I am going to be in and out as I have four children in hockey and all in in their respective playoffs. If you wish Bob PM me and I will forward my personal cell.
Thanks,
Richard.

Checked the CRG site and they mention that White and Black cars have been found with the Orange houndstooth but it was mostly intended for the Orange cars. I beleive that no Z10 has been found with this interior (last that I heard). I had a Hugger Orange/Black vinyl top Z/28 that also had the Orange houndstooth.

Hey Bill, do you still have your Hugger Orange car with Orange Hounds Tooth Interior? To the best of our knowledge my Canadian documented car is the only Tuxedo Black 1969 Z/28 produced with Orange Hounds Tooth Interior. There are some other cars found with the orange interior but no other black Z/28's. My car is also an original ZL2 special ducted hood car with white stripes. My interior including door panels are 100% original and unrestored. I love the car and wish I still had my 1969 Pace car which now resides somewhere south of the border! Thanks for letting me share guys!!!

been watching this thread for a while, I think the black z with orange interior is 'it' as is the black copo with yellow interior. The L78 bat car's black exterior with gold interior is very unique and cool too, probably will never see that combo on a convert.

How would he know it's a 1 of 1? For one thing, Bamboo Cream is like Gobi Beige, right? And, hence, Sierra Yellow. What are the default stripe colors for a Judge? Green! That combo sounds a lot like a typical Electra, but not a GS . . . and not that unusual, in the end, because they all match.

Ditto for the black/blue GTO mentioned above. (I've seen it in person, by the way!) Black goes with everything, so a blue interior works fine. After all, don't we see plenty on black interiors in blue cars? Why would this GTO be any different?

I'm still waiting to see that black Camaro with the yellow houndstooth . . . !

Bringing this thread back up, especially for "442w30". A rare color combo, especially for an SD-455 car, just popped up on E-Bay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayIS...0&viewitem=

Aside from the vinyl top (which just looks plain bad on a 2nd Gen Bird), I love the brown/gold combo.

This is an old post, but I didn't want to start a new thread. (I wanted to keep these "rare color combos" pics together).

This 1964 GTO with a painted top just appeared on E-Bay..."two-tone skyline blue/nocturne blue combination. This paint scheme was featured on Ronny and the Daytona’s “Little GTO” album cover."

my father in law has owned a few rare color combo 64 Fords Galaxies. One was black with silver/blue interior and the other was silver/blue outside with red interior.

My 68 Z is Ivory / black stripes with a black vinyl top and Ivy Gold interior. I'm guessing it is the only Z ordered with these colors.

I saw this on Team Camaro:

Burnished Brown and a green interior?








Ive had a few different combo's over the years pass thru me.

My very first 1969 Camaro was a VN Z/28, Silver Paint, Green standard bucket interior, console & gauges, Speed Warning, Tach, Dash Clock, Flat hood, NO spoilers, and that was it!

Had another 1969 Z/28 that was Azure Turquoise, White Standard Buckets, X33-D80, Console and Gauges, Tach, Dash Clock, ZL2, Spoilers. Put a X-RAM on it with the 2nd design off road cam in it....That thing was dead until 3500 RPM's then took off like a raped ape thru 3rd!!!

Found a Black Vinyl Top Z10 once in a yard.

I vaguely remember that... was featured in a magazine back in the 80's and if I recall correctly there was a pic of the trim tag that showed it was actually repainted and was supposed to be frost or fathom green.

Was'nt it featured in Super Chevy back in the late eighties? Black and white feature? Heater delete. If I remember right there was a shot of the trim tag and it was a Fathom Green car originaly. I would have to dig up my old issues to see. That was a long time ago I may be wrong.

This may not be the most desireable or rarest color combo to some however in the 17 years that ive owned this car ive only seen two other 69 camaro rs/ss convertibles with this combo/garnet red w/red deluxe interior and between carshows and the internet ive looked at hundreds of camaros.

I recall a 69 Z/28 here locally in Anahem that was Garnet Red with Red ComfortWeave interior.

It was the only one Ive ever seen with this combination.

Thanks very much for the compliment! What started out to be just a paintjob turned into a full blown restoration. We all know how that works.

I guess this is somewhat rare because I have yet to see this same combo on another car, Its my 67 Camaro convertible restoration project that I hope to finsh in same color one day,
Its capri cream w/ white top. I have seen some verts in same color but with black tops.

Car is originally a 6 banger.

Does anybody know much about this '69 RS/Z? Its going across the block at BJ 2010 Scottsdale after two other Z's, number 441.3, I think. I like oddball combos. I was sad when the burnished brown/green deluxe car shown earlier in this thread got restored with a black interior. But I'm not sure the weird/cool factor could let me keep this thing HUGGER ORANGE/GREEN STD.

Regarding the red on red convertible...

My dad's '70 Convertible was born a Cranberry Red / Red interior Malibu 350, Disc Brake car. Now it's an SS "tribute" car, (clone has such a negative sound). Black on Red w/ a 396. Yes, I know... people frown on fake SS cars, but this one will never be passed off as "real", and it wouldn't pass for "real" anyway.
