Default BBBenny's Survivor 1969 L78 Camaro!

Benny just sent me this yesterday
Hi Bruce,

I've known about this car for over 15 years.The first pic is the owner of the car. Fred Schempp went along to document the picking up the car The owner ordered the car in January of 69. But-the cowl hood option held up the order. He had to complain the the dealer about the time issue. Finally he got the car in May.

He is the orginal owner and the Camaro has orginal paint. The car has the following options; L-78. Turbo 400, gauges, fold down rear seat, block heater, ralley rims, cowl hood, 4;10 posi. spoilers and chambered exhaust. The car has 28,000 documented miles on the clock. In fact, it still has the factory installed rear brake shoes! It's a TRUE survivor and will stay a true survivor car.

Thanks BBBenny

Really neat car!

Nothing better than a True Survivor after 50 years!

I love the engine bay photos.
What is the foil on the lines/hoses?

Thanks for sharing.
