Default RogerD's 1969 Dick Harrell Chevelle

Tracked down/bought back on Aug 13, 2009, 40 years later!!

Copy of Craigslist (Relished) ad I found on Aug 11, 2009


August 13, 2009 - money changes hands


August 1985 Missouri inspection sticker on the windshield


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 . . .

Purchased my ’69 COPO/Dick Harrell Chevelle new on Aug 19, 1969 from Bill Allen Chevrolet, NKC, MO.
1st date KarenB in this car Memorial Day weekend May 30, 1970
Asked her to marry me two weeks later and she accepted!
Traded the car off in Oct 1970, engine trouble
Married KarenB a few weeks later

Car is home Aug 16, 2009 after a grueling 1,902 mile road trip
That's Karen standing next to me and our first date car
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

As it looks Aug 13, 2009 and and copies of my original paperwork, saved all these years

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

Congratulations!

This 427 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.
