Hard to believe it's been a couple years since I last updated this thread, but that's what happens when I put other cars and other priorities in the way. In any case, I am finally back onto the 69 Camaro and it's assembly with plans to having it running and driving for it's birthday which is a mere 2 months away. I've just started to pull out all the parts I have stashed around here and organize the shop with everything I need for the car. With the Nova now finished and shuffled aside, the Camaro assembly will start this week. As parts and assembly progresses, I'll also run the 302 on the stand one more time before it's installed with the transmission in a few short weeks. A large task, but one I'm finally ready to devote the time to while getting it done. Here's a few more of the dated parts I've been going about finding over the past couple years. Each date is perfectly matched to the cars 05A build code and May 9th shipping date.

Glad to see that you decided to keep and finish the car.
It looks amazing and I love Rally Green for I basically own the same car (twin).
Here is a picture of mine, the older brother 03D build. No spoiler and flat hood

Awesome build. How much work did the underside need to bring it back to stock? I noticed the 350-255 label and wondered if the cowl hood was available with that engine or if NHRA even cared about that.

Guys in his class quickly learned that they picked up a 10th by adding the cowl hood. NHRA allowed the hood but quickly enforced that it had to be functional if added to a car. This ones been on the car since about 73 and will stay on now. As for the floors, they were spotless and clean, but were replaced with a new 2-piece kit due to the cage being installed with ladder bars and frame connectors tied in. Tough decision but painstaking work was performed to ensure the new floor looked and fit like factory. All spot welds along the rockers were replicated to factory style. Inner/outer wheels houses were also done at the same time while all top side metal stayed intact. It was a clean car and a great candidate to retire with some provenance and restore back to stock.

Cleaned the shop the last couple days to rid it of anything that's not going onto this Camaro. Engine is back on the stand for another run session and all parts are now laid out for the assembly to start in the next couple days. Going to be spending a lot of time in the shop to have this one finished up for it's birthday. Here's a shot rolling it back to the shop and another as it's finally back on the work table.

Since getting the Nova running and putting it aside, I am now focused on the 69 and its assembly. Took it back to the painter for a couple small issues that needed addressing before putting the glass in and now that it's back I'm making good progress. Fuel lines are run, tank is mounted, 4-leaf springs are installed and stock lower mounting plate are installed with spiral shocks mounted. On the top side, I cleaned up all the regulators and door hardware and got it all installed last week complete with tinted glass. I then got most of the exterior trim back onto the car and today I'm going to finish the rear brakes and start hanging the e-brake cables under the car. Won't be long before I work my way up to the front of the car and start under the hood. Stay tuned in the weeks ahead as the car inches towards it's birthday in May.

Plans are to have it running for then!


Dropped off for some minor paint work last week.


Unwrapping the stainless trim and getting the clips installed before glass.


Swapped all the hardware from the old side glass to the new glass.


Cleaned up all the door and window regulators prior to installation.


Installed all new tinted glass along with the restored stainless trim.


Aligned all the side glass and it's looking and fitting really well.


Rear leaf springs with stock mounting plates and spiral shocks installed.


Correct dual fluted NOS derby caps installed on restored rings.


Finished look of the restored YH rally wheels wrapped in Firestones.
