1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS-L48 “Extremely Rare”
Location: Alburquerque, New Mexico
Rare Azure Blue
This rare Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS-L48 car with 28 factory options sold on December 12, 1968 to Patricia Murray from Huntington Beach, California . It was purchased at Fletcher Chevrolet in Encino, California for $4,590.24. The Chevrolet Corvette & Ford Shelby GT500 sold for the same price in ’69. The ’69 Z28 sold for less. Only the ’69 Yenko & Zl1 sold for more.
Seller states it was ordered with 28 factory options. Many of which are extremely rare. Not only is this the most highly (Factory) rare optioned ’69 Camaro ever built, it is the most highly rare optioned First Gen period. Not once has one showed up with this many rare options, all in one package.
Having all these options in a First Gen Camaro is enough to satisfy any First Gen enthusiast, but what really sets this car apart from all the rest is it’s “Special Order Paint” option: GM Paint Code 80; “Powder Blue”. This is the only known ’69 Camaro out of 243,932 built that came off the “ASSEMBLY-LINE” with this “FACTORY” color. In addition, this GM paint code was not available in ’67 or ’68, which adds to the rarity of this GM color.
Options; RS pkg, SS pkg, Special Order Paint, Am/Fm “Blue Light” Stereo, Electric Clock, Center Console, Head Restraints, Deluxe Seat Belts, Speed Warning Device, Auxiliary Lighting Group, Air Conditioning, Tilt Steering Column, Power Windows, Steering Wheel & Dash Wood-grain Accents, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Vanity Mirror, Light Monitoring System, Mirror-Outside Left Remote Control, Space Saver Spare, Front & Rear Bumper Guards, Spoiler, Vinyl Roof, Tinted Glass (original), Stripe Delete, & SS Chevelle Type Wheel, Spoiler, Guards- Door Edge.
Fact: A bit of trivia: 1969 vs 2016 buying power; The Am/Fm “Blue Light” Stereo sold for $239.10 = to $1,499.16. A/C sold for $376.00 = to $2,357.52. Tilt Steering Column sold for $45.30 = to $284.03. Power Steering sold for $94.80 = to $594.40. Power Brakes sold for $42.15 = to $264.28. Light Monitoring System sold for $26.35 = to $165.21. Mirror-Outside Left Remote Control sold for $10.55 = to $66.15. Vinyl Roof sold for $84.30 = to $528.56. Soft Ray Tinted Glass sold for $32.65 = to $204.72. SS Chevelle Type Wheel (available for Camaro SS Prior to 1/08/69) sold for $75.00 = to $470.25.

Please note; The term; “Numbers Matching” is often used in an attempt to market high end classics. This First Generation Camaro is the epitome of a number’s matching classic. Years of research has culminated, not only in the “Decode” photograph’s above, but also in a 187 page book which includes additional detailed photographs. Many of these photographs taken of the car are used to illustrate the options listed above, and have been cross referenced with; “1969 Camaro 12000 Series Assembly Instruction Manual”. The pages of this manual that pertain to each of the options are also included.
In addition, the Table of Contents includes (but not limited to); “The First Generation Camaro”, “A Rare 1969 Camaro”, “Uncovering the History of the Car”, “1969 Camaro RS/SS-L48” and “Numbers Matching Car”. All with many more detailed photographs.

Mine had all these options plus deluxe houndstooth interior, folding rear seat, rear defogger, tachometer, console gauges. My license plate was EVRYOPT. I never should have sold it. I bought it from an old woman in a Safeway parking lot in Woodland Hills, CA. I gave her my name and phone number and a year later she sent me a letter to come buy “Gladys” for $2,500. It was 1979. Those were the days.

I have a 1969 Camaro that has this same special ordered color so it’s definitely not the only one made in 1969 that is powder blue
