An awesome photo of the #69 ZL1 Camaro posted on FB in the Huebner Chevrolet showroom. Thanks to Randy Doll and Jim Stubbings for posting the photo. Very cool shot.

Either way, it's going to be beautiful for what it is when completed.
As already mentioned in this thread, the VIN tag and partial VIN panels (firewall and cowl), along with front floors, hinge pillars, etc....are all original which would, in most people's eyes negate this being "rebody",....but also the way I look at it, a 55 year old car, if still around that may have seen time as a daily driver, weekend cruiser, part time racer, whatever, ..in that time might have been involve in a few accidents between multiple owners, needing a 3/4 nose here, and perhaps a door there,...may have had quarter skins and floors replaced due to rust and rot,.....maybe even roof work if it was a vinyl top car that rotted out.

Replacing all those crunched panels in my eyes is no worse then replacing rotted and dented panels that get replaced in many major restorations.

What is going on in that showroom? A 59 Caddy and 69 Camaro. Some sort of anniversary party?

I see two. One looking at the window sticker and one under the hood.

I’d love that 65-68 Saab 96 you can see outside, especially if the 2-stroker!
Cool pic Rick, thanks for posting it.

I don't know about most peoples eyes, but to me; cosmetic replacement is one thing, structural replacement is another. That said, I'd be very happy to own it and enjoy it for whatever it is.

If you look closely, that's because it seems like everyone in that picture behind the Camaro are in line for something,....heading what looks like, out the door or at least toward the door.
