Found another pic of the Huckleberry Hound, but it's a '66 or '67 GTX! Same names on the car.

Still diggin for info on the '69 Camaro lettered as the HH car, it is indeed a COPO - and is alive!

What was the name of the guy selling those photos at York? Was he at the FCR in E-town? I would like to get some good old local drag photos. Thanks, Kevin

Short update on the HH car;

The original owner of this car confirms that it was a Tuxedo Black, X11 Copo that was purchased from Wallace Chevrolet in Linden, NJ. The owner removed the VIN (616462)and Trim Tag many years ago, and junked the car. The owner retained the bill of sale, dash bezel, the doors, a fender and possibly the transmission. The owner told each of us the same story, that there was no body and it was junked 20 years ago in northern NJ. These items were for sale, however, approx. 6 people passed on the deal because there was no firewall - much less an entire car. One person considered buying the items as memorabilia, and to prevent a rebody, but the price was prohibitive for that purpose.

About a month ago, I received word that somebody in NY claimed to have bought these items from the orig owner. Additionally, the claim is that the original body was found and pulled from a junk yard after 20+ years even though the orig owner did not remember where the body went. The plan is to restore the car, not sure if it will be done as the HH or factory.

Take it for what it's worth, but beware

Marlin,

Any idea what caused the demise of the car? Did it get wrecked during a race or was rusted out??

Mike

To my knowledge the car was not wrecked, but was sitting in the guy's backyard on a trailer for around 10+ years rusting away. The car had 1/4's tacked on, but never fully completed. The BE rear was narrowed and chromed, along with the rear springs, rollpan, etc.... Lots of chrome all over. There were several items that were taken off the car and installed the owner's daughter's car, ie; cowl hood, etc... So, there was really nothing left except what I typed above, and therefore the tags were removed and the body junked. If the owner had known to remove the firewall, he would have done so - he felt that the tags were sufficient to preserve the value/rarity.

Where/how the new owner found the so-called 'original body' in a junk yard is unknown.
