Default 1969 Z/28 Special Order Paint

This Mecum ad is a few years old but what ever happened to this car.
Anyone seen this car in person? Sold new in Pa. It is a stripe delete car
and has an enclosed cowl air cleaner set up under the hood. Don't know if
it's been talked about here on sYc but here's the link...

The subject of that car has been beaten to death over on the Camaro boards. Many banned posters and closed or deleted threads.

All over whether it was really Cortez silver or Evening Orchid and whether special paint doubles the value or just makes it interesting. It was also speculated there was shill bidding on that auction.

Completely unrelated, Dana Mecum owns a special paint Carolina Blue 1969 Camaro.

Original owner has posted here on this forum as to the color. As it stands there is about zero upside to discussing this car further.

Does being a stripe delete car add that much more value?

So Steve, What makes this car worth that much, the color? Doesn't seem too desirable to me.

It's only as valuable as someone is willing to pay. I haven't followed the car. If it bid high in an auction but didn't hit reserve, ignore that price as it's value.
