The 1969 Pace Car replica is not really rare, with over 3,675 produced, dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)but is not all that common either.http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gif


While these particular options don't really increase the car's value, they are rare.
The 1967 Z/28 can be considered rare, with only 602 produced. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)
http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gifAny Camaro with the L89 engine is a rare car. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)This was the aluminum head 396 engine, which sold 272 units in '68, and another 311 in '69. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)

http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gifAnother rare option is the JL8 4-wheel disc brake setup. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)There were only 206 factory equipped JL8 cars sold, but there dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)were many more with the service package rear end from the dealer installed. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)


Original JL8 rear    axle is tapered.Service package rear axle is larger, no taper.


http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gifIn addition, factory JL8 cars used 11-3/4 inch front rotors, while regular cars used an 11 inch rotor.
http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gifMoving on down the line of rare Camaros, dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)we come to the special dealer prepared cars. One of the first dealers to build high performance dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)Camaros was Baldwin Chevrolet in conjunction with Motion Performance. There were soon severaldot_clear.gif (46 bytes) hundred 427 Phase III Baldwin Motion Camaros rolling off the lot, although the exact number is unknown.dot_clear.gif (46 bytes) It is believed that all the cars had a broad stripe running dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)from front to rear down the middle of the car, as well as a special hood scoop. In 1969 the 427 dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)Phase III Camaro listed for $4,998.95. In addition to the big block cars, Motion also built several Phase dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)III Z/28's, which included Mallory ignition, dual electric fuel pumps, tuned equal length headers, dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)special hood scoop, Scheifer Rev-Lok clutch and aluminum flywheel, and a Lakewood scattershield. dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)

http://www.holisticpage.com/camaro/images/dot_clear.gifDana Chevrolet was founded by Peyton Cramer, dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)and named after a street, Dana Avenue. Dana Chevroletdot_clear.gif (46 bytes) built 427 Camaros from 1967 through 1969, but the cars dot_clear.gif (46 bytes)remain a mystery today. It is not known how many were built.
