I have a history with this car. The best friend was selling this car for the widow and wanted it to go to a good home. I assured him it would if I bought it. We agreed on a price. I didn't want to get too pushy, considering the circumstances and gave him a little space. After not hearing from him for a few days, I texted him. He said the widow decided to sell it to an "IROC collector" for exactly the price we agreed to. I asked him if this "IROC collector" is so and so from so and so? He said YES, how'd you know?

I told him this IROC collector, no longer collects IROCs and you'll see it on ebay soon. He was flabbergasted. Sure enough, it was on eBay days after. Now it's for sale again. Too bad. I don't see a price?

Re: L69 Irocs for sale

Some of the cars that come up in a search on that web site sold YEARS ago......dont be surprised if the ad was from back when you
were talking with the seller and the car sold long ago and not even for sale today.....did you see the reference to an ebay auction in the description......
and it's not on ebay

Re: L69 Irocs for sale

That was the first time I used this site. I was so pumped to see so many for sale. I was like it’s L69 heaven! Now I find out it’s just a bunch of old ads

Re: L69 Irocs for sale

and the collector I sold it to, when trying to sell it, tried to say it was the first Bright Blue IROC Norwood built. donít know where he got that info. Many built before mine. Thank God it didnt sell, because he was supposed to contact me if he ever sold it. Luckily I contacted him out of the blue. That was close.

I wish I could trade my loaded silver 85 Iroc for a L69 car. It is what I wanted at the start.

This car belongs to friend and former co worker. The car is beautiful and I can assure it's been well cared for. Let me know if you need help getting in touch with John.

Re: L69 Irocs for sale

Z28cop is right, his was certainly not the first ,my blue L69 was built before his. After speaking to Z28cop, he figured mine was built Dec. 24, 1984. After 13 years in my garage, she's done and on the road again!!!

I know what you mean.. It's pretty low optioned though, wondering they were on there from the factory or not. The SPID is not very clear in the pic. For the miles and asking price, they could have also spruced it up a bit. At least fresh center caps and visors. In general, the pics suck and none of the engine compartment or undercarriage.

true - I'd need to see underside pics before I'd make the drive over to see it
