Thanks for the info. The engine is a new rebuild so I guess I shouldn't really expect any major problems unless something is missing that I don't know about. I guess I need to buy a factory engine manual.

I'm not sure about Colorado's laws but in many states a 1969 car would be considered an antique and would be exempt from emission laws.
Some states also have hobbyist plates that exempt your car from testing.

As far as I know everything that was on the car factory must be there.In your case if its a non-Ca. car I think you need a PCV,the origanal aircleaner,and the right vacuum line hook ups.I think evan headers are legal cause theres no Cats and duel exhuast was factory.If it had a heat riser tube for the air cleaner thats required.
With a good tune up and as long as you don't have crazy race parts(9,000,000duration cam etc..) I think you'll pass.If not steal some plates and drive it anyway!!!!

1969 Camaro Emissions
I just bought a rotisserie restored 69' Camaro RS/SS 396. The car is restored completely to factory specifications. I have been looking at Colorado's emissions program as I will be required to have the vehicle pass or spend money to try and pass and if not, get a waiver, in order to get the tags for the car. I don't want some kid at a required Colorado sanctioned air emissions repair facility screwing around with the engine/carb to get it to pass. Has anyone had experience with doing this and what should I expect? I am wondering if they force you to spend money on a catelytic converter or some other bogus emissions hardware. Can anyone give some advice?
