I was out at Sears yesterday and parked next to something I’ve never seen before. It was a 69 SS350 Station wagon. From what I could see standing next to it looked to be correct. I just can’t believe that Chevy ever made the car. I’m assuming it was someone’s project, but could it be real

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but it is my understanding that the SS package was an option available on any model for 69 including the wagon.

There's a member on this site that has a '70 "SS" Wagon. A car I'd be proud to own. He converted it to an SS and did one hell of a job. So, it's proof that it can be done, but discussions have been that none came directly from the factory that way.

I may be all wet here but I stand by my earlier statement and yes I do believe it could come with a 350 as well.
Can't imagine anyone actually ordering one, so most likely it was a clone but I do believe it was available.
Anybody?

Great input. Hopefully, I'll run into the owner. If I do I will ask about the car and post his/her response.

You couldn't get anything other than a 396 in a 69 Chevelle SS. As for SS wagons, I am only aware of them being avialable in 73 and 74. Sounds like someone made themself a cool clone.

On one of the super-chevy car shows on ESPN2 a long time ago I remember seeing a 70's SS Chevelle Wagon, and they said it was original. The owner had got it from someone who worked at GM, who he thinks may have had it built through COPO. I think it was a 70.

You're correct moloko. It was called a concourse wagon and came with a 454 big block. I remember reading about one in one of my magazines. Not sure about 69 though. I'll see if I can dig up that magazine.

the SS option in 69 could be had with any of the chevelle models. but it could only be had with the 396. a 69 SS with a 350 is not a real SS. end of story.

OK, you guys need the straight scoop.
Referring to 1969 Chevelle's only here.
The SS396 RPO Z25, was only available on a 2 door hardtop, convertible, El Camino, and post type sedan. There were NO SS350's. No such animal. And no SS396 station wagons either.
If you want to see the one I have, click onto this. This car was built just as the factory would have done it if they had ever made a 1969 Chevelle SS396 S/W !!www.tcsn.net/ss396/ss396wagon/mvc-009s.jpg

The first year for the Chevelle SS350 was 1971. For a small block SS Previous to that--1965 (6 cyl, 283, 327). All Super Sports in between were Big Blocks. 1966-70.
1973 was the only year for an SS chevelle wagon. They were available with a 350 or 454.
These are rare, but I have personally seen 3 of them. There was one on eBay last week.
Hope this helps to clear up the confusion.
Nate
