69 camaro has alway's and probably will alway's be my dream car, 49K into a motor is not uncommon,but looking at it (the motor) i did observe the low profile rocker covers, and iron heads, 1.5ratio rockers no doubt.

Yes 69s have different front and the wheel arches are not completely round.

For me the easiest way to know is the wheel arches. they are squarish in the 69 and round in the 67 and 68, so if you are looking at a project car you know.

And the 69 has two round lights moulded into the front valance.

Definitely not a 69, can tell from front valance and crease on the side, the 69's lines run backwards from both wheel arches. But without grill in difficult to tell, could be a 67 or 68? But from the headlight cones it looks like a standard 67
