Chevrolet's first generation Camaro is a timeless design that, no matter how it's built, always remains fresh and alluring. Stock, modified, race, pro-touring, whatever; the clean lines and balanced stance on these tough muscle machines mix classic swagger with a modernist look that serves as the perfect platform for a variety of modifications. And best of all, the Camaro line's universal appeal and high production numbers mean it has one of the largest aftermarket support networks in the entire collector car hobby. Born from that awesome combination of appeal and support, this killer 1969 pro-touring coupe is a virtual tour de force of modern technology and proven mechanicals. A clean body that's been converted into one of the sickest rides around via custom suspension work and a 468 cubic inch big block, this red-hot Chevy pony car is a killer classic that can be both driven and enjoyed. If you're shopping for a fully-sorted cruiser that puts a modern spin on an old school favorite, you're looking at your next car!
Recently transformed into a lean and mean pro-touring dream car, this spectacular 1969 Camaro displays good bodywork under a nice finish. Its metamorphosis started with a full factory-built frame and original 1969 Camaro body that appear to have never seen rust or any significant damage. Those components were shipped to a restoration shop where every one of that body's panels were thoroughly re-aligned, ensuring all of their seams are narrow and precise. Once the car's newly tweaked fuselage was massaged into acceptable shape, a smooth coat of Tuxedo Black basecoat was detailed with Dover White rally stripes and sealed in a thick clearcoat shell. And today, this Chevy sits as one eye-catching classic that has major street presence and lethal curb appeal!
There's no question that the '69 Camaro is one of the best-looking pony cars of all time. And when a skilled builder throws in a few of his own custom touches, it only serves to make things better! At the front of this clean F1, a satin black Rally Sport grille hangs stainless-trimmed headlights above a showroom-quality bumper and crystal clear parking lamps. Above that grille, a traditional ZL2 cowl induction hood rides between a familiar “Camaro by Chevrolet” emblem and like-new glass that's bordered by straight stainless trim and cleared by matte-finished wipers. At the sides of that hood, sculpted fenders combine with traditional chrome door handles, small marker lights and a correct chrome mirror to add just the right amount of detail to the car's jet black profile. And at the back of those fenders, a D80 decklid spoiler hangs above flush-fitting tail lights, a second showroom-quality bumper and a pair of unpolished turndowns.
The Chevrolet division has always represented performance to a virtual army of car guys. But unlike its refined and precise Corvette brethren, the Camaro manifests that performance as raw attitude and brute power. Lift the hood of this awesome pro-tourer and you'll find a 468 cubic inch big block V8 that'll turn heads and elicit stares anywhere you go. At the top of the monster mill, air flows through a custom chrome cleaner to a reusable filter element that rides above a big Holley 4-barrel, a bright Summit pressure gauge and fresh stainless fuel lines. A resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from a chrome Edelbrock Performer 2.0 intake to solid black heads that are topped with a slick pair custom-fabricated valve covers. Once those heads flood the cylinders, a traditional points distributor sequences fire from a localized coil to loomed Ultimate Heat Protection wires. And resultant spent gases are jettisoned through coated Hooker long-tube headers that perfectly contrast the block's black high temp paint. The big engine's cooling is provided by a beefy aluminum radiator that's equipped with a large electric puller fan. Charging comes courtesy of a polished alternator that, along with a chrome AC compressor, a chrome water pump and a chrome power steering pump, is spun by an aesthetically pleasing VIPS pulley system. And overall, the glossy black engine compartment is exceptionally clean featuring details such as fully restored hood hardware, chrome brace bars, chrome horns, a chrome brake booster and a high quality Optima battery.
While the standard mode of power transfer on showroom new '69 Camaros was a tough Muncie 4-speed, the benefit of 40 years of increasing technology now affords us painless upgrades like this car's slick shifting 6-speed Tremec TKO600. Behind that 6-speed, a fresh driveshaft spins a chrome-capped 10 bolt rear end that hangs between a thick sway bar, two air shocks and two mono leaf springs. At the front of the car, a complete rebuild saw the addition of tubular upper and lower control arms and a second thick sway bar. At all four corners of the car, Aerospace Components disc brakes provide serious handling prowess and first rate stopping ability. Exhaust flows from the aforementioned Hooker long-tube headers into a stainless true dual system that's complete with dual chamber Flowmaster mufflers and rear mounted turndowns. Putting the power to the pavement is a set of mirror-like Foose wheels which spin 245/45ZR17 Delinte Thunder D7s in front of 255/35ZR20 Delinte Thunder D7s. And the car's clean satin black floors, which have been restored to better than new condition, feature a full array of finishing components that includes a chrome oil pan, a new stainless fuel tank, a beefed up transmission crossmember, new stainless fuel and brake lines, and a full set of spotless stainless hardware.
Open this Chevy's tight doors and you'll find a highly customized interior that wraps a nice blend of classic style and modern convenience around firm, fifth generation Camaro Super Sport seats. In front of those power-operated seats, a modified dash hangs a slick set of Classic Instruments gauges between a stylized instrument panel and a satellite capable, Bluetooth compatible CD/DVD/MP3 player that's fronted by a seven inch touch screen. At the base of that dash, a custom center console, which has been carefully wrapped in perforated leather, anchors a black-balled Indy shifter between two cup holders and buttons for the car's power windows. Below that console, high quality black carpet props thick rubber floor mats next to Memphis Audio kick panel speakers. At the edges of that carpet, custom leather door panels wear sculpted armrests and pristine chrome handles. In front of the driver, a polished tilt steering column spins a polished Lecarra wheel around a full set of billet stalks. And behind the passengers, two more Memphis Audio speakers hang over a fully restored trunk that's complete with a new jack, a fifth Foose wheel and a fifth Delinte Thunder D7 radial.
Sometimes the best cars are the ones that speak softly. No blower sticking through the hood, no gaudy rims on a slammed chassis and no wild graphics; just a clean, classy and well-constructed muscle car that was purpose-built to look great and have the gumption to back those looks up. With its classic style, excellent performance and modern comfort, this slick Camaro pro-tourer is an absolute blast to drive and is instantly admired wherever it goes. Don't miss this chance to own a powerful well-sorted performance machine that's as timeless today as it was 44 years ago!
