Built for speed, this 1969 Camaro looks fast just sitting still. And while it's great looking, the real story is under the hood, because this RS/SS coupe packs a forged GM Performance Parts 383 cubic inch stroker motor, a 5-speed transmission, and enough horsepower to make you forget this car is more than 40 years old. Bathed in Hugger Orange with black hockey sticks, nobody will be able to overlook this one, and once they see the predatory stance and massive 18-inch wheels and tires, they'll have to move in for a closer look. Built in 2007 and still looking good today, the paint and bodywork on this Camaro is flashy, no two ways about it. From the RS concealed headlights up front, to the ducktail spoiler out back, this car looks fast standing still. Gaps are good and someone definitely spent some time getting everything to line up properly, because on these cars you just can't cheat-that body line that runs between the wheel openings will give hack work away every time. Chrome and stainless have been restored or replaced with quality reproduction items, including all the badges and those cool inserts in the "gills" ahead of the rear wheels. And while purists know that the blacked-out rear panel is reserved for the SS396 cars, it just looks so cool we can't blame the guy who built this one for including it. The black bucket seat interior is also built to play. Nicely done with new seat covers, carpets and door panels, it's clean and fairly stock. Look a little closer and you'll see a few modifications that are in step with the upgrades under the hood, including a big tach on the steering column and a pair of Auto Meter gauges mounted on the console. Keeping an eye on temperature and oil pressure, these are the expensive mechanical gauges with a 270-degree needle sweep, not the cheaper and easier to install electric versions. You'll also note the center console was retained, but that the Hurst shifter now controls five gears instead of four. The original radio was retained, although it has been supplanted by a powerful Pioneer AM/FM/CD system that drives a pair of Infiniti 6x9s on the rear package shelf. As I mentioned, however, the real story on this one lives under the hood. The engine is a 383 cubic inch small block, renowned for big horsepower and torque production. All-new from GM Performance Parts, it sports a forged reciprocating assembly, GMPP aluminum heads, a polished Edelbrock intake, and a 4-barrel carburetor. Before slipping it between the fenders, the guys at T&L Engines gave it a coat of traditional Chevy Orange paint and dressed it up with a lot of jewelry. Custom valve covers were painted to match, and they really pop against those aluminum heads. Among the chrome items are an Edelbrock water pump, heavy-duty alternator, March billet aluminum brackets and serpentine pulleys, as well as a chrome power steering pump. Up front, a massive Afco aluminum radiator keeps the hot small block cool under the most demanding conditions. A Tremec 5-speed manual handles the gear changes, and the rest of the chassis has been upgraded for road duty. The floors were covered in textured paint to protect the car from abrasion, and there are a lot of new parts under there, including a fresh gas tank and a custom-built driveshaft. Two-inch dropped spindles and 3-inch lowering blocks were used to give this car its raked stance, and the wheelwells are nicely filled out by a set of 18-inch American Racing Torque Thrust II wheels wearing Nitto performance radials. There are a lot of nice '69 Camaros out there, but this one is truly a wolf in sheep's clothing. That stroked small block combined with the 5-speed makes a truly potent combination, and while the looks aren't exactly subtle, this is a 42-year-old car that can surprise some much newer hardware. Complete with receipts for the engine build and details on the components that went into it, this is a car you can buy and drive with confidence. With timeless good looks that will never go out of style, this is a car that you'll be able to enjoy for years to come. Call now!
