This 1969 Camaro SS checks the right buttons for a Camaro fan. Black? Check. Houndstooth interior? Check. To get one better than this will take a lot more cash, and I'll bet that the owner of this car has a lot more fun behind the wheel than the guy who owns an uber-rare big block. There's a lot of truth to the adage that nothing looks better than black, especially on the timeless 1959 Camaro bodywork. The workmanship is quite good, and it's nice to see someone spending the long dollar on a car that's built for the road. Good panel gaps and proper alignment give it an awesome look, and the bold white SS stripes make it look aggressive, yet traditional. A cowl induction hood and a factory-style rear spoiler are always welcome, as are the chrome trim pieces in the rear quarter panel "gills." It's also nice to see a small block SS, complete with proper '350' badges on the front fenders. Chrome and stainless are very good, and all the glass remains in excellent condition. I don't know about you, but I think the houndstooth interior is about the coolest choice in a '60s muscle car that I can imagine. Upscale and sophisticated, but also a little bit crazy, it's the perfect choice in a black and white Camaro. The seat covers are accurate reproductions that have been fitted to the original buckets, as well as to the rear bench. Fresh door panels, new carpet with the correct weave, and a black headliner make it feel like a new car inside. The instruments appear to be original, including a factory tachometer, and they all work as they should. A column shifter is an unusual choice in an SS, but I dig the fact that you never see them configured like this and the factory definitely built them this way. A newer AM/FM/MP3 stereo system has been fitted and uses the original knobs for a very OEM-style installation. In 1969, the 350 cubic inch V8 was standard equipment in the SS and made a nice, round 300 horsepower. This one has been rebuilt to stock specifications and runs just the way the factory intended. And speaking of the factory, the detailing is OEM-grade as well, with a correct air cleaner and decals, Chevy Orange paint on the block, and cast iron exhaust manifolds. Of course, there are also a few notable upgrades, including the finned aluminum valve covers borrowed from a Z/28 and a modern alternator in the original brackets for improved performance and reliability. However, correct hoses and clamps were used throughout, which is a nice touch, and the wiring looks correct. Underneath, it's tight and solid, with a 10-bolt rear and a factory-style chambered exhaust that sounds downright predatory. There's also a set of beautiful Rallys wearing Firestone radials and a fresh gas tank. Clean, simple, and fully sorted, this is the kind of Camaro you've always wanted to own. Call today!
