Stuffing a big block into just about anything is guaranteed to make for an entertaining ride. When it's a 1969 Camaro and you dress it up shiny Copper Metallic paint and a black interior, then you've really got something special. Built with a professional eye and attention to detail, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro restomod gives a nod to one of the most potent muscle cars of all time.
Seriously, if you could have a vintage Camaro built any way you wanted, isn't this pretty much what you'd wish for? The bodywork is in great shape and there's no mistaking that fantastic 1969 Camaro profile. The slick Copper Metallic paint obviously isn't this car's original color (that would be code 57 Fathom Green), but with those killer black SS stripes, who can argue with the results? A cowl-induction hood, chin-spoiler and ducktail spoiler at the bookends, and a Z/28 grille complete with fog-lights underneath make it look predatory, and you'll note that Z/28 badges were applied fore and aft for a super-cool look. There were no liberties taken with the Camaro's classic shape, and it offers a few upgrades like the big chrome wheels and polished wheel well moldings and rocker panel trim, both of which do a lot to really dress things up. It's not a perfect show-car, but it's really nice high-end driver and when it's hammering down the road everyone will want to be the guy behind the wheel, and from that vantage point, this car is nothing but exciting.
From behind the wheel, it is apparent this is a beautifully restored Camaro. Black vinyl interior always looks elegant and sporty, and the workmanship is excellent throughout. The seats show no real wear to speak of and are comfortable and supportive enough for long hauls, while the dash, door panels, carpet, and headliner barely looked touched. A wood-applique adorned center console features a horseshoe shifter for the sturdy TH400 3-speed automatic transmission underneath, and a 3-spoke steering wheel falls easily into the hands of the driver. Stock-spec gauges in the dash cluster really grasp the driver's attention, and the stereo system has been upgraded to a Kenwood AM/FM/CD head unit, but like many of the muscle cars we feature, the best music comes from under the hood and this car definitely fits the bill. The back seat barely looks used, and out back the spacious trunk is neatly finished with dark spatter paint for a very honest look.
Spectacular is one word for the mammoth 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. The powerful motor takes no prisoners and has some impressive horsepower, thanks to a bunch of go-fast parts carefully selected by the builders. It's also just docile and easy enough to manage in real-world traffic thanks to a performance intake, a Demon 4-barrel carburetor, long-tube headers, and a massive radiator that's assisted by a large electric fan. An MSD ignition system lights it all up instantly and a set of long-tube headers blow through Flowmaster mufflers to handle the exhaust. Beautifully dressed in polished aluminum valve covers and a chrome air cleaner, it neatly straddles the line between street and race yet excels at both. A-arms, power disc brakes, and a power steering system are all up front to provide a genuinely pleasant driving experience, in case you like a little refinement along with your brute torque. Chrome American Racing Torque Thrust wheels provide a modern, flashy look, and that bling is wrapped in 235/45/17 front and 245/40/18 rear performance radials.
If you're looking for a weaponized 1969 Camaro, look no further. Big horsepower in a slick package, this '69 is a head-turner ready to tear up some asphalt. Call today!
