There aren't many vintage cars that say high performance better than a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS350. This particular Frost Green beauty features a healthy 350 V8 small block, an automatic transmission, sizzling paint, great options, and a very comfortable black interior. If you've been searching for a clean 1st generation Camaro that runs great, looks awesome, and is daily-driver friendly, this may very well be your car.
The neatly resprayed Code 59 Frost Green on the classic Camaro shape is indeed this car's factory correct color, and why mess with a good thing? Has anybody ever complained about an original Camaro? Never! Fortunately, the workmanship is quite good, so the shiny, silvery-green paint works with super straight bodywork to offer a combination that truly stands out and someone was sweating the details when it was going together. An SS hood with chrome louvers certainly helps, as does the front valance with integrated fog lights, and it's been treated to black hockey-stick stripes, one of three patterns available on early Camaros, and these particular stripes have been expertly applied with paint, not decals. The finish is of excellent driver quality and only shows minor imperfections, with a shine that turns heads everywhere it goes, further punctuated by the contrast provided from the black vinyl roof. Panel fit is quite good as well, with doors that close easily and a rather rare spoiler-free decklid that sits right and with those stripes stretching from nose to door, there's really no place for shoddy workmanship to hide. Nice chrome bumpers, including a set of rear bumper guards, look great against the light green paint and correct SS emblems have been installed in the usual locations, and the rear quarter gills let everyone know this is a top-dog '69.
Referring to the interior as being simply "refurbished" would do it a disservice - it's essentially 'new' everywhere you look. The black vinyl upholstery on the front buckets and rear bench seat carry that simple yet refined utilitarian pattern that was one of Chevy's most dynamic styling cues in its time and looks outright awesome over the expanse of fresh black carpeting below and matching door panels at the flanks. Take your position in the driver's seat and you'll find a dash area in front of you that's also looking great, with working gauges in the instrument cluster and a straight, supple looking dash pad on top showing no cracks or oxidation. Fresh woodgrain accents have been applied to the center console, which features a great looking and desirable horseshoe shifter that manages the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission below, and a set of white-faced Rallye gauges at the helm let everyone know this is high-performance machine. Options are somewhat limited, but you do get power steering and brakes, a tilt steering column, a retro-style modern AM/FM stereo that powers upgraded Pioneer 6x9 speakers in the decklid, seatbelts, and a heater/defrost unit. The rather rare optioned folding rear seat looks barely used, while out back the trunk has been neatly finished off with spatter paint that still shows off how solid this Camaro's sheetmetal really is.
Power comes from a strong and reliable 350 cubic inch V8 that is believed to be the small block that was born in this Camaro. The engine bay is nicely detailed and is detailed to stock specs, ranging from the snorkeled air cleaner to the Chevy Orange engine enamel on the valve covers and engine block itself. Up top, a stock intake carries a matching 4-barrel QuadraJet carburetor, fresh looking electrical helps it crank fast, and original exhaust manifolds feed into the dual exhaust below that sounds great. The small block starts right up with ease, it runs great like all small block Chevys, and you shouldn't be afraid to drive this one for many miles to come. Underneath, you'll find a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and can easily handle the small block's power, and it spins a 10-bolt rear end. Power steering greatly improves this Camaro's road manners, while power front disc brakes help it stop on a dime. The finishing touch is a set of original style 14-inch SS Mag wheels wearing 225/70/14 Dayton white-letter performance radials.
Some of our favorite cars are those that have been restored back-to-stock, and none are better than a '69 Camaro. These beauties never stick around with us for long, so give us a call today before it's gone!
