Your nostalgia takes the best things and makes them even better, and that's exactly what this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 Convertible does. It's a correct X66 Super Sport droptop that has been upgraded with iconic paint, four-wheel disc brakes, a performance suspension, an even more potent big block, and much more. So dig into the details on this full frame-off restored rolling nostalgia.
There's just something about a Hugger Orange Camaro. It's bold enough to warn others on the streets "don't mess with me!" and it just seems to be a beacon at car shows. This one is particularly nice because the color has been applied with a very professional hand over well-fitting panels. That's what you get when you find an expertly restored car. The black SS hockey stick stripe is a nice contrast against the bold paint. It's part of a well-coordinated dark side that includes the SS grille, chin spoiler, rear fender accents, and rear panel. And the newer black folding roof adds to this appeal, too, and it's always nice for a convertible to look striking even when the roof is in place. This real-deal Super Sport has the right details, like the faux velocity stacks on the hood, full SS badging, and D80 ducktail spoiler. Of course, on an icon like this you need proper brightwork. So it's shining nicely with the attention paid to chrome bumpers during the restoration, and they even upgraded it to polished 17-inch alloys.
Because the black looks so nice against the Hugger Orange, you get a clean full black interior. There was a big investment here so that the seats, door panels, dash pad, and so much more feels new and fresh. It all follows a factory-style presentation, but if you look closely, you'll also spot some well-integrated upgrades. For example, the quad auxiliary gauge package in the center console is now a crisper set of SunPro readouts. And the classic-style button-top bucket seats have been given plenty of comfy modern bolstering. Chevy's classic sports steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach. And that bright Hurst shifter is just like a beacon calling out for your right hand in this driver's machine.
The dark engine bay funnels all your attention to the bold and bright big block in the middle. The X66 trim tag tells us this is a real-deal SS 396, so it's great to have what appears to be a year-correct 396 cubic-inch big block finished to such a high standard. More than just look great, this one has been upgraded with the right go-fast goodies. It includes a Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, a large Griffin aluminum radiator, and long tube headers that feed a rumbling 3-inch dual exhaust. You have full control over this enhanced big block power and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath the car, it reminds you of the full freshness of this frame-off build. You'll also spot upgrades like the narrower Ford 9-inch rear, four-link rear suspension, and Koni coilovers. Plus, power steering, modern grippy ZR-rated tires, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes give you firm control over it all.
The sale comes complete with a book full of restoration photos, so you can follow this car's full journey. It all proves that, just like your nostalgia, this is a great icon that lives up to your enhanced dreams. Call today!!!
