It goes without saying that power is a prized commodity in muscle
cars, yet the term is subjective - unless the power in question
attains the otherworldly levels featured in this 1969 Chevrolet
Camaro Pro Touring. With its unusually potent drivetrain and high
impact appearance, it's a one of a kind specimen that's sure to
turn heads wherever it goes, and is capable of providing a truly
unique driving experience.
Certainly no shrinking violet, this unusually powerful Camaro is clad in its original shade of Daytona yellow, a flashy hue that's fitting for a ride with its capabilities. The attention-grabbing exterior is looking good, with a nice, even shine under a great clearcoat. Those signature black Z28 stripes are no mere decals - they're painted on and look impressively fresh, with sharp edges and no sign of fading. They reside on a cowl induction Z28 hood that's has been ramped up a few notches in the elevation department, a well-executed modification free of the Frankenstein-ish seams you often encounter with such an aggressive change, and whose expansive clearance also serves notice of the incredible power that's sitting just underneath. This Camaro's appeal goes beyond merely making a strong statement, as it's also a finished looking car. Its chrome trim on all sides is in good shape and the other prominent modification - front and back bumpers painted to match the rest of the exterior - has been done with exacting preparation, so that there's no sign of peeling paint, likely the first thing you'd expect with such an alteration.
The interior features the same theme featured outside - an aggressive look that's been attained while largely keeping the original configuration and identity of this Chevy classic. Open the door and climb inside, and you're surrounded by a high impact, yellow interior with an undeniable abundance of flash, but still largely in its stock form. The bucket seats in front, with their familiar low-backed shapes intact, as well as the bench seat in back, are covered in houndstooth check and are very comfortable, with plenty of life left in them. Underneath lies an expanse of fresh black carpeting that's punctuated by a pair of Tweety Bird floor mats. Just in front of the Grant GT steering wheel perched on a tilt column, the dash area is certainly more vibrant than it started out but it, too, remains mostly untampered in form, and its array of stock gauges and controls are still intact - joined by a set of four additional aftermarket ProComp gauges sitting up front in the center console. Just to the side of the steering wheel, an AM/FM/CD player with USB connectivity sits ready to take care of your audio needs.
Below the cowl induction hood sits as spectacular a powerplant as you're likely to come across - a 632 cubic inch, stroked V8 from BluePrint Engines. You'd rightfully expect a lot of power from displacement of this magnitude, but this singular engine - armed with an Edelbrock manifold and suitably gargantuan-sized Holley 1050cfm carb and paired with a stout PowerGlide 2-speed automatic transmission which is perhaps the ultimate in bracket racing consistency - goes far beyond expectations, churning out an incredible 815 horsepower (not a misprint) and 800 lb./ft. of torque and yet still able to run on pump gas. The tough-as-nails 12 bolt rear end by Strange features 3.73 posi gears. Equipped with power steering, power brakes and a Hotchkiss suspension, this Camaro's prowess goes beyond merely straight-line acceleration. This supremely powerful Chevy classic sits on a set of 20" Boss Motorsports chrome rims carrying Nitto NT555 radials.
