Awesome paint, an A/C interior, and a numbers-matching V8 enhanced
for extra power are all part of an irresistible package that this
recently restored 1969 Chevrolet Camaro offers.
This car has spent over 20 years under same owner, but it has gone
less than 400 miles since completing its restoration. So you get
the best of both worlds: long term care and a fresh build feeling!
The panels were expertly painted with factory correct shade of
Azure Turquoise, leaving the coupe with a crisp and clean
appearance with a smooth modern clearcoat luster. The shiny paint
works with super straight bodywork to offer a combination that
truly stands out on arguably the most iconic body style for the
Camaro. This distinction is only heightened by the iconic dual
racing stripe package. They were part of the plan from the
beginning, and so these were laid down with the basecoat to make
sure nothing gets in the way of the light rolling evenly across the
whole car. And the bumpers, rockers, and all the trim have the same
awesome level of smoothness and shine to make sure people keep
talking about this car long after it pulls away. There are even
nice sporty details, like the D80 rear spoiler and competition
style torque thrust wheels.
When you open the door, you're instantly reminded that the
restoration budget was about getting everything looking fresh.
That's why the factory-correct full black interior looks and feels
so nice. The bucket seats, carpeting, door panels, dash, headliner,
and all the other essentials have the impression of quality. It
really looks correct, right down to the mat in the trunk. But the
resonation was not strictly about keeping this factory. There are
well-integrated worthwhile upgrades in comfort, like the
retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with aux input, and this now has
modern cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. And items like the
Chevy sports steering wheel, auxiliary gauge trio, and large
column-mounted tach are all part of a better driver's package.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 307 cubic-inch V8. The fresh
look here may just be the largest reminder of how few miles are on
this restoration. The smooth color-matched firewall, bold orange
block, shining valve covers, matching air topper, and very tidy
hoses and wires are all part of a look that will have you lifting
the hood with pride at the car shows. But this was made for far
more than just a showcase. The V8 was upgraded with Summit Racing
heads, a four-barrel carburetor, and an Edelbrock midrise intake.
Plus, those long tube headers that add even more power as they
contribute to the rumble of the large 2.5-inch dual exhaust. The
Saginaw three-speed manual transmission is also original to the
car, and it's a cool old-school way to keep you in control of this
strong motor. This is a Camaro that's meant to keep you in in firm
connection with the road, but it still has nice driving features
like front disc brakes and modern sport tires. Plus, the fresh look
of the undercarriage is a reminder that this is one you can drive
Complete with owner's manual, this is the Camaro that was restored
with more of an eye for love than budget. That makes it one of the
sleekest and freshest coupes you can get your hands on right now.
