Vehicle Description

In pretty much every conceivable way, this is flat-out the right way to build a pro-touring F-body. Take one gorgeous 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, cover its laser-straight sheetmetal with gorgeous blue metallic paint with a deeply embedded pearlescence mixture, and bury it under gallons of silky smooth clearcoat. Add a strong-running 430 cubic-inch V8 LS3 motor, a built Phoenix 4L80ESS transmission, and a pavement-hugging performance suspension that manages the F-body like a modern car. Finish with an exotically tasteful leather interior that keeps the spirit of what was great about the original design but adds the splendid benefits of modern tech. The result is one of the nicest '69 Camaro restomods we've ever had the privilege to feature, with a scant 55 break-in miles on the build (45 test and tune miles; 10 actual drive-time miles). If you're looking for the best, then your search is over.

The vivid Blue Pearl Metallic paint is the first thing that grabs you about this car, a show-stopping finish that's bound to win trophies on its own merit, regardless of the level competition. A custom blend of World Touring Class Blue, it's incredibly well-executed and shows the result of 2400+ hours of labor-intensive ministrations with a deep shine and excellent finish work for a distortion-free surface. On brightly colored cars, gaps are important, and they're excellent here, as is the rest of the sheetmetal that's straight enough to set your compass to. And we love that they decided to forgo any stripes or decals, instead letting that magnificent ocean of pearl blue do all the talking. Regardless of whether it was born as a real SS or Z/28, all the desirable performance details are there, from the aggressive lower front valance decked out with oval fog lights and a chin spoiler, the blacked-out grille just above it, to the custom LED taillights and ducktail spoiler out back - so it's got a great performance look that let's everyone know this isn't some ordinary Sunday cruiser. Billet trim around the all the lights matches the billet-sculpted door handles, while the chrome bumpers fore and aft sparkle marvelously against the blue paint to provide just enough contrast to appease the artist in all of us. The performance look is enhanced further by the oversized wheels and aggressive stance, and with new brightwork and weather stripping all-around, anyone can immediately tell that this was a serious build.

Inside, the elegant custom interior was given a comprehensive makeover from end-to-end, starting with a set of sporty high-back buckets seats wrapped in Pelle Fresco Cinnamon Italian leather. There's also a matching console that was created just for this car, and it houses a Lokar shifter for the built automatic transmission below. Alcantara Hazelnut upholstery on the dash pad lets everyone know this is a high-end car right away, and the custom suede headliner above continues that sentiment. Against the bright blue paint, the Cinnamon shade of the interior really works well, but there's nothing in there that looks out of place. Everything's new, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. A comprehensive DSE gauge panel houses a full complement of digital/analog gauges from Auto Meter, along with controls and vents for the Vintage A/C unit - and they were engineered and installed so efficiently that none of it seems cramped, instead it just makes us wonder why more builds don't utilize the space like this more frequently. A sporty , leather-wrapped steering wheel feels great in the hands of the driver, and the Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX/Bluetooth head-unit just beyond it powers aftermarket speakers installed throughout the interior. The rear seat has probably never been used, the door panels are custom and fit the theme of the interior perfectly, the carpets are plush, and the interior cabin was insulated with Dynamat materials. Quite simply, everything was addressed inside and everything is fresh. Even the trunk is beautifully finished with matching carpets, and has plenty room for all the trophies this Camaro will earn.

Under the hood, the stout 430 cubic inch V8 LS3 is built for combat inside and dressed for show on the outside, featuring a shiny red block with paint-matched blue valve covers and an LSX intake, and chromed and polished billet accessories everywhere you look, all up against the bright blue canvas of the detailed inner fenders and shaved firewall. Professionally built to produce 458 horses to the rear tires, the all-aluminum motor features Crower rods and crank, Mahle pistons, a Holley oil pan, Hooker headers, Vintage Air accessory drive, a Speartech ECU, and an aluminum radiator up front that all add up to a very impressive powerplant that can slug it out in the streets or take it easy on the weekends. And with just a few shake-down miles, it's still very fresh and pulls the Camaro around like it suddenly lost 1000 pounds. Of course, the Phoenix 4L80ESS transmission with its 3000 RPM stall convertor makes a huge impact on the car's roadability, with a towering overdrive that lets that big block just loaf along at highway speeds. Underneath, it's finished for show and ready for combat with a custom TCI tubular front suspension and DSE 4-link rear suspension featuring coilovers all-around, big sway bars fore and aft, a 9-inch rear end with 3.73 gears, and power rack-and-pinion steering and Wilwood power 4-wheel disc brakes that make driving this '69 an absolute dream. All that tech is neatly hidden behind a set of slick 18-inch US Mag wheels, which carry staggered 235/40/18 front and 335/30/18 rear performance radials that fill the fenders perfectly and set the aggressive stance.

This car is the right combination of style, substance, and performance, making it one of the most appealing early Camaros we've seen in a while. Call today!
