This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 tribute has been done with
sleek paint, a terrific color combo, four-on-the-floor, and an even
bigger big block under the hood. So it's a sharp, powerful, and
absolutely awesome build.
This is a mean machine, and so it looks terrific in a dark color.
The dark blue is the product of professional application in 2016.
It's deep enough to look like black at night, but in the daylight,
there's a nice metallic element that really pops to bring you added
attention. As you look over the whole car, you'll see there's a
deeper attraction. It has been with the same owner for about 35
years. So when it came time for the restoration, there was added
attention, love, and investment in this coupe. The clean glass,
clear lenses, pliable weather-stripping, and the way the panels fit
all remind you of the difference that comes from long-term care.
Even brightwork elements like trim, chrome bumpers, and emblems
shine beautifully. As a tribute to the meanest Camaros around, this
one has the right performance style. This includes the cowl hood,
chin spoiler, full-width rear spoiler, and Rally Sport hidden
headlight front end (currently not working, need to be manually
opened). And the dark paint means you can distinctly see the dual
white stripes painted on top.
The parchment white interior looks like it almost radiates from
within the dark exterior, and on this one, it even coordinates with
the white exterior stripes. There was a nice investment here
getting it looking correct and bright on the seats, door panels,
and headliner. This has a classic look everywhere with nice
details, including the wood-like trim and headrests. And the AM/FM
digital tuner w/cassette means better driving music. There are all
the best pieces in place for a driver's classic. This means bucket
seats up front, a center console in-between, a classic grippy SS
steering wheel, and a Hurst shifter. The Chevy SS steering wheel
gives you that classic grippy feel. Plus, those AutoMeter auxiliary
readouts and Sport-Comp II tach w/shift light on the steering
column are clear indicators that you're going to love what's under
The engine bay has a fresh and tidy look that tells this coupe has
been given a solid investment everywhere. While the badges on the
fenders say 396, this is actually a LARGER 454 cubic-inch V8 big
block motor. Plus, this has the right performance components, like
a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake, and
long tube headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. You even have
good supporting components like the Griffin aluminum radiator and
an Optima red top battery in the trunk for better weight
distribution. The four-speed manual transmission gives you firm
control over this powerhouse as it feeds the 12-bolt rear end. This
is the kind of car that wants you to really feel the road, but it
also wants to feel solid with the right features like subframe
connectors, traction bars, a coil spring rear, and a 3.73
Positraction rear end.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the distinctive and powerful
restored Camaro coming off of long-term care. It's the icon that's
done right. Call today!!!
