1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
During the design and initial construction of the Camaro, the car
had the name "Panther". The 1965 concept bore the Panther emblem,
and it retained the name until just a few weeks before the car
debuted. However, Chevy always intended to give its Mustang
competitor a "C" name to conform to its Corvette, Chevelle, and
Corvair models. When asked what does the name Camaro mean, one of
the GM brass replied, it's a car that eats Mustangs!
For consignment, a rotisserie restoration that was done over a long
time in our consignor's garage. Don't be fooled though it is very
professionally done, and now this car is a screamer resto-mod. One
of the finest years in this writer's opinion, and a definite fine
job done on all aspects of this beautifully done job. I'm putting
the napkin around my neck, ready to feast on a Mustang!
Painstaking hours of putting new sheet metal on the outside save
for the right outer rocker and trunk lid, then sanding prepping and
making sure gaps are near perfect, then all inner structures
sandblasted and primed where needed. The immaculate coating of
Sherwin Williams Ultra 7000 Viper Red, code 45963, and some
striping painted in SW Dimension paint code 5B-39393, a satin back.
Extra body mods include a custom lower front valance, a smoothed
firewall, and the rear body panel has molded in backup lamp and
exhaust cutouts. A small spoiler is also attached to the trunk lid
and continues the satin stripe. All straight steel with well minded
gaps throughout. Forgeline GZ3 18x8 with 4.87 BS graphite wheels in
front, and Forgeline GZ3 18 x 11.6 with 6-inch BS graphite all
wrapped in low profile BFG 18 inch rival rubber.
All custom by Vinny's interiors in New Britain, PA. Doors have a
gray insert tuck and roll vertical panel, surrounded by black vinyl
and a Viper Red thin trimming just on the edge of the black and
gray tuck and roll. Inside black and gray buckets from a 2002
Firebird are now in and looking snappy with their red edge piping.
A 2 plus 2 rear bench is in and also has the same tuck and roll and
red edge piping. There's a full coverage dash pad, and a custom
console racing through the buckets in the center featuring billet
cup holders and some LED number readouts for the tranny gear.
Detroit speed provides the dash panel with Autometer gauges. A Momo
steering wheel fronts this dash and sits atop a Flaming River
steering column. Vintage Air is now installed, and tinted glass
keeps the sun at a minimum. The seats have Morris Classic Concept
3-point seat belts and floating above the pristine black carpeting
lit with cool LED interior under dash lighting, are Modo
Innovations pedal coverings.
The engine is a 2007 LY6 6.0 liter bored .030 over with forged Ccat
H bream connecting rods and SRP pistons. A Texas Speed 228 cam with
LS7 lifters is in and all ARP fasteners have been utilized. The
mill was built by Stauffers Automotive Machine, has Holley engine
mounts and Hooker Blackheart stainless headers. Also, Holley valve
coverings and an LS3 intake and throttle body. Not your typical
Camaro HUH?? On the back is a 4L60E 4-speed automatic with a FTI
3200 RPM stall converter. Finalizing the drivetrain is a Ford
9-inch 3.70 posi rear axle. All presenting beautifully and dyno
proven at 370.2 horses.
Nearly as beautiful as the topside, and with independent coil
springs for the front with SPC front lower control arms and Global
West upper front control arms. A 4 link with coil over rear
suspension features Detroit Speed Quadralink. C5 front disc brakes
and Wilwood rear disc brakes are now bringing this machine to a
All I can say it's an E ticket ride (Disney does not rate their
rides like this anymore but compare it to the rockin roller
coaster, or space mountain, or the dreaded Yeti if you get my
drift, and this car will do that too, but I did not! Our only frown
was that the right rear power window was inoperable.
With a binder of paperwork, and dyno results, as well as a nifty
photo book documenting the process, this car is a must see in
person, and I'd venture to say one of the nicest 69 Camaros gracing
our hallowed halls, and there are many to choose from and compare
to. Come on down! Mustang lunch anyone??!
