How do you take one of America’s most iconic, desirable, and sought after Pony/Muscle Cars, and improve upon it? 20-30 years ago, there might not have been a good answer for that question.
Today, however; we have so many excellent choices, and ideas for building cars that the answer to that loaded question could be this example of the 1969 Camaro you see right here.
Quality built, with quality components throughout, this ’69 Camaro is set up just the way we like them!
The story is, this Camaro was born as a true SS, 4 speed car, all of those original components are gone, but the SS spirit lives on in this ultra strong, ultra fun to drive, and of course, now very reliable, finely built modernized Classic car.
I can’t emphasize enough, the quality of build this particular Camaro was treated too. Everything on or about this car works together in concert to provide one of the most fun and exciting classic cars to drive.
Hop in this Camaro and you’re greeted with comfortable confidence. Turn the key to light the LS1, push in the easy hydraulic clutch, ease the Hurst shifted Tremec into gear #1, and you’d swear you’re prepared for a road-race just pulling out of the driveway.
The Camaro is low-slung and lean, and the clean mono-tone silver paint with the Torque Thrust wheels give this Camaro an aggressive, if not angry look and vibe.
The engine and drive-train are strong, and the fully independent suspension front and rear, absorbs the corners like most Musclecars wish they could!
All of the Autometer gauges function properly, all of the lights work, and for that matter, all of the accessories function properly too.
A lot of subtle, wise touches in, around, and under this Camaro give it a unique, well thought out, fun and easy car to drive anywhere, anytime!
If you have the desire for a classic muscle car, but you want the comfort, convenience, and performance of some of today’s high performance offerings, this 1969 Camaro is truly the best of all worlds.
