1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in Chevrolet
dealerships in September 1966 for the 1967 model year on a
brand-new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as
a 2-door, 2 plus 2 seat, hardtop (no "B" or center pillar) or
convertible, with the choice of either a straight-six or V8 engine.
The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model
This restored, and jam packed with power 1969 Z/28 clone version is
as beautiful as it is powerful. A shining example of taking an
amalgamation of performance parts and stuffing them into an iconic
body. Traction bars, rally wheels and a rear facing scooped hood
all added to a big sum of total muscle!
The recipient of a restoration with mostly straight sheetmetal and
decent panel alignment, this Camaro was given a respray in a nice
coating of burnt orange. Prior to the clear coating, wide silver
dual racing stripes were painted on. A rear facing scooped hood was
added to give some extra breathing and Z/28 badging was added to
the eggcrate grille, fenders and tail panel. Brightwork and badging
as well as bumpers and window trimmings are all looking shiny and
fab. On the back a small rear spoiler attached to the trunk lid and
just below is a pristine bumper framing the horizontal tail lights.
Deep dish 15-inch rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped
in deeply treaded BF Goodrich radial rubber.
Complimenting the exterior orange and silver stripes, we see a sea
of black nice condition vinyl. This is covering the door panels
which are nearly showroom, and the buckets which are high back
versions with large headrests attached. In the back is a black 2
plus 2 rear bench just as nice as the front buckets. In the center
is a black molded vinyl console and it sports a silver insert which
frames the T-handled Hurst floor shifter. Just in front of the
shift lever is a quad of cascading gauges to monitor engine vitals
and gives you a constant heads up reading of said numbers. The dash
is original and has a beautiful rosewood rimmed 3 spoke steering
wheel in front. Peering beyond the wheel are a pair of deeply
sunken gauges with warning lights below and a clock in the center.
Black carpeting in heavily faded condition, much which has faded to
orange, is on the floors and above is a slightly soiled black vinyl
headliner. We are ready to roll!
Under the scooped hood, now replacing the original 8 cylinder is a
350ci V8 circa 1969-1979, with its heartbeat provided by a Holley
4bbl carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold. A T10 4-speed manual
transmission is installed and sends power back to a 10-bolt PF
stamped rear axle with 2.73 gears and Positraction. Dressing up the
mill are chrome valve covers and an air cleaner lid by Edelbrock
along with a few other chrome accessories.
Unrestored but solid describes the underside with factory
undercoating and a mix of patina and surface rust. Headers run to a
stock mufflered dual exhaust that makes its way to the back of the
machine. Independent coil springs are on front and on back are leaf
springs to provide the muscle ride and power disc brakes are on
front, and power drums for the rear. All looking ready for some
action under here.
This car fired up with a mighty roar, and performed much like the
roar at the start. Out on the test track it had wonderful launching
from that first gear, and unlimited acceleration. The T10 manual
and Hurst shifter is snappy and working perfectly. Braking was
solid. Only 2 frowns crept up during our drive, the horn didn't
toot, and the front suspension has some noises that deem
All buttoned up interior and exterior, a Z28 clone car which
definitely looks and performs the part. Beautiful color combos, all
ready to roll in style and even add a bit of excitement to your
right foot. With a little bit of TLC and elbow grease this IS the
Camaro you need to own!
