For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

If you're going to dream, dream big. Clearly someone wanted to build the ultimate Camaro and pulled out all the stops to create this stunning 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Tribute. With a thundering 454 V8 big block under the hood, a quick-shifting Muncie 4-speed gearbox managing the gears, and a gorgeous black-on-black color combination, this is the vintage Camaro we all wish we owned.

Seriously, if you could have a vintage Camaro built any way you wanted, isn't this pretty much what you'd wish for? First off, 1969 is the ultimate Camaro year, and once you find an example as solid as this, painting a sinister shade of black is almost the only reasonable choice. The bodywork is in great shape and there's no mistaking that fantastic F-Body profile that's perfected by this Camaro's styling. The slick black paint isn't this car's original color (that would be Code 65 Olympic Gold - so this is definitely one of those instances where changing the factory script improves the vehicle today), but when seeing the off-the-charts curb appeal of this muscle car, who can argue with the results? It's no longer a 'show pony', in fact the build is said to have been completed 20+ years ago, although those years shouldn't scare off a potential buyer but rather provide him with the confidence that when this car was put together, it was done the right way. It's obvious this Camaro has been extremely well cared for since it was restored -having most recently lived in a very prominent local collection - and as a strong driver-quality car today, it still shows very nicely. A cowl hood, ducktail spoiler, and white Z/28 stripes make it look predatory, and you'll note that the front fenders wear '427' emblems to warn off any potential challengers. There were no liberties taken with the Camaro's classic shape, and it offers a few upgrades like the chin spoiler and fog light set-up in the front, the polished wheel well moldings and rocker panel trim at the sides, and the big Hurst badge out back, all of which do a lot to really dress things up. It's not a perfect trailer queen, but when it's hammering down the highway everyone will want to be the guy behind the wheel, and from that vantage point, this car is nothing but exciting.

From behind the wheel, there's no way to tell that this isn't a beautifully restored, stock Camaro. Black Camaro interiors seem to always looks elegant and sporty, and despite the age of the restoration the workmanship is still in very good condition throughout. A wood applique adorned center console features a cue-ball topped Hurst shifter that manages the 4-speed manual below, and the upgraded wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel at the helm is a perfect dance partner. Beyond the steering wheel lay a set of factory gauges, although with the upgraded motor under the hood, the rally-pack style gauges at the head of the center console keep a closer eye on the vitals. Options are fairly sparse, but you do get power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes, seatbelts, a working heater/defrost unit, and an upgraded AM/FM/AUX stereo that was neatly installed inside the factory slot. All the black upholstery on the seats and door panels is in great shape, showing only minor signs of use and age (most of which are limited to the driver's seat), and the matching black carpets and headliner insulate the cabin from the outside world. The back seat likely hasn't seen a passenger this decade and still feels very fresh, while out back the surprisingly spacious trunk houses a full-size spare tire and shows off super-solid pans covered in factory-style spatter paint.

Brutal is one word for the mammoth 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. Fitted with a lopey (but not over-the-top) cam, a steel crank, SpeedPro dome pistons, and larger valve springs, the motor takes no prisoners and is ready to rip torque through the asphalt. It can also be remarkably docile and easy to manage in real-world traffic thanks to an Edelbrock aluminum intake and a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor up top, and with a recent set of long-tube header feeding into a throaty Magnaflow X-pipe dual exhaust system, the soundtrack is fantastic. Dressed to resemble the stock big blocks of the late 1960's, the engine itself was coated in Chevy Orange enamel and adorned with polished valve covers and a matching chrome open-element air cleaner, and with an upgraded HEI ignition and giant radiator up front, it can easily handle regular driving. Power 4-wheel disc brakes and power steering tame this beast for a more pleasant driving experience, although the Muncie 4-speed gearbox is certainly forgiving if you really want to put your foot into it, and leaf springs out back do their best to plant the power coming from a beefy 12-bolt rear end. Bright American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are always a timeless look on a 1st gen Camaro, and this one wears modern-sized 215/70/15 front and 245/60/15 rear Mickey Thompson white-letter radials for a pure look.

If you're looking for a slick, weaponized, big block Camaro, look no further. This black '69 has lots of pop, and style for days. Call today!
