For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Some cars can get by on looks alone, but this awesome 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute coupe demonstrates that there's often substance under all that abundant style. Slick Cortez Silver paint with Black stripes set on a killer-looking raked stance, a sporty houndstooth interior that improves upon the classic look, and flashy chrome rolling stock - this one hits all the right visual notes. Still, with a potent 350 V8 crate under the hood, a slick-shifting 5-speed gearbox, and a disc brake at every corner, it's not just handsome. It's a performance piece as well.

Looking like a heavyweight fighter in a neatly pressed tuxedo, this legendary F-body is all dressed up with a muscular cowl hood, chin spoiler, and ducktail spoiler out back. Wearing Cortez Silver and Black stripes (an upgrade over the car's original Code 59 Frost Lime livery), it's dressed essentially just like a true 1969 Z/28 would be, and trust us, people will sit up and take notice every time this predator rolls in. You can see how smooth and flat the bodywork is in our photos; take note of how clear the reflections off the basecoat/clearcoat finish are and how slick those Z/28-style stripes lookup against the silver - the car takes on a very killer, vintage look indeed. It's a driver-quality Camaro that was finished back in 2010 - top-end driver quality for sure - and even the minor imperfections (that can only be seen upon close examination) could easily be remedied with a professional buff-and-wax. Hence, trophy hunting at your regional car show is definitely on the menu. Excellent paint starts with great bodywork, and the sheetmetal on this beauty is nice indeed, with laser-straight panels, great gaps, and doors that shut flush with a lovely, solid THUD. Of course, all the Z/28 goodies are in place, including the blacked-out front grille, fog lights in the front valence, the chrome quarter 'gills,' and proper Z/28 in all the right places. Flashy brightwork glitters like high-end jewelry, starting with the one-piece bumpers fore and aft, the wheel arch and rocker panel moldings at the flanks, and all the shiny stuff surrounding the car's crystal-clear glass and lighting. This is dialed-in F-body done right.

The upgraded interior features a super-cool set of sculpted, aftermarket front buckets and a rear bench seat wrapped in beautiful black-and-white Houndstooth upholstery. It's a modern take on the original Houndstooth interiors, but the sporty seats are incredibly clever and flow perfectly with the rest of the cabin. The high-end seat covers duplicate the factory patterns, and the other important stuff, like the black door panels, plush black carpets, and taut black headliner, are relatively new, too, so the entire cabin feels fresh. You'll also note an exciting combination of old and new features in this one, including a substantial, leather-rimmed three-spoke wheel with a polished center and a cue-ball topped Hurst shifter inside the middle console joined by a quartet of white-face Autometer gauges just ahead of it. In keeping with the theme, a pair of upgraded white-faced AutoMeter gauges were swapped inside the factory bezel ahead of the driver, and they all work in unison to keep a close eye on the upgraded engine up ahead. There's also a great-sounding Sony Xplod AM/FM/CD/AUX/BT stereo in the factory dash slot, and it pumps tunes through the upgraded speakers in the kick panels, 6x9 speakers in the package tray, and a thumping subwoofer and amplifier in the trunk. Other options include seatbelts fore and aft, power windows, color-keyed carpeted floormats, and an upgraded R134 A/C system that blows nice and cold. Out back, the trunk is very clean and features custom panels that house the speaker system, thick, durable carpets on the floors, and a full-size spare tire.

The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 crate block detailed to dazzle and covered in high-performance goodies and slick trim that have it ready for show. We haven't been inside the block to measure the bore and stroke, but it's reported to have been punched up to a 383 V8 and certainly sounds like it has a bit of a cam inside, and when coupled with aluminum heads and Doug's headers it's a mighty beast-maintained well and running great. It includes black Chevrolet valve covers, chrome open-element air cleaner, and a billet March serpentine system that runs a chrome alternator and polished R134a A/C compressor. The responsive engine fires right up and provides plenty of power and is fed by a GM Performance Parts aluminum high-rise intake and Holley 4-barrel carburetor, along with an HEI ignition and Painless wiring harness that lights it all up. A giant aluminum radiator with an electric fan keeps all that pop in control, so feel free and save your heavy foot. The Tremec 5-speed manual transmission is a perfect dance partner to the powerful small block, spinning a rugged Moser 12-bolt rear-end stuffed with an Eaton positraction setup with 3.73 gears. Long-tube headers feed an H-pipe exhaust with dual Flowmaster mufflers to give it the most spectacular baritone voice this side of the Metropolitan Opera House. You can see that virtually everything under the car has been freshened. There are Hotchkis springs, a big sway bar up front, upgraded shocks and suspension in the rear, and power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes that ensure an incredible driving experience. Slick 17-inch Cragar S/S wheels wear staggered 225/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear BFGoodrich radials that finish the awesome look.

Please look, but I think you'll have difficulty resisting this fantastic Camaro Z/28 Tribute. Slick F-Bodies like this never last long, so call today!
