For Sale: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Some cars can get by on looks alone, but this awesome 1969 Chevrolet Camaro coupe ably demonstrates that there's often substance under the style. Slick Tuxedo Black paint punched up with Red stripes, expertly laid over a sporty Garnet Red interior and all set on a killer raked stance, this dialed-in F-body hits all the right visual notes and then some. It's also quite a handful on the road (in all the best ways imaginable) with a potent ZZ383 Stroker V8 under the hood married to a quick-shifting 4-speed gearbox leading the way, but with power steering, power front discs, and an upgraded suspension keeping it planted on terra firma, it's also insanely fun and enjoyable to drive. And with only 6751 miles on this comprehensive, high-end build, the party's just getting started.

Looking like a heavyweight fighter stuffed into a finely tailored tuxedo, this legendary F-body is all dressed up with a blacked-out grille, aggressive chin spoiler, cowl hood, chrome quarter 'gills', and a ducktail spoiler out back - all choice add-ons that let everyone know this Camaro means business. Wearing fan-favorite Tuxedo Black paint (an upgrade over its original Garnet Red livery) and red LeMans-style stripes, people will definitely sit up and take notice every time this predator rolls by. You can see how smooth and flat the bodywork is in our photos; take note of how clear all the reflections are, and how slick those contrasting, painted-on red stripes look up against the sleek, black finish. The gaps are even, the lines are laser-straight, and the panel fitment is loads better than anything you'd see back in 1969. It's obvious the restorers spent copious amounts of time getting this beauty situated just right before any paint went on, and that's a good thing because black shows any mistake made along the way. With that said, we certainly haven't found much to complain about, short of a microscopic imperfection or two picked up in the last 6751 miles since the build was completed, but even then you better have 20/20 vision to spot them. Even with all the recent work the car takes on an accurate, vintage look, and because the builders decided to forgo all the usual fake SS add-ons, it stands out from the pack. They left plenty of chrome and shiny stainless trim on though, and it really pops with bright bumpers fore and aft, polished pieces all-around the glass, and slick-looking door hardware, side mirrors, and OEM-style badging.

Inside, the sporty cabin features front buckets and a rear bench seat wrapped in beautiful Garnet Red deluxe vinyl, and if you need evidence that GM interior stylists were hitting on all eight cylinders in 1969, you need look no further than this gorgeous Camaro. The bright seat covers duplicate the factory patterns, and the other stuff like the matching red door panels and plush red carpets are new to the build as well. The dash was completely restored and boasts a fresh red vinyl pad up top, Garnet Red paint on the exposed steel that's muted with black accents around the gauge bezel and grab bar, and replacement woodgrain applique that adds a touch of sophistication to the entire feel of the cabin. White-faced Dakota Digital gauges were swapped-in ahead of the driver and keep a closer eye on the upgraded drivetrain, and they're matched by a quartet of auxiliary units at the bow of the center console. That console was restored to the same level as the rest of the car, with more of that elegant red vinyl, bright chrome accents, and matching woodgrain applique, although it's tough to notice it all with the Hurst 4-speed shifter hogging all the attention. Options include a sporty Grant steering wheel, a Classic Auto Air A/C system that blows cold R134a-treated air throughout the cabin, and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit that provides the tunes. The switches just below control the NOS system, in case you really feel like traveling through time, and thankfully there are seatbelts fore and aft for when you do it. With so few miles on the build everything feels incredibly fresh inside, in fact we highly doubt the rear seats have ever carried passengers, and the trunk was neatly finished with an OEM-style plaid mat and still has plenty of room even with the mounted NOS bottle.

The engine is a 383 Stroker ZZ V8, detailed to dazzle inside the tidy engine bay and built to RUN. Augmented with AFR aluminum heads, Doug's ceramic-coated headers, a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an aluminum air-gap intake, and NOS system for when you really want to get squirrely, this is an insanely fast drivetrain. Maintained well over the last 7K miles and running great today, it includes black Chevrolet valve covers and a chrome open element air cleaner, while a serpentine belt system keeps all the accessories tight up against the powerful small block. It sparks to life every time thanks to a full MSD 6AL ignition system, breathes easy and sounds great through the Flowmaster dual exhaust system below (which can be turned up to '11' with the electric cut-outs engaged), and it stays nice and cool thanks to a giant aluminum radiator up front. The 4-speed gearbox is the perfect dance partner to the built 383 V8, spinning a heavy-duty 10-bolt rear end, and it stays planted to the road via a double-wishbone and swaybar set-up in the front and tubular traction bars and upgraded shocks in the rear. Power steering and power front disc brakes means this powerful Camaro is actually quite manageable, and it rides on a staggered set of American Racing Torque Thrusts wrapped in 235/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Hankook radials with plenty of grip left.

Take a good look, but we bet you'll have a hard time resisting this awesome Camaro. Call today!
