Here we have a 1969 Camaro SS 396/375hp that has received an unbelievable restoration. The quality of workmanship that went into this build is absolutely amazing. After spending weeks on a rotisserie the body was perfected from top to bottom before paint. The deep black paint looks like you could fall over in it. One of the best black paint jobs I have seen and it is show quality throughout the entire car, just look at the pictures of the bottom of the rockers, unbelievable! As you know black is very unforgiving on a car and will show any imperfections that exist. They car is laser straight all over and no imperfections are to be found. The Camaro has excellent seams and body alignment throughout with a perfect fit and finish. The bottom of the car is just as nice as the top side. All chrome, glass, stainless, and all weather stripping have all been replaced with new. The complete interior is of course all new also with new chrome hardware, gauges, interior lights and complete wiring throughout the car. The Camaro is a true big block X22 SS car with a CE 396/375hp engine backed by a Muncie 4 speed transmission and 12 bolt rear axle with 3.31 posi and disc brakes. The 396 is a 3969854 casting number with a GM aluminum intake and the correct 375hp heads (casting # 3964291) with mechanical lifters. The engine has been totally rebuilt along with the rest of the drive train and performs perfectly, fires right up with no smoke or hesitation and idles smoothly. The Camaro also features power steering and 4 wheel Z06 corvette power disc brake calipers and rotors. The wheels are 18" and 20" with new tires. This car runs and drives as good as it looks, very tight on the road with no shakes or rattles and nothing is more fun than shifting through the gears with a high revving big block and with the tone of the custom stainless Magnaflow exhaust system you will never turn on the radio.
