We get excited about cars like this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 true X22 code hardtop because they check all the hot buttons for collectors: big block power, four-speed manual transmission, awesome color, and factory A/C. It's one of those cars that everyone can agree is flat-out cool, and it does everything so well, you'll be finding reasons to drive it as often as possible.
Hugger Orange is an icon all on its own. It debuted for 1969, and its aggressive tone perfectly captured the essence of the Camaro. In fact, only around 12% were painted this at the factory, but many more were given this hue later in life. That's why it's so important to find an original code 72 original Hugger Orange car like this. The luster is exactly how you want it for car show lawns thanks to a professional respray that occurred during the coupe's restoration. All that money invested in this Camaro also made sure the body was kept amazingly straight and clean. This is a code X22 which is evidence that it's a real-deal SS396. With white SS hockey stick stripes just to make it stand out, beautifully finished with chrome bumpers, gill inserts on the quarters, optional bright wheel arch moldings, cowl hood, D80 ducktail spoiler, and correct emblems throughout... If you're looking for a great-looking muscle machine, they don't come much nicer than this.
More investment in this Camaro is evident the moment you open the door. The clean black vinyl interior epitomizes Camaro cool in 1969 and looks timeless today. Using correct reproduction seat covers, it's exceptionally comfortable with the desirable center console. The black headliner, door panels, and carpets are so clean and pristine that we know they received plenty of attention in the restoration, too. Your passengers will stay happy with the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo system and factory air conditioning. But the best treats are reserved for the driver. It starts with the Chevy's performance three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the classic large AC speedo and tach. Just to the side of that is the Hurst shifter set into the woodgrain center console, and there are also the iconic quad auxiliary gauges in this setup.
When people look under the hood of an X22 car they want to see the engine bay filled with V8 power, and this one does not disappoint. The 396 cubic-inch big block looks fantastic in the black engine bay with all its bright elements like the polished valve covers, shining 396 air grabber, and bold Chevy orange block. But more than just for show, this motor was made to go. That's why it has performance enhancements like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand Stealth intake, MSD Blaster SS ignition, and Hooker long tube headers. That last one also really helps the rumbling Flowmaster dual exhaust announce to the world that you've got big block power without lifting the hood. You get complete control over the sound and fury of this package thanks to the Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission. But more than just a pure speed machine, it is also easy to live with. You can see from the undercarriage shots that the suspension has been given the proper attention during restoration, and there's an electric fan to keep this Camaro running cool even if you have the A/C on in traffic. Plus, with features like power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich tires on those proper Chevy SS wheels, this is an easy choice to enjoy anytime.
If you've been looking for just the right combination of quality, originality, and power, this '69 Camaro SS definitely delivers. Call today!!!
