This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is all about standing out. It has a
distinct color, desirable stick-shift interior, and obvious small
block power. So If you're ready for turn-key muscle car
distinction, keep reading...
Black Jade metallic is a terrific color that looks like a mean and slick black under our showroom light or lurking in the midnight shadows. But once the sunlight hits it, the green tones radiate to make this a standout amongst standouts. Investing in this coupe's fundamentals resulted in straight body panels to give this unique paint a straight an even canvas. Add in aggressive touches like the cowl hood, front air dam, and D80 rear spoiler, and this Camaro is the perfect machine to showcase classic intimidation. But the other part to a true American classic is brightwork. This seriously sinister appearance is balanced nicely with the shine of the bumpers and trim. In fact, the combination of darkness and light carries over to the wheels. The KMC 18-inch alloys are painted a deep black to contrast the brightwork shine and the unique Black Jade paint - a very cool touch.
You can instantly tell this Camaro wants to get down to business the moment you open the door. Black bucket seats coordinate nicely with the newer black carpeting, headliner, and dash. Your left hand is instantly attracted to the upgraded sports steering with Chevy bow tie etched in the center cap. Your right one loves the center console with Hurst shifter. There is an instant tingle before you turn the key because this Camaro has the atmosphere where you can feel that you're in control of a lot of power. So while this one has been upgraded with an AM/FM/CD stereo, we really know your favorite soundtrack will start under the hood.
The engine bay has a clean and mean attitude. The polished air topper and valve covers as well as the bold Chevy orange on the block all come together to radiate power from within the dark surroundings. And this performance feeling is more than just an appearance. Chevy's powerful 350 cubic-inch V8 has been further enhanced with a large Holley four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise performance intake, and long tube headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. Best of all, you have complete control over this muscular V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But because power is nothing without control, this one benefits from upgrades such as a drilled front disc brake package and new A-arm bushings in the front suspension. Add in power steering and the modern grip of Nitto NT555 tires, and you've a total power package that's easy to enjoy.
This Camaro is the year you love; the paint you crave; and all the performance you want. But you're not the only one who wants something this cool, so hurry up and call today!
