It's not often you come across a big block 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS that was ordered with all the right features and still carries them perfectly today. So from the numbers-matching L35 big block, to the close ratio four-speed, to the houndstooth seats – this is exactly how you wanted it new, which makes it even more desirable on this well preserved/restored classic. Even the low mileage is documented to be accurate!
This car inspires love/lust at every angle. The pristine shine of the factory-correct Tuxedo Black will make your heart race, and that's because the deep/dark paint was given a proper investment in a professional respray. So now it loves to radiate no matter if it's in the midday sun or the midnight moon. And while the black makes it sporty, the details make this one downright aggressive. The white D91 stripe draws even more attention to the blacked-out hidden headlight RS front end. The Rally wheels are even mounted on redline tires to keep the period-correct intimation factor going. There's a proper spoiler out back, and it's nice to see a stock hood with the correct velocity stack inserts. So as you look over every inch, you're going to discover a car that loves to look like an aggressive muscle machine, and yet, they paid special attention to making sure it respects its history.
Step inside, and this Camaro provides one of the coolest blends of premium and performance – all while remaining factory spec. For example, houndstooth bucket seats are an icon of these first-gen Camaros. They especially look great on this one where they have been properly recovered to look as crisp as the black and white on the exterior. This has the premium center console with the proper wood-like paneling. This draws attention to everything from the quad auxiliary gauge setup to the factory AM radio that's still on display. And while the presentation is great to show off, this one is also a true driver's machine. The grippy factory steering wheel gives you a great view of the large speedo and tach directly in front. And that Hurst shifter is just calling out for your right hand.
The big block L35 396 cubic-inch V8 neatly fills the engine bay with its advertised 325 horsepower. This is the original numbers-matching unit, and one glance at the highly detailed engine bay, and you'll see they made sure to have this very important showpiece displayed properly. Dark paint, crisp/correct hoses, and tidy wires all funnel your attention to the bold orange block in the middle. The bright chrome on the air cleaner as well as the valve covers all have the correct decals. If you like this kind of original appearance, then you'll love to know about how this SS coupe inhales deeply with a proper Rochester four-barrel carburetor, and exhales with that ideal big block authority out of the dual exhaust. And you're in control of it all thanks to the original Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. And there are more great driving features like power steering and power brakes w/ discs up front.
A coupe this significant need the right paperwork to back it all up. That's why it comes with the original dealer invoice, bill of sale, and info documenting all five owners of this Camaro. This is a bold big block that really respects its history. Don't miss your chance, call today!
