How do you define the ultimate 1969 Chevy Camaro? How about a restomod that offers a performance-built 500+ hp big block, five-speed sick, and the right suspension upgrades to handle all the extra power? Now wrap it in the iconic pace car droptop appearance. Yup, the ultimate Camaro is up for grabs.
This one is designed to make a bold impression from every angle. It starts with the exterior that has all the best pace car livery... with a bit extra. After all, the gloss and shine on the pristine white paint is something the factory could never give you. And those Hugger Orange stripes are bold enough to glow in the dark. This one has all the right Super Sport features like the low front air dam, fog light valance, all the badging, cowl induction hood, and the famous D80 full-width rear spoiler. Add in the iconic RS package with the blacked-out grille and headlights hidden behind the triple-slot door, and you know you instantly have a classic Camaro that belongs in Indy's Victory Lane. But those 502 fender callouts and the Billet Specialties alloys (staggered 17/18-inches front/rear for the perfect stance) also instantly let everyone know this one has far more power and flair than even a pace car.
Beneath the pristine white folding top is the orange houndstooth interior. The investment in the bold and fresh orange on the bucket seats, door panels, and boot cover make this one feel legendary. And you'll love all the performance Camaro touches like the three-spoke wood steering wheel and the quad auxiliary gauge package at the top of the center console. But from the moment you step inside, you also know this is something quite special. Everything from the cup holder center console, to the clear AutoMeter gauges tell you this has been given all the right upgrades. And that's even before you spot the extra gear on the Hurst shifter.
Stuffing Chevy's 502 cubic-inch big block crate motor in between the fender walls wasn't enough for this serious street machine. This monster motor has been taken apart, balanced, and fortified with upgrades like aluminum oval 110cc heads, roller cam, and 9.6:1 compression. It features an Edelbrock 800 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, MSD ignition, aluminum radiator, and Patriot headers. There's so much more to list, but we just don't have the room (call for all the details.) Just know that this V8 is rated at 502hp and 567 lb-ft of torque, and the world knows this power superiority thanks to the thunderous rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust. But to make a good restomod, it requires more than a modern upgrade in power. You get to harness this V8 with an upgraded Richmond five-speed transmission that features a Centerforce clutch and Lakewood bell housing. This feeds a 12-bolt Positraction rear end running 3.08 gears for good all-around performance. And for more of the best parts of this restomod you need to check out the undercarriage photos. There you'll spot plenty of upgrades, including Heidts upper & lower control arms, new bushings, thick sway bars front & rear, and a Wilwood four-wheel disc brake package.
This is the kind of Camaro convertible for those who like to be seen, heard, and envied. If you're not timid, it's time for you to call today!
