Some cars can get by on looks alone, but this awesome 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe ably demonstrates that there's often substance under the style. Icy silver over black with a cool rake, this one hits all the right visual notes, and with a potent small block V8 under the hood, well, it's not just handsome, but potent as well.
Looking like a heavyweight fighter in a tuxedo, this F-body is all dressed up with an SS grille, chin spoiler, and ducktail out back. There's a lot of effort tied up in getting the sheetmetal straight enough to wear the high-tech Cortez Silver paint so well, and while it's not a trailer queen, people will definitely sit up and take notice every time this predator rolls in. You can see how smooth and flat the bodywork is in our photos; take note of how clear the reflections are, and those ghost hockey stick stripes, the car takes on a very high-tech look indeed. Gaps are good, too, so you won't worry about hurting that lovely paint when you slam the hood. Of course, there's a cowl-induction hood to give it the right attitude, and all the chrome has been refinished or polished, so it glitters against the paint like jewelry. This is resto-mod done right.
The interior is a fresh black vinyl, and if you need evidence that GM stylists were hitting on all eight cylinders in 1969, you need look no further than this gorgeous Camaro. Recent seat covers duplicate the factory patterns, and the other stuff like door panels and carpets are relatively new, too. You'll also note an interesting combination of features in this one, including a custom three-spoke wheel, Hurst shifter in the original console, and a great-sounding stereo. The tach is a white-faced Auto Meter unit, and there's a trio of auxiliary dials down low under the dash in the traditional style. The cool horseshoe shifter has always been a favorite, but the Hurst piece is a lot more accurate when you're running hard and need an edge. The trunk is incredibly clean and while it has no mat or spare, it also has nothing to hide, which is always nice.
The engine is a fresh 350 cubic inch V8 detailed to dazzle and covered in bright chrome and billet trim. Rebuilt less than 800 miles ago, it includes bright chrome valve covers and a finned air cleaner, as well as a chrome alternator and some aluminum bits. The engine was treated to a full rebuild and is fed by a polished Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and an MSD ignition lights it up. Actually the list of parts is extensive so we can't cover them all, but suffice to say that this sucker is full of the good stuff. The transmission is a crisp-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic feeding a rugged 10-bolt rear end. Long-tube headers and dual mufflers give it the most spectacular baritone voice this side of the Metropolitan Opera house and you can see that virtually everything under the car has been freshened. More than $2000 worth of new Coys wheels wear staggered 225/40/18 front and 255/35/20 rear performance radials.
Take a good look, but I think you'll have a hard time resisting this awesome Camaro. Call now and we'll be happy to show you everything that went into the build.
