This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/409 started out with a rendering from automotive artist Steve Stanford. The concept was to build a 1969 Camaro with the styling cues of a 1961 “bubble top” Impala. The most obvious trademark feature to incorporate was the roofline. Several other body modifications were made too, such as recessed waterfalls cut into the decklid, flush-mount rear taillights, redesigned front and rear valence panels, and integrated rocker moldings. This work of art sits on a set of one-off 5-pin aluminum knockoff-style wheels with custom adapter plates that were made using original Corvette knockoff wheels and factory stainless center caps.
For the interior, a 1961 Chevrolet dashboard was fitted, complete with an original 1961 steering wheel, SS 409 Sun Tach and factory-style air-conditioning ducts. The bucket seats are upholstered with 1961-spec Seville Grain Red Vinyl with a matching headliner as well. A 409 four-speed shifter arm was adapted to the Turbo 400 transmission, in the middle of a resized chrome shifter console. Other cabin features include custom door panels, quarter-panels and a rear package tray. For added comfort, a top-of-the-line concealed 1,400-watt Memphis audio system and tilt steering column were installed.
This bad boy is powered by a dual-quad 409 with the classic “Camel Hump” heads. Starting with a 1962 SS 409 block, the engine was bored and stroked to 472 cubic inches and used original-spec Carter Carburetors and a 1962 date-coded aluminum intake. Once completed, the engine delivered a satisfying 498 horses with 466 pound-feet of torque, all backed by a Turbo 400 transmission and Ford 9-inch rear end. Despite drawing classic inspiration and design for the build, this Camaro incorporates several modern components to ensure it drove like a true performance car. Additional features include four-wheel Wilwood disc brakes, along with a complete Heidts subframe and four-link, with everything tied together by a set of subframe connectors.
There are less than 20 miles clocked on the odometer on this build, so it’s practically brand new. Don’t miss your opportunity to own this work of art! This is truly a number one show car that is not only built to impress, but is also fully functional. Why choose form over function when you can have both?
