If you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Camaro, what would it look like? One of the best colors from that year (Royal Blue)? Check. Big block? Oh, heck yes! Dialed-in black interior? Got it! Over-the-top build quality? But of course! Well, forget about building it yourself, here it is, already finished and ready to go at a price way below the cost of construction.
Nine years ago, this car was torn down and rebuilt, and it shows that they spent a great deal of effort to get it right. Oh, and just in case you think that was too long ago, it was refreshed again in 2016 to assuage any such concerns. Every single component that wasn't up to the builder's very high standards went in the dumpster and was replaced with a fresh one, and the guys doing the work were obviously very, good at their jobs. This car has the right look and was treated to an SS look with spoilers, hockey stripes, and badges, although the big block will surely surprise more than a few people. Multi-stage paint in fabulous Royal Blue went down, then they carefully buffed the whole thing to make the clearcoat shine like a mirror. It shows some incredibly small signs of use and age today, nothing that can be seen easily, but that means you can take it out and have some fun without worrying about hurting a priceless paint job. This car gets all the big stuff right.
The black interior is an update on stock specs and thanks to quality vinyl seat covers on the front buckets and rear seat, it needs nothing to be enjoyed today. Against the Royal Blue paint it really looks good, but there's nothing in there that seems overly modern or out of place. Everything's new, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. Some notable aftermarket parts are the leather-wrapped SS steering wheel and the digital Auto Meter gauges inside the custom bezels just beyond it, but they're so cool that they look just like they were born there thanks to the entire look of that slick dash. The horseshoe shifter sticks out of the middle console SS-style and is more proof that this car was not built to take prisoners. Heck, there's not even a simple AM radio in the dash, but rather a block-busting sound system with speakers throughout, all controlled by the Sony AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit that's now in the factory slot. You also get a nicely finished trunk, complete with a set of subwoofers and plush carpets and paneling.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that big block motors slide right in. The potent-looking block found here is a Shafiroff 540 V8 that's been Dyno'd at 664HP and is right at home in the F-body engine bay, and as you can see, every single component is dedicated to making it go faster. The long list of upgrades include aluminum heads, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold, MSD ignition, long-tube headers, and a giant BeCool aluminum radiator to keep it all nice and cool. Internally, the 540 is built by the pro's pros, which means bulletproof, and it's wearing branded big block valve covers that make it easy to spot where this monster came from. The transmission is a slick-shifting TH350 automatic feeding a beefy 12-bolt rear end with traction bars to help hook it up. Tubular control arms are up front, along with a big sway bar, and power steering and power front disc brakes make the driving experience that much more enjoyable. The floors are in excellent order, the hardware is robust, and if you're looking for a heavy-duty Camaro that sticks to the factory recipe but takes it to the next level, this is it. Even the 18-inch American Racing wheels give it attitude, especially with staggered 225/45/15 front and 275/40/15 rear Sumitomo radials that totally stuff the fenders.
Someone didn't hold back when they built this car, and now you can own the nastiest street Camaro this side of a COPO. Offered with plenty of build receipts and a Dyno sheet, this '69 is an absolute stunner. Call today!
