If you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Camaro, what would it look like? One of the best colors from that year (Cortez Silver)? Check. Big motor? You betcha. 4-speed gearbox? Oh, heck yes! Dialed-in 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. This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS checks all the right boxes, and with huge power and a recent restoration, its dominating ways are just beginning.
Seriously, if you could have a vintage Camaro built any way you wanted, isn't this pretty much what you'd wish for? The paint and bodywork is in great shape, the curb appeal is through the roof, and there's no mistaking that fantastic 1969 Camaro profile. When it came down to restore this beauty, the builders were wise to stick with the original script. It's obvious this was a very solid, desert flower to begin with, but nevertheless it was torn down, set straight, and then coated with layer after layer of factory-correct Code 69 Cortez Silver paint. Every component that wasn't up to the builder's high standards was either restored or replaced with a fresh one, and the guys doing the work were obviously very, very good at their jobs. The Cortex Silver paint is fresh, with only minor imperfections to speak of, and although it was built as a driver they certainly didn't shy away from making it look awesome in person. There's not much to complain about on tis slick, smooth, and uniform surface, and the painted-on black "hockey-stick" stripes and correct black vinyl roof add the perfect contrast to the silver finish. A front chin spoiler, blacked-out SS-grille, SS-style hood complete with chrome vents, chrome fender "gills", and a ducktail spoiler all add to the car's menacing look, but thanks to high-quality restoration work that stuck to the factory script, it's not at all over-the-top. 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. Chrome bumpers fore and aft, wheel arch and rocker panel trim, and window/door hardware all add bright bling, meaning this F-Body absolutely glistens under the sun. If you're looking for a super-clean '69 Camaro, you'd be hard-pressed to find another as dialed-in as this beauty.
The Code 715 Blue standard interior is mostly stock, although with the help of newer materials and a couple choice upgrades, the cabin is in excellent condition. Top quality vinyl seat covers on the front buckets and rear seat are virtually flawless, while the factory center console is terrific option that barely looks touched as well, and with matching blue door panels at the flanks, a taut blue headliner above, and plush blue carpets on the floors, the cabin feels sporty, tidy, and very complete. Against the Cortex Silver paint the cabin really looks good, and despite a couple upgrades there's nothing in there that seems overly modern or out of place. Everything's been restored, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. A blue carpeted mat protects the blue dash underneath (and yes, the dashboard is free of any cracks or blemishes), blue floormats protect the clean carpets, and woodgrain trim adorning the center console and dash really warms things up inside. The stock gauges are still in place, although with all that added power the builders smartly added a tachometer strapped to the steering column, along with a trio of aftermarket auxiliary gauges to keep a closer eye on the organized violence underneath the hood. The woodrimmed three-spoke steering wheel and cue-ball topped Hurst 4-speed shifter is a timeless combination that'll never go out of style, and although by all accounts this appears to be a factory A/C car, only the vents and factory controls remain. Options include an upgraded retro-sound AM/FM/Cassette stereo, a working heater/defrost unit, and seatbelts fore and aft. And out back, there's a neatly finished trunk complete with correct plaid mats and a spare tire and jack set for emergencies.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that upgraded motors slide right in and hook right up. The potent-looking small block found here is a professionally built, bored and stroked 427 "Fat Mouse" V8 that's been Dyno'd at 413HP and 429 lb-ft of torque, and it fits right at home in the F-body engine bay where practically every single component is dedicated to making it go faster. The long list of upgrades inside the block include Dart heads, Eagle connecting rods, a Callie's Compstar crankshaft, a big Comp Cams camshaft, Comp Cams pushrods, roller lifters, a roller timing set, Mahle pistons and rings, and a performance coated bearings that all work together to deliver huge power in a big way. Augmented with a giant Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop a Dart air-gap intake, an MSD ignition, long-tube headers, and a giant Griffin aluminum radiator to keep it all nice and cool, it's obvious this Camaro was meant to be driven, as the builder picked the best-of-the-best in performance goodies. The transmission is a slick-shifting Muncie M21 4-speed gearbox feeding a beefy 12-bolt rear end that can easily handle the power, while the suspension's been upgraded with aftermarket shocks and a front swaybar, while the power steering and power front disc brakes make driving that much more enjoyable. Stock 15-inch SS Mag wheels add a period-perfect touch, especially with those gorgeous Firestone F70-15 redlines that stuff the fenders.
Offered with restoration photos, build receipts, and a Dyno sheet, this '69 Camaro is a pro-built stunner that's only lacking one thing: a new owner. Call today!
