Car Description

1969 Chevrolet Camaro 2-dr Sport Coupe powered by a 6.5L 396cui V8 GM Chevy big block engine and driven by a Keisler 5-spd console-shift manual transmission.

The 1969 Camaro marked the last of the first generations and is arguably the most popular. It featured entirely new, more aggressive looking sheet metal and revised grille. Going away was the ‘coke bottle’ shape of the ’67-’68 models, making room for a flatter, wider looking stance. For the 1969 year the Sport Coupe was lower, longer and wider, had bucket seats, carpeting, and an improved ‘Astro’ Ventilation System.

This Camaro is believed to be a SS or Z28, however being a January 1969 Van Nuys, California built car, the body plate coding did not include specific detail such as X-codes. Only a ‘Protect-o-Plate’ would provide that information if it was still available. However this car does have the specific features suggesting that the model is a Z28 or SS, as it has both the rear upper support bracket and fuel pump fitting included in the build (see photo’s).

This Camaro has all the fun options that made the Camaro so fun and such a success. From the factory ’72’ coded Hugger Orange paint to the loping Rectangle Port 396 to the stick shift popping through a gauge clad center console to the 12-bolt tyre shredding posi…..its all here! This car is ‘Love at First Rev’ car. Simply fire it up, crack the throttle once and if your knees don’t get a bit tingly…you are truly a Prius person. The body on this Camaro is very nice, paint lays down well and has a nice, deep shine. Easily nice enough for the weekend show & sunny day driver crowd. Chrome & bright trim are very nice as well. While very nice this one has been driven and enjoyed for about 9300 kms since its restoration six (6) years ago so it is not perfect, but it presents very nicely.

Inside, the interior is in excellent condition with very little sign of use. Pretty much everything in here is new from the upholstery to the instrumentation. Seat upholstery is nice, crisp and comfortable. Carpet fits nicely and the headliner is nice & tight. The dash features the optional gauge package with a tachometer which moves the gauges to a really cool pod on the console. All the gauges work properly too. This is a beautiful place to spend a cruise!

To get this one to ride & drive right the factory suspension was replaced with a complete Coil-Over conversion from RideTech. This kit ditches the leaf springs out back in favor of a more modern 4-bar system that uses a coil over shock to reduce weight and make height adjustments with the twist of a spanner wrench. Up front the control arms were all replaced with tubular units as well as easily height adjustable coil overs.

Under the hood is where all the action starts. Receipts document an extensive build on the 396 engine. Goodies include an Eagle Forged Steel Crank, Eagle Forged Steel Rods, Forged Pistons, Comp Big Mutha Thumpa Cam, Manley Stainless Intake & Exhaust Valves and MORE. Also on the engine is a FACTORY L78 Winters Casting Aluminum Intake Manifold, Quickfuel carburetor, Ceramic Headers, MSD Ignition, etc. This was a very high end build with buckets of money thrown at it, best of all its documented!

Not many transmissions will hold up to this type of use. A Keisler ‘Legend’ 5-speed transmission conversion was bought at quite the tidy sum. Good thing is, it works as intended. This thing shifts so much nicer than a Tremec TKO, its incredible. The clutch works nice & smooth too.

Out back lives a correctly coded BT E 12 Bolt Positraction rear end that has been fitted with 4.10 gearing. Thanks to the Keisler Overdrive 5 speed it cruises easily on the highway.

Rolling stock consists of a set of high end 17″ billet Specialties wheels which fit the build nicely. Wheel wells are full without rubbing and the car sits down nicely around the tyres.
