BIG BLOCK 502, TREMEC 5 SPEED, CHRIS ALSTON FRONT CLIP, PROFESSIONAL PAINT, NICE
If you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Camaro, what would it look like? Awesome paint? Check. Big block? Oh heck yes! Four-wheel discs? Yep! Over-the-top build quality? But of course! Well, forget about building it yourself, here it is, already finished and ready to go with just 1458 test and tune miles on it.
Torn down, stripped, and refinished, this car was rebuilt from the sheetmetal on up. 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, very good at their jobs. They didn't try to reinvent the wheel, so all the original styling cues are there, including the cowl-induction hood and ducktail spoiler out back, but the car definitely has a clean, no-nonsense look. Three-stage electric blue metallic paint went down, then they carefully buffed the whole thing to make the clearcoat shine like a mirror. Forget stripes, this Camaro doesn't need them to attract attention, and it's the kind of car that you can spend a lot of time examining because every little detail is incredibly well done. It got an SS grille, bright chrome bumpers, and a few SS badges, and who cares if it's legit, because this car has moved beyond chasing obscurity. This car is an apex predator on the street.
The black interior looks pretty stock, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. High-back buckets, reproduction door panels, new carpets, and a center console all look straight out of 1969. Against the bright blue paint it really works well, but there's nothing in there that looks too modern or out of place. Everything's new, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. The only notable aftermarket parts are the Auto Meter gauges in a custom dash cluster that looks almost OEM the way it fits into the stock instrument panel and a custom steering wheel that feels great in your hands. The shifter now manages five gears instead of four thanks to a Hurst shifter with trick silver knob and the entertainment center has been upgraded to an Alpine AM/FM/CD setup. You'll note that this car has rather rare factory power windows, which were retained during the build and even the trunk is beautifully finished with matching black carpets, custom side panels, and a custom embossed bowtie emblem.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that ZZ502 crate motors slide right in. The slick-looking big block is right at home in the F-body engine bay, and as you can see, every single component is brand new. It looks race grade under the hood, as it should, and things like the braided stainless hoses and aluminum heads are definitely performance-oriented. A giant aluminum BeCool radiator uses electric fans, there's an Edelbrock carb up top, and an MSD ignition system lights the fires. The transmission is a Tremec TKO600 5-speed feeding a Chris Alston 9-inch rear with 3.70 gears inside, which hangs on a set of QA1 adjustable shocks and a DSE leaf spring suspension. Wilwood disc brakes live at all four corners and the soundtrack is absolutely spectacular thanks to long-tube headers and oversized pipes. 18-inch Foose Nitrous wheels give it attitude, especially with staggered 245/40/18 front and 275/40/18 rear Nitto performance radials.
Someone didn't hold back when they built this car, and now you can own the nastiest street Camaro this side of a COPO. Call today!
