HOTCHKIS SUSPENSION, VINTAGE A/C, 350 W/ 700R4 TRANS, AWESOME MUSCLE CAR LOOK
You'll note that we have a hard time keeping early Camaros in stock, particularly ultra-clean ones like this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS coupe. With that in mind, if you're looking for one with a snarling small block, awesome interior, numerous upgrades, and a look that dares other cars to race, perhaps you should call now instead of finishing reading this.
1969 Camaros are quite possibly our #1 best-sellers for good reason: they look positively awesome. You want street cred? An F-body is a great way to get it. You want front-row parking at the next cruise night? This Marina Blue RS coupe will deliver. It keeps with the factory formula, since it's hard to improve on the timeless design (even the factory copied it four decades later), but the execution is quite good. The paint is recent and hugs some very straight sheetmetal that has enjoyed the ministrations of some talented body men. And as a color-change (this one was originally code 50 Dover White), you know it was a full disassembly job, because there's just no white paint to be found anywhere. There's the usual cowl-induction hood, as well as spoilers fore and aft, plus black hockey stick stripes just in case you thought this car isn't arresting enough. Bright chrome bumpers flank the car at both ends, adding a shiny bit of punctuation to the all-black storyline. The vinyl top is also in excellent condition, giving it a grown-up look that works rather well with the black stripes and interior.
The interior has been subtly upgraded to make for a better driving experience. The factory buckets wear fresh reproduction seat covers and the door panels are excellent repros, too. The center console is nicely woodgrained and carries our all-time favorite shifter, the GM horseshoe. You'll also note that it now manages four gears instead of three; more on that in a moment. Factory gauges remain in the dash, and you'll note that this car was originally equipped with factory A/C, which is now backed by modern hardware and R134a refrigerant for reliability. A cool AM/FM stereo fits neatly in the original slot and works with a custom Memphis digital controller under the dash. The ultra-clean trunk offers a fresh reproduction mat and spare tire assembly with a matching cover.
Horsepower comes easy thanks to a built 350 cubic inch V8. Weiand supplied the intake manifold and Holley provides the 4-barrel carb, which live atop a freshened 1973 4-bolt main block. Chevy Orange paint keeps it looking right under the hood, and a bit of chrome dress-up never hurts, including the Z/28-style finned valve covers. There's a recent alternator, new hoses and clamps, and a fresh master cylinder so you know it's ready to run. The aforementioned 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission carries provides easy cruising and quick reflexes, and powers a 10-bolt rear end that doesn't mind the small block's power. Long-tube headers and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system give it an awesome voice, and with subframe connectors and a full Hotchkis suspension setup it's a great handler. Slick 15-inch Torque Thrusts sparkle against the blue paint and wear 225/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
It's a '69 Camaro and it's beautifully finished, so it won't last long. If you like what you see, please don't hesitate and call today!
