HANDSOME & STRONG W/ A DART 427 V8, MSD ELECTRONIC FUEL INJECTION, AWESOME SOUND
If I had to pick one car that will always be in demand, it would be the 1969 Camaro. This particular '69, however, is altogether more desirable thanks to a cool color combination, high-quality build, and a brutal DART 427 under the hood. The best-looking of the pony cars with one of the nastiest motors ever built? Yes please!
Burgundy paint on a Camaro isn't very common these days, what with everyone going with Hugger Orange, but nobody's going to complain when they hear this sucker come rumbling in. It was originally code 71 Le Mans Blue, but you've already seen a bunch of those, making this one a little out of the ordinary and very sophisticated-looking. Body gaps are trim, the panels line up like they should, and the contrasting black hockey stick decals were installed with precision. You can see the quality from 20 feet away, both in the dazzling shine of the two-stage urethane and the way the "speed lines" coming off the fenders slash through the fenders and doors, and a professional cut and buff would really make this one sparkle like a show piece. A cowl-induction hood is a standard feature on the fastest Camaros, so it's not out of place here, and the usual ducktail spoiler lives out back. Shiny stuff really glitters against the burgundy paint, so the bumpers were polished up, the stainless rocker panel trim and gill inserts look great, and proper SS badges were installed in the right places. Oh, and let's not forget the '427 badges on the front fenders, an important part of this car's personality.
Code 711 on the cowl tag means standard black buckets, but during the restoration, this upscale F-body received beautiful black and white houndstooth upholstery, arguably the very best choice in a '69. It makes for a very mature, tasteful look with the burgundy paint. The seat covers look brand new, the carpets are the correct weave and color, and new door panels are nicely detailed with just a bit of chrome. There's a much-needed grab handle for the front seat passenger, while the driver wraps his fingers around a standard 3-spoke steering wheel and the trick T-handle shifter. Factory gauges are joined by a full set of aftermarket dials under the dash, which give you a full picture of the big block's activities. A modern AM/FM radio lives in the dash and the trunk is tidy and clean, carrying a correct mat and full-sized spare with jack assembly.
The engine is a musclebound DART 427 cubic inch V8 crate motor fed by a very trick MSD fuel injection setup that's virtually invisible under the stock-style air cleaner. It's a little flashier than stock, but you'll welcome the added chrome bits when you're showing it off at the cruise night. There are aluminum heads on top of a Chevy Orange block, which help make power, control heat, and shed weight. Long-tube headers work with a set of Flowmaster mufflers for a spectacular soundtrack that can only come from a 427. A rugged TH350 3-speed automatic transmission doesn't mind the big block's power and feeds it to a stout 10-bolt rear end, and even if you're not an automatic guy, you're going to be impressed by how quick this car really is. The chassis is in excellent shape without any major upgrades, so it's very friendly on the street and handsome Torque Thrust wheels are a great addition and wear staggered 215/65/15 front and 255/60/15 rear tires.
This Camaro is one of those cars that's even nicer than you think it is. Fast, beautiful, and nicely finished, it's the 1969 Camaro that everyone should aspire to own. Call today!
