X11 TRIM PACKAGE, SLICK BLACK ON HOUNDSTOOTH, 350, AUTO, FRNT DISC, FACTORY A/C!
Camaros are easily the most popular car we sell here at Streetside Classics, and 1969 Camaros in particular are virtually impossible to keep in stock. So when this sinister black SS350 showed up a few days ago, we realized that it was yet another short-termer that's going to find a new home really quickly.
Thanks to a fresh cut and buff, the Phantom Black paint looks great. There's just no other color that quite manages the dramatic look like black and on the '69 Camaro bodywork, it's especially appealing. Fortunately, the workmanship is quite good, so the shiny paint works with super straight bodywork to offer a combination that truly stands out despite its relatively low-key color. A functional cowl-induction hood certainly helps and it's been fitted with white SS stripes, one of three patterns available on early Camaros and perhaps my personal favorite choice. Panel fit is quite good, with doors that close easily and a trunk lid spoiler that sits right and with those stripe stretching from fender to door, there's really no place for shoddy workmanship to hide. Nice chrome bumpers, including a set of oversized rear bumper guards, look great against the black paint and correct SS emblems have been installed in the usual locations.
Black and white houndstooth is probably the coolest interior choice of the muscle car era and this black Camaro wears it better than most. Accurate reproduction seat covers, complete with federally-mandated headrests, anchor a very stock passenger compartment. A few woodgrained accents, including the steering wheel horn button and center console, add some warmth while the door panels and carpets are recent replacements. SS-logo floor mats help keep things looking fresh well into the future and a full complement of factory instruments, including a tach and console auxiliary gauges, make it complete. You'll also note that this car has factory A/C, a somewhat rare find, and the infamous horseshoe shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission underneath. Window and door weather stripping is new, so it seals up well and doesn't rattle, which is nice because the AM/FM stereo radio sounds decent. The trunk is also nicely outfitted with a reproduction mat and a full-sized spare.
A 350 cubic inch V8 is a welcome sight under the Camaro's cowl-induction hood, and you can see that it's functional right away by looking at the air cleaner itself. It wears correct decals on the lid and Chevy Orange paint on the block, so it has a fairly factory look overall. Finned valve covers add a bit of definition to the engine bay and the A/C system is complete and ready to cool with a shot of refrigerant. A newer dual reservoir master cylinder powers the front disc brakes and a TH350 3-speed automatic drives a 10-bolt rear. The top end of the engine was rebuilt two years ago and includes an upgraded cam that's still mild enough to drive every day, and the transmission was rebuilt at the same time. Long-tube headers with a shiny ceramic coating feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system, so it has that snarl that you've always appreciated. The undercarriage is extremely sanitary with lots of satin black paint, so little things like the brake lines and hardware really stand out. Classic SS wheels are a nice change from the usual Rallys and they carry 225/70/14 redline radials for a classic performance look.
The cars that sell most rapidly are just like this: beautifully finished, fun to drive, great colors, and lots of options. Like I said, I don't think this one will last long, so call today!
