SOLID DROP-TOP CAMARO, 327 V8, MILD CAM, 4-SPEED, LONGTUBE & DUALS, TURN-KEY!!
The 1969 Camaro was recently named the most significant Chevrolet of the past 100 years, and when you look at this green 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS ragtop, it's pretty easy to figure out why. With a 327 under the hood, timeless good looks, and a 4-speed gearbox, this Camaro tells you all you need to know about the democratic process.
Orange Camaros get a lot of attention, but if you want to look like an adult, this handsome dark green convertible is a smarter choice. Not too bright, but not soft, either, it's the quintessential muscle car color that projects both style and aggression. Don't be fooled by the photos, since our photo studio has trouble capturing the car's actual color (turquoise greens do that), but it's a great-looking car in the flesh. It was repainted several years ago and still looks good, with good panel fit and straight sheetmetal throughout, although it has spent some time as a fair-weather driver, so it's no longer perfect and has signs of use. White hockey stick stripes are almost mandatory, just like the ducktail spoiler out back, all of which are welcome additions. This is not an SS and it's kind of refreshing to see that it hasn't been doctored up with fake badging, although with the stripes folks are probably going to make that association anyway. Does it matter? This is an awesome-looking Camaro! Details like the blacked-out grille, RS hidden headlights (the system is all new), and polished stainless wheel moldings were all options, and they elevate this Camaro above some of its stripped-down brothers.
Green buckets work nicely with the paint, and the understated interior is still a great place to spend some time. The seats show some wear, but the depth of the detailing on the seat covers means these were restored properly. The gauges are all functional save for the clock, and the wood-rimmed steering wheel adds an upscale air to this Camaro that fits it well. Somewhere along the line this car received an AM/FM/cassette head unit, but it's nicely installed without any hack work in the dash. The carpets are a little faded and there are some areas that could use some TLC, but it's still a car you can jump in and enjoy right away. A tan convertible top adds to the grown-up look and is in excellent condition while the trunk is outfitted with a reproduction mat.
Few powertrain combinations are more reliable and time-tested than a 327 cubic inch V8 backed by a Muncie 4-speed. The engine bay isn't detailed for show, but it has some chrome dress-up to complement the Chevy Orange paint on the block itself. It's been beefed up with a mild cam, an Edelbrock intake manifold, a Holley 4-barrel carburetor and a set of ceramic-coated headers. It starts easily and runs great, and at idle, it certainly sounds like a predator. Hailing from a warm climate, you know the chassis is clean and exactly what you want when you buy a car with the intention of driving it. A burbling dual exhaust system is just right, not too loud and with a bit of an attitude and the brakes were recently serviced and the axle bearings replaced. Rounding out this car's list of noteworthy attributes are factory Rally wheels with new 215/70/15 front and 225/70/15 rear performance radials.
