BIG BLOCK 502 V8, AUTO, CURRIE 9" REAR, PWR FRNT DISCS/PWR STEERING, SLICK BUILD
If you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Camaro, what would it look like? Most popular color that year (Lemans Blue)? Check. Big block? Oh heck yes! Houndstooth interior? Got it! Over-the-top build quality? But of course! Well, forget about building it yourself, here it is, already finished and ready to go at a price way below the cost of construction.
Seven years ago, this car was torn down and rebuilt, and it shows that they spent a great deal of effort to get it right. 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, good at their jobs. This car has the right look and was treated to a Z/28 look with spoilers, stripes, and badges, although the big block will surely surprise more than a few people. Two-stage urethane paint in fabulous Lemans Blue went down, then they carefully buffed the whole thing to make the clearcoat shine like a mirror. It shows some signs of use and age today, nothing major, but that means you can take it out and have some fun without worrying about hurting a priceless paint job. This car gets all the big stuff right.
The black interior looks very stock and thanks to quality reproduction seat covers, it needs nothing to be enjoyed today. Against the Lemans Blue paint it really looks good, but there's nothing in there that seems 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 custom steering wheel on a factory tilt column and the Auto Meter gauges, but they're so cool that they look just like they were born there thanks to a custom dash insert. The shifter sticks out of the transmission tunnel COPO-style, and is more proof that this car was not built to take prisoners. Heck, there's not even an AM radio in the dash, just a block-off plate which reinforces this car's hardcore attitude. You do, however, get a nicely finished trunk, complete with a correct repro mat that fits well and looks right.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that ZZ502 crate motors slide right in. The potent-looking big block is right at home in the F-body engine bay, and as you can see, every single component is dedicated to making it go faster. The long list of upgrades include an Edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold, MSD ignition, long-tube headers, and a giant aluminum radiator to keep it all nice and cool. Internally, the 502 is stock, which means bulletproof, and it's wearing traditional big block valve covers that make it easy to spot. The transmission is a slick-shifting autobox feeding a beefy Currie 9-inch rear end with traction bars to help hook it up. The floors are in good order, the hardware is robust, and if you're looking for a heavy-duty Camaro that sticks to the factory recipe but takes it to the next level, this is it. Even the 15-inch Weld wheels give it attitude, especially with staggered BFGoodrich T/A radials that totally stuff the fenders.
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!
