FRESH CRATE 502CI, 4 SPEED, RS HEADLIGHTS, LASER STRAIGHT BODY
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 with just 520 test and tune miles on it.
Torn down, stripped, and placed on a rotisserie as a bare shell, this car was rebuilt from the sheetmetal on up. 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, very good at their jobs. The steel body got some new components, including quarters, a cowl-induction hood, and a front cap, but not because this was a rusty car but rather simply because it was the best way to get filler-free sheetmetal that is as straight as an arrow. 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. Forget stripes, this Camaro doesn't need them to attract attention, and it's the kind of car that you can spend a lot of time examining because every little detail is incredibly well done. It got an SS grille, RS headlights, and all the appropriate badges, and who cares if it's legit or not-this car has moved beyond chasing obscurity.
The white interior pulls a fast one and adds houndstooth inserts and black carpets to create a dazzling contrast. Against the Lemans Blue paint it really pops, but there's nothing in there that looks 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 column-mounted tach and the twin auxiliary gauges under the dash, but they're so cool that they look just like they were born there thanks to retro-looking faces. 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 correct woodgrained block-off plate. Even the trunk is no-frills, although the floor itself is spotless and has been restored with correct spatter-finish paint.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that ZZ502 crate motors slide right in. The slick-looking big block is right at home in the F-body engine bay, and as you can see, every single component is brand new. It actually looks fairly OEM under the hood, as it should, but things like the massive ceramic-coated Hooker long-tube headers give it away but the soundtrack makes it totally worthwhile. The transmission is a Muncie 4-speed feeding a 12-bolt with 4.10s and heavy-duty axles inside. The floors are shiny clean, the hardware is all-new, 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 Rallys give it attitude, especially with staggered 215/65/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.
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!
