BRIGHT RED PAINT, NEW VINYL TOP, GREAT LOOKING ORIGINAL CAMARO, STRONG 350CI
The 1969 Camaro was recently named the most significant Chevrolet of the past 100 years, and when you look at this bright red SS coupe, it's pretty easy to figure out why. With a 350 under the hood, timeless good looks, and the most stylish interior to come out of GM's design studios that decade, this Camaro tells you all you need to know about the democratic process.
Few other cars wear red paint as well as a Camaro, and somehow on this SS coupe it balances aggressive good looks with a stylish upscale vibe. Not too bright, but not soft, either, it's the quintessential muscle car color that projects plenty of attitude out on the street. This car was repainted fairly recently and looks fantastic today, with good panel fit and very straight, clean sheetmetal throughout. Black Z/28 stripes are almost mandatory, just like the cowl-induction hood and ducktail spoiler out back, all of which give this Camaro traditional good looks that never go out of style. Details like the blacked-out SS grille, gill inserts ahead of the rear wheels, and polished stainless wheel moldings were all options, and they elevate this Camaro above some of its stripped-down brothers. And we're particularly fond of this car's black vinyl top, which adds a sophisticated look that will make this F-body stand out in a very crowded field.
Strato buckets were standard equipment on the Camaro, and those in this F-body are nicely refinished with reproduction seat covers that totally nail the OEM look. This one originally carried a code 721 Medium Green interior, so you know that anything that's black is new, which is pretty much everything. Carpets, door panels, dash pad, and even the headliner were replaced during the restoration and it all looks quite correct. Somewhere along the line this car received an Alpine AM/FM/cassette head unit, and it's nicely installed without any hack work in the dash. A center console is always a welcome find in any muscle car, and you already know how much we love the horseshoe shifter GM used on many of its performance models. The overall effect is comfortable and stylish, like your favorite pair of jeans. You also get a clean trunk that's wearing correct spatter paint, ready to be finished with a new mat.
Few powertrain combinations are more reliable and time-tested than the 350 cubic inch V8 backed by a matching TH350 automatic. As a former racer myself, I have always preferred the small block cars for their superior handling and generally more nimble demeanor, and this Camaro is no exception. It's also nicely finished, with some chrome dress-up and yellow plug wires, plus the functional cowl induction air cleaner assembly feeding an Edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold. It's almost a show piece, so you won't mind people having a look under the hood, and it runs extremely well. Hailing from a warm climate, you know the chassis is in good order, the floors are solid, and all the original equipment remains intact. Stock exhaust manifolds feed a mellow-sounding dual exhaust system, and the transmission's quick reflexes practically define the term "stomp and steer," making this an awesome car for slicing through traffic. Rounding out this car's list of noteworthy attributes are Rally wheels wearing 225/70/15 white-letter radials at all four corners.
