LS1 & 4L60E SWAP DONE RIGHT, A/C, RS FRONT END, NEW VINYL TOP, NICE RESTOMOD!!!

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is pro-touring done right. Nicely finished, it offers a cutting edge fuel injected powertrain, all the creature comforts, and a big helping of respect for the original design. Arguably the best-looking Camaro ever built, it only gets better with the application of modern tech.

This is a real-deal SS396, but that's probably not relevant anymore and if you cared about matching numbers, you wouldn't be drooling over this incredible Hugger Orange beauty. They've invested a ton of hours in the restoration of the shell, and it more than measures up to the other cars you see at your local cruise nights. The brand new white vinyl top, great panel alignment, plenty of time spent blocking the bodywork, and crisply rendered white SS stripes on a cowl induction hood all add up to a Camaro that gets a lot of attention everywhere it goes. RS headlights, a blacked-out SS grille, and all the proper badges (including the '396' emblems it was born with) give it the look of a fresh restoration, not a modified car. But then again, the stance, the oversized rolling stock, and the instant ignition will always tip folks off that not everything is as it appears.

A 1998 Camaro gave its life for the construction of this car, and that includes the bucket seats, which have been reupholstered using houndstooth material that will make folks do a double-take. Far more supportive than the original chairs, these deeply bolstered buckets are the right choice when your car has the capabilities of this SS. A woodgrained wheel, horseshoe shifter, and factory gauges keep it looking stock, but the amazing thing is that it's all been tweaked to work with the modern powertrain underneath. That means no cheesy gauges hanging under the dash, no excuses about non-functioning speedometers, just a fully-sorted resto-mod that works like it should. You'll note that there's a tilt column, upgraded air conditioning, and the horseshoe shifter now manages four gears instead of three. A powerful Kenwood AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo slips into the dash where the factory radio used to be and the trunk is outfitted with a correct mat and full-sized spare.

The heart of this car is a 1998 Camaro LS1 V8, and the all-aluminum engine does wonders for the early Camaro's handling. Expertly installed by Marc Byers right here in Fort Worth, it features a full Painless Wiring conversion harness so everything works like it should with no cutting and splicing that can hurt reliability. It's been painted Chevy corporate orange so it has an old-school look and the firewall has been smoothed to showcase the modern engine. Corvette coil covers are a popular upgrade for all LS1 engines, and this one also features a big aluminum radiator with integral cooler for the 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission. Wilwood supplied the master cylinder, which acts on upgraded front disc brakes and a Detroit Speed & Engineering A-arm front suspension improves handling and gives the car that awesome rake. A custom-built Moser 12-bolt rear end is stuffed full of 3.73 gears, so feel free to stomp on it because the hardware can take it. Twin Flowmasters offer a remarkable sound behind the LS1 engine, and the staggered 17- and 18-inchTorque Thrust wheels are traditional yet modern with a custom offset out back to eliminate the need for tubs.

Beautifully built and fully sorted, this is the kind of Camaro you've always dreamed of building. Why not buy a turn-key car instead? It's got just 2600 miles on the build, so it's ready to rock. Call now!
