Camaro SS Restomod
NUT-&-BOLT CUSTOM BUILD, BIG BLOCK 496 V8, AUTO, 4 WHEEL DISCS, 18"/20" BOZE, A+
If you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Camaro, what would it look like? Awesome paint? Check. Big block? Oh heck yes! Four-wheel discs? Yep! 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 a handful of test and tune miles on it.
Torn down, stripped, and refinished, 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. They didn't try to reinvent the wheel, so all the original styling cues are there, including the cowl-induction hood and ducktail spoiler out back, and the car definitely has a clean, no-nonsense look. Sizzling yellow paint 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, bright chrome bumpers, and a few SS badges on the nose and tail, and who cares if it's legit, because this car has moved beyond chasing obscurity. This car is an apex predator on the street.
The black interior has been given a fairly comprehensive makeover, starting with a set of custom leather high-back buckets seats. There's also a matching console that was created just for this car, and it extends into the back seat area where it neatly bisects the rear bench. Against the bright yellow paint it really works well, but there's nothing in there that looks out of place. Everything's new, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. Auto Meter gauges live in a custom dash cluster that looks almost OEM the way it fits into the stock instrument panel and a custom steering wheel that feels great in your hands. The shifter now manages a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and the entertainment center has been upgraded to an Alpine AM/FM/CD setup with Rockford amplifiers and a set of 10-inch subwoofers. Even the trunk is beautifully finished with matching black carpets, custom side panels, and Plexiglas inserts so you can see them amps. Cool!
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that big block motors slide right in. The slick-looking 496 cubic inch V8 is right at home in the F-body engine bay, and as you can see, every single component is brand new. It looks totally custom under the hood, as it should, and things like the air cleaner and valve covers were custom painted to match the bodywork. The block is a seasoned piece that's been bored .060 oversize and topped with a Holley 4-barrel carb, aluminum intake, oval port heads, and MSD ignition system. A giant aluminum radiator uses electric fans, and the plumbing and wiring were neatly hidden out of sight. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a Ford 9-inch rear end, which hangs on a set of coil-over shocks. The front suspension is A-arms with coil-overs and rack-and-pinion steering, so this car feels like anything but an antique. Baer disc brakes live at all four corners and the soundtrack is absolutely spectacular thanks to long-tube headers and oversized pipes. 18- and 20-inch Boze wheels give it attitude, and those giant rear meats are tucked up into the fenders just perfectly.
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!
