Take a close look at this striking Super Sport and you'll feel like you've stepped right back in time. The car's clean restoration, conducted by Camaro Specialty of Charlotte, North Carolina, hides a straight body under correct LeMans Blue 2-stage that was sourced from the pros at PPG. All that steel goodwill is topped by a pair of black hockey stripes, which foretell exactly the asphalt patterns the car's vicious big block aims to paint. And traditional RS/SS aesthetics are complemented with dual chrome mirrors, a ZL-2 cowl induction hood, optional quarter trim and a correct D80 spoiler package.
If you wanted to factory-order 1969's top-of-the-line Camaro, you had one option: 396 cubic inches of big block Detroit iron! But, it ain't '69 anymore, and Chevrolet's ultimate large-displacement offering eventually punched out 454 cubic inches. A culmination of those two numbers is exactly what you'll find under this coupe's raised hood: 454 cubic inches of Chevrolet big block that's cleverly disguised as an L78 396. At the top of the mill, a black, single-snorkel air cleaner funnels wind into a big Holley carburetor that's threaded to a familiar Winters intake. Spotless chrome valve covers reflect fresh Packard TV R Suppression cables above iron heads and fully restored exhaust manifolds. At the back of those valve covers, a traditional points distributor rides between a rebuilt wiper motor, a new coil and a fresh brake booster. And a heavy duty radiator sends coolant around a shrouded fan via reproduction GM hoses and new tower clamps. Naturally, this coupe's impressive engine bay, comprised of smooth, Satin Black fenders, correct stamps and new, factory-accurate decals, is clean and 100% detailed. The Chevy Orange block features a typical array of stainless lines and textured ancillary pieces. And everything, from the car's factory power steering to its reproduction Delco battery, displays an overall excellent appearance.
Under this awesome F1 you'll find a factory-fresh chassis and super solid floorpans that, like the car's straight exterior panels and storied engine, have been restored to the absolute highest standards. The torque-rich big block spins a rugged Muncie 4-speed that's connected to a correct 12-bolt posi-traction rear end and tough 3.73 gears. Holding that legendary drivetrain off the ground is a fully rebuilt suspension, which sports 100% factory specifications. Included in that suspension is correct, factory-optioned power steering and mandatory power front disc and rear drum brakes. Inside those brakes, an aluminized, true-dual exhaust system sends charred dinosaurs through a transversely mounted muffler and correct, bare tail pipes. And at the corners of those pipes, familiar Rally wheels spin 245/60R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As around stainless trim rings and turbine center caps
Inside this cool Chevy you'll find a correct Deluxe Black Houndstooth interior that has to be one of the most stylish cockpits ever created. Traditional front bucket and rear bench seats, which feature deluxe headrests, frame a wood-trimmed console that's fitted with a chrome Hurst shifter and 4-pack accessory gauges. A pliable, wood-trimmed dash, which flows in to Deluxe door panels, hangs rebuilt telemetry over a correct looking AM/FM stereo radio. In front of the driver, a handsome Rosewood wheel spins around a tilt steering column. Thick floor mats protect like-new carpet. And behind the passengers, a new mat, new jack and full-size spare tire inhabit a fully restored trunk.

Restored by Camaro Specialty of Charlotte NC in 2015..Less than 1500 miles since resto. X22 car. All original metal except the hood is new. D80 Spoiler package, Correct Cowl induction hood, New 4 pack acc gauges. Correctly painted fender stripe and decals for the door. Not sure why GM did it that way. But its pretty neat. Its a very correct restoration. Happy for inspectors to come and see it. I will help anyway I can. This car looks and feels new from inside to outside to underneath!
Lots of fun to drive & listen to. Big block NOM (454) with nice cam. Dressed as a L78 .Four speed works as it should. Stops & drives straight. Trim tag shows colors are correct. X22 = 396 with RS package. AMFM is new also and looks original. All glass looks new. It was changed to 2 1/2 in pipe about a yr ago. Sounds strong. Hagerty Values the Camaro north of 73K.
