1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396

We get excited about cars like this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 hardtop because they check all the hot buttons for collectors: big block power, manual transmission, wesome colors, nd factory A/C. It's one of those cars that everyone can agree is flat-out cool and it does everything so well, ou'll be finding reasons to drive it as often as possible.Code 65 Olympic Gold is this car's original color and it still looks as good as it did back 1969. Sure, ugger Orange or bright red is all about getting attention, ut this is one of those cars that just gets better and better the more you look at it. In fact, e've spent a lot of time examining this car's bodywork and quite honestly, e are very impressed. It's just spectacular. It's got a sophisticated look, omething that's aided by the RS hidden headlights (fully functional, y the way) and the black vinyl top, hich is also brand new. Despite the stripes, his is not a boy racer kind of car. We also like the body-colored Endura front bumper, hich works particularly well on the RS models, s well as the chin spoiler that balances the ducktail spoiler on the trunk lid. Bright trim, ncluding wheel arch moldings and gill inserts really dress this F-body up nicely and that blacked-out tail panel advertises loud and clear that this SS packs a big block. It just gets better inside with fresh black and white houndstooth upholstery, ossibly the best-looking interior of any car of the period. Featuring all new seat covers, center console, nd enough wood trim to make it all look upscale, his is the Camaro that is welcome anywhere. Even more amazingly, verything works, rom the clock to all the instrument lights, lthough the original radio has been disabled in favor of a modern AM/FM/CD stereo hidden in the glove box. There's also functional factory A/C, hich has been converted to R134a refrigerant so it's nice and chilly inside. Other options include a tilt steering column with woodgrained SS steering wheel, he gauge package on the center console, nd a factory tach, ll of which are in working order. The car also has a properly detailed trunk, ith a correct mat and vintage Uniroyal bias-ply spare tire and jack assembly.The 396 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt to L34 specs, hich means 350 horsepower and enough grunt to make this Camaro a serious threat on the street, ven today. It's pretty stock and neatly detailed under the hood, omplete with a functional cowl-induction setup and original A6 compressor for the air conditioning. Chevy Orange paint, orrect chrome valve covers, nd even things like tower hose clamps and a Delco battery topper make it look quite right overall. The 4-speed manual transmission makes the most of the big block's power curve and feeds a robust 12-bolt rear end that shrugs off the torque running through it. Super clean floors, new reproduction exhaust system, roper stripes and decals as needed, nd fresh lines and hoses make this a very high-grade car overall with no skeletons in its closet. And while everyone loves Rallys, he SS wheels on this car complete the luxury/muscle look and carry 215/70/14 Goodyears that fill the fenders perfectly.There's not much else to say here. Big block, -speed, /C, oundstooth, resh paint, o modifications. Isn't that what you Camaro guys keep saying you want? Call today!
