1969 Chevrolet Camaro RestomodIf you set out to build the ultimate 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, what would it look like? One of the best colors from that year (Fathom Green)? Check. Big horsepower? Oh, heck yes! Dialed-in black A/C interior? Got it! Over-the-top build quality? But of course! Well, forget about building it yourself, here it is, already finished and ready to go at a price way below the cost of construction.
717 miles ago, this car was taken down and then completely restored, and it shows that they spent a great deal of time and effort to get it right. Oh, and just in case you think they took any shortcuts, go right ahead and take a look at the undercarriage – pretty impressive, right? 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 pros doing the work were obviously very, very good at their jobs. This car has the right look and was thankfully spared all the fake bolt-on nonsense that plague so many of these new restomod builds, relying instead on factory components like the white hockey stick stripes, a white vinyl top, a ducktail spoiler and correct Bowtie and Chevrolet badges throughout. Multi-stage paint in fabulous Fathom Green (the car's original color) went down with an expert's touch, then they carefully buffed and polished the whole thing to make the clearcoat shine like a mirror. Quite frankly, this finish is a 9 out of 10, mostly because beauty is in the eye of the beholder and there's no such thing as perfect. This car gets all the big stuff right.
The black interior is a tasteful update on stock specs and thanks to brand new and high-quality vinyl seat covers on the front buckets and rear seat, it needs nothing to be enjoyed today. Against the Fathom Green paint it really looks good, but there's nothing in there that seems overly modern or out of place. Everything's new, of course, including the carpets, door panels, and headliner, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. Other notable parts are the woodrimmed steering wheel and the factory gauges inside the bezel just beyond it, along with the Rally pack gauges inside the center console. The horseshoe shifter sticks out of the middle console that's adorned with woodgrain applique - SS-style - and details like that are more proof that this car was built to take no prisoners. Heck, you even get A/C via a Vintage Air unit that was seamlessly installed to work through the original Astro Ventilation vent in the dash, and tunes are provided via an aftermarket AM/FM/CD/AUX/Bluetooth head unit inside the dash. Out back there's a spacious trunk that was neatly finished with spatter paint, further proof that there was no detail small enough when it came to the build of this Camaro.
The great thing about '69 Camaros is that big motors slide right into the engine bay. The potent-looking block found here is a 383 Stroker V8 Blueprinted engine that's rated at 400+ horsepower and is right at home under the hood of this F-body, and as you can see, practically every single component is dedicated to making it go faster. The long list of upgrades include ceramic-coated headers, a Holley Sniper electronic fuel-injection system, a performance intake manifold, billet pulley kit system with a serpentine set-up, and a giant aluminum radiator up front to keep it all nice and cool. The transmission is a slick-shifting 700R4 4-speed automatic with overdrive feeding a beefy 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears for stand-up power off the line and easy highway-cruising capabilities. A full Hotchkis Performance suspension underneath keeps the car planted and gives it great handles via tubular control arms and a big sway bar up front, another beefy sway bar and more Hotchkis goodies in the back, and fresh shocks and springs throughout. Power steering and Wilwood power 4-wheel disc brakes make the driving experience that much more enjoyable, and the throaty H-pipe dual exhaust below sounds absolutely fantastic. The floors are in excellent order and painted to match the top, the hardware is robust, and if you're looking for a heavy-duty Camaro that sticks to the factory recipe but takes it to the next level, this is it. Even the 17-inch Rally wheels give it attitude, especially with grippy 235/45/15 radials at each corner that stuff the fenders.
Someone didn't hold back when they built this restomod, and now you can own one of the nastiest street Camaros this side of a COPO. And with only 717 miles on the clock, this '69 is an absolute stunner. Call today!
