1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in Chevrolet dealerships in September 1966 for the 1967 model year on a brand-new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2 plus 2 seat, hardtop (no "B" or center pillar) or convertible, with the choice of either a straight-six or V8 engine. The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model year.
This restored, and jam packed with power 1969 Z/28 clone version is as beautiful as it is powerful. A shining example of taking an amalgamation of performance parts and stuffing them into an iconic body. Traction bars, rally wheels and a rear facing scooped hood all added to a big sum of total muscle!
The recipient of a restoration with mostly straight sheetmetal and decent panel alignment, this Camaro was given a respray in a nice coating of burnt orange. Prior to the clear coating, wide silver dual racing stripes were painted on. A rear facing scooped hood was added to give some extra breathing and Z/28 badging was added to the eggcrate grille, fenders and tail panel. Brightwork and badging as well as bumpers and window trimmings are all looking shiny and fab. On the back a small rear spoiler attached to the trunk lid and just below is a pristine bumper framing the horizontal tail lights. Deep dish 15-inch rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in deeply treaded BF Goodrich radial rubber.
Complimenting the exterior orange and silver stripes, we see a sea of black nice condition vinyl. This is covering the door panels which are nearly showroom, and the buckets which are high back versions with large headrests attached. In the back is a black 2 plus 2 rear bench just as nice as the front buckets. In the center is a black molded vinyl console and it sports a silver insert which frames the T-handled Hurst floor shifter. Just in front of the shift lever is a quad of cascading gauges to monitor engine vitals and gives you a constant heads up reading of said numbers. The dash is original and has a beautiful rosewood rimmed 3 spoke steering wheel in front. Peering beyond the wheel are a pair of deeply sunken gauges with warning lights below and a clock in the center. Black carpeting in heavily faded condition, much which has faded to orange, is on the floors and above is a slightly soiled black vinyl headliner. We are ready to roll!
Under the scooped hood, now replacing the original 8 cylinder is a 350ci V8 circa 1969-1979, with its heartbeat provided by a Holley 4bbl carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold. A T10 4-speed manual transmission is installed and sends power back to a 10-bolt PF stamped rear axle with 2.73 gears and Positraction. Dressing up the mill are chrome valve covers and an air cleaner lid by Edelbrock along with a few other chrome accessories.
Unrestored but solid describes the underside with factory undercoating and a mix of patina and surface rust. Headers run to a stock mufflered dual exhaust that makes its way to the back of the machine. Independent coil springs are on front and on back are leaf springs to provide the muscle ride and power disc brakes are on front, and power drums for the rear. All looking ready for some action under here.
This car fired up with a mighty roar, and performed much like the roar at the start. Out on the test track it had wonderful launching from that first gear, and unlimited acceleration. The T10 manual and Hurst shifter is snappy and working perfectly. Braking was solid. Only 2 frowns crept up during our drive, the horn didn't toot, and the front suspension has some noises that deem investigation.
All buttoned up interior and exterior, a Z28 clone car which definitely looks and performs the part. Beautiful color combos, all ready to roll in style and even add a bit of excitement to your right foot. With a little bit of TLC and elbow grease this IS the Camaro you need to own!
