1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS
Right car, right color, right price? This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 hits a lot of high notes, and there aren't many more desirable pieces of vintage muscle than a '69 Camaro. Admit it, this air-conditioned big block F-body would look pretty good in your garage, wouldn't it?
Pretty hard to resist a beautifully finished Marina Blue 1969 Camaro with arrow-straight bodywork. You've seen the sub-standard jobs at the local cruise night, so imagine pulling in with this car that shows crystal clear reflections in its shiny flanks and a perfect stance. Dig the aggressive cowl-induction hood, chin spoiler, and ducktail spoiler out back, all tied together with white SS stripes and RS headlights. Yeah, this is a car that gets attention for all the right reasons. Up front you get the requisite SS grille, but any other unnecessary trim has been shaved, so it has a sleek look that's very aggressive. RS headlights definitely help with the smooth look and even though it was repainted in 1996, there aren't a lot of signs that it's been used. Bright chrome bumpers actually work rather well, adding some contrast without drawing too much attention to themselves. This is how you build a Camaro the right way.
The clean white vinyl interior epitomizes Camaro cool in 1969 and looks timeless today. Remarkably enough, that interior is entirely original, including the seat covers, door panels, and headliner. It's quite unusual in that it's a loaded up RS/SS big block car with a column-shifted automatic transmission, but when have you ever seen another one? That's pretty cool! Factory gauges show bright markings and the 84,406 miles shown on the odometer are correct. Factory A/C is a welcome addition and still uses good old R12 refrigerant to keep things ice cold. An aftermarket AM/FM stereo has been stuffed into the original radio's slot in the dash, so you no longer have to suffer with whatever passes for entertainment on AM radio, but that seems to be the lone modification. No surprises in the trunk, either, which carries a reproduction mat and a space-saver spare tire with jack.
The engine is a correct L35 396 cubic inch V8, which made a robust 325 horsepower. It carries a correct JQ suffix code, so it's right for the car even though it's not numbers-matching. Up top, there's an Edelbrock intake manifold and Holley 4-barrel carburetor, but it's cleverly hidden under the stock air cleaner assembly. There's also an HEI ignition system tucked out of sight at the back of the block and long-tube headers help build some power on the top end. It's correctly detailed with plain valve covers, Chevy Orange paint, and the right snorkel on the air cleaner assembly, so nobody will know that there's a bit more power on tap. Underneath, this car is shockingly clean for being mostly original, including floors that are super solid and subframes that are unmarked. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission shifts crisply when you need it and unobtrusively when you don't, and feeds a stout 12-bolt rear end. A newer exhaust system gives it a great sound that is suitably aggressive but never annoying and the stance is just about perfect. Factory Rally wheels fill the fenders and carry 15-inch BFGoodrich T/A radials.
The car is documented with the original Protect-O-Plate and title documentation showing that it's had just three owners in the past 48 years. If you've been looking for just the right combination of quality, looks, and price, this '69 Camaro definitely delivers. Call today!
