Sometimes cars show up here at Streetside Classics and create a buzz before they''re even inside the building. This 1969 Camaro RS tribute is such a car, with a brilliant paint job, a thumping small block under the hood, and a tastefully restored interior, it''s what many of us think of when we picture the ultimate early F-body. The paint looks like Garnet Red, but there can''t be many bright red Camaro that look as good as this one does. I mean, the bodywork is straight and clean, but the paint shines like it''s been rubbed and buffed by someone with a lot of time on their hands and who was probably working from a super-clean original car in the first place. Quarters, doors, front fenders, and even the trunk lid are neatly fitted with good gaps all around, and with the single stripe around the nose, the red paint does most of the talking. Additions like the rear spoiler are always welcome on a ''69 Camaro, giving it an aggressive, yet OEM appearance. And despite the fact that this isn''t a real RS, all the proper RS components are in place, from the blacked-out grille with hidden headlights, to the RS badges on all four sides, and it''s kind of refreshing that they didn''t dress it up like a fake SS during the restoration. If you''re looking for a car that''ll draw a crowd, this is an awesome choice. As slick as the bodywork is, the interior is equally well-executed, with OEM materials and excellent workmanship. The beautiful buckets are as comfortable as they look, with fresh seat covers that duplicate the original patterns quite nicely. New carpets, door panels, and a fresh headliner make it feel showroom fresh inside, and you can''t argue with the brilliant interior design of 1960s General Motors cars. The instrument panel offers a proper AC speedometer, and the cool horseshoe shifter and center console make it feel racy when you''re behind the wheel. Factory A/C is another nice addition, along with a fat Grant GT steering wheel. And if you''re worried about tinworm, you can relax, because one look at the spotless trunk floor will convince you that this car has no rust or rot. The 350 cubic inch small block under the hood snarls and rumbles authoritatively. An Edelbrock carburetor and manifold deliver the fuel, and a matching set of pretty finned Edelbrock valve covers do a little advertising on the side. Block-hugging headers help bolster the torque curve and give it the most wonderful baritone soundtrack this side of LeMans. You''ll also note factory A/C that has been upgraded to R134a refrigerant, a new power brake booster, and chrome accessory brackets. A TH350 feeds a 10-bolt rear, and the undercarriage is every bit as nice as the rest of the car. The custom dual exhaust system features Flowmaster mufflers that sound awesome both at idle and at full song. It sits exactly right with just a flight rake and wears gorgeous polished American Racing wheels and 215/70/14 front and 225/70/14 rear blackwall radials. With a ton of eyeball appeal and performance to match its looks, this Camaro won''t last long on the showroom floor. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
