Chevy’s first generation Camaro might just be one of the coolest cars ever created. Extremely fun to drive, with plenty of power and striking good looks, these classics enjoy a cult-like following and provide one of the best ownership experiences on the planet. That unique combination of approachability and appeal has significantly contributed to the brand’s continued rise in popularity. And restorations like this smooth yellow coupe, with its powerful small block and substantially improved suspension, are always hot sellers. Are you one of the many enthusiasts tirelessly searching for a captivating pony car? Don’t miss your chance to claim this killer Camaro resto-mod!
Recently built into a lean, mean pavement-pounding machine, this spectacular Chevy wears a ground-up restoration that features a number of thoughtful upgrades which modernize both its performance and appeal. The car’s transformation started with a full, factory-built frame and solid, 1969 Camaro body that had never seen significant rust or major damage. After some high quality metalwork, every one of that body’s panels was aligned to better-than-factory fit, making all of the car’s seams narrow and precise. With those well-done panels as close to perfect as possible, neon yellow basecoat was sealed in a thick clearcoat and buffed to an immaculate shine. And today, this F1 sits as one eye catching classic that mixes major street presence with lethal curb appeal!
When it comes to purity of form, I really can’t think of a better looking classic than Chevrolet’s ’69 Camaro. And this super clean resto-mod features a host of subtle upgrades that feel so natural they could’ve rolled down GM’s famed Norwood assembly lines. At the front of the car, a flat black grille centers traditional halogen headlights above a showroom-fresh bumper, crystal clear parking lamps and a stylish D80 chin spoiler. Above that grille, a famous cowl induction hood leads the eye to like-new glass that’s framed in straight stainless trim, capped with body-matched drip rails and cleared by matte Detroit Speed wipers. At the sides of that hood, sculpted fenders hang a correct chrome mirror and traditional chrome door handles between small marker lamps. And at the back of those fenders, a second showroom-fresh bumper reflects segmented taillights, a vivid bowtie emblem and a stylish D80 trunk spoiler.
Toss this F1’s hood and you’ll find a hot Chevrolet 350 that, with the help of a Comp Xtreme Energy cam, makes a solid 450 horsepower. At the top of the clean mill, a polished air cleaner, which is fitted with a cool bowtie spinner, funnels wind into a Holley 750 double pumper that’s seated above Goodridge fluid lines, a Jegs pressure gauge and a coated Edelbrock fuel pump. Below that Holley, an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake ports an optimum air/fuel mixture into Dart Sportsman II heads that hide high quality roller rockers under polished valve covers and chrome Mr. Gasket breathers. At the back of that intake, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor sequences spark between an MSD coil, Painless wiring and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Opposite that distributor, a sturdy March pulley system spins a beefy Weiand water pump between a chrome alternator and aluminum timing cover. At the sides of those pulleys, coated headers send spent gases down a well-mannered exhaust system. And in front of those headers, a new radiator swirls coolant around an electric puller fan, polished ancillary components and a reproduction Delco battery. Mechanically, the small block snarls and barks just as well as the vintage piece it replaced. And aesthetically, the car’s clean, body-matched engine compartment is nicely detailed, displaying no significant leaks or reliability issues.
At the bottom of this awesome resto-mod, a familiar Muncie 4-speed twists torque through a traditional 12-bolt that’s equipped with big, 3.73 gears. Holding that top notch drivetrain off the ground is a restored, mostly stock suspension which sports Hotchkis springs, Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks and a beefy Hotchkis sway bar. Power-assisted stops are provided by a combination of drilled rotors, billet Aerospace Components calipers and factory-style drums. A manual steering system lends a classic feel to the chassis’ modern athleticism. And spent gases flow through true-dual pipes to an H-shaped crossover and mean Flowmaster dual-chamber mufflers. Aesthetically, the car’s solid floorpans are clean and freshly restored in a resilient layer of bright yellow undercoating. All the right details, like a fresh stainless fuel tank, Jegster subframe connectors and pliable Hotchkis bushings, provide fully-sorted reliability. And chrome American Racing Torq Thrust IIs route all the small block’s power through 235/45ZR17 front, and 255/45ZR17 rear, Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs.
Inside this cool Camaro you’ll find a restored Black interior that’s one of the most stylish and functional cockpits to ever roll down GM’s assembly lines. The completely rebuilt front bucket and rear bench seats feel as firm as the day they left the showroom. In front of those seats, a bright yellow dash hangs a straight and crack-free pad above a Detroit Speed instrument panel, Auto Meter Pro Comp Ultra Lite gauges and a modern Panasonic head unit. Beneath that dash, modern, cut-pile carpet bridges the gap between a traditional Hurst shifter and stylish faux carbon fiber sill plates. At the sides of that carpet, standard door panels hang pristine stainless trim and new chrome hardware between correct “Camaro” emblems. In front of the driver, a polished Billet Specialties steering wheel laps a tilting Ididit column. And behind the passengers, a custom package tray hangs large Infinity speakers above a fully restored trunk.
The sale of this red hot resto-mod includes an original Protect-O-Plate, an original owner''s manual, a pile restoration receipts, a few restoration photos and a few component manuals.
