1969 Chevrolet Camaro Description

If you don't get hung up on things like matching numbers and factory specifications, there are some seriously nice cars to be had. Take this 1969 Camaro, for example. Originally an X-11 car, it's now a cackling Z/28 look-a-like that provides incredible fun without the inflated price tag. And isn't having fun what this is supposed to be all about?This is an original code 57 Fathom Green car, but that wasn't very exciting. During the repaint some years ago, it received a handsome coat of Corvette Bronze, which is not only rare, but very attractive today. Understated yet representing performance at the highest levels, a car like this is easy to underestimate on the street. Finished quite nicely, it's a high-quality driver-grade car that doesn't get hung up on the esoterics of car collecting and instead just says, "Hey, let's go have some fun!" Black Z/28 stripes give it the performance look that you've always wanted and a cowl induction hood with matching deck lid spoiler give it Z/28 credentials. Panel fit is above average, particularly for one of these cars, and aside from a few minor flaws, it's a car that will show quite well at the local cruise night. Nice chrome bumpers, some shiny stainless trim, and reproduction Z/28 badges give the car a very complete look that suggests someone was paying attention to the little stuff. Yes, it's been driven and has some age on it, but we like the way this car looks an awful lot.The black interior is more highly detailed than we've come to expect from a lot of restorations, with high-quality reproduction seat covers that look fantastic. This was originally an X11 car, so it's possible that the center console was added during the restoration, but back in the golden days of muscle cars, anything was possible. It is, however, no-frills inside, sticking to only the basics required for going fast and making the driver grin like an escaped convict. The woodgrained appliques on the center console warm up the all-black interior and the original gauges are in good condition and a set of auxiliary gauges were added on the console. There's an AM/FM/cassette stereo radio that was installed some years ago and still sounds OK, but the rest seems pretty much the way the factory intended. The trunk is nicely finished with correct spatter paint and a reproduction mat.Going fast is easy with a great-running 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood. Obviously you weren't getting a 350 in a Z/28, but a small block is a small block, and it fits in without any drama. With chrome dress-up items, bright Chevy Orange paint on the block, and a modern dual master cylinder, this is a nicely sorted Camaro that you can drive like a real car, not some fragile toy. An Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor handle intake duties, while block-hugging headers and a reproduction exhaust system provide the sound and fury. A quick-shifting 4-speed manual transmission powers a 12-bolt rear end so this one really is set up for combat. Attractive Rally wheels are really the only smart choice on a car like this and carry fat 215/65/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.Everyone wants a numbers-matching car, but did you ever think to wonder why? Forget about investments and values and focus on the fun that you should be having. I think you'll find this car does it better than most. Call today!
