This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro has a mean forward-leaning stance of a street machine
And it has the performance-built stroker motor, Powerglide transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes to be an awesome quarter-mile king. And while it has the components to rule the blacktop, it’s the bright blue style that makes it a cool all-around classic.
The factory never offered a blue with this much vibrant style, and so this coupe will always be an instant standout. But the clean lines and bright chrome bumpers remind us that this Camaro also never loses the classic style we love. Plus, there are the right vintage performance elements, like the super scoop cowl hood, deep chin spoiler up front, and full-length rear spoiler. And speaking of performance, you just know you love the stance. This one tries to go a bit incognito by using classic Rally wheels, but the 14/15-inch front/rear stagger, the lowered front suspension, and extra wide rear tires send an unmissable powerful message.
The interior gets the fundamentals right with a good look to the door panels, upholstery, carpeting, and dash. There’s even an AM/FM/CD stereo to keep it all quite inviting for everyone. But you also know this coupe is really about the driver. You have stock-style items like the front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a horseshoe shifter. These are joined by upgrades like the AutoMeter quad auxiliary gauge package, a Grant GT sports steering wheel, and a large column-mounted tach.
The engine bay has a clean and mean style. This is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 that has been enhanced and fortified with forged pistons, a Comp Cams camshaft, roller rockers, Proline aluminum heads, cat valve covers, an aluminum intake, and topped with a Proform 750 four-barrel carburetor. And a nice set of headers add power while feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. There are also nice supporting components like a Griffin aluminum radiator, an electric fan, steel braided lines with AN fittings, an MSD ignition, and a new fuel tank. It’s a powerful setup and the Powerglide transmission is a terrific way to have a competition-worthy level of stoutness to handle it all. We’re even told it feeds a Detroit Locker 9-inch rear with 4.11 gears for powerful and confident take-offs. As you look underneath you’ll spot added strength in the subframe connector and traction bars. And also don’t forget to check out the upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes.
