This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS tribute has only been driven only about 5,500 miles since its frame-off restoration
… and so it has a sharp-looking style with plenty of iconic features. But that’s not what you really love. Instead, what has your eye are the restomod upgrades with the custom interior, power windows, four-wheel disc brakes, and the five-speed… oh yeah… the serious power from the supercharged V8 under the hood!
There were many reasons to love the 1969 Camaro because it had some exclusive touches that weren’t even shared with other first-gen years. Chevy seemed to enhance the speedy appearance of what looked like vapor trails shooting off the fenders. Plus, the Rally Sport hidden headlight front end was the most distinct ever, and this was the debut of the cowl hood. So this one makes sure to upgrade these so the coupe is absolutely noticed. Another great 1969 exclusive was the Daytona Yellow paint. So this was upgraded to the extra-bold color during the restoration (even the undercarriage is clean and bold.) Not only is this almost vibrant enough to glow in the dark, but it makes for a great way to showcase the black Z/28-style racing stripes. The black front spoiler, D80 rear spoiler, bright chrome bumpers, and polished American Racing 17-inch Torq Thrust wheels are all part of a package that look crisp, clean, powerful, and absolutely awesome.
The interior gets even bolder with the custom two-tone upholstery. While the bright yellow catches your eye, you’ll also eventually recognize the added style and substance. It’s in everything from the cool Rally Sport stitched in the seatbacks to the modern sports car bolstering. You’ll also appreciate luxury features like power windows and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for your iPod. There are more upgrades that are nicely integrated, like the classic sports steering wheel that’s now on a tilt column, and a modern shifter is now in the center console. Plus, there’s not only the auxiliary readout quad pack on the center console, but now the ashtray just above them holds a boost gauge. It gets you ready for something special under the hood.
The engine bay has the kind of presentation that will make you proud to lift the hood at car shows. It’s exceptionally well presented with the color-matched firewall, smooth black inner walls, and plenty of polished components of the V8 heart. You’ve got a powerful 350 cubic-inch V8 that has been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, and aluminum heads. And of course, there’s a Weiand blower in the middle of it all to supercharge this power package. It’s supported by great pieces, like an MSD pro billet distributor, steel braided lines with AN fittings, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. This is a terrific power package, and it knows how to announce it with Hooker headers feeding a 3-inch stainless exhaust with MagnaFlow mufflers. And the upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission means you get to take better control over its power and soundtrack. Add in power steering, modern sport tires, and the four-wheel power disc brakes to give you confident control of this enhanced coupe.
