  • Rotisserie Restoration
  • 427ci V8
  • Automatic Transmission
  • Daytona Yellow Over Black Interior

Offered here is a true, well-documented 1969 Chevrolet Camaro COPO in factory Daytona yellow over black. The odometer reading of 66 miles is the distance traveled since the NOS-GM-parts-only restoration was completed. Factory options include the (code 9561) High-Performance Unit 427/425 V-8 engine backed by an M40 Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmission and 4.10:1 Positraction rear axle. In addition to the original performance upgrades, it is fitted with a special ducted hood and power front disc brakes. Documented with a Protect–O–Plate, this example still retains its original motor and transmission. A nationally recognized example, the Camaro has received multiple awards including Gold at the Camaro Nationals, Carlisle Pennsylvania 2008, Best of Show at Super Chevy Indianapolis 2008, and Hemmings Musclecar of the Year at Scottsdale Arizona in 2008.

The car’s Daytona yellow non-metallic paint was professionally refreshed and it shows: smooth finish, an absence of flaws, and proper factory gloss across every surface. This includes the steel wheels (with small chrome hubcaps), an under-the-radar COPO feature, as well as the cowl-induction hood, a somewhat more above-the-radar feature. There’s just something perfect about a COPO all in yellow. All factory badging-which is to say the same factory badging as any lesser 1969 would wear-is in place and properly mounted. In particular, the blue bowtie emblems front and rear are classic Chevrolet livery. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome bumpers and body trim are flawless; cabin glass and all lighting lenses are pristine. Period-correct GoodYear® F70-14 raised-white-letter Wide Tread tires are mounted on the aforementioned steel wheels.

Inside, black is the color theme for the base-level interior. Horizontally pleated black vinyl covers the two front bucket seats (no console) and rear bench; the upholstery and seatbacks are in perfect condition. Door trim echoes the upholstery design and includes a chrome door handle, window crank, and a single “Camaro” emblem. Black looped cabin carpeting (protected by matching carpet mats) also shows no wear, and the headliner is perfectly installed. A two-spoke black steering wheel with simple blue-bowtie emblem frames the black padded dash and square-design, 3-opening instrument cluster. Included are the fuel gauge, a 120-mph speedometer, and a 5,700-rpm-redline tachometer, the latter two gauges branded with GM’s AC® logo. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is mounted on the steering column. This is a radio-delete car. (Please view the close-up photography in the gallery to appreciate the like-new condition of every interior surface.)

The trunk is as perfectly finished as the remainder of the car. Factory flecked-style paint covers the interior surfaces and the GoodYear spare tire matches those on the ground.

Under the hood is a sight to make any Chevy Performance fan’s heart skip a beat: the Chevrolet 427-cubic-inch, 425-horsepower big block. Resplendent in Chevy-orange engine-block paint, with massive chrome valve covers, under the open-topped, “427”-identified air cleaner, this is the height of factory Chevrolet power in the late Sixties. The entire engine bay-including exhaust headers, intake manifold, radiator, and alternator- is spotless. All surfaces (including zinc-finish brake componentry) wear their factor-correct finishes, and all components, wiring, and hoses are properly in place. Viewed from below, the story’s the same: perfectly clean with no sign of any flaws. The mix of properly turned-out surfaces on the lower engine and transmission, full dual-exhaust system, suspension components-even the correct amount of factory-like overspray of the body color-is simply outstanding. Needless to say, there is no rust anywhere.
