The Model -When Chevrolet reintroduced its re-born Camaro for 2010, it was apparent that the designers were bringing up an updated version of probably the most iconic 1969 designs. While some say that the 1967-68 editions were designed more by committee than stylists, the 1969 Camaro was able to break out of that mold just a tiny bit. Between unbeatable power-teams, striking high-impact colors and optional packages to dazzle the competition, Chevrolet had no problem selling these cars, even when the second generation's delay forced Chevy to extend the production cycle for this model well into the 1970 model year. Chevrolet has always been an innovator and in the last 10 years they have been the leader in providing "plug and play" high-performance engines that deliver awesome horsepower and are emissions compliant. One of the stars of this program is the ZZ-427, which is truly the "King" of V8 engines. Originally produced in the late 1960's, given modern engineering to perfection, this is the ultimate choice for builders and those who had a need for speed.
The Car - One of the most spectacular colors offered on the 1969 Camaro was Daytona Yellow, a vibrant powerful hue that was in your face. Rarely ordered was the houndstooth interior in that lively yellow color. That is how this superb Camaro was originally produced at the Norwood, Ohio, plant, but today after a no-expense spared restoration, it has so much more. With a fresh crate 427 V8 under the hood, it is backed up by close-ratio Muncie "M21" four speed, this is a car that does not just look good, it moves like greased lightning. Other highlights found on this Camaro include the 12-bolt rear-end with 3.73 gears, disc brakes on all four corners, modern R134A air-conditioning, factory tachometer and related gauges, and a basic Delco AM radio. This is a genuine X11 car and has all the SS components including the steering wheel on a tilt-column, and dashboard with simulated wood-grain applique, center-shift console with a highly polished shift knob. Exterior appointments include black vinyl top, proper SS stripes, Rally wheels with Firestone Polyglas tires as well as front and rear spoilers. Kept in a climate controlled storage since its completion and used only on special occasions, this is honestly one of the most attractive and rare RS/SS Camaros you will ever have a chance to own.
