This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro underwent a meticulous restoration and enhancement over several years, initiated after its purchase in 2003. The refurbishment process included a fresh coat of paint and a reupholstery of the interior, in addition to the fitting of a twin-turbo 400ci V8 engine, a Currie 9-inch rear axle, a coilover suspension system, and all-around disc brakes. The vehicle appeared on BaT in May 2021 and is reported to have received further enhancements such as an engine overhaul, integration of a Holley EFI system, a Tremec TKX five-speed manual gearbox, Ikon Motorsport seating, 18-inch ESR multi-piece rims, and new exhaust components. It boasts a metallic blue finish, with both front and rear spoilers, Dakota Digital gauges, a Hurst gearshift, a protective roll bar, and additional features as outlined further. This Camaro is currently available with the original seats removed and holds a valid California title under the seller’s name.

The seller has confirmed the installation of an aluminum bonnet, front valance, and wings, with the rear panel, boot lid, doors, and inner wings replaced prior to a metallic blue respray executed between 2014 and 2017. Decorative hockey stick motifs embellish the wings and doors, and the car features front and rear spoilers, SS emblems, tinted windows, and chrome bumpers for an enhanced aesthetic.

Mounted on 18×9.5-inch front and 18×10.5-inch rear ESR alloy wheels, the vehicle is shod with Federal and Nitto tires respectively. It benefits from a finely tuned adjustable coilover setup, tubular front A-arms, and a four-link rear suspension. Additional enhancements include a new front subframe and connectors, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, elevated front spindles, and rear mini-tubs, coupled with a Wilwood brake master cylinder and Corvette C5-derived brake calipers clamping 12-inch front and 13-inch rear discs.

Inside, the Ikon Motorsport bucket seats are dressed in black vinyl with plaid fabric insets, complemented by Sparco four-point safety harnesses attached to a rear roll bar. The dashboard is adorned with woodgrain panels, and under current stewardship, the cabin’s trim and carpeting have been replaced.

A wooden-rimmed steering wheel aligns with a floor-mounted Hurst gear lever. Dakota Digital instruments replace the original dials, with a cautionary light and a boost pressure gauge mounted on the dashboard. The five-digit odometer indicates 1675 miles, with roughly 5000 miles accrued during the present ownership. Total mileage remains uncertain.

In the rear, the battery has been strategically relocated, accompanied by cutoff mechanisms for the electrical and fuel systems, ensuring enhanced performance and safety.

According to the seller, the replacement 400ci V8 was rebuilt with higher compression pistons and fitted with a Holley EFI system. It is reportedly fitted with the following components:

  • Aluminum World Products block
  • SCAT crankshaft
  • Crower titanium connecting rods
  • CP pistons
  • 18-Degree Brodix cylinder heads
  • Hydraulic roller camshaft
  • Brodix intake manifold
  • Edelbrock throttle body intake elbow
  • Twin Garrett ball bearing turbochargers
  • Twin intercoolers
  • External oil cooler
  • Aluminum flywheel

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a Tremec TKX five-speed manual transmission that was reportedly installed in 2022 in place of the previously fitted TKO 600 unit. A replacement clutch assembly is said to have been added at that time, and further equipment includes an aluminum driveshaft and differential housing as well as a 9″ Currie rear end with a Torsen limited-slip differential. The replacement exhaust system features a crossover pipe as well as stainless-steel mufflers.
