69 Pro-Touring Camaro

1969 Pro-Touring Camaro SS

This is one of those rare Camaros that perfectly blends the best of 1969 and 2011. It’s not quite radical enough to even be called a restomod, but there are plenty of upgrades that make the most of the vintage performance hardware underneath.  It was a frame off restoration with a 396 big block (375 HP) with an L89 head paired with a Tremec  5 speed.  Under the hood all the details are correct, from the chrome valve covers and air cleaner with correct decals, to the reproduction hoses with tower clamps, to the reproduction Delco battery.  Noteworthy upgrades include power steering, a massive aluminum radiator, and a hand crafted set of Sanderson headers with 2 ½ inch exhaust.  The chassis has been rebuilt to original specifications.  There’s a disc brake at all four corners, peeking out from behind those gorgeous 18-inch Torque Thrust replicas. Tires are 225/40/18 front and 235/45/18 rear, which give the car just enough rake to keep the nose down.  The dazzling red interior has been restored to better-than-new condition throughout .  The dash pad and the headliner are new and the original gauges were rebuilt and reinstalled.  There’s a factory AM radio in the dash, but hanging underneath you’ll find a rare accessory 8-track player.  As far as 1969 Camaros go, this one is a home-run in every way that matters.
