1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 description

Built for speed, this 1969 Camaro SS396 looks fast just sitting still. And while it's great-looking, the real story is under the hood, because this coupe packs a potent L78 396/375 engine, a 4-speed manual transmission, and enough horsepower to make you forget this car is more than 40 years old. Bathed in subtle Cortez Silver paint with black hockey sticks, nobody will be able to overlook this one.
Fully restored to a very high standard and still looking amazing today, this is a real X66 SS396 and they took their job seriously when it came time to put it together. The code 69 Cortez Silver paint and bodywork on this Camaro is subtle, no two ways about it, and maybe that's what you want when you have this much firepower on tap. From the blacked-out grille to the ducktail spoiler out back, this car nevertheless looks deadly serious about its purpose. Gaps are very good and someone definitely spent some time getting everything to line up properly, because on these cars you just can't cheat; that body line that runs between the wheel openings will give you away every time. Chrome and stainless have been restored or replaced with quality reproduction items, including all the badges and those cool inserts in the "gills" ahead of the rear wheels. If you want a Camaro that looks like a million bucks, this is definitely it.
The code 711 black bucket seat interior is also built to play. Nicely done with new seat covers, carpets and door panels, it's clean and quite stock-looking. The seat covers are in excellent condition with very little use since the restoration was completed, and the back seat looks untouched. All the correct performance equipment given the upgrades under the hood, including a factory tach in the dash and auxiliary gauges mounted on the console, means that this Camaro is ready to rock without needing to be asked twice. There's a big Hurst shifter for the 4-speed and it seems to work better and better the harder you drive. It's not loaded with options, but that probably wasn't a priority for the guy who was filling out the order form in 1969, although he did add an AM radio (which is probably due for an upgrade). The trunk carries a reproduction mat so it looks tidy.
As I mentioned, however, the real story on this one lives under the hood. The engine is a correct JH suffix code L78 375 horsepower 396 cubic inch big block, fully rebuilt and detailed for show. It's dressed properly expert detailing that even got the little stuff right, including a fully operational smog system. Chrome valve covers and an open-element air cleaner were standard equipment, with the block itself sporting traditional Chevy Orange. Up front, a massive radiator keeps the hot big block cool under the most demanding conditions, while a factory aluminum intake and 4-barrel Holley handle the fuel. And did we mention that it even has correct aluminum heads? Cast iron exhaust manifolds feed a factory-style chambered exhaust system, which replaces the original transverse muffler right behind the 12-bolt rear end. It's almost as clean underneath as it is up top, which is more proof that this car was restored right and detailing is show-worthy. Simple color-matched steel wheels with "dog dish" hubcaps always telegraph that a car means business, and they wear F70-14 Goodyear bias-ply tires to give it just the right stance.
There are a lot of nice '69 Camaros out there, but this one is truly a wolf in sheep's clothing. That big block combined with the 4-speed makes a truly potent combination; this is a 49-year-old car that can surprise some much newer hardware and still knock them dead on the show field. Call now!
