Classic Car Overview
1969 Chevrolet Camaro $84,999
The Candy Apple Red Camaro is result of a 20 year long dream.
This custom coupe features a three-inch chop that there’s more to this Camaro than just a charm top. It has a hidden roll cage using three hidden tubes running across the roof between the confines of the top and headliner, two additional tube: run lengthwise along the roof and tie in to a hoop under the rear window, which is connected to some cross members behind the back seat.
The complete front end was removed and a Pro Street front clip from TCI was added. With the fenders and hood back on, curvature on the front fenders were increased by cutting them down 2.75 inches at the grill. Looking at the car you get the illusion that the front has been lengthened by a few inches. Hood has extended and ﬂared it to match with the front fenders. The stock cowl induction hood was heightened, lengthened and curved to match the contour of the new hood shape giving the car a pro stocker look, At the same time the ﬁrewall was cleaned and a rad support was modiﬁed to ﬁt the new radiator.
The door handles were shaved, replaced with solenoids. The door glass sits 1.75 inches inside the top when closed. they need to roll down before the door pops out. The whole procedure is done automatically (not unlike the door glass on a Porsche Boxster) at the touch of a button on the key fob thanks to electronic genius of Vincent Fontaine.
Among the hidden details are inner and outer rear fender together to form one piece and welded fender lips. The undercarriage was smoothed and painted to match topside.
A smaller, more ﬂuid, rear spoiler was fabricated and the front and rear fascia’s were reworked to house the front driving lights and exhaust outlets. the Harwood bumpers were cut down to
give as tight a ﬁt as possible while still retaining bumpers and then painted RM Karissma to match the body.
You can't have one of the most radical Camaros in the country and then leave it with a stock power plant. This Camaro has a BBC 598 by Scott Shaﬁroff Race Engines. This baby cranks out +/- 800 horsepower and a whopping 800 lb. of torque on pump gas. A mechanical fuel pump feeds the juice to the Holley 950cfm HP series carburetor through stainless steel hoses. Old faithful, a Turbo—Hydromantic 400 with full manual body valve and reverse pattern transfers the potter to a 9” Detroit Locker with 3.50:1 gears running 35 spline Moser axles. It has the option to shift through the Mastershift paddle shifters. Lemons Headers feed into a custom-made SS exhaust with electric cut outs.
Putting all the power to the tarmac are a set of 325/25/19 tires mounted on 12-inch-wide Jason Rushforth Livewire Wheel that were CNC'd to specs. Steering chores are handles by a set of 245/35/19 tires mounted on 8.5-inch wide mags.
Wilwood brakes with polished calipers add to the show touch and the 6 piston from calipers riding on 13-inch discs were chosen for stopping the brute. Twelve inch discs with 4 piston calipers were chosen for the rear allowing 15” rims to throw some slicks on.
The front seats were pirated from a 2010 Sebring Convertible for their seatback shoulder belt system then the seats were cut down four inches for a sportier look. A hand built center console.
Kenwood Excelon DNX—6980 head unit, Focal Utopia 165W front speakers and matching tweeters are mounted in the doors. They’re powered by an Xtant X604 (2x300 watts) amp. Two 10-inch Xlant 2x X104 subwoofers, sitting in the trunk, handle the bass and are powered by an Xtant X1001 one-thousand-watt amp, At the touch of a button the subwoofer swings upward to reveal the 15 gallon fuel cell. Billet hood and trunk hinges and the rear tail lights are from Fesler.
