1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396/350 L34
1969 was the third and final year for the first generation of Chevrolet's ultra-popular ‘Camaro’. Perhaps no other body style defines Chevrolet and their place in the muscle car world as does the 1969 Camaro RS/SS, as it was also the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car that year. The Camaro RS/SS model featured special vacuum-operated headlight covers w/ three translucent louvers, fender striping, back-up lights below the bumper, chrome wheel-well moldings, simulated rear louvers, black grille & rocker panels, as well as accented air vents and taillights, all of which distinguished the ‘RS’ package. Simply stated, it is an absolutely beautiful & extremely iconic design!
‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is very happy to offer you this absolutely gorgeous 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396/350 L34, finished in its factory correct Daytona Yellow (Code 76) w/ the Black Sport Stripe Package, wrapped around an absolutely stunning Deluxe Yellow Houndstooth interior w/ console. Talk about ‘eye-candy!’ This Camaro underwent a complete & total ground up restoration, and the entire car was disassembled and restored to show-quality standards. It retains its original cowl tag w/ the X11 code, as well as Code 76 for its original Daytona Yellow exterior. The body is super straight all of the way around the car, and a domed hood was added during the restoration, which looks quite mean and gives the car that no-nonsense appearance. The front & rear spoilers round out a look that means all business, all of the time. The Daytona Yellow paint is absolutely brilliant, and literally explodes in the sunlight. All of the chrome and stainless-steel trim is in show-quality condition throughout. She sits on 14” Rally SS Wheels wrapped w/ Goodyear F70-14 Polyglas tires, just like she did back in 1969. You can walk around this car a hundred times, and she looks amazing from every angle. The undercarriage is beautifully detailed from front to back and is nearly as nice as the topside of the car.
Pop open the driver’s door and you will find an absolutely gorgeous Deluxe Yellow Houndstooth interior that harkens back to the time when Chevrolet built these cars right! Interior features include beautiful yellow/black houndstooth upholstery, matching yellow door panels, full center console w/ woodgrain insert, Hurst 4-speed shifter, white Hurst shift knob, console gauge package, rosewood steering wheel, black vinyl dash w/ beautiful woodgrain accents, etc. All of the original guages appear to be in good working order, and the hidden headlights function perfectly. This interior is factory correct in appearance and in wonderful condition from front to back. Please look closely at the photos to see how beautiful this Deluxe Yellow Houndstooth interior truly is.
Now, let’s get to the heart of this classic Bowtie muscle car, shall we?
Pop open the hood, and inside the beautifully detailed engine bay resides the 396ci/350hp L34 V8 powerplant, lathered in Chevy orange w/ a fully functional cowl induction air cleaner, chrome valve covers, original cast-iron exhaust manifolds, and correct GM components throughout. The motor is linked to the Muncie M21 4-speed transmission, which feeds power to the asphalt-shredding 12-bolt rear-end w/ 3.73 gears. She fires right up, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she runs, drives & performs beautifully in every way. This ’69 Camaro RS/SS is extremely quick and has loads of power & torque! The power steering and power front disc brakes make driving around town effortless, and when you get her out of the freeway, she tracks straight and true. If you don’t like attention, then this is not the car for you, because anywhere that you decide to go in this gorgeous Camaro, there will be a crowd gathered around snapping photos w/ their smart phones. As I previously stated, she is 100% ‘eye-candy’!
