1969 Camaro, Base Coupe. This car underwent a frame off restoration in 2014, and was refreshed again in 2017.
A new 350 engine from GM Performance, base crate 5.7L with oil pain, water pump, spark plugs, HEI GM Distributor, and valve covers in 2014 (approx. 3, 000 total miles on it).
An Edelbrock Performer Intake with a 1406 Edelbrock 600 cfm carburetor was added this May. Also this May, new Delco spark plugs, MSD wires (custom), and an A-Team HEI distributor was added. A new fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator and gauge was also added (Mr. Gasket), and the carburetor was tuned for lean operation and nets about 15mpg. All new gaskets (intake, valve covers, carburetor, and thermostat), fluids, fuel hoses, vacuum lines, and overflow container we also installed. Radiator was flushed and filled with Prestone 50/50, and a 160 degree Edelbrock thermostat was added. Finished with Edelbrock air cleaner, valve covers, and oil breather and new PCV. Chrome plugs and screws from ARP finished the install.
Hoses were routed clean and clutter free to appropriate vacuum ports, and the car was timed to 12+ with 32+ using vacuum advance.
TH350 (3 speed) transmission rebuilt in 2014, in May of 2017 was drained, new JEGS filter replaced, gasket, and refill with Valvoline Synthetic. A new stainless Lokar Kick-Down cable was also routed to the carburetor (smash the gas and she drops into passing gear). New vacuum lines to carburetor were also ran. The output shaft seal was also replaced.
The rear end was drained, resealed, and refilled with Valvoline traditional 75w90 gear oil and GM Limited slip additive. It is a 10 bold posi-traction unit, and is spun with an aluminum driveshaft. U joints were new in 2014. Rear disc brakes are in very good condition. Shocks were new in 2014 and leaf springs appear to be original to the car.
Engine oil was changed with Valvoline 10w30 full synthetic and a WIX performance filter.
Custom headers (clearanced for power steering box), ceramic coated silver in 2014. JEGS spark plug wire looms, Optima Marine Grade blue top battery, and direct draw Sylvania Silver Star headlights in crystal housings were added.
Brake booster and heat protected flex bend steel brake lines with extensions and proper fittings lead to 4 wheel disc brakes.
American Racing Torque Thrust staggered aluminum wheels with very good BF Goodrich Tires (about 2, 000 miles on them).
Delco 2 wire modern alternator. Summit high torque starter, and an anti-theft (deadman) hidden switch.
New power steering pump and high ratio (quick turn) steering box.
I have the old intake, other parts, and Holley carburetor if wanted. Will be included if desired.
It has a true “X” pipe flowmaster exhaust from the headers back, over the axle, and dumped under the car. All stainless and professionally hung.
Global West Suspension Upgrades:
Front upper and lower tubular control arms with coil over shocks (not adjustable).
Subframe to rear frame links by Global West (stiffens entire car).
Global West body bushings and subframe connector kit.
Car is aligned and track straight as an arrow.
Lower ball joint rubber needs to be replaced, but ball joints are in excellent shape.
Front seats installed from a Chrysler Sebring (year estimated 2006). Headrests were removed and driver’s seat was mounted back for a tall man (can be put in factory mounts). The rear seat is original. Front and rear seats were wrapped in charcoal leather (not vinyl), and sewn/seamed to match the 1969 style. The front seats have integrated 3 point seatbelts. The rear seat has 3 new GM lap belts. The leather is in good shape, and shows normal wear for 3 years of use. The car smells good inside. No smoke smells, stains, or even a french fry between the seats.
Classic Air Industries R-134A ac unit with heater core was added in 2014. The unit was inspected and blows cold and fast. The center vent is cracked. It isn’t terrible to look at, but can be replaced for less than $100 dollars.
New high loop black carpet installed in 2014 with front and rear door panels, headliner, and the majority of the rubber was replaced, (although some is original).
