The restomod niche gives rise to some truly inspired pairings of ideas and workmanship, and this 1969 Chevrolet SS Restomod is one awe-inspiring example. Use whatever criteria you want, be it curb appeal, thoroughly well-planned engineering or abundant power, and this vintage Chevy absolutely delivers.
You'll notice that this Camaro is something special with your very first glance. It wears a magnetic red exterior that's ornamented with broad black striping over its cowl hood and rear decklid, where a tastefully subtle spoiler is perched. The featured stance strikes a great balance - lowered just enough to provide an advantageous center of gravity and an unmistakable touch of customization, while leaving enough wheel clearance to navigate everyday driving situations. A tasteful blend of factory and aftermarket badging adds to the overall appearance and those SS emblems centered in the front grille, front fenders and taillight panel really pop. That same attention to detail is on display throughout the entire exterior, where you'll find all the chrome ornamentation that helped make the model so coveted in its heyday still intact and in top notch condition. A closer look will reveal that the exterior alignment on this Chevy is on point - the body panels blend together nicely and the gaps surrounding the doors, hood and deck lid are tight and even.
Inside waits one seriously inspired interior. You'll find evidence of skilled customization blended with the model's already abundantly appealing aesthetics nearly everywhere, starting with the seating, which offers front buckets and a rear bench seat wrapped in red and black leather covers that tie in perfectly with the door panels to each side. A clean center console with a woodgrain accent runs between the buckets, positioning one of the styling hallmarks of the Camaros of this era - the horseshoe shifter - within easy reach. The instrument panel just beyond the aftermarket steering wheel on its chrome Ididit column now houses an array of white-faced AutoMeter gauges that are surrounded by a chrome panel, and a Pioneer stereo resides at the center, teaming with aftermarket speakers in the package tray to deliver a quality audio experience. Just below, an underdash air conditioning system was seamlessly installed to keep things nice and comfortable inside the cabin.
This stellar Chevy fully delivers on the promise of performance implied by its bold, aggressive exterior. An LS3 6.2 liter V8 lurks below the hood. Armed with a pair of STK aluminum heads, a performance cam and a 4-barrel carb, it offers an outstanding level of power as it sits in just the eye-catching, well-detailed compartment you'd expect based on the rest of the car. It exhales into a pair of long tube aftermarket headers and pairs with a 4-speed automatic 4L65E transmission whose overdrive gear provides excellent manners at highway speeds. The added TCI front and rear suspensions are show quality and feature coilovers at both ends to provide a refined ride with no binding around corners - take a glance below and you'll see one very impressive undercarriage. Power steering makes this performance machine easy to navigate while power brakes at all four corners that are equipped with sizable Wilwood rotors provide excellent stopping ability and heat dissipation. A set of jaw-dropping Foose wheels - 17"" in front and 18"" in back - wrapped with Nitto tires add just the right finishing touch to this exemplary classic.
From front to back, the planning and execution that went into making this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restomod a stellar ride is really something to behold and must be seen to be fully appreciated. Call today!
