This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS / SS Big Block is pro-touring perfection
The Camaro currently listed on Bring a trailer is anything but stock thanks to a 454 bored to 468 cubic inches, a leviathan of an engine that rocks an Eagle crankshaft, Eagle connecting rods and 10: 1 compression JE pistons. The 7.7-liter engine sweetens the deal even further with a custom valve drive, Edelbrock RPM intake manifold, 950 cfm Quick Fuel carburetor, 340cc Brodix 2X heads, MSD distributor and manifolds. Hooker exhaust.
More powerful than any factory Camaros from 1969, this unique restoration is pro-touring royalty in every way. The five-speed manual transmission, a Tremec TKO600, is fitted with an 11-inch Hays clutch for good measure while the sucker-squeeze-bang-blow is channeled 12-bolt rear with 4.10 speeds per a lightweight aluminum drive shaft.
Hardware modifications also include Magnaflow mufflers for the 3.0-inch JBA Racing exhaust system, a front suspension kit with tubular control arms from Martz, and a Detroit Speed Quadra-Link rear suspension system with adjustable shocks. and a Panhard bar. Wilwood’s perforated and vented brake discs take care of stopping, and grip should be pretty impressive for such an old car thanks to Pirelli’s 245/40 and 345/30 tires wrapped around the 18-inch Fiske Profil- 5 five-spoke wheels.
Finished with blue and white hockey stick-inspired stripes on houndstooth fabric inserts and black leather, the ‘Maro is currently equipped with an outdated Sony main unit and amenities such as power windows and Vintage Air conditioning. A Hurst white ball shifter completes the Budnik three-spoke steering wheel and AutoMeter Pro Comp Ultra Lite gauges which include an odometer that displays 4,000 miles (6,437 kilometers).
Clearly not your average RS / SS restoration, this muscular pony car costs $ 45,000 at time of report with five days of auction remaining.
