Used 1969 Chevrolet Camaro for sale in Olathe, Kansas
This Camaro has taken the term “resto-mod to a whole new level by creating a unique “Old School/New School resto-mod theme. A perfect example of how special this car is was made clear at a recent car show in Ottawa Kansas where three professional judges named this Camaro as one of the top 10 cars out of over 2,200 other cars at the show. A solid example of how well the general public loves this car is exemplified by it recently winning Hagertys “Best of Show/Peoples Choice award at the Kansas City Royal World Championship Barbeque Car Show at The Kansas NASCAR Speedway. Being truly one-of-a-kind this 69 Camaro absolutely represents the very best of everything a muscle car should be and is a true manifestation of what can only be called a Super Muscle Car. From the massive Fuel Injected 598 Cubic Inch Dart Big Block stroker powerplant making nearly 1,000 horsepower and 858 ft.lbs. of torque (with no turbos, no nitrous, no supercharger), the incredible glassy paint & body, to the perfect low-profile stance this Camaro nails it. Starting as a one-owner low mileage California car this Camaro was taken completely apart and put back together over a 4-year build period by the current owner and other professionals with nothing but the highest quality parts, materials, and craftsmanship. Here are all the details: Paint and Body: The incredible paint and body work was done by Color on Wheels in Denver who specialize in 6-figure classic car builds. Instead of the usual Cortez Silver a PPG silver used by Audi on their 2006 R8 supercar was chosen. One aspect of the meticulous work done by Color on Wheels is the 170 hours of blocking and sanding they took to create the incredible glass-like finish on the Camaro that they are so well known for. The original sheet metal was in near perfect condition so very little metal work was necessary. However, the notoriously leaky rear window seams common to 69 Camaros had to go. They were therefore cut out; new sheet metal was welded in and then ground to perfection. Hence, no seams between the rear window and the trunk lid. Also, if you look closely you can see how all the body lines have been “sharpened from front to back and top to bottom. This not only makes this Camaro body unique from all others by making it look far sleeker, but it creates a shadowing effect in the paint that Chip Foose is also known for. Engine: At the heart of it all is a Dart “Big M Siamese block bored and stroked to 598 cubic inches with Dart Pro 1 CNC 355cc aluminum heads and stainless-steel valves. The heads inner workings are covered by beautiful custom billet aluminum valve covers with engraved Chevrolet racing emblems. The camshaft is a Crower .715 lift mechanical roller with Crower roller lifters and Crower roller rockers. The custom-made aluminum Hogan Racing EFI intake manifold is an absolute work of art and was hand-fabricated by none other than Tim Hogan himself. This amazing fuel injection intake manifold has a 1650 CFM throttle body with fuel supplied by a perfectly tuned Comp Cams “FAST XFI electronic fuel injection system. Massive 2.25 headers are also custom and were specifically designed and built for this engine by Dan Lemmons. A Moroso mechanical vacuum pump pulls unwanted crankcase oil vapor pressure from under the pistons and into a stainless-steel collection can. Transmission: The Transmission is a custom-made HD version of Chevrolets famous road racing transmission of the late 60s, the Muncie M-22 “Rock Crusher 4-speed. Youll love the close ratio shift and that iconic road racing whine as you go through the gears. Clutch: A silky smooth Centerforce “DYAD Dual Disc clutch & pressure plate with aluminum flywheel. Rear End: Narrowed Currie 9 Ford with a Detroit Tru-Trac Posi, 350 gears, & Currie 31-spline axles. Cooling System: Griffin Dual core double pass aluminum radiator with twin 2200 CFM Spal electric fans. A Moroso high volume mechanical water pump is driven by a Billet Specialties serpentine belt. Chassis: The original front and rear clips are still in place but were stripped and painted. The Uni-Body is welded together with subframe connectors and Detroit Speed & Engineering (DSE) mini-tubs have replaced the original wheel tubs that make room for massive rear tires. A 6-point DSE roll bar has also been welded into the chassis for added strength as well as roll over protection. Carbon fiber on the driver and passenger “T-Bone protection bars protect the paint from in and out wear and tear. Suspension: A Detroit Speed & Engineering “Quadra-Link and Panhard Rod with Koni coil-overs provide tremendous stability through this fully adjustable rear suspension. Up front is 2 Drop Spindles along with Global West tubular upper and lower control arms with fully adjustable QA-1 Coil-Overs. Brakes: Stopping power is provided by Wilwood 13 drilled and slotted discs with 6-piston calipers in front and 4 pistons in the rear. A Hydra-Tech hydro boost works with the DSE Series 600 Power Steering pump and creates instant stopping power for all those pistons. A Wilwood reservoir provides the brake fluid. Fuel System: A Detroit Speed & Engineering 1000 HP stainless steel 19-gallon fuel tank with twin submerged Aeromotive fuel pumps send fuel via stainless steel lines to the engine. A Cadillac CTS fuel control in the trunk perfectly regulates fuel flow and eliminates the need for a fuel return system. An Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator keeps the pressure at a consistent 45 PSI at the fuel injection rails and an Aeromotive cannister style fuel filter traps any contaminants. Fuel Injection: The Fuel Air Spark Technology (FAST) Fuel injection is electronically controlled by their XFI 2.0 ECU and is assisted by an O2 sensor in the exhaust stream. An Idle Air Controller (IAC) makes starting automatic without any application of the throttle. Interior: The interior is mainly a new version of the original stock 69 Z-28 interior but with some modern yet subtle upgrades. A Flaming River tilt steering column replaced the original and a custom wood and chrome steering wheel with Chevys crossed flag racing emblem has been added. The floor pans, firewall, and door panels were all stripped, painted, then lined with sound deadening Dynamat before new carpet and new door panels were attached. Black Lokar drilled billet door handles and window cranks add a modern touch. The original console was replaced with a new one. Autometer gauges replaced the old “idiot indicators and are set inside a 4-position carbon fiber gauge cluster. Billet sill plates by Ring Brothers replaced the originals and add a very impressive look to the interior. Billet door vents and billet strikers were also added. Wheels and Tires: A custom version of Boze Alloys “Fatal wheels measure 17X8 in front and 17X12 in the rear. New Michelin Pilot Sport II tires are 245X35 in front with huge 335X35s in back. Special Billet Touches: Billet hood hinges by Detroit Speed & Engineering hold the original cowl hood firmly in place and compliment the engine bay. Billet door handles by Ring Brothers add an impressive look to the doors. Billet marker light housings replace the original plastic housings and create a much cleaner look to the front and rear fenders. Billet taillight housings by Marquez Design replace the original plastic housings and completely transform the look of the car from behind. Billet hinges secure the trunk lid and sequential LED brake lights and turn signals add modern function and look to the car. The incredible amount of thought, custom work, and custom parts make this Camaro a beautiful one of a kind representation of what many have said is Chevrolets greatest body design of all time.
