The 1969 Chevy Camaro – A V8 supercharged harmony
A 1969 Chevy Camaro pro touring build was finished almost seven years ago. It features a supercharged LSA V8 crate motor and 580 pound-feet of torque at the rear tires. Interior features Recaro seats, Sparco steering wheel, and Art Morrison C6 Corvette whee
When a construction has been finished with care and attention to detail, everything fits together harmoniously, from the larger elements, such as the paint and wheels, to the minor ones, such as the trim and gauge bezel. As is the case with the 1969 Chevy Camaro pro touring build that is depicted in the accompanying video, the final product of this kind of construction process is almost always amazing. This feature video clip, which is once more brought to us by Autotopia-LA, provides us a walkaround and a few insights before taking to the road for some driving impressions. Despite the fact that the build was finished almost seven years ago, this 1969 Chevy Camaro still appears flawless.
The Chevy Camaro’s exterior is painted matte gray, giving it a straightforward, refined appearance with end-to-end matching parts. Shaved door handles with pocketed style access, a carbon fiber front lip, and a matching rear diffuser piece are just a few of the details. The rollers are split-spoke alloy wheels that were taken from a Chevy Corvette. They are 19 inches wide up front and 19 inches wide at the back. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, measuring 275/30R19 up front and 335/30R19 back, are used to cover the wheels. It should come as no surprise that the interior is as well-done, with gray and black upholstery throughout.
With a full stereo system onboard, including a pair of 12-inch subwoofers in the trunk, the driver sits in Recaro seats and holds a Sparco steering wheel while reading Autometer gauges.
A full chromoly roll cage is also there, which helps keep the chassis nice and firm so that the improved suspension has the best chance to function as intended. A supercharged LSA V8 crate motor, producing 525 horsepower and 580 pound-feet of torque at the rear tires, propels the vehicle forward. The V8 engine in this Chevy Camaro is fueled by an Aeromotive fuel system, and it exhales through a 3-inch dual exhaust. The output is routed through a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and a 12-bolt rear axle.
In order to keep everything looking good, the Camaro was also fitted with manual Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, a Detroit Speed QuadraLink rear suspension, and Art Morrison C6 Corvette front suspension components.
