If you clicked this ad, we don’t need to sell you on the virtues of the first-generation Camaro. You already know it’s an attractive, comfortable, quick and all-around cool classic. In fact, it was even voted the Best Chevy of All Time during Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary celebration. That said; falling for a killer F1 is easy. The difficult part is finding a unique, well-restored car that’ll keep you happy for years to come. Luckily, your friends at RK Motors Charlotte have a real knack for finding standout builds. And this award-winning Camaro, wrapping a 511 cubic inch big block in top-notch customization and Satin Pearl pigment, is about as standout as it gets. So, if the panther bug has bitten you, take a closer look at this killer bowtie!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Steal a glance at this Chevy’s super slick body and you’ll see what high quality craftsmanship truly looks like. The product of a ground-up restoration that was performed by the dedicated enthusiasts at Legacy Innovations its solid sheetmetal was completely stripped, carefully sanded and thoroughly worked into a top-notch pro-street cruiser. Once that intense labor resulted in better than factory fit, a smooth coat of Satin Pearl was dressed in custom war paint, accented with subtle pinstripes and sealed in satin clear. And the result is one razor-sharp pony car that looks good, runs great and easily turns heads!

There’s no question that the ’69 Camaro is one of the best-looking muscle cars of all time. And when a team of skilled builders executes a bit of carefully planned customization, it only serves to make things better! At the front of this slick coupe, a shaved grille hangs trick Delta headlights above LED parking lamps, a carbon fiber chin spoiler and a sanded, tucked and smoothed bumper. Above that grille, an extended ZL2 hood floats between a shaved header, a shaved cowl and flush-fit glass. At the sides of that glass, F2 mirrors, color-keyed Ringbrothers door handles and custom, color-keyed quarter gills add acute detail to the car’s shaved profile. And at the back of that profile, a hand-made spoiler frames LED taillights, a carbon fiber valance, and a second sanded, tucked and smoothed bumper.

ENGINE

Lift the 4-inch fiberglass hood and you’ll find 511 cubic inches of Chevrolet V8 that’s surprisingly streetable. Torching high-octane racing fuel into tough 10 to 1 compression, that chest-thumping big block is a bored and stroked brainchild of Dallastown, Pennsylvania’s Warrior Engines. The mill’s growl originates when wind whips from a custom “511” branded air tube in to a massive Quick Fuel Technology carburetor that’s cinched to braided fluid lines and a small JEGS pressure gauge. The resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from a Weiand Team G intake to iron Merlin heads, which hide high quality roller rockers under painted valve covers and satin Moroso breathers. When the juice hits those heads, MSD 6AL ignition sends fire through an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and premium Taylor plug wires while big cylinders combust via H-beam connecting rods, an Eagle 4340 crank and a Comp hydraulic roller cam. Cooling for that fire comes courtesy of a beefy aluminum radiator that’s strung between a custom water tube, SPAL puller fans and a Satin Pearl support cowl. Fluid for that cooling is provided by a Meziere water pump, which hangs beside a polished alternator that’s bolted between a Powermaster bracket and color-keyed pulley. Spent gases exit through a subdued pair of Hooker Super Competition headers. The buff mill is exceptionally impressive, centering its glossy block between custom fenders, a smooth firewall and a fully finished hood. And details like ARP bolts, ARP studs, hydraulic hood supports and a Wilwood master cylinder are well planned and well executed.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Take a gander under this slick F-Body and you’ll find a fully detailed chassis that mixes enhanced technology with proven durability. Behind the rowdy engine, a 3,200 RPM stall converter torques a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed. That 3-speed twists a spooled Ford 9-inch that’s built around 4.88 gears and Moser 35-spline axles. That pumpkin rides on a ladder bar suspension that’s fitted with adjustable QA-1 coil-overs. Opposite those coil-overs, a Heidts front clip makes good use of Flaming River power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of that chassis, proven Wilwood calipers clamp vented rotors. Exhaust floats through custom, 4-inch pipes, which employ aggressive, single-chamber mufflers. Power meets the pavement via color-keyed Schott wheels, which twist 26×10.00R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs in front of 31×18.00R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs. And the car’s solid, Satin Black floors are finished with stainless fluid lines, a deep-sump oil pan, a Stef’s transmission pan and requisite subframe connectors.

INTERIOR

Open this Chevy’s tight-fitting doors and you’ll find a custom leather interior that was stretched by Stitch & Stereo of York, Pennsylvania. The car’s firm seats, a slender pair of high-back buckets, have been threaded with 3-point RCi safety harnesses. In front of those mitts, a “Camaro” branded dash hangs Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite telemetry behind a stitched pad and aftermarket instrument panel. At the base of that dash, a custom consolette centers a B&M ratchet shifter in front of switches for the car’s power windows. Beneath that console, tight California Carpet anchors color-keyed floor mats between monochromatic sills and stainless-trimmed foot pedals. At the edges of that carpet, custom door panels hang polished handles beneath sculpted armrests and arched trim spears. In front of the driver, a polished and half-wrapped Billet Specialties steering wheel laps a tilting column. Behind the passengers, a thick roll bar keeps a small fire extinguisher on point. And behind the cockpit, a fully finished trunk frames a tidy fuel cell.
