It’s not often that you run across ProStreet cars that are as nice and gorgeous as this 1969 Camaro that’s in the Gateway Classic Cars’ Fleet. For $93,000, it can be yours.
This beautiful machine was once owned by Promod racer John Camp and is now back up forsale.
Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a bad to the bone 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. Painted in a great shade red with traditional black SS stripes, this is one Camaro you cannot miss. This is not your grandfather’s Camaro. This street terror has what every car guy wants: horsepower.
The power comes from a 588 cubic inch CNC 10.2 Bowtie Block. It has Dart heads with a solid roller camshaft and Jesal rocker arms. If the 588 cubic inches are not enough for you, how about topping it with a polished BDS 8-71 blower with an intercooler? Yeah, that will do it! But wait, there’s more. Making this crazy power plant user friendly is a 3 hole Big & Ugly electronic fuel injection with FAST setup. Ignition is supplied by a crank triggered MSD ignition and distributor.
The engine is also equipped with an electric water pump, vacuum pump and a custom radiator with dual fans. The intercooler is set up with a custom tank and a pump under the passenger fender well. This kind of a power plant requires a very stout transmission and rear end. Taking on this tough task is a Rosler Turbo 400 that’s been built to handle 1,500 horsepower. The rear is a FAB 9″ with Mark Williams axles and 5/8 studs. This kind of power won’t work well in a bone stock Camaro chassis or suspension and that too has been addressed. A 2×3 tube chassis that has a 7.50 certification does the job.
The suspension includes a strut front end and a Top Gun 4 link with adjustable coil overs. Slowing things down is an easy task for the slotted solid rotors with Strange calipers and a chute out back when you’re at the track. Sticky tires measuring 33×18.50-15 for the rears and 4.5/26.0-17 up front, both wrapped around Weld Racing Alumstar 2.0 wheels and both powder coated black.
Inside is a fire suppression system that includes the engine bay, interior and trunk.
The interior is all custom and features a set of custom red Hounds tooth seats, a factory dash with custom gauges, power windows, stereo and a tilt wheel. The car is beautifully built and there’s no question the builder had a focus on attention to detail. The car was built from the chassis up and will not disappoint. The car is licensed, insured and sees a good amount of street use. For more information on this one of a kind 1969 Camaro, call 618-271-3000 or stop by our St. Louis showroom.
