If you’re looking for a car with retro looks and modern technology that is in showroom-new condition, you might want to take a gander at the 1969 Camaro SS pro-tourer recently put up for sale on eBay by RKM Performance Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.
RKM says this sinister-looking Camaro was born from vintage appeal and broad aftermarket support. The car, which has received a full, frame-off restoration, had its body panels restored to better-than-new condition and painted in a custom-blended Charcoal Steel paint finish. Out front, a new satin black grille houses Marquez headlamps which sit above a traditional D80 chin spoiler. Other small exterior modifications include a two-tone cowl-induction hood, sculpted fenders, Ring Brothers door handles, Detroit Speed windshield wipers, body-color matched drip rails, a small decklid spoiler, a color-keyed Chevrolet bowtie and fresh stainless steel exhaust tips.
Under the hood sits a 7.0-liter LS7 engine producing 513 horsepower at the rear wheels. The engine has been garnished with Kooks long-tube headers, a Be Cool radiator, Spal puller fans and new AC Delco plug wires. It sits in a satin black engine bay and is dressed up with a clean radiator shroud and carbon-fiber fuel rail covers. It is mated to a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission.
The underside of the Camaro combines new age technology with old school durability. The suspension has been completely worked over using Detroit Speed components with a beefy Panhard suspension link and Koni coil-over shocks. A Baer brake system with a Detroit Speed brake booster and 14-inch drilled rotors help slow things down, while a modern power steering system ensures the car turns as well as it accelerates. Helping put the power to the ground are a set of Rushforth Night Train wheels wrapped in Nitto NTO5 tires measuring 245mm in the front and 335mm in the rear.
Inside, occupants will find a fully redone black leather interior complete with a modern-day Sony head unit, a custom center console loosely based on GM’s factory-correct piece, a Hurst shifter, a flat bottom Billet Specialities steering wheel, a suede headliner and color coordinated floor mats among other small features.
With these extensive modifications, this ’69 Camaro has been brought into the 21st century. Check out RKM’s listing for the car, complete with loads more pictures of the gorgeous F-Body, on eBay here. You might be left dreaming though, as it’s currently carrying a buy it now price of $199,900.
