1969 Chevrolet Camaro is considered by many to be the epitome of classic American muscle. It influenced design cues for the fifth-gen Camaro because Chevrolet wanted to redo what it had once done so well, add those looks to the power of a supercharged LS6 and the agility of a Corvette Z06 and you’ve got yourself some “Bad Company.”
What are we talking about, you ask? Bad Company is the ’69 Camaro build done by Weaver Customs featuring a Magnuson supercharger atop an LS6 for 650 horsepower matted a T56 transmission, and Z06-grade suspension. According to the description of the build, there’s over $400,000 in this build, which has an asking price of “only” $135,000. Other goodies include large Wilwood brakes and Forgeline RB3C wheels.
Bad Company originally debuted as a feature car for the 2014 Detroit Autorama, winning Best Radical Custom Convertible along with other awards at the Toronto Motorama and various Good Guy events. The car was also invited to be an exhibit car for the Hot Rod Power Tour, and a premier feature car for the International Ultimate Air Affair.
Here’s the seller’s description of the roadster:
“Bad Company, along with its attention to detail from Weaver Customs, exudes elegance and cutting-edge automotive styling with its splitter-style front pan, completely restyled rear end, innovative custom tonneau and extremely racked windshield, Ram Air quarter ducts and hand-fabricated steel console accents. The interior is luxurious Italian leather all trimmed by JS Custom Interiors. Filled with the latest Kicker audio components and a heads-up display.”
We’re not sure if we’re buying into the appeal to elegance, but we’ll say this Camaro is certainly different and is more than likely a grand old time when you’re behind the wheel. That said, we would probably spend our money on a nice Zl1, and pocket the extra $60,000 or so for a future purchase. Tell us what your thoughts are in the comment section below.
