First-Gen 1969 Chevy Camaro Up For Grabs: Video7
The 1969 Chevy Camaro is one of the most popular Bow Tie products out there, offering iconic style and plenty of performance when properly equipped. Now this particular example is up for sale in Tennessee.
Posted online by Maple Motors in Hendersonville, this 1969 Chevy Camaro brings the goods expected, but could still use a little love.
Outside, this two-door hardtop is draped in bright Hugger Orange paint complemented by twin white racing stripes running down the spine, a classic look for a classic ride. The corners are occupied by a set of 15-inch Rally wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich tires, while in back, we find a dual exhaust treatment. Chrome trim bits round it out.
While the combo looks good, the closer we get to it, the more imperfections we find. For example, the windshield is a bit hazy and scratched, and there are some scratches, pitting, and cracks in the paint as well.
Inside, it’s the same story. The seat upholstery looks good front to back, as does the headliner and dash pad. However, the horn is non-functional and the steering wheel is crooked. There’s also some green carpet, which clashes with the rest of the color scheme.
Other issues include non-functioning HVAC, while a set of aftermarket gauges and tach look to be haphazardly installed. Finally, the sellers mention problems with the driver’s door handle and the locks.
Mechanically speaking, all is well. This 1969 Chevy Camaro is running a 350 V8 engine that drives the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission, and per the test drive, it all runs nice and cool. A set of drum brakes at all four corners are used to slow it down, but unfortunately, the wheel pulls to the left under heavy braking.
All told, this 1969 Chevy Camaro looks nice from a distance, but a few bits and pieces need repair. This is definitely for a buyer willing to take on a project. The issues are relatively minor though, and with a little elbow grease, this thing will be sitting pretty.
Pricing is set at $29,900. Check out test drive video below:

? One should take a close look is it a true v8 or is it 6 powerguilde made up as a v8 car? the dealer has YouTube test drives on all there cars
Over priced by 10,000 . . . If you plan to keep this for a number of years it will need a major frame-off restore. I suspect there is major body filler everywhere on that body and this was covered in a quick 2 part spray, which is not consistent with that era. Just listen to the closing of the trunk and the driver’s door, that sound tells you a lot. I love that year and the car has buckets of potential, however be prepared to invest heavily to get it back up to an acceptable condition to enjoy for many more years. Cheers.
acceptable is pretty subjective. looks like a basic driveline car from that era. no power steering or brakes, but a 350 and a 4 speed. my stock 68 was a 275 327 with the same setup. sadly just a 10 bolt and the drums are only so good, but for the lowest price back then you got a V8 and rowed 4 gears yourself, which was a big deal when people could drive sticks. As it is i the thing looks like it could be a good 20/20 driver that you could not worry so much about parking at the grocery store if need be. The price reflects the current market more than it actually being over priced. Rollers with no drive train are going for 10-15k these days if they have a title.
Agreed, standard v8 Camaro. Should go for 10k less as stated.
Away over priced and alot of work
Looks like it sold
