This Corvette Z06 Powered ’69 Chevrolet Camaro is the Best of Both Worlds

There has never been a better time to buy a classic American muscle car with modern performance parts thanks to the growth of restomods. The 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is a perfect example of what money can buy.

The Camaro specifically hit the auction yard during the Mecum’s Indy sales event that ran from May 13-21 but as of May 23, bidding on the car was ongoing. While we don’t yet know how much the car will sell for, it appears to have attracted a lot of interest and is a perfect blend of the classic and modern worlds.

Limited details are given about the car’s transformation from a regular 1969 Camaro to a specialty one like this, but we can see extensive work done on the exterior, including a full rebreather in a Gunmetal Gray shade. Several new body panels were also installed, including a new hood with a large power bulge and a reformed tailgate with a pronounced rear spoiler. A set of 18″ front wheels and 20″ rear wheels are eye-catching.

Then there is the powertrain. The original Camaro is gone and replaced by the 7.0-liter V8 from the 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The 7.0-liter V8 normally generates 505 horsepower and 470 pound-feet (637 Nm) of torque, but thanks to an Edelbrock supercharger, it now generates 650 horsepower. . The V8 is paired with a six-speed manual transmission from Tremec that drives the rear wheels.

Other modifications made to the Camaro include a Pro G subframe, a set of reinforced Wilwood brakes on all four corners, and a coilover suspension. The listing also reveals that the vehicle has rack-and-pinion steering and is equipped with a custom 3-inch stainless steel exhaust with stainless steel long tube heads.
