1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Walk Around and Driving Video
To compete with the venerable pony car, Chevrolet updated the design of the two-year-old Camaro for 1969, despite an entirely new generation set to debut in 1970. New squared-off wheel arches, a ‘V’-shaped grille, vented rear quarter panels, and a sleek rear valance panel all made for an overall more aggressive appearance. Most of the major mechanical underpinnings carried over from the previous year, with the exception of the 396 cu-in V8 made available in the SS and Z28. However, there was an even larger, monstrously-powerful 427 cu-in V8 that was never offered as a factory option as GM forbade displacement larger than 400 cu-in in their small and mid-size vehicles. A limited number of these 427 cu-in V8s were special ordered by dealers, installed, and sold in period, while others earned drag strip glory with retrofitted 427s. Among marque enthusiasts, the 1969 Camaro is considered to be the ultimate blend of muscle and good looks, especially when equipped with the prized, 425-horsepower 427 cu-in V8 such as this example.
This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
