1969_chevy_camaro_1.jpg

Built by Ringbrothers and designed by Sean Smith, this custom 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe can be yours if you’re heading to Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale, Arizona auction.

One of the nicest ’69 Camaros we’ve seen in a long time, the exterior Mineral Gray/Pewter finish looks immaculate in the photos. The Hunter Green interior is unique while the Camaro packs a 454-cubic inch Ram Jet ZL1 under the hood, numbered 193 of 200. The engine is combined with a six-speed Viper transmission.

On the outside, custom one-off Budnik wheels in a staggered setup adorn each corner. Stopping power has been enhanced with 15-inch rotors and Baer’s six-piston calipers. The interior is race-inspired with a Tilton pedal setup, MOMO steering wheel and custom Classic Instruments. Lightening the body is a carbon fiber hood, trunk, deck lid, bumper and brake ducts.

When you think of classic Chevy Camaro Pace Cars, the 1969 Z11 Indy Replica is probably the example that most often comes to mind. It’s a striking piece, finished in white with contrasting Hugger Orange stripes but perhaps the car pictured above is more interesting.

For starters, it’s an actual Pace Car from a race in 1969; secondly, that race happens to be the US Grand Prix at Watkins Glen, New York, as in the Formula One event, won that year by Austrian driver Jochen Rindt. This particular car is finished, like the Indy Pacers in Dover White, but looks a bit more subdued thanks to the black interior, subtle hockey-stick side stripes, door decals and tail panel.

It’s also equipped with some desirable options, namely an L78 396 cubic inch big-block V-8 with solid lifter rectangular port heads, TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, 12-bolt rear end with 3.55 gears and Positraction limited slip differential, power brakes, auxiliary gauges and a Rosewood steering wheel.

Currently being offered for sale through RK Motors of Charlotte, North Carolina (some of whose stock we’ve covered before), this Camaro has been fully restored and claimed to be in better than new condition, both outside and in. It also comes, perhaps not surprisingly with a wad of documentation.
