Power and Precision in the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe with a 396 V8 Engine

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro coupe was refurbished and modified during previous ownership with the installation of a 396ci V8 and a Turbo-Hydramatic three-speed automatic transmission, a suspension overhaul, and a repaint in Viper Bright Yellow with black stripes. The car is equipped with a 3.73:1 Positraction differential, black vinyl upholstery, Hotchkis springs, subframe connectors, power-assisted steering and front disc brakes, front and rear spoilers, and chrome 17” wheels as well as an Edelbrock intake manifold, a COMP Cams camshaft, an Accel HEI distributor, and a dual exhaust system with Pypes mufflers. This Camaro was purchased by the seller in 2018 and is now offered with photos and receipts from the build and a clean Minnesota title in the seller’s name.
