The V8 Speed & Resto Shop team is honored to have two 1969 Camaros on display at the amazing “Summer Of ’69” 1969 Camaro display at the 2019 Goodguys Rod & Custom Association PPG Nationals in Columbus, Ohio! The event is hosting some of the most iconic and significant 1969 Chevrolet Camaros ever, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the always-popular ’69 Camaro. The V8-built supercharged LSA powered “Lou’s Change” pro-touring Camaro and the COMP Cams 454 LSX Camaro convertible will both be on hand, and we couldn’t be more excited for the owners and our team as well. It’s a tremendous honor to be included in such an amazing display, and even more-so to have the opportunity to these build awesome cars for great customers. We invite you to come see them in person at this must-see event!

1969 Chevrolet Camaro Sheetmetal, Bodywork, and Paint Photo Gallery

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop to have the body panels properly installed, then go through the bodywork and paint departments ultimately receiving a new paint job.   The color is a custom mix Axalta paint we named “Midnight Magic”, and looks awfully close to black, but actually has a purple hue with flake.    It turned out sharp!  The customer will be completing the assembly of the car.

1969 Camaro "Carbon Flash" Restoration At V8 Speed & Resto Shop
1969 Camaro “Carbon Flash” Restoration in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop
 
Sometimes it’s advantageous to take over a project than to start from scratch.   In this case, the customer wanted a cool ‘69 Camaro, and we happened to find him one that was already undergoing a restoration.   The owner of this clean Arizona car changed his mind and decided to sell his project, so we had the car shipped to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, IL, where it will now become the Pro-Touring Camaro the new owner has always wanted.     Features include a Holley Terminator EFI system, Vintage Air A/C, Scat seats, restoration parts from Classic Industries, Axalta paint, ARP engine hardware, COMP cam, and much more.   
 
Once the car arrived in our shop, we took inventory of all the parts that came with the car and gave it an initial once-over. 
 
It is a very clean car that had just received a silver paint job.   Our customer wants a different color, but at least this one does not require extensive bodywork.

1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZR9 800 HP Pro-Touring Camaro Build Photo Gallery

 

We build lots of Camaros in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, and each is different and unique.   
 
This is an interesting car for many reasons, beyond the 800+ HP Mast Motorsports supercharged engine. We’re using a new Dynacorn body on this one that we bought from Classic Industries, so the entire car will be new. The owner had no real attachment to a particular car, he just wanted a Camaro.    The car features the best of everything… Detroit Speed suspension, Baer brakes, Forgeline wheels, Toyo tires, Hydratech brake booster,  MagnaFlow exhaust, and much more.
