1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 Street Machine – Make an Offer
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 Update – The high bid of $20,000 was not enough to meet the reserve on this ’69 Camaro Street machine, so we’re moving the car over to our “Rides Still Available” page where you can make reasonable offers.
Friday, June 4, 2021 Update – To ensure we make the maximum number of potential bidders aware of this ’69 Camaro auction, we’re extending the deadline from Friday, June 4th to Tuesday, June 8 at 6:45 pm. The auction will not be extended beyond this revised time.
GuysWithRides.com is excited to offer this driver-quality 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS396 Street Machine for our latest reserve auction lot. Bidding opens Friday, May 21, 2021, at 5:00 pm Eastern Time and continues for 14 days through Friday, June 4, 2021, at 7:00 pm. This Camaro is currently located approximately one hour from Boston’s Logan International Airport.
IMPORTANT: If the documented minor rust spots in the pictures leave you to pause for concern, please pay close attention to the video below between 4:00 and 5:00 as Rudy goes through the lower panels to illustrate just how solid they are.
To manage expectations, if you’re looking for a numbers-matching ’69 Camaro SS396, keep searching. The cowl tag confirms this Norwood, Ohio (Cincinnati) Camaro started life as a Garnet Red V8-powered example with a medium red standard interior. The “X11” Exterior trim code and the lack of a black rear panel also indicate this Camaro left Norwood as an SS350. However, if you’re looking for a solid ’69 Camaro already equipped with a well-built powertrain that you can enjoy now while you plan to paint over next winter, this may be the candidate for you. Specifically, perched underneath the steel cowl induction hood of this Camaro is a built and dyno’d 454 cubic inch V8 Engine relying on Hooker Super Comp Headers and dual exhaust to remove gases effectively. Included in the picture carousel is the engine’s rear-wheel dyno results from April 2019 along with the receipt totaling $10,000 for the engine build.
Transferring the big block’s power is a rebuilt Muncie “Rock Crusher” 4-speed manual transmission sending the torque to a 4:11 positraction rear end. Factory Steel Ram-Air Hood. Red Interior in excellent condition. To help ensure all the power gets transferred properly through the rear tires, this Camaro now features welded-in sub-frame connectors and traction bars.
Savvy Camaro tuners reading this might be quick to point out the Hooker Headers does not provide the engine compartment room needed to install a factory hydraulic power steering system. To circumvent that, this Camaro features an EPAS Performance Electric Power Steering Kit. Receipts proving the install are including in the pictures.
The red interior features a recently installed new carpet (receipt also provided). The quality rebuilt power train and excellent interior offset the fact this Camaro will need a new paint job. We’ve documented all of the minor surface rust and defects. Please check back over the weekend when we will post a video proving how structurally sound this Camaro is.
