Built due to intense public demand with virtually no possible cost spared to a Chip Foose design, this stunning Pro Touring-style ‘69 Camaro was built by Unique Performance in Farmers Branch, Texas as part of a limited run completed during the mid-2000s. Combining the best first-generation Camaro styling cues, subtle yet effective custom tweaks, and race-bred performance, handling, and braking, this amazing Foose-designed ride is a study in modern engineering and performance technology with an updated take on the iconic original.
From its wicked stance to the scooped custom hood and arresting two-tone paint finish, this car is nothing less than a true piece of rolling artwork. Custom body updates include smoothed and painted body-color bumpers, slender Jaguar door handles, and outstanding glass, trim, and bright work. A finely detailed custom grille insert and factory Rally Sport-style headlamp covers echo the original items with a fresh and modern Foose Design twist. The door handles have been replaced with slim Jaguar handles. All of the trim, bright work, and glass are new and in perfect condition. Featuring better-than-factory panel fit and preparation, the Camaro was finished in stunning Hugger Orange – an original Camaro paint color for ‘69 – with a bold and wide dark gray stripe down the middle, perfectly accented by black and blue pin striping and carried over into the engine compartment. The gray rear panel ties it all together. PIAA driving lights and back-up units provide excellent candlepower while cruising or carving corners at night.
Underhood, everything is painted, coated, or polished, with all electrical wiring and AC lines carefully hidden to enhance the clean look. Performance is simply awesome with the 572 cubic-inch V-8 pounding out 620 horsepower with fuel delivery by a Hogan EFI intake, high-flow electric fuel pump, and 16-gallon fuel cell. Other excellent supporting items include a serpentine belt-drive system with polished Concept One pulleys, full MSD electronic ignition, coated headers, and a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system routed through Spin Tech aluminum mufflers. Cooling for even the hottest weather is provided by a Griffin aluminum radiator with 16-inch SPAL electric cooling fans. The air conditioning lines are all lines are routed through the passenger side inner fender. The power steering reservoir is from Concept One and the water pump is a high-flow polished unit. A Tilton clutch and Tremec TKO five-speed transmission send the Camaro’s massive power and torque to a Currie 9-inch Tru-Track rear end housing 31-spline axles and 3.25:1 gears.
The Camaro’s chassis and underpinnings are equally impressive, including a Chris Alston Chassisworks front-suspension system, a rear coil-over setup from Unique Performance Products, and subframe braces. Stopping power is provided by a set of Baer brakes at all four corners with the Baer track system up front and that company’s touring system at the rear. Rolling stock includes a set of Foose-designed 18-inch wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich G-Force 245/40ZR18 tires up front and 295/35Z18s out back for outstanding grip. The interior compartment features a set of Foose-designed racing seat with harness pass-through slots, a four-point roll bar, and the G-Force five point quick release harnesses. AutoMeter Signature-Series instruments monitor vital functions and a LeCarra leather-wrapped wheel looks great and provides driving comfort. Passenger comfort is assured with Old Air air conditioning and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/DVD unit housed within a custom console provides additional entertainment while a security system protects the car. Designed by living legend Chip Foose and built to impeccable standards using only the finest parts and craftsmanship, this exceptional ‘69 Camaro is offered ready to show, go, and collect!
