Smile 69 X66 for her

the time has come to start building the rally green X66 for my wife. She has been wanting a 69 camaro for some time now.
It has a jb code 69 block, 67 camaro 12 bolt, and will get a 4L80e trans.

I have verified this is a real X66. I can supply vin for the archives if requested.

This car will be built to the wifes specs.









and the boss....

Looking for 68 Camaro with body number NOR 181016

Good luck with the project. Like you I'm building a 69 x66 for my wife also. It's awesome to have wives who are car nuts also.

interior will be completey stock

engine will get aluminum heads and intake.
trans will most likely be a 4l80e.

and will also be getting a vinyl top.

Re: 69 X66 for her

got to mess with the car some today. i was incorrect in saying it has a 67 rear. after getting the car on stands i was able to get info. it is in fact a 69 "bu" rear.

Re: 69 X66 for her

I can help get you in the ballpark with cam selection
CSTRAUB here designs and grinds cams
WOLFPLACE on Team Chevelle is a WD on a lot of the engine parts that you might need, especially heads. He can usually save you a buck or two

Re: 69 X66 for her

4l80E is a huge very heavy transmission. Maybe not the best choice... Unless you have a trans expert helping you with trans choices, I'd be doing some research. Self and several others brought up 4L80E to our local guru, he is no fan of these.

I'll be shooting my 68 Ragtop in a few weeks with Rallye Green. Stay tuned!

Re: 69 X66 for her

i am not a fan of the 700R4 so that's why i was leaning towards the 4L80e. i will go with jakes transmission when I'm ready.
thanks for the heads up on the engine parts.

pulled the cover off the diff. tonight. has a Richmond 3.73 ring and pinion.

Re: 69 X66 for her

you are all set then for an OD
For my car...was gonna go mild 396, had Will Strange build me a beefed 2004R. I then had a change of heart, mpg and handling brought me back to the original 327 (with upgrades) .

2004R has a 2.74 1st gear so with 3.73, the launch would be like a th350 with 4.10s
in OD, will be like 2.50 gearing.
