Hey there everybody! My name is Myles and I’m 20 years old, and I’ve been looking at this forum for a while and now I finally have a reason to join! Today I just bought my dream car. A 1969 camaro hardtop, factory 124 -V8 - 79-79 rallye green. Black standard interior. It’s an SS clone...
I have a 69 Camaro with a 350, TCI TH350 and 10 bolt rear (don’t know the ratio). I can only go up to 70 mph on the freeway and it seems like it’s lugging. Is my rear ratio too low (4:56)? Tires are 246/60/15 in the rear.
Thanks for the add. Ive owned my 69 Camaro since 2001. In 2021, finally got some work on it in Oakland, CA at Pair-A-Dice Customs. They did a great job. They had her for only 7 weeks. Got paint done, full RideTech coilover suspension, front disc brakes and light body work.
Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and am currently doing a refresh on a 25+ year old restoration.
I had been after this car for several years A good friends dad owned it. The car was bought already by his father “complete” and stuck in the corner of his collection for about...
I'm terminating my steam vent in my radiator, which is an LS Swap radiator from BeCool. I'm sensing temp from the GMPP harness, and there are two ports on the radiator which I can use for my Steam vent. One, just below the upper supply hose (passenger side) is meant for the temperature sender...
I'm the proud owner of a 69 Camaro for over 35 years. Now in the final phase of a complete resto-mod project. I hope to find answers to some of the questions/dilemmas encountered and help answer questions others may have.
I’ve been lurking for a while and high time I introduced myself. I am in the Oklahoma City Area – and have my 69 Camaro coupe since 1983. When I bought it, it had a 6cyl, 3spd standard tranny and 10 bolt/monoleaf. Those are long gone and replaced with a 454, Tunnel ram, 4spd...
Because different shops charge different rates, I'm hoping if I detail the body and paint work that has been performed on my 69 Camaro, I'll get some professional shop owners and experienced DIY'ers to respond. I'm looking for a reasonable number of hours that it would take an experienced shop...
I am wondering how I can obtain a replacement build sheet for a 69 Camaro SS - Van Nuys plant. I'm needing some advice on what I have (in order to accurately sell it) - the present engine is a 1965 327, the original tach indicates 6000 rpm. Is there an equivalent to the Marti...
Does anyone have a suggestion for how to repair/replace the plastic piece which holds the odometer tangs in place? I was cleaning one with a brush, and broke the old plastic.. so now one of the digits is 'freewheeling'. Can these be purchased anywhere? If not, any suggestions for 'making one'?
It's pricey, but thinking about using one of the McLeod Hydraulic Clutch Conversion kits on my 69 Big Block Camaro... Anyone have any experience with the installation?
1434002 - Master Cylinder Firewall Kit - $329.95
1301 - Bearing/Slave Cylinder Assembly - $446.00
Just installed a 502 Ram Jet into my 69 Camaro..next up..changing the transmission.
Tremec TKO vs T56 - which one is better given my engine and why?
Thanks in advance!
And if you know where to find either of these transmissions at a good price, don't hesitate to tell me! :beers:
Quoted from a recent Appraisal Report - "this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 represents a phenomenal example of this true American muscle car. As noted in the Vehicle Option pages, and as depicted on the many enclosed digital photographs, this '69 Z29 has been professionally restored back to perfect
So here is my story.
In 1985 my grandmother whom I had not heard from in years called me to tell me she had bought a car for me. The only stipulation was that I had to sell the motorcycle that she had "heard" I owned because she was sure I would get killed on it.
Since it was December and...
I have a 69 Camaro RS/SS with console gauges and the temp gauge is not working properly. I have tried to find the solution on this site but not sure I've seen it so hope this is not a repeat...
I thought the gauge was bad so I bought a new OER gauge from NPD and hooked it up. I have a new...
Hi, I'm putting a big block in a 69 camaro. It was originally a small block car. It appears there is an import and US version of the bellcrank kit from Rick's 1st gen. Any opinions on whether the US is worth twice the money? What is the difference between the big block and small block bellcranks?
