The X-factor with this Camaro is its trim code (X55). MotoeXotica Classic Cars presents this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible. Built during the second week of December 1968 in General Motors' Norwood, Ohio assembly plant, this is one of 34,932 Camaro SS models made in 1969.
The car is dressed in Rallye Green exterior (code 79) with white stripes and a white, power-folding vinyl top with a matching boot. The paint and trim and are in overall excellent condition. The bodywork is .....
straight. The engine bay is extremely tidy, the cargo area is tidy and the chrome bumpers fit tightly to the body.
This F-body rolls on Cooper Cobra Radial G/T tires, size 225/70R14 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted to a factory turbine-style alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order.
Under the counterbalanced hood is a 350 CID Turbo-Fire V-8 engine (code L48) with aluminum heads and Edelbrock RPM Air-Gap intake manifold with a one-inch phenolic high-riser; a dual-feed 670 CFM Holley Street Avenger four-barrel carburetor with an electric choke. There is a high-energy ignition system, a chrome fuel pump and a set of ceramic headers and a strong cam then the engine breathes via Flowmaster dual exhausts. It's dressed up with a nice set of polished finned valve covers and chrome pulleys, water pump, bracket and air cleaner. Backing this motor is a Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission with correct Hurst shifter and a multi-leaf, 12-bolt rear end with 3.31:1 gearing. Driver convenience features include a new, vintage air-conditioning system (converted to R134a and recently recharged), power recirculating ball steering and power disc/drum brakes. The X55 trim code is a base car with SS350 rear fender louvers and black body sill.
Inside is a beautifully contrasting Ivory (code 727) vinyl interior. The front, folding bucket seats are in great shape with contrasting black carpeting. A deluxe three-spoke steering wheel looks great, as do the white inner door panels and black dashboard. There is a factory tachometer, a black center console with woodgrain appliqué and four Autometer gauges look great and correct Hurst shifter. An Autosound AM/FM stereo fills the gap in place of the original AM radio.
The SS performance package consisted of a 350 CID or 396 CID V-8s and chassis upgrades for better handling and to deal with the additional power. The SS featured non-functional air inlets on the hood, special striping and SS badging.
The 1969 Camaro carried over the previous year's drivetrain and major mechanical components, but all-new sheet metal, except the hood trunk lid and roof, gave the car a substantially sportier look. The grille was redesigned with a heavy “V” slant and deeply inset headlights. New door skins, rear quarter panels and rear valance panel also gave the car a much lower, wider, more aggressive look. This styling would serve for the 1969 model year only.
Competition to this Camaro in 1969 included Ford's Mustang, Mercury's Cougar, Plymouth's Barracuda and Pontiac's Firebird.
