This 1969 Camaro is highly modifed all the way around. A subframe from a 2nd Generation Camaro has been swapped in for improved suspension geometry, braking, and better exhaust to steering box clearance. The floor has been reinforced, and the car effectively has a full frame, making it much stronger than the typical convertible body. The rearend is a 9" Ford with Wilwood NASCAR-style disc brakes. The car has a roll bar, and a circle track style fuel cell. The previous owner was planning to race this car in vintage racing classes. It is set up for a manual transmission. There is no engine or transmission included. The vehicle has power 4 wheel disc brakes and power steering, and comes with 16" Chevy rally wheels with flat center caps. A Griffin aluminum radiator (removed when the engine was pulled) is also included.
The car overall is solid, with no rust. This car started out as a coupe, and was made into a convertible using mostly original GM convertible parts. All inner structure for the folding top, the windshield frame and pillars, and all other necessary bracing from the convertible donor was added to this car to create a convertible. A top frame is included, but it does need repair or replacement (rust). Everything fits well, and the car is functionaly the same as any factory-built convertible.
Car is being sold on a "best offer" basis. The car does not have a title (not required in GA), but a bill of sale will be provided. Mileage is unknown.The car is located in Acworth, GA, and is available for inspection during regular business hours Monday-Friday 9am-6pm, or by appointment.
We recently drove the brand-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and found it to be vastly improved compared to the outgoing model. And now that The General's pickup trucks have been squared away, it's time to focus our attention onto their passenger-friendly companions, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon (above).
Our spy photographers have passed along a huge smattering of photos (and a video), showing the new SUVs out testing. Both the short- and long-wheelbase models were spied, and while the overall shape of the vehicles hasn't changed all that much, we expect the updates to be substantial. In addition to new powertrain options, like GM's new small-block V8, we expect the interiors of both SUVs to get massive makeovers, providing better materials throughout their cabins and quieter, more refined environments. We even hear that some trick new suspension developments may be in store for upper-end models.
Visually, these spy shots allow us to see a couple of new details on the SUVs' front and rear fascias, including LED running lamps on the Yukon and some interesting LED taillamp treatments. Of course, the obvious third party missing from this set of photos is the Cadillac Escalade, but as we reported earlier, GM is working to further differentiate the 'Slade from the rest of the fullsize SUV lineup, and is working to make the new model "much less ostentatious."
We've already seen leaked specs and potential spy shots, but the refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show in a few weeks.
Besides a tweaked exterior and the possibility of a high-output LS7 under the hood, we really don't know much else about the 2014 Camaro, but here's hoping for an improved interior, too.
In addition to the refreshed Camaro, Chevrolet will also be showing off the recently introduced Chevrolet SS, making its debut on the auto show circuit, and we'll also get our first look at the C7 Corvette coupe and convertible side-by-side.
We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.
In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.
