For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a unique 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. This 69 Camaro convertible is believed to be an actual RS/SS trim package, as it had all the correct parts and badging before the recently completed nut and bold restoration took place. The restorer decided to restore the car the way he would have ordered one in 1969. As you will soon learn, this one is loaded with the best of the best from 1969. To start things off, it is powered by an L-89 396. The L-89 is an aluminum head option for the L-78 396. The L-78 is the solid lifter 396 big block and the only way to make it better from the factory was to add the very rare L-89 option. This would drop roughly 75 pounds off the front end and aid in cooler operating temperatures. This engine was under rated from GM with an advertised 375 horsepower. Many sources claim true power to be well into the 400 range. Couple this power plant to a close ratio Muncie 4 speed with a 12 bolt rear end housing posi traction 3.31 gears and you've got a potent package. The 3.31:1 gears will allow for some fun around town but also allow easy cruising on the highway. Options are plentiful to say the least. Some of the more common options are here and include Power brakes, Power steering and a Power top. Some of less common options include Power windows, Tilt steering column, Rosewood steering wheel, a fold down rear seat, JL8 Four wheel disc brakes, under hood and trunk auxiliary lighting, front and rear bumper guards and spoilers, Chambered exhaust and a very rare yellow hounds tooth interior. What color would be best for a yellow hounds tooth, Daytona Yellow! What a nice combination with a black power top and SS wheels with new rubber. Other notable features are the late model IROC close ratio steering gear, Hotchkis suspension with adjustable shocks, Rally Sport and Super Sport packages and a modern AM/FM stereo system. There's no question about the man hours or dollars put into this work of art. Almost all the sheet metal except for the firewall is new. Countless hours have been spent on bodywork and wet sanding for such a great result. The underside looks just as great as the topside and with 800 miles on the rotisserie nut and bolt restoration, it's broken in but still very fresh and certainly ready for enjoyment.

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. This is without question one absolutely gorgeous '69 Camaro! There isn't much that wasn't customized, and it shows. It’s easy to throw a ton of aftermarket parts on a car. This took some serious time and attention to detail. Let’s start with the obvious first. Painted in a beautiful shade of red with white stripes or a gorgeous white leather interior and riding on a set of custom Billet Specialties aluminum wheels. This isn't just a nice paint job though. The front bumper is a narrowed and reshaped 1969 Camaro bumper mounted with custom brackets. The lower valance has a lower grill opening with a stainless steel grill, the upper grill opening has been smoothed and features driving lights/ turn signals from a ’69 Camaro. The lower air dam and fender extensions are a one off from molded fiberglass. The upper grill opening is smoothed and recessed to accommodate quad headlights from a 1970 Oldsmobile and a hand fabricated stainless grill with a relocated hood release. The hood features a steel cowl induction that was welded from underneath and smoothed all around. The front fenders have lower extensions molded ahead and behind the wheel opening and smoothed. All the inner front panels and support systems were smoothed, relocated and painted to match the body. The doors were also smoothed and utilize 2003 GM latch and handle systems for a clean appearance. The side rocker panels were extended the full length to give an even and finished look to the bottom edges. The rear quarters, you guessed it, smoothed with the rear side lights removed and the ends of the rear spoiler molded in place. The rear decklid is similar and features an original spoiler that was reshaped and molded in place. The rear body panel has reversed tail lamps fabricated from a ’69 Camaro and a welded in pop up gas cap. The rear bumper is also a 1969 unit that has been trimmed to fit. All the painted surfaces are PPG base coat clear coat Super Red with Silver Pearl. Once you raise the hood, you’ll see another cowl induction unit that is functional and removable. Lurking beneath this work of art is a very well built 468 Big Block that balanced and blue printed utilizing a solid roller camshaft and 10.5:1 compression. Other notable engine details include aluminum small chamber rectangular port cylinder heads with 2.19 intake and 1.88 exhaust valves, .620 lift camshaft, single plane intake manifold topped by a 830 CFM carburetor and aluminum accessories and pullies. Big blocks have a reputation for running hot, that can be easily addressed and was with this build thanks to a HD aluminum radiator and dual electric fans set up to cool 650 horsepower. The music this engine makes is the result of ceramic coated headers flowing through a set of custom stainless steel pipes and mufflers. Transferring this beautiful power plant to the ground is a 2005 Dodge Viper 6-speed, heavy duty clutch converted to hydraulic actuation and finally to a 12 bolt rear end housing a set of 4.10 posi traction gears. Slowing things down is a breeze thanks to four wheel disc brakes. Even though this car is presumed to strictly be a show car, it will do what you ask of it. The suspension and chassis were not missed. The front suspension has been heavily modified and includes shaved side rails and cross member, new tubular control arms, coil over shocks, a quick ratio steering box, heavy duty sway bar and dropped spindles for the aggressive ride height. All parts are painted in a gloss red and silver urethane finish. The underside has all new floors, unibody subframe connectors and additional braces for a more rigid chassis. The rear suspension and undercarriage are also heavily modified. Wheel tubs moved inboard two inches, shocks relocated, springs lowered and moved inboard, traction bars installed, new bearings and seals. Other modifications include a new fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel pump, relocated battery(trunk), stainless steal lines and fasteners throughout. Altered oil pan, steering linkage, transmission mount and tunnel. The last area to cover and one of our favorites, the interior. The all white interior is very easy on the eyes and just feels fresh. The guys over at Recovery Room Hot Rod interiors did an amazing job. Hats off to these guys! Custom is the theme here as is the rest of the build. Custom white leather on most surfaces, new easy to read instruments for the custom dash, a tilt steering column, Sony CD player, custom rear deck with speakers, hand brake replacing the old foot actuated parking brake, custom center console that houses power windows switches, electronic fuel pump switch and the battery cut off.
