Designed from the outset as a more conventional replacement for the rear-engine Corvair, Chevrolet’s original F-Body Camaro was far more than a belated response from General Motors to Ford’s wildly successful first-generation Mustang. Debuted in late 1966 for the inaugural 1967 model year, the Camaro was value-priced from just $2,466 for the basic hardtop coupe and available with virtually every factory option available from Chevrolet. Best of all, the Camaro’s engine bay accommodated virtually the entire Chevrolet passenger-car engine range, from thrifty inline sixes and lightweight small-block V-8s, all the way up to the fire-breathing Mark IV big-block. On the street and track alike, Chevy racers quickly adopted the Camaro. In the skilled hands of Penske Racing and Mark Donohue in SCCA Trans-Am competition and a host of drag racers including Bill “Grumpy” Jenkins, Dave Strickler, Herb Fox, and others, the Camaro almost instantly became a motorsports legend with strong performance on the showroom floor to match. The Camaro proved to be an extremely successful gamble for Chevrolet and public demand continued unabated for 1968 and 1969. Meanwhile, Ford Mustang sales began to stall, reflecting the greater variety of competitors in the increasingly crowded “ponycar” market. Changes for 1968 represented careful refinements to the basic Camaro design aimed at improving comfort, safety, and handling. New frontal styling for 1969 and other detail changes made a great car even better. The 1969 model year also marked the end of the line for the first-generation Camaro, which remains highly coveted today as quite likely the ultimate evolution of the line. A lengthy strike at GM’s Norwood, Ohio assembly plant delayed the introduction of the new-for-1970 F-bodies to early 1970s, resulting in an extended production run for the beloved 1969 models, which went on to serve as the main design inspiration for today’s current-generation Camaro.

Assembled at Norwood, Ohio F-Body assembly plant in December 1968, this early-production 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 was delivered to Bill Jacobs Chevrolet Inc. of Joliet, Illinois. According to a copy of the original window sticker, the Camaro was highly and unusually equipped, with many rare and desirable factory-fitted performance and appearance options including the iconic Z27 Camaro SS Equipment package and visually striking Lemans Blue paint finish with Parchment vinyl roof covering. Other excellent original features include the Z87 Custom Interior with Black Vinyl/Houndstooth upholstery plus a D55 Center Console, N34 Sport-Styled Steering Wheel, U17 Special Instrumentation, ZJ9 Auxiliary Lighting, and U79 AM/FM Stereo Pushbutton Radio, a high-end and high-dollar option when new at $239 alone. Serious performance potential backed the stunning looks with the factory-specified RPO L-78 396 cid engine rated at 375 horsepower, topped with RPO L-89 Aluminum Cylinder Heads priced at $832 – a no-holds-barred option applied to just 311 Camaros in 1969, according to the published data from GM Heritage. Other great options include a Muncie M-21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, N40 Power Steering, a G80 Positraction Rear Axle with 3.73:1 ring and pinion, and even a full set of floor mats from the factory. Carrying an MSRP of $5,213 before applicable taxes, the Camaro SS was obviously intended for a discerning and wealthy original buyer. The highly selective consignor acquired the L-78/L-89 Camaro in 2009 after a high-quality restoration. While he has only sparingly driven the car, it has nonetheless enjoyed fastidious care, proper storage, and maintenance ever since and virtually regardless of cost, including professional detailing including the engine bay and most recently, installation of a correct new exhaust system ($4,900). No expense has been spared to make this Camaro one of the most desirable examples extant. Offered in stunning presentation and complete with a copy of the window sticker and Protect-O-Plate, it is simply one of the finest.
