Originally a base model Olympic Gold muscle car from Los Angeles, California, Adrian Clark’s 1969 Camaro is now a Black stunner powered by a well dressed small block 406 Chevy motor capable of 500 horsepower and 570 pounds of torque and lives in Adelaide, South Australia. Check out the video story we put together for his ride and read more on the build below!
Back in 2007 Adrian was initially looking for a ’68 model, but he came across this Black 1969 Chevy Camaro offered for sale by its current owner in Melbourne, Australia. The guys was asking for a decent price, as a Californian vehicle there was no rust, right hand drive conversion was already done (properly), vinyl top was in great condition and there were not too many ’69 Camaros around back then so Adrian purchased it.
The 1969 Chevy Camaro was already Black, but the paint work was terrible, shares Adrian. He has spent many hours polishing it and with the help of a friend in the end it came up real nice. Then he went through the suspension and steering, put a set of 15-inch Centerline wheels, refreshed the interior and it was time to start working on the powerplant.
The 1969 Camaro came from the factory with 350 V8, and the current 406 Small Block 4-bolt main Chevy motor is dressed with R260 crane solid roller cam, AFR cylinder heads, Elderbrock air gap intake manifold, modified quick fuel 750 double pumper carburetor and MSD ignition. The power is sent through Turbo 400 trans with B&M pro stick shifter, 4000 stall. The rear is a rebuilt LSD 10-bolt with 3.55 gears and the exhaust is ceramic coated custom 2 and 1/2.
