This 1969 Camaro Convertible is equipped with the legendary Chevrolet Big Block, It's an original 396 / 375 HP engine . In 1968 and 1969 your Chevy dealer knew it as factory option  RPO L78. (it was also available as COPO L-78)

     With the L-78 option, you got a true square - port head design & freer flowing exhaust manifolds,as well as high volume fuel pump and other go-fast goodies. This pretty much ensured that most of these cars were destined to be taken to the track, and raced - right from the factory.

     Mine has the close ratio Hurst- Shifted M21  Muncie 4 speed, and with a posi - traction, 12 bolt rear, quick - ratio steering, and factory disc - drum  power brakes, so this one stops as nicely as it goes.

     And when it comes to driving, this ragtop is as close as you'll ever get to driving a locomotive...

      After seeing how original this 31,000 mile car was, I decided to NOT restore it. So, as a true survivor, it also acts as a time machine.

    This LeMans Blue convertible is a Norwood, Ohio, 5th week of September 1968 car, and is still wearing all of its' original sheet metal, 90% of the paint as well as the original blue vinyl interior,LOF tinted glass, console guages, rosewood dash, and dash pad, tilt rosewood steering wheel, and the original factory convertible power top, the "late 68 "tall" spoiler, and rides on 15 x 7 SS wheels. 

     Another nice option is the GM optional ZL-2 "cold air hood". It's also  known as "Cowl Induction" 

    At throttle positions of 90% acceleration, a solenoid opened the flapper , and cold air from the lower windshield area was forced into the L-78 specific 760 cfm carburetor.
