What makes a muscle car what they are, is none other than what lies underneath the hood. This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS is powered by a 400ci v8 engine which has been punched out to an even more impressive 406ci, making the car a serious drag racer if need be. The engine is fuel injected and is reported to push out an impressive 500hp. All this power is sent to its rear wheels through a 3-speed automatic gearbox which has an overdrive extension which the seller claims make it a 6-speed automatic gearbox when the overdrive is switched on, meaning you can cruise or bruise at will. The increase in power isn’t an issue for the rest of the car thanks to a 12 bolt Posi-Traction rear axle in place to hold the power down efficiently. You also get power brakes and power steering making this a vintage American hero that you can drive around with ease. The brakes in the car are all new with the disc brakes being slotted and drilled for extra stopping power. There’s also a new 3” exhaust in place enabling the engine to roar to its hearts content.
