A 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS that is still in the original owner's family!

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, brought to us by the son of the original owner.   It's a very cool car, and it has never been restored and is still wearing nearly all of the original paint.   It was original powered by a 307 V8 backed by a 3-speed manual transmission, and it's wearing the RS trim option.  The problem is that it needs a complete restoration due to many years of storage in a barn.

1966 Oldsmobile 442 Convertibles are not that common these days, especially when they are equipped with the 3-two barrel carb engine and factory installed air conditioning!   This one is even hotter with the triple-black color scheme and Hurst wheels.   The list of options is long... factory headrests, console vacuum gauge, full instrumentation including tic-toc-tach, rear seatbelts with holders, passenger side vanity mirror, and of course, the 400-cube V8 topped with 3 two barrel carbs and a 4-speed transmission!  It's a very cool car, and it came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some maintenance and leak fixing so the owner can drive it and enjoy it trouble-free.
