  • New '69 Camaros ready in 2005!

    Well, someone is finally doing it. After years of speculation Classic Industries and Classic Automotive Restoration Specialists (CARS) will offer brand new all steel 1969 Camaro Convertibles for sale to the public.

    Customers will be able to buy either just a body, rolling chassis, or complete turn key car ready for the road.

    The convertible will be available first.....then a hard top model will be ready later.

    Next on the list in the 1967 Mustang Fastback......and maybe even one of the Dodge/Plymouth musclecars in the not to far away future.

    This idea has been circulating the old car market for a while......I am glad it is finally coming to fruition.

    Long live the musclecars!



    All this info is in the October 2004 issue of Hot Rod magazine.

        The steel body will prolly be around 12-14K. Not sure on what the rolling chassis will be, but a complete car-just like a camaro out of Detroit in '69 will be around 40K.

        Check this out. A mechanically inclined fellow could buy a new steel body and buy a crapped out 68-72 4 door chevy nova that is basically junked for 100 buck or so and use the Nova as a donor.

        Yep, both the 1st gen camaro chassis and the Nova chassis are the same....both were "unibody" cars meaning they did not use a full frame chassis....they use "sub frames". And they all interchange....

          Classic Automotive Restoration Specialists (CARS) can be found at www.classicautomotiverestoration.com

          Classic Industries can be found at www.classicindustries.com

          The tooling is already set up to produce the cars....and the assembly line will be, I am proud to say, in North Carolina.

          The steel that will be used is almost identical to the steel used in the original '69's.

          The first body is currently at LORS MAchinery in Union, NJ, for verification of welding tips, heat, and pressure needed to make the joints OE quality or better.

          One of the masterminds of the project-Jim Barber of CARS-has said that if the original 69 had 12 welds in the wheelwells, then the new ones will have 12 also.

          The jigs that will be used to put the cars together will have tolerances of .020" or less....which is prolly better than the jigs used in 1969.


          I have an original 1968 RS-SS Camaro that I am restoring and I am sure it will cost me more to replace thae body panels than it would to buy a brand new body......

          This is gonna be cool to have brand new real musclecars....especially with all the crate motors that the big 3 are making now to drop in these cars...

          A brand new 69 convertible camaro with a 500 HP 502 cubic inch big block?? OH YEAH!!!!!!!

            I love the classic muscle cars!! I know it wasn't the ideal classic muscle but I had a 77 camaro for a while. Changed the motor, tires and wheels, and paint. She was FAAASSSTTTT.

                  SS - What stage are you in in your restoration of your 68?

                    Haven't really got started as of yet. I have a few parts to locate and then maybe we will get on it. TBH I want to really do this one right-use NOS parts and cut no corners.

                      We, my wife and I, have been working on ours, on and off for 12 years. The undercarriage, front suspension all the way to the rear shackles, including the rearend and all brakes, has been totally completed. The wiring has been completely stripped out and we have all the new wiring harnesses for replacement. The interior is about 50 complete. The motor and trans is the biggest obstacle right now and then once they are completed and inserted, then all the new front body parts will be put on. Once that is complete, then it goes to a buddy of mine for the correct alignments and paint. Getting excited.
