Camaro’s sixth generation will soon be upon us, but 1969 will always be the most important year for this American icon. This pristine example is the latest build from Mitchell Motor Works, and is the result of a few years of restoration and fabrication. No expense was spared in order to push the envelope in terms of performance. If you are confused by this car’s title, Camaros offered a Rally Sport (RS) package that included spoilers, hidden headlights and an upgraded interior. If you wanted the ultimate in style and speed, ordering the RS and SS packages together resulted in a very potent pony car.
For a solid foundation, the car was completely disassembled and placed on a rotisserie. Their goal was to build a track-ready street car, so the suspension had to be all new. Starting with Heidt’s Pro-G front end, every component, from brakes to ball joints, is all new and made to perform. An adjustable 4-link holds the Moser 12 bolt rear in place. Front and rear are tied together with fully welded subframe connectors. For the ultimate stopping power, Wilwood 13” brakes in the front and 12” in the rear are commanded by a Hydra-Tech/Wilwood master cylinder. Without the drivetrain this car is well into six figures.
To power the world’s most capable Camaro, Mitchell turned to the LS tuning masters at NicKey Chicago. Their Stage II LS3 makes 575 HP and has CNC ported cylinder heads. 575 hp is sent through a T56 six-speed manual transmission to the 12 bolt rear end. The TrueTrac differential has 3.73 gears for comfortable highway cruising. An all stainless exhaust features dual cut-outs before the X-pipe if you need to wake your neighbors. Engine controls are all GM, with electronic throttle control and cruise control.
If you prefer music instead of exhaust, the interior is awash in Alpine audio. The 7” touchscreen has Bluetooth connectivity along with USB and satellite radio. All vehicle systems are controlled by touch pads, including the Vintage Air system. Corbeau black leather seats straddle a handmade center console. Kindig door handles and ambient lighting are among the myriad of other aspects that make this Camaro one for the ages.
