George W’s 1969 Camaro

Built From The Ground Up

George W’s 1969 Camaro

George bought his 1969 Camaro in 1979 without an engine. It did, however, have a brand new cowl induction hood. A friend had a 350 that they rebuilt and put in the 1969 Camaro.

He drove his 1969 Camaro until 1982. He then gave the Camaro
to a family friend who put new quarters and fenders on the car. He took off the vinyl top and primed the car.

In 1983, George bought a house with his wife and made sure it had a two-car garage. One side for his wife’s car and the other side, for the Camaro. Well, the following year, they had a baby boy. Then they had another boy and finally a baby girl.

The 1969 Camaro sat in the garage for the next 36 years. His family was all out on their own now, and he and his wife finally said let’s get the restoration of the Camaro done.

He spoke with 5 different restoration shops, and he decided to bring it to 2nd Generation Auto Restoration in Walpole, MA. The owner Stan and the crew of workers he had did an amazing job with his frame-off restoration. During the restoration, they installed a 383 stroker with 445 HP and installed a turbo 350 automatic. No stripes, no back spoiler, just a great paint job, and cowl induction hood

It took 2 years to do the restoration, and now it’s time for George to start cruising in the Camaro. He plans on going to a lot of local car shows with his finished Camaro. He really loves going to cruise nights at Bass Pro Shops in Foxboro, MA.

"I had a great experience with ground up. Sales and customer service people were very professional and extremely nice to deal with. 2nd generation auto restoration gave me your number and I was very happy "

-George W
