It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the coolest cars on the planet. From the Bel Air to the Corvair, ts seems that every longstanding model has transformed a solid clientele of buyers into a devout following of gearheads. Earlier this month, hen Chevy debuted the latest Camaro 1LE, e couldn't help but think about all the great milestones that marque has enjoyed. And this striking Super Sport, warded the Jim Matteson Pick and Concours Gold honors at the 2015 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals, s truly in a class by itself. The beneficiary of a professional rotisserie restoration that was completed in September of 2015, his stellar piece of Americana wraps a stout 396/4-speed drivetrain in custom-order curb appeal that's sure to break necks everywhere! If you're ready to experience a car that puts the "C" in CLASSIC, ake a long look at this super cool Camaro.
As far as styling goes, ew vehicles have aged better than late '60s and early '70s Chevrolets. In fact, oeing the line between traditional and modern, he first generation Camaro is probably one of the most attractive cars ever built. Benefiting from a ground-up restoration that's seen less than 10 miles of street time, his impressive F1 seals rich Pontiac Verdoro Green under a bright Super Sport stripe. That clean 2-stage, 100% correct appearance custom-ordered by the car's first owner, ighlights a laser-straight profile that's built from a soda-blasted shell and professionally dipped pivoting panels. That solid fuselage was whipped into shape to the tune of $125K, hanks to Ken's Klassics Inc. of Muscoda, isconsin. And today, his Chevy rolls as a distinctly unique muscle car that scored 966 out of 1,000 points at the 2015 Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals.
With balanced proportions and crisp detailing, he first generation Camaro is an inherently good-looking design. At the front of this coupe, n "SS" branded grille hangs standard headlights and clear parking lamps above a fresh bumper and familiar D80 chin spoiler. At the top of that grille, Camaro-branded header leads the eye to a louvered Super Sport hood, atin-finish windshield wipers and date-coded glass that's framed in straight stainless trim. At the sides of that hood, hrome door handles and a correct mirror float amid small marker lamps, etailed fender ornamentation and standard rocker guards. And at the back of the car, Satin Black valance centers a fourth "SS" emblem between a D80 deck spoiler, 68-exclusive taillights and a second chrome bumper.
Hoist the hood and you'll find a 396 cubic inch big block that fronts a correct 3935440 casting number with a correct MQ assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. Introduced in 1965, hevrolet's storied L78 combined square-port, losed-chamber heads with forged pistons, steel crank and a solid lifter cam to turn stout 11 to 1 compression into 375 horsepower. Oxygen and fuel feed those heads through a polished and decaled air cleaner, ew stainless fluid lines and a correct Holley carburetor. Below that carburetor, sea of brilliant Chevy Orange paint covers the block from its correct Winters intake all the way to its stamped steel oil pan. At the back of that intake, reliable points distributor shoots spark through eight Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, hrome valve covers perfectly contrast professionally restored exhaust manifolds. At the front of those covers, tagged Delco battery complements a glossy radiator that's cinched to pliable GM hoses and tight tower clamps. Those components are, n traditional GM fashion, eated in a slick, atin Black frame. There's a full array of factory smog equipment that adds both points and value. And, hanks to a 2014 rebuild conducted by Middleton, isconsin's Performance Engine and Machine, irtually every facet of this Camaro's fresh powerplant has been taken from a 10 to an 11.
That ferocious big block spins power through a tough Muncie 4-speed, hich hangs a correct 3925660 casting number next to a 1968 (8) Muncie (P) assembled on May (E) 7th (07) build stamp. That gearbox, uilt to M22 specifications by Milwaukee natives Davids4Speeds, wists torque to a "BT" stamped 12-bolt. That first-class drivetrain rides a tagged and restored suspension that's been rebuilt to factory specifications. At the front of that suspension, actory power steering mixes easy turns with controlled sweeps. At the corners of that suspension, ower front disc and rear drum brakes provide adequate stops. Exhaust flows from the aforementioned manifolds in to fresh Gardener pipes and a correct transversely mounted muffler. And power meets the pavement through color-keyed steelies, hich spin F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sport redlines around dent-free center caps.
During this Camaro's thorough restoration, ts simple and purposeful interior was kept fully intact. Instead of the familiar bench and bucket layout most of these cars were fitted with, his panther features a correct duo of benches, ust as its original owner specified. In front of those seats, stylish dash hangs standard telemetry above a factory radio delete. Below that dash, ew carpet centers a chrome Muncie shifter between color-keyed floor mats. Correct trim abounds, ith everything framed in Standard door panels and a monochromatic headliner. The driver navigates the road though a glossy Super Sport steering wheel. And behind the passengers, restored trunk hides correct tools and a full-size spare beneath fresh decklid decals.
