1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS
This is a 1967 RS/SS Camaro Pro Touring LS2 5-speed convertible. Less than 3000 miles since built!
The engine in this Camaro is based on a the 6.0-liter LS2 Corvette engine and was built by Turn Key Engine Supply in Oceanside, California. With a pump-gas-friendly 10.9:1 compression ratio, it belts out an impressive 510 horsepower and 480 pounds of torque significant bumps over the stock Corvette numbers. Easily identified modifications also include a twin-filter air intake and a set of beautifully crafted long-tube headers that dump into a Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust system. There isn't much you can do to make an all-aluminum small block V8 look better than it does, but this one has been dressed for show. Up top, there¹s a trick carbon fiber engine cover that hides the factory coil packs and intake under a beautifully finished shroud that looks as high-tech as the engine itself. It¹s been formed to follow the contours of the composite intake manifold and has "LS2" and "510 HP" emblems molded into the clear coat just in case onlookers start wondering what it is.
The firewall has been smoothed, and everything has been bathed in more of that gorgeous custom blue paint. The Corvette¹s factory engineering was retained wherever possible, from the accessory drive to the engine controls. This car drives like a new 2016 vehicle; turn the key and it fires up instantly, idles perfectly even when cold, and pulls down surprisingly good gas mileage. Sharp-eyed buyers will also note the large master cylinder that feeds the massive Baer disc brakes at all four corners, as well as the Vintage Air A/C compressor.
The engine is backed up by a stout Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, and the clutch has been converted to hydraulic operation thanks to a McLeod hydraulic throw out bearing.
A 3.73-geared 12-bolt lives out back, channeling all that horsepower through a limited slip differential. The floors have been beautifully finished in satin black.
Detroit Speed and Engineering supplied the suspension, which includes tubular control arms up front and a four-link rear suspension in back, all suspended on adjustable coil-over shocks at the corners. Hotchkiss Performance kicked in a set of sway bars to keep it level, as well as chassis stiffening components like the sub frame connectors and center X-brace, which are critically important on a convertible channeling more than 500 horsepower. Flaming River took care of the steering system, and that Baer braking system features 6-piston calipers up front for eyeball-popping stopping power. Rounding out the chassis (no pun intended) is a set of gorgeous 17-inch billet BonSpeed wheels (designed to mimic the original Camaro Rally wheels) wearing B F Goodrich performance radials.
Inside, you¹ll find a spectacular custom interior that is anchored by a set of supremely comfortable bucket seats from Recaro. Lined entirely in matching blue and white leather, it¹s a modern cockpit that fits the theme of the car perfectly. The dash is full of high-performance Autometer gauges and the tilt steering column and waterfall steering wheel are from Flaming River. Everything was custom stitched for this car, not from a kit, and as a result, everything is beautifully finished with arrow-straight seams and beautiful piping. The 2-tone leather matches the exterior colors of the car and doesn¹t permit either color to become overwhelming. Of course, the A/C controls and powerful entertainment system have been carefully integrated into the dash, and everything functions properly. The top is a brand new piece from Electron, and operates as new.
