When it comes to nearly universal appeal, few cars bring it quite like the Chevrolet Camaro. While many of its competitors placed an emphasis on speed, style or some other singular piece of the puzzle, the Camaro did its best to be everything to everyone while providing a solid foundation to build upon. While almost all its dials have been twisted past 11, this incredible F1 continues to be a car that virtually ANY enthusiast can hop in and thoroughly enjoy. From the brutal GM Performance Parts LS7 and Tremec 5-speed to sinister paint and a custom Paul Atkins interior, everyone who checks out this super clean coupe finds something different to admire!
Recently built into a lean, mean pavement pounding pro-tourer, this spectacular Chevy wears a professional, rotisserie restoration that features a number of thoughtful upgrades which modernize both performance and appeal. The car, a solid, 6-cylinder coupe when its transformation began, was carefully stripped all the way to bare metal. With that metal thoroughly worked, and aligned to better-than-factory fit, glossy black base was accented with bright red stripes and sealed in thick clear. And today, this national award winner rolls as one eye catching classic that mixes major street presence with lethal curb appeal!
With its timeless proportions and modernist panels, the first generation Camaro is an inherently attractive design. And with today's world-class restoration techniques, it has become an excellent canvas for any skilled builder to create a seriously nice car. At the front of this clean F1, a satin-trimmed grille centers bright "SS 427" lettering between a custom valance, small driving lights, bullet-trimmed parking lamps and custom bumperettes. Above that grille, a striped and louvered hood hangs a cool Corvette Jake insignia between Corvette Grand Sport fender dressings. Behind that hood, stainless-trimmed glass rides between polished wipers, painted drip rails and a centered 'shark fin' antenna. At the sides of that glass, sculpted fenders complement modern mirrors, traditional door handles and custom quarter gills. And at the back of the car, a D80 deck spoiler hangs custom Corvette Grand Sport hashing over a billet fuel filler, LED taillights, a mirrored bumper and a color-keyed tag bracket.
Lift the Corvette-stamped hood and you'll find $14K worth of Corvette V8 that was sourced directly from GM Performance Parts. Twisting 505 SAE-certified horsepower into a massive 470 lb./ft. of tire-shredding torque, the lightweight LS7 rumbling between the car's fenders is a 21st century testament to the bowtie division's enduring small block. Founded in GM's very successful Corvette racing program, the brutal mill utilizes a forged crank, titanium rods and hypereutectic pistons to flat out whip pretty much anything with four wheels. A perfect amount of oxygen flows from a cased filter element through a Satin Black air tube to a familiar GM throttle body. That wind mixes with fuel in a composite intake and progresses to CNC-ported cylinder heads that are built with lightweight titanium valves. Immediately following combustion, spent gases roar through free-flowing, long-tube headers. Charge comes courtesy of a fresh alternator that, like the car's Sanden compressor and PSC steering pump, spins a modern accessory drive. Items like a Be Cool radiator, GM Performance Parts plug wires, a Wilwood Hydratech brake booster and big SPAL puller fans ensure earth-shattering performance. And, braided fluid lines, a satin-finished radiator cowl and billet hood supports join a color-keyed, Corvette-branded engine cover to enhance traditionally conservative aesthetics.
Take a look under this fully sorted panther and you'll find a professionally restored chassis that's clean, classy and ready to hit the road. Behind the smooth engine, a proven Tremec TKO500 5-speed spins a Moser-branded 12-bolt around Moser 33-spline axles. Beneath that solid driveline, a Detroit Speed QUADRALink trails a powdercoated Detroit Speed front half, which turns with the help of C6 steering knuckles, C6 bearing packs and power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners of the car, a combination of Baer and GM-style calipers clamp four drilled and slotted rotors. Charred dinosaurs float from the aforementioned headers to either large-diameter cutouts or mandrel-bent pipes, which hang an X-shaped crossover in front of polished Magnaflow mufflers. Power meets the pavement through $10K worth of custom EOD wheels, which spin 225/40ZR18 Michelin Pilot Sports in front of 275/40R19 Michelin Pilot Sports. And the car's fresh, Satin Black floors are finished with Detroit Speed mini-tubs, sturdy subframe connectors and a custom fuel tank.
Inside this cool Camaro you'll find a $17K leather interior that was installed by well-known customizer Paul Atkins. 2-tone F4 Camaro buckets frame a sturdy, bolt-in roll bar and 4-point Schroth racing harnesses. In front of those seats, a thoroughly modified dash hangs a straight and crack-free pad above bright Auto Meter Sport-Comp II telemetry and touchscreen Sony audio. Beneath that dash, fade-free carpet frames a custom, full-length console that's fitted with a familiar Hurst shifter, flush power window switches and controls for the car's Vintage Air climate system. At the edges of that carpet, custom side panels bridge the gap between billet foot pedals and a custom package tray. Above those panels, a sculpted suede headliner centers a small dome lamp behind a billet mirror. In front of the driver, a custom steering wheel, designed to match the car's EOD footwear, spins a color-keyed rim around a satin-finished, tilting column. And behind the passengers, the car's custom trunk is detailed all the way to its color-keyed hinges.
