1971 Chevrolet Camaro LS3 RestomodYou're already tempted just by the idea of a 1971 Chevrolet Camaro with an RS-style split bumper front end. But just one mere glance at this one, and you know there have been some serious investments in more upgrades. Sleek blue paint, a fresh A/C interior, six-speed transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, performance suspension, and fuel-injected LS3 motor - they all tell you this is the coolest Camaro restomod you can get your hands on right now.
The recent application of blue has the kind of shine that really gets this coupe plenty of attention. It draws people in, which is great, because this is a detail-oriented car. The iconic white racing stripes were expertly laid down to let the light roll evenly across the sheetmetal. Plus, they help accent the extra-long hood and the spoiler that runs end-to-end over the rear. This is one complete and aggressive package that is certainly helped by the chin spoiler up front. And the Rally Sport split front bumpers make way the large grille that looks like it wants to consume all the lesser cars on the road. A great finishing touch is the set of large 18-inch US Mags modern alloys that are a sure sign of more modern upgrade within.
The first impression you get when you open the door is a nice fresh black interior. But as you go in for a closer look, you see there was a ton invested to upgrade this for comfort and performance. For example, the bucket seats have been given modern bolstering and are finished in a comfy suede-like material. The door panels, headliner, and carpeting are also in a deep black to really give you a nice muscle car feeling. There are plenty of features to keep everyday drivers happy, like a retro-style AM/FM digital receiver, a cup holder center console, and the cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. But from the moment you slip behind the wheel, you can really start to feel something different. You have a full Dakota Digital gauge package upgrade, and the shifter reminds you of a modern Camaro (a big hint to what's under the hood.)
The engine bay has the unmistakable look of an upgrade. There are even nice details to make you really want to show it off, like the color-matched blue on the valve covers, air intake, and shroud over the aluminum radiator. You're looking at a 6.2-liter LS3 V8. When this fuel-injected powerhouse was in cars like the C6 Corvette and 5th gen Camaro it produced over 425 horsepower! It made for truly a new era in V8 muscle cars, and they also got more gears to play with it. So that's why the 6l80e six-speed automatic transmission was also transplanted, too. There was nearly $14k invested in this build, and the consignor states the engine was installed about 1,000 miles ago. So that's how you get such a fresh and professional look. Plus, the undercarriage photos reveal more terrific upgrades, like tubular control arms w/coilovers, subframe connectors, and sway bars front & rear. There's also power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy performance tires reinforce this great driving attitude.
When you want an all-out dominator of a classic Camaro that also knows how to handle in everyday situations, then this is your wish list in one sleek coupe. Call today!!!
