383 CI STROKER, 4-BOLT MAIN, TUNNEL-RAM, DUAL-QUAD, PB, FRONT DISC, RED ON BLACK
Some guys like to make a grand entrance, but other guys, like the one who built this arrest-me-red 1968 Camaro Pro-Streeter, prefer to kick the door in and shoot off some fireworks when they show up. If that's your style, this is your car, because it's anything but subtle, but the overall look is aggressive, yet tasteful.
Perhaps the most significant additions are those velocity stacks hanging out of the hood; if you're going to carry that kind of firepower, you need to have the look. In that regard, this Camaro is a slam-dunk, because the eyeball-watering red paint is forever deep and just the right shade: not a tomato, not burgundy, but a bright red that nails the look perfectly. The other trick mod is the shaved front bumper, giving this F-body a smooth look that suggests high performance and helps keep the burly stroker motor cool. The paint and bodywork were done a few years ago and I don't think the intent was to build a trailer queen, given how well this one runs, but you'll have no problems attracting a crowd with it. SS badges, a black grille, and a minimum of flash give it a purposeful look that shows off the classic Camaro lines quite well. If ever there was a car that embodied speed, this is it.
There's just enough race gear inside to make the point that this is no garden-variety Camaro, but it remains very streetable despite the race buckets and cage. For example, there are nice red door panels, a full carpet set on the floor, including a fully upholstered rear area that has been taken over by the wheel tubs. The original gauges remain in the dash, augmented by an Auto Meter monster tach up top and a trio of auxiliary instruments down low, plus a fat steering wheel that totally looks right in the racy interior. There's even an AM/FM stereo in the dash with speakers in the doors, so it's a pleasure to cruise. The clean trunk offers a race-grade fuel cell and a relocated battery that do their best to help it hook up.
The 350 badges are only partially correct, as it's now powered by a 383 cubic inch stroker motor. Based on a 4-bolt main block, it makes enough torque to make those wide-by-huge tires a necessity, and with the tunnel ram setup and a pair of Holleys up top, it definitely looks the part. Like all race powerplants, simplicity is the key, but it's detailed like a show piece, with body-colored paint on the block, lots of chrome dress-up, and a minimum of extraneous equipment. A big aluminum radiator with an electric fan cools the beast, and a Mallory ignition system hides in the glove box. It's backed by a heavy-duty TH400 3-speed automatic with a few tweaks inside, as well as a narrowed 12-bolt with 4.11 gears inside. A custom suspension with Koni shocks at all four corners gives it a perfect stance, and the 3-inch exhaust system sounds like the WinterNationals in your garage. Classic Centerline wheels wear 165R15 front and 29x18.5-15 tires for the full Pro-Street treatment.
