COMPLETELY RESTORED, BUILT 355CI, VINTAGE A/C, INCREDIBLE PAINT, 700R4 TRANS
This 1967 Camaro is one of those cars you could look at for hours and still not see everything that's been tweaked, sanded, smoothed, or refinished. Not quite a resto-mod, it retains its original "Camaro-ness" but polishes it in such a way that this is a lot more than a garden-variety F-body.
The familiar Camaro shape has been completely restored, and clearly the work was done on a rotisserie, because it's as clean underneath as it is up top. A steel cowl induction hood was installed during the reconstruction of the car, and it only emphasizes the ultra-clean lines of the early Camaro. A billet grille is a very welcome alternative to the ubiquitous blacked-out SS piece, and smooths the look of the car for a custom look. Out back, a ducktail spoiler adds traditional Camaro styling and while there's an SS gas cap, the rest of the car has been almost entirely de-badged save for basic Camaro on the front fenders. The paint is a totally custom mix that complements the ultra-smooth look, with an icy finish that looks like it could slip through the air without even creating a breeze. Like I said, you could spend hours examining this and still be delighted by the tricks you find.
That's especially true inside, where the black bucket seat interior successfully blends stock and modified components to create something both tasteful and unique. Original low-back buckets look right at home in the early cockpit, and the rear bench has been upholstered with a matching seat cover for a very OEM look. Reproduction door panels were used, and we're so used to seeing cars with SS gear stuffed inside that the base model stuff looks pretty trick. The dash also gives away the fact that this is a factory A/C car as well, which has been upgraded with a modern Vintage Air setup using the original controls. A complete set of Classic Instruments white-faced gauges now live in the original round pods, surrounded by a gorgeous wood-rimmed wheel that steals some of the original design cues. Lokar provided a billet shifter that looks like a manual gearbox's stick but actually controls a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive. And for entertainment, there's a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds as good as the interior looks.
The engine is a snarky 355 cubic inch small block V8, heavily massaged to generate serious horsepower. There's a new Edelbrock top end kit that includes the intake, carb and heads. Plus, a set of gorgeous ceramic-coated headers feeding a 2.5-inch Flowmaster exhaust system. Beautiful chrome Chevrolet valve covers compliment the reworked stock air cleaner that blends styles for an all-new look and totally functional cowl induction. A lot of extra attention went into hiding the plumbing and electrical wiring, and as a result the engine bay looks almost deserted aside from the handsome V8. Underneath, the front suspension upgraded with lowering springs and a fat anti-roll bar, plus a pair of ventilated and cross-drilled discs. Out back, you'll find 3.73 gears which will snap your neck but with that overdrive transmission, it still loafs along on the highway. Oh, and another set of discs for the rear wheels, too. The wheels are by Foose and wear 18-inch performance radials.
