SHARP DAYTONA YELLOW PAINT! STRONG 350 V8, AUTO, PS, PB, 4 WHEEL DISC, NICE!!
This is the right way to do a resto-mod Camaro. Take one gorgeous 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, and leave the look alone (because you're not going to do better than this). Add a strong-running crate motor and a pavement-hugging suspension. Finish with a tasteful, yet functional interior that keeps everything that was great about the original design but adds a splash of modern tech. This car totally nails it.
The bright Daytona Yellow paint is the first thing that grabs you about this car, but it isn't the only thing that's impressive. It's recently done and shows the result of many hours of labor-intensive ministrations with a deep shine and excellent finish work for a distortion-free surface. On light-colored cars, gaps are important, and they're pretty darned good here, and the painted-on black Z/28-style stripes are buried under the clear for a seamless look. Regardless of whether it's a real SS, all the classic SS details are there, from the chin spoiler and blacked-out grille to the proper emblems to the ducktail spoiler out back, so it's got a great performance look. But it's up close that you really enjoy the extra work. Dig the power antenna on the rear deck, the beautifully-fitted black vinyl top with blacked-out stainless trim, and the cowl induction hood, all of which enhance the car without making it seem over-done. Nice!
The black interior is anchored by a set of chairs from a late-model, which are aggressively bolstered but also cleverly reupholstered to mimic the original vertical pleats so they fit right in. SS embroidery on the headrests is a nice touch, and the matching door panels tie it all together. A billet steering wheel is the most visible upgrade, but it's a nice alternative to the original plastic tiller. Factory gauges monitor the engine, including a full set of white-faced auxiliary gauges down on the console where they belong, right in front of the fantastic horseshoe shifter. An AM/FM/CD stereo system sounds great thanks to plenty of sound insulation in the body and you'll note that even the rear package shelf has been neatly reupholstered. The trunk is correctly finished with a reproduction mat, adding to the blurry line between stock and modified.
The engine is a fresh 350 cubic inch V8 crate motor, and obviously it's a neat fit in the Camaro's engine bay. It's dressed with some chrome goodies, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and intake manifold, and a set of block-hugging headers, so you know it makes plenty of power. The yellow bodywork and gloss black inner fenders provide the perfect background, and there's a big radiator up front for when you're running it hard. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission which always seems to be on its toes, as well as a 10-bolt rear end with just enough gear to make it entertaining without getting annoying on the highway. The front suspension is augmented with tubular A-arms and new shocks, while the stock leaf springs manage the rear. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system gives it that characteristic rumble, and it's fitted with a big disc brake at each corner, so it'll stop as well as it accelerates. Big 18-inch Boss Motorsports wheels certainly grab your attention and they're wrapped in staggered 245/40/18 front and 275/40/18 rear Nitto performance rubber.
This car is the right combination of style, substance, and performance, making it one of the most appealing early Camaros we've seen in a while. Call today!
