SINISTER BLACK ON BLACK, BUILT 350CI, 4 SPEED, 4 WHL PWR DISCS, PROTECT-O-PLATE
For a lot of us, someday is a day that'll never come. Someday we'll build a car like this 1967 Camaro SS, someday we'll have the time and money, and someday we'll go cruising in it. Well, there's no shame in admitting that sometimes it's just smarter to buy a finished car, and once you take a closer look at this one, you'll realize this is just how you would have done it anyway.
Sure, you'd paint yours black, especially if the bodywork was this straight. For pure intimidation, nothing beats a snarling V8 rumbling under a cowl induction hood, and with SS markings and just the right stance, I'm betting you won't get many takers at the stop light grand prix. That's OK, because this car is almost too pretty to risk doing something foolish, with paint that's about twenty feet deep and a mirror-like shine that will make you proud to own a black car. The doors fit nicely and all the correct SS gear is in place, including chin and decklid spoilers, a blacked-out grille, and, of course, the requisite SS badges all around.
The black Strato bucket interior offers just the right modifications to make it the ideal travelling partner. All the original gear, including those seats, the door panels, and the carpets have been replaced so it looks like new in there. Once you're behind the wheel, you'll be pleased to find that wood-rimmed steering wheel you've always admired, as well as a Sun Pro tach on the steering column and a trio of Auto Meter auxiliary gauges under the dash. The Muncie M20 4-speed is topped by a Hurst cue ball in the center of a genuine GM center console, so it has a highly finished look inside. With a manual gearbox and a snarling V8 up front, there's not much need for additional distractions, but the original AM radio's there in the dash with an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit neatly stashed in the glove box. The trunk is filled with a new mat and a handy full-sized spare.
We have lots of details on the engine, which is gnarly enough to be a legitimate threat, but not so high strung that it's no fun on the street. Starting with a 4-bolt main block, it was stuffed with a SCAT crank, GMPP connecting rods and set of Keith Black 10.6:1 flat-top pistons. Up top, there's a pair of World Products heads that have been ported and polished, and fed by an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and 4-barrel carburetor. Crane supplied the roller valvetrain, and there's enough dress up on there to make you want to pop the hood every time you stop for gas-you know, just in case anyone's looking. The suspension has been fortified with Hotchkiss springs and KYB shocks, and there's a disc brake at all four corners. A 2.5-inch exhaust system fed by long-tube headers and muffled by Flowmaster gives it a distinctive sound. Four black torque thrust Foose wheels wearing Goodyear Eagle F1 tires provide a very distinctive look while it also comes with a set of Rally's.
Complete with a Protect-O-Plate and receipts, this is an ultra-clean F-body that you can proudly drive and show anywhere. Best of all, it won't cost you five years of weekends to build. Call today!
