WOW! FRAME OFF RESTORED! LS1 W/ 4L60E SWAP, REAL Z/28, PS, PB, FRONT DISC, CLEAN

The second-generation Camaro got its first major facelift in 1974, mostly due to federal bumper requirements. However, there's no arguing that this recently frame-off restored 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Type LT Restomod doesn't still show clear Camaro DNA in its killer look, punctuated tenfold by the modern 5.7L LS1 V8 and 4L60E automatic driveline transplanted under that slick burgundy skin. If you're a fan of the Camaros from the early '70s but want the reliability and added power of a newer car, then this Camaro should make you sweat.

The biggest changes from the 'Early-2nd Generation Camaros' were the bumpers, which thanks to Uncle Sam and the insurance companies, now had to be reinforced with a single beam running the width of the bodywork. That meant no more of that split-bumper and open grille look to which we had all been accustomed, but thankfully Chevy designers were a clever lot and neatly integrated the new hardware and regulations for a fresher front fascia and redesigned taillights. The resulting 'Late-2nd Generation Camaros' were instantly popular, with an awesome appearance that successfully pulled off the melding of two very different eras into one slick-looking car ...

WOW! FRAME OFF RESTORED! LS1 W/ 4L60E SWAP, REAL Z/28, PS, PB, FRONT DISC, CLEAN

The second-generation Camaro got its first major facelift in 1974, mostly due to federal bumper requirements. However, there's no arguing that this recently frame-off restored 1974 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Type LT Restomod doesn't still show clear Camaro DNA in its killer look, punctuated tenfold by the modern 5.7L LS1 V8 and 4L60E automatic driveline transplanted under that slick burgundy skin. If you're a fan of the Camaros from the early '70s but want the reliability and added power of a newer car, then this Camaro should make you sweat.

The biggest changes from the 'Early-2nd Generation Camaros' were the bumpers, which thanks to Uncle Sam and the insurance companies, now had to be reinforced with a single beam running the width of the bodywork. That meant no more of that split-bumper and open grille look to which we had all been accustomed, but thankfully Chevy designers were a clever lot and neatly integrated the new hardware and regulations for a fresher front fascia and redesigned taillights. The resulting 'Late-2nd Generation Camaros' were instantly popular, with an awesome appearance that successfully pulled off the melding of two very different eras into one slick-looking car (something that many car models really struggled to achieve during this transition in American motoring). This particular Code 74 Medium Red Metallic coupe was faithfully resprayed with a modern PPG Deltron basecoat/clearcoat finish, and it looks much more vibrant than anything rolling out of a GM factory in 1974. It's not a perfect showcar, but it's evident that this was a professional frame-off job completed by skilled craftsmen with a heavy check in their pockets, and the results speak for themselves. The finish is deep and lustrous, smooth to the touch, and despite it being a darker color, our photo-booth lights dance off the vivid body panels. Clean, straight bodywork, exacting gaps, and flush doors show this original California car was likely never a problem child to begin with, but nevertheless the frame-off restoration was done right and has turned this rather rare '74 Z/28 Type LT into a top-driver quality star. Blacked-out tucked bumpers at the endcaps (not body-colored like they would be a couple years later) and the blacked-out grilles up front look menacing, the ducktail spoiler out back is sporty but not over the top, and we absolutely love that the restorers elected to not replace the vintage Z/28 stripes - allowing for that gorgeous paintwork to do most of the talking instead.

The '70s weren't only about outrageous colors and shag carpet, as the handsome, upscale interior ably demonstrates. Looking like it was borrowed from a much more expensive car, the handsome black bucket seat interior looks fresh thanks to high-end replacement seat covers, while things like the carpets, dash pad, and door panels look practically brand new as well thanks to only 1,280 miles on this build. Soft surfaces and high-back buckets make it inviting, and this upgraded interior comes with a full array of modern NVU white-faced gauges (including a digital speed read-out with shift-points) neatly arranged ahead of the driver. The tilt steering wheel, which emulates the string-wrapped wheels of the '30s, is in very good condition and correct for the car, while the B&M QuickSilver shifter inside the custom center console is an aftermarket upgrade that fits seamlessly inside the cabin. A '5.7L LS1' badge over the radio-delete plate gives away that this is not your Daddy's grocery-getter, but other than that things are stock-spec inside. That includes the taut headliner above, the virtually untouched rear seats, and the solid trunk out back, further proof that nothing was overlooked during this frame-off restoration.

Under the hood, things get a lot more interesting. Long gone is the inefficient 350 V8 this beauty was born with, swapped-out instead with an aluminum 5.7L LS1 V8 that gives this Camaro plenty of pop. Topped with a modern fuel-injection system and augmented with 853 heads, an LS6 high-flow intake, and Edelbrock ceramic-coated long-tube headers, it starts, runs, drives, and handles like it just rolled off the showroom floor this century, not last. With all that added power you also get added reliability, and therein lies the ultimate goal of this recent build – to make this car road-ready for regular driving today. The LS1 looks like it was born under the hood as well, where it was fitted and mounted exactly right, and things like the inner fenders and radiator support were powder coated for a much cleaner look. The exhaust system has been upgraded to a true dual setup without the pesky catalytic converter, making way for a 2.5" stainless set-up with chambered mufflers that sounds great. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive spinning a 10-bolt rear end with 3.42 limited-slip gears mean that performance is extremely entertaining, although it can easily handle highway travel as well. Power steering, power front disc brakes, and a big swaybar out back all improve the ride quality, while a big aluminum radiator with dual electric fans keeps the whole show nice and cool. 15-inch Rally wheels are the perfect complement to the finish, wrapped in 255/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials at all four corners with plenty of tread left.

This is one of those cars that's just built to enjoy without worries. If that appeals to you (and why wouldn't it?), then there aren't many better-driving (or better looking) 1974 Camaros available anywhere. Call today!
