This professionally built 1969 Camaro custom coupe went through a complete frame-off rotisserie restoration and wears a beautiful black show-quality paint job. The body was fitted with Detroit Speed mini tubs, smoothed firewall, custom-built smoothed and tucked front and rear bumpers with black billet taillights. A custom, one-off, handmade steel front lower and rear decklid spoiler add to its killer stance. It is finished off with eliminating trim windshield and back glass. This car has been completely rewired using an American Autowire update system to insure reliability. It sports a new black TMI interior with consoles, one-piece headliner, Dakota Digital gauges, Classic Auto air conditioning, Ididit tilt steering wheel, and a RetroSound system complete with Bluetooth. This Camaro is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine. It has a custom-made radiator and fuel tank and breathes through a custom-built cold air induction system. The LSA has been quieted by a custom 2.5" exhaust system with Magnaflow mufflers. The power plant is backed up by a T-56 magnum 6-speed manual transmission that sits atop front and rear TCI suspension. Up front is a TCI Pro touring IFS subframe with tubular A-arms, power rack & pinion steering, RideTech adjustable coilovers and a 1" front sway bar with a 2" drop for improved handing. In the rear is a TCI Mini Tub Torque Arm kit and sway bar. A newly built Ford 9" rear end with 373 gears puts the horsepower to the ground. All this is rolling on a set of custom-made Rushforth wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. This beautifully built Camaro has a set of Wilwood brakes with 12" drilled and slotted rotors and 4-piston black calipers to insure great stopping.
