As a car enthusiast, you already know modern technology allows us
to transform classic cars into incredible performance machines. But
you probably don't realize the extent to which those machines are
built. In what amounts to literally buying a car and sending it
directly to a reputable shop, you can have a classic that feels
just as comfortable, performs just as well and looks twice as nice
as any showroom-new equivalent. That's exactly what happened with
this insane Camaro pro-touring restomod. Born from universal appeal
and broad aftermarket support, this world class coupe is a virtual
tour de force of proven mechanicals. And with a clean body that's
dropped on a custom suspension, fitted with a leather-lined
interior and bolted to a cammed up LS7 small block, it's the kind
of killer classic that makes factory-fresh bowties shake in their
run-flats. If you're shopping for some fully-sorted muscle that
puts a modern twist on an old school favorite, you're looking at
your next car!
A CUT ABOVE THE REST
The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration, this
slick '69 Camaro features a seamless coat of Gun Metal Grey paint
that's highlighted by satin black. Take one look down the sides of
the car's rock-solid body and it becomes very obvious that great
care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to
better-than-factory standards. Step closer to that body's
mirror-like pigment and check out its straight and ripple-free
surfaces, which are a product of both clean OEM sheetmetal and high
quality replacement panels. Grab the pivotal pieces of that
well-adjusted sheetmetal and experience the kind of excellent fit
that's right at home reflecting a summertime car show. Then step
back to admire one very well-done pro-tourer that's built to
exacting specifications thanks to a great combination of skilled
workmanship and first-rate finishing techniques.
On the sacred tree of hot rodding, pro-touring foliage, along with
its pro-street brethren, often receives the brightest light. That
means high end, high profile cars must have exceptional looks to
back up their big claims. And nowhere is that dedicated attention
to aesthetics more prevalent than this Camaro's top notch
detailing. At the front of the coupe's body, the grille has been
blacked out between vacuum-operated headlights and modern parking
lamps. Above that grille, a traditional Cowl Induction Hood leads
the eye to smoked glass that's framed in straight stainless trim,
traced by body-matched drip rails and flanked by F2 sport mirrors.
And at the back of the car, a small "HARDCORE" script hangs between
flush taillights, a D80 spoiler, a second show bumper and a
slightly modified roll pan with custom dual exhaust.
Gaze upon this Chevy's smoothed engine bay and you'll find 427
cubic inches of fury! Professionally assembled by the folks at
Greening Auto Company, this serene mill is capable of producing 650
horsepower. Their is a custom air intake from the team at Auto
Greening Company, Detroit Speed stainless steel headers, and a
stainless steel Magnaflow exhaust with an electric cutoff valve.
And in front of those headers, a beefy Ron Davis radiator, which is
sandwiched between a polished overflow tank, a snazzy cowl and two
electric puller fans, circulates water past a mirrored March
serpentine system. While this engine's main purpose is to go
straight at a very high rate of speed, it's still very impressive
to look at. And accessories like Painless wiring, braided hoses, AN
fittings and Ringbrothers black hood supports ensure it'll wow
showgoers and gearheads alike.
Behind this coupe's solid-closing doors you'll find a $24K M&M
Hot Rods interior that wraps firm Sparco buckets in high style and
rich comfort. At the front of the car, a custom dash hangs a slick
set of Greening Auto Company Gauges and Vintage Air climate
control. Below that dash, a custom console, a custom console was
built to hold the premium Pioneer head unit for the world class J-L
Audio sound system and anchors a short shifter. Below that console,
high quality carpet rides between billet foot pedals, custom sill
plates and thick, "RS" branded floor mats.
The trunk is a literal work of art housing two J-L Audio 13.5"
subwoofers with 1,200 watts of power. The custom audio install uses
Dynamat Extreme soundproofing so all one hears is their favorite
tunes as opposed to a trunk rattling. LED lights have been
strategically placed to highlight the craftsmanship and exacting
specifications of the owner.
Sometimes the best cars are the ones that speak softly. No blower
sticking through the hood, no stall-inducing idle and no wild
graphics. Just a clean, solid, well-constructed classic that was
purpose-built to look great and kick asphalt. With its timeless
style, excellent performance and modern comfort, this slick Camaro
is a blast to drive AND admire. Don't miss the chance to own a
powerful, well-sorted performer that's even cooler today than it
was back in '69!
