You're already tempted just by the idea of a 1970 Chevrolet Camaro
with an RS-style split bumper front end and some Z/28 style. But
just one mere glance at this one, and you know there have been some
serious investments and upgrades. Sleek green paint, a fresh but
vintage-style interior, six-speed transmission, four-wheel disc
brakes, performance suspension, and a powerful LS3 motor - they all
tell you this is the coolest Camaro restomod you can get your hands
on right now.
Forest Green is the car's factory-correct color, but this one has
the unmistakable look of a more recent application. The paperwork
on this car shows most of the work was done between 2011-2016,
which gives it a fresher style that really shows. You see it in the
kind of shine that gets this coupe plenty of attention. It draws
people in, which is great, because this is a detail-oriented car.
It has great Z/28-style upgrades like the large chin spoiler and
full badging. The iconic white racing stripes were expertly laid
down to let the light roll evenly across the sheetmetal. Plus, they
help accent the tall cowl hood and the spoiler that runs end-to-end
over the rear. And the Rally Sport split front bumpers make way the
large grille that looks like it wants to consume all the lesser
cars on the road. A great finishing touch is the set of large
18-inch Billet Specialties modern alloys that are a sure sign of
more modern upgrade within.
The interior has an awesome vintage style done in green. The
classic cloth upholstery has a very fresh feel. That makes for a
great way to showcase details, like the low-back bucket seats that
were exclusive to the '70 Camaro. Plush carpeting, full door
panels, and a smooth dash make this very inviting. You even have
classic wood-like trim. The interior is more than just a time
capsule. They integrated worthwhile upgrades, like the retro-style
AM/FM digital tuner w/aux input. And the bright sports steering
wheel is a worthy addition while still giving you a good view of
the full gauge package. Also, have you counted the gears on the
stick shift yet?
The engine bay has the unmistakable look of an upgrade. This looks
like a powerplant forged in serious muscle, and that's for a good
reason. This is an LS3 crate V8. These are built for 500+
horsepower right out of the box, and this appears to have also been
given a cam upgrade when new. We even have receipts for over $9k
invested in this motor alone. Plus, you have aluminum heads,
hardened pushrods, fly-cut pistons, and topped with a Holley
double-pumper four-barrel carburetor. It's supported by the right
pieces, including Edelbrock cast valve covers, a serpentine belt
system, metal water pipe, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan.
Headers add even more power to this package while contributing to
the thunder of the X-pipe dual exhaust. Best of all you get firm
control over it all thanks to the Tremec T56 six-speed manual
transmission. Plus, the undercarriage photos reveal more terrific
upgrades, like Detroit Speed subframe connectors, a stout Ford
9-inch rear, and a Heidts four-link rear suspension. There's also
power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy
performance tires to reinforce this great driving attitude.
The sale comes complete with restoration photos, build receipts,
and operating/service manuals. When you want an all-out dominator
of a classic Camaro that also knows how to be a cool classic, then
this is your wish list in one sleek coupe. Call now!
