Dubbed, “Tour De Force”. This 1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS is an X-rated muscle car that was built by Health Elmer Restorations and Pryde Fabrication.

It has been featured in multiple magazines including Goodguys and Popular Hot Rodding. The documentation for the awards and magazines are included. This second generation Camaro is the ultimate street machine with its aggressive appearance and modern technology. The exterior body is very straight with excellent gaps lines throughout. It was finished in Gun Metal Gray with black trim which looks radical. The paint work is beautiful and visually stunning. It was outfitted with an Anvil carbon fiber hood, trunk lid and rear filler panel. Some additional exterior custom touches include third generation Camaro mirrors, Buick door handles, narrowed and painted front bumper. All of the tinted glass was replaced new. The car has a killer stance on satin black Rushforth Whiplash 18” wheels. The front wheels are 18x10 with new BF Goodrich G-Force Rival 275-35-18 tires. The rear has a DSE mini tub kit for the massive 18x12 wheels with new BF Goodrich 335-30-18 tires. The one-of-a-kind interior was done by the Upholstery Shop and Sound Expressions.

The engine was dressed with custom valve covers with breather vent tanks, March Performance Pro Track air cleaner, Vintage Air front runner pulley system and Holley Sniper fuel injection system. The engine is cooled by a Ron Davis aluminum radiator, DSE water pump and dual electric fans. The engine breathes out custom headers and dual 3” black ceramic coated exhaust with Borla mufflers.
