As cool as first generation Camaros are, it seems that EVERYONE either owns one or knows someone who owns one. And as much as we enjoy watching killer F1s parade through our doors, it's always nice to see a well-done second generation car. Being an avid Camaro fan, you probably know finding a highly polished F2 isn't all that hard. But the chances of scoring a unique, fully-sorted pro-tourer seem almost as likely as purchasing a winning lotto ticket. Luckily, since the passionate gearheads at RK Motors Charlotte specialize in the unique and fully sorted, we can offer you one-of-a-kind opportunities like this attractive, carefully modified 'hugger'. Wrapping a supercharged Gen III LS6 and tough Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed in custom leather upholstery, this super clean muscle car will ensure you enjoy miles of open road and plenty of high octane summers!
During its body-off, rotisserie restoration, this solid old panther was entirely disassembled and carefully stripped of its dull, original pigment. Once that prep was complete, an incredibly straight fuselage was augmented with fresh quarters and a new trunk pan. As that massaged sheetmetal featured better-than-factory alignment, a rich coat of Metallic Orange base was detailed with black Rally Stripes and sealed in glossy clear. When that clear dried, labor-intensive hours were spent buffing a spectacular shine. And today, one close look at our high resolution photos reveals a handsome payoff in the form of one of the coolest Chevrolet muscle cars on the planet!
Built to look old school but drive like a modern Corvette, this brazen coupe adds increased significance to the "working man's Ferrari" mentality that GM famously threaded in to F2's development. At the front of the car, a 2-piece Rally Sport valence centers a 4-piece, "Z28" branded grille between ornate parking lights, modern headlamps, a requisite chin spoiler and mirrored bumperettes. Behind that valance, a classy header emblem leads the eye to a smooth, stainless-trimmed hood, which fronts pristine, stainless-trimmed glass that's cleared by hidden, Rally Sport windshield wipers. At the sides of that hood, the car's clean fuselage centers polished door handles and body-matched mirrors between clean marker lamps, simple "Z28" emblems and straight rocker guards. And those mirrors reflect a tastefully modified deck spoiler, which centers a correct "Z28" emblem above a bright bumper, polished exhaust pipes and Rally Sport-exclusive taillights.
One thing you won't have to worry about in this Chevy is power. Thanks to a supercharged Gen III LS6, this sweet split-bumper defies any notion that it's just some pretty parking lot poseur. More specifically, that engine, ordered as a $15,550 kit from Turnkey Engine Supply of Oceanside, California, creates a dyno-proven 585 horsepower! At the front of the all-aluminum mill, a chrome-trimmed serpentine drive spins a polished alternator and polished AC compressor behind a color-keyed HPS Performance Short Ram Air Intake. Once air enters that system's K&N cone, it flows through a factory-spec throttle body to a polished Magnuson supercharger that's bolted down over lightweight 243 heads and GM-spec internals. High-octane fossils are provided by reliable electronic fuel injection, which is monitored by a liquid-filled Allstar Performance gauge. Sparks are sequenced through a custom wiring harness and pliable 7mm plug wires. Spent gases swirl through ceramic-coated shorty headers. And cooling comes courtesy of a beefy Ron Davis radiator that's centered on dual SPAL puller fans. On the visual end of the spectrum, mirrored coil covers perfectly complement the block's various shades of silver. The conservative engine compartment seats body-matched fenders beneath billet hood supports, Hotchkis brace bars, and an attractive, "Z/28" branded mat. And niceties such as braided fluid lines, quality CBR hoses, polished fluid reservoirs, a proven Wilwood master cylinder and a billet-cased Optima battery add a tailored feel to quality assembly.
Take a gander under this cool F-Body and you'll find a fully detailed chassis that mixes new age technology with old school durability. Thoroughly solid floorpans wear a clean coat of Metallic Orange 2-stage and, save for hours of buffing, are every bit as nice as the car's first rate exterior. At the center of those floors, a proven Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed, ordered as a $4,600 kit from Turnkey Engine Supply of Oceanside, California, makes excellent use of a posi-traction differential, 31-spline axles and big, 3.90 gears. Stopping is a cinch thanks to hydroboosted Wilwood calipers and a quartet of 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Exhaust is handled by large-diameter stainless pipes, which wrap smooth Mandrel bends around an X-shaped crossover and chambered Flowmaster mufflers. At the front of the car, modern power rack-and-pinion steering complements beefy tubular control arms. At the back of the car, an adjustable Heidts Pro-G 4-link aligns with boxed subframe connectors. Torque melts the pavement thanks to American Racing Torq Thrust Ms, which spin 255/45ZR17 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs in front of 285/40ZR17 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZRs. And, as you can tell by our high resolution photos, not a detail was missed on this Chevy's fully-sorted undercarriage.
Open the car's long doors and you'll find a customized leather interior that's stylish and very livable. There's a quartet of bucket seats that were probably donated by something modern. In front of those thrones, a monochromatic dash hangs $1,020 worth of Dakota Digital VHX telemetry over a Pioneer CD player and Vintage Air climate control. At the bottom of that dash, an orange-stitched console centers a long Hurst shifter between fade-free carpet and "Z28" branded floor mats. Opposite that console, custom door panels hang minimalist hardware over orange-stitched armrests. Above those panels, a tight headliner flows to big rear speakers, which are seated in an "RS" branded package tray. Speaking of Rally Sport attire, the driver spins an "RS" branded steering wheel around a tilting column. And passengers stow essentials in a fully carpeted trunk.
