This is the right way to build a restomod F-body. Take an absolutely gorgeous 1969 Camaro and cover it with show-stopping custom Green Pearl paint from end-to-end and 'ghost' hockey stick stripes embedded down the profiles. Add a brutally powerful LSA 6.2L Supercharged V8 crate motor that is spec'd for a ZL1, a Tremec 6-speed gearbox, and a pavement-hugging suspension. Finish with a sporty and luxurious interior that keeps the spirit of what was great about the original design and combines it with the best in modern tech. And with only 2,037 miles on the build, this car is ready to dominate for years to come.
The unique Green Pearl Metallic paint (a custom mix of Toyota paint based loosely on their Frosty Green Pearl Metallic shade) is the first thing that grabs you about this car, but it isn't the only thing that's impressive. Calling it just Green Pearl seems like an oversimplification if we're honest, because upon closer examination you can see brilliant hidden notes of black, gray, and maybe even a little tan directly under the bright lights. The resulting cacophony of color is flat-out gorgeous, managing to make the car look like a sinister street brawler and aesthetic show-car marvel at the same time. Injected Customs LLC did all the work on the body (and most of the car for that matter), and they did it all to an extremely high level. Starting with a super-clean '69 body, they then smoothed the drip-rails and door handles, replaced the side mirrors with custom-mounted Buick pieces, and reworked the original fitment of all the fenders, doors, and gaps to make everything much tighter and precise than when the car was new. Smoothed side-marks were custom fit on the body as well, both bumpers were sectioned/shortened and moved closer to the body, and a '69 Trans AM rear spoiler was custom fit atop the decklid. Up front there's a chin spoiler and lower valance that looks killer, a bespoke grille and electric hide-away lights, and an aftermarket cowl induction hood with Fesler billet hinges. Everything works together perfectly and shows the result of countless hours of labor-intensive ministrations with a deep shine and excellent finish that work for a distortion-free surface. On vividly painted cars, all the little things are important, and even the smallest of details are excellent here. With that in mind, the killer look of this restomod is punctuated by the 'ghosted' hockey stick stripes that are buried under the clearcoat just subtle enough that you have to look real close to find them.
Inside, the Beige interior was given a comprehensive makeover, starting with a set of Corbeau racing seats wrapped in custom leather-and-sued materials that are found throughout the cabin. Marques Design engineered the matching door panels, headliner, package tray, and center console, and a 1967 Camaro dashboard swapped-in, painted to match the body, and loaded with high-end goodies. There's also a matching console that was created just for this car, also wrapped in that high-end upholstery, and houses the shifter for the Tremec 6-speed manual below, A/C controls and vents, and the switches for the power windows. Against the vivid Frost Green paint this interior really works well, and there's nothing in there that looks out of place despite the blend of modern components. Everything's new, of course, and they spent the long dollar on the best parts money could buy. Nu Vintage made-up the custom gauge cluster you see just beyond that suede-wrapped bespoke steering wheel, and those digital/analog units do a great job keeping an eye on the organized violence under the hood. To rein in all that power, the boys from I.C. made a custom roll cage for the entire car, and to make it fit the back seat was hand-formed to match the rest of the cabin. Of course, all the metal was thermalined before the interior went in, and that tight insulation means the Audison Bluetooth System and all those competition-style JL Audio speakers sound wicked inside. The carpets are modern shorthair, the headliner is custom, and even the trunk was finished to show standards nothing was overlooked in this one-of-a-kind build.
Under the hood, the stout LSA 6.2L Supercharged V8 GM crate motor was originally pegged for the Camaro ZL1 at 600HP, but after the pros at I.C. got through with it, it's pumping over 700HP and 685 lb.-ft. of torque. Quite frankly, there's not enough space here to go through all of the top-of-the-line attributes of this insane fuel-injected motor, but some of the highlights include a beefed-up supercharger with large injectors, a bigger ZL1 intercooler, and a one-off exhaust with custom headers running to a twin X-pipe Flowmaster setup. The engine bay itself is a work of art, with extreme organization that would make the OCD Institute blush, and beautifully painted pieces everywhere you look. That powerful motor is managed by a quick-shifting Tremec T-56
