If you're going to dream, dream big. Clearly someone wanted to build the ultimate F-body, and pulled out all the stops to create this stunning resto-mod 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. With a thundering big block under the hood, high-impact bodywork, and a traditional Camaro tech interior, this is the F-body we all wish we owned.
Seriously, if you could have a vintage Camaro built any way you wanted, isn't this pretty much what you'd wish for? The bodywork is laser-straight and looks like a million bucks from any angle, so they clearly spent the time to get it right. The bright lime green paint with a satin black hood sure isn't subtle, but somehow it works on the vintage Camaro sheetmetal. That cowl-induction hood, ducktail spoiler, and SS-style blacked out grille and chin spoiler were added during the build, and aside from some minor signs of having been driven, there isn't much to complain about here. There were no liberties taken with the Camaro's classic shape, and even the original Camaro script emblem was reinstalled on the nose, although most of the others were shaved. Chrome bumpers add a little contrast, but other details like the side gills were painted black for a bit of a custom look. Nobody will say this thing doesn't have the right look.
From behind the wheel, there's no way to tell that this isn't a restored standard Camaro. The stock interior has been mostly refinished to factory specs, and the workmanship is quite good throughout. Original buckets, a center console that features a quartet of auxiliary gauges, as well as a familiar horseshoe shifter for the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission underneath. That billet steering wheel is a great addition, and you'll note that most of the original gauges are gone, replaced by very cool square gauges that match the shape of the pods for a unique look that works really well. You'll also note that this car carries A/C which has been upgraded with a modern compressor and R134a refrigerant and there's a very impressive AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds great. In the best resto-mod tradition, this car blends the best of yesterday and today to create something truly spectacular.
Spectacular is one word for the 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. It's as audacious as the bodywork, wearing bright green paint, but it's also remarkably docile, with a hydraulic cam and pump gas-friendly pistons inside. An Edelbrock aluminum intake and Demon 750 CFM 4-barrel carburetor deliver the fuel, while a set of long-tube headers use Flowmaster mufflers to handle the exhaust via a set of turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle. There's a big aluminum radiator up front, a March serpentine belt drive assembly for reliability, and all-new hardware and plumbing throughout. The Camaro's suspension wasn't modified besides a set of tubular lower control arms and custom springs to lower it a bit, and a set of C5 Corvette brakes give it impressive stopping power. The aforementioned TH400 feeds a reinforced 12-bolt rear with 3.23 gears on a Posi limited slip, making it comfortable under any conditions. Blacked-out Foose wheels look great against the green bodywork and carry fat 245/40/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials.
