You're looking at an award-winning custom build of a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS. And more than just slick paint, this has a professionally-built A/C interior, an amazing undercarriage with upgraded suspension, four-on-the-floor, and a big power V8 nestled in one of the coolest engine bays ever.
This coupe is the perfect combination of vintage looks with big investments in custom pieces. The Sunset Orange Metallic paint has an almost copper-like tone, and the body has the look as if it was treated like a precious metal. So you have a deep luster and a smooth shine that loves to let the sunlight roll evenly across the panels. It's a good thing that chrome all around this car has a mirror-like presence, because anything less could never compete with the paint for the attention-grabbing shine. But the appeal in this one is beyond its radiance. You have already noticed some upgrades such as cowl induction hood and D80 rear spoiler. Plus, there are some terrific touches like the billet-style grille that draws added attention to the hidden headlights of this real-deal Rally Sport. Pieces like the custom taillights and 17-inch Foose wheels make sure this one announces it a custom from every angle. And everything from the cool Ringbrothers door handles to the color-matched brake calipers are all part of the thoughtful details that make both enthusiasts and car show judges say "Wow!"
Open the door to a full custom interior. It utilizes the exterior color for inspiration, and then upgrades the whole package for modern comfort. If you look closely, you can see that the front bucket seats were borrowed from a final-generation Trans Am. They wanted the body-hugging contouring, but they're now rebuilt in a two-tone tan with supple Ultraleather. They used this as the vision for the color pattern on the other custom pieces, like the rear seats, side panels, dash, headliner, and even the trunk. Thoughtful builds like this are also all about being comfortable drivers. That's why you have great upgrades like the custom armrest center console, a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette, and air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. Upgraded pedals, a sports steering wheel on a chrome tilt column, and a full set of AutoMeter Carbon Fiber gauges are all about giving you that performance tingle from the moment you get in the driver's seat. And that bright Hurst shifter on the four-speed is just calling out for your right hand.
The engine bay is just as award-worthy as the rest of this custom build. Those ultra-smooth color-matched inner fenders funnel your attention to the tidy motor in the middle. And there are great details everywhere, including Ringbrothers hood hinges and a two-tone hood mat that matches the interior. And we know you'll love talking about this motor. This is said to be a 358 cubic-inch V8. That's the same displacement allowed by NASCAR, and the way this one revs and performs makes it feel like it has the forged internals of a race car. Plus, it's built with aluminum heads, a Brawler four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum intake, and Hooker long tube headers that feed into an H-pipe dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers. And this has the right supporting pieces, like upgraded pulleys and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. So this mighty motor was truly made to run. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see a clean and painted presentation that will have you putting a mirror under this coupe. But don't forget to also spot the great driving upgrades, like Detroit Speed tubular control arms up front, upgraded sway bar, and frame connectors. While a car like this seems too pretty to drive, it really was built to be enjoyed. That's why you have power steering, modern performance tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors.
This is such a cool build that we didn't even have time to get into its barn find story. But this does come with the restoration photos to tell the tale of this awesome custom's transformation. It's time to make your dream car a reality. Call today!!!
