Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
With a hot small block, overdrive transmission, speedy style, four-wheel disc brakes, and an A/C interior, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is both an SS tribute and one of the best all-around restomods you can get your hands on right now.
The midnight black has an intimidating tone and shows off an excellent shine once the sunlight catches the clearcoat finish. And this one has the unmistakable look of performance with the super scoop cowl hood, full-width rear spoiler, and icon racing stripes painted on in a high contrast white. Plus, those competition-style 17-inch American Racing wheels draw added attention to the lowered and more aggressive stance from the BMR suspension kit. While this gives you the attraction of an enhanced performance icon, don't forget to check out the fundamentals, too. The mirror-like chrome bumpers, pliable weather-stripping, and overall panel fit tell you there has been an investment in quality.
The interior is pure classic Camaro cool. It has houndstooth seats, deluxe door panels, SS sports steering wheel, and the horseshoe shifter in the center console as part of some of the best pieces available in '69. This even has the iconic tic-toc-tach! But a restomod means giving you more than just a great vintage setup. This has been enhanced to make it easier to enjoy any time. It's done with well-integrated features like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. And the original heater controls now have a full Vintage Air A/C setup (it may need a recharge to blow fully cold again.) And a full set of AutoMeter Pro-Comp auxiliary readouts on the center console tell you there's something special under the hood, too.
The heart of this beast is a 350 LT1 V8. Oh yes, this is a more modern motor with aluminum heads. But they did take some time to give it the right old-school upgrading to be right for this classic Camaro. We have receipts showing it has been bored 0.40 over. There's also an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, GM Performance aluminum intake, a mild cam, and long tube headers feeding a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. It also has the right supporting pieces like a serpentine belt system, Mallory distributor, electric choke, and an aluminum radiator. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 four-speed unit. It's stout enough to handle the enhanced power while also delivering overdrive comfort. This was built to be both fun and strong, and so you not only have the BMR suspension pieces, but also subframe connectors, a rear sway bar, and Bilstein shocks. Add in power steering, modern performance tires, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes, and this is the tight handling first-gen Camaro you've always wanted.
Complete with the build receipts, this is a sweet ride with a sinister look. So don't miss out, call today!
