This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is all about taking one of the most aggressive '60s designs and adding ultra-slick paint, modern trim, custom A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, a modern LS3 V8, and so much more. So yes, this is the ultimate restomod muscle machine with all the best upgrades.
There are zero worries that anyone will look at this coupe and think it's bone stock. The excellent metallic gray paint is borrowed from a much more modern Corvette palette, but even that won't confuse this car for anything straight from the factory. The investment in plenty of modern clearcoat applied by a very professional hand has a mirror-like effect that highlights all the best curves. You know the body is laser-straight because imperfections can't hide from this kind of artistry. Only the best chrome around can keep up with this kind of shine, and you'll love the new bumpers, custom grille, and polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. This is a mean machine that makes its presence known even when standing still thanks to custom details like the crystal-clear headlights and enhanced power bulge in the cowl induction hood.
Open the door to a full custom interior that has a terrifically dark performance attitude. And with less than 5,900 miles on this build, it all feels exceptionally fresh. Those bucket seats have all the right modern bolstering to keep you planted on twisty roads while also being all-day comfortable. In-between is center console with tall armrest, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo that has modern connections for Bluetooth and you iPod. There's even cold R134a air conditioning. This really does have all the right modern conveniences, including power windows, power locks, and an alarm system. You'll slip behind the grippy sports steering wheel with cool classic Camaro center cap. Beyond that is a custom carbon fiber gauge panel that includes a full readout package, including a large AutoMeter speedo and tach. All of this gives your senses the tingle of performance even before you twist the key and hear this one roar.
You'll love popping the hood at car shows and showing off the top-notch transplant of a modern Camaro motor. The fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 V8 is a very cool powerplant to have. After all, they were part of the Camaro's latest revival, and they are good for well over 400 horsepower right out of the box (and that's not counting the added Texas Speed camshaft!) This performance crate motor was installed less than year ago, and it includes the right supporting components, including a Ron Davis aluminum radiator, Dirty Dingo serpentine belt system, and MSD Street Fire CDI ignition. The V8 inhales deeply through a K&N cold air intake, and it exhales with authority from the Flowmaster H-pipe dual exhaust. The modern 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission was built to handle all this extra power and even provide overdrive comfort. And take some time to look at all the undercarriage photos. The suspension has been upgraded with tubular A-arms up front and a four-link rear with adjustable coilovers. Plus, there's power steering, BF Goodrich gForce Super Sport tires, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.
There's so much in this custom that we just don't have the space to list it all. But give us a call, and we'll go over all the build receipts. Until then, just know that this is the kind of Camaro for those who like to be seen, heard, and envied.
