Modern LS1 Powers This 1969 Chevy Camaro RS/SS Restomod

This blown first-gen might be the perfect restomod.

The first-generation Chevy Camaro started to roll into Chevy dealerships for the 1967 year model, and enthusiasm for the name plate has never really let off. Fast forward to 2020, and the first-generation Camaros are easily the kings of both the era, and the Camaro moniker - they are exceptionally desierable collector cars. One common trend for the early Camaros we love seeing is when they become the subject of a well-executed restomod, like this 1969 Camaro RS/SS.

This Camaro has not been passed around like many collectibles you will see over and over again at the auction block; it was built to its current specficiations in 2012, and remained in the care of that current owner since 2012.

Starting with a rust-free California Camaro body, the foundation was right for this impressive car to recieve a full, frame-off restoration. It was outfitted with a ChassisWorks frame, and is finsihed in silver with bold blue stripes.
