This muscle car looks intimidating and backs that up.
It’s understandable why people get all excited about survivor cars with a numbers-matching engine and transmission, factory, paint, etc. That’s obviously not what this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro is all about, because this is a bold restomod. It’s rocking a modern powertrain, interior electronics, and a seriously worked-over appearance that makes the muscle car a standout on the road.
Let’s skip past all the cosmetics and get first and foremost to the heart of this Chevy, a FiTech fuel-injected 5.3-liter LS V8. That means greater efficiency, which translates into more power, plus you know it’s going to fire up each time you turn the key. Mated up to that is a T56 6-speed manual transmission, so clearly this car is made for an enthusiast and not a casual driver who doesn’t like rowing through the gears.
You’re going to love hearing this muscle car rev, thanks to the 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust. Also helping with the engine exhale are long-tube headers. Adding more balance are 4-wheel disc brakes graciously donated by a C5 Chevy Corvette, plus a Wilwood master cylinder.
Cosmetically, this car is clean as can be, but it’s not wearing a bit of chrome on the exterior or interior. In fact, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything silver and shiny anywhere. But that red paint is nice and glossy, while black accents on the grille, bumpers, etc. match up nicely with the black 5-spoke wheels. As you can clearly see, this car is sitting nice and low. There are coil overs in the front, while the rear has been mini tubbed to accommodate those large tires.
If that’s not enough to move you, perhaps the custom interior with suede headliner and four bucket seats is. The gauge cluster is digital and there’s a nice custom console with cupholders, which makes this car so much more practical.
If you’re interested in grabbing is restomod, it’s being offered through GAA Classic Car Auctions. They can supply information about how to register to bid on this car before it’s gone.
