It goes without saying that power is a prized commodity in muscle cars, yet the term is subjective - unless the power in question attains the otherworldly levels featured in this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Restomod. With its incredibly potent drivetrain and high impact appearance, it's a one of a kind specimen that's sure to turn heads wherever it goes, and is capable of providing a truly unique, neck-snaping driving experience. This stunning beauty placed in the Top 15 at SEMA just a few years back, and with only 169 miles on the clock since the build was completed, this show-stopper is going to dominate the circuit for years to come.
Certainly no shrinking violet, this unusually powerful Camaro is clad in a custom shade of Yellow Pearl, a flashy hue that's fitting for a ride with its capabilities. The attention-grabbing exterior is downright amazing, featuring smoothed-out and sculpted body lines down the profiles and welded and smoothed seams throughout the car, resulting in a slicked-out canvas that was ready and willing to be covered by the deepest, glossiest yellow paint we've likely ever seen. Those signature black hockey-stick stripes are no mere decals - they're painted on and look impressively fresh, with sharp edges that provide nice contrast to the vivid finish. You've probably already noticed the cut-out hood that's been ramped up a few notches in the custom bodywork department, a well-executed modification free of the Frankenstein-ish seams you often encounter with such an aggressive change, and whose expansive clearance also serves notice of the incredible power that's sitting just underneath. This car's appeal goes beyond merely making a strong statement, as it's also a built that was finished purposely so the spirit of 1969 was fully evident, and not completely changed and covered up with custom touches. Its chrome trim on all sides is in excellent shape, with smoothed bumpers found fore and aft, and the hideaway headlights up front and trick taillights out back bookend the car beautifully. Bottom line, every square inch of this car was painstakingly restored to an incredibly high show standard, and the results speak for themselves.
The interior features the same theme featured outside - a super-custom look with lots of modern features that still manages to keep the spirit of the original configuration and identity of this classic Chevy. Open the door and climb inside, and you're surrounded by a highly customized, bespoke black leather interior with an undeniable abundance of flash, but with plenty of comfort too. The bucket seats in front are completely custom-made, featuring sculpted bolsters and billet eyelets in the seat bottoms, and the matching backseat looks just as slick. The door panels continue the magic of ingenuity and are offset with Yellow Pearl accents that double as handles, the dash is a custom-sculpted, handmade piece, and underneath lies an expanse of leather that's punctuated with polished alloy strips. Just in front of the Billet Specialties steering wheel perched on a tilt column is a full set of Dakota Digital gauges that match the auxiliary units in the custom center console. And speaking of the center console, it houses a Sony multi-media player that powers the competition stereo system, along with that cool-looking shifter for the automatic transmission below. There's no A/C but you do get power windows, and out back the trunk is full of a beautiful subwoofer and amp set-up that's ready to turn up loud and rattle some windows.
As far as power goes, you'll quickly get the picture when you open the hood and find a thundering Dart 'Little M' 400 V8 Chevrolet motor that grunts out HUGE horsepower thanks to the giant 8-71 Weiand supercharger up top, working in concert with an Enderle bird-catcher hat, and a 200 shot of NOS. Finished in more polished aluminum bits than you'll find at most SEMA shows, it's a street-legal piece that runs on pump gas and thinks it was built for the track. It's fed through an electronic fuel-injection system, long-tube Hooker headers, and an HEI ignition in addition to all the stout goodies inside. The reinforced chassis carries a fully adjustable Shockwave airbag suspension and Tru-Trac 9 rear end with 31 spline billet axles, so nobody can accuse this of being a race-only piece. Power disc brakes live at all four corners, there's a power rack-and-pinion system, and the full Maganflow dual exhaust system sounds simply spectacular. Rolling stock consists of trick 20-inch Billet Specialties wheels wrapped in low-profile performance rubber at each corner.
With less than 200 miles on the build, this predatory Camaro has yet to realize its potential and it remains show-quality throughout. Quite frankly, we could've kept writing about it all day. If you're thirsting for more, call today!
