Finding real survivor cars is a really cool and rare deal. Take Gordon Rojewski's original-paint wearing '67 for example. The untouched Camaro was built in California, but was found hiding out in El Paso, Texas. Gordon snatched it up and brought it home to Michigan. This was a real base model with a 250-inch inline-six, Powerglide trans, and no power options—not even A/C. With a full tank of gas, it tipped the scales at a svelte 2,961 pounds. As such, it was deemed the perfect candidate to modify into a sweet corner carver.
"My wife and I drove the car around as purchased during the summer. When winter arrived, my brother Brian and friend Tom Gardner blew the car apart before delivering it to Sled Alley in Clinton Township, Michigan," remarked Gordon. The plan is to preserve the original panels and patina-rich Marina Blue paint, but go all-out on the mechanicals. The suspension will center around a Detroit Speed Inc. Hydroformed subframe and a rear QUADRAlink system. The gearheads at Sled Alley will also graft in a set of DSE deep tubs and subframe connectors. Powering the Camaro will be a Thomson Automotive 422-inch LS7 backed by a D&D Performance-prepared T56 and Currie 9-inch rear. The rolling stock will consist of Formula 43 RAD 10 wheels filled with Brembo brakes. Check out www.sledalley.com for updates on this worked-over survivor.
