What’s better than a cool build of an even cooler Camaro? Well, the answer would be a freshly built Camaro that you could stuff into your garage for just few bucks. To celebrate 50 years of the iconic F-body, the Classic Industries F-Body Nationals will be building, and then giving away, a completely restomodded 1967 Camaro!
The Trim Parts 1967 Camaro giveaway car they started out with was pretty nice, but Alan Pound and the team at A&R Restorations wanted to kick it up a whole lotta notches. The Camaro was blown apart and problem metal was repaired or replaced with panels from Golden Star Classic Auto Parts. Once the body was massaged and laser straight the whole deal was given a fresh coat of red Axalta paint. While that was going on the subframe was prepped, powdercoated, and fitted with a complete Stage-4 handling kit from Classic Performance Products, including their Hydra Stop system. The Right Stuff fuel and brake lines were ran and the Chevrolet Performance Connect & Cruise drivetrain, courtesy of Gandrud Performance Chevrolet, was carefully set in place.
The interior was reworked with items that included PUI soft parts, an ididit column, and Classic Instruments gauges. To get everything working, new wiring from American Autowire and an Optima battery were added to the equation while a Vintage Air A/C system was dropped in to cut through the summer heat. Other bits from SoffSeal, Trim Parts, and Dynamat, among other companies, were added to finish off the restored look while billet parts from Eddie Motorsports added some eye candy to the mix. When done, the stunning Camaro will roll on American Legend wheels wrapped in high-performance Falken rubber.
So, what’s the catch if you want this Camaro in your garage? Well, it’s pretty simple; just register a car for the Classic Industries F-Body Nationals ($55 pre or $70 day of event) and be present at the show September 15-17, 2017, at Memphis International Raceway!
