Years ago, when Marshall Emery started his 1967 Camaro project he never thought it would take this long to get it done. But, as many of us can attest, projects sometimes take on a life of their own. The teardown went pretty quick and eventually the body was painted, but there it sat, stuck in project car purgatory.
Well, that was then and this is now. The painted shell has been hauled over to Thunder Alley in Mesa, Arizona, to get put back together and back on the road. The Camaro was sans suspension and didn’t even have a front subframe, so a call to Heidts Performance was made. What showed up was their Pro-G front subframe. Combined with new tubular control arms, power rack, and Pro-G drop spindles this was a complete solution to their missing chassis parts. This took care of the Camaro’s front end but they still needed a plan for the rear.
Since the team didn’t have a rear differential and they knew Marshall wanted excellent road manners, they went, once again, to the Heidts catalog for a solution. Here, they found the Pro-G IRS system. This kit would give the Camaro modern handling and, best of all, it’s a bolt-in deal, which was important since the Camaro was already mini-tubbed and painted underneath. Once the suspension is installed and the Camaro is once again a roller, the team at Thunder Alley can work on the rest of the project and finally get this stalled Chevy back on track.
