This is my baby. Every thing u see on the car was in a dream I had no joke
first off i give a big thank's to A plus auto for all the time and work they p... Show moreut in to the car.
Starting with a real deal 1969 Camaro SS/RS 396 as evidenced by the original fender tag), an 18 month build, using all high-end components, turned '69 into the show-stopper
The heart of this Camaro is definitely the engine, a 502 Chevrolet crate engine, bored to a 540. The steel heads have been ported and polished, with titanium valves installed. An Isky roller cam and roller rockers were installed, along with a 7 quart oil pan. Fuel is supplied by a Demon 850 carburetor, topped by a custom fabricated air cleaner. Fuel is supplied by a high capacity electric fuel pump. This potent power plant fires courtesy of an MSD ignition, and beats to the tune supplied by a MSD ignition control box with rev limiter. 8.5MM MSD plug wires were installed for good measure. The engine breathes through Sanderson headers, ceramic coated, mated to a custom, hand fabricated 3" stainless steel exhaust.
Notice the Billet Specialties Serpentine belt system, which includes the Vintage Air System. All hoses and lines are braided steel, with chromed fuel lines. A chrome min-starter was used, as well as a chrome IDIDIT tilt steering column. Of course, power steering is present! The valve covers are painted aluminum. Check out the gas cartridge Billet hood hinges! The power plant stays cool thanks to custom built heavy-duty aluminum radiator with 2 12" fans rated at 3000 cfm, with an aluminum radiator cap.
The engine in this Camaro, when completed, dynoed at 827 HP. The engine can not be appreciated until you hear it start and run. When I start it at the show, everyone within 500 yards stops and comes walking towards the car. The exhaust note is incredible, and resonates with massive amounts of power.
The mechanical tour de force continues to the transmission, which is an Imtac built Muncie M21 with custom gears. The car stops thanks to a Wilwood four wheel disc system, with 6 piston calipers. The rear end is about as strong as you can get: a Dana 60 with Strange spool, complete with a Richmond 4.56 gear set, and Moser 40 spline axles. Overkill for a cruiser? Perhaps ... but I guarantee you would have to try real hard to break this set-up!
The suspension is equally as impressive. A complete Air Ride Technologies system is in place, and functions from within the cockpit and with a remote control. HYIT tubular A-Arms, narrowed, are in place, as well as coil over lower arms. A chromed four link rear suspension with a chromed wish bone on the rear end look incredible. A 12 gallon fuel cell and braided steel hoses complete the incredible, detailed undercarriage.
Body modifications include hand-fabricated side panels with the exhaust built into the body, stretched and widened quarter panels, and the elimination of the side marker lights. The paintwork is national show quality House of Kolor Molly Orange paint and simply stunning! Every singe piece of chrome trim, stainless steel and bright work is jaw-droppingly perfect. All tinted glass in the car is brand new.
The Camaro rolls on Intro wheels, 18x16 up front and a whopping 20x16 in the rear. Mounted on these custom wheels are four brand new Mickey Thompson S/R Radials, 26x8x18 up front and 31x18x12 in the rear. From every anglestopper!
to the interior, supplied by The Recovery Room Interiors. A 1959 Chevrolet Impala dash, complete with molded AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges (fuel, voltage, speedometer, oil & water) are present, and are stunning. The dash is topped by a Vin-Tec steering wheel with a Billet Specialties horn button. A custom leather console is present, complete with an AutoMeter Pro-Comp UItra-Lite tachometer, and a Corvette shifter. Power window buttons are incorporated into the sides of the console. The front bucket seats, headliner, rear compartment and door panels are custom creations, using imported Italian letter. The completely custom interior is classy, functional and fits nicely within the theme which is maximum performance, with maximum visual Show Less
