1969 Chevrolet Camaro, the perfect midpoint between show and go

Ground-up restored by Michigan’s All Speed Customs, this sweet Camaro eventually found its way to Orlando, Florida’s Ultimate Auto for $276K worth of additional customization.

Stripped bare and made solid in Michigan, the car adopted custom metal spoilers and functional ducting that vents its blown engine and upgraded rear brakes.

And after everything was test fitted for the second time in Orlando, rich red base was accented with custom, ‘brushed’ striping and sealed in glossy clear. Straight from Chevrolet Performance this F1’s 6.2 liter LS376 crate engine twists stout 10.7 to 1 compression into 480 horsepower and 475 lb./ft. of pavement-busting torque – and that’s not even considering the $35K Whipple supercharger upfit that was performed by Ultimate Auto!

Behind that smooth mill, a tough Tremec 6-speed twists power to a 12-bolt Moser axle that’s finished with a Detroit Truetrac differential and big, 4.10 gears. A thoughtfully upgraded suspension centers fluid power steering between red Wilwood calipers that utilize proven Hydratech boost to squeeze drilled and slotted rotors.

And torque transitions to pavement through $12,500 of forged Alpha One wheels and massive Nitto Invos. Behind the solid-closing doors you’ll find a $24,500 leather interior that wraps piped and stitched seats in a nice blend of classic flash and modern flair.

A custom, leather-capped dash hangs track-ready Racepak IQ3S telemetry beside modern climate control. Below that dash, a custom, LED-lit console anchors a colorful Pioneer head unit in front of small power window switches and a tough Ringbrothers shifter.

And in front of the driver, a MOMO Prototipo steering wheel laps a tilting column. Well-built, fully detailed and attention grabbing in every way, this Camaro finds the perfect midpoint between show and go.
