1970 Camaro SS Restomod – The Build

March 17th, 2018

It requires but a glance to see that this is no ordinary Gen II Camaro SS. Thanks to the Roadster Shop, what was once a dirty, greasy, rusted, and forgotten muscle car is transformed into the masterpiece which is the focus of this video.

It begins with a total teardown of the unibody car and fashioning a fully-boxed, chrome moly chassis and custom Roadster Shop Fast Track suspension. The factory sheet metal was reasonably straight but is now flawless and a fully functional wide body kit makes this a Camaro that you will never forget.

Under the hood, there was spared no expense. The naturally aspirated Thompson Racing Ls7 engine is situated 5-inches farther back in the chassis than the factory engine. This helps with body flex and overall balance. The big 7.0-liter mill is outfitted with a Harrop cross-ram intake manifold and throttle body which draws clean, cool, ambient air from the front of the grille. A Dailey dry-sump system is responsible for lubrication duties and a Tilton bellhousing and Jerico 5-speed manual dog box handle the shifting duties.

You will be treated to a ride along and multiple remote camera angles as this rare beast gobbles up the track.
