133100 / 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/cnp8rx4 Built by the artists at GelPro Rod & Muscle, this awesome 1969 Camaro is one amazing pro-tourer that definitely has the killer performance credentials to back up its eyeball searing looks! The guys who built this red and silver gem pulled out some new ideas and the execution is professional on every level. In profile, the first thing you'll notice is that rear spoiler, which is not a ducktail or some cheesy tacked-on wing, but a completely integrated reshaping of the rear of the car. The quarter panels and deck lid have been modified in steel to create the look you see here, and it creates a kind of kamm-back appearance that was used so effectively on cars like the Ferrari 250 GTO and Shelby Daytona coupes. Other modifications include a reshaped scoop ahead of the rear wheels, taking the place of the factory "gills." You'll also note that the door handles were shaved, along with the side window trim, side marker lights, and all the emblems, making the car's panels slick and clean. The paint is gorgeous Hot Hues "Silva" and basic high-gloss black, with a red pinstripe separating the two. There's a steel cowl induction hood, a full complement of stainless greenhouse trim that adds a nice finishing touch, and shaved mirrors which sacrifice a bit of function for the purity of form. This Camaro does plenty of advertising for the 550 horsepower LS2 V8 under the hood. Extensively reworked by the pros at Turn Key Engine Supply, it still runs like a factory piece and is driven by electronics instead of a carburetor—the essence of the pro-touring movement. Fire it up, and there's no question that there's a big cam loping away under the hood as it barks and snarls through a pair of custom long-tube stainless steel headers. The car's transmission is a Tremec TKO600 5-speed manual spinning a narrowed Ford 9-inch that was custom fabricated for this build and filled with 3.90 gears on a limited slip. The suspension has been heavily modified with Detroit Speed tubular A-arms and Koni coil-over shocks up front, along with a power rack-and-pinion setup that makes the steering track like a laser-guided missile. The rear suspension is a modified 4-link with a Panhard rod and another pair of Koni coil-overs. There's a vented and cross-drilled Wilwood disc brake at each corner, with six-piston calipers up front, and two-piston units out back. And custom 18 inch alloy wheels, which were fabricated just for this build, wear extremely trick 275/35/18 front and 335/30/18 rear BF Goodrich radials. Open its shaved doors and this car gets even better. Every single component in the interior has been customized and hand-fabricated just for this build by the guys at LB Custom Interiors, and you'll be stunned by the acres of supple red leather with ostrich skin inserts. I think it's probably safe to say that not a single piece of 1969 Camaro trim remains inside this car, and it's all beautifully crafted. The driver gets a custom gauge panel full of Auto Meter carbon fiber gauges, while the passenger gets a touch screen entertainment system and an attractive carbon fiber panel. That trick entertainment system includes navigation, the ability to play DVDs, and a back-up camera whose lens is mounted underneath the rear license plate. Right below are the controls for the powerful Vintage Air HVAC system, and the billet vents scattered throughout the interior ensure fresh air for all passengers.
