Referee certified LS1/6speed 85 SS montecarlo
OK i know my camera skills were lacking. theres a bunch more videos on my
channel of this car..most filmed by other people so u dont have to feel
cheated. in my defense i was nervous in the beginning and excited at the
end ..in addition to trying to film with a flip camera not really looking
through its tiny little screen. if anyone can feel me on that
100% homebuilt 85 SS monte. LS1, 6 speed, OBD2 conversion. complete
drivetrain, harness, fuel system, dash and other misc. parts out of a 99 SS
Camaro. the Camaro only had 47k miles when it
came into my possesion. rest of the car including heater, lights, wipers,
cruise control and things like that all being powered from the Camaros harness/controls. none of
the 1985 harness remains except the dome light circuit. t
GM A-body 12 bolt reareand with 4.11:1 gears and a true track posi fitted
with the ss Camaros 12"
rear disc brakes. shortened upper trailing arms and adjustable lowers with
spherical rod ends to fit the older/beefier/wider rearend. still a work in
progress at this point, but to me getting the referee to approve my work
was a big deal and a huge step. this car passes california smog legally! go
green!...well as green as you can go with a full size, v8 powered car thats
built for thrashing.
