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.

Here is a clearer video. You can see a bit more detail and there was also
a bit more sun out today! And yes it is one of the 202 factory 4 speeds
they made that year. But now it's fitted with a muncie M-21 with a 67
chevelle 12 bolt 3:31 posi. I know, I know I need a new gas tank. One
thing at a time. I need to recover the front seats, put in the new
headliner, and install my new carpet. After that I may take off the upper
and lower A frames and powder coat them, of course at (Top Dog Powder
Coating) and put in some new bushings. The rear end has UMI upper and
lower control arms as well as the upper and lower connecting braces.

UPDATE: If its not obvious this video is pretty old now. I had just got
done getting the car back together. ( pulled the motor, and trans, rebuilt
the motor, put it back together. I do all my own work.) I didn't take the
time to put the shifter and console back together, because im more
concirend how the car drive's.... then looks.
The car was tuned after this video and picked up around 35HP. After that,
this video makes the car look SLOW.
putting a Vortech Supercharger on the
car now.... for some REAL power.
Went for a drive, and pissed off my girlfriend in the process. At the end
of the video I race a F250 diesel that was heavily modified.
