INSANE CUSTOM BUILD, SUPERCHARGED 540 V8, 990 HP, 2 QUICKFUEL 4BBLS, 4-DISCS, A+
Nobody messes with a car like this. Nobody. This 1968 Camaro Pro-Street is the ultimate expression of high-performance, with race-grade equipment and show car looks. But don't make the mistake of thinking this is some thrashed race car, because all it has ever done is drive to the show field and back, and we can't rightly say how fast it really is, because nobody knows... Yet.
This car has it going ON! Dig the stance, the radiused rear wheel arches, and the stunningly sophisticated Sequoia Green paint, which is this car's original color. There aren't many cars that are more perfectly proportioned than the early Camaro, and the Pro-Street treatment on this one only enhances what is already a slam-dunk design. Add a giant engine hanging out of the hood, blacked-out SS grille, and a stock ducktail spoiler and it has an OEM performance look, yet this brute will definitely stand out, no worries there. All the sheetmetal is original to the car and hasn't been radically modified, although a few behind-the-scenes changes were definitely required to get those large-by-huge meats under the rear fenders. The paint is show quality throughout and we love the simple stripe around the nose, as if being subtle was something this car could have achieved. Chrome bumpers fore and aft add some contrast, with dark-tinted windows to complete the hard-case look.
If this were a full race piece, there'd be a bare-bones interior with a single bucket. But in Pro-Street, full interiors are part of the package. Sure, the back seat is gone, filled with fully upholstered wheel tubs, but with 990 horsepower on tap, it's probably a good idea. High-back buckets were upholstered in black and gray leather, there are beautiful carpets on the floor, and the custom door panels were created to match. The original dashboard has been refinished, too, and now carries beautiful Classic Instruments gauges in the original pods ahead of the driver. But the crossover to race spec doesn't mean you're roughing it, because there's plenty of sound-deadening material inside, plus a decent-sounding Alpine stereo system. And oh, I almost forgot: ice cold A/C is part of the deal, too. The B&M shifter manages a built TH400 3-speed automatic transmission, and a small diameter steering wheel fits the look. In back, the trunk is pretty much full of wheel tubs, a fuel cell, and a battery, and the workmanship is impressive with body-colored paint on the fuel cell and full carpets.
You'll get the picture when you open the hood and find a thundering 540 cubic inch big block that grunts out a dyno-proven 990 horsepower thanks to the giant 8-71 supercharger perched up top. Finished in more polished aluminum bits than you'll find at a Goodguys show, it's a street-legal piece that thinks it was built for the track. There's a pair of QuickFuel 4-barrel carbs on top, long-tube Hooker headers, and an MSD ignition in addition to all the stout goodies inside. The reinforced chassis carries a Detroit Speed coil-over front suspension a 4-link that carries a narrowed Fab9 rear end with 3.08 gears inside, so nobody can accuse this of being a race-only piece. Wilwood disc brakes live at all four corners and the full exhaust system sounds simply spectacular. Rolling stock consists of trick aluminum wheels with 26x6.00-15 radials up front and 31x18x15 Mickey Thompson meats out back.
With less than 600 miles on the build, this predatory Camaro has yet to realize its potential and it remains show-quality throughout. Are you man enough for it? Call today!
