Feast your eyes on a Chevy Camaro restomod exuding refinement and class
While you won’t be popular at parties complaining that the grass was greener in the years long gone, the appeal of that viewpoint becomes crystal clear when you look at a car as fine as this 1971 Chevy Camaro. They just don’t make them like that anymore, do they?
Well, Missouri-based RestoMod Store does. The team took a half-a-century old car and completely restored it outside and inside. The body was resprayed in Metallic Blue with the side sills, the diffuser and the splitter offset in Matte Silver for added elegance. Staggered Boze Forged Clutch wheels made it into the arches.
The drivetrain and the chassis of the restomod were redone from the ground up using a Detroit Speed subframe, tubular control arms and a power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering mechanism. A 6.2-liter LS3 V8 slotted in under the hood, driven by a couple of Precision turbos and a host of other performance components. We don’t know any relevant numbers, but those six-piston Wilwood calipers at the front (and four-piston ones at the rear) make us believe there is no lack of thrust.
Rounding off the impressive project is a cabin wrapped in black natural leather, a Pioneer audio system connected to Hertz speakers, bucket seats in the front row, and a Vintage Air conditioner.
As finely built as this Camaro is, there is little surprise it went for $140,000 at an auction a couple of days ago.
