1970 Chevrolet Camaro by Restomod Store
Way back in in 2004, the 1970 Chevrolet Camaro in front of you cost $400; as you can imagine, it looked nothing like this, with the Z28 having then brought to Missouri where the Restomod Store and craftsman Michael Mclin working their magic on transforming this classic muscle-car into a real gem. Considering it all started off from a 1970 F-body that had no engine or transmission, things have really come a long way. Looks stunning, doesn’t it?
Looking like a clean Pro Touring example, the 1970 Camaro Z28 packs a six-speed overdrive transmission sends all the power from the engine to the rear axle; by the way, we’re talking about a 406 ci 1973 small-block, developing 535 hp and 487 lb-ft of torque
On a technical level, the front shows off Hotchkis spindles, tubular control arms, and antisway bar work with Competition Engineering adjustable coil over dampers. A Hotchkis rack-and-pinion steering unit takes you around the bends, while Hotchkis leaves, Comp Engineering adjustable dampers, and Slide-A-Link traction bars handle things at the back.
The braking system includes a Brembo 13-inch plate and four-piston caliper at each of the four wheels, something of a necessary step considering the upgraded engine: Brodix Track 1 cylinder heads and twin four-barrels on an Edelbrock intake manifold – let’s not forget about the Villers Turbo 350 transmission and Gear Vendors planetary gearbox.
The PPG Super Sonic Blue seems to be the ideal shade to showcase this refreshed classic, complemented by Restomod headlights, taillights with Fesler lenses and in-house built front and rear bumpers, not to mention side view mirrors. On the inside, the owner went for a leather Procar seat, a Simpson five-point harness, custom door panels featuring carbon fiber and leather, and more. For instance, let’s mention the Clayton Machine pedals, Auto Meter Ultra-Lite dials, and B&M shifter. Had enough? I’m sure you haven’t; I’m still dreaming about the growls this thing makes when you give it all she’s got!
