The Camaro’s legacy of universal appeal has given fans and aficionados the parts and inspiration to create many unique and outrageous hot rods. Take this award-winning pro-tourer for example. Funneling 500 horses of small block fury through a modern automatic transmission, this tastefully modified Chevy turns a traditionally appealing platform into an off-the-charts super star!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Professionally restored by Harbor Auto Restorations of Rockledge, Florida, this Camaro combines the blue-collar brawn of Motor City muscle with the world-class swagger of SoCal style. Unlike less sophisticated metal, which wears simple shades of traditional pigment, this trick F-Body sports glossy House Of Kolor Tangelo Pearl that manifests as gold-tinged orange. At the front of that glow, a customized grille hangs trick, dual-mode headlights above a tucked bumper and requisite D80 chin spoiler. At the top of that grille, a shaved header panel fronts a familiar Cowl Induction Hood, which reflects a filled cowl and modern, stainless-trimmed glass. At the sides of that glass, trick mirrors cap a sculpted profile, which plants traditional door handles between filled marker lamps. And at the back of the car, a seamless window filler flows in to a shaved decklid, which shades billet taillights, a billet fuel filler, a seamless roll pan and a second tucked bumper.

ENGINE

Toss the hand-fabricated hood and you’ll find 355 cubic inches of Chevrolet small block that twists a solid 500 horsepower into 460 lb./ft. of tire melting torque. At the top of that balanced and blueprinted mill, bright Inglese stacks drop wind in to polished Edelbrock heads. Behind those heads, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor bounces spark through loomed Taylor Spiro Pro plug wires. Beneath those wires, coated shorty headers make quick work of spent gases. Between those tubes, a Comp hydraulic roller cam bumps Comp hydraulic roller lifters. At the front of that cam, Billet Specialties Tru Trac components spin a polished water pump between a polished Powermaster alternator and a coated AC compressor. And in front of those ancillaries, a color-keyed radiator spans a polished cap, a body-matched support cover and two electric puller fans. Speaking of body-matched, the body-matched engine bay is very pleasing, mixing a smooth firewall and polished Fesler hood supports with Fesler fender bars and House Of Kolor block skin. And details, like braided fluid lines, a Wilwood master cylinder, an Aeromotive pressure gauge, and polished and dressed valve covers, are well planned and well executed.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Behind the thundering powerplant, a smooth 700R4 4-speed twists torque to a polished Currie 9-inch. That road-ready drivetrain rides a lightly modified suspension, which follows modern coil-over-shocks with Heidts tubular control arms and massaged leaf springs. That chassis rests thanks to polished calipers, which utilize braided Earl’s lines to clamp a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. Power-assisted steering, finished with an AGR quick-ratio gearbox, greatly improves drivability. Spent gases escape through 2.5-inch pipes, which trace dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. And at the corners, Billet Specialties Bonneville Gs twist 205/50R17 Goodyear Eagle RS-As in front of 275/45R20 Goodyear Eagle GTIIs.

INTERIOR

Installed by Steve Holcomb of Knoxville’s Pro Auto Custom Interiors, this neo F1’s comfortable cockpit is a masterful blend of both form and function. Traditional bench and bucket seats, the latter sourced from Nissan, sport Autumn Brown leather under rivet accents. Between those thrones, a custom, full-length console balances a short Lokar shifter in front of hidden Sony audio. At the front of that console, a custom dash frames Classic Instruments All American telemetry above Vintage Air climate control. And in front of the driver, a polished and half-wrapped steering wheel laps a tilting Ididit column.
