You know. there's just something about a car that thundered off Detroit's assembly lines. slugged it out at stop lights and finally ended up as an all-steel Christmas tree conqueror that inspires a cult-like following. And while some of us openly admit our tendency to be overly nostalgic. we'd certainly pick something like this killer Chevy Camaro over a 300 MPH. nitro-fueled Funny Car any day of the week. See. as awesome as those Funny Cars are. the core of their movement started when a few brave gearheads mixed racing components with street cars and. in addition to enjoying forehead-flattening acceleration. spawned a whole new segment of hot rodding. 'Pro Street'. which loosely translates to going fast and looking good doing it. eventually began to take off. And today. rebuilding an older. higher mileage classic into a custom-fabricated speed machine has become a form of automotive art. The beneficiary of a 3-year. no-holds-barred restoration. this sinister Camaro is a magazine featured award winner that was built to dominate the expo! Are you looking for sheer performance. an unbeatable showpiece or just some cool metal to own and enjoy? Forget spending five years and $200K on a ground-up project. just call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte and become the proud new owner of this incredible F1!
Admit it. when you see a mean. bowtie-branded pony car with a giant blower and giant rear tires. all is right with the world; at least for the five seconds the car takes to roar out of sight. And what better way to make a classic bowtie even more appealing than wrapping it in a stunning coat of high quality PPG pigment? This Camaro's solid body panels are straight steel pieces that display excellent fit and world-class finish. Its vivid paint is a brilliant coat of Candy Apple Red 2-stage that reflects a glossy. wet-look shine. That unbeatable combination is the product of a professional. 3-year build that was completed by New Kensington. Pennsylvania's Kustom Koncepts Hot Rods & Auto Restoration in the spring of 2003. And the result is one very well done pavement scorcher that still drops jaws and turns heads wherever it roams.
When it comes to purity of form. we can't really think of a better-looking car than the first generation Camaro. It's a simple and straightforward design that continues to age exceptionally well. especially in the company of its extroverted and exaggerated competitors. At the front of this super cool strip cruiser. a silver grille hangs Rally Sport-exclusive headlights above a smoothed and painted bumper and small. Rally Sport-exclusive parking lamps. At the top of that grille. a cut and molded hood leads the eye to clean glass that's framed in shaved mirrors. shaved drip rails and custom stainless trim. Below that hood. the car's profile presents a smooth. monochromatic appearance that's completely devoid of emblems. door handles. marker lamps and a fuel door. And at the back of that profile. painted tail lights hang between a body-matched spoiler. a second smoothed and painted bumper. a clean "SS" emblem and a custom valance that incorporates frenched reverse lamps at the sides of polished exhaust tips. That's it. The basic design of this Camaro's body is meant to be the focal point of your attention. You won't find any of the large jewelry or loud graphics that seem to be so common on most of today's Pro Street restorations. and that's certainly not a bad thing!
A one handed hoist of the car's lightweight hood reveals a tweaked. 427 cubic inch big block V8 which wraps roughly 900 horsepower and 850 lb. /ft. of torque in show-stopping bliss! At the top of that balanced and blueprinted mill. a red-detailed BDS air cleaner funnels wind into chrome Holley 750 carburetors that are serviced by a Barry Grant pump. a Marshall pressure gauge. a Barry Grant regulator a custom rail and braided Russell hoses. Below those carbs. a polished BDS 8-71 blower feeds ported and polished Merlin heads. which anchor Crane springs. titanium retainers and Manley valves beneath custom. color-keyed rocker covers. Below those heads. a steel GM crank turns Wiseco pistons and Eagle H-beam rods at the sides of a beefy Crane roller cam. Combustion is sparked by an MSD 6AL ignition system. which is hooked to an MSD Pro Billet distributor. an MSD Blaster 2 coil and MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a polished aluminum radiator. a big electric puller fan. polished fluid tubes and a high quality Meziere electric water pump. And spent gases travel through ceramic-coated Hedman Hedders. which bolt in proximity to a color-keyed Powermaster alternator and polished Powermaster starter. While this raucous mill's main mission is to go straight at a very high rate of speed. it still has a lot of impressive eyeball appeal. Great looking dress up items. such as a chrome hood latch. polished fluid lines and a full set of ARP fasteners. add show-worthy details. And flawless Candy Apple PPG. which perfectly matches the engine's smoothed block. highlights a smoothed firewall. stretched inner fenders and a capped core support.
Under this rock-solid panther you'll find a no-compromises drivetrain that perfectly complements over-restored floorpans and a long roster of serious speed equipment. Behind the big-bore engine. a smoothed GM Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed utilizes a reverse-pattern manual valve body and Total Cost Involved 3. 00 RPM stall converter to put the power to the pavement. Behind that transmission. a stalwart Ford 9-inch spins a limited-slip differential around Strange 31-spline axles and Richmond 4. 56 gears. Holding that tough transmission off the ground is a body-matched front half. which hangs narrowed and relocated Fat Man control arms at the sides of custom air bags and fresh Monroe shocks. Holding that narrowed rear end off the ground is a Chris Alston's Chassisworks back half. which makes good use of Aldan coil-overs. relocated shock mounts and massive wheel tubs. All that impressive hardware gravitates around a molded. boxed and smoothed frame that's been tied together. channeled one inch up front and channeled four inches out back. The drivetrain's momentum is countered by red. 4-piston Wilwoods. which clamp 12-inch rotors at all four corners. The engine's 3-inch Hedman Hedders flow into a 3-inch. ceramic-coated exhaust system that sends spent gases through an H-shaped crossover. custom billet clamps and modified SuperTrapp mufflers. Everything rolls on 15-inch Billet Specialties Talladegas. which spin 26x7. 50 Mickey Thompson Sportsmans in front of 31x18. 50 Mickey Thompson Sportsmans. And everything. from this Camaro's smoothed wheel wells to its beefy driveshaft hoop. is fully detailed and ready to show!
Tap the button for this cool F-Body's remote keyless entry and you'll find a clean and inviting interior that's a nice combination of quarter mile safety features and open road conveniences. During the restoration. a smoothed. 6-point roll bar was built around Allante-covered Fiero seats. Between those seats. a custom. sheetmetal console centers a Hurst Quarter Stick shifter between small power window switches and a bold "SS" emblem. At the front of that console. a custom dash hangs Auto Meter Pro-Comp gauges between a billet VIN plate and remote-controlled Alpine head unit. At the sides of that dash. custom. fiberglass door panels anchor billet handles. sculpted armrests and clean Crystal speakers inside thoughtfully smoothed jambs. Below those panels. clean floor mats and custom foot pedals lend the otherwise attractive interior a nice. finished look. And. opposite those mats. a billet-trimmed Allante headliner adds a little style and texture. In front of the driver. a stylish Billet Specialties steering wheel spins around a fixed column. And behind the passengers. a customupholstered trunk centers a custom fuel cell behind a JL Audio subwoofer and large amplifier.
