A first gen Camaro in any condition is a fine looking thing, so to have one presented in this condition is a worthy consideration.
A fine balance between keeping this classic to its original spec and putting slapped upgrades were needed. I think this is the ideal combinationfor a classic car which is to be driven and not stored as an investment.

‘ Lift the hood of this sweet first gen and you’ll find a big block 454 that’s been overbored to a whopping 468 cubic inches.
At the top of that monster mill, air flows through a familiar chrome cleaner to a 750cfm Quick Fuel Technology 4-barrel that’s aligned with a Mr. Horsepower pressure gauge, proven Earl’s fittings and an Edelbrock mechanical pump. A resulting air/fuel mixture makes its way from a Dart aluminum intake to aluminum Procomp Electronics heads, which hide 3/8-inch pushrods, Dart guide plates and Scorpion aluminum rocker arms under matte Dart valve covers. Once those heads flood the cylinders, an Accel HEI Super Coil distributor sequences fire through 8mm Taylor plug wires and Design Engineering titanium Protect-A-Boots.
That fire pushes 10.5 to 1 forged popup pistons, which spin in unison with a .610-lift hydraulic roller cam and forged steel crank. Resultant spent gases are jettisoned through stainless long-tube headers, which perfectly contrast the block’s bright Chevy Orange skin.’

‘This Camaro’s thoroughly upgraded M22 spins a McLeod clutch and flywheel opposite a Lakewood Safety Bellhousing. That gearbox twists an Inland Empire driveshaft that’s fitted with Spicer 1350 U-joints and quality, forged yokes. And that driveline twists a Moser 12-bolt rear end that’s fitted with Yukon axles, moderate, 3.55 gears and an Eaton posi-traction differential.
A complete suspension rebuild saw the addition of 2-inch drop spindles, adjustable Flaming River coil-overs, tubular control arms, an assortment of polyurethane bushings and a thick sway bar. That suspension turns thanks to Flaming River rack-and-pinion steering, which is juiced by a late-model GM pump and reservoir. At the corners of the car, power front disc and rear drum brakes provide serious handling prowess and first rate stopping ability. Exhaust flows from the aforementioned headers to large-diameter pipes that breathe through an H-shaped crossover and dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. Power hits the pavement via polished aluminum Cragars, which spin 215/55R17 Kumho Ecstas in front of 235/50R17 Kumho Ecstas. And the car’s clean floors feature a full array of finishing components that includes: poly transmission mounts, a Moser truss-style differential cover, stainless fluid lines, a Mr. Gasket fuel pump, a Mallory fuel filter and a stainless fuel tank.’
