We have to say as car restorations go this 1967 Camaro is a success. It was restored by Florida based Ultimate Auto for a private client who pith-forked out $420,000 dollars for a new lick-o-paint. Actually Ultimate Auto did a comprehensive restoration. And they made a great success of it.
They widened the rear fenders to fit those humongous custom 20-inch/21-inch tyres. The roof is made from carbon fibre and the front bonnet/hood is also custom spec.
A new front and rear bumper and side-skirts complete the exterior detailing which looks as though it rolled off the production line tomorrow, not yesteryears.
Underneath the external show is a 6.2-litre V8 supercharged Chevy LS9 engine which is good for 638bhp and over 800Nm of torque.
The suspension has been completely overhauled and that bhp power requires equally strong stopping power which comes courtesy of Baer 4-wheel disc brakes.
The interior has been completely overhauled with custom built panels merging with a 5th gen Camaro interior. We would have preferred a retro vibe… just sayin.
Everything is handbuilt and this is why it originally cost the owner £420,000 dollars. Depreciation means he has lost a whopping £120,ooo in 4 years, the build was commissioned in 2013.
But this Camaro is more like a work of art as much as it is a vanity project so it should find a buyer, it’s currently being listed on eBay.
