1969 Camaro RS Restomod - Nov 2016

1969 Camaro RS Restomod

 

This camaro came in complete, not running, but mostly all there.  The plan is to fix the rust, upgrade the suspension, install an LS1 and 6-speed manual trans, 12-bolt rearend, updated wiring and interior, paint it up nice and hit the streets.

Here's how it came in...

Teardown time...

First step is to cut out and replace the entire floorpan, then the trunk pan, then both quarter panels, the tail panel, and rear wheel wells (which are being widened 3 inches for serious tires)...

Of course the top had to come off, then the dash top, then the dutchman panel - rust everywhere...

 

Front subframe was powder coated, then stuffed with an LS1 and 5-speed trans...then slid in next to a smoothed firewall..

The 12-bolt was narrowed to allow the nice, wide tires to fit, then attached to a custom triangulated 4-link, using Ride-Tech coil overs for support...

Now sitting nice and tucked, this ride is ready to go to the body shop for paint...  it's out of our hands for now, but when its ready for plumbing and wiring you'll get to see more.  Stay tuned...
