The Chevrolet Camaro might just be one of the coolest cars ever created.

That unique combination of approachability and appeal has significantly contributed to the classic's continued rise in popularity. And builds like this clean F2 resto-mod, with its modern drivetrain and substantially improved suspension, are always hot sellers here at Custom Classics. Are you one of the many enthusiasts tirelessly searching for a captivating pony car? Don't miss your chance to claim this awesome Rally Sport Camaro.
Recently built into a lean, mean pavement-pounding machine, this spectacular Chevy wears a beautiful restoration that features many thoughtful upgrades which modernize both performance and appeal. The car's transformation started when its panels were thoroughly stripped and then straightened. When that work was complete, those panels were aligned to better-than-factory fit. Hugger Orange base was accented with White Rally Stripes, sealed in a thick coat of clear and buffed to a deep shine. And today, this RS rolls down the road as one eye-catching classic that mixes major street presence with lethal curb appeal!
When it comes to '70s metal and body modification, it's best to trust Detroit's keen eye for clean lines. Too many modern bits can make a build look disjointed, and too much customization just makes everything look tacky. Thankfully, the restorers did an excellent job of maintaining this Camaro's classy form. At the front of the car, a broad grille hangs a correct RS grill opening with Nice bright chrome Rally Sport bumpers and above that grille, an ornate header emblem fronts a beautiful factory hood, which also founds the factory-tint glass behind polished frames and hidden wipers. At the sides of that glass, a sculpted profile founds factory door handles and color-keyed mirrors above fresh marker lamps and two "Rally Sport" emblems. Opening the doors you'll find new weather seals and fresh door sill plates for the crisp clean feel. And at the back of the car, a third bright chrome bumper reflects a chrome trunk lock, Rally Sport taillights, and a factory deck spoiler.
Under that shiny hood, you'll find all 5.7 liters of the GM LS1 V/8 transplant that distills effortless power into a bounty of tire-shredding torque! At the front of the engine, a GM serpentine drive spins a rebuilt alternator opposite a modern AC compressor. At the top of the engine, a proven LS1 throttle body bridges the gap between an LS1 intake and monochromatic cold air components. Sparks are fired through pliable AC Delco plug wires, which feed off the ECM. A quality Comp cam pushes spent gases through exhaust manifolds. And cooling comes courtesy of a beefy aluminum radiator that's fitted with large SPAL puller fans. Aesthetically, both the Jet Black mill and its assortment of clean accessories seem right at home inside their smooth, Hugger Orange frame. And details, like black fluid lines, trick billet fender bars, a Chrome master cylinder, and Corvette fuel rail covers, ensure this Chevy has the looks to match its performance.
Speaking of looks, take a look under this fully sorted classic and you'll find a professionally restored chassis that's clean and ready to roll. Behind the smooth small block, a proven 6-speed trans that twists torque to a tough 10-bolt axle that's fitted with big, 3.73 gears and a posi-traction differential. Beneath that solid driveline, a massaged suspension cages new Global West tubular control arms between beefy sway bars. Those hefty control arms turn effortlessly thanks to modern power steering. At the corners of the car, power-assisted calipers clamp drilled and slotted rotors. Power meets the pavement through attractive aftermarket U.S. Mag wheels, which spin 235/55R17 tires in the rear and up in the front 225/50R17's. And items like new fluid lines, sturdy subframe connectors and new fuel tank show this Camaro was built to be driven!
Inside this Chevy, you'll find a timeless, but stylish Black interior, one of the coolest interiors to ever roll off a GM assembly line. Correct GM buckets wear tight new seat covers. In front of those seats, a color-keyed dash hangs Dakota Digital VHX telemetry above Vintage Air conditioning and modern Sony audio. Beneath that dash, fade-free carpet floats nice black Good year floor mats between a factory console, an aftermarket B&M shifter, and billet foot pedals. At the sides of that carpet, standard door panels frame correct chrome hardware. In front of the driver, a satin-spoked steering wheel laps a tilting column. Pop the trunk open, and you'll find a fully restored trunk with the correct floor mat.
