Restomods are all the rage right now. Cars that have just made the leap to classic cars, but are often not yet seen as true classic cars, are increasingly being given extensive tuning after their restoration. This ranges from rims, chassis and film to complete conversions with a modern engine and contemporary interior, which often also offers the latest comfort features to make driving an oldie as comfortable as possible. American oldies from the 1960s and 1970s are particularly popular when it comes to this type of automotive restoration. Such vehicles are of course "real“Oldtimers and extremely popular and sought after. The model that we want to present to you in this report is a Restomod-Camaro (VIN: 124871L505480) from 1971, which is equipped with an LS9-V8 with a displacement of 6,2 liters, which is normally used in the Corvette ZR1, Is provided.

The body of the Camaro is unique

Jason Pecikonis of Timeless Kustoms, who built this Camaro, says the model doesn't have a proper chassis, but a chrome-molybdenum cage, which reduces the weight to just under 1.600 kg. This cage is like an aluminum platform, which saves a lot of weight compared to a conventional chassis. In addition, the front suspension of the Corvette C6 is installed, and Brembo brakes have been installed to keep the sheer power in check. In addition, Pecikonis says that 90 percent of all body parts of the Restomod Camaro are handmade, but were manufactured so precisely that you can't see that the Chevy is over 90 percent self-made. The front is made from a single piece of metal, and the door handles on the Corvette C7 allow easy entry and exit. The car also rolls on 20-inch alloy wheels, which can also be found on a Corvette C7 as standard. The optical highlight, however, is the carbon fiber diffuser, which comes from a Ferrari F430 Scuderia, and is attached to the rear. This diffuser houses a centrally located, trapezoidal exhaust pipe that is so large that small pets could get lost if a grille were not installed in front of it, and the rear bumper and rear spoiler have also been modified. Finally, the vehicle was painted in an anthracite tone, which actually comes from the BMW color range.

the interior has also been significantly modernized

In the course of the restoration and rebuilding, a lot of work was done on the interior. So the 1971 Camaro got the door panels of the current Camaro and a completely redesigned cockpit. Sports seats from Brew with leather cover and integrated harness belts as well as a modern high-end multimedia system.

an 9-liter LS8-V6,2 serves as the engine

This restomod monster is powered by a 6,2 liter V8 gasoline engine with supercharger, and delivers a breathtaking 600 HP on the rear wheels, which should correspond to a good 680 HP engine power. The sound is absolutely infernal, and the driving performance is certainly out of this world, considering that it was originally a 1971 Camaro. We don't have exact mileage, but the bullet on the quarter mile should blow off some modern super sports cars. Only the also not unknown 1.000 hp 1965 Ford Mustang from Timeless Kustoms there is still a number stronger.
