Classic Car Overview
Now for sale in our Houston showroom is this nasty Pro Street-style 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 tribute. Between the super-slick PPG 2006 Corvette Z06 LeMans Blue paint with its gloss black stripes, and the massive big block engine, this frame-off restored car is sure to make your heart beat fast! Under the hood of this beast is a stout 468 CID V8 engine (built by Dinos Racing Engines), based on a .030 over-bored 427 block, which is equipped with a Callies crank and forged Mahle 10.5:1 pistons. A set of ceramic coated Hooker headers funnel the spent fossils into a massive 3-inch stainless steel dual Magnaflow exhaust with huge polished stainless megaphones on its side exits. Fire it up, and it crackles and pops like a race car; but under normal driving, the sound is just right. Nail the gas, though, and youll think youre in a Nascar racer - which, in part, you are: the roll cage is a Nascar cage. The big 468s power is sent to the rear end via a built reverse manual valve body 700R4 automatic transmission, controlled by a Hurst ratchet shifter. A stout Ford 9 rear houses a set of 3.73:1 gears, which makes this a wicked Camaro suitable for both street and strip. The 3rd-member is equipped with a 4-link setup, complete with adjustable coil-overs, providing for near infinite adjustability to get the power down most effectively. Up front, adjustable coil-over shocks keep the Global West tubular upper and lower control arms properly damped, enhancing the handling. If one looks closely, theyll notice that nearly everything underneath has been powder coated in a mottled gray finish, as have been the inner fenders in the engine bay, the core support for the radiator, and the tops of the valve covers...they all match and look great! When it comes time to slow down, the driver will appreciate the four-piston SSBC Force10 brake calipers and drilled and slotted rotors up front; along with the four-piston Wilwood calipers and rotors out back. Theres even an adjustable brake proportioning valve, enabling the pilot to dial in the brake bias to their preference. Weld Racing aluminum wheels are at all 4 corners, shod by 165/80R-15 skinnies up front, and massive 315/60R-15 Mickey Thompson ET Drag Radials out back, which also fit nicely in the tubbed rear, and give it a real Pro stance. Inside, the custom gray and black two-tone interior is done in a durable burlap cloth and features custom Z28 embroidered emblems in both the head rests and the rear parcel area. RCI 5-point racing harnesses keep driver and passenger securely tucked into their places, and a complete set of AutoMeter ProComp gauges, housed in a carbon fiber-look dash, help keep the driver informed of critical engine stats. Theres even a carbon fiber NOS bottle - which is there for show and is ready to be plumbed in should its new owner need a little extra top-end punch. Additional features and options on the Pro Street-style 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 tribute for sale include Aluminum Alloy Wheels, Cloth Interior, Power Steering, Radial Tires, and Seat Belts.
