Karl's '69 RS Camaro
Some time ago we started a '69 Camaro project for a client. With big changes at work and being clear back on the east coast he decided the car project wasn't in the mix anymore and was stuck with the dilemma of selling his partially built '69 Camaro to the right person. Just so happens a local St. George resident Karl had a '68 Camaro he was building but had a bad itch for a '69 instead. He heard about the '69 here for sale and felt the direction change was just what he needed. The car stayed in our build shop and the project is now under way again. With plans to not only be of the highest show quality it's also intended to be street driven and designed to compete in open road races like the Silver State Classic and Texas Mile where cars are pushed to find out just how fast they can go.
Beginning as a previously "restored" Yenko clone it looked pretty nice, but that was just on the surface. According to disassembly and media blasting, a reality check showed it was pretty ugly underneath and was obvious a complete rebuild was in order. After replacing both rear 1/4 panels, doors, fenders, hood, complete floor pan and firewall work could continue with all the upgrades. Follow along as we completely transform this into an ExtReme Pro Touring street and track machine!.
After all the body panels were smoothed to perfection primer was laid down and the block sanding began. When Robert was finally satisfied with his work he sprayed perfection in the form of Ford Raptor charcoal metallic gray. Right out of the gun it looked great for most any build but wet sanding and buffing created the shine this car deserves.
Not only with this '69 Camaro look great on the outside, It'll look awesome inside too. Custom door panels, dash, center console, roll cage, and seat upholstery are all in the mix!
With 427 inches and just over 750 hp @ 8,000 rpms nestled between the rails of a Speedtech ExtReme subframe equipped with our street and race optimized proprietary suspension, Sweet race inspired rack and pinion steering, Ron Sutton "Secret Sauce" valved coilover shocks and huge Baer brakes this ride will be just plain unruly!
