Ironworks Builds Another Great SEMA Show Stopper!
This beautiful "Fairway '67" Camaro built by Ironworks Speed and Kustom had two things in mind, amazing looks without overdoing it and some serious reliable performance. Using a drivetrain direct from GM and rolling on a Speedtech ExtReme complete suspension this car drew the crowd at the recent SEMA Show 2017. Below are some photos and words The Block magazine used to describe this amazing machine. Congrats to Rodger and the crew of Ironworks on another great build!

"Located in the Mobil 1 booth adjacent to the Chevrolet Performance booth here at the 2017 SEMA Show is the “Fairway ‘67”. It’s being touted as the “first LT4 powered ‘67 Camaro,” so you guys are seeing history in the making. The customer of this build loves the ‘67 model and tries to build new cars around new crate engines. The LT4 pumps out an equivalent 650 lb.-ft. of toque."
..."As for the chassis, the car was built to be a pro-tourer, so it sports the finest accoutrement. Underneath are Speedtech Performance suspension bits including an Extreme subframe and rear Torque Arm setup with RideTech single adjustable shocks with the Ron Sutton “Secret Sauce” valving. There’s a Wilwood disc brake setup all around peering from behind 19x11” and 19x12.5” Forgeline wheels."
..."Sure, from the outside, the car is beautifully simple, but inside, it took an equal amount of time, with a keener eye to detail, to simplify a classic car’s interior. We love the houndstooth inlay in the sport bucket seats, again paying homage to the original f-body. The focus of the interior is something a lot of builders may aim for, but can’t quite pull off. Lee has aced the interior in spades, with subtle touches that keep your eyes moving about without being gaudy. There is no carpeting, the inside door pulls are simple yet elegant leather straps and we can only imagine what it’s like to buckle in to those deep bucket seats, throw the quick release steering wheel on, fire up the LT4 and hit the local autocross or track knowing you have a reliable and powerful drivetrain underneath you.
Camaro celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, but it’s 2017, and the Camaro debuted for model year 1967, so we feel this car is a great commemorative piece since it features a ‘67 body with 2017 power. The guys at ISK have done another phenomenal job here at the SEMA show. "
