This 1967 Camaro is one of those cars where you can see the money before you even get close. With a show-stopping paint joband#44; a gorgeous stock-style interiorand#44; and lots of muscleand#44; this pro-built cruiser looks like every bit of the massive build cost was money well spent.<br /> <br /> You can always spot the great ones because they seem to glow compared to the cars around them. We cant say specifically what sets them apartand#44; but cars like this that have been taken down to bare metal and rebuilt from there on up seem to just stand outand#44; as if everything were just a little more exactingand#44; the finish is just a little deeperand#44; the chrome a little bit shinier. At any rateand#44; the spectacular Nantucket Blue paint on this car is simply stunning; a beautiful silvery-blue that looks especially attractive when the light highlights the metallic in the finish. A simple production-style hood with inserts and no spoilers highlight the traditional Camaro look and they didnt seem to want to hide any of that gorgeous paint under stripesand#44; and thats the right choice. This is a true RS/SSand#44; so they kept the SS grille and hidden headlights for a very sleek look. Factory-issue badges and emblems were installed as neededand#44; so its very correct. The bumpers and much of the stainless trim is newand#44; so that stuff sparklesand#44; including the Bowtie mirrors and the cool single-element taillights.<br /> <br /> The bucket seat interior looks pretty stock at first glanceand#44; offering black Strato buckets and factory door panels for a classic look that nobody will ever complain about. Black carpets and a matching dash pad tie highlight the monochromatic lookand#44; and theres a factory center console with a trick shifter for the Tremec 6-speed manual transmission. The original dials are still in placeand#44; joined by a set of auxiliary dials down on the console that look suitably vintage. Theres a modern air-conditioning system in place that uses the dashs original eyeball vents and controlsand#44; but the factory radio is goneand#44; replaced by an AM/FM/CD head unit and speakers creatively stashed throughout the interior. Againand#44; the interior is the kind of place that looks pretty stock at first glanceand#44; but somehow its a lot nicer than other Camaros like itand#44; and its the detailing that makes this one shine. Even the trunk features its own custom carpet set and a removable panel for access behind the back seat.<br /> <br /> They didnt mess around when it came time for horsepowerand#44; either. Thats a 480 horsepower LS3 crate motor from GM Performance Parts. Tasteful use of body-colored paint and polished aluminum gives it some flashand#44; but the overall vibeand#44; like the rest of the carand#44; is OEM with a show-quality twist. A big aluminum radiatorand#44; custom intake tubeand#44; those beautiful A/C linesand#44; and long-tube headers all make it mechanically sound and a ton of fun to drive. Underneathand#44; the custom TCI tubular subframe was powdercoated silverand#44; along with the trick A-arm front suspension with rack-and-pinion steering. Out backand#44; theres a matching TCI track arm suspension with coil-oversand#44; and the 6-speed feeds a rugged 9-inch rear end with a 3.89 Posi gearset insideand#44; so its up for whatever fun you want to have. There are also Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes to keep everything under control. A custom 2.5 inch stainless exhaust with Borla mufflers give it that awesome sound you like and virtually everything under the car is brand new. See what I mean about a pretty big bill to build this car? Even the attractive Torque Thrust wheels are ideally suited to the car and wear 215/45/17 front and 255/45/17 rear tires that are just the right size.<br /> <br /> Theres a build book includedand#44; but you can tell from the pictures that this was a high-dollar build. Incredibly clean and slickand#44; this Camaro stands out in a very crowded
