Full Description: Yes, this is the cover car for the July 2011 Camaro Performers Magazine. Yes this was a Feature Car for the 2010 Sema Show in Las Vegas, yes this car attended only one National Good Guys event and won the coveted Builders Choice Award presented by Art and Craig Morrison. And yes this car could be yours at a fraction of the price it would cost to build.
Up for sale is one of, if not the finest, 2nd generation Camaro on the planet today. This is a modern pro-touring car wearing classic Camaro sheet metal. Over 1800 hours were spent building this car. Look closely and you will see why. The list of details is near endless, but worth every second of your time.
The gorgeous paint scheme was designed by Jason Rushforth and employs Chevrolet Victory Red with very detailed white and black off-setting stripes. Look closer the side markers have been shaved, bumpers have been tucked in front and rear, the trunk now has a flat floor, the gas tank has been raised, and the car received a clean 2 inch mini-tub. Each body gap has been hand fit to achieve near perfection. The fire wall has been smoothed, a carbon fiber close out panel has been added up front and Ring Brothers Billet hood hinges do a great job of holding up the hood. While on the rotisserie the under carriage was generously treated with Polyurea bedliner.
The heart of this pro touring masterpiece is a 500 + HP super charged all aluminum LS1 mated to a Tremec T-56 6-speed transmission. Look closely and you will see some subtle details. The ignition coils have been relocated under the dash and the plug wires are hidden to. The vintage air conditioning compressor and lines are almost unseen. The Magnusson Supercharger was treated to countless hours of machine and fabrication time to fit under the OEM steel hood. To give it the right attitude the Camaro was delivered to Trifecta Performance and received a full custom tune. It has a clean crisp idle, and goes into a rage when you stab the go pedal and still achieves 22+ MPG.
A true pro touring car has to handle like one and this car does. This 1972 Camaro has a custom fabricated Art Morrison sub-frame that sports C-6 Corvette suspension with matching 14 inch disc brakes up front and 13 inch disc brakes in back. The sub frame also showcases a Speedway Engineering Nascar splined swaybar, AGR quick ratio rack and pinion power steering, and Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks. Out back a custom designed triangulated 4-bar suspension and Strange Engineering adjustable coil-over shocks keep the tires stuck to the pavement. The rear-end is a standout piece of its own. It is a Speedway Engineering Quickchange with an aluminum center section. The look is amazing and gear choices are near endless. Currently it houses REM polished gear set with a 4:12 final ratio. 1st gear pulls very hard and 6th gear cruises at a comfortable 1800 RPM at a 70 MPH.
There was a huge effort to make this Camaro stand apart from the rest. Notice that nothing hangs below the pinch welds yet the body tucks a custom set of “one off” Rushforth designed 19” and 20” wheels. The car has a 3” mandrel bent exhaust that goes over the rear end and cleanly exits out the back of the car. The subframe has been built to tuck up above the pinch welds and interlock with the custom frame rails. The factory gas tank is hidden while leaving the trunk large and useable.
The interior has a sporty theme and is constructed of rich supple leather. The dash is leather wrapped and matched to the custom LeCarra Billet steering wheel, leather door panel and comfortable race inspired seats. The 4 point harnesses have been integrated into the seats to hold you securely in place while testing the cars ability. While driving you will enjoy the digital Racepack dash which offers 22 different inputs and keeps you clearly updated on the cars vitals. To help keep a close eye on the gauges, custom cast-tinted Auto City Glass was installed to keep the sun out. On those hot days you can crank up the vintage air conditioning (Magnum IV) system. And when the rain comes a Detroit Speed Select-a-Speed wiper motor will keep the windshield dry.
With less than 1300 miles on the odometer and the completion date of July 2010 the car is like new. It truly is a beauty to look at and a joy to drive. The best part is that it is still fresh and ready to show. If you enjoy winning car shows the car will do just that. However, if you like the look of a classic car with driving qualities of a new car this is the one for you. It was designed and built to be driven and enjoyed. You can drive it anywhere, anytime and the worst issue you will encounter is that everyone wants to talk to you about the car. Not a bad problem to have.
This truly is an amazing car and it will be hard to see it go but it needs to be enjoyed.
Will trade for a 2012 Camaro ZL1 + cash.
