Originally a rust-free 6-cylinder car, this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro restomod now bears SS badging along with new paint, trim, and glass as part of a restoration performed at the end of 2019. Now finished in Gunmetal Grey Metallic, this split bumper Camaro packs a modified 350 V8 and a 4-speed manual transmission carried over from a previous restoration. Many suspension and brake components have been upgraded and much of the interior has either been refurbished or replaced. This 1970 Camaro is being offered on consignment with a clean Florida title and a clean Carfax.
Cosmetically, this split bumper Camaro is brand new as of December 2019. The Gunmetal Grey Metallic paint is trimmed with modern script Camaro badges, a new grille, and SS emblems. New headlights, new tail lights, and new side markers were added along with new front and rear windshields and new stainless glass trim. This Camaro rides on fresh tires and new Ridler wheels measuring 18x9” at the front and 20x10” at the rear. Inside, this second-generation Camaro has been refreshed with new carpet, reconditioned seats, and a reproduction dashboard. Dakota Digital analog gauges were added consisting of a tachometer, pressure gauges, and GPS speedometer. A Pioneer head unit and Kicker speakers were added during a previous restoration. The digital odometer was adjusted to reflect the ~60,000 miles shown on the original cluster, believed to be accurate and original.
Under the hood, this 1970 Chevrolet Camaro restomod packs a non-original 5.7-liter 350 V8 and 4-speed manual transmission. Among the driveline modifications are a Holley carburetor, MSD ignition, headers and full dual exhaust, aluminum valve covers, and an auxiliary electric fan with a thermostatic switch. The seller suspects internal engine and rear end modifications are present based on this Camaro’s performance. The chassis benefits from upgraded front disc brakes and pads, upgraded springs and KYB shocks, 2” lowering spindles, subframe connectors, and polyurethane bushings throughout. New spark plugs were installed in December 2019.
