1978 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod Additional Info:

Chevy's second generation Camaros sure were a sharp looking, capable bunch - angular and low-slung, they added some welcome technological advances to their already immensely popular predecessors and attracted a legion of fans of their own. Unfortunately, as the '70s progressed, they were forced to yield to increasingly more stringent emission controls that sapped quite a bit of their responsiveness under throttle. Consider that challenge surmounted in this 1978 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod - it's carrying an enhanced monster of a...rumbling big block under its hood that willingly supplies all the power you could want to go along with its magnetic good looks. With its matte gray exterior ornamented with a pair of stripes running the lengths of the hood, roof and deck lid, this is a very sharp Camaro. It's the result of a precisely fitted full body wrap that envelopes its aerodynamic second-generation form to present a very finished looking appearance. Up front, the cowl hood sports a 3" rise and has a very symmetrical, well-sculpted look, while just below the black front grille and headlight buckets contrast nicely with the rest of the exterior and tie in perfectly with the wheels below. The stance is just right - close to the ground for a low center of gravity and yet with still plenty of ground clearance to make everyday driving conditions a non-concern. The body alignment is in good order - Camaros of this vintage feature contours that run most of their body length and the ones on display here are impressively consistent as they transition from fender to door to rear quarter panel. The interior provides a nice vantage point from which to take full advantage of this classic Chevy's abilities. The front bucket seats carry plenty of padding for comfort and only show a little bit of wear on their black vinyl surfaces as they straddle the center console and the carpeting lining the floor looks like it was recently installed. The dash area is in good order - you'll find no cracks on the pad on top and the gauges inside the instrument cluster are clear and readable. An AM/FM/CD stereo with both iPod and Bluetooth connectivity has been seamlessly installed in the center to provide plenty of audio options. Seemingly unending power comes from the 468 cubic inch V8 standing by underneath the cowl hood. It's a freshly built powerplant and was only fired up for the first time just over a half year ago, so it's just coming into its own. The entire bottom end of the engine is forged for added durability under high pressure situations, a roller cam and rockers were added for maximum operating efficiency and an Edelbrock intake and Holley 4-barrel take their place just under the sharp matte black air cleaner. Fire up the engine and tap on the accelerator and you'll have no doubt there's some serious power at your disposal and the exhaust note sent through the Hooker headers leading to a pair of Thrush mufflers will put a smile on the face of any performance car enthusiast. An aluminum radiator with dual 10" fans sits up front to keep operating temperatures in check and an MSD ignition joins the mix to maximize spark. The 4-speed Muncie M22 manual transmission provides just the "hands on" driving experience a well-equipped street machine like this deserves, while power brakes and power steering make stopping and navigating a breeze. This killer looking Chevy rolls on a set of show stopping 18" Boss 338 wheels wrapped with Pirelli tires. A timelessly appealing second-generation Camaro appearance combines with outstanding power to make this 1978 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod a force to be reckoned with. Call today!
