We are all very excited here at V8TV and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, as we've received the high honor of being chosen to restore the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro belonging to COMP Cams! They've had the car for many years, and 2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of COMP Cams, so they wanted the car freshened up for the milestone year. We'll be documenting the restoration of the car along the way, both in photos and video.
Plans for the car include a FAST EFI equipped LS engine mated to a TCI 6X 6-speed automatic transmission, a Heidt's suspension system, updated wheels, tires, and brakes, and a fresh paint job... among many other details.
Our crew is ready to make it happen, and we're proud to work with one of the industry icons to bring this significant car up-to-date. Follow along in the a photo gallery, videos, and a build thread on this slick '69!
This 1964 Ford Galaxie came to us for some maintenance, and after a little front end damage, it turned into a complete repaint! It is powered by a 460+ inch 428 fed by dual quad carburators, and shifts with a 4-speed manual. It's a very cool car. You can follow the build in the photo gallery!
The V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew wishes to thank Hot Rod Magazine for including our shop in their 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour coverage! The 2015 Tour rolled past our shop on June 9, and we all had a great time seeing the cars and helping out a few fellow Hot Rodders in need. The video below tells the story of the day the Power Tour came to town!
