1968 Chevrolet Camaro Pro Touring Build at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This Pro-Touring 1968 Chevrolet Camaro came to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop wearing fresh paint, but the owner wanted some performance upgrades to match. The task is to install a supercharged LSA engine and a Tremec 6060 6-speed manual transmission, all without hurting the new paint. The V8 crew is also adding all the needed cooling, fuel, and electrical system upgrades required to make it all sing.

Cooling is handled by a C&R Radiator and coolers, and the cabin is cooled by Vintage Air. Under the car lives a full Ridetech coil-over suspension system, with hydraulically boosted Wilwood brakes. Our team is building a full mandrel-bent, custom-fit exhaust system for the car.

Tasks included notching the subframe to fit the LSA and the factory accessory drive system, and fabricating a custom smooth firewall and hydraulic clutch master cylinder mount, fabricating a and custom air intake system. Ringbrothers billet hood hinges support the modified hood, which was re-structured to clear the supercharger housing.

We’ll be posting update blogs along the way as we complete this Pro-Touring 1968 Camaro!
