This cool yellow 1968 Oldsmobile 442 looks great, but the owner wanted better handling, braking, and comfort, while adding more reliable power and a smoother shifting transmission to the car without sacrificing the classic look. The solution is the installation of at Roadster Shop chassis and an LS3 V8, hooked to a Tremec TKX 5-speed manual transmission. Follow along as we make the upgrades!
This black 1969 Chevrolet Camaro is in for some big upgrades at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop, including a Chevrolet Performance supercharged LT5 direct-injected V8 engine! The 775 HP LT5 will be backed by a 10-speed automatic transmission, so it’s sure to be firmly planted in the engine’s powerband all the time. It’s going to be a whole new experience in a muscle car!
