1969 cam zr9 2021 04 10.0002

A rare moment when the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro “ZR9” is standing still and posing for a glamour shot!   This pro-touring Camaro was a big project, with an all-new body and a MAST Motorsports 840 HP RHS 427 topped with an LS9 supercharger.   It features a full custom leather and carbon fiber interior, Detroit Speed suspension, Forgeline wheels, Magnaflow Exhaust, Baer Brakes, a Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed, and a lot more…   but the Jetstream Blue color is one of the highlights.    We were honored to build the car at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop, and the owner has had it over 167 MPH on an open road outside of the USA!

1968 Oldsmobile 442 Roadster Shop Chassis, LS Engine, and Tremec TKX install at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop

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 video shows the dash replacement, but we’ll have a full feature on the car when it’s done!

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!
