1969 Camaro "Carbon Flash" Restoration At V8 Speed & Resto Shop
1969 Camaro “Carbon Flash” Restoration in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop
Sometimes it’s advantageous to take over a project than to start from scratch.   In this case, the customer wanted a cool ‘69 Camaro, and we happened to find him one that was already undergoing a restoration.   The owner of this clean Arizona car changed his mind and decided to sell his project, so we had the car shipped to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, IL, where it will now become the Pro-Touring Camaro the new owner has always wanted.     Features include a Holley Terminator EFI system, Vintage Air A/C, Scat seats, restoration parts from Classic Industries, Axalta paint, ARP engine hardware, COMP cam, and much more.   
Once the car arrived in our shop, we took inventory of all the parts that came with the car and gave it an initial once-over. 
It is a very clean car that had just received a silver paint job.   Our customer wants a different color, but at least this one does not require extensive bodywork.

1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre Complete Restoration at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This cool 1966 Ford Galaxie 7-Litre just arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some restoration work.   We’re excited to have a very cool and unusual Muscle Car in the shop to help bring back to its former glory.   These cars helped Ford launch the new 428 V8, and were touted as being the most powerful quiet car you could buy in ’66.     We’ll be posting a photo gallery of the project as well as videos along the way.

This car was purchased new in ‘66 by our customer’s father and has been under the same family ownership ever since. The V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, IL, performed a complete restoration on this car, and the end result is better than new. Contact the shop today to discuss your next restoration project, we take them seriously and offer outstanding quality for your family heirloom. It even landed on the cover of Hemmings Muscle Machines Magazine when completed!
