Lot #944.1 - This 1968 Camaro was introduced to the public on the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour in June 2005. It was photographed by the editor of Chevy High Performance during the Power Tour and featured as the cover car for the October 2005 issue. This previously puny Camaro went from wrecked barn dweller to the gorgeous cruiser you see here. In just over 6 months and approximately 1,800 hours of thrashing, Terry Stevens and his friends straightened, smoothed, and painted the body, bolted in the 450 HP LS-2 crate engine, backed it with a Tremec 6 speed, and the best running gear and exterior and interior appointments available from more than 30 major aftermarket companies. The result is a car that is truly a pleasure to drive on the Long Haul Power Tour, to weekend cruise-ins, or just on a top-down tour of the countryside. A well planned project such as this ensures that you will have a classic muscle car that will handle any road conditions because it accelerates and stops as well as many modern exotics, idles quietly around town, wails like a banshee when the fly-by-wire throttle is shoved to the stops, all without bottoming or scraping! Detailed build information on this vehicle was available starting in the October 2005 issue of Chevy High Performance magazine and web site, and on the Dream Car Garage television web site. The car also appears in many of the aftermarket companies catalogs and on their websites. It was It was a great hit at SEMA 2005 and attracted hundreds of viewers who were working on similar projects. This Camaro was totally disassembled and rebuilt with the highest quality fasteners and parts available to ensure many years of trouble free enjoyment for the new owner. No expense was spared. A complete set of Chevy High Performance magazines with all of the build details is included with the purchase. You can't beat classic iron coupled with future technology!
