The Chevy Camaro Custom Widebody is a 1969 model car but has been updated for today. See below for more details on this model!
Unlike many cruises and car meets specific to the model or orientation of the car, the Quarantine Car Cruise is a showcase cocktail of everything – from cars you might have seen at SEMA to your fanatic neighbor's garage building.
During a recent Quarantine Car Cruise event, Shawn from AutotopiaLA spotted a Chevrolet Custom 1969 Camaro Pro Touring widebody signed by Las Vegas based Nostalgia Hot Rods.
The build belonged to a loyal Nostalgia Hot Rods customer and was completed by the Las Vegas team about two years ago.
Most people would keep this gem under a tarp or occasionally take it out to the track for a few pulls, but not this owner.
It was designed to be a daily driver and has so far covered more than 8,047 kilometers since taking delivery two years ago.
Aside from its spectacular exterior, the cherry on top is what's under the hood.
According to Dustin of Nostalgia Hot Rods, this custom '69 Chevy Camaro has an LS7 base block built by Revolution Street Cars in Nevada.
It runs Bullet camshafts, AFR heads, custom alloy intake manifolds and a Nick Williams throttle body. Simply put, they went nine meters to ensure this classic custom build performed supercar power figures. Dustin hits a high six.
The team fitted a 6-speed TCI automatic transmission (based on a GM 4L80E) running in a rear-wheel drive layout to harness all that power.
For the suspension, the team opted for Speedtech Performance components (ideal for Pro Touring builds like these). Speedtech Extreme for the front suspension and for the rear suspension a Ridetech four-link suspension (complete with Ridetech coilovers all around).
The Chevy Camaro runs a MagnaFlow X-Pipe exhaust with a hidden tailpipe at the end behind a custom-built diffuser.
This build is not what you would normally see done on a '69 Chevy Camaro.
The nasty stripe running down the right side of the vehicle (in the engine compartment) would get a lot of hate from purists - but then again, it's not a collectible vehicle. It was built to be different.
The interior is not the typical design Chevy 54 year old Camaro. It has a modern feel, full Alcantara leather with white stitching, a Holley dash system, Paddle Shifters, Vintage Air A/C and Recaro seats.
