THE CHEVROLET CAMARO

Ostensibly an answer to Ford's sensationally-popular Mustang, Chevrolet's Camaro has roots that date back to 1962, when then-Chevy design chief Irv Rybicki suggested a small 'personal car' based on the Chevy II. General manager Semon 'Bunkie' Knudsen, however, was unconvinced, feeling that Corvair, Chevy II and the upcoming Chevelle had bases well covered. Rybicki, however, continued to work on proposals, and his 'Super Nova' made it to the 1964 New York Auto Show, a few weeks before Mustang's introduction. Once 100,000 Mustangs had been sold, however, GM management gave the Super Nova a more favorable glance. The rush was on to develop a pony car in less than two years.

Mechanically derived from the second-generation Chevy II, the Camaro was similarly a unibody design, with a stub frame ahead of the cowl. Exterior trim could be augmented with a Style Trim Group consisting of stripes and chrome, or one could choose the Rally Sport option to add disappearing headlamps and special taillights. Introduced on September 12, 1966, the Camaro was available either as a coupe or a convertible. Of nearly 221,000 sold about a quarter were soft tops; three quarters were V8s.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The Camaro offered here is no standard muscle car. This Camaro blends classic with new and has been restored and upgraded to be both extremely fast on the road and striking cosmetically. Starting out with a 1969 Camaro Coupe, Long Beach, California based RMD Garage took this car to the next level in a 3-year restoration and customization process. RMD's motto is 'Classic Lines and Modern Muscle', which couldn't be a more appropriate tagline for this powerful Camaro. The work was ordered by the consignor; actor, singer and television personality Jaime Camil.

RMD's work included a full strip and repaint of the Camaro, and the result is a mirror-like black finish on the exterior today, with flat black rally stripes. The bumpers were color-coded to match, giving the car a very clean look. American Racing custom alloy wheels was fitted and wrapped with Toyo performance tires. Custom Halogen head and fog lights was installed, to add to the package. Underneath, the chassis received high-performance suspension parts and cross-drilled disc brakes with upgraded calibers were fitted in each corner. To make the car go - and go fast - a new Chevrolet LS3 376 cubic inch (6.2-Liter) was acquired and fitted with electronic fuel injection and several other modern performance and reliability parts. The engine is reported to put out 550 horsepower, which is about twice as much as the base-model Camaro would have in 1969! A 4-Speed 4L60 automatic transmission was fitted to put the power to the rear wheels. The engine compartment was stripped for unnecessary ancillaries, and a beefy high-performance exhaust was fitted. The cabin was trimmed with a custom black leather interior, accented by a custom console harboring the electric window switches, and Sport-comp gauges in the dashboard. A proper sound system was fitted as well, to match or outplay the cars incredible engine sound.

Today the Camaro presents extremely well throughout and would be a welcomed participant in Hot Rod or Street Rod shows. YouTube videos can be found of the car, while being prepared at RMD Garage. Recently completed and ready to go, it is arguably a better machine now than anything one could have gotten off the dealership floor in '69. This impressive Camaro Restomod by RMD Garage blends classic Camaro looks with modern drivability and reliability. Fans of the classic muscle car can enjoy the best of both worlds with this incredible pro touring build completely sorted and ready to cruise or show.
