This Wicked, No Expense Spared, 1,000 HP Camaro Could Be Yours

Street cars just get crazier and crazier, and this 1969 Camaro that Pro Line Racing is selling for one of its customers is off-the-charts cool and is ready for street cruising, the dragstrip, or even better … drag-and-drive competition.

Let’s start off by talking about the show-quality execution. The Cyber Gray Metallic paint was put down by Keziah’s Collision Center in Ball Ground, Georgia. Including the bodywork, the staff spent 18 months beautifying the Camaro, it used original GM replacement panels, and finished the Camaro off with all new trim and glass. The owner then had Glass Life in Atlanta, Georgia, apply a full ceramic coating as well as a paint protection film on the lower half of the car.

The chassis was built by Rick Stevens Race Cars and features a raised floor to accommodate a full-length, 6-inch oval to 4-inch round street exhaust for comfortable cruising, as well as mammoth carbon-fiber wheel tubs to put some big slicks on if you feel so inclined. The chassis, which has been equipped with Menscer Motorsports shocks at all four corners, also features a Smith Racecraft tubular front end with a manual rack and pinion steering setup and the four-link rear suspension suspends a Mark Williams full-floater rearend with 40-spline axles and a 3.89:1, 10-inch gear set.

The full interior is well equipped with houndstooth-covered Kirkey racing seats, a custom center console, leather-trimmed dash, title steering column, full instrumentation as well as the FuelTech FT600 ECU display, and an 8.50-cert roll cage with swing-out door bars.

The business part of this build begins with a custom CN billet block designed to run water through it for street cooling. The 5.3-inch bore space, 746 cubic-inch powerplant is designed to run on pump gas with an 11:1 compression ratio and is topped with Slick Rick cylinder heads, and NRC-built sheet metal intake manifold, and twin Accufab 4500-series throttle bodies.

Backing the big-block is a Century Transmission-built, 4L80E four-speed automatic transmission that will be great for street cruising, and it’s fitted with a Neal Chance torque converter and Precision Shaft Technologies driveshaft, and shifted by an M&M shifter. Other details include an Aeromotive fuel system with an A1000 electric pump and a 20-gallon fuel cell for long cruises, a fat Ron Davis radiator and dual electric fans keep the engine cool, and a System One oil priming system was installed to circulate the Renegade 70-weight oil.

Rolling stock currently consists of Weld Racing 17-inch-diameter V Series front wheels wearing Mickey Thompson 25/6-17 radial tires and Sanders Engineering rear wheels that measure 15×14 inches and are shod with Mickey Thompson ET Street 315/60/15 drag radials. The owner went with TBM brakes with big 13-inch rotors up front and Mark Williams disc brakes at the back.

The owner commissioned RK Racecraft and Homier Fabrications to turnkey the Camaro, and its massive motor has a perfectly streetable camshaft and idle quality. While the owner hasn’t taken it to the track, they have put about 230 miles on the car since it was completed. On FuelTech’s hub dyno, the Camaro twisted up 1,040 horsepower, and there are two nitrous oxide systems that haven’t been used yet.
