How Striking is the Custom 1970 Camaro

1970-Camaro-SEMAThis question is always bound to receive a ton of answers and a landslide at that. It’s safe to say that the Custom 1970 Camaro is so striking that it silenced all the other vehicles at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

To say that people did double take or had their eyeballs rolling would be an understatement. This 1970 Camaro outshined them all even the Gen 6 Camaros that were sashayed with it. But what’s so special about this machine?

First things first, its hyper blue metallic finish and accompanying white rally cross body stripes make for a very powerful visual punch. It has the signature closed two-door car body style with a permanently attached fixed roof that makes for that classic sports car feel. It’s too eye-catching that it just stands out among the rest. As they say, in a world full of stars it’s the one that’s bound to steal the spotlight. It’s so electric it makes it hard to look away.

Another very interesting catch to the machine is the fact that it’s the perfect marriage of modern meets vintage. The 1970 Camaro, dubbed as one of the best muscle car classics, was equipped and upgraded with the best updates any automobile can possibly have. It even comes with a T-56 Super Magnum 6 speed manual gearbox and transmission, a six-point roll cage, wet-sump kit, aluminum cylinder heads, aluminum pistons, an overhauled suspension with coilovers at both the front and the rear, complementing air conditioning, front-end accessory drive kits, titanium intake valves and custom gauges. Whew, what a mouthful!

In terms of power, the grandest of them all has to be its engine. The vehicle was fitted with an LT4 crate engine, the most powerful one from General Motors to date which belts out 650 horsepower, a 650 pound-feet of torque and a top speed of 155 mph.. With so much speed and clout, manufacturers also installed Corvette Z06-based front and rear disc brake kits for optimum stopping power. The said kits were first developed and designed for the Stingray.

To truly capture its vintage side, the interiors were a beefed up version of the Gen 3 Camaro. The seats were made of custom trimmed leather. The fully updated gauges also came wrapped in the same custom leather. To create juxtaposition on the exteriors, manufacturers added LED headlights and the taillights to complement the hyper blue metallic finish.
