1971 Pro Touring Chevrolet Camaro Is For Serious Drivers Only: eBay Find0
It may be one of the most track-capable, fastest Chevrolet Camaros ever built, but the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28 is still a bit of a handful. It has a six-speed manual transmission and 505 horsepower 7.0-liter LS7 V8 on offer, which if combined with limited driving experience, can prove to be difficult to handle on a racetrack.
We’re willing to bet the same is true for this Pro Touring-style 1971 Camaro built by Bob Bertelsen. Under the hood is a Mast Motorsports-built 7.0-liter LS7 V8 churning out 657 horsepower thanks to different Callies and Mahle components. The engine sends its power to the rear-wheels thorugh a Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission and a Moser Engineering 9-inch rear end with 3.90:1 gears.
That impressive and all, but in our opinion, the best part of this car is the expertly designed and executed custom interior and exterior. No body panels were left untouched during this resotmod’s build process, with every visible surface being smoothed out and shaped to Bertelsen’s liking. The grille was entirely custom-made for this car, and a 12-inch recess was even cut into the car’s roof, meant to mimic the similar styling element seen in the fifth-generation Camaro.
The inside of the Camaro is entirely redone, with a custom-built dashboard, door panels, and center console. The dash now houses a Stack Motorsports display and gauge cluster along with Vintage Air controls and modern-day air vents. The seats are contemporary ProCar seats with grey upholstery, which are color matched to a grey leather-wrapped wheel with orange contrast stitching.
The attention to detail in this build is astounding, but unfortunately, it commands the six-figure asking price you’d expect a build of this quality to. The car is currently for sale on eBay for $199,990, which could get you behind the wheel of some pretty special cars, not that Bertelsen’s Camaro isn’t special.
