Behold this pristine 1971 Chevrolet Camaro project, nick named the Brute Force Camaro. You might think that it was built by the famous Ringbrothers tuning shop. But in reality, it’s the brainchild of a man named Bob. Bob Bertelsen. In his own garage.
Every body panel has been touched and reformed to create a slick, modern street rod build from the inside-out. While the exterior keeps many of the classic design nods, the interior goes completely modern. A modern day dashboard, seats and gear selector make things seem as if you’ve hopped into a modern day track car and, not to mention, the Garmin GPS tucked in flush with the headliner.
Power comes from a 427 cubic-inch LS7 V8 engine, producing 650 hp, and shifted through a Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed gearbox.
The 1971 Camaro has won countless magazine and show awards for the craftsmanship gone into the vehicle. And it can be yours.
The 1971 Brute Force Camaro has landed on eBay for a cool $189,990. Is it worth the price tag? You bet. Check out more photos and grab more info at the listing here.
Update: an earlier version of this post claimed that the vehicle was built by Ringbrothers. It’s been revised to reflect the actual builder.
