Building a show-stopping trailer queen is all well and good, but there’s something about a custom car made explicitly for driving fun that deserves its own praise. Such is the case for the 1969 Chevy Camaro Pro Touring build featured in the following video, which has clocked a little over 5,000 miles since it was completed.
Built by the folks at Nostalgia Hot Rods in Las Vegas, this 1969 Chevy Camaro video comes to us from AutotopiaLA, and is about 22-and-a-half minutes long.
The first thing to grab us about this 1969 Chevy Camaro is the styling, which incorporates crisp, clean lines enhanced with an equally clean white finish and a single silver racing stripe. The builders enhanced the lines with a custom widebody treatment, adding an extra 1.5 inches of width in back and an extra 3 inches of width up front. The rocker panels were also lowered by 2.5 inches, while a custom front spoiler and rear diffuser help to bring it closer to the ground as well. The spoiler and diffuser were both made from metal. In the corners, we see a set of Forgeline wheels, which are wrapped in 345 tires in back and 285 tires in front.
Driving those meaty slabs of rubber is an LS7 base block, which was upgraded with a new cam, AFR heads, custom alloy intake, and Nick Williams throttle body. The V8 exhales through a Magnaflow exhaust, and produces somewhere around the “upper sixes” in terms of output. While certainly not the highest horsepower figure we’ve ever seen for a Chevy Camaro, it’s pretty stout for a naturally aspirated driver.
Output is sent to the rear tires through a TCI six-speed transmission, which is based on the 4L80E prior to being upgraded to a six-speed.
Naturally, all that go also requires some beefy handling bits, and to that end, this Chevy Camaro is now running a Speedtech ExtReme front-end setup, Ridetech four-link in the rear, and Ridetech coilovers at all four corners. Wilwood brakes haul it down.
