1969 Camaro "Carbon Flash" Restoration At V8 Speed & Resto Shop

 

1969 Camaro “Carbon Flash” Restoration in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop
 
Sometimes it’s advantageous to take over a project than to start from scratch.   In this case, the customer wanted a cool ‘69 Camaro, and we happened to find him one that was already undergoing a restoration.   The owner of this clean Arizona car changed his mind and decided to sell his project, so we had the car shipped to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, IL, where it will now become the Pro-Touring Camaro the new owner has always wanted.     Features include a Holley Terminator EFI system, Vintage Air A/C, Scat seats, restoration parts from Classic Industries, Axalta paint, ARP engine hardware, COMP cam, and much more.   
 
Once the car arrived in our shop, we took inventory of all the parts that came with the car and gave it an initial once-over. 
 
It is a very clean car that had just received a silver paint job.   Our customer wants a different color, but at least this one does not require extensive bodywork.

This cool 1966 Chevelle is the second for it’s owner Larry Frees, who might be familiar as the caretaker of the “Mr. Chevy” 1955 Chevy gasser and hauler ramp truck.     He had a Marina Blue ‘66 many years ago, and this car will serve to be the “jumping off point” from where his old ‘66 left off.    Larry provided us with the beginning of the restoration story as it unfolds in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop.

This 1967 Ford Mustang lived a full life, and eventually it was torn down for a restoration to repair rust and damage to the body.   Unfortunaltely, the shop doing the work couldn't complete the task, so the car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for completion.    Our technicians inspected the car and after chatting with the owner, it was decided that much of the metalwork on the '67 could have been of a higher level of quality, so our team is working to bring the car to a higher level, as it's been in the owner's family since 1973!

This 1967 Ford Mustang Convertible is powered by a small-block Ford V8 and has been a reliable crusier for the owner for years.    Time has taken a toll, however, as the car is now in need of some underside rust repairs and sheet metal replacement, so the V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew is hard at work to bring it back to a solid car.
