1969 Camaro LS7

Joe LohrCompleted Projects

This isn't an LS7 big block Chevy we're talking about, it's the Corvette Z06 engine rated at 505hp from the factory! This '69 needs a little bit of work under its skin to be worthy of an awesome car, though. We found low-quality repair work done at several different times under a few layers of paint. Bondo where it's not supposed to be, paint over rust, you name it! This Camaro turns heads everywhere it appears from its aggressive LS7 engine and awesome blue paint job.
