Super Chevy – October 2019

(Barré) #1

he shop’s always busy over at Classic Car Studios (CCS),
consistently pumping out primo, grade-A Chevy muscle rides
for all of us to ogle over. And once again the boys at CCS are not
going to disappoint with their latest big-powered Chevy build. Now, don’t let the name
throw you off, as this is no Mopar hot rod, it’s 100-percent GM branded, built up and
bodacious-ly badass.
This Pro Touring Bowtie behemoth is one sweet Camaro to say the least, built with the
best parts that American bucks could buy, and then stuffed into a needy ’69 Camaro fuselage.
The build started off with a used, but not so abused, Camaro body, which was brought
down to its bones for a fresh rebuild from the ground up. Detroit Speed (DSE) handled the
suspension duties, adding front and rear coilovers and a rear QUADRALink suspension.
Wilwood brakes supply the stopping power and Forgeline wheels add the bling at the corners.
For motorvation, a monster Shafiroff 540 big-block was called in for duty and is backed by a
TCI Turbo 400. DSE rack-and-pinion steering keeps this ride pointed in the right direction
and the company also supplied the front and rear sway bars for extra handling when needed.
There are plenty of body mods on the exterior, which were covered in a stunning BASF paint.
And once again, the crew at CCS have outdone themselves on the interior, bringing in European
flavored bucket seats for comfort and a sporty look, and then wrapping the whole cockpit in
some soft Relicate leather for a touch of class. Like always, stay tuned for a full feature on this
Chevy “Hell Cat” on and in print
in the near future.
