First of all, thank you people at Ultimate Auto for making my day. The team got together and modified on of my favorite cars ever, a muscle-car that is, and this Camaro project of theirs definitely takes the cake! Dubbed the “Ultimate Sixty Seven” Camaro, this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro was put through some serious work and modifications, mixing modern and classic cues together.
It has to be said that this project is actually a tribute to the almighty 1967 Chevrolet Camaro , a muscle car specifically designed and built to stop the Ford Mustang in its tracks, as it tried to take over the market. No doubt, it took a lot of effort to modify the body of a first-gen Camaro, especially adding those hand-built parts and accessories, not to mention the interior and power-train modifications. This car was actually built almost from scratch.
There isn’t a single bolt on this Camaro that has remained untouched, as the team at Ultimate Auto din’t hold back making use of both metal and carbon-fiber parts, as well as of several 1967 and 1969 Camaro parts in order for us to savor this beautiful end result. The drivetrain was replaced with a supercharged GM LS9 engine mated to a Tremec T-56 transmission. No official numbers have been released, but I’m speculating – considering the engine’s name and the tweaks provided by Mast Motorsports – there’s at least 700-horsepower under that bonnet.
Those widened fenders have been handcrafted so that they fit the fat front 265/30-20 and rear 355/25-21 tires. The carbon-fiber splitter fitted under the bespoke grille and LED headlamps lets you know that this Camaro was born in the 21st century, while the roof was covered in the same material. At the back, a carbon-fiber diffuser sits below the 1967-style gas filler and the inverted 1969 Camaro taillights. That eye-catching and superb paint-job you’re looking at is a coat of BASF R-M Carizzma “Ruthless Red.”
Inside the cabin, you’ll find mostly 2013 Camaro parts and everything has been wrapped in light brown Italian leather. Except for the center console, dashboard, front seats and steering wheel, everything else has been hand-crafted to look similar to a 2013 Camaro while also fit into a 1967 model. The custom gauge and carbon-fiber inlays complete the design, and if everything here is to your liking – as probably is the sound of that awesome engine – it will cost you $295,000 to own such a ride.
