The Car: 1972 Camaro with a GM LS2 engine and a 6-speed Transmission.


The Project: 
Dale Jr. was looking for a functional, race inspired, and fun to drive 2nd Generation Camaro. He was looking for a Camaro that had design cues of a 1970's Trans Am road race car.

This was a turn-key project for DSE. Upon arrival the car was immediately disassembled. After the car was stripped and media blasted we installed our DSE Mini-Tubs as well as the DSE QUADRALink™ to give the Camaro an awesome Pro-Touring stance. After that we installed our 2nd Generation Hydroformed Subframe as well as our Subframe Connectors to increase the car's stiffness.

The Owner: We hope Dale Jr. enjoys driving this modern machine as much as he loves driving his race car on the track.
