Six years after the legendary two day build, the car has just received some significant mods to elevate the car’s already competitive game. Front fenders have been flared by Smitty’s Custom Automotive to accommodate fat 315 wide front tires mounted on 11″ Forgeline ML3C wheels.  The car now rides on four 315mm tires rather than the former 315/275 combination. A 275 tire is all that will fit within the confines of stock Camaro fenders.  Great care was taken to flare the wheel arches with minimal visual impact. Then again, many here at RideTech think the most radical upgrade is the car’s Instinct Electronic Adaptive Shocks. It’s a tough call. We’ll let you decide.

The 48 HOUR CAMARO is a build like nothing before. The concept is simple, using the most current BOLT-ON performance products available, a “common” 1st Gen Camaro was transformed into a full out custom road and track machine – IN 48 HOURS.

The Original Car

A mostly stock, nicely restored 1967 Camaro served as the basis of the project. Of course, any car that has been around for over 4 decades can rightfully be considered “rare”, it is hard to image a more “common” example of what a large percentage of classic car folks have sitting in their garage. That is what made this the perfect example for what is possible with the availability of off the shelf bolt-ons.
