This black 69 Camaro just arrived for a few upgrades which include beefy Detroit Speed suspension and Dakota Digital gauges. The handling improvements will be significant after the Detroit Speed conversion. We are an approved dealer for both manufacturers so give us a call to learn more.

Please for the love of God DON'T put a GM motor in it! Coyote swap or a bad@$$ flathead belongs between the fenders!

Check out COE's and one tons for ideas...

I would check out the year ford wasn't making car or trucks in 42 they were making tanks and bombers tobgo after the Germans

We at PER Racing Engines would love the opportunity to do a Flathead for you.

If you go to are Facebook there are pictures of a 255 supercharged Flathead on are Dyno.

It needs a little classy, fine-line hand-lettered script 'Orange Crush' or 'Orange Rush' or something on it, maybe in a lighter orange. EVERYTHING needs hand-lettering actually-----not just Camaros.......

The Gallant Gray color by Axalta that we sprayed on this slightly modified 65 Corvette looks stunning in the sunlight.  We also added a modern LT4 supercharged engine found in the 2017 Corvette and it fits like a glove in the new tubular chassis.  We are located in Joliet, IL.  www.thehotrodbarn.com Axalta Automotive Refinish  #corvette #axalta

Can you guess the year of this iconic GTO?  This rare 1 of 1 Judge is running much better since it arrived at The Hot Rod Barn.  It was an honor to work on this PHS-certified classic.  We are now more conveniently located in Joliet, IL and 2 miles from the Chicagoland Speedway.

Thanks Jason your the only one I'd trust with my cars.

70

Possible it's a 68 being 1 of 1 without flip up headlights even though officialy the Judge didn't get released until 69.

69 would be my guess!!

My very favorite body style, although I prefer the coupe. Some day I'll tell you a story about it.

It looks awesome love to have it

Very nice 👍
