White w/Red interior. Wegner 416/850hp LS V8, 5-spd. manual transmission.
This incredible ’69 Camaro was built by Chris Holstrom and is powered by a supercharged Wegner 850HP LS3 engine. Wegner delivered an LS3 stroked to 416 ci and topped with a Magnuson supercharger. It’s all coupled to a Rockland Standard Gear Tranzilla by way of a Quick Time bellhousing and a McLeod dual-disc clutch. That all drives a 3.89 gear on a Truetrac limited-slip carrier in a Strange housing. A pair of 335/30 hides mounted to 19×12 Forgeline wheels deliver power to the ground. And features Baer brakes and Forgeline ZX3P wheels finished with Gunmetal centers and Polished outers. It all sits on an Art Morrison chassis and subframe for better geometry, C6 Corvette arms and knuckles, a power steering rack and Strange coil overs. A weld-in GT Sport rear subframe delivers a triangulated four-link setup and another pair of Strange coil overs. The car then went to Josh Ewing Kustoms for a proper fitting. More than tub the car to fit the barrel-like wheels, Ewing basically reshaped the whole back of the car, even altering the floors to tuck a full 3-inch exhaust system and DynoMax Ultra Flo mufflers. And if you haven’t noticed, the car sits low. Really low.
To get the exhaust to come out where it did, the frame rail was cut at the coil over crossmember and hand built piece was crafted that comes around the back of the wheel and follows the quarter-panel. “You could put the thing on a pedestal and display it as art in your house! Ewing then fabricated the new tail panel with the exhaust outlets. To make 285/35s on 18x10s fit up front, Ewing fabricated wheel tubs entirely from scratch. He also shaped closeout panels, including a radiator cover. But it’s the seemingly invisible things that really make the difference, like how he reshaped the hood structure to fit around the Magnuson supercharger.
The custom leather interior by Jamie McFarland. They were going for a kind of high-end sports car’ feel on the inside. Bentley has a performance version where there’s no back seat—there’s a wraparound, sort of like a waterfall in the back. Trimmer Jamie McFarland at McFarland Custom Upholstery in Puyallup, Washington, replicated it in fiberglass. He also replicated the Bentley’s topstitch diamond pattern in all the inserts, including the heavily modified Corbeau A4 seats. McFarland also wrapped the modified Marquez dash. It houses a Dakota Digital VHX-1200 insert. Josh Ewing showed the breadth of his metalworking skills by whittling a housing to hold a set of Ford GT switches in the likeness of the Restomod Air Pro Touring vents.
The nice thing is that it all works. It idles like a modern car and you can drive it anywhere. It’s smooth until you put your foot in it. Then you better hold on! A lot of guys can’t use half the power they say they have, but because of that Morrison chassis the power gets put to the ground!
