What do you see when you dial up our website and check out this polished Camaro? One of the coolest muscle cars ever produced? One of the most in-demand classic cars on the market? A highly functional pro-tourer that doubles as an athlete and a show queen? All of the above?

Sure, first generation Camaros are some of the coolest and most popular classics around, and the luxury and ergonomics provided by the pro-touring movement really put the icing on the cake. But this F1… Well, it's on a different level. Complementing everything great about timeless Detroit muscle with thoughtful design and exceptional construction, this Camaro is an extremely capable version of one of the most popular muscle cars ever created.

Let's start with the car's purpose. The enthusiast who commissioned its build wanted a show worthy classic that was specifically designed to endure the rigors of events like Goodguys AutoCross. To get something with that level of capability, he enlisted the pros at Smitty's Custom Automotive. Not only has Smitty's spent the last 20 years making a name for themselves in the pro-touring scene, they're also partner numero uno for RideTech's competitive Autocross program -- meaning they build AND race the firm's latest and greatest track warriors. When combined with $275K and 2,400 hours of skilled labor, that kind of expertise produces incredible results. And those results become quite obvious when you take a moment to look deeper at the car's build.

POWER

Dyno-tuned by Denver, North Carolina's Mass Acceleration Motorsports, this Camaro's hearty Chevrolet Performance LSA crate engine turns a whopping 670 rear-wheel horsepower into 696 lb./ft. of tenacious torque. Exclusive to the second-generation Camaro ZL1 and second-generation Cadillac CTS-V, the LSA utilizes a lightweight aluminum block and big Eaton blower to create 9 pounds of boost straight from the factory. Inside the internally balanced mill, a forged crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons join a low-lift roller cam to create stout 9.1 to 1 compression. That compression is managed by proven L92-style heads, which hide lucid roller rockers under Proform “Chevrolet” valve covers and a polished bowtie cap. Those heads are fed by GM electronic fuel injection, which attains a perfect mixture thanks to a custom air tube, a billet throttle body and a remote filter element. Beneath that tube, a heavy duty serpentine belt spins a reduced diameter blower pulley between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. In front of those ancillaries, a sealed support seats a meaty C&R Racing radiator between a C&R Racing intercooler and dual electric puller fans. The car's tidy engine bay is dotted with first class accessories, like stainless fluid lines, a billet clutch reservoir and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. And almost as cool as the engine itself is Smitty's top notch install, with billet hood supports and clean, Satin Black fenders complementing exposed hood weave and a smoothed, Redline Red firewall.

POWER MANAGEMENT

While the idea of making an old car as good as or better than a new car might seem a bit optimistic, the pro-touring movement is not without merit. That said, as with any dynamism, it embodies varying degrees of severity. It's a safe assumption that most pro-touring cars best their traditional brethren on the road, but what of the track? Well, that's what sets builds like this sweet coupe apart from the masses other red Camaros. A 670 wheel-horsepower engine could easily overwhelm a three or four speed, so this Chevy's builders installed a proven Tremec T56 6-speed. And behind that gearbox, $5K worth of Moser 12-bolt spins hearty 3.55 gears that have been micro-polished and cryogenically hardened.

Given the builder's partnership, it's no surprise to see everything rolling on choice RideTech suspension components. Out back, a heavy duty 4-link hangs Triple Adjustable Coil-Overs between seventh generation Corvette bearings that reduce vibration on track day. Up front, a full outfit of StrongArms strings two more Triple Adjustable Coil-Overs in front of a power-assisted Turn One steering box. It might seem curious that this Camaro is bereft of rack-and-pinion. But, since the car was engineered by professionals who've spent countless hours chasing cones, it's safe to trust their judgement.

Speaking of handling, stops are handled by a trusted Wilwood master cylinder, which clamps 14-inch slotted rotors through two 4-piston calipers and two 6-piston calipers. Exhaust floats from stainless shorty headers to custom, large-diameter pipes, which employ aggressive Magnaflow mufflers. Torque meets the pavement via familiar Forgeline wheels, which twist massive 275/35ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Rivals in front of predictable 335/30ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Rivals. And the car's undercoated floors frame many high quality ancillary items, like a Holley oil pan, proven Detroit Speed sub-frame connectors and a Rick's fuel tank that's finished with a ZL1 pump.

CONSTRUCTION AND CONDITION

As a rule, the best restorations begin as solid cars, and this fully documented Camaro was already in good shape when it rolled in to Tiffin, Ohio's Smitty's Custom Automotive. The idea behind the car's build was two-fold: 1) Create a lights-out classic that could win trophies 2) Give that lights-out classic the ability to hold its own at the Autocross course. Naturally, intense focus was put on this Chevy's legendary body, with official GM sheetmetal gapped to hand-built precision. Finessed for excellent fit, that metal was bathed in PPG Global 2-stage, which stretches from the car's factory drip rails and filled cowl all the way to its tucked bumpers and carbon fiber Cowl Induction Hood. That paint, reflecting 2014 Dodge Redline pigment, is accented with a Satin Black grille that frames modern headlamps, and a Satin Black valance that frames modern taillights. Fresh glass rides behind Satin Black frames and Satin Black wipers. The sides of the car are predictably clean, with second generation Camaro mirrors reflecting nothing more than aftermarket door handles. And details include a billet fuel filler and a Spoilers by Randy chin spoiler.

Given the broad aftermarket support enjoyed by the Camaro marque, it's relatively easy to build a serious performer. But most builds fail to refine that muscle into something that's livable on an everyday basis. After all, what fun is winning at the course if the ride there and back is almost insufferable? Well, refinement, and specifically interior refinement, is one of this Camaro's many virtues thanks to Baltimore, Ohio's Trent's Trick Upholstery. Trent's kept most of the car's timeless lines, finishing them in materials that are akin to today's top cockpits. Firm seats, tall Recaro buckets up front, have been dressed in tight leather and body-matched stitching. The car's dash wraps a Detroit Speed instrument panel around detailed, electroluminescent telemetry while balancing an Alpine CD player opposite Vintage Air climate control. Beneath that dash, a custom, full-length console surfs a billet shifter in front of sleek power window switches. Beneath that console, fresh carpet complements metal foot pedals and custom, speaker-infused kick panels. In front of the driver, a removable Momo steering wheel laps a tilting column. Behind the passengers, a detailed trunk seals hidden storage between a big JBL amp, JBL deck speakers and a hearty Optima battery. And a suede headliner frames a custom roll bar that employs a removable center section.
