  • Vehicle Overview

    I have decided to take my 1969 Yenko Camaro Racecar and convert it to a Pro-Touring Monster. This car was originally turned into a race car in 1971 and has 4325 original miles on it. Most of the hard work has already been done, it's now just changing the minor things to make it work better on the street. I am starting with a car I have built for drag racing only. It was a 3-year project that I completed about 3 years ago and don't get a chance to take the car to the track anymore and decided to make it street-worthy, a monster streetcar. The car is fully tubbed, 12pt roll cage (certified to 7.50 seconds) with a Reher Morrison 540 (making 865HP) and then I added a 500HP shot of Nitrous. The car runs 8.86 seconds at 161MPH all day long. Here's what has been done to this beast. 1. Pull the motor and replace 15:1 compression pistons with 11:1, new hellfire rings, replace solid roller with a roller hydraulic cam and lifters, valve job and replace valve springs to match new cam. Change the bearings, gaskets, etc., check everything and clean the motor up. It only has about 50 passes on it. 2. Pull TCI Turbo 400 with Trans Brake and replace with 4L80e with 3200 Stall lock up converter. 3. New Wheels ( I am currently thinking of Bonneville –G’s from Billet Specialties. 18X15 on rear and 18X8 on front. Tires will be MT Sportsman SR 31X18X18 and Nitto 555R 245/35/18 for the front. 4. Replace lower (stock) control arms with tubular lower and add coil over’s upfront. The car already has ladder bars and a 3 link with coil over’s in the rear. It also has front tubular upper control arms installed. 5. Interior is a serious race at the moment, although it still has a stock dash with factory gauges (Complete and unmolested) with some added gauges throughout. The tin and tub work is the best I have seen. It is mint and will stay just the way it is. I am going to pull the seats and replace them with something comfortable, new carpet, some sound and cleanup of the multitude of gauges.
