Thoughts on my future build?

I just bought a super straight clean rust free 67 Camaro coupe orig a/c car, my plans run from dropping a 250 straight 6 with vintage air and being different.


To using a stock 4 bolt main gm 350 to the beast zz502 all backed by a Muncie 4 speed, the car will be driven a lot with stock 15x6 disc brake rally's and redline tires.


Id appreciate all the guys and gals inputs here are a few paint combos I'm looking at and the car as it sits now floor and trunk are perfect

Whatever you decide go with an OD tranny.

502 HP ZZ502 is NOT good bang for the buck at over $10K

I would go LS and forget the 60 year old tech

If you don't like LS then think about a 500 hp 400 SBC for under $6k

Re: Thoughts on my future build?

Modern transmission for sure. But whatever your vision is, is how you should do it.

Id' prefer an LS/LT based engine, maybe dressed or disguised to look like a carbureted engine,move the coils off the valve covers.
Or a BIG" small block with lots of aluminum on it to lighten it up.

Some cars look good parked on the grass,but drive like a wet noodle.
some cars are much more fun to drive than just park and look at.
I'd like one that does both well if I could afford it.
Depends on what you enjoy and how much $$ you can blow.

And redline tires. I realize they are available as radials but I always envision them as bias ply.

Re: Thoughts on my future build?

Would definitely go with a 5 or 6 speed trans. Add 4:11 gearing and a moderately built 350 or LS for a really fun car. Tire and wheel upgrades would be a must!

Moser 9" with 4:11
Martz Chassis 4-link and Front Sub-frame
Tremec T-56 Magnum 6 speed
572 BB - CM Engines
Wilwood 6 piston front and 4 piston rear disc
