13 Year Build '69

Just a quick introduction...I bought this car in 1999, and it has been in pieces since about 2000. I have been a member here since 2004. I haven't posted much, but I have read..and learned...a ton! Thanks to everyone for that!

Some basics on the car:

1994 LT1
700R4
8.5" 10 bolt posi
Nova brake swap in front, '79 T/A brake swap in rear
WS6 power steering box
Hotchkiss springs front and rear
Vintage V48 wheels and Bridgestone tires

A lot has changed in the Pro-Touring design arena in the last 13 years, so some of my modifications are a bit dated.

Anyway, I am back on track now and just took the car to the shop for wiring and exhaust. I may be an optimist, but I plan on driving it next spring!

The Camaro was originally Dover White with Medium Green interior and vinyl top. I plan on keeping it white, but changing the interior and top to black...oh, and adding DX1 stripes.

Re: 13 Year Build '69

I can remember being at that point in the past. At least now you're at the "putting it back together" stage instead of the tearing down. It's nice when you finally see all your years of work start to pay off in a positive way

How much longer do you think before it hits the road?

Re: 13 Year Build '69

What kind of suspension do you have on the car? Are you running leafs in the rear?

You don't have to have the $$ and latest parts to have a PT car, I like the parts you've collected.

Great wheel choice too - keep at it man!

69 RS - LS7, T56, Currie, DSE, ATS, Vintage Air, Wilwood
Original floor/trunk. Under construction.
