If you’re looking for an original, classic, 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, this is the exact opposite. For sale at Streetside Classics is a crazy, twin-turbo LS3 powered 1967 restomod Camaro that was once a SEMA Show car in 2015. Nicknamed “Snowblind”, this Camaro is also an extremely high quality build, and its $164,995 asking price reflects that. Still, the seller estimates it was a $350,000 build, so it’s a bit of a bargain in some ways. It’s no Valkyrja, but it is still a sight to behold.
The powertrain is the headline feature of this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. Under the exposed carbon fiber hood sits a twin turbo LS3 V8 GM crate engine hooked up to a T56 Magnum 6-speed manual. Coupled with upgraded headers, intercooler, intake and radiator, the engine pushes out an estimated 750 hp, according to reporting around its 2015 SEMA debut. It’s a beautiful engine bay too, with a custom intake sitting atop the engine and exposed satin carbon fenders flanking either side.
All of that power needs to be put down to the road somehow, and the “Snowblind” restomod Camaro has all the quality handling components you could ask for. The entire front and rear subframe is completely new, courtesy of Art Morrison Chassis. At each corner sit 18×10 front and 19×12 rear custom Rushforth wheels. Adjustable Afco shocks and Eibach springs form the suspension system, while huge six piston front and four piston rear Wilwood Racing brakes slow everything down from presumably high speed.
At this point, its pretty obvious the styling and interior are about the only thing that is at all similar to a 1967 Chevy Camaro. But even these have been massages and modernized. On the outside, it’s supposed to look as clean and simple as possible, hence the removal of most trim and white paint.
The interior features Corbeau racing buckets attached to a roll cage and harnesses to hold the driver in place, and everything is covered in leather or suede. The center console has been reworked to fit the 6 speed shifter, power window switches and touchscreen head unit. That stereo is also hooked up to an all new Memphis sound system with subwoofer. Finally, the gauges are modernized and feature the “Snowblind” logo.
While purists may scoff at extreme makeover, it’s hard to deny the quality and attention to detail that went into the build. It’s a truly crazy Camaro, and you have the chance to own it.
