Ringbrothers is no stranger to creating incredible Chevrolet Camaro builds. And for the 2022 SEMA Show, that’s no different. Following up on their radical Valkyrja build from 2019 is the even more powerful Strode: a 1969 Camaro that shares next to nothing with the original car.
What Is The Ringbrothers Strode 1969 Chevrolet Camaro?
The overall build took the team over 6,500 hours to complete, with a large chunk of those hours spent specifically on the carbon-fiber parts for the car. It’s not an exact copy of the original, as some modifications had to be made to fit the design onto a modern chassis, which Ringbrothers has yet to reveal. In order to fit the chassis, the original design needed to be widened by five inches. The rocker panels are also a bit lower, and you may have noticed that the center of the roof features a recess. The hood has been lengthened and reshaped, and the fenders also feature a unique design with cutouts for vents and body accents. Ringbrothers then painted the Camaro Strode in BASF Glasurit Ghost White paint, which looks spectacular.
To ensure the rebuilt car still features the look of the 1969 Camaro, Ringbrothers scanned the original car’s body, then digitally modified it before producing it in carbon fiber. Additionally, custom 3D-printed and billet-machined parts were also manufactured for the build. The cabin features trim by Upholstery Unlimited and modern touches like Dakota Digital gauges, JL Audio sound, and a Vintage Air Gen IV climate control system. The rear seats have been removed because a custom roll cage was far more important.
Of course, we must remember the heart of the build; a Wegner Motorsports LS3 V8 tuned to deliver 1,010 horsepower thanks to the Whipple supercharger mounted to the engine. The motor also features hand-built headers and Flowmaster mufflers. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a reworked Bowler Tremec T-56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission and John’s Industries 9.0-inch rear differential. The independent suspension is a Roadster Shop Fast Track design with QA1 MOD Series coilovers. Everything rides on custom HRE Wheels known as the Ringbrothers G-Code Edition – a previous Ringbrothers Camaro build. To ensure the car can put all of that velocity to a halt, a set of Baer brakes has been equipped onto the Ringbrothers Strode Chevrolet Camaro.
