This is a project my father and I have been working on.

It's a 1970.5 Camaro (Full Bumper) that we picked up for a steal. Goal with the car is to be a show car/weekend warrior


Hardest part is making sure the body is completely straight, we are going to be spraying high-build primer onto the car, hopefully here in a few weeks and then getting any surfaces taken care of and the car ready for paint.

The motor for the car is currently being built by Jeff McClintic, which will be a 454cui Big Block with 2 4-Barrel carbs, custom cam, and some nasty heads, im not up to date with what the specs are but Jeff said he has built a few of these setups before, and they make around 950hp on the engine dyno.

I will post more specs later on the build, but this is where we are at as of now.














This is the color we are painting the car


Here are a few examples of what we are trying to re-create

This is Dale Earnhardt Jr's Camaro
Basically the same theme, Orange/Black however we are going with a Cowl Hood and Different wheels. Same front-end though.

Here is a picture of the hood with black stripes


Rearend is going to look just like this car


When done the car will look similar to this

Chris, you SUCK!

70 1/2 is my Favorite of the Camaro's.

Funny thing is I have been looking for a nice 70.5 for a project car.

Can't wait to see yours finished.

Why aren't you going with the split bumper? I personally like the look of the huge grille with the split bumpers.

We are going with the Split bumper.

The one piece bumper is gone.

We are fitting the hood tomorrow, hinges just showed up today.

I think the motor is almost done being built.
