This car was built for a customer who bought a Dynacorn 1969 Camero convertible reproduction body after finding that the 69 supersport he bought was too rusty to restore.
During restoration we decided to update the drive line with a motor and transmission from a 2004 GTO. This is an LS1 with a L460E tranmission. We installed a complete AC system from VINTAGE AIR™. We also went with SSBC disk brake setup, front and back. We converted all windows to electric. We lowered the car by two inches. Also bought steering box, springs and shackles from Detroit Speed. A lot of accessories came from Year-One.

Finishing up some dash work, only thing left is the glove box door. But the Chip Foose custom steering wheel looks great attached to the Flaming River tilt column in front of the carbon fiber dash insert auto-meter gauges. Installed a brand new dash pad from OEM Auto Products. Old school Houndstooth seat covers and the center console from the 2002 Z28 Camaro fits like a glove. Emergency break lever works like a new car.

Here's a good picture of the LS1 conversion motor going into a '69 Camaro. Instead of notching the frame, we chose to get a relocation bracket for the Vintage Air A/C compressor. The bracket is from Quick Performance.
