This 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Pro Touring Build Is In Need Of Track Time!

Pro Touring builds can empty your wallet faster than a dam breach can empty a lake, but that doesn’t need to be the case. Pick a car with a good setup to begin with, focus on the right parts, and put it together with care and consideration, and you wind up with a performer. Take some time to work on aesthetics, and you wind up with a winner. That’s exactly where this 1979 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Pro Touring build lies…it’s a winner from tip to tail, a great execution of restomodification.
At first glance, you see a very clean rubber-nosed Camaro that has been treated to a very nice cleanup. Fresh paint and new stripes go a long way, and the CCW three-piece wheels are a great selection. The stance is spot-on, and everything looks nice and tidy. But it also looks purposeful, and that starts to really show once you get into the guts of the Chevy. Hiding under that scooped hood is a Dart “Little M” block filled with a SCAT forged crank, 10:1 Wiseco pistons, a Howards hydraulic roller camshaft, FiTech fuel injection, and 525 horsepower on tap. A Tremec TKO600 is always lovely to see, and out back a 9-inch rear end with Heidts four-link, 3.73 gears and QA1 units keep everything nice and planted so that the 225-section front and 325-section rear Toyo Proxess R888s can do their job.
Inside, the “mostly stock but modified well” theme continues with an all new interior that sports non-stock chairs for the front passengers and a Dakota Digital gauge cluster setup. All in all, this build was someone’s pet project and that it’s even being let go is amazing…normally, a car of this caliber is someone’s lifetime car, but who knows…maybe an even more tempting project has come along. All we know is that there are roadcourses and road rallies that this Camaro needs to see, and if the price stays in the five-figure range, it’ll be money well worth spent.
