This American vintage gem is stuffed with a twin-turbocharged LS3 V8!
Just about everybody involved with the auto industry is familiar with the SEMA show held at the Las Vegas Convention Center at the end of every year. SEMA offers the biggest opportunity to show off the latest in aftermarket parts, automaker's latest production vehicles, and where companies and shops show off the hottest builds they've been working on all year. Streetside Classics is pleased to offer this stunning and potent 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod dubbed "Snowblind".
Featured in the K&N booth at SEMA 2015, it is apparent that East Bay Muscle Cars in California put in plenty of work into this modernized vintage muscle car. In fact, the car took over 3 years to build and over $350,000 to build. Shining like a diamond, the custom-fabricated body of this restomod is cloaked in a PPG Honda White with satin gray and red accents. All the raw carbon fiber parts - including the custom hood - were sprayed with a satin clear coat, and all trim pieces were professionally powder-coated in "Cast Black". To avoid the vent window, this restomod was given doors from a '68 model Camaro. Showing minor signs of use, a clear bra was installed up front to protect it from road debris. An RS headlight package accompanies a custom blacked-out grille and lower valance. Further enhancing its aesthetic are staggered Rushforth wheels wrapped with Nitto performance radials.
Tucked inside the modified engine bay is a modern LS3 V8 crate engine equipped with a pair of turbochargers. Shifting power is provided by a T56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission and a Ram dual-disc clutch and down to an aluminum driveshaft. This setup has only been worked a mere 1,926 miles, a lot more than most SEMA builds. More mechanical highlights include stainless steel headers, an EBMC induction system, water-to-air intercooler, a large Ron Davis aluminum radiator with dual fans, a Rick's Stainless steel fuel tank, Aeromotive fuel pump, Vintage Air 'Front Runner' serpentine belt system, neat hydraulic lines and fittings from Fragola Performance. A custom stainless steel exhaust further enhances the performance soundtrack.

East Bay Muscle Cars reworked the entire dashboard that houses a 3D-printed instrument cluster stuffed with Dakota Digital VHX gauges. Other interior modifications include a multi-harness seatbelts, a sporty Sparco steering wheel connected to a tilt column, ice cold air conditioning, and a custom-built center console that plays home to the manual shifter.
