"Reloaded" is the name of this Pro-Touring 1968 Chevrolet Camaro, and for good reason. Starting with the remnants of an original '69 SS 396 Camaro, the V8 Speed & Resto Shop Crew transformed this one into a big-block powered, road hugging show-stopper with timeless styling and excellent build quality.

The owner of this Camaro bought the car back in the '80s, and had driven it for a short period of time, and wanted to build a Pro-Street version which was all the rage back then. However, he didn't get very far on the build, and the project stalled as you see it in this pic:

The owner retained most of the original parts from the car, and being from California originally, it appeared to be pretty solid.



The stock sub frame was not very rusty, and most of the panels appeared to be usable.

One interesting feature on this car is the dent in the original SS hood, which was A victim of a failed flex fan blade!





Our crew installed the body shell onto the auto twirler rotisserie, and hauled the car and it's parts to our shop.

The initial inspection showed rust in all of the places where Camaros and Firebirds rust. This one had rusty wheel opening edges in the quarter panels, the bottom of the cowl boxes were rusty from holding wet leaves, and the window frames were rusty.







The windows and the rear deck lid a filler panel rusted heavily from moisture being held in the vinyl top.
