We are all very excited here at V8TV and the V8 Speed & Resto Shop, as we've received the high honor of being chosen to restore the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro belonging to COMP Cams! They've had the car for many years, and 2016 marks the 40th Anniversary of COMP Cams, so they wanted the car freshened up for the milestone year.    We'll be documenting the restoration of the car along the way, both in photos and video.  

 

Plans for the car include a FAST EFI equipped LS engine mated to a TCI 6X 6-speed automatic transmission, a Heidt's suspension system, updated wheels, tires, and brakes, and a fresh paint job... among many other details.    Although the car will retain it’s black-and-white theme, it will have a red pinstripe on the SS stripes, updated wheels to go with the new suspension, and a few other subtle tricks here and there. It's going to be a stunner!

 

Our crew is ready to make it happen, and we're proud to work with one of the industry icons to bring this significant car up-to-date.  Follow along in the photo gallery, videos, and a build thread on this slick '69!

1965 Impala SS

The V8 Speed & Resto Shop crew recently completed the restoration of this very cool and subtly modernized 1965 Chevrolet Impala.    Today, it drives better than any stock '65 ever drove, thanks to a Ridetech suspension system, and it is powered by a retro-themed 6.0 LS V8 engine and a 6-speed manual gearbox.     The look is sharp thanks to a load of OER restoration parts from Classic Industries.   The V8 crew started with a bare shell and brought this sweet Impala back to life, completing metalwork, suspension and chassis repairs, all the body and paint work, and final assembly.    

Check out the Build Thread of this slick '65!

1984 Olds Cutlass restoration at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop

This 1984 Oldsmobile Cutlass was brought to our shop by the man who bought it new and still owns the car.    Over the years, the paint has faded and it had some hail damage, so the owner wanted a freshen-up on the outside, while adding some cool upgrades in the form of a YearOne Power Crate Engine, a Holley Terminator EFI system, and a TCI 4L60 overdrive transmission.   A set of Rocket Racing Wheels competes the look.
