Thought I’d share the build project of my ’70 rs Camaro just so I can keep track of what I did and to add to the wealth of information on this site . I always had a soft spot for camaro’s since I own and race one , and I really liked the way 2nd gen’s (especially split bumper ones) looked . so after looking around for a while I found this one and jumped on it . the plan was to push it to the side and start gathering parts slowly ( read slowly) and only start working on it after I was done with the scout conversion and Porsche projects I had going on ,,,,,, guess I’m a lousy planner. Any how , the plan is to redo this car and make it into a fun cruiser that I can drive anytime and take across country on trips , which means comfy ride , nice interior , AC , sound system , good brakes , dependable engine/trans, and just enough power . In the beginning I was thinking of just swapping an LS motor in there (like I always do) but after finding this car I thought why not stick with the big block it came with. So the idea is to do this thing in stages , first would be to redo all the bushings and worn out stuff on the suspension , then refresh the engine and convert to EFI , then redo the interior ( more like do the interior since there was nothing in there ) , all while rebuilding a new engine with good internals and heads and have it ready for when the time comes. After the car is done (well running down the road) paint it then slap a couple of turbo’s on there just cause big blocks and turbo’s give me a nice warm fuzzy feeling Off course that was the plan ,,,, but some minor changes occurred and now you have this build thread. So , a little information about the car : 1970 RS camaro , had a high compression 468 dropped in along with a th400 and 3.73 gears in the stock 10 bolt rear end , the paint was kinda new and the body work ok ( from 10 feet away that is ) . the car had the part of the AC removed and the interior was almost non existent aside form the dash and seats . It had Cragar wheels with newish tires , skinnies up front and 295 in the rear, slapper bars and ok exhaust along with the original hood and a fiberglass pin on hood .
