BATTLE READY CAMARO
OWNER of this prodigious ’69 Camaro, Jason Dillon calls the colour, ‘Battleship Grey’. But forget trying to find it on any colour chart, it’s his own, one-off, custom-mixed colour. Bought sight-unseen off-the net as a rusty survivor, the F-Body has been completely rebuilt. It rides on 18×7 and 20×10, satin-finished Streeters, sporting custom-made flat centre caps. Part of the American Legend, 1-piece Classic Muscle Series, the Streeters are wrapped in sticky Kumho 225/40R18 and 295/30R20 rubber. To make the most of the enhanced grip, Jason added Hotchkis chassis connectors to the seam-welded front clip, QA-1 coil-overs up front and lowered DSE leaf springs out back with QA-1 shocks. There’s also a set of DSE mini-tubs to let the fat-lipped Streeters tuck nice ‘n’ high up into the wheel wells. Other standout highlights include; a loud and cranky (thanks to its solid lifter cam) 600-horse, 406-cube small-block, Huges TH350 and 10-bolt filled with billet axels and Positrac centre. Inside is an array of updated instruments, extra Auto Meter gauges, B&M shifter, tonnes of retrimming and a thumping audio system for cruising tunes.
