“I’VE had this 1968 SS Ca­maro for 18 years now; it’s an on­go­ing project. I pur­chased it from a guy in Mount Mace­don; it had a 350 Chev, four-speed and 12-bolt diff at the time. Now it runs a 400ci small-block push­ing out around 550hp, with a Scat crank, Icon forged pis­tons, Scat H-beam rods, Crow hy­drauli­croller cam, Edel­brock Vic­tor al­loy heads and Yella Terra shaft rock­ers. On top is an Edel­brock RPM Air-gap man­i­fold and 750 Hol­ley carby, with spark com­ing from an ICE ig­ni­tion sys­tem. A 350 trans with a shift kit and 3500 Dom­i­na­tor stall con­verter gets the power back to a short­ened 12-bolt diff with a True­trac centre and Moser axles. She rides on Air Ride sus­pen­sion with Shock­waves and a four-link set-up. I’ve got tubu­lar A-arms up front and self-lev­ellers as well. The paint is the same as when I pur­chased it, with just a few touch-ups, and I also re­did the in­te­rior to orig­i­nal specs. Next will be a self-tun­ing EFI sys­tem and a dig­i­tal dash.” Pho­tos: Caprice Pho­tog­ra­phy
