When John King of Jackson, Wyoming was ready to have the dream car he always wanted, his search lead him to a classic car lot in Chicago. His dream car of choice? A 67 SS Camaro with a 454 and a 5 speed. As beautiful as the car was, once John bought it and got it home, he realized how bad a 40 year old car drives! A call to Chris Holstrom Concepts would soon start the much needed transformation that John desired.
CHC picked it up from Wyoming last fall to update the wheels, tires, suspension, Ford 9” rear end with 4:11 posi. Immediately, calls went out to Speedtech, ATS, Rushforth Wheels, Hotchkis suspension, and Nitto tires to get the project underway.
While this project is still a work in progress we are happy to say that it heads back home in a few months totally transformed!
Newsflash!! John's car is back! We are completing the transformation we started last year by replacing the tempemental 454 with a 6.0 LS engine. We are on a search for more horsepower, drivability and miles per gallon. Yes you can have your cake and eat it too! This one of 4 LS conversions taking place at the shop right now.
