Roadster Shop, an American workshop known for its production of muscle car chassis, has restored a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that pumps out 650 hp, thanks to a Wegner Motorsports LS7 engine that has been paired to a T-56 6-speed manual gearbox.
The Camaro also gets a Fast Track IRS chassis, Baer brakes, ADV.1 wheels and a host of custom details. The design has taken cues from contemporary European coupes but without losing the influence of Camaro’s classic look- hence the name “Fused”.
The first generation Camaro appeared in dealerships in September 1996 and was Chevrolet’s answer to the Ford Mustang that took the world by storm after its introduction in early 1964. With the Mustang, Ford was successfully able to put out a product that attracted the young driving enthusiasts. The vehicle’s sales surpassed the company’s expectations and General Motors soon wanted some share of Mustang’s market, hence the birth of the Camaro.
