Bad Boys Own Bad Toys: One Mean Green 1970 Chevy Camaro Street Machine
The one thing that is important with all muscle cars is located under the hood. There is something special when someone pops the hood for the first time with all the power under it. Today we are going to show you something weird and special at the same time. In the video provided bellow, there is one interesting 1969 Chevrolet Camaro. Under the hood you will see that the car have a 427 LS7 V8 Engine.
If that’s not so interesting, then take a look behind it, you will see that there are two identical engines installed there. Because of that the cabin firewall is being moved back a little, to free up some space for the twins. So do the math, we have two 427 LS7 V8 Engines capable of producing 600 horsepower installed in this ‘69 Camaro.
You are asking yourself, how on earth does this thing work? Well both of those 427 LS7 V8 engines feature a custom Collies Crankshaft, Forged JE Pistons, Special Grind Comp Cam and Custom Fluidampr Balancers. And all the setup is assembled with ARP bolts. The back engine is connected to a Level VII RPM Transmissions 4L60E Automatic. The transmission is controlled via B&M Shifter and coupled to a heavily modified Corvette C6 Differential. The rear suspension is also brought by Corvette C6/Z06.
The car has in total exactly 1200 horsepower under the hood. Isn’t that something special?! It’s all about the engineering and the craftsmanship, because that horsepower could be easily accomplished with only one engine and a lot of money. All in all it’s one remarkable piece of work. The name of this project is Z-16 and with the hood closed. You would never know what’s under it. It just looks like a nice Chevy Camaro. And when you stand behind the wheel and driving that monster, you could be easily arrested in less than 5 minutes.
