Here is the 1967 Camaro SS that was featured here earlier when it came in. Now it is painted and will be delivered to the customer who will be doing the final assembly. He plans on hitting the roads this summer. The color is GM Admiral Blue with BMW Alpine white/Abalone silver pearl stripes. We cannot wait to see this car on the road.
Today, we're celebrating a couple of awards that went to a customer at a recent car show. You saw this car in our BLOG back on February 23. The car was already a head-turner when Joe, the owner, brought it to us. Blue Sky was commissioned to make some cosmetic updates to the engine compartment and new wheels and tires. The car was also re-badged to reflect the 455 engine that was part of an earlier update. It was delivered during the recent Blue Sky open house. Joe displayed it in the Park Ridge car show last weekend where it won its category, 1960’s, and also took BEST OF SHOW.
Congratulations to Joe on getting recognition for a truly unique and awesome vehicle. And thanks to Joe for giving Blue Sky the opportunity to work on it.
Most folks in the collector and classic car business know the Hemmings name. We've posted from their site in the past. The decision in selecting a shop for your restoration project must consider a wide range of questions. Restoring a car will take a lot of time and at the end, it is all about your satisfaction with the result. This article does a great job of laying out the decision points that lead to the making the right final choice.
This 1967 Camaro SS comes to us from a customer that is “hands-on.” Blue Sky has been chosen to perform the body and paint work on the project. The original body was too far gone, so to save the hassle and cost of repairing countless areas of rust, our customer purchased a replacement body and all new body panels from Real Deal Steel. This approach can be more cost effective than trying to restore an original body that is too riddled with rust, patches and bondo. Great job by Real Deal Steel supplying a product that is particularly high quality. Check them out: http://realdealsteel.com/
The car will be given a show finish in 2017 Corvette Admiral Blue with traditional SS stripes in Pearl White. Check back for updates on this project. Once it is painted, the customer will take over and finish the project. We can’t wait to see this car on the road.
Major progress on this LeMans recently. You saw the car here on an earlier BLOG entry. Fab and metal work is now complete! Next steps: powder coat and paint. Take a look at the exhaust fabricated in-house along with the frame courtesy of The Roadster Shop.
