Ground Up’s 1979 Camaro Z28 Resto-Mod

Ground Up’s 1979 Camaro Z28 Resto-mod – fully restored in 2014

Ground Ups™ 1979 Camaro Z28 was found on the Internet, and was shipped from Michigan to the Ground Up warehouse in late 2012. The car was in worse shape then initially expected and the car had to under go a full frame off Ground Up™ restoration. The Camaro’s bodywork and paint was preformed and completed by Russ at Boss Fiberglass and the car was fully assembled by Nick and his crew at Unique Performance.

This is where the car got a touch of modern day automotive technology. Detroit Speed provided us with the speed kit-3 suspension kit to give the Camaro a nice smooth ride and the engine was pulled out and substituted for a GM Ram Jet 350 crate motor with a Tremic 6-speed manual transmission. The interior also got an update from the original styling of the 1979 Camaro with TMI deluxe black on blue bucket seats and door panels, GT Performance GT3 steering wheel kit, a Classic Auto Air heating and A/C kit, Retro Sound audio system, and a complete gage kit from AutoMeter. The car all came together over two years and was completed in 2014.
