Mel B’s 1969 Camaro

Built From The Ground Up

Mel B’s 1969 Camaro

Mel B bought this 1969 Camaro in 2013 with it needing a full restoration at the time.

After the first round had been completed, Mel realized that there was a desire for more power. Naturally, they spent the time and effort to do it over again, but this time there would be a ZZ502 crate engine making 586 horsepower under the hood.

“I love the styling of the 69 Camaro. It is fun to drive.”


Now that he’s satisfied with the results, the Camaro gets driven and shown quite a bit.
