This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro restomod is all about taking one of the most aggressive '60s designs and adding ultra slick paint, modern trim, a custom luxury interior, four-wheel disc brakes, six-speed stick, a thumping LS3 fuel-injected V8 and so much more. So yes, this is the ultimate turn-key muscle machine... and it's even a TV star!
Does this Camaro look familiar to you? Do you remember it from a 2013 episode of Counting Cars? Oh yeah, this is the full custom build that came from the masters at Count's Kustoms, and it's even signed by Danny “The Count” Koeker, Big Scotty, Horny Mike, Kevin Mack, and Ryan. And if you remembered that episode, you'll know they did a ton of work to get the Camaro looking so good. Let's start with that award-worthy paint. The glossy Brandywine Metallic has the appeal or red, but with much deeper and more sophisticated tones. And you know they replaced the body panel just to make sure that the sunlight flowed evenly over this whole custom creation. The complete professional paintwork and precision panels give the coupe the kind of luster that looks like candy apple red went over to the dark side. And while the first-gen Camaros had some of the most aggressive styling straight from the factory, with items like the cowl hood and full-width spoiler, this one has its intimidation turned way up with custom pieces. The expertly deleted front bumper and the custom grille with RS-style hidden headlights make this look like it could play the villain in every movie. Plus, the Z/28 striping has skulls airbrushed in the front, and the initials of Counts Kustoms in the rear. Brightwork is kept to a minimum with shaved door handles and a painted rear bumper for a more modern and sleek overall presentation. But there's still plenty of polished elements like the custom wheels that are made to look like classic Rally-style units (but they're really larger alloys with an aggressive 18/20-inch front/rear stance.)
Pop the remote door openers, and you'll see the interior is just as nicely upgraded as the exterior. Custom leather bucket seats provide you with the kind of modern bolstering you could never get in '68. Plus, the red stitching here works with the floor mats to give you a well-coordinated package. More than just the appearance, everything inside this car feels fresh – from the carpeting, to the door panels, to the window rubber – after all there is still on 17 miles on this since it was complete on the show! As a true restomod, you have all the best interior upgrades, including power windows, power seats, power locks, and R134a air conditioning. The stereo is a modern Kenwood AM/FM/CD/XM touchscreen interface that controls the full subwoofer stereo system. And even the full RideTech air ride controls are mounted within the center console. But as much as those features are great for everyone, the best treats are reserved just for you. The wood and chrome steering wheel is grippy, and beyond that are the dual pods that now have a cool blue glow for the upgraded speedo and tach. And as you grab the shifter, you'll realize that it shows 50% more gears than you'd ever expected in a '68 Camaro.
The Count's crew knows how to make engines look fantastic, and so you'll love popping the hood at car shows. But not only are crowds going to be marveling at all the polished components, but also they'll love that this full custom build has modern Chevy LS-power. The fuel-injected 5.2-liter LS3 V8 is a very cool powerplant to have. After all, they were part of the Camaro's latest revival, and they are good for well over 400 horsepower right out of the box. This V8 inhales deeply through a performance air intake, and exhales with authority as the long tube headers feed the rumbling dual exhaust. The modern Tremec six-speed manual means you have full control over this monster motor and its thunderous soundtrack. And take some time to look at all the undercarriage photos. After all, if you know the show, you know that this car is on a new frame. Plus, it has been upgraded with the air ride suspension, tubular A-arms up front, and a reinforced rear. Plus, there's power steering, Continental Extreme Contact tires, and Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes.
This is the full custom build that knows how to back up its looks with stunning performance. It's the one TV star you can meet that will never disappoint in-person. So If you're ready for all eyes to be on you, call today!!!
