Bruce Philbrook, left, and Brandon Baker teamed up to transform three Camaro hulks into this sleek Viper Red '69 Camaro for Baker's wife, Toni. Philbrook, her father, had built an earlier Camaro for her when she was in high school, but it was sold to help finance a home purchase.
Perhaps the most unique, eyecatching modification to the Camaro was the addition of a 1959 Impala dashboard, which was narrowed to fit. The original instrument pods were used to give the car a one-of-a-kind interior.
A 5.3 liter truck engine fitted with an LSI intake was slipped under the cowl induction hood and mated to a 4L60 automatic overdrive transmission. The stainless steel engine cover was fabricated to the builders' specifications and is part of an even larger covering used when the car is in show trim.
The factory bucket seats and door panels were redone with reproduction reupholstery kits, while a custom fiberglass center console was built to house the stereo, Lokar shifter and a pair of oversized polished cupholders. Note the Impala logo above the glove box.
