West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and beautiful example of this stylishly customized with no expense spared all American classic muscle car - a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS 2 Door Hardtop Coupe with a built LS3 Corvette 6.2L V8 engine which is matched to a 6 speed 'Tremec Magnum Sport' Manual transmission!
As the standard engine in the fifth-generation Camaro SS and C6 Corvette, the high-revving, deep-breathing LS3 6.2L is poised to go down in history as one of Chevrolets best and most versatile engines. The LS3 is filled with components designed for high performance and longevity. The aluminum block is filled with a sturdy reciprocating assembly that combines with L92-type rectangular-port heads to deliver a 10.7:1 compression ratio. Connect & Cruise Crate Powertrain Systems provide factory-matched engine-and-transmission combinations that include specially calibrated controllers and wire harnesses designed for retrofit installations in older vehicles. `
The car also boasts the 6spd manual 'Tremec' transmission; this is the centerpiece of Tremecs high-performance line-up. The Magnum 6-speed takes the state-of-the-art OEM technology and pairs it with the most popular features of the TREMEC TKO 5-speed. It has two overdriven gears and is a strong, yet refined transmission. This transmission has many of the same internal parts as todays most celebrated factory muscle cars including the Dodge Challenger, Viper and the Chevrolet Camaro giving you refinement where you want and strength where it counts.
