Not long after completing our Mail Order Camaro build which featured the then-new reproduction DynaCorn body as the foundation, we were contacted by an overseas customer wanting a ’69 convertible Camaro. After discussing the project with the customer, it was decided we would build the car using another DynaCorn body as the basis.

 

The Mail Order Camaro was a relatively simple car built primarily to test the theory that a complete car could indeed be built using all reproduction and aftermarket parts, the Red Hot Camaro was going to be a bit more involved. This car would make use of more hot-rod pieces in the suspension and drivetrain, the interior would be more upscale, and the body and finish would be a step higher as well. The Red Hot Camaro would be like a Mail Order Camaro that went to finishing school.

 

A look at the specifications below will show you all the hardware used in the build. The finished product came out very well, and once again 99% of the car was built using aftermarket or reproduction parts.
